SOURCE: DVD Player region coding changes

You can only change the region code 4 times then it locks on the last change.
There are some firmware upgrades that can change the drive to region free, if you can screw it up or put in the wrong frmware upgrade then the DVD drive will be a piece on junk.
I suggest you install a region free software that will allow you to play and region DVDs.
Go to www.dvdidle.com to get their Region-Free software, it is not very expensive.

SOURCE: Changing the DVD Region code

Legally, the only way to resolve your issue is a new drive, the region code in the drive has been locked in the firmware and cannot be changed by normal means (You can search google for DVD region Code Cracks, but it is not recommended no legal)

Antipiracy laws mandated a limit to the number of times the Region code can be changed (5) and if you are going to be playing a lot of media from different regions, then get another drive and set it to one region (and mark the region on the drive) and use this for the other

SOURCE: I CANT CHANGE THE REGION ON MY DVD, although I have 1 change left

Try using a software called DVD Shrink to watch your DVDs on. But check if its legal to use in your respective areas.
You can see how many changes you have remaining by doing this.
"Right Click" on "My Computer" and select "Manage".
Select "Device Manager", expand your "DVD/CD-ROM drives", "Right Click" the drive model and select "Properties" and select tab called "DVD Region".
This will show you how many "Changes Remaining" you have and give you the ability to change the region (so long as you have available changes left).

Read this
http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/archive/dvdregion.mspx
Some manufacturers fix a region code in the windows registry.
Also you may be able to upgrade your firmware
of your dvd drive. (it may or may not start region count again but worth a try if nothing else will work.)

also u cna try this

it is that now that it is fixed, it is fixed for good unless you "flash" the drive's frimware. Check out http://www.vcdhelp.com for extra firmware for some drives. OR

Try putting in a dvd which is not made for multiple formats (i.e. Region 1, 2, 3 etc.), for e.g. I put in a Australian comedy disc which is only made for region 4, it enabled me to change back to that region. Hope this helps. If you are having trouble finding whether a disc supports multiple regions just try experimenting with a dvd which you might think is local to your country.

or try this out ....

you have to insert the DVD you're trying to play first, then try and change the region. It this might work.
Hope that helps!


or check this out

To change the region code, you must use a DVD disc that supports CSS
(Content Scrambling System).

Ran out of region changes for Acer Aspire 5920G laptop DVD drive, stuck on region 1, would like to change it to multi-regional, can you help tell me how?


  1. Look at your DVD player and find the name of the company that produced it. Then, find the product number. For example: a DVD 622 model from Phillips.

  2. Go to a website such as dvdhacks.co.uk/ to find DVD hack codes. The players will often be listed by the company name first and model number second. If you can't locate your DVD player on the website, type the model number and the company into a search engine to see if any other sites have the hack there.

  3. Follow the steps on the website. Here are the steps for the Phillips DVD 622:
    1. Hold the stop button on the remote until the disc tray opens.
    2. Press the numbers 2812 on your remote to access the region menu.
    3. Press the OK button to set the region code to 9.
    4. Turn the player off and wait several minutes.

  4. Test your DVD player with a previously unplayable DVD. If it doesn't work, check the web to see if there are any other codes listed for your player.

I'm on the fifth choice to change the DVD region on my laptop but it won't let me change it. It says (make sure your drive supports region 2 and that you have administrative previlage). It's my laptop so I...


Depending on the model of laptop many region changes are limited to 5. This is to part of the piracy prevention program. Many home theatre DVD players are also limited in this capacity. I would suggest contacting the manufacturers website and posting an email to their support forums. If the counter can be reset someone will know how there. I know that Lenovo, Panasonic, HP, and Dell all have similar limitations.

Region hack code for samsung dvd-p241


You can try to use this tip, which is generally used for all these Samsung models: DVD-709,DVD-809,DVD-909,DVD-511,DVD-611,DVD-615,DVD-811,DVD-M105,DVD-M105 E,DVD-M108,DVD-M203,DVD-M204,DVD-M205,DVD-M305,DVD-M405,DVD-P233,DVD-V530. I think that P-241 is about the same of P-233, which is unlocked with this tip. You can try, and then answer me if worked.
1. Make sure that there is no disc in the tray and switch on the player.
2. Cold start the player, by holding down the PLAY and STOP buttons on the player.
3. You should see a set of language options. Release the PLAY and STOP buttons.
4. Select your language.
5. Press REPEAT then the following codes for the required region the player is already set to (region you bought the player in) do not confuse this with the A-B button:
Region 1 - 2, 9, 3, 3, 4
Region 2 - 3, 8, 7, 6, 7
("E series M105", M205 and M305 users try: 57538)
Region 3 - 5, 6, 7, 3, 2
Region 4 - 7, 6, 8, 8, 4
Region 5 - 5, 3, 8, 1, 4
Region 6 - 2, 4, 4, 6, 2
6. A code will appear, indicating the region setting of your player.
7. Press 9 for region-free, or 1 for region 1, 2 for region 2, etc.
8. Press OPEN/CLOSE on the Player to open the disc tray. You may need to push the tray shut rather than use the player button, in order for the region not to be changed to 4 (M203).
9. Press STANDBY (POWER) on the remote control to close the tray. Next time the player is turned on it will set to the region specified. If the player halts on the FBI Warnings, press Forward Search x2 or faster.
On some models, you will have the ability to disable Macrovision, but you will have to turn off the Quasi-PAL option and set the SCART output type to Video rather than RGB.

Changing the DVD Region code


New DVD-ROM drives come with a firmware level RPC-2 with hardware protection. RPC 2 drives have a 5 change limit on regions, once the counter gets to 0 your drive is permanently locked to the last region it was set to. Even if you reformat or move the drive to another system it will still be locked to the last region. There are ways to get around it, some models have resetting tools made by 3rd parties to reset the change limit back to 5 and some also have firmware patches to remove the region lock.

The first solution is free VideoLAN player: click here to download VideoLAN. 

The second solution is free Remote Selector tool: click here to download Remote Selector. Launch remselec22.exe file. Click Control tab. Choose Enabled, and check all options Region Free, Disable Macrovision, Disable User Prohibition Click Start Player button, and try to play your DVD

Finally Load another firmware for your DVD drive which disables the region code protection.

4. Press the following combination of keys on your remote in this order to bring up the secret menu showing the Region Code.

Invlaid region code


Sounds like you are trying to play a DVD of a different region to that of the player.

Worldwide region codes, sumarised:

1 - US / Canada

2 - Europe

3 - Asia

4 - Australia

5 - Africa

6 - China

You can change the region code of the DVDR520H to any region or use region 0, which makes the unit multi-region to play DVDs from any region.

  1. Go into the main menu
  2. Highlight the exit button
  3. Type 2960

    This should give you access to a hidden menu form where you can change the region code.
