This works a treat for multi region playback on this cheap and cheerful (if not noisy) player

1. Press the Open button on your remote control to open the drive tray
2. Press the Setup button on your remote control
3. Press the Next button on your remote control
4. Press the Next button on your remote control
5. Press the Next button on your remote control
6. Press the Next button on your remote control
7. The currently selected region should be displayed on the onscreen display
8. Using the Left button on your remote control, change the region to 1 for region 1, 2 for region 2, and so on, or 255 for multi-region playback
9. Press the Setup button on your remote control

Shame there isnt a hack to quieten this thing down , on my second one now and this one too sounds like a Chinook helicopter taking off !! :eek:

Cant help you im afraid , after 2 of these units i went back to Tesco and got my money back however from what ive read yes they will play DVD-R`s. These players are cheap and there is a reason for this !!

Hello,

I've just bought this DVD player, and I'm pretty happy with it - only one problem I can't get it working on my all in one remote! The book of codes I've got doesn't cover Tesco as a brand. Does anyone out there know what the three digit code for it is?

The all in one I've got is the Technika 6 in 1 remote control. (I know, it's all tesco stuff - nothing better for the second TV!).

Thanks!

I’ve just bought the Tesco1030 cheapie DVD player and successfully changed it to region free. However, does anyone know how to remove or change the Tesco logo that appears when you switch the player on – its so tacky!

Hello ,

I have a Tesco 1030. However I only have one SCART on my television so am using a 1/3 SCART SPLITTER . My problem is that whenever I plug in the TESCO DVD to the SPLITTER the sound dissappears from my VHS player which is on the same splitter. This occurs with the DVD switched off. Once I pull the DVD plug out , then sound is restored .
Any ideas ?

Thanks,

Don.

I recently bought a DVD1030. The picture quality is fine and the multi-region hack worked well and didn't cause any unexpected problems.

The only thing I can't get it to do is play either MP3 CD discs or MP3 DVD+R discs. The user manual suggests it should be MP3 compatible. It does play normal CDs.

Any ideas out there ?...

the remote control should work as a Technika dvd-1030 as this is the model branded as tesco 1030

I see no reference to mp3 on the box it came in, the player or the user guide.
Where does it say mp3 compatible?

I successfully changed the region go multi-region, but my sound doesn't seem to work when I play the DVD. Did you get the answer to your problem?

your tv might not support NTSC. you could also try swapping the scart sockets at the back of your tv as some tv's only accept NTSC in scart1 for example. also check the setup settings in the player itself

I was able to do the multi-region hack for the 1030 and it worked great for weeks.

But, then yesterday....

I tried to play an mp3 CD, which didn't work (it had played mp3 before I did the hack), and now the player won't play ANYTHING and I've tried region 1 dvds, region 2 dvds, CDs, mp3 CDs, and still nothing. I keep getting the error "wrong disc".

Please please help!
