    No, it is not. Those LG DN798 DVD offers are players that have been updated to region free. The one I have has not received the fix.

    Thanks - but already saw that. That particular file is damaged and I cannot download. Tried sveral times.

  • carneyjl Oct 08, 2008

    Thanks - but already read this - all it gives is sites to buy new DVD's. It also states that inserting a chip is not an easy thing to do - I am not an engineer.

Can you try these steps?

To get region free, 1. goto setup. 2. Move to the LOCK icon. 3. press number 0 button on remote 7 times (0000000). This will toggle Region Free or Region Lock.

Hi there.. I found a hack. Its actually for Aiwa but it worked for my LG DVD player.. Give it a shot

  • Download the zipped file aiwa_hv-dh1.zip containing the ISO file with the multiregion crack.
  • Unzip the zipfile with e.g. WinZip.
  • Burn the ISO file aiwa_hv-dh1_regionfree.iso onto a blank CDR disc, with your favourite CD recording software.
  • Switch on your TV and insert the CDR in the DVD drive.
  • When prompted, select 0 for muliregion and then press enter/ok.
  • Power off your DVD and your rights as a consumer to view the DVDs you want, are restored.
You can also try this hack(Both of them work):

Tip

Playing DVDs from other Regions


To change the Region code on your DVD 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 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) now updated replacement program is Passkey for DVD and for Blu-ray discs Passkey for Blu-ray.

These are available from: -

I CANNOT PLAY REGION A DVDS ON MY 3D BLU/RAY PLAYER BDP- 7500 PHILIPS DVD BLU/RAY PLAYER COULD I PLEASE HAVE A SOFTWARE UPDATE OR SOME KIND OF CODE TO UNBLOCK THE PROBLEM OR DO I REQUIRE A MULTI REGION...


No disc in tray
Press Home
Scroll to settings
input code: 13893108520

The settings will pop up and you will see that the DVD region is now set to 0 (meaning region free).

I have checked the hack on a BDP8000 (region 2)and it sets the region to 0 (the 7th. digit from the left) alright, but it does not make the player region free as a message from the disc (MGM) comes and tell that the disc is not supposed to be played in this region. The region on the player can be changed to the region by changing the "x" in 138931x8520 to the actual region you want to play.

Try this out. The hack codec for blue ray are not yet published so it is not possible to make Blue Rays totally region free as of now.

How can i change the region code on lg hl-dt-st-dvdram gsa- hion dvd burner on pc


You can only change the region code 4 times and on the 4th change the DVD drive will lock permanently on the last change.
To change the region code you can update the firmware in the DVD drive to region free (if there is one available) or install a region free software to defeat the region code.

How do I unlock the dvd zoning on an acer laptop?


There are many expensive software apps that work on your PC like http://www.dvdregionmaster.com/ and http://www.dvdidle.com/dvd-region-free.htm both cost about $40 (£30) so use them if you wish they will not permanently change your drive region just fake it !

The surefire way is to search for a region free firmware for the DVD-ROM drive.You will need to be careful and backup the original and ue the recommended firmware flasher with the AC power connected. To check that it has worked use DVD Region free.

An easy way to do this is use VSO inspector and then use the check firmware update button at the bottom to search also take a note of the firmware version, this will not only search for a zone locked update but will also find a few sites with firmware region free hacks.

I have many NEC drives like the NEC ND-3500A the best place to look is here
http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/page/en/

Use the Binflash GUI for Windows 32bit (x86)
http://binflash.cdfreaks.com/download/1/5/necflash_wingui.zip

There are many other cool sites for other makes of drives let me know If I can help futher.

I am unable to change the dvd regional setting to australia (4)but the list says i have one change left


Do you know where to change the region setting?
If not go to the Device Manager - click on DVD/CD-ROM Driver - then right click on your DVD drive, and click on Properties then DVD Region. You can change your region you require.
If you cannot change the region and the region is locked or you have run out of changes, you can install Region Free software on your computer that allows you to play DVDs from any region.
There may be freeware available on the Internet (do a Google search), but I use DVD Region Free from www.dvdidle.com
it costs a few dollars but I have no problems with it, my DVD drive is locked on Region 1.
There are firmware upgrades available for DVD drives that make them region free, but if you make a mistake with the wrong firmware update then your DVD drive is now a piece of junk.

Want to know how to set my LG dvd/hdd player to multi region


IF there is a code for it you will have to check on some of the sites that have region hacks for DVD players. Not all players have the capability of changing them to region free. I looked to see if your model was listed on a couple of the sites that have directions, info and or firmware updates to change region settings on various makes and models of players, and I didn't find yours listed anywhere. It may use methods from other LG models, but you have to do a little research, some google searches and a little trial and error. Keep in mind that applying these hacks can render your unit inoperable and not recoverable. You might want to look into getting an inexpensive player from Phillips, Durabrand, Apex or one of several other manufacturers that are easy to find codes for and simple to change region coding, and in alot of cases cost less than 50 USD. Phillips are the easiest to get codes for and they are reasonably priced in most department stores like Target and Walmart or at Best Buy and Circuit City. Durabrand are Walmart brand players that cost 25 or 30 dollars and they are easy to do as well.

Hope this helps

Cheers
