1) Turn the DVDR3590H on, with no DVD in the drive
2) press HOME, so the browser appears
3) press PLAY/PAUSE. The display on the machine should say "BROWSER"
4) Slowly enter the following code: 159121212005255 (the numbers should appear on the display)
5) press PLAY/PAUSE.
6) Turn the player off

You might have to try it several times before the numbers will appear in the display panel. Don't enter the numbers too slowly either.

Region codes required for DVD's from England.

Hi its better to make your DVD region free,please follow these steps:The internet has made it easier to purchase obscure foreign movies on DVD that aren't sold in this country. DVD's have region codes so they will only play on certain DVD players. For instance, US DVD's are region 1 while Europe and Japan are region 2. The only way you can play a foreign DVD then is to purchase a region free DVD player or make your DVD player region free.

  • Get a DVD player. If you purchases a DVD player, make sure you purchase a DVD player that people have had success in converting to region free. If you already own a player, you will need to note down the make and model of your player.Step 2
  • Look up the DVD hack for your player. There are several sites that feature DVD hacks. Two popular sites are DVD Exploder and Video Help. Simply look up the make and model of your DVD player and check to see if there is a hack.

    Unlock sony DVP-FX720

    The problem may be you are trying to play DVDs from a specific region (Europe) and the player is set for another region. Region code errors will show up as "no Play" or 'region" Check the manual to see how to set the player to Region 0. A region machine will play any DVD. Sometimes the setting is on the menu - usually in the set-up screen under "region." I have re-set all my Phillips players to become Region Free through the menu.

    DVDs are region coded. This means that they will only play on a DVD player from the region the DVD was produced to be watched in. For example, an Australian DVD is Region 4. It will only play on a Region 4 player. If you try to play it on a player that is set for a different region, it will probably not play. One way around this is to get hold of a multi region player. These are widely available. Alternatively, you should be able to watch the DVD on your computer, although you may need some region free software if your computer's dvd player has been locked. Usually computer DVD players will allow you to play DVDs from any region a few times and then they will lock to a particular Region Code. If you are in North America, you will need a PAL player. The only other thing you may be able to do is to unlock your existing player to convert it to region free. Many DVD players can be unlocked but you would need to find the unlock information for your paticular player. Hope this helps....

    On page 45 of the user manual it says this:

    Both the HDD & DVD RECORDER and the discs are coded
    by region. These regional codes must match in order for the
    disc to play. If the codes do not match, the disc will not play.
    The Region Number for this HDD & DVD RECORDER is
    described on the rear panel of the HDD & DVD RECORDER

    If you changed the region codes on your player it will not work. They should be set back to 1 or whatever your model says on the back of the unit.

    If this unit was purchased outside the United States, it may not work in the United States.

    Here is a copy of the manual if you need it:
