Hi,I turned off my DVD without thinking as I was running out of the house instead of the main power button on our Creston remote box. It is part of a whole integrated tv/stereo system. Now I come back to the house to resume playing music again with DVDs and the DVD player will not respond. The button for Standby is lit but when I press on nothing happens and the usual routine I go through to get DVDs to work doesn't work anymore. It appears that the DPS 8.5 is stuck in standby mode. How do you get it out of standby mode? The receiver or whatever it is called is also Integra DTR 6.6. Can you help? Thanks. Stephanie
The Integra DPC-8.5 changer (as opposed to the DPS-8.3 single-play unit -- not sure which you have, as you mention DPS-8.5, a non-existent model) and most of the integra line of players, will sometimes be thrown into brainlock by out-of-step shutoffs. They will usually respond to the Integra/Onkyo instruction manual's directions to turn it off (you're already done that), then unplug the power cord from the back of the machine, wait a few seconds (make it 30 to be safe), then plug it back in and turn it on via the standby switch. The screen should display its welcome message, cycle through startup, and being working again. It is very much like rebooting a PC. In fact there is little difference.
If this doesn't work then something has gone wrong inside and probably has nothing to do with your shutdown method on the way out the door. These things do happen. Hopefully by now you've already figured this out. If not, give it a try. It usually works.

When I was with Samsung NZ, the following was how we multizoned our DVD (Region 4) players:
1. Turn on your player, but ensure no disc in machine - screen should show "No Disc"
2. Turn on your TV and select your DVD input (as if you were to watch your DVD).
Using your factory supplied remote, press the following buttons:
3. Press the Repeat (or Repeat A-B) button 4. Press the following button sequence: 7, 6, 8, 8, 4, 9 (you should see the number '9' appear on screen - this means 'Region Free'). 5. Press the Open/Close button (to open the tray) 6. Press the Open/Close button again (to close the tray) 7. Press Power OFF (to shut down your DVD player) 8. Press Power ON (to turn on your DVD player)
9. Insert Region 2 disc and wait (up to 1min) for firmware to respond and read your disc
If this fails, try procedure again, except for Step 4: change the last number (instead of 9) to '2'.
Let me know how you get on.

Hi, Do the following step to make your DVD player region free..
1.Turn machine on without disc inside
2.Press menu button
3.Enter region code (See below for list)
4.A highlighted 'region area number' will appear in the upper left corner (some players)
5.Press 9 to change the region number to multi-regional
6.Turn DVD off
(remove power from mains)
next time when u power on the DVD ,it will be region free.
On fornt of the player you have the buttons for opreation.You can use these buttons to operate your DVD player with out remote.
I have attached a image for your BD-P1600 player so your reference
1.DISC TRAY :Opens to accept a disc. 2.DISPLAY :Displays the playing status, time, etc. 3.Remote Control Sensor :Detects signals from the remote control. 4.OPEN/CLOSE BUTTON :Opens and closes the disc tray. 5.SEARCH/SKIP BUTTONS :Goes to the next title/chapter/track or goes back to the previous title/chapter/track. 6.STOP BUTTON :Stops disc playback. 7.PLAY/PAUSE BUTTON: Plays a disc or pauses playback. 8.POWER BUTTON :Turns the Blu-ray Disc Player on and off. 9.USB HOST:A USB memory flash stick can be connected here and used as storage when connected to BD-LIVE. It can also be used for firmware upgrades and MP3/JPEG playback.
The All for One Remote has a "Magic" button, instead of entering a code press the magic button and then press stand by, if the box does not turn on/off, then repeat the process (magic button and stand by) until it does. when it eventually goes off, store the code(i think you press ok).
My brother got this one as part of a deal and I hunted around and found that most if not all HT variants have the same region free hack:
1. Remove disc from tray. 2. Switch off player and unplug from mains. 3. Wait 30 seconds, then reconnect mains. 4. Turn on player with remote. Wait for player to finish loading and display 'no disc'. 5. Press enter on remote. (There will be no on-screen response.) 6. Press 8, 4, 2, 6, 9 on the remote. (There will be no on-screen response.) 7. Press enter on the remote. Player will automatically shut off. 8. Turn player on. 9. turn off. 10. Turn player off then on again. 11. Player is now region-free.
Did this on a Samsung HT-Z310 and other than I think maybe the tray not opening when it said it worked fine and the player is now region free.
Many thanks for your email and yes I have solved the problem. Unfortunately, the TV ariel that went in to the back of the freeview box was internally collecting water when it rained. The ariel runs down the roof and then down the outside of the house and some how water gets into and travels down the inside of the cable. The freeview box sat on top of the DVD player and the water ran through the vents in the freeview and dripped into the vents of the DVD player and that is why it no longer works.
I found a fix to my problem. This worked for me. 1) Power On. 2) Without a disc inside of the DVD player and using the remote control, press the setup button. 3) Press the right key on the remote 3 times and the preference page will appear. 4) Press 9653. 5) Use the up and down keys to select the Region. 6) Select 0 for all regions. 0 might look like a box. 7) Press the enter button. 8) Insert DVD. 9) If it works for you, then you're very welcome.
