Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I recently bought a self help DVD, that is unfortunately not available in Australia, over the internet from an American company and by the time I paid the shipping cost it had become a very expensive DVD. Only to find when I got it that it would not play due to regional codes so I contacted the company that sold me the DVD who told me to contact the product support of LG who told me to go to your web site to see if you coul help me unlock the regional code for my DVD player which is 4 to 5 years old and the model name is DVD PLAYER/VIDEO CASSETTE RECORDER MODEL :V181 I would be very grateful for any assistance you could give Jude -- judewestlake@hotmail.com

    Hi thanks for your answer unfortunately it did not work, I had the player on and in DVD mode I tried it with the American DVD in the player and with no DVD in the player, I tried it before the regional code came up and before the regional code came up but when I pushed paused it would go to the circle with the slash through it for stop? Any more suggestions? P.S. and now my computer is playing up so if I don't get back to your reply straight away it is just because I have to clear out the cookies so I can communicate with you! Thanx Jude

    Thanks for your answer unfortunately it did not work, this is my second attempt of replying to your suggestion as my computer has now decided to play up and I don't think my first reply went through! I attempted your suggestion with the player on and in DVD mode, I tried it with the American DVD in the player and with the player empty, I tried pushing pause before the "check regional code" came up and after it had come up, but it just kept going to the circle with the slash through it, the symbol for stop. I would be grateful for any further suggestion you might have but if I do not reply straight away it is because I have to clear out the cookies from my computer so I can communicate with you more smoothly. Thanx Jude

    I have another code that will work. The previous codes worked with some units but not others. Try this and let me know

    With the cd tray open, hit 0000 then a screen will come up where u
    enter the region code - make it 0 then you press pause and it's done!! I
    found this has worked for many of the same LG models and has been confirmed for your model!

    If my first solution did not work, here is a more complex.

    Select DVD mode
    1. Open the tray. Remove any disk and leave it open.
    2. Press the PAUSE button
    3. Key in 314159
    4. Press "0" when you see region code on the display
    5. Press the PAUSE button
    6. Turn off the player and the turn it on again.

I paid for some products last night with my card with Pay Pal for Downton Abbey products, this came to $208.00 after I paid for these things then It came up that they could not post to Australia how


This may be due to a certain pay tv company in Australia that pays for exclusive rights to the latest tv shows and delays the release of dvd's in Australia until they finish screening it on pay tv. Examples of this anti competitive monopolist behaviour is Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones latest season , Walking Dead, Falling Skies season 4 which is being screened on pay tv but not available on DVD in Australia..
If you do not get a reversal of the charges log into paypal and dispute the transaction on the basis of non delivery

I bought a game inported from japan but when i played, it wont let me due to a region pattern , and i dont kno what that mean


Hello there,
Video games, just like DVD, have regional restrictions placed on them. If you buy a game from Europe, you will only be able to play them on consoles designed to work in Europe. This is the same for Japan, America, Australia, etc. Unfortunately, there is no legal way for you to be able to play a Japanese bought game on an American system or vica versa.
Here is some more information on "Regional Lockout." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regional_lockout

My son brought a disk over the Internet he is unable to play it


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

for DVDs you are in region 4, america is in region 1
the only other region that it would play from is south america

so it will not work untill you find a dvd player that plays DVDs from all regions

i would try and get your money back from the company and say it doesnt work (act dumb) dont go saying its wrong region. just say it doesnt work

and if you want to watch the DVD buy it from austrailia

Vista


Unfortunately, one of Microsoft's less popular concepts when releasing Vista is the fact that Vista has no backwards compatability for programs or hardware. You will not be able to install those programs as long as you have Vista in your computer.
