I need to have my player set on region 2

Hi from Florida. I accessed your trouble site and found a response to my problem stating that I need to have my player set on region 2. Mine is region 1 and it won't play my recently purchased disc (British). Can you help me change the code? I am a novice at electronics to say the least, so simple language would be appreciated. Thanks if you can help, WLGoode, Jr., Gulfport,FL.

Hi there!! I recently purchased a Toshiba blu ray player, model bdx1100ky, not realising that it is not region free. I have many region 1 and 2 dvds and I now live in region 4. this blu ray player...

To make the Bluray section of the player region free one has to modify the internal hardware , for which some additional electronics has to be inserted in your machine ( approx: cost $ 100 ) by a professional who would charge you an additional fee. Liz my advice to you is for 100$ you can buy region A bluray players from the internet !!!. Now I don't know if in your part of the world they would deliver it. Or ask somebody to get it for you.

Hello my sharp dv-nc200 dvd player can only play regional code 4, but I have dvd's from europe, which are regional code 2, can I change this somwhere in the setup or menu or elsewhere thanks a lot for...

If it is set to only play region 4 discs, then that's what the player can do - you cannot change the region code and I don't believe there is a hack to unlock this particular model to make it region-free.

The only types of discs acceptable are those which match the region of the player or discs which are 0 (region-free). I have never found a menu option to change region settings in any player. It is not modifiable nor accessible. There may be a player on the market which is multi-region compatible and will play your region 2 DVDs perfectly; just not this one. It is a restriction, not a fault.

Do not fix what isn't broken.

Dvd player/ recorder will only play dvd-r's or dvd-rw's not region 2 discs

If you bought this recorder/player in the United States, then it comes in the box only able to play region 1 dvds. Im not sure of your question, but if you are having trouble playing other region discs, well that is why. Very few devices sold in the United States will play other regions. I went to Sharps website and their info there said nothing about this unit being able to play any other regions than region 1.

If you google the model, some people talk of a code to enter to make it play other regions but I could not find any info pertaining to whether this is true or not!

Hope that gives you some help!

Setting the player to region free

Apologies everyone.......

The instructions for the DVD-P181 are actually correct as described in other posts but can be a bit confusing. Please allow me to clarify using my example;

With your DVD-P181 switched on, follow these instructions using your Remote Control;

1/ Press the <DVD> button
2/ Press <0><0><0><0><0> (this is 0, 5 times)
3/ Press <repeat> (careful not to press the <repeat A-B> button)
4/ Press <7><6><8><8><4> (ONLY if your player is currently region 4 - refer to the table below for other pre-set regions)
5/ The Region window should now appear on screen saying that your current region is Region 4 and asking what region you want to change it to.
6/ Press <0> for the new Region (0 is region-free)
7/ Press <Open/Close> button once (to open the tray)
8/ Press <Open/Close> button again (to close the tray
9/ Press <Power> button to turn the player off

Now, when you turn the player back on, you should be able to play DVD's from any region. Good luck everyone.


This table refers to Step 4. You need to choose the Region code which your machine is currently set to, to unlock the Region Menu which allows you to set the device to another region.

In my example, the DVD player was purchased in Australia is by default set to Region 4. The 5 digit number I needed was 76884.

5 digit code:
region 1 : 29334
region 2 : 37867
region 3 : 56732
region 4 : 76884
region 5 : 53814
region 6 : 24462

Hi i need the hack code for my region 1 Samsung HTZ310 dvd player. Anyone can help please?

My brother got this one as part of a deal and I hunted around and found that most if not all HT variants have the same region free hack:

1. Remove disc from tray.
2. Switch off player and unplug from mains.
3. Wait 30 seconds, then reconnect mains.
4. Turn on player with remote. Wait for player to finish loading and display 'no disc'.
5. Press enter on remote. (There will be no on-screen response.)
6. Press 8, 4, 2, 6, 9 on the remote. (There will be no on-screen response.)
7. Press enter on the remote. Player will automatically shut off.
8. Turn player on.
9. turn off.
10. Turn player off then on again.
11. Player is now region-free.

Did this on a Samsung HT-Z310 and other than I think maybe the tray not opening when it said it worked fine and the player is now region free.

Can't access the preferences tab


Pls try a full master reset which if done correctly would revert the unit back to factory default:
1. Power on the unit;
2. open the front panel lid to have access to the controls;
3. simultaneously press and hold the channel up and down buttons;
4. wait till "BYE" is displayed;
5. wait till clock switches off;
6. power on again and re-configure.

You may need to restore "Region Free"
1. Power on the DVP 3005.
2. Bring up the System Menu.
3. Navigate to the Preferences page.
4. Press the following combination of keys on your remote in this order to bring up the secret menu showing the Region Code.
1 3 5 5 6 6.
5. Use the arrow keys on the remote control to change the Region. To make it region free, set the Region code to “0′ (zero).
6. Exit the System Menu.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

DVD code

I just figured mine out. You need to enter 138931 when you get to the preference menu. It will then show the region. Use the up/down button to select '0'. This will unlock the DVD. Make sure there is no disc in the player, or you cannot access the preference menu. Hope this helps
