Question about Panasonic TH-42PX60U Television

2 Answers

We had a multi-region DVD player hooked up to our TV, but after we replaced our TV with the TH-42PX60U, we could not view our region 2 DVDs any more. We basically gave up on region 2 and now have a PS3 hooked up instead of our old DVD player, but I'd really like to be able to watch my region 2 DVDs (I have some that are not available in Region 1 format). Can anything be done? Thanks.

    Thanks for the swift reply, eagle338. It is a Panasonic DMR-ES25. It's not hooked up right now, but it'd be nice to know if it's possible to get it back up and running again.

    But isn't the problem with the TV? The DVD player itself used to play region 2 DVDs through our old TV with no problems.

    Only region 1.

  • erinmillerx Nov 09, 2010

    We have a multi region player (Panasonic DMR-ES25) which used to play both region 1 and 2 DVDs.
    Then we got a Panansonic TH-42PX60U TV.
    After that, we could not view our region 2 DVDs anymore.
    Is there a reason this model TV cannot display region 2 DVDs, even though we have the multi-region player? Can anything be done?

    Thanks.

Sorry there is nothing you can do. The Tv is programed to only see region 1 dvds. You will not beable to watch the region 2 dvds because of the software on the tv

If you can get me the model number of the DVD player, I will see if I have a hack for that.

Hack wanted to enable multi region

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.

Multi regional DVD player?


Hi,

To my knowledge, yes it is. The Panasonic NV-VP32 will play all DVDs.

However, to be able to view multi region DVDs (PAL/NTSC), the Panasonic NV-VP32 must be connected to a multi system TV (capable of both PAL/NTSC).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

What is a region code 2 dvd player


Most of the DVDs available in India mostly use Region 2, Region 4 and Region 5 codes, all together in one DVD.

Education on region dvd codes:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

If you want something on the cheaper side try a Philips DVP5982 Multi-Region DVD Player.

hope that helps!
