4.- PRESS ENTER UNTIL SHOW "Region code: 9" (Region Free)


1-Turn on your DVD player.
2-Open the tray.
3-Press 9 five times, you will see a number (for me it was 6, you'll see it on the screen, where the DVD displays all messages, like a blue bar up top) then I pressed 9 a few more time until the number being displayed there turned to a 9, when it does then press enter, now it's region free.

Turn on power. Open lid. Enter 9735 with the remote and press 'enter', you can now choose between regions on the screen. Select the desired region unlock and press 'enter'. This works well!

Not all DVD players can be used in different regions, yes there is a code you can use to enable use in different regions depending on the unit. If you access the "setup" menu from your remote you may be able to select the region but I believe this player is only supports US NTSC TV standard if you bought it in the USA and JPG for photos.

probably you are trying to play a disc that is not zone free or you need a code for your player to make it zone free. you may be playing a zone 2 disc ( PAL) on a machine that only takes zone 1 (NTSC) or vica-versa.

Many DVD players are preset to one region and if you use a DVD destined for any other region, the player will refuse to play. Some players have the option to change this to universal mode. Check your player's manual if yours has this facility.

Yes. You can play VCD movies and and Audio CDs on most players.

Hello mperona,

The reason you are receiving this message is due to the region settings on your dvd player. Dvd players use region settings to allow them to only play dvd's from certain parts of the world. Your dvd player's region settings do not match the region code of the dvd disc.

The only way is to make your dvd player multi will need to post the make and model of your dvd player so I can search for a solution that will work.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

You have this backwards. Applicable codes would be in the Comcast remote control.

It's not the dvd; it's your player. I'm answering my own question. I did a search and found a code that needs to be set into my dvd player. So do a google search asking "wrong region" and the name of your dvd player. Someone is sure to have hacked through the problem and is more than willing to tell you how to fix it. Worked for me! Why does this even happen?

Use code search on your URC to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in the URC fails, try a different one.
