Im wondering if anyone know how to turn off the region zone for a Sony DVP-FX750. It was purchased in america with a zone 1 & we have zone 4 in Australia. I've tried to burn a DVD to play, but...

This question is one of my most frequent on FixYa.

There is no "region-free" or "region 0" setting for any DVD player/recorder. Only DVD media can be region free. Every single offer to set a player or recorder to region free that I am familiar with has been a scam. The reason for this is to prevent DVD piracy.

Most DVD players and recorders (SONY included) have provisions for making a maximum of THREE changes to their region code. A fourth attempt at changing the region code will result in the player/recorder being turned into a paperweight.

Bkhopkins- in your case, you will be able to change your region code from region 1 (USA) to region 4 (AUS). Doing so will leave your player with 2 more changes, maximum. Check your manual for the procedure and the exact number of changes you are allowed. Please be aware that after you change to Region 4, any Region 1 DVD's will not be viewable unless you switch back, which will use another of your three changes.

You have an alternative to salvage your DVD's by downloading a program called DVD Shrink. This program is capable of removing the region code from your DVDs and saving them as region-free at the sacrifice of some quality. You will at least the be able to view your US DVD's without sacrificing a region code change on your player.

Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

Possibly in the wrong output mode. (i.e. in PAL-60 when NSTC is needed)
On the remote, press the PAL/NSTC button to cycle through the output modes.   Choices are: NSTC, PAL, PAL-60 and AUTO.  
Also make sure the correct TV type is selected in the System Setup menu.

Multi region code

This is not possible without bypasssing/cracking the firmware on your DVD player. your player will generally allow 3 changes to the region code. If you have not changed yet, you may do so within the DVD player's setup options.

Incorrect region codde

This is for DVP31XXX series i hope it works all on DVP31 series. It has been tested on DVP3146K /51 and it has been worked...

1. Make sure there is no disc in the player.
2. Turn power off and on again.
3. Open the tray.
4. On the remote, hit 9879 and then 0. This changes unit to Region 0, meaning it'll play all regions.
5. Hit OK on the remote.

Good Luck Guys!
