It'll be a wrong region dvd. DVD players have regions as do DVDs. As you said you got the dvd from usa i'm guessing you don't live there. USA is region 1 and your player will most probaly be a different region to this. You could try to hack your player from the following link to make it region free so you don't have this problem. http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks not all dvd players can be hacked though.

My Samsung smart tv & my dvd/bluray player recorder I bought at same time. Haven't had blurays til now & wont play at all. Rental ones did now I've bought my own & they don't play!Not tech minded.HELP


Each DVD player is assigned a code for the region in which it's sold. For example USA/Canada are Region 1 players. DVD players will refuse to play discs not coded for its specific region. In effect, this means that a DVD purchased in one country is normally unreadable on a DVD player bought in another region.

If your rental DVDs work in the player then there is nothing wrong with your DVD player. If you have purchased DVDs that do not work the problem is with the DVDs you have, not with the DVD player.

I have a GPX portable DVD player that is showing wrong region. It was playing these same disks before and now it will not?? Any help?????


Commercial DVD disks are "keyed" to a specific "region".
USA is in "Region 1", and Europe is in a different region.

Some DVD players allow you to "switch region", but only up to FIVE times, and then it "locks" into one region.

Start with reading the manual. In some cases, a code has to be entered (depending on the brand/type of the tv,...) to configure your remote. Mostly, there is a step-by-step guide in the manual.
Also, check the packaging/manual of the remote to see which brands the remote is compatible with.

some dvd players (outdated)..will not play these new dvd (recorded or pre-recorded dvd)...if you are recording dvd and wish to play on another dvd player (dvd player must be at least 2009)...same thing happen with my toshiba recorder...my jvc player works its (2008), but my sony dvd (2004) did not play any of the recorded dvds (only the store brought).....suggestion buy a not expensive dvd player (you just need it to play all that other features will push the price range up)
