Question about JVC XV-501 DVD Player
I had one of these gifted to me. Fine except that the person who gifted it tried to be extra nice and make it Region Free. Sadly, as a result, it's RM-STHS3R remote won't work. Only the volume up and down on the remote consistently works and a few discs (only a few) will play, pause and stop with the remote. All the other features are accessed by this remote and are inaccessible. How can I restore it to factory settings? I can live without Region Free. Should I chuck the machine away?

It is not a permanent hack, you will have to to it over for every out of region movie you put in.
1. When "REGION CODE ERROR" shows on screen after you've input your wrong-region DVD you push "ON SCREEN".
2. When the DVD-menu is showing push "ON SCREEN" again and another DVD-menu will appear.
3. Move the arrow over to the clock and press enter. The menu asks for "TIME" and you write 0:00:00 and push enter.
4. You will now see the menu for the movie. Remove the DVD-menu by pushing "ON SCREEN" once. You can now watch the movie.
