First off. Just found your site and used the great region free code. Thank you. I got this player for a handful of DVDs. A lot of inputs are used up on my Onkyo 705 with HDDVD and Blue ray. I wanted to just move a hdmi cable from the Blue ray to the Philips DVP5992 whenever I wanted to watch a european DVD. When I plug in the HDMI cable I do get sound but no picture on the Sony Wega KV-34HS510. I even then try a composite cable at the same time but I get a jumping black and white picture. I then unplug the HDMI cable and the composite picture turns color and remains steady. (Of course no sound.) I then check on component on another tv input and that picture is ok but on plugging in hdmi again the sound comes back and component goes black. Also in the Philips DVD SETUP I can never select HDMI on the VIDEO setup page as it is shaded out. Maybe my DVI Sony TV is to blame. Any thoughts would be great,Thank you.
You can try out by connecting the CVBS (Yello) out from player to TV and connect HDMI out from Player to TV. Goto CVBS input on Sony TV. Select set up and you should get the HDMI Video options availble. Try to change the resulution and check for Video on HDMI source.
Which disc you were playing PAL or NTSC? PAL should work for Europe.

Region hack to blue-ray part is not possible with any blue-ray players. You can make it region free to its DVD part.
<span>How to fix the orange screen back to normal!</span><br /><br />The other day i turned on my Philips DVD player model number: DVP5992 and the screen was orange red, instead of blue/grayish! I have tried to google the problem, but no luck. So what i did is, i disconnected the power cord and the HDMI cable and waited for like 30 min. After 30 min i plugged it back in and my screen went back to normal, being blue and gray!<br />If you have this problem, do this, and your screen will turn back to normal.<br /><br />Also if you want multi-regional code to play all regions DVD's, do this:<br /><br />
<br />select the Preference Tab
(4th setting to the right)<br />keep that tab open and Press 1,3,8,9,3,1 <br />Press up/down on remote key to select "0"
<br />and hit "OK" then hit setup to exit.
<br /><br />good luck and enjoy!<br />Naztech<br />
There are three options you can try: 1. download the DVD drive's firmware from the manufacturer and re-flash the drive's firmware, this will reset any region code in 99% of all DVD drives. http://www.ehow.com/how_2316521_flash-dv? 2. you can use software that, in realtime as you play the videos back, removes region code out of the file transfer stream from DVD to playback software. The best software to do this that I know of is called "AnyDVD". http://www.slysoft.com/en/anydvd.html 3. use region free DVD playback software like VLC, which is freeware. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ The first option is the riskiest, if something fails while flashing the firmware, it could disable the drive, but it is 100% FREE. The second option involves buying software and making sure its running before watching any DVD's in the future. The third option is probably the safest, cheapest, and simplest for you. The DVD drive is not going to prevent playback of a region 1 or 2 movie if its set to region 4, its the playback software that makes this decision. If you rely on commercial DVD playback software or Windows Media Player, they will not allow the playback. VLC is region free, it doesn't even check the region the DVD was produced for.
I found solution: Go to Google and type - DVD help. There is a site with codes for DVD players. http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks/philips-dvp-3260/9309
Just type in the codes by: Press "Setup" Scroll to "Preference" using the LEFT/RIGHT arrow key Press "138931" and a pop-up screen will appear. Use the UP/DOWN arrow key to choose the desired number. Press "OK"
