Hello,

Sumsung usually has letters before the numbers.Would you check the model # at the back of the player for this

It could be something like DVD-D5124 or DVD-S5124, etc.

And do you know what region you are currently set for?

Since you may have DVD-S124 try this solution to become region free. It is quite convoluted, but most of these are so you may want to copy this and paste into Notepad or any writer program so you can save and print a copy.

[from videohelp.com]

1.)Leave disc tray empty.
2.)Power up player.
3.)Press Play and Stop on player simultaneously for around 3 sec.
Language screen should appear.
4.)Press "repeat" on remote, then 76884
5.)Press 9 for region free player.
6.)Press the open button on player.
7.)After 15 sec Press "Power/Standby on remote.

You should now be region free.

Regards,
Worldvet

Is there a region free code for Toshiba bdx 2400?


When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.

Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia
Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea
Region 6: China
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.

Use Google to find these programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.
Region codes are a legacy from the film makers, who only allowed the DVD format after the manufacturers promised the content could be made, so not everyone in the world could play one disk (copy protection)
No commercial player is made without region limitations.

Can't play uk DVD in Australia


To changethe Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware -Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVDdrive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have beenmade.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the4th change. Region 4 = Australia
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmwareto make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrongfirmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece ofsoftware (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region andPasskey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There areseveral available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

I have a region 2 samsung dvd player. All of a sudden the following message displays: '' Can not play disk. Wrong region code'' We have been playing the dvd for more than 1 year. What is the problem? Same...


What follows is mostly generic advice which applies to the vast majority of DVD players which I've tinkered with.

Your problem normally only happens if someone else has played a different region coded DVD on your machine. Normally you get seven chances to reset the region code before the machine locks itself permanently to one of them. before the changes are permanent the player will usually ask you if you want to change the region code when you try to play a disc from the wrong region.

Before doing anything else it's worth asking other members of your household if they have recently used the player, especially if you know anyone may have been using imported discs. If they've used up all of the region changing opportunities then hacking the machine might not work at all.

If you use a search engine you can search for DVD-P181 hack and these will guide you through the process to make your DVD player a multi-region machine, but there are three different hacks which I've seen for the same player so you may need to try them all.

Samsung region dvd problem


What I am saying is very generic, and does not apply to any one type of DVD player.

Apparently, for many models the region codes can only be changed a number of times, and then the unit locks. This is how most of these units are designed. It is probably locked to the last code used. The user instructions will normaly give an indication to the number of changes allowed.

When the unit is locked, it cannot be changed. The locked code is burned in to the EPROM of the DVD player.

You need a true multi region DVD machine. This would be a player that will not ever lock. There are some on the market. Carefully research this spec before making your purchase.

There are some models that will lock, but it is possible to patch them to not lock. The patching has to be done before the unit does get locked. You would have to explore the net to find this information.

SAMSUNG HR733 DVD RECORDER WILL NOT PLAY ANY REGION DISCS AT ALL


On page 45 of the user manual it says this:

Both the HDD & DVD RECORDER and the discs are coded
by region. These regional codes must match in order for the
disc to play. If the codes do not match, the disc will not play.
The Region Number for this HDD & DVD RECORDER is
described on the rear panel of the HDD & DVD RECORDER

If you changed the region codes on your player it will not work. They should be set back to 1 or whatever your model says on the back of the unit.

If this unit was purchased outside the United States, it may not work in the United States.

Here is a copy of the manual if you need it:

Incorrect region codde


This is for DVP31XXX series i hope it works all on DVP31 series. It has been tested on DVP3146K /51 and it has been worked...


1. Make sure there is no disc in the player.
2. Turn power off and on again.
3. Open the tray.
4. On the remote, hit 9879 and then 0. This changes unit to Region 0, meaning it'll play all regions.
5. Hit OK on the remote.

Good Luck Guys!
