Question about RCA DRC290
I have several region 1 dvd's that i cannot play on my samsung which is region 2 and would like the code to make it multiregional.
SOURCE: CODE REGION
Turn the player on and open the disc tray. Press [CLEAR] followed by  and one of the keys ... corresponding to the region you want to set the player for (1 for Region 1, 2 for Region 2 and so on, press 0 for Region 0 or Region Free). Turn the player off then on again for the changes to take effect.
To verify the region code, press [SETUP] followed by . A screen will then pop up with the firmware info and the current region code setting. Using [SETUP] did not work for me.
To modify the region, turn on the unit and open the disk tray. Using the remote, press [CLEAR][zone code] and cycle power on the unit (not necessary to unplug the unit, simply use the front left <POWER> button. Example: Turn on; open tray; [CLEAR] ; unit OFF, unit ON and you'll get a zone free DVD player.
To confirm the zone code, turn on DVD player, (unit may or may not have a disc, check that the disc tray is closed, and press [SETUP]. You'll have all the firmware information (Version xx.xx.xx.xx SUB-VER xx.xx.xx.xx;
8032 xx.xx.xx.xx; Servo xx.xx.xx.xx; RISC xx.xx.xx.xx; DSP xx.xx.xx.xx; Region Code 0) That's that final "0" that you are looking for!

This is not promised to work but a known hack for your model of DVD player is...
Make sure the player is switched on, and is at the Samsung logo
screen. Also check the tray is shut and that there's no disc in the
Now press the REPEAT button on the remote, followed by a five digit
code. This code is different depending on what region your player is
*currently* set to:
R1 - 29334
R2 - 38767
R3 - 56732
R4 - 76884
R5 - 53814
R6 - 24462
So for example if you have an R2 player, press REPEAT-3-8-7-6-7.
If you've done this correctly (and your player is compatible with the
hack), you should see a number at the top left corner of the screen
corresponding to the current region.
Now, pressing any number from 1 to 6 will change to the corresponding
region. Or, press 9 for auto-region mode.
Next, press OPEN/CLOSE to open the tray, followed by Standby (or DVD
POWER) on the remote to close it and put the player into Standby mode.
The next time you turn your player on, the new region will be set.
Don't forget that if you want to hack it again, you'll need to use a
different code, as listed above. If it's currently set to region 9,
use the code for the last *proper* region you set it to.
People have reported a problem with the codes given however another was posted (57538) try that one to!!
Hope this works post back and let me know. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

What follows is mostly generic advice which applies to the vast majority of DVD players which I've tinkered with.
Your problem normally only happens if someone else has played a different region coded DVD on your machine. Normally you get seven chances to reset the region code before the machine locks itself permanently to one of them. before the changes are permanent the player will usually ask you if you want to change the region code when you try to play a disc from the wrong region.
Before doing anything else it's worth asking other members of your household if they have recently used the player, especially if you know anyone may have been using imported discs. If they've used up all of the region changing opportunities then hacking the machine might not work at all.
If you use a search engine you can search for DVD-P181 hack and these will guide you through the process to make your DVD player a multi-region machine, but there are three different hacks which I've seen for the same player so you may need to try them all.
