Hi,

I was made to understand that there are several versions of this model. Pls try:

  • Turn on your DVD player - with no disc inside;
  • Press pause followed by 3 1 4 1 5 9;
  • screen will display current region
  • Press 0
  • enter
or
  • Press On
  • "No disc" will appear
  • Eject Tray
  • Press '0' more than five times.
  • Press Pause
  • Press Off
or
  • Press "pause"
  • Press "1 4 7 2"
  • edit the 5th number group in the code
  • the first number is the region code
  • example; if the number is "12" then the region is set to 1
  • another example, if the number is "42" then the region is set to 4
  • so if you want all regions set it to "02"
  • when finished press "pause" again to exit from the menu
  • power off the unit and turn back on again.
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.

Hi,

follow instructions published by other experts and set it to region 0.

Region 0, means all regions accepted, will allow the dvd to read all regions.

Reward the expert that published the working procedure among the ones listed, by voting the solution.

Thanks

I have an LG BH7540TW 3D Blu-Ray / DVD Home Theatre system that only plays region 4. What are the unlock codes to play region 1 and how do I do it??


You cannot change the region on the player. If you want to play a region 1 disc, you'll have to use a computer and hook it up to your TV (you can change the region on optical drives a limited amount of times on computers), or acquire a region 1 player.

If you're savvy enough, you could rip (using a computer) the disk into a compressed format the LG system can read (MKV, MP4, etc.) and play it off a USB stick.

I have a Samsung HT BD2 region 4, I go many region 1, they wont play, how can I make it play?


To unlock the DVD code its defends upon what region you belongs or from were you bought the DVD unit. Just click this site to hack the region code ; http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks

To keep it simple, this means that DVD players and DVDs are labeled for operation on within a specific geographical region in the world. For example, the U.S. is in region 1. This means that all DVD players sold in the U.S. are made to region 1 specifications. As a result, region 1 players can only play region 1 discs. That's right, the DVDs themselves are encoded for a specific region. On the back of each DVD package, you will a find a region number (1 thru 6).
The geographical regions are as follows:
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.

The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs


Hope it may help you;

Regards;
