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 ? :(

    Thanks, but this is the one I said doesnt work for this player. I have tried it 10 different ways. Holding pause, pressing pause quickly, pressing pause and enter as indicated on another site... I have tried it all. This code doesnt work.

    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.

I am looking for region 2 zone unlocking code


Hi and welcome kurt_lund ,
If you only want to change the region code because you have moved to another zone ,or you need to play external zone discs , do this , in order to give your player access to them :
Go to the Device manager , look for the DVD / CDRom Drives , double clic on the player's name and go to DVD Region .
If you intend to definitely unlock your device , this could help :
