Unlock region sony sr170


When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China

Most DVD players allow one change. So if you buy a region 1 player and live in region 3 you can change the region to 3. But if you return to region 1 you can't switch back.
If you have a computer and a toaster to burn your DVD's, there are program m's that can rip a DVD to a folder on your computer and then recode the files to a DVD that has no region.
If you have lots of DVD's it would be wiser to rip the DVD to the PC, remove the region code and put the content on a media player.
In a few years you can't buy DVD's. Perhaps some blue ray DVD with 4K or 8K HD will exist for a while, but ???

I have a Phillips DVDR70 player. It only plays dvds bought in UK. I have some dvd's I got from USA and can't play them. Is there any way to overide the operating system which will allow the Us dvd's to...


You need to unlock the player before it will play discs from other regions. UK has region 2 discs while the US has region 1.

Search on Google for your DVD model and unlock code.
Dial in the code using your remote and you should then be able to play any region discs from around the world.

Can not play BBC Video Planet Earth


Unfortunately, Samsung does not currently have a firmware update available for that model, but you can check the Samsung Download Center periodically to see if they eventually have one (I'm a little skeptical, b/c this is an analog player).

There are several possibilities:
1) You said it was a "BBC" movie - if the movie was designed for play in the UK, and you live in the US, then the disc might not be a Region 1 disc. If this is the case, you will not be able to play that particular disc in the player. To be sure, check the back of the DVD - it should have a globe that either says "ALL" or is numbered 1 through 6. Region 1 is United States.

2) Is this the only disc that is having the problem? If so, what type of disc is it? If it is a burned disc, try finalizing the disc. If the disc type is variable, then it won't work in that player.

3) Are there any scratches on the disc? If so, there is a product that is alternately called Disc Skip Fixer or Disk Scratch Fixer. They are easy to find in a video game shop, although many stores will have them. Very nifty.

Good luck!
