Check the owner's manual to see what region your dvd player is for. What ever that region is is the only region it will play.

Example: If you have a region 1 dvd player and a region 4 dvd, it will not play on that player. The regions must match. The dvd usually has the region it is for listed on the back of the dvd case near the bottom.

Also, Any dvd's that are Region 0 or are labelled "Region Free" will play on any player.

How do i get wrong region off my dvd player so it will play dvds


If you are in region 1 for DVD's you can't play any other region. You have to buy the right region DVD for the player. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

Message "wrong Region" appears in my Sony DVD -


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.

DVD's wont play - says wrong region but they are compatible


To change the Region code on your player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

Trying to play dvd but says wrong region soneynhv-dx350ab?


Hi, if its saying wrong region. then either your player or disk is incompatable. region 1 ntsc ( USA ) Region 2 ( UK ) et,c. check your players region coding is compatable for your country, and that you are also playing a dvd with the same region coding as the player. alternatively is to try and find a region free or multi-region solution.

Wrong region


check with another dvd you know the region.
check same dvd on another (not region 2) player and see if itsn't working.
find if you have to follow special instruction to activate the "all region"feature.
find on line instructions do remove the region lock.
confirm make /model/ sn where you bought it and I can help to find instruction.

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.

Coby 224 wrong disc


you can reset the settings through the menu, its under the advanced option in the menu. however, its not a regional error, if it was in the wrong region, it would say wrong region and not wrong disk, try putting the region back to 1 or 0 or 9, 1 is USA, 9 and 0 are all regions.
