A regional code is something embedded in a dvd so it can only be in the region of the world where the dvd was ment to be sold. In North America the letters NTSC are seen on all DVD's and games. In europe it says PAL. Look for the letters on the dvd.

    The NTSC usually shows up on games more than dvd's. The region codes for the dvd should be listed on the back of the case. There will be a picture of a globe with a number on it. The number in the globe indicates what region of the world this dvd was ment to be used in. If this is a "store bought" dvd it was sen to the wrong region. Thousands of these go to the stores and it isn't unheard of for a few to be sent to the wrong place. If this is a dvd you made your self or a "back up" copy the software that you used to convert the video file or the original file downloaded of the internet is set for the wrong region code. The codes are as follows.
    REGION 1/ USA, CANADA
    REGION 2/ WEST EUROPE,JAPAN,SOUTH AFRICA
    REGION 3/ SOUTH EAST ASIA
    REGION 4/ AUSTRALIA, SPANISH AMERICA (CENTRAL AMERICA)
    REGION 5/RUSSIA, EAST EUROPE, AFRICA
    REGION 6/ CHINA
    REGION 7/ RESERVED
    REGION 8/ SPECIAL INTERNATIONAL VENUES
    I tried to post a pic but the site I cant post it in the add a comment section. If you would like more info we can trade email or continue to post here. Which ever you are more comfortable with.

If the dvds which are "all regions" are recorded from a computer, your dvd player may not play them. I assume the dvds which have a region code have been professionally prepared. Sometimes, the cheap dvd players will play anything while the more sophisticated ones will give you trouble unless everything is just perfect.

Just bought an ONN dvd player and will not play burnt dvds. It says it will play DVD-R/RW. Any ideas to why it won't?


Burn your dvds in a proper way. If you burn your dvds as data dvd, it may not work on certain dvd players. Try different software or different PC to burn your dvds. Check the region code of your dvd player & the dvds burnt. They should match. You may find some region-free players.

Cannot find an unlocking code for my new dvd player: Toshiba XDE600KB. 40% of my dvd collection is from region 1, when my husband was in Canada. We are in England (region 2) & none of them will play.


Kelly - If you have the EU version the following will work if they haven't upgraded the firmware so it won't work. worth a try. I couldn't tell for sure from your post exactly which wouldn't play, the region 1s or 2s.
  • turn on dvd player
  • open tray
  • press "35147199" on remote
  • turn off dvd player
  • turn dvd player back on & you should have an open region player

If it's the US version there is no known Region Hack (At least that I could find).


Good Luck and Thanks for using Fix Ya.

I insert a disc. It loads, then either 1 or 2 shows in the display, but nothing functions and the disc will not play. It is a region 2 disc I tried


\usually when a disc won`t play ,it just displays "No Disc".

Is the disc matching the dvd code?
Is the region code correct?
Have you checked what discs the dvd will play, in front of manual.

If those are ok the dvd must have condensation in it.
Place in a warm room,turn on and leave for 2-3 hrs
Then try again fingers crossed for you.

Playing dvd's from another region


Your instruction manual for the Sony system will tell you what region DVDs it will play.  Also the back of the receiver unit will have a number that says what region it will play.  Look on the back of the DVD cases and they will have a region number.  Your player needs to match these numbers in order to play, unless the DVD is region 0, which means it can play on any DVD player. You can buy region free players on e-bay, which means the IT folks have tinkered around inside the DVD players to turn off the region coding.

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??

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".
