Question 'NO DISC' Message on DVDR1000

sponsored links

I have the Philips DVDR1000 (the early model) which, on several occasions, has refused to read Region 2 DVD discs. I am slightly confused (this is the third unit, since the original purchase) why I continue to have this problem!

I have the model '001' which I believe is designed for the European Market, i.e., 'over the water' and that the model '051' is considered to be for the UK market, however, Region 2 discs are supposed to be for the European region which I understand covers the European side of the water as well as the UK!

Philips told me on a previous email, that they only make an '051' model for use in the UK to play Region 2 discs. Lately, they tell me:

In regards to your query, you need to check that your DVD recorder has not been made to be Multi Regional by the retailer. If the unit has been adjusted this could be the reason for the problems that are occurring as Philips do not manufacture DVD players or Recorders for any other region other than region 2 for the UK. [End quote]

Does anyone have any knowledge of this problem or the answer to resolving it ?
