You’re enjoying a movie, and suddenly the audio gets muted and “error message code 3” pops-up. How do you remove the error?
Why am I getting the error?
Which movies are effected?
Which BluRay player doesn’t have Cinavia?
Sadly, almost all of them. Like I mentioned before, since 2012 it’s mandatory for all BluRay and DVD manufactures to include the copy protection in their hardware. Some claim you can update your firmware on your BluRay player to somehow remove the protection – But that’s not true. And it doesn’t stop there – It’s software players too. Popular apps on Windows and Mac have been forced to add the system.
Can I remove the error messages?
Yes. But you need to modify the movie you’re trying to play. The most common solution is The Movie Fix 2.0. It’s a $29 solution to remove any error message. While it’s a payed solution it’s widely known and has gotten great reviews.
Conclusion – How to avoid the protection.
- You can’t update your BluRay player to have it removed.
- Be cautious as to what you download or copy. Especially when it comes to big, movie blockbusters.
- There is no perfect solution. There are many websites who claim they can remove the watermark but it’s on a movie-to-movie basis. It might fix one movie, but the next week another title comes along that can’t be fixed.
- Right now, the best solution is The Movie Fix.
