The short answer is, you can't. The long answer is that a very few units have secret settings menus that will allow you to do this. However, even with this ability the drive will only allow you to change your region 3 times before becoming permanently locked to the last selected region. If you have a PC, it is much easier to buy a drive and change its firmware to allow any disc to be played. Once you do this, you can take any disc you own and re-burn it on your PC as a region 1 disc which will play in your unit. I do this all the time because some movies I buy from the UK were not released in the USA.

Anyone got the code for changing the area code for a LG RC389H video combo unit


If you mean to play DVD’s that you may have purchased in another country the see below

For that you need to do a Google for "mymodel region free" or "region free hack"

Not all DVD players are capable of this often very simple modification that many manufacturers build into DVD player. (Usually just involves the remote control and a combination of keys)

Your search will turn up a lot of sharks that want money for the hack (fix)

IGNORE THEM

There are a lot of sites where the information is free.

If after opening up the region free parameter you still have issues and you still want to play your dvd's from around the world you might want to consider another one

I am STILL (lauren) unsure of FIXYA's policy on this topic and am awaiting further clarification on the issue with regards to handing out these codes as this is not HACKING in the same sense as pirate software etc. it is just enabling an extra feature that the manufacturer provided.
I would prefer not to get my @ss kicked. That is why I can only give you the search terms rather than site links or specific information

Unlock code


LG DR275




Two solutions for this one,

For older models try:

1. Power on and open the tray

2. Press Setup

3. Highlight but don’t select the lock icon

4. Enter: 0,0,0,0,0,0 and 0 (seven zero’s)

New models require a little more work try:

1. Download the following file (user: dvd pass: unlock)

http://www.dvd-unlock.co.uk/dl/lg5000.zip

2. Unzip the downloaded file.

3. Burn the folder called �RMTM0000� to disc.

4. Power up your DVD player with the new disc and you should be presented with a region change menu, use 0 (zero) for region free.
