I Tried this on a completely different LG model te LG DV276 and instead of pressing "0" seven times you only press it 3 times, then you can change the region code to 1 and back to 2 or whatever you want.

To make the unit play all regions do the following: 1. Put in a DVD that will play (in our case region 2) 2. When it starts playing, press eject 3. While the drawer is open press "0" seven times 4. When you get the "Congrats" press Enter and done! Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Im wondering if anyone know how to turn off the region zone for a Sony DVP-FX750. It was purchased in america with a zone 1 & we have zone 4 in Australia. I've tried to burn a DVD to play, but...

This question is one of my most frequent on FixYa.

There is no "region-free" or "region 0" setting for any DVD player/recorder. Only DVD media can be region free. Every single offer to set a player or recorder to region free that I am familiar with has been a scam. The reason for this is to prevent DVD piracy.

Most DVD players and recorders (SONY included) have provisions for making a maximum of THREE changes to their region code. A fourth attempt at changing the region code will result in the player/recorder being turned into a paperweight.

Bkhopkins- in your case, you will be able to change your region code from region 1 (USA) to region 4 (AUS). Doing so will leave your player with 2 more changes, maximum. Check your manual for the procedure and the exact number of changes you are allowed. Please be aware that after you change to Region 4, any Region 1 DVD's will not be viewable unless you switch back, which will use another of your three changes.

You have an alternative to salvage your DVD's by downloading a program called DVD Shrink. This program is capable of removing the region code from your DVDs and saving them as region-free at the sacrifice of some quality. You will at least the be able to view your US DVD's without sacrificing a region code change on your player.

Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

Same as for the LG RC195. Turn on TV and player, press home key on player remote; in setup, scroll down to the padlock icon (when you get to the "padlock" option on your remote, leave it there, don't go to the menu to the right which has three options--rating, password, area code. Leave it on "lock", press 0000000 and you will be region free.

Wrong zone

Take it to a Panasonic agent and they will multizone it for you. If <12 months since purchase, it is free of charge, otherwise it will cost a small fee.

Report your Video shop to RiSA. They should legally only carry zone 2 DVD's as a rental copy and a sale copy has two different licenses of use. If they have zone 1 DVD's it means they are bypassing the local supply chain (ie getting it outside South Africa) and damaging the industry as a whole.

Most DVD players are restricted to a certrain zone. e.g. europe is zone 2. If your DVD is from a different zone, say USA or asia, it will not play. This is so the makers of DVDs can release different films to different markets in order to maximize profit.
