I HAVE A PANASONIC DMR-ES18 DVD PLAYER, IT SHOULD PLAY ALL REGIONS 1-5 BUT IT WONT PLAY MY DISK FROM REGION 1. HOW CAN I CHECK TO SEE IF THE PLAYER IS SET CORRECTLY, OR CHANGE THE PLAYERS REGION CODE?

    THIS PLAYER DID NOT COME WITH ANY DISK, AND DOES NOT HAVE A REGION SETUP MENU. A COMPUTER DVD PLAYER WILL DO THAT, BUT A HOME DVD PLAYER DOES NOT HAVE THIS OPTION. I WILL NEED A CODE TO ACCESS THE DVD PLAYERS REGION MENU SECRET SETUP TO CHANGE IT TO A REGION 1 PLAYER.

Hello,

Go into the setup menu for your DVD player, and there is an option to change regions. Be careful, you are only able to select a different region a limited # of times. If you can't find the setup menu, there may have been a programming disk that came with it. Check your owner's manual if you don't see the menu option.

    You are mistaken, home DVD players do have region settings if the manufacturer created it as an international product (change power cord for country, etc).

    Maybe this will help you, maybe it won't. On my Panasonic DVD Player, circa 2000, The DVD region setting is located under Setup / Advanced Setup / Language / Region. I still have 5 region changes left.

    Per Page 51 of the manual for your drive, it is only able to play regions 2 and 3. The front cover of the manual indicates that it is able to play disks marked as region 2, 3 and ALL.

    Region 1 is not listed in the manual.

    There is information about hacking your drive for different region #s, or going region free altogether, but that is outside the scope of Fixya as it is against the Terms and Conditions of use.

We put a DVD into the player but it says it is not capable of reading those types of discs. Why wont it play and what can we do to fix it?


Just a thought, Is the DVD Region 2?

If not will not play, you will need a Universal Player "ALL REGIONS" or obtain a download to up-date your player to "All REgions".

Caught out myself. Always check you Disc is Region 2.
