Question about Sony DVP-NS55P DVD Player

2 Answers

Open and Closes way too many times!

Hi, again, Worldvet!  I had asked you about the NS57P (after giving the 55P a shot just in case it was the same) several weeks ago but when i tried it the tray opened and closed like 200 times until i finally stopped it realizing it opened 30 times when the code was 00030 and with the new code being 12 thousand something, didnt want it to open and close that many times.  I am assuming these directions match what you had sent me, bu i only skimmed tm, so if there is a further correction, please let me know!  Thanks for your troule shooting help, kt66ny

Thanks for trying- called Sony and they said company policy they cant give out the unlock info- I shared what you explained in your letter that by law they have to, but they wouldnt budge! :(   The DVDs we are using are just run of the mill rent at Blockbuster/buy from Walmart DVDs- not sure what format though.
Well thanks for trying to help- I guess we will just have to buy an EU DVD player. ~Kt66ny

I'll give it another look.

In the time since we last worked together, a point came up among we techs that there are certain, mostly Sony Chip based, DVD players that just will not play an EU based DVD which uses a format called PAL. In the US we use NTSC. These two specs differ in the rate of frames per second, with PAL having less and NTSC more. As I pointed out, some Sony chips sold in the US will not ever work with PAL encoded DVDs.

Do you think your situation may be influence by this and not just a region code issue? As I may have mentioned before, US and World courts have determined you have the Free Will to move and live anywhere you choose and that DVD player manufacturers cannot impose artificial limits on what country that can be used in. That is why Region Code Hacks (as they are called) are not illegal. In fact, should you call your DVD player's help desk, they have to by law give you the same work around. Likewise, should you take a player to an authorized service center they are also bound to make the changes for you at no cost. There have been tales of people trying this and getting the run-around and also being charged. They can' t legally do this, but many just pay the tech for fixing the problem and consider it a bargain. Should the fee be exorbitant, I would call a local consumer organization and a local TV station and ask for their help. This often gets things rectified and lets others in your are know the facts.

Let me know, if you are simply wanting to view DVDs you rent in the EU that are PAL encoded or not.

Sony DVP-NS57p region code change

On these Sony DVD players we run up against their 'efforts' to defeat DVD piracy. And, even though Courts have determined you have the 'right' to move where ever you want to live, and then watch your already purchased DVDs in that new country the DVD players still will not allow you to view your DVDs.

All that said, should the sequence you entered not work for you, Sony has installed a program in your onboard chipset to defeat your efforts.

I'll take a minute or two to see if there is an alternate method for your particular DVD player. In the long run Sony Customer Support is supposed to help you change this, they are required to do this. But, Sony is a huge company and getting to the right Help Desk of theirs is not an easy hill to climb.

Let me see what I can do and get back to you.

Sony DVP-NS57P all region

Try this,
1) Plug the DVD Power Cord to the wall jack, but DO NOT Turn On the player;
2) With the Remote Control, press: Display, Top Menu, Clear and Power;
3) It will enter in the Service Mode;
4) Choose option 2 and then 4;
5) It will ask for an Input Code and Current Code (its 5 spaces), press 1245 and then Zero;
6) Leave all Zero erasing 1245, and on the bottom field all Zero too, then press Enter;
7) So the DVD Display will show a Zero (all Region-Free),     then press Power to Turn Off.
