Cinavia Message Code 3

Sometimes when you are watching a DVD/Blu-ray disc through your Blu-ray player or PlayStation device, the movie will be muted suddenly and a message like this will pop out:

“Audio outputs temporarily muted. Do not adjust the playback volume. The content being played is protected by Cinavia™ and is not authorized for playback on this device. For more information, see Message Code 3.”

This is Cinvavia Message Code 3. It indicates that the audio track of the movie you are playing contains Cinavia and the movie is an unauthorized copy of professionally-produced content. Cinavia is an annoying problem to deal with, but you still need to fix it on your own.

In some cases, you can manually set your devices to make it bypass Cinavia protection on DVD or Blu-ray. For example, if you are using PS3, you can go to settings > date and time settings > set manually change the year. Then when you go back to play the movie, it will start from where you stopped and the sound will be re-enabled. But it is a temporary solution, and the Cinavia Code 3 will come again after a few minutes. Then you need to repeat the above steps. For a whole movie, you need to change the year for about 4 or 5 times.

For Netflix DVD that hits Cinavia Code 3, the official website advises you to get in touch with your device manufacturer to upgrade your firmware or go through Settings > Audio > Digital Output > re-encoded option to set your device. However, the first solution will not always work, and the second is limited to few selected devices only and you cannot find these options on every device that supports Netflix. So to some degree, they both depend on your good luck.

So is there a permanent way to fix Cinavia Message Code 3 completely? The answer is yes. DVDFab DVD/Blu-ray Cinavia Removal is the best tool to fix Cinavia on DVDs/Blu-rays and makes their copies playable on Cinavia-affected devices like PS3, PS4, Samsung devices and more.
