To change the Region code on your player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region. You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made. NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change. If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the the player will be a piece of junk. The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free from ;- www.dvdidle.com/dvd-region-free.htm
20 minutes after posting the same problem.... I figured it out, ahah... So one case is that you turned off your unit before the firmware update was ready (caused internal damage to your unit) so you might have to send it back. However, what I did was I uninstalled the firestudio cd/driver w/e the heck it is that came with it and then installed it again. That way the universal driver deals with the software for the firestudio the way it should. After doing that and restarting it, simply turn on your unit and it should be red for a few seconds (i thought i was still screwed) but then it turnes blue and syncs... so try that... i might just work.
