Question about LG DR-4912 DVD Recorder
Power on the dvd player without any disc on it.
Press the PAUSE button and then the following numbers
3 1 4 1 5 9
Then you will be asked which region you want to set up.
0 = All regions. 1 = Region 1. 2 = Region 2 etc.
Then press pause again.
Then power off the dvd, and then turn it on.
I just did it with mine that was setup to only reagion 4 and couldn't watch region 1 dvds.. I set it up to = 0 (all).
Hope it helps.

Good news! It can be made to be region free. However it's not as simple as entering a code on the remote. You'll need to update the firmware on the player's chip. Read this forum to see how to do it. It's not hard but will take a little time to do,

Testimonial: "Burned the CD per the instructions in the June 5, 2009 post using Nero 9 and away we go, region free out of the gate."
enter 0520, then press up, down, left, right (these are the keys around the ok/enter button)
a message will appear on the screen showing current region
press 0 and enter
it should now play any region
hope this helps

y DV-220KV-K, which is sold as a Multi Region DVD player has locked up on me. The following message comes onto the TV screen...
(Player's Region Setting)
<1> : Region
<2> : Region
<3> : Region
<4> : Region
<5> : Region
<6> : Region
Pick out any one of these!
The message remains on the screen ALL the time and I'm locked out of viewing anything. The remote is locked and so I cannot pick any of the region numbers!
