Samsung Blue Ray DVD Model P1400 would not play dvd's purchased in London because it could not read the region codes. How can the region codes be deactivated on the DVD so it can play them from anywhere.

    Thanks, accordianman. I was aware of that and have looked into finding a hack solution but am being cautious about it.

Region codes are set for the area that the unit is sold and is generally hardwired to prevent all discs from playing. There May be a "hack" online that will "rewire" the region instructions for your set, bu, let the buyer beware!...accordianman

I've ordered a blue ray disc from kalahari, but it won't play on my player. it says mismatch between disc and unit region code


Hi there,
DVD's are coded for regions of the world. Unfortunately you have purchased one from a different region. If you are in the US you want to buy from a US dealer or make certain that the dealer provides you DVD's for the US region.
Sorry - but nothing can make that work in your DVD player.
Hopefully Kalahari will return it.

Good luck!

Need to unlock the region code so that I can play Australian DVD's on UK machine


Go to videohelp.com and search on the model number - the sequence of remote control keys to press to change the region code is there. It worked well for me, so I could play US DVDs on my UK region machine.

Unit plays DVD but no longer Blu Rays


That is because of a dirty or defective lens. When lens is dirty, the unit may still operate on regular CDs and DVDs and not be reading BD.

Try first using a lens cleaner for Blue Ray: Maxell 190054 Blu-Ray Lens Cleaner

If that does not work, the unit may be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

How to safely clean a DVD lens?


Clean DVD lens, or replace player?


Clean CD or DVD ROM lens with a brush?


Cleaning your DVD drive


How to clean a DVD player


How do I clean my DVD player optical lens isoproponol alcohol

Being this a blue ray unit , I would suggest calling support instead of disassembling the unit by yourself.

Changing to multi region dvd


There are a couple sites I found that offer the codes for that player and the BD-P1000. I am not sure if I am allowed to post the links for those sites but the link to the site zimcloud posted is one of the places I saw it listed. You can google the model and region code and a list of sites come up.

Cheers

SAMSUNG HR733 DVD RECORDER WILL NOT PLAY ANY REGION DISCS AT ALL


On page 45 of the user manual it says this:

Both the HDD & DVD RECORDER and the discs are coded
by region. These regional codes must match in order for the
disc to play. If the codes do not match, the disc will not play.
The Region Number for this HDD & DVD RECORDER is
described on the rear panel of the HDD & DVD RECORDER

If you changed the region codes on your player it will not work. They should be set back to 1 or whatever your model says on the back of the unit.

If this unit was purchased outside the United States, it may not work in the United States.

Here is a copy of the manual if you need it:
