Hi juferrer,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.

My pioneer dv-120k wont play australian or us cd's. Only home burnt copies of movies.


dvd players because of copyright info can only be set to one region code and can only play dvds from that region. Some players are set at factory some allow user to reset region usually a limited no. of times.
home burnrd dvds usually don't carry that info therefore no issue. So you need to reset player for appropriate region

Have an LG BH7520 player and cant play my region 2 dvd movies


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 player(region free). However, some DVDs (multi region in particular) will not play, since they require region detection from the player unit.

How do i change my region code back?


There are three options you can try: 1. download the DVD drive's firmware from the manufacturer and re-flash the drive's firmware, this will reset any region code in 99% of all DVD drives. http://www.ehow.com/how_2316521_flash-dv? 2. you can use software that, in realtime as you play the videos back, removes region code out of the file transfer stream from DVD to playback software. The best software to do this that I know of is called "AnyDVD". http://www.slysoft.com/en/anydvd.html 3. use region free DVD playback software like VLC, which is freeware. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ The first option is the riskiest, if something fails while flashing the firmware, it could disable the drive, but it is 100% FREE. The second option involves buying software and making sure its running before watching any DVD's in the future. The third option is probably the safest, cheapest, and simplest for you. The DVD drive is not going to prevent playback of a region 1 or 2 movie if its set to region 4, its the playback software that makes this decision. If you rely on commercial DVD playback software or Windows Media Player, they will not allow the playback. VLC is region free, it doesn't even check the region the DVD was produced for.

DVD Player D1816 shows Wrong Regional Disc message


Many DVD players are preset to one region and if you use a DVD destined for any other region, the player will refuse to play. Some players have the option to change this to universal mode. Check your player's manual if yours has this facility.

Yes. You can play VCD movies and and Audio CDs on most players.

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??

This is for DVP31XXX series i hope it works all on DVP31 series. It has been tested on DVP3146K /51 and it has been worked...


1. Make sure there is no disc in the player.
2. Turn power off and on again.
3. Open the tray.
4. On the remote, hit 9879 and then 0. This changes unit to Region 0, meaning it'll play all regions.
5. Hit OK on the remote.

Good Luck Guys!
