    Attempted solution #1 from Benimur never saw region code on TV what is unique for the ad1201 vice ad1200

  • jornk Sep 04, 2008

    I have tried both solutions as proposed with no success.I hope the experts realize that we aare working with a ad-1201 vice ad-1200.None of the suggested displays have appeared on the the screen after the suggested entries,Which makes me believe that apex used
    different firmware for the ad-1201.Need more help.

    To bad your solutions were unsuccessful but you tried hard.To take the box to a service center will cost me more than buying a multi region dvd player from amazon.

Hi,

An possible alternative for region free setting of an Apex AD-1200:

  • Open the Disc tray and leave it open
  • Next punch in 8 4 2 1 on the remote.
  • now you see Region code put it to "ALL REGIONS" by pressing "ENTER" not "9".
This was originally posted here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Appreciate the feedback.

    As far as I can gather, the 1201 has a slightly different firmware on the same chassis of an AD-1200. coolguy008 has posted a link here that details the two different versions of the same AD-1200. He was kind enough to post the first probable region free code, my posting was a probable alternative both from the same source here. Since the alternative did not address your concern, perhaps coolguy008's posted method might just do the trick.

    Cheers.

Hi,

Open tray
press 8 4 2 1 (you will see -'s appear top left of screen)
Menu appears for region and Macrovision
Use up/down keys to select Region/Macrovision
Use Enter to change region/Macrovision on/off
A PAL region 2 disk played fine when switched to region 9 (Really region 0 , ie region-free)
Have not yet tested Macrovision

You can't change the region unless some egg head has hacked the program codes to do it, other than that the factory doesn't release the information to reprogram the region. Sorry

Bought a dvd series of Ice Road Truckers series 2 off E-Bay. All my dvd players wont play. One says incorrect regional code. How can I get them to play.


you probably purchased a different region dvd. there is a code breaker for your dvd but it will stay on that code that you place in. ebay sells multiregional dvd players. and ebay also sells the codebreakers. look under multiregional dvd and search for the listing
