The site I have used for the last few years is called VideoHelp.com, and they have a section of the site dedicated to DVD HACKS . It's a simple search engine, just take down the name and model# of your DVD player and if a hack exists (there are thousands out there) then just print out the instructions, take your remote control and program your DVD player. And there you have it. You can now play disks from Japan, England, Australia, anywhere you want!
Here's the best part.
You don't need an expensive player. In fact, the easiest players to unlock are at the cheaper end. I bought a Phillips DVD player (DVP642) for $40 from BestBuy a few years ago, unlocked it in 10 seconds and watched a bunch of British comedy the same day. Yesterday, I upgraded that player to a DVD player with HD capability for the impending HDTV we'll need to buy. I checked out VideoHelp for players on the BestBuy website that had a remote hack available and found this one - a Samsung Progressive-Scan DVD Player with HD Upconversion - Model: DVD-HD860 . It was $89.99 (on sale from $99.99) and then I used the following region hack:

  1. Power on
  2. Open tray
  3. Push the info on remote once (with supplied remote) You will see numbers.
  4. Press 9 for multi-region. keep trying until you see the number 9 appear in upper left corner
  5. Power off
  6. Power on
That was it. A nice new upconvert DVD player that plays any DVD, and it got a great rating on CNET too. All for less than $100 including tax. So, if you do have a DVD player that you'd like to convert, you can try it. The site does WARN that any action you take may invalidate the warranty, so try it at your own risk. All I can say is that I've never had a problem. Best of luck.

Unlocking regional codes


Hi,

To my knowledge, there are no known current region free codes for this particular model.

You can of course try the common Toshiba codes in the hope that one will work. They may be found here or here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Dv276 unlock


Hi,

LGs are relatively easy to make region free and therefore should be able to play any DVDs. Below is one of the methods:
1. Using the remote control open tray
2. Press 0, 0, 0
3. Region selection will appear.
4. Select 0 for no region (ie. all regions)
5. Press pause button on remote control.
6. Turn Unit off and back on again.
