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

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).
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!

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

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.
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.
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.
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.
