SOURCE: i have a sanyo dvd player dwm-395. how do i unlock it w/o remot

For the DVM-390 model, I believe this solution should work on the DVM-395 model - Push and hold down the Open/Close button until "UN-LOC" appears on the FL display (or "Disc Tray Unlocked" appears on the TV screen).

Make sure you have the right setting on the DVD Combi making sure you have enabled SCART or RGB out.

SOURCE: region code for sanyo progressive scan 7200

For that you need to do a google for "mymodel region free" or "region free hack"

Not all dvd players are capable of this often very simple modification (usually just involves the remote control and a combination of keys)

Your search will turn up a lot of sharks that want money for the hack

IGNORE THEM

There are a lot of sites where the information is free.

I am unsure of FIXYA's policy on this topic so would prefer not to get my @ss kicked. That is why I gave you the search terms rather than site links

SOURCE: Hi,my sanyo dvd player model

Your problem may be due to unsupported media - such as using Dual Layer disks, or a data type that is not recognized - such as Divx.

Videohelp.com maintains a database of DVD players and their limitations. Limitations are in the form of acceptable media, data format saved to the media, etc. Additionally, there are some 40 individual comments on this player, too. There's far too much info to paraphrase here, so I'll direct you to your player via this link.

I think that once you know what types of media and format of the data your player can read, you'll be in good shape. Please rate my reply - thanks!

The music association does not want users to play DVDs from other countries. Your DVD player will switch countries about three times then lock up. Contact the OEM, they have to do that by law in the US.

Here are some hacks to resolve the problem.

I have the 5083 dvd player, but it only seems to play region 2 dvds. I've tried going through the menus, but it asks for a country code. The codes are two letters A-Z. I'm assuming that there's...


The Country Code is just related to the Subtitles etc and nothing to do with the Region.
Most DVD Players/Recorders are set to Play the Region of DVD from the Country they were purchased from. Only some are Region Free (will play DVDs from any Country) when purchased.

Some DVD Players/Recorders can be changed to Region Free by simply entering a code on the Remotes handset or by following instructions to enter a Service Menu and change it their.

Unfortunately yours can only be changed by updating the Firwmare which is a risky and difficult process even if you know what you're doing. I wouldn't advise anyone to try it without previous experience as you could render your DVD Player/Recorder useless.

How can i watch dvds on this old sanyo tv?


does your tv have a scart socket or is it pre scart, if it does, and you connect the dvd player via the scart then the tv should auromativally switch to av when the dvd player is switched on. failing that, if you have no scart, then the only way you can watch dvd is by connecting a flylead from dvd player to tv, (take out antenna and put it in that socket) and then start a search if you can, normally the buttons for this are behind a flap somewhere on the tv. if you have no scart or a way of tuning tv, then i dont think you can watch dvd through that tv

DVDs are region coded. This means that they will only play on a DVD player from the region the DVD was produced to be watched in. For example, an Australian DVD is Region 4. It will only play on a Region 4 player. If you try to play it on a player that is set for a different region, it will probably not play. One way around this is to get hold of a multi region player. These are widely available. Alternatively, you should be able to watch the DVD on your computer, although you may need some region free software if your computer's dvd player has been locked. Usually computer DVD players will allow you to play DVDs from any region a few times and then they will lock to a particular Region Code. If you are in North America, you will need a PAL player. The only other thing you may be able to do is to unlock your existing player to convert it to region free. Many DVD players can be unlocked but you would need to find the unlock information for your paticular player. Hope this helps....

Subtitles on Sanyo DVD Player Model DMW-380


For the DVM-390 model, the above problem can be due to the TV Guardian (TVG) mode. I would go to the intial setting options and under Language turn the TVG mode to "Off" and see if that allows the subtitle languages to appear on screen.

Multi region dvd unlocker


This can only be done on some dvd players unfortunatly. They are locked to regions because of the video format types that vary from country to country.
