I have had this problem before too and my solution was taking out the dvd and cleaning it then put it back in also you may need to clean your dvd system too.

Region


I recently had the same problem. It means that it can only be played on a DVD player from another region of the world, like France. It will never work on your DVD player & must be returned (I had ordered mine online & had a tough time getting my money back - it educated me to verify every purchase compatible to US Region).

I purchased a region 1 dvd, but my dvd player only plays region 2 dvd's. I've got a JVC XV-N30 player. Can you please tell me how I can modify my player in order to get him played my region 1 dvd?


If you get a magic marker and write "Region Free" on the underside of your DVD player (make sure it is on the underside as otherwise it won't work). This will ensure all disks will work in your DVD player, even floppy disks believe it or not.

XBOX games are region locked.

You cannot play the disc from other regions.

For example, in USA we cannot play games from United Kingdom or Japan.

It is like DVD Movies, which are region locked.

The PS3 Games are not, you can play them from any region.

Try to contact XBOX to see if they can send you a replacement for your original xbox for your region.

God Bless You!

I have a sumsung dvd-L300 portable player. Do I need a converter or transformer to use it in Europe?


I think so, DVD region codes are a DRM scheme. DVD videodiscs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of theworld in which they can be played.

Thecommercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be soldin a given place not play discs encoded for a different region (region0 discs are not restricted).

so if you want to making the DVD region free,watch and copy multi region-coded DVD on any DVD player and any DVDplayer software, back up protected DVD to computer and convert DVDMovie to play on iPod iPhone PSP, et portable players, you have toremove DVD region code.


Here we have one great software "Daniusoft DVD Ripper"which can remove region code from any DVD. Not just remove DVD regioncode and copy DVD to computer with 1:1 lossless quality, Daniusoft DVDRipperis also capable of converting DVD Movie to other Video auidoformat to play on portable players like iPod, iPhone, Zune, PSP,Blackberry, etc.

I HAVE A DISC IN U.K. AND EUROPE REGION . BUT CAN'T PLAY MY DVD PLAYER. HOW CAN I PLAY THE DISC IN OUR PLAYER? MODEL IS DVP 3256 ,DVP 3258,DVP 3268 . WITH USB . ANY OPTION TO PLAY THE OTHER REGION DISC....


HELLO
This sounds like the old problem of your player trying to play a disc from another region, when your player is set for another. What you need to do is HACK the player and set it for ALL REGIONS (0), usually via the remote control.
Try this website for DVD player hacks: www.videohelp.com
You will find hacks for many makes and models listed here. Contrary to belief, it is NOT illegal to hack a DVD player.

WRONG Region error . Philips DVD65K


Each DVD player is designed only to read discs froma certian region of the globe, and they are labelled 1 through 6 (or ALL). Australian players are designed only to play Region 4 discs. United States discs are Region 1. It is illegal to change the Region code on a DVD player, so I can't tell you how to do it (ironically, it is the most frequently asked question about dvd players on Fixya.com - global world), but there are videos on YouTube that will show you how to do it - I would just enter "philips region code dvd" as your seacrh term. You won't find that exact model, but one of the codes in the video should work. Note that you will only be able to change the region code three times on a Philips - after that you will be locked out. So change it to Region 1 once, and never change it again.

Wont play saying unknown disk


If the region setting is correct and won't even read a cleaning disc, there's not much you can do. Either the DVD drive or the Main board (aka MPEG board) is faulty and will have to get it repaired. I'm not sure about UK, but in Australia, Bush manufacturing warranty period for DVD players is 12 months.
