First I recommend that you upgrade the factory firmware to the latest version. The current version is .31 and available here. Click "I accept" to accept the license agreement and start the download. Open the zip file and burn the file named DVP5990_37.bin to a CD. Put the CD in the DVD player and it will begin the upgrade and open the DVD tray. Remove the CD but leave the DVD tray in the open position. After just under 10 minutes (6-8) the DVD player will report that the update was successful and close the DVD tray. Press the setup button, go to preferences scroll down the choices (past the bottom of the screen) and select reset to default values. The player will reboot.

Next press Setup
select the Preference menu
Press 1,3,8,9,3,1 on the remote control.
Use the up/down arrows to select region "0" which means all regions.

If you ever get a disc that won't play correctly due to a region error, just use the code above to select the correct region for the disc and you will still be able to play it.

Will not play dvds


  • make sure to use lens cleaner to ensure DVD player is free of dust and dirt on laser lens
  • another cause would be that your DVD player is no multi-region or not region free, because many DVDs have region settings. in order to make your philips DVD player region free (can play all region DVDs) check link below:

Can I play a dvd region 2 dvd on a Philips 5 disc changer 783c dvd player? its a uk release of a german film. The DVD player gives system menu selections stating many nationalities


just because it may have many languages does not mean it is multi-region.

what you need to do is search for "region free hack" and the model of your player.

If there is one for your player the process takes less than 30 seconds to do (did on my single play philips which is region free whoo hoo)

beware though you may have to spend some time finding the free codes and there are a lot of sites out there that want to charge for this info (dont pay just persevere)

The method is usually power on the dvd press eject whilst holding down a key combnation until a menu comes up then selecting 0 ZERO as the region or somthing similar there are variations even from the same manufacturer.

I disagree with the whole region scam and do not class hacking a dvd player as any form of piracy. its simply allowing me the freedom to choose what i watch from whatever country i want.

1. Go to Setup. [from remote]
2. Select the Preference Page.
3. Press 1, 3, 8, 9, 3, 1 on the Philips DVD Player remote.
--> It will show current region code [ for example 5 ]
