    The download page I reported above does not exist anymore, as it as removed on LG request.

    You need to ask the code for your model to

    As codes online are regularly removed by LG

    Try the following general procedure, it may not work:

    "With no disk (I used tray open)

    Power On

    (optional tray open)


    Use arrows to select SETUP

    Arrow and enter for start menu

    Down 4 to lock icon

    enter 0000000

    This toggles between region protect and region free

    tested works w/ PAL R2 disks on USA R1 NTSC system

    See more here.

    The only effective way is the download, as you may have noticed all the links that you find on this pages are not working, this because LG is removing the downloads.

    Try writing at the mail above, if they had not been deleted already.

    If no joy, write to and ask the download.

    Region Hack is still considered illegal by manufacturers, and LG removed all the downloads of the software patch.

    Ginko Nov 23, 2008

    I know the download websites are not available, this is because LG removes them contiuously.

    Try the email, here is again

    Or try the following downloads:

    or" target="_blank" rel="nofollow" >

    Please be aware that LG suggest not to use this kind of procedures, and that there is always the possibility to damage your set by using a software patch not distributed by LG.

I have an LG FB126 DVD system that only plays region 4. What are the unlock codes to play region 1 and how do I do it??


I was made to understand that there are several versions of this model. Pls try:
  • Turn on your DVD player - with no disc inside;
  • Press pause followed by 3 1 4 1 5 9;
  • screen will display current region
  • Press 0
  • enter
  • Press On
  • "No disc" will appear
  • Eject Tray
  • Press '0' more than five times.
  • Press Pause
  • Press Off
  • Press "pause"
  • Press "1 4 7 2"
  • edit the 5th number group in the code
  • the first number is the region code
  • example; if the number is "12" then the region is set to 1
  • another example, if the number is "42" then the region is set to 4
  • so if you want all regions set it to "02"
  • when finished press "pause" again to exit from the menu
  • power off the unit and turn back on again.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
