Is there a way to change the region code on a Sony HCD-S300 Please?


Unfortunately, you have a DVD player that is "Region Specific" and cannot be changed. Your system has a region code printed on the back of the unit and will only play DVDs that are labeled with identical region codes. DVDs labeled "ALL" will also play in this unit. If you try to play any other DVD, the message " Playing this disc is prohibited by area limits." will appear on the TV screen. Depending on the DVD, no region code indication may be labeled even though playing is prohibited by area limits.

Bought a dvd from England.JVC dvd player will not play dvd.it is on stop and will not play.


American DVD players will not play European DVDs because they use different region codes, you can normally play them on computers, but DVD players are normally coded for only one region.

I live in Australia but i can not play some DVDs. Do I need and area code? what is the area code and how do I apply it to my samsung? Thanks Andrew


Some 'branded' DVD/Blue Ray players will not allow you to play DVD that are not 'coded' for the DVD player target country. As a rule, nothing to do with modern Television set.

If possible, you need to 'unlock' the player to be 'Zone free' ; just google your model with those key words ...

Might actually be easier to buy a cheap multi-zones/zone-free player ....

Hope it helps.

WILL MY DVD PLAY AREA 1 AND AREAV4 DVD'S?


Hi camonk2004,

It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.

Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind Regards,
H2H

There are sites with firmware that you burn to a disc to unlock the DVD player. Do a google search to find one.
