Your instruction manual for the Sony system will tell you what region DVDs it will play.  Also the back of the receiver unit will have a number that says what region it will play.  Look on the back of the DVD cases and they will have a region number.  Your player needs to match these numbers in order to play, unless the DVD is region 0, which means it can play on any DVD player. You can buy region free players on e-bay, which means the IT folks have tinkered around inside the DVD players to turn off the region coding.

How do I make my tv/dvd combo play any region?


Short answer: I need the make and model # Long answer: Some manufacturers, Philips for example, is fairly liberal of locking their DVD players to one region. It is very easy to unlock philips player, try googling "(brand) region free code" and there will more than likely be articles and sometimes instructions on how to unlock a particular model. Every DVD player is different so there is no one way of doing it. Sony, panasonic and other brands are stringent on their multi region capabilities. I'm not saying there are not ways of doing it, but sometimes it actually requires opening the dvd player and changing something inside, other times it can only be done if the factory before they ship out. Blu-ray has a region restriction also, but I will let someone else more familiar with that format explain that. VHS players in the states is in NTSC format and in some countries they are in PAL format. The only way to get a PAL to play on an NTSC is if the VHS is capable of playing that format. You cannot do anything to make it play PAL. It's kind of like putting a DVD in a CD player and expecting it to work. It just doesn't work that way.
