Guys, it is working but with a little correction in the setup process. You have to follow all instructions mentioned above except this one - as you put all numbers "1389" don't press "0" key, but change the currently appeard region number on your screen by pressing arrow UP or DOWN keys to get "zero" on the screen. After this follow the above instr. to complete the setup.
Try this - hopefully it helps. Wait for the "wrong disk" or "no disk" message appears. Press Open/Close. Press set up on the remote. Enter "1389" in the menu then enter "0" for regionless in the region menu. Press "Enter" then "Setup" to exit.

I have the same machine. I am currently experiencing a similar problem. The machine reads cd's, vcd's, but it will not read dvd's. Commercially purchased dvd's. The problem is not a format problem, not a zone problem. The dvd's work in other machines, so it is not a dvd problem. If anyone has any ideas, please respond. Thank you.
Exactly the same problem myself. Try pressing open and then holding tight to a cotton bud, sweep inside the machine. The problem seems to be dust collecting. If it works then get a proper cleaning disc. My problem got so bad that the machine would spit out most discs as unable to read.
I have found several of these that have had that problem and the ones i repaired had the same problem the power had failed to the laser eye. it was a different fix for each but that was the basic answer you can take it apart if its not under warrenty and look at the power board look for burnt resistors they turn black, or darker brown spots on the board. one did have the motor that controlled the eye bad the eye would not move.
are they bootleg dvd's? if not try getting a lense cleaner because wrong disc means it's reading your dvd's as .mov files which only play on quicktime in a computer. if it reads your cleaner as wrong disk too then get yourself a refund cuz it has a motherboard malfunction.
