After getting clarification from Fixya I can pass the links below to you to check yourself

Some players are harder than others to do this but you may want to
try here
or here
Comments:
Toshiba's and JVC's are the harder ones to do

I use a Phillips myself as it is not only cheaper but has much more going for it than many of the higher end units. i throw anything at it and it just plays

The older the unit that harder it is to do the region free thing with.
I let my EX have the panasonic (big grin)

If you cant find a fix then look at the codes available for cheaper brands and how easy it is to do it before you purchase one.

SOURCE: Hi there!! I recently purchased

To make the Bluray section of the player region free one has to modify the internal hardware , for which some additional electronics has to be inserted in your machine ( approx: cost $ 100 ) by a professional who would charge you an additional fee. Liz my advice to you is for 100$ you can buy region A bluray players from the internet !!!. Now I don't know if in your part of the world they would deliver it. Or ask somebody to get it for you.

Im wondering if anyone know how to turn off the region zone for a Sony DVP-FX750. It was purchased in america with a zone 1 & we have zone 4 in Australia. I've tried to burn a DVD to play, but...


This question is one of my most frequent on FixYa.

There is no "region-free" or "region 0" setting for any DVD player/recorder. Only DVD media can be region free. Every single offer to set a player or recorder to region free that I am familiar with has been a scam. The reason for this is to prevent DVD piracy.

Most DVD players and recorders (SONY included) have provisions for making a maximum of THREE changes to their region code. A fourth attempt at changing the region code will result in the player/recorder being turned into a paperweight.

Bkhopkins- in your case, you will be able to change your region code from region 1 (USA) to region 4 (AUS). Doing so will leave your player with 2 more changes, maximum. Check your manual for the procedure and the exact number of changes you are allowed. Please be aware that after you change to Region 4, any Region 1 DVD's will not be viewable unless you switch back, which will use another of your three changes.

You have an alternative to salvage your DVD's by downloading a program called DVD Shrink. This program is capable of removing the region code from your DVDs and saving them as region-free at the sacrifice of some quality. You will at least the be able to view your US DVD's without sacrificing a region code change on your player.

Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

Multi region code


This is not possible without bypasssing/cracking the firmware on your DVD player. your player will generally allow 3 changes to the region code. If you have not changed yet, you may do so within the DVD player's setup options.
