No.The device u have is it design for one region only like for NTSC or PAL only regions.If this device is not a multi regions design free device.This device u have only can play in one region only NTSC for US,Canada and Mexico only.PAL are regions for Europe and Eurpean Union,South America,Asia,Middle East,Africa only.
As long as the NTSC DVDs are not region coded, and your TV is multi-standard (able to receive NTSC as well as PAL signals via A/V inputs or similar connections), the player should play NTSC just fine through it
I assume this is a PHILIPS player? If so, most PHILIPS DVD players support NTSC playback on PAL TV.
You are correct, Australia is region 4 for DVD standard. The only restriction would be region codes.
Where did u bought this DVD player?US,Canada,and Mexico?The DVD disc. used NTSC region format.Asia,Europe,Africa,and the Middle East.The DVD disc. used PAL region format.They can't be mix or it will not play as u find out.If u move in and out to another region of the world.U must have a regions free DVD player to play either NTSC or PAL regions.
Short answer:I need the make and model #
Long answer:Some manufacturers, Philips for example, is fairly liberal of locking their DVD players to one region. It is very easy to unlock philips player, try googling "(brand) region free code" and there will more than likely be articles and sometimes instructions on how to unlock a particular model. Every DVD player is different so there is no one way of doing it. Sony, panasonic and other brands are stringent on their multi region capabilities. I'm not saying there are not ways of doing it, but sometimes it actually requires opening the dvd player and changing something inside, other times it can only be done if the factory before they ship out. Blu-ray has a region restriction also, but I will let someone else more familiar with that format explain that.
VHS players in the states is in NTSC format and in some countries they are in PAL format. The only way to get a PAL to play on an NTSC is if the VHS is capable of playing that format. You cannot do anything to make it play PAL. It's kind of like putting a DVD in a CD player and expecting it to work. It just doesn't work that way.
1. Hack for PAL p-scan using the supplied remote is "play", "159 222 023 00" , then press "play" for region 2 player
2. Enter RC6 command via Pronto
[For multi-region using a OneForAll (URC7560), to generate the RC6 code:
2.1. The remote should be set up to control the DVD (setup code 0539).
2.2. Press the DVD button.
2.3. Press the Magic button.
2.4. Press 085.]
2.5. The display should read '----'.
2.6. Enter the following with the normal Philips remote:
[On newer models, there appears to be 11 spaces in which to enter a code].
222 222 005 255
The player should now be able to output pal progressive scan + be region-free.
