Question about Philips DVDR3506/37 DVD Recorder
Does anyone have the region code hack for this unit?
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!

SOURCE: region code
1. Open the tray
2. press the following sequence using the number keys: 98790 (this is equivalent to the code 9879 with the zero at the end representing all regions)
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
5. Turn on the DVD player.

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.
