The DVD you're using is probably from elsewhere than the region you live in. It is almost certainly possible to temporarily change the region by using a trick which will not damage your machine in any way. Google "Philips DVP642 region hack" and there will be an answer.

Hi i have bought a dvd and comes up saying wrong region how can i fix this


DVD players usually are locked to a Region code and cannot play DVDs from other regions unless the DVD player has its firmware changed to Region Free.
To change your DVD player to Region Free, please check out these WEB sites :-
Unlock DVD Players - Region Free Code www.dvdexploder.com/

Region problem


HELLO!

TRY THIS!

Turn on the player
Make sure disc tray is Open.
Press 9 9 9 9 on the remote, do it slowly.
Press what region you then require.
Press 0 (zero) for multi-region/region free playback.

When you are trying to play back a disc other than the region the machine is set up for, you will get a Wrong Region message.

ENJOY! (:-)

Philips DCP750/37 shows "wrong region"


Australian players are designed only to play Region 4 discs. United States discs are Region 1. It is illegal to change the Region code on a DVD player, so I can't tell you how to do it (ironically, it is the most frequently asked question about dvd players on Fixya.com - global world), but there are videos on YouTube that will show you how to do it - I would just enter "philips region code dvd" as your seacrh term. You won't find that exact model, but one of the codes in the video should work. Note that you will only be able to change the region code three times on a Philips - after that you will be locked out. So change it to Region 1 once, and never change it again.

WRONG Region error . Philips DVD65K


Each DVD player is designed only to read discs froma certian region of the globe, and they are labelled 1 through 6 (or ALL). Australian players are designed only to play Region 4 discs. United States discs are Region 1. It is illegal to change the Region code on a DVD player, so I can't tell you how to do it (ironically, it is the most frequently asked question about dvd players on Fixya.com - global world), but there are videos on YouTube that will show you how to do it - I would just enter "philips region code dvd" as your seacrh term.

- Press the following sequence in the remote control: 135566
- A menu indicating "Region Code" will appear.

Philips 7" DVD portable player


The PET702 will be a region 5 machine, whereas the UK DVDs are region 2.

DVD players from a particular region are designed to play only DVDs from the same region, due to copyright and distribution rights in each country or region.

However the PET702 can have the region protection removed by making it multi-region:

Switch on the PET702 and Open the tray.

Press SETUP button on the remote control, which will bring up the menu.

Highlight "PREFERENCES" and press OK.

Press [2], [5], [2], [3], [1], [5], [LEFT], [DOWN]

The screen will show: "Region Code: 2"
Press [1-6] to manually set the region OR [0] for multi-region.
coolsmiley.gif
Press [SETUP] to exit winksmiley.gif

You will now be able to play DVDs from anywhere in the world.

This is particularly useful, because region 1 DVDs from the US often come out when the movies are still in the cinemas over here. Region 1 DVDs can be bought perfectly legally by mail order or from the internet.
