Question about Pioneer DV120K Player

Open Question

I bought today a Pioneer DVD Player DV120K in Israel written number 5 and in the shop it was able to read DVD number 2 (from France)... At home, I've got problems to connect it... and finally when I've connected it it doesn't read anymore DVD number 2 with the message 'can't play this area code DVD, because during the installation process I've done "reset to the intials settings", adn it seems it works too much!!! Now it's reading DVD number 3 (sold in Israel) but no more the number 2... I thought I can be able to play any DVD region (2 or 3 are the ones I want to use) without doing anything between??? Or each time I need to to a switch??? My DVD Player Pioneer DV-120K is suddently not region free...What I've got to do now to make it read AGAIN for the first time at home this DVD bought in France number 2??? Thanks to answer... Because I've changed mu DVD player juts for this purpose to be able to read any number 2 or 3 zones DVD... my last one was the Pioneer DV310 bought 2 years ago, but it was not able to read at all DVD zone 2 and not able to be fixed at all to do it -what I was told in the shop who sells me this new one today!!! I'm impatient to read the answer... Thanks

SOURCE: my pioneer dvd player model dv-310 used to be able

We used a usb on the DVD and now we can't watch normal DVDs on it. We insert the DVD and the player just rejects it and opens the draw.

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

Pls i have a pioneer dvd dv575a which i use at home and now when i switch it on,its written on the screen that i should select region. and i have been giving three options (reg 2,reg 3 or 5).pls help me...

Depends on what region is your dvd movies are from.
You can check that by looking on the back cover of the dvd movie box.
You'll see a globe with a number on it.
Match the region in the dvd player to the region of the dvd movie.
If you have no dvd movies next to you, you can use this map from Wiki:

Hope that helps!
