Sony has designed this player so it cannot have the region code changed, it is hard wired into the board as part of their copy protection scheme.

Most users have rated this player as 'junk' (sorry to be the bearer of bad news) and should be replaced.

Maybe you can sell it on Ebay.

My suggestion is that the less expensive the player the better off you will be in the long run as the cheaper brands and models use DVD drives meant for PCs and Macs. More expensive models have proprietary drives, such as Sony, and cannot be manipulated and are not very versatile in recording media and or playing copyright hacked copies of DVDs even if you own the original DVD but has been scratched.

The courts are still trying to figure out these protection measures as they are not fair use in terms of you the owner of a DVD and wanting to make your own backup copy for the kids to use.

Brand new sony portable dvd player dvp-fx820/p's motherboard got damaged according to sony people, it was an accident by my daughter she was drinking her apple juice and accidently a few drops just...

Liquid and Juice though incompatible with electronics (don't mix well) are
not always deadly. BUT you do need to gid rid of them completely. First
off, remove the unit battery and do not apply anymore power to it (via
the AC adapter). Because any liquid can easily find its way inside your unit,
(unseen to the naked eyes) you may have to have someone with electronics skills
taking it apart and using a soft tooth brush dipped in fresh water and removing
the sticky sugared liquid completely. Shake the board to get rid as much of water
from it and allow it to dry for a day. I have fixed many electronic devices
successfully this way.

Sorry, it's not possible. The DVP-FX810 is one of many Sony players where the region coding cannot be hacked without making internal hardware changes. To do so is not cost effective when you can buy perfectly good multi region (or at least hackable players) brand new for £30 including a few Sony models which can be hacked (e.g the excellent DVP5980 with progressive scan, USB input, DivX and HDMI upscaling, still widely available at clearance outlets for under £30).

If you want hackable players avoid Sony and Panasonic unless you have found a model specific hack prior to purchase as many of them have the same limitation.

Sorry there's no fix on this occasion, but I hope that you've found my reply to be of some use. All I ask in return is that you rate my answer.
