XD-DV series (EN/K,M,T,X,Y)
Every player of this model has a certain region code assigned to it based on the country where the player is used. When the player is used to play back DVD discs, it can only play the DVD discs carrying the region codes matching the region code of the player. The region code for this player is described on the rear panel of the player.
Region codes in the world
The DVD players are given a region code according to the country or area it is marketed, as shown in the following map.
Examples of TV screen display of each video format
When your TV is switchable between PAL/ NTSC
Try play a disc. If the picture is black and white or as shown on the right, stop playback and switch the screen display formats of this unit and the TV to another format. This will improve the played picture quality.
When your TV is compatible only with the PAL format
With certain discs, the playback picture may have black spaces above and below it (as shown on the right). This is because the disc has been recorded in the NTSC format. The screen may be somewhat hard to see but this is not malfunction.
When your TV is compatible only with the NTSC format
With certain discs, the playback picture may be cut above and below it (as shown on the right). This is because the disc has been recorded in the PAL or SECAM format. The screen may be somewhat hard to see but this is not malfunction.
