Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

3 Answers

Hi, I have tried to hack my Samsung DVD R150 but appear to have made a mess. The first time it appeared to work, but I can now only play Region 0/All DVDs so obviously it is not set to multi region. I now cannot get it to accept any code to change it back. Any advice welcome.

    When I say it will play Region 0 or Region All dvds, then any DVD that has a single region code, other than 0 cannot be played. How do I revert back to original software?

  • beegee7 Sep 27, 2008

    I obtained code from internet hack forum. There are a number of sites and they all seem to give the same advice and codes. I thought your service would be able to give more advice. I'm not sure Samsung will give out multi region code, as it negates the reason for them not being multi region when you buy them.

    I have had 4 emails but only seen 2 replies. The first reply has disappeared and the second is shown as #1, and I do not know what has happened to #3 and #4 unless they are repeats of #2, which is shown as #1! Can I conclude that you cannot help me?

  • beegee7 Sep 27, 2008

    I do not wish to Accept Solution, but cannot see any further replies other than #1. Do I need to Accept Solution to see further replies? If I do then I will not be able to see your answer again. Please email me on barry.gee1@ntlworld.com if I need to do anything to see replies. My comments are shown in full but only reply I see is #1.

I think you need to contact samsung and get code for multi region .It is not possible to generate code for your dvd player.

I have an LG FB126 DVD system that only plays region 4. What are the unlock codes to play region 1 and how do I do it??


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.

DVDV809-04


You need to convert your machine to an all-region player. The following hack works for Diamond Vision models 803 and 807 - there's a good chance it will work for the 809 provided they've used the same firmware for this model.

The region-free hack works as follows:

1.) Turn on the power and wait until the 'NO DISC' message appears, then press OPEN/CLOSE on the unit itself to open the door of the DVD player

2.) On the remote control, press SETUP. A menu will appear onscreen.

3.) Enter the following number sequence via remote: 1 3 8 9

4.) A different menu will appear. Your cursor should now be sitting in a box with the current region displayed. Use the UP and DOWN arrow keys on the remote control to display a specific region's numerical code, or select '0' (this is the number zero - not the letter o ... this is the region-free setting).

5.) Press ENTER and then SETUP to exit.

6.) Your DVD player will now play DVDs from all other regions. The code only has to be entered once. Powering down will not cause the Diamond Vision to lose its region-free setting. An added plus: it automatically senses PAL/NTSC signals but it will output to an NTSC tv set.

Hi I live in Australia and added this model.



acknowledging: Region code hack posted by ZoidsGodzilla, November 22 2006: for the Samsung DVD-V5600

1. Press the DVD button on your remote (the Samsung logo appears)
2. Press the SUBTITLE button on your remote
3. With your remote enter the code: 76884
4. The current region is displayed on the top left corner of the screen. (e.g. 4)
5. Press 9 on your remote (Region free)
6. Again press the SUBTITLE button on your remote
7. Enjoy the Region free player

If your player is NOT Region 4 by default then you will need to Substitute the Numbers in Step 3 with the ones Below.

Region codes:
RC 1: 2, 9, 3, 3, 4
RC 2: 3, 8, 7, 6, 7 (or 5, 7, 5, 3, 8 )
RC 3: 5, 6, 7, 3, 2
RC 4: 7, 6, 8, 8, 4
RC 5: 5, 3, 8, 1, 4
RC 6: 2, 4, 4, 6, 2

For Example if your Player was Purchased in the usa ( Which is Region 1) then Step 3 would read :-

3. With your remote enter the code: 129334
