Samsung HT-C655W - Region Problem!

by thecosmichobo / July 31, 2010 1:16 PM PDT


I know how this sounds... but my DVD suddenly wont accept my DVDs due to Region code...

My 2 week old Samsung HT-C655W DVD home audio machine, which I readily admit to having hunted for a region-free-code for (without success), has suddenly started rejecting all of my R4 discs.

What happened - I paused "Finding Nemo" while my son went to the toilet. When he got back, I didn't notice him grab the remote, and try to get it going again on his own. Fianc

Called Samsung here in Oz.

1st guy (from overseas call centre I suspect) just said to do a firmware update. He didn't check to see if one existed... which it didn't. So I had to call back. This time got a local, who spent the time to walk me through a reset (press STOP til machine turns off, then re-enter your desired language etc etc etc).

Problem solved.

Thanks Aussie Samsung guy!

I have the same unit, did this turn the dvd player to a region free to play dvds from all regions.

No - it just reset it back to factory settings.

The guy actually made the comment to me that "you can change the region code via the remote control" - but as I really was primarily wanting to be able to USE my DVD again, I wasn't going to try ask for that! Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
