Some DVDs won't play on Samsung HT-TZ325

I have a system at my home which is a Samsung HT-TZ325. It plays most DVDs, yet refuses to play others. I have checked the HDMI cable, even changing it, but they still wont play. Can you help with an answer?



Hi

The most likely explanation that springs to mind, is that you are trying to play discs that have a region code not supported by your player.

Many DVD discs are encoded with a region code, which stops them being played on certain players around the world. The idea behind region codes, is they allow film distributors to control a film release in different parts of the world.

In the UK, most players are Region 2, which means they will only be able to play region 2 discs. If you have some discs which are from the USA, then these will probably be region 1, which means they won't play on your player.

You can get region-free players, which will play discs form anywhere in the world, but most players bought in the UK will be region 2 only.

Some players can be unlocked to play discs from any region, but the way to do this will vary depending on the exact model that you have.

Hope that helps.
