Cannot play region 1 dvd because the dvd rom drive was set to region 4

You need an Apex AD-500W DVD Player. If after you Google it you cannot figure it out, there are still a couple folks selling them on eBay. Good Luck!

Multi region dvd unlocker

This can only be done on some dvd players unfortunatly. They are locked to regions because of the video format types that vary from country to country.

How can I unlock a dvd to play dvds from all regions, I understand that by entering a code it can be done. The DVD player is Yamada dvd slim 5520

  • Download the firmware update from:
  • Extract the file to your hard drive and burn the 11121213.BIN to the root directory of a CD. Use Standard ISO9660 Format and finalize the CD. Don't use Joliet, multi-session or XA Format!
  • The CD title must be P80J0001. Don't copy both firmware versions on one CD. You have to use separate CDs.
  • Insert the ready CD into the DVD-Player and press Play when prompted.
  • When the CD drive opens take out the CD and wait about 1-2 minutes.
  • The DVD player will be reset automatically

    Invlaid region code

    Sounds like you are trying to play a DVD of a different region to that of the player.

    Worldwide region codes, sumarised:

    1 - US / Canada

    2 - Europe

    3 - Asia

    4 - Australia

    5 - Africa

    6 - China

    You can change the region code of the DVDR520H to any region or use region 0, which makes the unit multi-region to play DVDs from any region.

    1. Go into the main menu
    2. Highlight the exit button
    3. Type 2960

      This should give you access to a hidden menu form where you can change the region code.
