  1. I too have this DVD player. You forgot to mention one other “format” that handles. It plays PAL DVD’s as well. 🙂

    I tried your procedure for region free playing, and it works… Very nice, Thank You.

  2. We bought this same DVD player about a year ago and it’s held up quite well to our two year old ‘testing it out’ on numerous occasions. It does play all kinds of formats. Don’t you think 6 years IS actually a long time for it to work for you? Just a thought. I mean, it was only 40 bucks.

  3. Thank you so much for this post. I, too, bought this for $40 at Walmart 2 years ago. I had it set up to play all regions but a recent power outage reset the player to region 1 and I could not remember how to get my personal setting back.


  4. I went out looking for this philips dvd model # 396 2/37 at Wal-Mart and found out they no longer carry it. Where can i purchase this product?
