I have searched and confirmed that it is not possible to region unlock this model dvd player. It is locked at a hardware level which means there is no possible way to unlock it. I am so sorry about that.

Thanks
Tim

My Samsung smart tv & my dvd/bluray player recorder I bought at same time. Haven't had blurays til now & wont play at all. Rental ones did now I've bought my own & they don't play!Not tech minded.HELP


Each DVD player is assigned a code for the region in which it's sold. For example USA/Canada are Region 1 players. DVD players will refuse to play discs not coded for its specific region. In effect, this means that a DVD purchased in one country is normally unreadable on a DVD player bought in another region.

If your rental DVDs work in the player then there is nothing wrong with your DVD player. If you have purchased DVDs that do not work the problem is with the DVDs you have, not with the DVD player.

Dvd player error message invalid region code


You can not fix this, DVDs are coded in such a way that a for instance a DVD sold in the European market can't be played on a DVD player sold in the USA. You can buy region free DVD players, but they are not sold at the local electronics stores, they are available on eBay I'm told.

Bought a dvd from England.JVC dvd player will not play dvd.it is on stop and will not play.


American DVD players will not play European DVDs because they use different region codes, you can normally play them on computers, but DVD players are normally coded for only one region.

Hi I read an answer about unlocking a DVD player HCT 501U to make it regional free. Something makes me think there is something more. The answered was to a guy who bought the dvd player in USA and tried...


The "Lock" is firmware not hardware and controlled by the software, (the flag number of the control line from the Disc) situated within the uProcessor in the DVD/CD Player.

Try

I bought a Samsung BD C6900 from USA designed for region 1 and A . Living in Europe I cannot play my european DVDs and BDs ? Are there any solutions to change the region code ?


Here is a solution: http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks/samsung-bd-c6900/10895

Please note, however, that even after region code hack, it may remain NTSC only, so if you are planning to play European DVDs recorded with PAL system, it may not work.

I can not play any european DVD on my dvp fx930 bought in USA.Please help i live in Belgium.


you have to change the DVD region setting of the machine to be able to play those european discs. Look for a code to make it region-free if you can. Just do search in the net you might be lucky.
