SOURCE: I have a Sony remote, RMT-D243A, that doesn't work.

With batteries in, hold the Enter button and the 1 button at the same time for more than 3 seconds. This should solve it. It essentially sets your remote into the proper command code.

SOURCE: cannot unlock sony RMT-D197A dvd player so that it

That, as the name clearly says, it's an remote number - ReMoTe . We need the actual model number of the player (on a sticker at the back of the player) and, if possible, the firmware version - it will be in the menu.
But i must warn you - any procedure you apply to the player will only make it region free (if possible), it will not make it play PAL encoded movies. That can be done only by changing / upgrading the firmware and a lot of models are region specific: they were designed to work on a specific region so no PAL support was ever in their firmwares.

Try to clean contact with contact cleaner spray( radio schack or computer sotre.

If the problem persist Reset with you code in your manual if you do not have the code go to: and download free.

After that if the probllem remain, your contact in the remote control is faulty.
Replace it.
Good luck, G-d bless you

I am trying to unlock the region code for Sony BDP-S5100 with the URC7740. The hack program refers to "press and hold the &#147 key. Where or what is "&#"?

I would have to guess, that is probably not the correct remote. I feel I must inform you, trying to upgrade your firmware, from an unsavory hacker, can turn your unit into a brick(doorstop). IMO, proceed with caution.
