Region free code samsung


Unless you bought a DVD for multi-region(very difficult to find), most especially without the remote, you will not be able to change the region code. These firmware changes are generally uploaded by inserting a disc with the firmware on it. These units are manufactured this way with firmware(software) downloaded, or imbedded within the Microprocessor(computer or memory) and not be changed. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

I CANNOT PLAY REGION A DVDS ON MY 3D BLU/RAY PLAYER BDP- 7500 PHILIPS DVD BLU/RAY PLAYER COULD I PLEASE HAVE A SOFTWARE UPDATE OR SOME KIND OF CODE TO UNBLOCK THE PROBLEM OR DO I REQUIRE A MULTI REGION...


No disc in tray
Press Home
Scroll to settings
input code: 13893108520

The settings will pop up and you will see that the DVD region is now set to 0 (meaning region free).

I have checked the hack on a BDP8000 (region 2)and it sets the region to 0 (the 7th. digit from the left) alright, but it does not make the player region free as a message from the disc (MGM) comes and tell that the disc is not supposed to be played in this region. The region on the player can be changed to the region by changing the "x" in 138931x8520 to the actual region you want to play.

Try this out. The hack codec for blue ray are not yet published so it is not possible to make Blue Rays totally region free as of now.

Region2 dvd titles play main movie nothing


it seems to me that your dvd player is not region free. it will play only region 2 dvds. to get the region free code u need to ask the dealer where u have purchased the dvd player. some dvd players do not have option to change region or to be region free.

I have a panasonic dvd player model no: DMR EX78 I live in south east Melbourne Australia and have purchased a few dvds from Amazon, sometimes I get a message saying something about regions, I spoke to my...


The problem with Amazon DVDs purchased is the region codes each disc may contain. Since a majority of them would be from USA, and their region is 1, your player being region 4 would not support that code.

There is no fault here, it is just a restriction. Some discs work, some don't.

No one likes region restrictions - particularly on DVDs bought legally, and I doubt very much Panasonic would provide any information on unlock codes for you.

Be warned: if you do successfully find a hack to unlock your player so it becomes region-less, expect the risk of either the player failing later, or not reading any discs at all. I am sure there are 'region-free' players around now, which don't contain a restriction and can play ANY DVD any region.

On the other hand, if you have a DVD drive on your PC, and it is set to region 0 or all regions, and the discs play fine in it, but not the player, then you could view those particular discs that way; you do not need to make any copies of any of the DVDs just to watch them.

Will not play dvds


  • make sure to use lens cleaner to ensure DVD player is free of dust and dirt on laser lens
  • another cause would be that your DVD player is no multi-region or not region free, because many DVDs have region settings. in order to make your philips DVD player region free (can play all region DVDs) check link below:
