20 Most Recent Pioneer DV-400V DVD Player Questions & Answers


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

The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Google for the programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.

from direct experience, the problem is that the disk does not start spinning by itself - it will if you have the top off and give it a spin to start it ... I don't know what the ultimate solution is though.

Have a read of that it may help you get what you want out of the player - make sure you are prepared to brick the player though - its always just possible if unlikely

I'm going to look into that, but it may have an 8GB limit, or you may simply have too many entries...

Ok, here's a limitation, the device has to be FAT16 or FAT32 formatted, if it's NTFS format, it won't be able to read it.

You may have a corrupt JPEG or a JPEG that has something in the encoding it doesn't undrestand
You may have a corrupt MP3 file.

Step 1 - put the drive in your computer, open up my computer, and right click the drive and click properties. Check to see if it's anything other than fat32 format.

Dump the jpegs off the drive (make sure you have copies). This is easier if you right click the folder, and choose sort by type.

if it still is doing the same thing, start eliminating the MP3s themselves by dumping half of what's left on the drive at a time.

Eventually you will track the issue down!

I can help you with your Pioneer DV-400V DVD Player.

To switch your Pioneer DV-400V DVD player back to an interlaced video mode follow these steps:

  1. Switch everything off.
  2. Reconnect using the supplied video cable (standard RCA Red White & Yellow).
  3. Switch the player to standby.
  4. Press and hold the Standy/ON button while pressing the |<< button.
This resets your player to default video output, allowing you to reconfigure your HDMI settings to 1080i, and then reconnect your HDMI cable.

If you leave the player connected via HDMI while performing the reset procedure, then the HDMI resolution will be set to 480p.

I hope that helps.

Are you playing wide-screen movies on a 4x3=1.33:1 (standard=SD) TV? DVD output by default is SD. Even 16x9=1.78:1 (HD) movies with have top and bottom bars. Many "wide-screen" DVDs are squeezed horizontally so that you have to stretch them. Many theatrical releases are up to 2.7:1 or so. Side bars indicate you have the DVD output set for 4x3 and your TV is HD-like. There are usually controls for the screen format on HD TVs--no controls on SD TV. Hey, early movies were 1:1--take them side bars. More on aspect ratio (AR) in Wiki, I bet. With letterbox of SD you can get "pillar box" with black on all 4 side. Get a better source and/or choose a different AR. -Ken

Sounds like power supply issue.
