SOURCE: Unlock Pioneer DVR-531H

Seeing this question over a year late but.... My Pioneer dvr-531h locked-up twice (no buttons work) - so i unplugged it for 10-30 min's. Plugged it back in, gave it 5 min's to 'warm up', then pressed 'power'- gave it 5 min's again- then it was fine.

Anyone know how to make it stop 'grinding'??????????????
(the unit has the built-in hard drive, with this, I hear the constant grinding that you sometimes hear on a computer. It does this when the power is on or off. It is loud enough to drive you mad.

I just bought the CH-DVR 1600 @ Target. This is just a temporary workaround to enable playing of region 2 DVD disks (don't have other regions but believe it will work also), until the real regional unlock is available.

1. Insert the region 2 DVD disk and close the tray.
2. Wait for the "Wrong Region" popup to appear in the upper-right corner of your TV screen.
3. The display on your DRV reads "STOP" at this point and the "Wrong Region" popup has disappeared.
4. Press the number "1" button on your DVR remote and a small input popup will appear in the upper-left corner of your screen.
5. Do not press anything else and the DVR will accept this entry as a chapter # and proceed to this chapter to start playing the movie.

NOTE1: The DVR runs in a somewhat restricted node, e.g. the DVR display still reads "STOP" and some remote functions do not work, such as "Menu". The input numbers correspond to the chapters on the DVD disk, so you can experiment and get to the menu once you hit one of the extra feature chapters with a "back to the menu" link on it.

NOTE2: I’m anxiously awaiting the real unlock sequence, as I tried most of the old ones posted here, none seemed to work.

also try this
-Switch player ON with no disc in the tray. Close tray and press MENU, 1, and 9 on the remote control. A menu should appear with the Region Option. Highlight the Region entry and press ENTER on the remote. Type in the Region you want. (Put 0 for code free) Press ENTER again to confirm choice. Press OPEN/CLOSE TRAY button and put in movie.

Region codes

i have a firmware update for sale £10 Via paypal for 3100 & 5100 makes player region free, but resets all settings to factory defaults, so you would need to save all programs & films you have recorded.
