Region Codes don't work that way. There is no "code" to unlock a DVD Player. The codes are burned onto the DVD. The DVD Player has an electronic circuit that only accepts DVD's from a certain region.

If you want to play DVD's that are from different countries, having different region codes on them, then you need to get a region free DVD player. Do a search on Google for "region free DVD player" and you should have quite a few choices come up. I ran into this problem a couple of years ago when I bought some DVD's from England. I had to buy a region free DVD player to watch them. There was no way to make my region #1 (US) DVD player work for viewing them.

    The only solution is to purchase a region free player.

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

How do I bring the menu up on a zenith VCR combo without the remote


Without a remote control you can't. To select a suitable replacement remote control, you should be aware about the set up codes for your device brand. To know more about it, visit the sites linked here. http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/
http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Being there is no menu button at the front panel of your TV, without a remote control you can't select it's inputs. Universal remote controls are available by some online shopping centers too. Visit some of them.
Good luck

Veon tv manual


The eject button on the remote appears as an upward-pointing arrow with an underline - see below image. The eject button on the TV has a similar symbol.

However, I suspect that in your case, you might not be having a Remote.

This link says that your TV doesn't come with a Remote and DVD cannot be ejected without the remote :

I can't get my Comcast remote control to sync up with this sylvania 32in HD tv. I tried every code in the Comcast DVR manual under sylvania tv's and nothing, I would love a fix to this problem.


the tv is likely to be generic in nature i.e. parts used by many manufacturers. if you knew what tv builder actually designed it you could find the code. does the remote have a search feature if so use it, it should find something that operates most tv functions eventually
