Hi,

I am sorry to say that there is no way for you to get into the region selection menu once you have changed your region once . The only people who can fix/change this for you are the folks at Hitachi. It's a pity that you changed your region from all to 2...I always prefer all regions...

M,y DVD PlayerDP313, doesn't respond to Play.Instead ,says "wrong disc"{. Have put in fresh batteries. No success.


Who makes it?

Batteries and remotes have nothing to do with this. Have you looked at the manual?

"Wrong disc" usually implies a mismatch between the player and the Region Code for the disc.

I have just bought a Toshiba SD590EKB dvd player and it will not play certain discs, it keeps on saying wrong regional code. How can I solve this problem?


Check the back of the dvd player and it will have a small sticker with a small picture of a globe (or earth) and it will have a number being one through to six, this will determine what region discs you can play in you machine. Ill list the regions and their codes, i hope this helps.

Region 1 - The U.S., U.S. territories and Canada.

Region 2 - Europe*, Japan, Middle East, Egypt, South Africa, Greenland.

Region 3 - Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong .

Region 4 - Mexico, South America, Central America, Australia, New Zealand, Pacific. Islands, Caribbean

Region 5 - Russia (former USSR), Eastern Europe, India, most of Africa, North Korea, Mongolia

Region 6 - China

Good luck.

Bought it from usa cant get the dvd player to play dvds my daughter has it keeps saying wrong region .how do i fix this.


HELLO

With this unit being from America its probably LOCKED to Region 1 and this means you can only play discs from USA, Canada the US territories and Bermuda. Any other discs will simply not play.

You need what is known as a Region Hack which can usually be done from the remote control handset. However, there are machines out there which CANNOT be hacked via the remote.

I have found this hack, it may work for your machine or it may not!

Power on
Open disc tray
Press stop
(or there may be a button marked CLEAR)
Press 1 3 6 9 0 (the zero being for multi-region play back)
Close disc tray
Power off

Good luck with it (:-)
