I have a Panasonic DMR-EX79 DVD player. It won't play regular DVDs. The setting rating is at level 8. The DVDs are region 4 and includes one i have played before on our previous player. The player is about 4 months old but i haven't used it for DVD playing until now. Message reads "This disc may not be played in your region." Many Thanks to anyone who can help.

Dvd's and the players are set in the factory on regions so that a person should not be able to view a disk that was sold in another region that the one of the player. More extensive explanations on why this exists can be found here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code
To put it simply your Panasonic has been sold in the wrong region. You need to take it back to the shop and either replaced with the correct one or the firmware must be updated to be converted to your region. In either case this must be done for free, it was their mistake and they must fix it for you, you can't do anything about it.
BTW if you try a region hack you can mess it up and lose all warranty so don't do it.

DVDs are region coded. This means that they will only play on a DVD player from the region the DVD was produced to be watched in. For example, an Australian DVD is Region 4. It will only play on a Region 4 player. If you try to play it on a player that is set for a different region, it will probably not play. One way around this is to get hold of a multi region player. These are widely available. Alternatively, you should be able to watch the DVD on your computer, although you may need some region free software if your computer's dvd player has been locked. Usually computer DVD players will allow you to play DVDs from any region a few times and then they will lock to a particular Region Code. If you are in North America, you will need a PAL player. The only other thing you may be able to do is to unlock your existing player to convert it to region free. Many DVD players can be unlocked but you would need to find the unlock information for your paticular player. Hope this helps....

Looking for the regional code for a Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD/VCR combo in Australia and a Panasonic DMR-ES30V DVD/VCR combo. Can you please tell me how you put the code in. Thanks


Region codes are preset in the DVD unit. DVDs are encoded with a region code and are only playable if the DVD player is programmed with the same code as the DVD itself. If you want to play Australian DVDs, you will want to use code 4. There are 9 codes. Check below to find out what region each code is for:

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

You usually may only change a region code 3 times before it becomes permanent. You need to enter the menu-setup options in your DVD player and you'll want to look for "region code".
