  • jo100864 Sep 15, 2010

    Sorry I don't know anything about rating you?

Region codes are copyrighted so we have no way to supply them.

In most models the unit cannot converted to multi-regions.So it will play only in the specified region in which it is applicable to.But in some unit models there is a procedure to turn the unit to multi region so it can play all region dvd.On all models the procedure to convert the unit to multi region is different.As you have not mentioned the exact model number of your unit.t will not be easy to give exact details.If in case there is a procedure to convert your unit to multi region.

Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    No there is no code actually provided by LG for LG HB965TXW home theater system:----
    The LG service center reply for this code to other expoerts are:---
    Thank you for emailing LG Electronics Australia.
    """""LG do not manufacture 'multi region' or 'Region free' DVD players, nor are we able to supply a code to change this.

    Australia is coded as region 4 and as such all LG players made for the Australian market will play Region 4 discs only. """".

    This is what LG has to say.
    But few others who had this same problem Got helped with this procedure.But its not 100% guaranteed .In some cases it helps and in some cases it dont.But still you can try.
    1. Open DVD Drawer
    2. Pressing "0000" on the remote.
    3. A screen appears saying NEW REGION CODE and displays the current one.
    4. Press "0" for all zones.
    5. Press the "select" button on the remote.
    6. Close the CD Drawer.
    7. Power off.



    Thanks for keeping updated with your query.

Hello, here is the way to tell which Region Your Particular System was Permanently set for:

Regional Codes

This unit has a regional code printed on the rear of the unit. This unit can play

only DVD discs labeled same as the rear of the unit or "ALL".

• Most DVD discs have a globe with one or more numbers in it clearly visible

on the cover. This number must match your unit's regional code or the disc

cannot play.

• If you try to play a DVD with a different regional code from your player, the
message "Check Regional Code" appears on the TV screen.

Posted on Sep 15, 2010

  • Lynn Carmody Sep 15, 2010

    So, basically if Region Code that is Printed on the back of the Unit is any othe Region besides "ALL: or "REGION 1", you will have to buy a different System thats set to Region1 OR buy DVD's that are compatible with your system..

Region code lock out


You can only change this code 5 times before it locks out the CD ROM drive. If it's locked out, you will need a new CD ROM drive. Your best bet is to get two external CD ROM drives and set one to region 1 and the other to region 4. This way you don't have to keep buying CD ROM drives. :)

I am in australia and play region 4 dvds I want to but a region 1 dvd will it play?


HELLO

Not if your machine is locked to Region 4! It's possible there may be a region hack for your machine, have a look on www.videohelp.com and go to the hacks section.

To see if it will play try to borrow a region 1 disc. If it does not play, then you'll only be able to play Region 4 discs only.

ALL THE BEST (:-)

I have a Samsung HT BD2 region 4, I go many region 1, they wont play, how can I make it play?


To unlock the DVD code its defends upon what region you belongs or from were you bought the DVD unit. Just click this site to hack the region code ; http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks

To keep it simple, this means that DVD players and DVDs are labeled for operation on within a specific geographical region in the world. For example, the U.S. is in region 1. This means that all DVD players sold in the U.S. are made to region 1 specifications. As a result, region 1 players can only play region 1 discs. That's right, the DVDs themselves are encoded for a specific region. On the back of each DVD package, you will a find a region number (1 thru 6).
The geographical regions are as follows:
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.

The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs


Hope it may help you;

Our Sony DVD player will not playimported DVDs from the UStates


1) those DVDs are coded in Region 1(Canada, United States; U.S. territories; Bermuda)
you will have to change the region code on the dvd-rom to region 1

2) if you bought the stand alone DVD player in the U.S. it will play region 1 dvds and nothing else(some dvd players will play region code 1-6)

3) to change the code in windows vista you'll have to go under the drive property's in the device manager go to the dvd region tab and set it to what ever the number on the back of the dvd is WARNING you only get 4 changes before the drive locks you out permanently then your stuck with what ever number you put in on the 4th try you've been warned

windows xp/2000/98/me
you'll have to change the region code from your software player again your limited on how many times you can change the region code before you have to reinstall the dvd player software

WILL MY DVD PLAY AREA 1 AND AREAV4 DVD'S?


Hi camonk2004,

It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.

Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind Regards,
H2H

Philips 7" DVD portable player


The PET702 will be a region 5 machine, whereas the UK DVDs are region 2.

DVD players from a particular region are designed to play only DVDs from the same region, due to copyright and distribution rights in each country or region.

However the PET702 can have the region protection removed by making it multi-region:

Switch on the PET702 and Open the tray.

Press SETUP button on the remote control, which will bring up the menu.

Highlight "PREFERENCES" and press OK.
coolsmiley.gif
Press [2], [5], [2], [3], [1], [5], [LEFT], [DOWN]

The screen will show: "Region Code: 2"
Press [1-6] to manually set the region OR [0] for multi-region.
coolsmiley.gif
Press [SETUP] to exit winksmiley.gif

You will now be able to play DVDs from anywhere in the world.

This is particularly useful, because region 1 DVDs from the US often come out when the movies are still in the cinemas over here. Region 1 DVDs can be bought perfectly legally by mail order or from the internet.
