I don't think that it is illegal to change the region of a DVD player as a DVD drive in a computer can be changed easily up to 5 times before they are locked on one region. Sony Blu-Ray players at this point don't have a hack code and they have to have a hardware mod to play both region A and B Blu-Ray discs. There are inexpensive Phillips DVD players that are region free or they have an easy method to make them region unlocked. I don't know of any Blu-Ray players that have that feature, but you can get a N. American region coded player that will play both PAL and NTSC, but you will have to use a voltage converter as N America is 120V 60Hz and Europe is 220-240 @ 50hz.
The other option is to get a Blu-Ray/DVD RW drive for your computer and set it as a region 1drive and connect it to the TV for playing US discs.
There are other things you can do but those ARE illegal or questionable and I can't post them here.

Best of luck

It is illegal to change the zone on a DVD or Blu-Ray player. You should invest in what is called a Multizone Blu-Ray Player - it will play any disc from any region. That is the only legal answer I can offer. YouTube does, hoewever, feature hacks on unlocking the region code - but it is still illegal.

My previous request concerned BDP-S550 player that I want to unlock for all regions for my DVDs


No the problem is not solved and I've had trouble accessing your site to send this reply.
There is no standyby button on our remote as advised in on-line chat.
We will now be taking our player for an hour's drive to a techie with whom we can be face to face. I should have known better than to think I could do this over the net, let alone pay for it on my credit card.

Blu Ray player turns on, displays "Welcome on the screen. After disc is inserted, "Wait" appears on the the screen and then it freezes. What is wrong?


This sounds like your Sony player is not reading the disc.
I have bought faulty DVD discs before that have given this same fault!
- I assume you have tried a disc that you know works in another DVD player?
Remember, your Sony Blu-Ray should be able to play ALL REGIONS of standard format DVD discs, so you should get sound & images from any one you choose.
