DVD region code

To change the region code of DVD is High-risk operation, it only can be changed less than 5 time, and you are not to recommended to do that. If only for one or several DVD Discs, just remove the DVD region code via a DVD ripper. Of course, if you bought the DVD player from other region, you can change the region code of DVD player permanently.

dvd players because of copyright info can only be set to one region code and can only play dvds from that region. Some players are set at factory some allow user to reset region usually a limited no. of times.
home burnrd dvds usually don't carry that info therefore no issue. So you need to reset player for appropriate region

The symptoms are usually telling you that there is a lens problem. In some case a firmware problem can give the same.
If problem is firmware, the manufacturer will be aware, and there will be an update available.

The first thing to do would be using a cleaner DVD. Before using a cleaner disk, better calling Pioneer at the number listed on the owners manual. Sometimes the use of a cleaner disk can affect warranty.
Also ask Pioneer if a firmware upgrade for this unit is available. Better testing the firmware if possible.

The problem is quite common, you can read about similar problems here:My player does not read disks

If the DVD lens cleaner does not work, then all you could do is disassembling the unit and cleaning the lens with DVD cleaner solution , or isopropyl alcohol, and soft cotton QTips.
Do this at your risk. As said, there is always the chance that you touch and damage some other part if you do it wrong, and this operation will invalidate eventual warranty.
