Yes you can change the region code on your Ps3.
1.) Go to BD / DVD Parental Control Region Code (don't ask me why its under parental control)
2.) Change the region code from United States to "Other". If it asks for specific check online to see what region the DVD's are from.

Invalid region When I put a disc in, I get this


This means that the region code on the disk (which determines where it may be played) does not match up with the region of your DVD drive.

Normally the region code can be changed, but only a limited number of times.

Try to make that if you buy a DVD online, it has the correct region code for your player

I want to play the dvds of animation like kungfu panda & madgascar etc.but the message that my ps3 displays is that region code does not match.I bought the ps3 and dvds in Delhi India & my location...


The DVD movie you are trying to play does not match the region code of your player which is your PS3. These movie discs might not be under the same region and you have to comly to the DVD region code settings to make it work. If it says region code does not match, it means that it is unsupported and not compatible with your PS3.

I bought a season of pokemon from ebay and when I put it into my ps3 it said PAL broadcast standard is not supported. my tv isnt old I got it two years ago.What do I do?


PAL: this is the region code all dvd's are encrypted with, it means depending on where you live its most likely you can only play your regions dvd's, it should say on the back what region your disk is, this site says what regions are where. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_codehope this helps, but there is nothing you can do if your player doesnt support the region.

Hi there, have a Samsung DVDV6800 purchased in July that wont play all region discs. Can you tell me how to put in the codes for multi zones?


1. Power on your player with no disc in the tray. Wait for message "No Disc" in the top left hand corner of your screen.
2. Press and hold the Repeat button on your remote control for approximately 5 seconds.
3. Enter the code below. (Note that you must know what Region your player is currently set to in order to know which code is appropriate.)
for Region 1 use 2, 9, 3, 3 and 4
for Region 2 use 3, 8, 7, 6 and 7
for Region 3 use 5, 6, 7, 3 and 2
for Region 4 use 7, 6, 8, 8 and 4
for Region 5 use 5, 3, 8, 1 and 4
for Region 6 use 2, 4, 4, 6 and 2
4. The message "No Disc" will now be replaced with the default region number of your player. For example, Australian and N.Z players will display a small "4".
5. Press "9" for multi-region.
6. Open tray and insert your title.
7. Close tray.

The player will continue to hold the changes you have made. If this does work for you the first time, keep repeating steps 2&3 until the players default region number appears. The amount of time holding the repeat button does seem critical.

Brough DVD's from america. Wrong region for Australia. I have a Samsung DVD P181/XSA player. How can I play my dvd's. Is there a way to break the region code on my DVD player?? Thanks Sylvia ...


1. Make sure that there is no disc in the tray and switch on the player.
2. Cold start the player, by holding down the PLAY and STOP buttons on the player.
3. You should see a set of language options. Release the PLAY and STOP buttons.
4. Select your language.
5. Press REPEAT (do not confuse this with the A-B button) then the following codes for the required region the player is already set to (region you bought the player in) :

Region 1 - 2, 9, 3, 3, 4
Region 2 - 3, 8, 7, 6, 7
Region 3 - 5, 6, 7, 3, 2
Region 4 - 7, 6, 8, 8, 4
Region 5 - 5, 3, 8, 1, 4
Region 6 - 2, 4, 4, 6, 2

6. A code will appear, indicating the region setting of your player.
7. Press 0 for region-free, or 1 for region 1, 2 for region 2, etc.
8. Press OPEN/CLOSE on the Player to open the disc tray. You may need to push the tray shut rather than use the player button, in order for the region not to be changed to 4 .
9. Press STANDBY (POWER) on the remote control to close the tray. Next time the player is turned on it will set to the region specified. If the player halts on the FBI Warnings, press Forward Search x2 or faster.
