Hi Glen,

These DVD players will often allow you to change the region codes just by putting a different region DVD in and playing, however they only allow this to occur a certain number of times before locking on to one region. Then they cannot be changed to any other region. If this is the case with your own DVD player then unfortunately there is no way to change it.

It's a Jensen vx3012 car DVD player it has only played region 1 since I brought it new I've only played footy DVDs in it and they are region free ?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I'm in Australia
Car Electronics Technician: ElectronicsPete, Electronic Engineer replied 2 years ago

So it will not play region-free DVDs either?

Will it still play region 1 DVDs ok?

It will play region free DVDs like AFL football DVDs it won't play region 4 as I'm in Australia and DVDs here are region 4 I don't have any region 1 DVDs I was told any Jensen car DVD players can have their region changed ?
Car Electronics Technician: ElectronicsPete, Electronic Engineer replied 2 years ago

They can have their region set for whatever region you are in when you play the first few DVDs in it.

Once it is set for your region, there is no way around this except returning it to the factory.

This isn't costing me 60 od dollars for each email is it ?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
But if it's new in the box when I got it delivered and the first DVD I tried to play was region 4 and it didn't play it so I put in a region free football DVD so shouldn't it be region free then

Do you know what unit I'm talking about ?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Is this costing me each time I reply to your emails
Car Electronics Technician: ElectronicsPete, Electronic Engineer replied 2 years ago

No, there is only one charge for this question page.

I know the unit you are talking about - it is a recent model, and no-one has yet developed a hack to get around the region lock once it locks in place.

Where did you order it from?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Off the internet it was a birthday present
Car Electronics Technician: ElectronicsPete, Electronic Engineer replied 2 years ago

Ok, if it was imported then that may explain why it is not working as it should. It really depends what website it was bought from.

Yes, you can reply back here any time for no additional charge for as long as you need to (as long as you do not start a new question thread for a new problem).
