Hi,

With the indulgence of XX,

May I ask if your TV is likewise multisystem? This particular model is not restricted to any region (as you have posted) but would require a compatible monitor/TV for what region the disc is intended for. To my knowledge, a Sharp DV NC2000:
1. Requires a Multi-system TV for full operation;
2. NTSC playback on multi-system TV
3. PAL Playback on PAL TV
4. PAL playback on NTSC TV (American TV) with the use of a special Video Converter or a Multi-System TV.
5. Plays and records PAL VHS only, does not record NTSC.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How can I change the region settings on my Sony DAV DZ870W many thanks, Shane


When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Google for the programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.

Regional code


You should contact the manufacture support to see if they have a version of firmware you can install in to the player to re-program it for the UK standard.

In most cases you will have to go out and buy a player that was originaly designed for the region where you are. You can also shop around to see if it is possible to have a multi-region player. In some locations these are legal to be sold.

Message,"This disc is not formatted to play in this region".


DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played. Discs without region coding are called all region or region 0 discs.
The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region (region 0 discs are not restricted). The purpose of this is to allow motion picture studios to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and, especially, price, according to the region. Many DVD players are or can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs.Region 1 Players/DVDs include: Canada, United States, US Territories, and Bermuda. See below:
Region code Area 0 Informal term meaning "worldwide". Region 0 is not an official setting; discs that bear the region 0 symbol either have no flag set or have region 1–6 flags set. 1 Canada, United States; U.S. territories; Bermuda 2 Western and Central Europe; Western Asia; Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland; United Kingdom, Turkey, French overseas territories 3 Southeast Asia; South Korea; Taiwan; Hong Kong 4 Australia; Oceania; Central and South America; Caribbean; Mexico 5 Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Africa, Central and South Asia, Mongolia, North Korea. 6 China, Hong Kong 7 Reserved for future use (found in use on protected screener copies of MPAA-related DVDs and "media copies" of pre-releases in Asia) 8 International venues such as aircraft, cruise ships, etc.[1] ALL Region ALL discs have all 8 flags set, allowing the disc to be played in any locale on any player.

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??

Got dvd from New Zealand and it is a pal programme and I cannot get it to play in UK.


Hello,
The reason your dvd player may not be working is that each dvd player has a region code that is designed to only work with dvds in that specific region to prevent pirated movies from being played. Here are the region codes:
  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
The code should be displayed with a sticker some where on the back of you dvd player that looks like a "globe with a number in it". You will have to visit the the manufacturers website of the dvd player to find out how to change or update the region code because the information is stored on a ROM chip inside the dvd player and is referred to as firmware, this same code is also imprinted on the dvds sold in your country and the code must match that of your dvds in order for it to play. So what you need to do is go to what company manufactured the dvd player example:Toshiba, Panasonic, etc and check the site to see if they allow you to be able to reset the region code to your countries setting. Hope this helps
