SOURCE: how do I unlock region


The player is normally multiregion.

If player is locked showing the following and a region code ending with 61, then the player encountered a problem. The firmware must be re-flashed. Firmware for this unit is not available. You can only put a specific region code, and that does not always work.You will need to contact Pioneer or to return the unit to the seller to get it restored.
Here what you get if you are in this situation:

(Player's Region Setting)
: Region
: Region
: Region
: Region
: Region
: Region
Pick out any one of these!

That above link will download a zip file. You will need to extract that zip file. When you extract it, you will see a file named YKD9615B.BIN. You need to burn that YKD9615B.BIN file to a CD. After you do that, you need to do the following:
1) Turn the unit on and open the CD/DVD tray. 2) Put the CD with the YKD9615B.BIN file on it in the tray, and close it, and then push the play button. 3) After a while, the tray will open. Take the disc out, and leave the tray open until the update finishes. 4) After the update finishes, hold the ENTER button on the remote down, until the tray closes.
Once you do all that, the player will be able to play DVD's from any region.
Or try the below?
1) Turn on with no disc in. 2) On the remote control, press SETUP. 3) Select GENERAL (check that the SETUP is on "BASIC"). 4) Press DISPLAY. 5) Press CONDITION. 6) Choose region code and quit SETUP.

SOURCE: Hi! I have a pioneer dv-c503

On the bottom of the remote there should be buttons that have the numbers 1-5. These numbers cycle through the discs.

See this link for a picture of what your remote should look like. Look at the bottom for the area I mentioned.

SOURCE: I have a Pioneer DV-300

This trouble is cause by a weak lens or faulty lens. Weak lens due to dust or dirt that gets into the optical lens try to use a cotton buds to wipe it but be very gentle and be sure not to touch the optical lens. Faulty lens, is that the lens must be adjust, the potentiometer is commonly located below the optical lens and must be adjust clockwise, wrong adjustment can cause the lens to be damage if you are not familiar with this I suggest that you should contact a technician to do it for you and save you from stress, good day and best regards.
