How to unlock DVD player

Hi, bought dvd ntsc format from US but can't play at our player. Are you able to assist ? Player type - Philips HTS3011/98


your dvd has regional code..only play dvd from where your purchase it.
you can do some hack.
try this

To convert this player for multi-region playback

This hack should work on all Philips DVD players with any firmware version, and other similar models by manufacturers such as Grundig, Marantz and Yamaha

Please note that if you experience problems with this hack you can obtain firmware version 7.03 and later by visiting the PhilipsSyndicate to obtain files that you can burn to a CD-R and flash your unit to the new version.
1a.

The following uses the machines own remote control:

We have heard reports that hacking some players using the units own remote control incurs a 25 change limit after which it will lock the machine in the last set region

We have heard other reports that hacking some players such as the DVDR-880 using the units own remote control can result in an inoperable unit, we recommend you use the OneForAll remote only and consult our Region Hacks forum for more information

  • Press the Play button on the player
    NB: You may need to press this button on the remote control instead
  • Press the 1 button on the remote control
  • Press the 5 button on the remote control
  • Press the 9 button on the remote control

Although the above may appear to work on many units, showing the correct display as indicated in Step 2, the hack may still not work. In which case you WILL need to use Step 1b instead! 1b.

If the above does not work, you will have to send the infra-red code RC6 (aka Codeset 4, Key 235 in nerd-speak) to your player with a OneForAll remote such as the OneForAll 6 (or URC7560) or OneForAll 4 (or URC7740) or OneForAll 4 Digital with the following instructions:

  • Configure your remote using the setup code 0 5 3 9
  • Press the Magic button
  • Enter the code 0 8 5, or if your unit requires a five digit code, enter 0 0 0 8 5
If you own a Palm Pilot, you may also use Pacific Neo-Tek's OmniRemote software to generate the RC6 code using a downloadable .pdb file.
  • Download the .pdb file into your Palm Pilot
  • Press the OmniRemote key marked as 955 Multizone
If you do not own either of the above units, it is possible to construct a cheap DIY solution by following instructions at the following website.

NB: Sending these codes to some players, such as the Philips DVDR-980, requires you to select a DVD player remote on the unit as the default IR device, as opposed to the DVD recorder remote it is factory set to. Please consult your player documentation to find out how to do this.
2. The onscreen display should show 11 spaces like this: '-----------'

NB: The actual display may differ slightly depending on the model of your player, may be shown on the unit itself, or may even not be visible on some models at all.
3. Using the number keys on your DVD player's remote control, enter the code 222 222 005 255. Note that this is 12 digits and the last digit will not show on the on-screen display.

NB: For players such as the Philips DVDR-980, DVDR-985 and DVDR-1000 units, you may need to use the code 121 212 005 255 instead. For players such as the Philips DVDR-880 you may need to use the code 121 212 005 00x instead, where x is the desired region, however this also works on other units including the DVDR-985 for setting a specific region. 4. Press the Play button on your DVD player's remote control 5. The onscreen display should now show the words No Disc 6. Power off your DVD player, wait 10 seconds and then power back on

Philips DVDR3570


I had this problem, it was solved by reformatting the hard-drive.

NOTE: if you do this, all settings and all that is saved on the harddrive is lost. But seeing that you can't start it anyway, that is acceptable, right? :)

Anyway, here's how you do it, according to Philips support:

  1. Pull out the power cord from the socket.
  2. Press and hold PREV and STOP (i.e. left and down) on the front panel.
  3. Plug the power cord into the socket again.
  4. Wait until the front panel says "FMT KEY" to let go of the buttons. Wait for it to finish formatting, upon which you will get "-- --" on the panel.
Restart the box and you should now end up at a screen asking you to set the language for the box, as if being started for the first time ever.

Also of note: if you want to restore the firmware to factory settings, Philips support told me to pull the cord, press and hold the STANDBY button, and plug it back in again. For the looping problem though, I didn't need that.

Philips HDRW720/17 won't turn on


I have a DVDR725H, which is the same as a HDRW720 but has a 160GB hard disk.

This error code (FAIL 0900 05) is displayed when the DVD drive has been completely removed/disconnected or is not responding.

Note that the DVD drive (VAD8041) is apparently known to have its DVD motor driver chip (SA56202TW) getting destroyed due to overheating. There is a repair kit available (about 10-15 EUR) that comes with a zener diode and two capacitors (order number 996500029182).

Note that it might be easier to get some used philips DVD+HD product that has the same DVD drive, e.g. the DVDR610 or DVDR615 and use that as a replacement.
