You have a scratch or marks on the disk. Try taking the disk out and cleaning it then trying again.

Or if this is a self burned dvd, then it is also possible that the video was not encoded to the disk properly. If this is the case all you need to do is burn another disk at a slower write speed.

Hi, I am seeking the region free code for a Samsung DVD-D530? Thanks!


I tried the above steps, but each time when restarting the DVD player, it said 'reset' and asked for the language to be selected again. Pressing the "Fast Forward Fast Rewind Fast Forward Up Down" sequence caused the player to lock up and require powering off at the wall.
I found on another web site that there are different initial sequences. Once I use the one for Region 2, it worked fine.

I found the instructions below on another web site, but it worked for me...
  • Make sure there is no disc in the player.
  • Turn on the player (you can use remote control or front panel, it doesn't matter)
  • Wait for "No Disc" message to appear on the TV screen.
  • Press the Repeat button on remote (plain, not A-B).
  • Press the correct sequence of buttons of remote according to the original region code of your player (it's on the sticker on the back panel of the player). FF = fast forward, FR = fast rewind.
    • Region 2 players: FF, FR, FF, UP, DOWN
    • Region 3 players: FF, PLAY, FR, UP, LEFT
    • Region 4 players: FR, PLAY, DOWN, DOWN, RIGHT
    • Region 5 players: FF, UP, DOWN, STOP, RIGHT
    • Region 6 players: LEFT, RIGHT, RIGHT, PLAY, LEFT
  • If you pressed the correct sequence, a small white number 0 will appear somewhere on the top right of the screen. The white number 0 of the same font and size as the "No Disc" message, so don't confuse with the red "not allowed" sign that would appear when you press a function that's not available.
  • Turn the player off and on again, then you can pop in a DVD of any region and watch immediately.
Good luck!

Our 2006 TV works well however the DVD is not working properly. Once loaded the DVD will start to play then freeze, or move in small, jumpy fragments. Sometimes the DVD will operate normally for an hour...


From your description you have at least two issues with the dvd player first it freezes, and second the eject system is a problem. The dvd assembly is on the way out and should be replaced, the cost to replace min $200.00 "parts and labor"

I have bought samsung dvd player h1080 and it seems that it is region 1 how can i make it region 2. thanks


Hello,

After searching the best known region hack databases I have found one process for your make and model. I can not assure you that it will work 100% but it's the only known process.

Turn on the Player with no disc on the tray. The tv screen and the dvd lcd will display "No Disk"

2. Press the "Repeat" key on the Samsung remote control

3. Press the keys: "5 7 5 3 8" on the remote. Number 2 appears on the screen for a short time.

4. Press "9". Number 9 is displayed on the screen.

5. Press the "Open/close" button in the remote. The tray will open. Leave it open for a few seconds.

6. Just press the "On/off" button in the remote.

7. You now have a multi-region dvd player!!

I hope this works for you, thank you for choosing Fixya!
