Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

3 Answers

I need to change the zone (region) code on the LG HT353SD DVD player

I have the dvd player named in the subject line. I moved to the uk from the US and 99% of my dvd collection is US, although my husband has many from the uk. I need to remove the region restriction on this player, but the ONLY "code" or "hack" I can find out there ... doesnt work for this player.

Help ? :(

    This code for viewing the firmware works, but I cant change anything once im there. Still cant change the region tho.





    To view the firmware version of this player


    1.
    Press the Setup button on your remote control

    2.
    Select TV Aspect and place the cursor on the 16:9 Wide option

    3.
    Using your remote control enter the code 1, 3, 9, 7, 1, 3 and 9

    4.
    Press the Enter button on your remote control

    5.
    You should now see the version information screen

    6.
    Pressing Setup button on your remote control exits this info screen

    Well, what version is the firmware and what drive model and firmware version do you have? Maybe we can beat this another way.

This procedure applies to all LG's models that support the "All" option for region codes.

1. Power on (NO Disc.)
2. Press Pause
3. Enter 314159 (with remote) Display will show "FF"
4. Quickly press "0" (for all region)
5. Press pause
6. Power off and power on after 20 secs

I hope this solves your issue.

    My apologies, you unit does not support the "ALL" option for region codes, it only supports Region 2. Therefore you CANNOT change your unit region to any other region. I am sorry about the misque, and I know this is not what you wanted to hear, but it the only solution.

You will need to get a second dvd player locally to play those movies. Some DVD players allow you to change region codes but limit you to 5 changes, it locks in on the 5th.

How do I unlock my LG RC388 to play other region disks


YES, it can be changed to view all regions. I've just done my new RC388 (bought it 4 hours ago) and it works.

To start the hack:
Click the home button on the remote, go to the Setup page, highlight the 16X9 TV aspect ratio and enter in this coded sequence: 1 3 9 7 1 3 9

A new factory menu now comes up on the screen.

To change the values of these options hit the enter button and scroll with arrow keys until you get to the option you want to change. For the region code hack replace the value of "option 5" with the value of: ff

Press enter.

(Changing this value will set unit to region code 0 which should allow any region to be played on the player.)

Now, hit the "return" button to save and exit.

Switch off the machine - switch on - all is well now.

Good Luck,
Will
