When a DVD is inserted into the player it starts to load but then displays the message 'wrong regional disc'. However, we do have one DVD that does play (Cartoon Network). Have we adjusted the settings in some way? And how can we get it back?
I have a Coby DVD7107 with the same "Wrong Disk" problem. I emailed Coby a couple of days ago but now I know to not expect a response. I did find the cause of the problem, I first though it was the laser pickup, but when I defeated the door open switch I could see that when the unit did not load the DVD was only spinning at approximatly 1/3 or less of its normal speed. When the disk would spin at the high speed ( not very often) the DVD would load. So the problem seems to be either the driver motor that spins the dvd or the electronics that control the motor speed. Either way I guess we are all "screwed" when it comes to any assistance from Coby. I went to eBay to try and find the same model for parts or repair but all of them had the same problem listed - would not load - wrong disk. But we do have a nice monitor that you could hook up to an external DVD player (just make sure it isn't a Coby).
I have a coby TF DVD 5000 buyed a year at least.
suddenly it was out of service.
Three technicians said it a problem chip and anyone of them doesn´t have this piece. i tried to call COBY , but anybody answered me

It would more likely be the types of discs used. They are either of a region code not compatible with the player, contain foreign/unknown data, or they are unsupported formats. For example, if the player supports DVD-R playback, and you put a DVD-RW in, the player will generate 'wrong disc' message if the player cannot recognise the disc or the contents on it.
The disc formats/types that can be played should be outlined either on the unit itself or in the instruction manual (if you still have it). If the player shows that message even with genuine shop-bought DVDs then there is a defect within the unit, workshop attention may be required to fix it, but it could be costly.
'WRONG DISC' usually means the disc inserted is of a different region code to the player, or the wrong format (DVD-RW instead of DVD-R as exampled above). Try using different discs before going any further.
DVD region is an anti-piracy method to block DVDs from other countrys to be played on a region where that DVD isn't available for selling. You still can watch that DVD by changing the DVD Player region code from options but be aware that you have a limited number of changes, after changes reach 0 you cannot change DVD region code anymore and your DVD player will be stucked to a certain region that you selected.
Press 1 3 7 9 and the number of the region you want to use
between 0 and 6. Use 0 for region free. You may need to press these buttons slowly. You will see XXXX on the TV. When you press the
last number, it will display at the top left of the screen.
Now insert a disc (other than your own region) into the player and close it. It
should load and play. Other region discs should play as well. If you didn't do
it correctly it will display "Wrong Region".
When you turn off the DVD player it will keep the settings.
Many DVD players are preset to one region and if you use a DVD destined for any other region, the player will refuse to play. Some players have the option to change this to universal mode. Check your player's manual if yours has this facility.
Yes. You can play VCD movies and and Audio CDs on most players.
You may have had a brief power outage you did not know about. Then the DVD player needs to be unplugged from the wall and started up again or your lens may need to be cleaned
Because your dvd player is only made to play region 1 discs and vcd's are region 2. You need to buy a dvd player which will play all region discs or is rated region 0 which is the same.
