If you are wondering the reason why DVD players are locked/region specific and which region of the world you are in visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvd_regions

Can't give you the exact code as you have not specified the DVD model.

Option 1)
go to: http://www.dvddemystifiziert.de/codefree_en/magnavox.html
If your DVD player model isn't there choose option 2 below:

Option 2)
The following link will lead you to a site with different Magnavox DVD player models and the corresponding codes.

http://www.multi-region.net/magnavox

if the code starts with "REGION FREE ONLY FIRMWARE UPGRADE MODE" you will need to find, download and burn to disc the firmware for your dvd player and follow the instructions.

Firmware is the program that tells DVDs what to do and not what to do.

How do I unlock my LG RC388 to play other region disks


YES, it can be changed to view all regions. I've just done my new RC388 (bought it 4 hours ago) and it works.

To start the hack:
Click the home button on the remote, go to the Setup page, highlight the 16X9 TV aspect ratio and enter in this coded sequence: 1 3 9 7 1 3 9

A new factory menu now comes up on the screen.

To change the values of these options hit the enter button and scroll with arrow keys until you get to the option you want to change. For the region code hack replace the value of "option 5" with the value of: ff

Press enter.

(Changing this value will set unit to region code 0 which should allow any region to be played on the player.)

Now, hit the "return" button to save and exit.

Switch off the machine - switch on - all is well now.

Good Luck,
Will

the code is usually a parental code to stop kids viewing potentially adult content. Could you not contact the person the unit was purchased from and ask them for the code?

Need to make my dvd player multi region


This is not a Toshiba problem.

Most DVD players have region codes. If you play a DVD from your region 5 times, it will permantly set the code.

Blame the movie and record companies.

Even most computer DVD drives have region codes.

It's unlikely the sales person was educated enough in this topic to even know what a region code is.

Here's something else to consider. If the DVD you want to view is from England, they use PAL not NTSC, so it's unlikely you could view it on your TV anyway.

Get your son to copy the file from the DVD onto a USB FlashRAM drive, then mail it to you. They don't have region codes. Now you can view it on your computer, and make your own North American region DVD. Also, you could always have him e-mail the video to you, then burn it yourself.
