First digital devices have manufacturers prescribed feature functionalities to capture an impression. Ascertain that the device player has the compatibility to decipher the disk media that has been inserted at drive locations. Second, alternately, ascertaining that the disk media is within compatibility with player is means to resolving the condition. For example, disks, DVD R, RW has prescribed players that capture an impression. Especially impressive is that blurray disks least is deciphered on alternate players but recently innovated blurray players.

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).

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.

Dvd player will not play dvd comes up with message "playback prohibited by area limitations"


I don't know where you are, so I will have to speak generally. DVDs made for the USA market will not play in Europe, because they have different area codings. This is about copyright owners controlling copyright. Many DVD players in Europe are actually hacked to get around this.

It isn't just Europe and the USA either, there are several areas that cannot share DVDs across borders.

It would seem that you have got a camera that is set to a different area than your DVD player. That is what is causing this error message. Sometimes you can change one or the other from a menu (you can do this a limited number of times with a DVD disk drive installed in a computer). If it is a stand alone DVD player, I would try to get it hacked to be "region free". Sometimes you can find information about this by searching the web. I can't advise further because you have not given make and model of either your camera or your DVD player, or your location, or where you bought the equipment.

My dvd player says playback prohibited by area limitations


Sounds like it's the wrong region disc. Try a disc that worked before and if it does than there is nothing wrong with your dvd player it is the disc you are trying to play that has the issue.

'PLAYBACK PROHIBITED DUE TO AREA LIMITATIONS'


Check area code at your unit and usualy its printed at back side. If your unit belongs to code 1, it will play only region code 1 dvds and so on other codes.
