All you need to do is use the DVD Service Disc that you got when you bought your DVD player,, or  go to www.panasonic.com and e-mail them about getting the codes removed so you can play overseas DVD, they sent me a disk for FREE and guess what it worked,,,, it comes with the instructions, here is what it says,,,

INSERT DISK- and confirm "STOP" is displayed...

USING THE REMOTE press "SETUP"

Go to "DISPLAY" menu

Select "ON SCREEN MESSAGES" then press "ENTER" button

Press ">10" found on the bottom right coner

Press "6" button

Press "4" button

Press "3" button

Press "8" button

A PASSWORD WINDOW SHOULD APPEAR

TYPE IN "3192"

PRESS THE "ENTER" BUTTON TWICE

the disk will be read, when finished remove disk

I would like to make it region free because I have a lot of European Dvds, I came from there.


Hello, Marita -

I hope I am correct in thinking you are asking about a DVD player.

If you have a DVD player which is designed for a region other than Europe, Japan, the Middle East, Egypt, South Africa, Greenland (Region 2), it may or may not be able to be reconfigured to play Region 2 DVDs.

Read the information here:
https://www.wisebread.com/make-your-dvd-player-region-free-in-seconds

Depending upon where you reside, you may be able to find and purchase a DVD player which is "region free" and which will play DVDs created for all world regions. See the information here:

Best wishes.

My Presario CQ61 has changed DVD zones the maximum number of times allowed. It is now set to a zone that prohibits me playing anything from Australia.


Copied from somwhere else...

I came across a web site called DVDRhelp.com which tells how to reset the region codes for software DVD players.
http://www.dvdrhelp.com/play
" Q: How do I make my DVD drive region free (remove region codes/country codes/zone locks)?
A: Use DVD Region-Free to make your region locked DVD drive and your software player region free. You can also 'patch' your DVD drives firmware, you can also try a patched DVD drive firmware (it is freeware, but may be a bit tricky and 'dangerous').
http://www.dvdidle.com/dvd-region-free.htm
http://forum.firmware-flash.com/dl_all.php
Q: How do I make WinDVD,PowerDVD,Win2k region free?
A: Use DVD Region-Free to make your software player region free. Or use DVD Genie (freeware) to make your software DVD Player region free.
http://www.inmatrix.com/files/dvdgenie_download.html "
Side note: firmware is "miniature" software which runs an electronic device. Some electronic devices have updatable firmware that can be downloaded from the manufacturer's web site and re-programmed into the device. This is referred to as flashing the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) or EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory). A word of warning: if a firmware upgrade is interrupted due to a power outage or computer freezeup, the device may cease to function.

Error message when reading DVD


Try changing the region setting to region free.

1. Make sure there is no Disc in the tray.

2. Shut off the unit and unplug it from the AC outlet.

3. Press and Hold the "Play" and "Open/Close" keys,
simultaneously on the player and not the remote control.

4. While holding these keys, plug the AC cord back into the outlet. (TEST and CPU ver# will appear on the display)

5. Release the "Play" and "Open/Close" keys.

6. Press DVD Menu twice on the remote.

7. When the display reads s000 5858 use the up and down buttons to change the 000 to 02E.

8. Using the Left and Right arrow buttons, change the last four digits until they read 0000 for Region Free, 0101 for Region 1, 0202 for Region 2 or 0404 for Region 4.

9. Press Enter on the player.

10. Press Standby and wait 5 seconds.

11. Press Standby again. Your player is now set to the region you requested. If you find some titles do not play on the region 0 setting, you may have to hard select the appropriate region.

Good Luck. Let me know if it works

My DVD cannot read DVD films of the zone 2


you havent really provided enough information but I can tell you all dvd players cannot read all types of dvd disks and the most common zone i have found they cannot read is 2. but as i said they are others, depending on the name brand. you have to know that home burned dvd's are the most common to not work in zone 2.
