Cannot view my dvd purchased in korea. already changed the region setting to korea, but still no results. can you help?


You need to ensure that the region code of the disc is the same as the dvd player, just because the disc came from Korea, it does not necessarily mean that the disc's region is that of Korea's. If you can change the region code to your dvd player, simply set it to '0' so you can easily view any disc from any region.
Many LG units will allow this by pressing eject on the remote control, letting the disc drawer open then pressing 0 (zero) six or so times and that should bring up the dvd region code prompt.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

This is happening because your DVD is NOT all region, you need to change the Code.

Anyone got the code for changing the area code for a LG RC389H video combo unit


If you mean to play DVD’s that you may have purchased in another country the see below

For that you need to do a Google for "mymodel region free" or "region free hack"

Not all DVD players are capable of this often very simple modification that many manufacturers build into DVD player. (Usually just involves the remote control and a combination of keys)

Your search will turn up a lot of sharks that want money for the hack (fix)

IGNORE THEM

There are a lot of sites where the information is free.

If after opening up the region free parameter you still have issues and you still want to play your dvd's from around the world you might want to consider another one

I am STILL (lauren) unsure of FIXYA's policy on this topic and am awaiting further clarification on the issue with regards to handing out these codes as this is not HACKING in the same sense as pirate software etc. it is just enabling an extra feature that the manufacturer provided.
I would prefer not to get my @ss kicked. That is why I can only give you the search terms rather than site links or specific information

Trying to play dvd but says wrong region soneynhv-dx350ab?


Hi, if its saying wrong region. then either your player or disk is incompatable. region 1 ntsc ( USA ) Region 2 ( UK ) et,c. check your players region coding is compatable for your country, and that you are also playing a dvd with the same region coding as the player. alternatively is to try and find a region free or multi-region solution.

Need unlock code for LG V774W


Howdy,

I just tried this on LGV774W and it worked :))

To make this player region free (or change the region), do the following:

* Ensure that there is no disc in the player (ie: "no disc" is displayed).
* Press PAUSE
* Enter 314159
* Enter the region code (0 for region free, or 1-6).
* Press PAUSE
* Turn the player off for a few seconds.
* Turn the player back on
* Voila! You beauty!!
