Okay first of all before I did it, I was nervous if it will work, will my DVD F*** Up. Do the following key presses on the remote and bingo your player will be ready. Note: There is no time limit on how quick you press the buttons. Press each command carefully. 

Switch on your DVD Player till you are at the big DVD logo.

2)Press 1, 4, 7, 2 
3)You will now enter a new technical screen. 
4)Press UP three times .

    and click on 'Product Support' a new window will open, 
    click on 'Device Driver' in the menu at the left side. 

    click on 'DVD Player/Recorder' under Product and roll down to 'Software Update for RH3xx series' and click 
    on 'RH3xx.iso' choose SAVE. Save it on place where you will easy find it. 

    When the file is downloaded, open it with Nero or similar CD-burner program. Burn on a CD-R and label it Region-free. 

    Put the CD in your DVD-player, a window will open. This windows inform you what region the player is looked at. Enter a '0' with the remote to choose for region-free. Take out the CD. Power off the DVD and power on again and the DVD is region-free. If you put in the CD again it will show you that the actual region is 0 (zero). 

    I used this methode today on my RH387H that I bought two days ago and it worked to 100%. It will work on all RH3 models.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try it one more time and follow directions carefully:

  • Open DVD tray
  • Press the '0' key on the remote three times, waiting about one second
  • between key presses. The 'Region Test' screen will appear on the TV.
  • If you don't get this screen, then power off/power on again and start over.
  • If the Region Test screen appears, enter '0' for all-regions.
  • Press pause to save and exit.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

7. Press 8, 4, 2, 6, 9 using keys on remote. (if your player is already set to region 2)
8. Press ENTER on remote.

If hack work after the second ENTER player will power off automatic.
When power on again this was region free, I can confirm now read region 1, 2 and 4.

There is a region hack for Sony SR200 and this hack might work on your SR300. It is worth a try.

1) Switch on player
2) Open tray compartment
3) Using the remote enter 2812
4) Press 9 on key pad and then enter or Nav Ctr button
5) Press CLEAR to exit

This should clear the region.
