You can download a region free DVD player program on your PC. Region Free is a term for describing DVDs and DVD players that do not have region-encoding.

You can try Leawo Blu-ray Player. This is an all-in-one player which can play multiple types of files including DVD, Blu-ray, physical-digital media, container formats, network protocol clients, audio and video of various formats.

See the procedure and fix it.God bless you

    • 1 Purchase or borrow an imported DVD. The only real reason to make your DVD player region-free is if you plan on watching imported DVDs.
    • 2 Locate your DVD player's brand name and model number. These can usually be found on the box the DVD player came in, or on a sticker close to the video inputs or on the bottom of the DVD player.
    • 3 Have your remote handy. You will need your remote to enter the input codes into your DVD player.
    • 4 Locate a Web site that can help you with the codes you need for your particular DVD player, since all DVD players have different codes. Try DVD Exploder or Video Help (see Resources below). Both have an extensive list of codes for almost every kind of DVD player manufactured.
    • 5 Enter your brand name and model number when prompted to do so on the Web site. If your particular model number is not available, try searching under the brand name. Sometimes you will be able to find a model number that is close to your DVD player's model number.
    • 6 Enter the codes into your DVD player with your remote. Be sure the DVD player's door is open-almost all codes require the door to be open.
    • 7 Test your imported DVD to see if it works, once you have entered your code into the DVD player.

Not sure what type of machine you are talking about. But most of them have a label underneath or behind with the player region.

Unfortunately without a firmware upgrade the only disks you can use are DVD-R or DVD-RW. The tricky part is that you can ONLY USE 2X speed. Per my conversation with Sylvania there is a firmware update that will allow you to use up to 8x disks, but they are charging $17.00 for it.

Try unplugging the unit for a few seconds, plug it back in and try it. It may also be dirty and need a service.

Hi i have moved to australia and need to change my samsung ht-bd2e to region free can you help pelase?


Hello

1. Ensure that there is no disk in the tray.

2. Switch the player off and then back on. This is necessary to clean-boot the firmware.

3. Wait until the main menu page appears and the player stops doing anything.

4. Press the eject button to open the tray. (The button is between the "Power" and "TV Power" buttons at the top of the controller.)

5. Press the eject button to close the tray.

6. Wait while the player searches for a disk.

7. As soon as the "No Disk" message appears at the top left corner do the following.

8. Press the REPEAT button - just above the TV channel selector at the bottom right of the controller.

9. Enter your former region code (Where you bought the player) from the list given below on the number pad.

10. The region code should appear at the top left corner of the screen.

11. Enter a "9" to make the player region free. (Enter a region code if you want to lock the player to another region for some obscure or perverse reason.)

12. Power down and power up again.

13. Play a foreign DVD to verify the change.

you must start entering the code just after the "No Disk" message is shown and before the message disappears. If you miss a number it won't work

Secondly, the REPEAT key is part of the code. All six keys must be entered smoothly as "REPEAT Region code". The entry gets timed out so you can't stop in the middle and restart. Don't bash away like crazy, just do it smoothly and briskly.

If you don't see the "Region number" the first time, don't worry. Just repeat the process. It may take about a dozen tries before you get it to work.

The following are the various region codes.

Region 1 (US, Canada) - 29334

Region 2 (Europe, Middle East, Japan) - 38767

Region 3 (South East Asia, Hong Kong) - 56732

Region 4 (South America, Oceania) - 76884

Region 5 (Russia, India) - 53814

Region 6 (China) - 24462

Solutions to incorrect disk error c105 & c104


Hello gjbrokke,

First make sure the disc is compatible with the dvd player (CD-R+ , or CD-R - )

Second make sure the region code of the dvd you burned is compatible with the dvd region settings on your dvd player.

One of those two are preventing the disc from playing in your sansui player.
