Advent problems


Dear Stephanie,

Check at the rear of your DVD player or in its manual which region is it set to. It has a symbol that resembles a globe with a number inside.

In the U.S., players are set for region 1. Latin America and Australia for region 4. Europe and Middle East for region 2 and so on. Please check: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

Maybe you are trying to use a DVD for region 2 (from Europe) in a DVD player in U.S., that only accepts region 1 discs. Please, check the label on your DVD or the back of its box.

Another reason could be that you are trying to play a recorded DVD in a format that is not read by your device, like DVD-R or DVD+R.

Hope you may find this information useful!

Best regards,

Miguel Luiz Martins

How do i get wrong region off my dvd player so it will play dvds


If you are in region 1 for DVD's you can't play any other region. You have to buy the right region DVD for the player. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

My sylvania dvd player says wrong region when i put n a dvd..but it will play cds


Your cd's may be region free but dvd's unless stated as region free will only play on a player that is capable of playing the region shown on the dvd unless you have a region free dvd player.

Can't play dvd--wrong region


Commercial DVDs are released with region codes that restricts in which part of the world they can be played. Consumer DVD players sold in those regions are pre-configured with the correct region code for the given sales area. The United States, Canada, Bermuda, and U.S. territories are region 1. Europe (except Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus), The Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Greenland and region 2.

DVD's wont play - says wrong region but they are compatible


To change the Region code on your player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

I just bought a dvd player " all region" model DVP5140/37 but I have an italian region 2 and this dvd wont play it. i EVEN HAVE A REGION 4 DVD AND IT WONT PLAY THAT EITHER.what can I do, is...


You might not have the multi-region version of this dvd player, they do make them, but cost more. You might have the regular version. Someone posted the instructions on Amazon to make it region free.

To make it region code free follow these instruction:
1. Turn on the unit
2. Open the loading tray
3. Press the "Setup" button on the remote
4. Navigate to the "Preferences" page using the right arrow key
6. Press the down arrow once to enter the Preference page
5. Enter 138931 on the remote
6. You will now see the current region code displayed
7. Use the Up/Down arrow keys to select the region required or "0" for all regions
8. Press the "Play" button on the remote

Dvd region codes


Try this (for a LH-T360SE)

Open disk tray and press 0000, a two line menu appears with "Edit Region _" and "Region Code:x" put in required region (presumably 0) and press enter. Region Code:0 appears. power off and enjoy.

region code 0 is No region restrictions.
