Why does it indicate 'wrong region'?


DVDs come imprinted with a region code for the geographical area they are sold in. DVD players sold in the same area(s) have the same region code. If you purchase DVDs made for a different region code, they will not play on your player. This is done to prevent piracy and copyright violators. Players can have their region codes changed, but then anything you have already will not play, and you are usually limited to three or four region changes before the player will not allow any more.

Here is a link to a Wikipedia article explaining Region Codes in more detail....

Is there a way to change the region code on a Sony HCD-S300 Please?


Unfortunately, you have a DVD player that is "Region Specific" and cannot be changed. Your system has a region code printed on the back of the unit and will only play DVDs that are labeled with identical region codes. DVDs labeled "ALL" will also play in this unit. If you try to play any other DVD, the message " Playing this disc is prohibited by area limits." will appear on the TV screen. Depending on the DVD, no region code indication may be labeled even though playing is prohibited by area limits.

My Sony Blu ray can't play normal DVDs in my region - Africa. How do I change the region coding just for DVDs?


It's not possible to change the region code in the Blu-ray Player.

BD media does have region codes. But, unlike current DVD players, the region codes for BD media use letters instead of numbers to indicate a particular zone or region where the discs can be played.

The BD region codes are as follows:
Region A: North America, South America, U.S. Territories, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia

Region B: Europe, Africa, Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.

Region C: Asia (except for Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia)

WILL MY DVD PLAY AREA 1 AND AREAV4 DVD'S?


Hi camonk2004,

It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.

Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind Regards,
H2H
