Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

I bought a Philips DVP3980 on the promise that I'd be able to go online and get instructions to unlock the regional zoning to make it multizone. I haven't been able to find these instructions -- can you help?

Unlock a Philips portable DVD Player Pet 741/37


It worked for my Philips PET741/37:

1. Power ON the DVD player without a DISC inside
2. Press the skip keys in this order (the keys are under the "disc menu" and "stop"): right, left, right, left, right, right, left (YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO SETUP MENU, just do this in the "blue screen".
3. It will show a menu with region, now use the arrow keys to select "region" and change to "test 0" (all regions).
4. Press OK to confirm. Enjoy

Our philips DVP3252 was multizoned but is now playing just zone 4. I have instructions with a code number but can't get it to work - I think I might be missing a step in the instructions.


HELLO
Try this hack.
Press the Setup button on your remote control

Using your remote control, highlight but do not select the Preferences menu

On your remote control press following buttons in sequence: 1 3 8 9 3 1

Using the Up and Down buttons on your remote control select 1 for region 1, 2 for region 2, and so on, or 0 for multi-region playback

Press the Enter button on your remote control

Press the Setup button on your remote control

I hope this works for you (:-)
