Question about Zenith DVB412 DVD Player
My DVD player is acting up--it is refusing to play a couple of DVDs, the error code says "This player is incompatible with the region coding of the disk". The DVDs are region 1, they are original discs and I have played them before on the same player. I tried putting other DVDs in and they play no problem, regardless of whether they are original or copied, and some of them are specifically Region 1 discs. Why would two of my DVDs now refuse to play? I am worried that eventually none of my DVDs will work. Have you guys seen this before?
I got two new disks to-day with pictures taken from 35mm slides. They will not play on my zenith znd400 dvd player. I wonder why??????

Hi lizmatt,i guess the dvd u have brought is from a foreign one. Region coding is how Hollywood studios stagger dvd
movie releases across the planet. These codes ensure that one country
doesn't get a DVD movie before the same movie is out in that country's
theatres. In their corporate omniscience, movie studios have carved the
planet into regions with each region having a specific code.
All DVD players and discs have region codes. A DVD player and disc must be of the same region or the disc will not play.
If you want to watch movies from other countries, you need a multiregion DVD player. This will allow you to play any disc from any region. However, because TV standards differ, you might need a specialized NTSC/SECAM/PAL TV or a DVD player that can output any signal to the standard your TV accepts.hope u get the point.
