I have a GPX portable DVD player that is showing wrong region. It was playing these same disks before and now it will not?? Any help?????


Commercial DVD disks are "keyed" to a specific "region".
USA is in "Region 1", and Europe is in a different region.

Some DVD players allow you to "switch region", but only up to FIVE times, and then it "locks" into one region.

Multi region code for philips hts 3090 dvd player


With your set on and without disc in the tray:

1. Press PLAY from your remote control
2. Press the following button sequence: 1590 2379 390
3. Press PLAY again

This will release the region verification in your home theater (region free). However, some DVDs (multiregion in particular) will not play, since they require region detection from the player unit.

I've done this to my 3090 and been using it like this for 3 years.

I bought a DVD and I played it on my laptop. It worked on the laptop but when i put it into the DVD player it wouldn't play. So I tryed playing the DVD in the PC and it also worked on there. Again I...


DVD movies have region codes, and they typically only play on a player or DVD-ROM drive sold in the country where the DVD movie was sold.

The actual region code is in one byte on the DVD (digital versatile disc). The DVD player or drive has a region code in its firmware. Personal computer DVD-ROM players often have the code in the software or MPEG-2 decoder. The two codes must match for the player or drive to play the movie. The code is also printed on the back of a DVD package, superimposed on a small image of the globe.

DVD regional locking is used to control which DVD movies play in which countries or groups of countries. Movies are often released on different dates around the world. Region 1 has its own player that will only play Region 1 discs. Likewise, Region 2 players can only play Region 2 discs and not play any of Region 1's discs. The six codes are:
  1. United States and Canada
  2. Europe and Japan
  3. Southeast Asia
  4. Latin America and Australia
  5. Russia, rest of Asia and Africa
  6. China
please check the DVD region code again and what PLAYER u are using to play on PC / LAPTOP??

where did you buy the DVD player??

I have a DVD player that plays New Zealand DVD's and has "4" on the back of the player but I am wanting to play an American DVD which I have been told are "1". Can I decode my video...


I've heard there is a way to do it with a chip.

Some say DVD players can be changed by changing the region in the control panel setting however it typically disables playback unless it is programmed for the right region as listed on the back of the player as well as the owners manual.

The best way to do it is to use a DVD player on your computer. You can go into the properties of the DVD player and change the region that way.

I have a dell dimension 2400 series, now i find i cannot play dvds on it i get a note up 2 to say "windows media player cannot play dvd compatible dvd decoder not fitted " what can i do to...


Hi,
are you trying to play DVDs from a different region ?
PC DVD Drives, are region set to the computer, if you have a region 1 dvd drive, trying to play region 2 dvds et,c. it won,t let you. theres a couple of ways around this. go to Afterdawn ( on the web ) and download a region free dvd device.
Solution 2. try to obtain any updates or re-install windows media player. suggest player version 9 or above.

Mike @ compurepair.

p.s finally is to check that your drive, indeed supports DVD Or certain types of dvd media. i.e DVD+ Or DVD- some only support One type.
