Question about Pioneer DV-383S DVD Player

1 Answer

I have a Pioneer DV-383-S DVD player. When I switch on the player the player goes to a Regional Settings Screen where it prompts me to select a region code from 1-6. (Player?s Region Settings) <1> : Region <2> : Region <3> : Region <4> : Region <5> : Region <6> : Region Pick Out One Of These! But I am unable to select any region using the remote control or the buttons on the player. It does not proceed beyond that screen. I am unable to go to any menu. I have tried resetting the player by pressing the STOP button and then the STANDBY button to switch it on, changing from NTSC>PAL>AUTO by pressing the FORWARD button and the STANDBY button. Nothing is working. Anyone else using this player and facing a similar issue..

I have a DVD player, I don't know the brand name. It doesn't say it on the DVD player. I think it's a dvd player dd 383. I need a code for the skandia universal remote control, please.


The closest model to what you describe is a Pioneer DV-383 or DVD-383 and the following remote codes may work for you:

BW-0392
6 in 1 Pre Programmed Remote Control DVD Pioneer codes:

0175 0185 0665

It is the closest I could get. Not sure if it will help at all. Give it a try.

To switch your Pioneer DV-400V DVD player back to an interlaced video mode after selecting a progressive scan mode and loosing picture, follow these steps:

  1. Switch everything off.
  2. Reconnect using the supplied video cable (standard RCA Red White & Yellow).
  3. Switch the player to standby.
  4. Press and hold the Standy/ON button while pressing the |<< button.
This resets your player to default video output, allowing you to reconfigure your HDMI settings to 1080i, and then reconnect your HDMI cable.

I hope that helps.

Hi. I´ve just buy a used Pioneer dv 383 and it works OK with Cd´s, but when I try to play a DVD on it, it turns off. Can u help me?


There are 2 lasers in it. One for dvd and one for cd. The dvd lens is overheating and causing it to shut down. Better to get a refund and buy a new one. They are very cheap at WalMart.

Pioneer region free code DV-340, DV-343, DV-444, DV-545


Introduction
The Px4x DVD Upgrade is an advanced modification to your DVD player, which adds extra features and enables you to get more from your machine. The upgrade supplements the DVD player and in no way harms the playback quality or removes any performance features of the DVD player.

Main Features
The DVD Upgrade adds the following features to your DVD player:
 Multiregion capability
 Macrovision disable

Players Supported
The following DVD players are supported by this version of the DVD Upgrade:

 Pioneer DV-340, Pioneer DV-343
 Pioneer DV-444
 Pioneer DV-545

Modification Details
Multiregion selection
Nearly all DVD discs on the market today are encoded with a specific "region" in mind and are made in such a way that a disc designed for "region 1" will not play on a player designed for "region 2". This is so that the Hollywood studios can control the release of titles in different geographical regions all over the world. Our upgrade allows you to select between regions 1 to 6.
Macrovision & CGMS disable
All DVD players have a system called Macrovision built in to the player, which is designed to stop the copying of DVD discs to video. However, this system can have adverse affects on some projectors. For this reason the DVD Upgrade disables Macrovision to solve any problems.

Operating Instructions
You can select the region code by remote. This region will be tried first when playing a disk.
Due to this design, the modification will work on the RCE (Regional Code Enhancement) protected DVD’s. In some cases it will be necessary to insert a conventional (non RCE protected) disc before playing a RCE protected disc. Follow the instructions as detailed bellow:

1. Turn the player on without a disc in it
2. On the remote control, press 'SETUP'
3. Use right arrow to select 'General'
4. Use down arrow to select 'Basic'
5. Press 'ENTER' on the remote control
6. Press 'Display' on the remote control
You should see the region code and OSD version that the player is set to
7. Press 'Condition/Memory'
8. Press '1', '2', '3', '4', '5' or '6' to change the region code of the player
The text will disappear
9. Press ' Display ' on the remote to control the region
10. Press 'SETUP' on the remote to exit. Play the disc
This dident work for me but mayby work for you.

I live in germany and want to play dvd,s from Australia, Pioneer DV-360 from german store


Most DVD players I've seen are either multi-regional or one-region units. The DVD player you bought might be a one-region device. I'd check on that first. If it is, then you'll only be able to play DVD's made for that particular region. If it is multi-regional, look in the manual or go to Pioneer's website to possibly find the codes.
