"Check the local code" is appearing on the screen


For DVDs, different local codes are assigned to each country due to distributor’s copyright.
So, unfortunately, this means that the DVD you are trying to watch does not have the correct location code, and is not watchable. This occurs when a DVD is bought from a different country.
