Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, to my knowledge, the Sharp SD-HX600 is specifically intended for the North American market. It's power supply is limited to 120VAC 60Hz, its Signal System is not only locked but the hardware is only for NTSC color system. Having said these, then the reason if only plays region 1 is because it is incapable of playing other regions DVDs. It does not have the hardware for the color system of the others. Sorry.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Sony Home theatre


at this time there is no region hack available for this model to my knowledge.

Cannot run certain DVd on my Philips S3560 home theatre. It states region code locked for that particular DVD.


Most DVD players have their Region Code locked to only work for the country that the player was purchased from. In other words if you bought your player in Britain and then tried to play a DVD you bought from the US, you would get the error message that you are now seeing. The manufacturers do this due to the licensing agreement they have with the studios. This way you are limited to DVD's only from the country of origin.

That being said they are people who hack into DVD players and are able to read the basic operating system of the player. They are then able to find the unlock code that will allow the player to play DVD's from any region. They will then post those codes and the method to enter the codes, on different websites so that anyone with one of the model numbers listed can unlock that player.

Unfortunately not all players have been hacked this way. I searched the different sites on the Internet and your player is not listed. This means that for now you will only be able to play DVD's that are coded with your players Region Code, or DVD's that are branded as having no Region Code on them. There are sites on the Internet that sell these types of DVD's, and you can find them by simply searching using Google.

The other alternative is to purchase one of the hacked machines that are available on the Internet. These seller's have hacked their players permanently so that they will play any and all Region Codes right out of the box. Again if you do a Google search you will find many sites that can sell you a hacked unit. They even sell the same type of system as your present home theatre.

Can only play DVDs for one region code.


Most DVDs can only play DVDs from a single region. However, they sometimes allow you to change the region at least one time. Another option is to make your DVD player region free. This is a hack that can be performed. Once you do this, you can play DVDs from any region.
