    i have 2 different dvd players so i don't see how the solution could be the same for both and there was no information on menu/screen i should be in when i try to enter codes to change my dvd player from region 1 to region free so i can play dvd's from UK

    i am in the US - region 1 and dvd's are from UK - region 2. i need codes or "hacks" to make my dvd players - RCA BD20TF10 (TV/DVD Combo) and Sylvania DVC850C (DVD/VCR Combo) region free so i can play dvd's from UK. you can make a dvd player "region free" but you need to have the correct codes to reprogram and that's what i'm looking for

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.

Sylvania DVC850C after the February conversion


Simple answer is no.. not if it does not have a freeview tuner that goes for all those recorders out there that are not digital you could of course attach a freeview set top box to it but in my opinion with recorders being literally dirt cheap these days it's not worth the bother

New dvd movie will not play


I rented Rush Hour 3 from blockbuster along with Woodcock and both did not play on my Sylvania DVD player. I did take them and put them on my computer and their was a page that came up INTERACTUAL
ENHANCED FEATURES
This DVD is enhanced with interactive features designed exclusively for use on a computer.
PLAY DVD with enhanced features (that prompted a download)
or PLAY DVD without enhanced features and you can play the DVD movie on your small home computer screen.
I believe that the DVD producers have added the ENHANCED FEATURES to be used on a computer and in so doing they do not work at least not on the Sylvania DVD players.

Dvd/vcr combination


an easy first step is to check and make sure that you don't have any other rf interference. make sure that all radios, laptops, pcs, routers, etc.. .are not nearby. they can cause interference. A second idea requires knowing how you have it connected and what other types of equipment you have connected to the tv itself

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV


Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
