Hello,

Here are some steps that are llsited for a similar polaroid model so it may not be exact but it may help.

1. Make sure there's not a DVD in the machine.
2. Power the machine on.
3. Using the remote, press the setup button.
4. Use the right-arrow key to move to the "Preferences" menu.
5. Press these numeric keys on the remote in this exact order: 1379
6. The machine should display the current region. Use the up/down arrows to choose which region from 1 to 6 (or 0/regionless) you want.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Wrong regional disc


Hello mperona,

The reason you are receiving this message is due to the region settings on your dvd player. Dvd players use region settings to allow them to only play dvd's from certain parts of the world. Your dvd player's region settings do not match the region code of the dvd disc.

The only way is to make your dvd player multi region....you will need to post the make and model of your dvd player so I can search for a solution that will work.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

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. 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.
