Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Philips BDP3200 that is set for Region B for Bluray discs. So how do I set it to read Region A Bluray discs?

I have tried every code that is on the web. How do I get the ability to play may Region A bluray discs on a Region B player? I know there has to be some kind of code to change it to read either A Region discs or all regions. Please get back to me with some kind of good news.

Did this to my philips BDP3200 blu-ray player and it plays region 1 dvd's, waiting on region 1 blu-ray to come to test blu-ray.
It still plays region 2 blu-rays after doing this.

Do this to change to it to region 0 so it can play any region.

1.Power on with no disc in tray
2.Press HOME
3.Enter 1389310

To check the current region

1.Power on with no disc inside
2.Press HOME
3.Enter 8520

    Region 1 blu-ray arrived and worked no problem, so you can use this to make your player region free for both dvd and blu-ray. So your be able to play dvds and blu-rays from anywhere.

    What bluray did you test it on? Some, though marked Region A, may be region free.

    Does this also works for a philips BDP2900/F7 blu ray player?

    Update: Can't change the Blu-ray region on it, only the DVD region.

    I don't know if it will work with BDP2900/F7.

    I don't have a BDP2900/F7 to try this on. 1.- Turn On Philips BDP2900 2.- Press the Home button on the remote. 3.- Press 1389310 on the remote. 4.- Press the power off on the front of the player. 5.- Power on using the front of the player. DVD will be region free but Blu-ray won't be changed. Since I can't test it, use at own risk.

Hi

Most DVD Players these days are multi regional. The only variation to this are ones used soley for USA Market. Usually, in the insyruction manual it will tell you if your machine is multi rehion and if its default settin g is for one region, it will tell you if it can be reset.

Get back to me if you need any further help

I am from New Zealand . I recently played a DVD disc from the U.S. which is region 1. I had to change the region setting on the bluray drive to play it. I tried to play a region 4 disc on it, and after...


Ask the people you purchased the bluray drive to give you instruction on how to reset (usually is about 5 times and then it gets stuck in the last region used, the Blu-ray region is set in the playback software, not the drive.). You may also want to try re-install the software, which resets it. Good luck.

Cannot read dvd from region 3


Well DVD's from regon 3 are from these parts of the world:
CAMBODIA
HONG KONG
INDONESIA
KOREA
MALAYSIA
PHILIPPINES
SINGAPORE
TAIWAN
THAILAND
VIET NAM
And a few others in that area

Region 1 is what we use for DVD's in the USA

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
DVD region code
"Region 1–8" redirects here. For the ITU regions, see International Telecommunication Union region.

DVD RegionsDVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played. Discs without region coding are called all region or region 0 discs.
The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region (region 0 discs are not restricted). The purpose of this is to allow motion picture studios to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and, especially, price, according to the region. Many DVD players are or can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

I looked on a few sites for region codes for your player but they all came up with same answer as this one http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks/magnavox-mdv453/3134
there doesnt seem to be any code available for your model to set it to region-0 (region free)
