  1. Open the disc tray
  2. Press and hold 6 on your remote
  3. Press MENU/PBC - The RC shows up on the screen
  4. By pressing MENU/PBC several times you can select the options: 0>2>3>4>5>6>0 (0 = codefree)
  5. When you've selected the desired RC, press "Angle"
    "Writing Region ID" appears on screen
  6. Hold down "Angle" until "Writing Region ID" vanishes. This can be up to 5 secs.

    HI - I have the same problem, but I cannot seem to get past step 3. Which menu button? There is 'Set Up Menu" and 'Disc Menu' on the remote. I can bring up set up menu, but not sure where to go from there - please help. NB: The home theatre system/DVD was fine, but something has changed and now won;t play DVDs saying it is wrong region and then ejects the disc. Thanks for your help, Melanie

DVD players will only let you change the region code 5 times before it will lock and will not change again.

The danger in using DVD unlock codes is that they can invalidate your warranty, or if done incorrectly, "brick" the device. Essentially it's not legal to give out these codes.

Nonetheless, many people find unlock codes by googling the brand and model of their DVD.

How do i change my region code in my sony vaio dvd player. it is a matshita dvd ram. my current dvd region code is set to 3 and i want to play a dvd of region 2/5. the number of changes now is zero in my...


You can only change the region code 4 times and then it locks onto that region. There are firmware upgrades for various model DVDs on the Internet that makes the DVD drive region free, but if you make a mistake in upgrading the firmware or installing the wrong firmware version then the DVD drive is turned into a piece of junk.
The best way to solve your problem is to install software that defeats the region code so you can play DVDs from any region.
I use a region free program fronm DVD Idle, it is not very expensive and there are other similar programs on the Internet. Use Google to search for them.
Have a look at www.dvdidle.com

DVD Region Locked to Region 3


Hi there.
You only get 5 turns to change the region code on a slimline DVD/RW, once its locked to a region thats it, the only way to get them five goes back again is to flash the firmware on the DVD/RW.
You will need to jot down the make and model of the slimline DVD and see if there is a firmware update for it.
NOTE: Flashing firmware with the wrong version can damage the DVD and render it useless.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Hi,

you will have to go into the setup screen and find the region setting and change it to region 1. Note that you can only change the region about 5 times, and once you have changed it that many times you can't change it again. I usually recommend that people buy 2 DVD players if they need 2 regions, etc.

Greetings. do you have the DVD region code unlocker for a Samsung DVD-HR-753. Regards Karl


Hi,

Pls try (using the remote):
  1. Power on the player with no disc in the tray
  2. Press the ‘DVD’ button
  3. Press the number ‘0’ five times
  4. Press the ‘Repeat’ button (NOT ‘Repeat A-B’)
  5. Enter the numbers 5 7 5 3 8 quickly. The current region code should be displayed in the upper left corner
  6. Press the number ‘9’ for region free (multi-region)
  7. Open the tray and close it again
This was originally posted here. Alternately, some versions meant for other regions would require a different set of codes. Pls reference the link for variations.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Region code


Hi,

To my knowledge, due to firmware design, most JVC region locked DVD players can not be unlocked with entry codes through the remote. While some JVC models could be unlock with a firmware update or a PC interface neither of which is available for a TH-P3.

Im sorry but thats just it for this model.

Alternately, a long method is to convert/copy the DVD disc itself from any region to whatever region your JVC is locked into. There are freewares just for this purpose. An example is DVD SHRINK 3.2.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Unlocking the region code for dvd player


Hi,

as with any pc related dvd drive. they,re usually subject to between 3-5 user changes. if they,ve been used up, then theres no chance to reset or change them, but to purchase a new drive.
There are alternatives, such as locating a program like DVD Region and CSS free, which will allow your drive to play any region Disk.
