Greetings adidas164,

Generally the PALformat is unplayable in the US, however it would depend on the particular dvd player you are going to try to play it on. Your instruction manual would be the best place to determine if this was possible.

I hope this helps!

Why ask me my DVD Playback prohibited by area limitations ??? Pls help me now I wane watch movie thanks


Most DVD players are region-locked, meaning they will only play disks encoded in the location they are from, or disks without region-specific encoding. For example, if I bought a DVD player in Europe and tried to play a disc from the United States, it would not play. Unfortunately, in order to get past the "area limitations" you will either have to buy a DVD encoded in the same format as your DVD player, or set the player to a different region code (which often will lock the player after a certain number of times).

Dvd player/ recorder will only play dvd-r's or dvd-rw's not region 2 discs


If you bought this recorder/player in the United States, then it comes in the box only able to play region 1 dvds. Im not sure of your question, but if you are having trouble playing other region discs, well that is why. Very few devices sold in the United States will play other regions. I went to Sharps website and their info there said nothing about this unit being able to play any other regions than region 1.

If you google the model, some people talk of a code to enter to make it play other regions but I could not find any info pertaining to whether this is true or not!

Hope that gives you some help!

Can´t play European dvd´s in my Sony DVPFX810 player!


Hello Selmabjork:

Most DVD players have what u call region codes to play different types of dvd's. Look in your DVD menu settings and select the correct region code where u live. The US region code is 1. So this where I would start.
My question to you is does it play normal dvd's ok. Such as DVD's made in the United States, if so it's set right now for US region.
Also check your user maual for all region codes its usually there.

Happy Viewing....LT

How do i run a wrong region DVD. I have a Philips Hifi D 796 home theatre system.


Wrong region dvd. Look, all manufactures of electronics make the item for sale of a specific region. For example: A Canadian dvd will work on a United States dvd player, because it's basically the same region. But try playing a dvd shipped to Australia, United KIngdom, Japan, etc. Do you see where I'm trying to go at here? If you moved, or baught a pirated dvd (just saying), it may not work. Because different countries, product makers make them differently for THAT specific region. Check your dvd out, where you bought it from. If it was online, check where it came from.

Hope this helps.

Message,"This disc is not formatted to play in this region".


DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played. Discs without region coding are called all region or region 0 discs.
The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region (region 0 discs are not restricted). The purpose of this is to allow motion picture studios to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and, especially, price, according to the region. Many DVD players are or can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs.Region 1 Players/DVDs include: Canada, United States, US Territories, and Bermuda. See below:
Region code Area 0 Informal term meaning "worldwide". Region 0 is not an official setting; discs that bear the region 0 symbol either have no flag set or have region 1–6 flags set. 1 Canada, United States; U.S. territories; Bermuda 2 Western and Central Europe; Western Asia; Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland; United Kingdom, Turkey, French overseas territories 3 Southeast Asia; South Korea; Taiwan; Hong Kong 4 Australia; Oceania; Central and South America; Caribbean; Mexico 5 Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Africa, Central and South Asia, Mongolia, North Korea. 6 China, Hong Kong 7 Reserved for future use (found in use on protected screener copies of MPAA-related DVDs and "media copies" of pre-releases in Asia) 8 International venues such as aircraft, cruise ships, etc.[1] ALL Region ALL discs have all 8 flags set, allowing the disc to be played in any locale on any player.

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:
