The problem with Amazon DVDs purchased is the region codes each disc may contain. Since a majority of them would be from USA, and their region is 1, your player being region 4 would not support that code.
There is no fault here, it is just a restriction. Some discs work, some don't.
No one likes region restrictions - particularly on DVDs bought legally, and I doubt very much Panasonic would provide any information on unlock codes for you.
Be warned: if you do successfully find a hack to unlock your player so it becomes region-less, expect the risk of either the player failing later, or not reading any discs at all. I am sure there are 'region-free' players around now, which don't contain a restriction and can play ANY DVD any region.
On the other hand, if you have a DVD drive on your PC, and it is set to
region 0 or all regions, and the discs play fine in it, but not the player, then you could view those particular discs that way; you do not need to make any copies of any of the DVDs just to watch them.
NoThese days most of the companies are producing Region 0/ALL DVDs If you can get them OR buy a dual region DVD i.e. Region 2/4 which can play on both the regions. Most of the DVDs produced in India are multiregions. Choice is yours now
Try changing the system to whatever you use in brazil. In the us for example we use ntsc. Go to the menu, and see if its there. If not then there is nothing you can really do because diffrent system use a diffrent frequency altogether.
I live in Australia and have two Samsung DVD/VCR player recorders, DVD-VR375 and DVD-VR355. I could only play Region 4 DVDs until I pressed DVD, with no DVD in the units, pressed Menu then 76884, then 9, inserted a Region 1 DVd and it played in both units. Christina Weate
Below is a process to unlock the region's in that DVD player. There were a few methods try this one and post back letting me know how it goes.
1. Remove any disc in the tray.
2. Using the remote, turn the power off.
3. Turn the power on.
3. Open the empty tray.
4. Close the empty tray and wait until the player recognizes there is no disc in the tray.
5. Press "Menu, 1, 9".
6. A large rectangular area will appear in the bottom half of the
screen; in the middle of the rectangle will be a single number that
identifies the region to which the player is set.
7. Pressing the number keys on the remote will have no effect.
Instead, use the up or down arrows above and below the "enter" button
to change the region number. ("0" presumably is "region free".)
8. Once you have selected the region code (i.e., the number that now appears in the middle of the rectangle) press "enter".
9. Press the "opne/Close" button and the unit will save the selected code.
Hope this works let me know .Thank you for choosing Fixya! Feel free to leave a positive rating if this solution helps.
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.
