Your device is designed for playing back region 1. It will also playback disks recorded with a region setting of all. The region setting of the device is fixed. Also it will only playback NTSC, and not PAL . This is also fixed on your unit. Sorry I could not bring you better news. However there are many burning and conversion programs you can use on your computer (ie Nero Vision, ConvertXtoDvd,..) which provide you the optional settings you are looking for, and allow you to burn in the setting you choose, allowing for playback on your Philips device. Good Luck!

3. Press Close Tray - there should be a sign on the TV screen saying something like 'Region set to 0'
4. Turn off the DVD player for 5 seconds

SOURCE: How to make DVP5990/37 Region Free

First I recommend that you upgrade the factory firmware to the latest version. The current version is .31 and available here. Click "I accept" to accept the license agreement and start the download. Open the zip file and burn the file named DVP5990_37.bin to a CD. Put the CD in the DVD player and it will begin the upgrade and open the DVD tray. Remove the CD but leave the DVD tray in the open position. After just under 10 minutes (6-8) the DVD player will report that the update was successful and close the DVD tray. Press the setup button, go to preferences scroll down the choices (past the bottom of the screen) and select reset to default values. The player will reboot.

Next press Setup
select the Preference menu
Press 1,3,8,9,3,1 on the remote control.
Use the up/down arrows to select region "0" which means all regions.

If you ever get a disc that won't play correctly due to a region error, just use the code above to select the correct region for the disc and you will still be able to play it.

Cannot run certain DVd on my Philips S3560 home theatre. It states region code locked for that particular DVD.


Most DVD players have their Region Code locked to only work for the country that the player was purchased from. In other words if you bought your player in Britain and then tried to play a DVD you bought from the US, you would get the error message that you are now seeing. The manufacturers do this due to the licensing agreement they have with the studios. This way you are limited to DVD's only from the country of origin.

That being said they are people who hack into DVD players and are able to read the basic operating system of the player. They are then able to find the unlock code that will allow the player to play DVD's from any region. They will then post those codes and the method to enter the codes, on different websites so that anyone with one of the model numbers listed can unlock that player.

Unfortunately not all players have been hacked this way. I searched the different sites on the Internet and your player is not listed. This means that for now you will only be able to play DVD's that are coded with your players Region Code, or DVD's that are branded as having no Region Code on them. There are sites on the Internet that sell these types of DVD's, and you can find them by simply searching using Google.

The other alternative is to purchase one of the hacked machines that are available on the Internet. These seller's have hacked their players permanently so that they will play any and all Region Codes right out of the box. Again if you do a Google search you will find many sites that can sell you a hacked unit. They even sell the same type of system as your present home theatre.

InVision Revolution series car DVD need to unlock region codes


region codes are only available from the internet by bright people who have figured out how to "Hack" into the software of the device and they call this a "Region Hack", as of this date there are no unlock codes avail for this unit, most of the codes are for mainstream home units and not the car mounted DVD systems. The manufacturer will not provide software updates, the legal status of region hacking is under litigation to determine whether it is copywrite infringement, what this means that soon it will be illegal..
