Why ask me my DVD Playback prohibited by area limitations ??? Pls help me now I wane watch movie thanks


Most DVD players are region-locked, meaning they will only play disks encoded in the location they are from, or disks without region-specific encoding. For example, if I bought a DVD player in Europe and tried to play a disc from the United States, it would not play. Unfortunately, in order to get past the "area limitations" you will either have to buy a DVD encoded in the same format as your DVD player, or set the player to a different region code (which often will lock the player after a certain number of times).

Hi:
Check the region code in your menu, region codes are for different country codes embedded in the system hardware for playing different countries DVD's.

My dvd player says playback prohibited by area limitations


Sounds like it's the wrong region disc. Try a disc that worked before and if it does than there is nothing wrong with your dvd player it is the disc you are trying to play that has the issue.

Pinnacle DVD's won't play in DVD players


The region code of your stand alone player is different from the region code on the disk. To resolve this Pinnacle should have an info tool that will allow you to check the region code. If not Nero has this tool available with thier software. You should be able to download it @www.download.com. Also most newer DVD players only read specific data types. For instance, you cant use DVD-RW in a player that only reads DVD-R. So make sure you are using disks that are compatible with your DVD player.

When I inserted a disc on my home Sony DVD player my screen said" Playback prohibited due to area restrictions". It does play, however, on my office computer DVD player. Thanks, Natalie


DVDs are encoded to a particular region and will only play on dvd players that are encoded to accept that region. Usually a computer dvd reader is region free meaning that it can play DVDs from any region without a problem. For example the USA is region 1 and Austrailia is region 5. A disc made for Australia (region 5) will not play in a standard USA player (region 1). see this link on Wikipedia for more information HERE . The good news is that sometimes you can set up your DVD player to accept discs from any region. If you are interested let me know the exact model of your DVD player and I will look it up. Please rate me well if this has helped.

My player doent accept dvd disc from canada


Your player doesnt play a dvd disc in canada this could be because of region limitations and your remote control has nothing to do with this problem try replacing with new pair of batteries and try again.

Thankyou

Sony dvd player Model DVPNS78H


Sounds like the TV you are using does not support NTSC, the US TV standard. Try connecting the DVD player to some other TVs - something not more than a few years old would be a good bet, and a large screen plasma/LCD ideal as most of these are "multi-system" and handle PAL and NTSC automatically.
If the problem was the region coding you would be getting a message on the screen, something like "Cannot play due to area limitations".
