all dvd players are region free when you first buy them, they set the region themselves, after 5 dvd's have been played on them. So if you had a european dvd player and played 5 USA dvd's on it , it would lock to the USA region and you would be unable to play european dvd's on it. Exactly what a friend did many years ago when he bought a load of american dvd films from someone and played them on his brand spanking new dvd player :)

Does the player ask for a password?
If it does look in the manual or contact Philips on their website.

You need contact anyone from Philips Support using their HOTLINE since as per your description the TV is already defective and check whether it is still under warranty if not you'll need to pay for repair cost.

Try unplugging it from the mains for 10 mins and then plugging it back and switching it on.

Most of the time it\'s no the Blu-ray player, it\'s the crappy burned dvd you have. If you got it from out of the country then most likely the Blu-ray player just can\'t recognize the format or type of dvd the movie was burned onto. Best thing to try to see if it is the player or the dvd itself, is play the dvd in a laptop (not a mac because they don\'t play most things) but a Toshiba or a Samsung. The "region locked" error code is just the default displayed when you don\'t have properly formatted dvds.

works on the BDP 2700 -
turn on player without disc. push home button(looks like a house) on remote. enter 1389310 using remote. wait 10 sec then turn off at front of player. wait 10 sec then turn on at front of player.

I believe the 7200 is not able to be unlocked for region free play though

Some DVD players are proprietary. See if it will play in other devices. If it is a burned copy the player may not like that brand of DVD.

The DVD you're using is probably from elsewhere than the region you live in. It is almost certainly possible to temporarily change the region by using a trick which will not damage your machine in any way. Google "Philips DVP642 region hack" and there will be an answer.

The sound board is out in the dvd player. Try another source, such as cable, and/or a gaming system if the tv gets sound it is for sure the sound board on the dvd player. Always check to make sure the dvd player doesn't have a mute option.
