Update DVD to Region Free

I have the opportunity to buy this DVD at a very reasonable price, but want the region free update. Can I change the region code on a LG DN798 DVD to region free?

    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.

    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):

Ns-d160a14 region free


Generally once you buy a unit you cannot change the region it will work on. If you want a region free unit you have to buy one that already does this. There are not many of these left as most reputable manufacturers conform to the requirements. Hopefully this will change in time..

How do i set up free region codes for my Toshiba SD-38VB dvd player? Thank you.


Hello

Press the eject button on your Toshiba DVD and insert the foreign disc. A window will pop up informing you that your DVD is a different region and ask you if you would like to convert to this region.

Click "Yes" when you are prompted to change the region. You will only have a certain number of opportunities to change your region. On the last try, your DVD will only play DVDs from the designated region.

Find out the Toshiba model number and use this to research a code that will break the region code assigned to your player. Each player make and model possesses a unique code to break the region code, so make sure you are using the correct one and follow it exactly as it is written.

Im wondering if anyone know how to turn off the region zone for a Sony DVP-FX750. It was purchased in america with a zone 1 & we have zone 4 in Australia. I've tried to burn a DVD to play, but...


This question is one of my most frequent on FixYa.

There is no "region-free" or "region 0" setting for any DVD player/recorder. Only DVD media can be region free. Every single offer to set a player or recorder to region free that I am familiar with has been a scam. The reason for this is to prevent DVD piracy.

Most DVD players and recorders (SONY included) have provisions for making a maximum of THREE changes to their region code. A fourth attempt at changing the region code will result in the player/recorder being turned into a paperweight.

Bkhopkins- in your case, you will be able to change your region code from region 1 (USA) to region 4 (AUS). Doing so will leave your player with 2 more changes, maximum. Check your manual for the procedure and the exact number of changes you are allowed. Please be aware that after you change to Region 4, any Region 1 DVD's will not be viewable unless you switch back, which will use another of your three changes.

You have an alternative to salvage your DVD's by downloading a program called DVD Shrink. This program is capable of removing the region code from your DVDs and saving them as region-free at the sacrifice of some quality. You will at least the be able to view your US DVD's without sacrificing a region code change on your player.

Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

HI I HAVE JUST MADE MY LG BD390 REGION FREE WITH THE HACK BUT WILL IT GO BACK TO REGION 2 WHEN I UPDATE THE PLAYER


Just out of curiousity, which code did you use for the hack? Many people have asked me and I haven't seen it yet. And yes, the update will mess with the hack, so you may want to rehack after the update.

SONY BDP-S350 MULTIREGIONAL PROB


You should get Asian firmware.

They are (despite printed DVD Region 3, BD Region A) all DVD region free. Tested on mine (bought in Thailand).

Panasonic BD30 was also DVD Region free. The firmware for that one is available from Panasonic website. Not sure if there's another way than automatic update from inside BD player to upgrade Sony.

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

Invalid disk error


Did you get this working? If not, then your DVD isn't supposed to be region free in the first place, and I can send you a firmware which I have used a hack in order to make region free. You can then take this firmware and follow the same instructions you used for the other firmware.
