Have a Sony SLV-D983P (DVD/Video Combo) and an RDR-HX720 DVD recorder and am trying to make them both region free. Was looking on the internet but for codes but cannot find any for these specific models?

Find the unlock code for your Sony DVD player model. The DVD Demystifiziert and Video Help websites both provide unlock codes for Sony players that can be unlocked and made region-free. To view the code for your DVD player, click on the model of your DVD player in the Sony hack list on the website.
Perform the tasks included in the unlock code. For most Sony models that can be unlocked, the unlock code is not as simple as pressing a few buttons. You may need to open the tray on the player or power the unit on and off multiple times as part of the hack.
Turn the unit off and then on again after you have entered your unlock code, even if the code doesn't include this step. Once you power the unit back on, it should be region-free and should be able to read any DVD that you insert in the tray.
NOTE: Not all Sony players can be unlocked to be region-free. According to the DVD Demystifiziert page, no unlock codes are available for Sony models DVP-NC85H, DVX-11A, SLV-D980P and SLV-D500P.
Keep in mind that unlocking a Sony DVD player almost always voids the unit's warranty.
it could be a region problem. most dvd players are locked on certain region areas..like America being Zone 1 and S.A being Zone 2. imported or diffirent format of dvd's usualy gives a disk error message. if you think it might be region try www.videohelp.com. they give hacks for region problems^^
