Dvd-p181 - Samsung Region-free

I have noticed this advice on numerous other sites, but I seem to be doing something wrong.
Each time I depress the PLAY & STOP buttons on the remote, I don't get the language selector screen.
Any other advice?

Try this hack as it seems to be another one available for this player and it doesn't include the play and stop buttons.

<DVD> ; press DVD button
<0><0><0><0><0> ; enter 5 times 0
<repeat> ; press repeat button (careful, not <repeat A-B>)
<5 digit code> ; see below, depends on region the player is currently set to
<0 for region free, 1-6 for other region> ; select new region
<open> ; open tray
<open> ; close tray
Now power off/on

5 digit code:
region 1 : 29334
region 2 : 37867
region 3 : 56732
region 4 : 76884
region 5 : 53814
region 6 : 24462

Note: reset player by powering down and simultaneously pressing <power> + <play> until display shows 'reset'.

Depends on what you want to record and how big the file is , you can use a 4.7 or a double layer DVD and either + or - are fine unless your machine is sign specific

DVD region codes are a digital-rights management technique designed to allow film distributors to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and price, according to the region.DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played.

The American DVD Copy Control Association in California requires that DVD-player manufacturers incorporate the regional-playback control (RPC) system - according to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, an Australian government agency.[1]

There are six different official regions and two informal variations.[citation needed] DVDs may use one code, a combination of codes (Multi-Region), most codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region; however, region-free DVD players are also commercially available.[2] In addition, many DVD players can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs.[3]

My dvd/stereo won't play dvd's unless grounded to emergency brake


There are a few types of override procedures for Kenwood.
Type 1
During the code request mode, while holding the DISP key depressed, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds (so that “…” disappears).
Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 2
Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on face of radio at the same time. The four dash lines ( . . . . ) should "disappear".

Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 3
Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030
Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset key (preset keys are the buttons on face of radio for storing you "favorite" radio stations). "C" should display.
Then using your remote, enter your code.


Enter your number from the remote control unit. Your code number is 5227 (KCAR)

* Press numeric key “5” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “2” ( 3 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “2” ( 1 time ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “7” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key

The security is canceled and the set enters the TUNER mode!
"TRACK UP BUTTON" for 3 seconds.. and youre done.

I have a region 2 samsung dvd player. All of a sudden the following message displays: '' Can not play disk. Wrong region code'' We have been playing the dvd for more than 1 year. What is the problem? Same...


What follows is mostly generic advice which applies to the vast majority of DVD players which I've tinkered with.

Your problem normally only happens if someone else has played a different region coded DVD on your machine. Normally you get seven chances to reset the region code before the machine locks itself permanently to one of them. before the changes are permanent the player will usually ask you if you want to change the region code when you try to play a disc from the wrong region.

Before doing anything else it's worth asking other members of your household if they have recently used the player, especially if you know anyone may have been using imported discs. If they've used up all of the region changing opportunities then hacking the machine might not work at all.

If you use a search engine you can search for DVD-P181 hack and these will guide you through the process to make your DVD player a multi-region machine, but there are three different hacks which I've seen for the same player so you may need to try them all.

Won't play Canadian dvds


It is illegal to change the region code. I will not accept liability, but if you enter the phrase, "change dvd region code philips" on the YouTube website, some jokesters have some good videos which will show you how to do it. Two things they do not tell you:
1) It is illegal
2) It will only work 3 times, and then your player will be locked into whatever region code you set it to

You would really need a Multizone DVD player to do what you want to do legally (Philips does not currently make any of these)

Setting the player to region free


Apologies everyone.......

The instructions for the DVD-P181 are actually correct as described in other posts but can be a bit confusing. Please allow me to clarify using my example;

With your DVD-P181 switched on, follow these instructions using your Remote Control;

1/ Press the <DVD> button
2/ Press <0><0><0><0><0> (this is 0, 5 times)
3/ Press <repeat> (careful not to press the <repeat A-B> button)
4/ Press <7><6><8><8><4> (ONLY if your player is currently region 4 - refer to the table below for other pre-set regions)
5/ The Region window should now appear on screen saying that your current region is Region 4 and asking what region you want to change it to.
6/ Press <0> for the new Region (0 is region-free)
7/ Press <Open/Close> button once (to open the tray)
8/ Press <Open/Close> button again (to close the tray
9/ Press <Power> button to turn the player off

Now, when you turn the player back on, you should be able to play DVD's from any region. Good luck everyone.

_______________________________________________

This table refers to Step 4. You need to choose the Region code which your machine is currently set to, to unlock the Region Menu which allows you to set the device to another region.

In my example, the DVD player was purchased in Australia is by default set to Region 4. The 5 digit number I needed was 76884.

5 digit code:
region 1 : 29334
region 2 : 37867
region 3 : 56732
region 4 : 76884
region 5 : 53814
region 6 : 24462
