Unlock region code on Sony CD/DVD Player DVP-NS57P

Hello, Worldvet. I am trying to unlock the region code on a Sony CD/DVD Player DVP-NS57P.  I was in absolute amazement after  following the steps you shared for the Sony DVP-NS55P DVD Player in hopes that it would work for my model, but low and behold, it still only plays US and I need EU, as well.  Can you fix it?! :) Would be much obliged.  Many thanks!

I don't have a solution, but I know that the one about "press Display, Top Menu, Clear, Power" doesn't work.

Let me see what I can come up with. Our board here still doesn't notify we experts of all requests all the time, so I would have been back to you earlier.

    All Sony NS series DVD players are supposed to be region free. You can take your player to a Sony Authorized repair center and they can set it to 4 (EU) or universal region free.

    You can however, try this. Its a bit confusing in reading but I read many success efforts, just don't freak when the disc tray starts opening and closing, repeat steps 3 and 4 and it will stop.

    1 - Take any DVDs out of the player and turn it off.

    2 - In the remote control Press the following buttons, one by one,
    in the following order: Display, Top Menu, Clear, Power. A service menu
    should appear on screen.

    3 - Slect option 2 (Drive Manual Operation), then option 4 (Tray
    Aging Mode). The screen will now show two input lines, each with 5 digits
    (the first one is Input Count, and the second is Current Count).

    4 - Use the code 12450 in the first line, press enter, than use 00000 (five zeros) for the second line and press enter again.

    5 - Here is where the Disc-Loader start to open and close. Let it happen at will.

    6 - All you have to do here is to repeat steps 3 and 4 with the codes 00000 and 00000 for the first and second lines.

    You should be region free now.
    Let me know how this works out for you in addition to rating it fixed. I'd like to know if there were any nuances you encountered that could make this procedure more clear.

    Hi WorldVet, do you have any other suggestions to unlock a Sony DVD Player, Model DVP-SR201P. I cannot get it to see a service menu, I have tried all other postings for other Sony models but I am stumped.

  • Dawn Nov 14, 2012

    Also WorldVet, what do you mean at step 5, Disc Loader. Perhaps I need to input on the remote quickly, slowly, hold down longer, not sure

I want my URC-383 to control my Sony DVD Player. What do i do?

You can use code search on the remote to find something that can handle some or all functions of your Sony DVD player. If a search through all codes stored in the remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not store all possible codes.

Sony 5-disk carousel player will not open. Model DVP-NC685V.

Disc loading mechanism fault. Might be due to a broken loading belt, or broken gear wheel/s. You have to take the mechanism out from the device for repair, and it is somewhat skilled work. Contact any service technician to get this set repaired. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
