Manufacturers of DVDs and DVD players install codes that only allow us to play DVDs that are manufactured for our region. (For example, the U.S. and Canada are region 1, while China is region 6.) To make your DVD player region-free, you'll need to find the unlock codes that will allow it to play DVDs from all over the world. Below are some steps to help make your DVD player region-free.
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. 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. Have your remote handy. You will need your remote to enter the input codes into your DVD player. 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. 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. 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. Test your imported DVD to see if it works, once you have entered your code into the DVD player.
Sounds like your remote code is different to what's in the unit's display (DVD 2). You can try to 'reset' the remote, by pressing (and holding) 2 and ENTER/OK buttons together for 5 - 10 seconds, then release. This should restore your remote function back to your unit. If it does not, replace the batteries with new ones, and try again.
The remote may require a 'reset' of its command mode (to match the unit) whenever the batteries are replaced.
I assume you can play DVD by pressing the PLAY button on the main unit.
# Turn On unit
# Press the Setup button on the remote
# Navigate to the Preferences page using the Right arrow key
# Press the Down arrow once to enter the Preference page
# Enter 1, 3, 8, 9, 3 and 1 on the remote
# You will now see the current region code displayed
# Use the Up/Down arrow keys to select the region required or 0 for all regions
# Press the Play or OK button on the remote
