Customer Question
Is the Pioneer DV-...

Is the Pioneer DV- 524 DVD player PAL compatible and multi regional capable? I am looking to purchase a DVD from Australia.

Technician's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Pioneer is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Where would I find that on the machine

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

November 1999

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

I have done no trouble shooting since I'm asking before ordering

I hope it works for the Pioneer DV 525 also because I typed in the wrong model number! I got the DVR, and I guess my ex got the owner's manual in the divorce because I can't locate it!
Electronics Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 11 months ago

For the DV-525 the region number of the player can be found on the rear panel.

You can download a copy of the manual from
