I recommend the obvious solution which is to plug it into an S-Video compatible TV, VCR or DVD player then change your settings. You could make it really for yourself if you want by looking for some software that you burn onto a CD which you make bootable and when you run it in the player it resets everything to factory default settings. But seriously make it easy on yourself and just plug it into an S-Video compatible device (TV/VCR/DVD, preferably a TV for ease, though it doesn't make any real difference). Best of luck to you anyway!
I don't know if this will work but I can atleast try to help
1) Open the disc tray.
2) While the tray is open, enter the following code with the remote's numeric pad: 2812
3) To change the region code, press the "Enter" button repeatedly. "Region 9" means all regions will be enabled.
4) Close the tray to save the desired setting.
Other Zoran Vaddis 776 based players have other options on this
screen (such as Macrovision Enable/Disable) but this player only offers
the region code setting (note the unused available space for other menu

I have a Yamaha DV-S5550 and recently did the same thing. Our players may have the same menu system. Give this a try. Turn the power to the dvd player on. Using the remote, follow this key sequence exactly. Press the onscreen button. Press the down directional key once. Press the right directional key once. Press the down directional key six times. Press the right directional key once. Press the down directional key once. Press the left directional key once. Press the onscreen button. Your player should now be set to NTSC output. Good luck!
Slide down the cover on remote control.On the bottom right side you'll see a little switch(usually is cowered with the warning white little sticker).Slide that switch to DVD1(or DVD2 if somebody got different setting).Power up DVD/VCR combo press system menu botton,go to settings,change to DVD3(factory default)and there you go.Good luck.

Same problems with my unit. But, try this... I think it worked. First, you can not get to the setup screen for the unit with a DVD in the player. So, remove the DVD first: Unplug the unit, wait a few seconds, plug it back in. Then hit the DVD open button and remove DVD in player.
I think the issue with not reading certain DVDs is a problem with the "parental control" on the unit. Without setting parental control there were a few DVDs I could not play and sometimes (not always) I was asked about parental control before a movie would play. At the Sony Blue DVD screen, select Setup on the remote control. Select DVD setup and get to Parental control. Set a password. This will then take you to a "rating" screen. By setting the rating very high (I set mine for #8) any movie should play without needing the password. With no password set, you can not change the "rating" and hence mine was set at #1 (kids). It seems to have worked for now anyway. Good luck.
