Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

Multi Region Hack Code

I can only play region 2 discs.  The set up menu has the option of putting in lots two letter codes for several countries (e.g. U.S for America, JN for Japan)  but the DVD does not recognize any of the codes I put in.  Is it possible to find a multi region hackcode for this machine. 

Can anyone offer solution /advice or am i doomed to viewingregion 2 DVD's only?  Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks Hobes.

Re: Multi Region Hack Code

To find the region hack codes, I'd need to know the exact model of DVD player you own.

Here is a website that has many resources concerning DVD players. Please search carefully and I'm sure you'll find the answer you need.

Good luck!

Region code

When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China

There are computer programs capable of remove the region code from a DVD, but the result should be burned on a new DVD. Most players don't allow a change in the region code more than once. So on your player nothing to hack. Sorry

For all other options, please use Google.

Hello my sharp dv-nc200 dvd player can only play regional code 4, but I have dvd's from europe, which are regional code 2, can I change this somwhere in the setup or menu or elsewhere thanks a lot for...

If it is set to only play region 4 discs, then that's what the player can do - you cannot change the region code and I don't believe there is a hack to unlock this particular model to make it region-free.

The only types of discs acceptable are those which match the region of the player or discs which are 0 (region-free). I have never found a menu option to change region settings in any player. It is not modifiable nor accessible. There may be a player on the market which is multi-region compatible and will play your region 2 DVDs perfectly; just not this one. It is a restriction, not a fault.

Do not fix what isn't broken.

I have a AMW V99 DVD Player and do not how to use it. Need help. I do not have the manual or original remote.

AMW V99 DVD Video Player with Remote

Region code hack posted by TR, December 19 2003:
This seems to work for the AMW V99 ($19 in after Thanksgiving sale at Best Buy)

1) turn on the dvd
2) open the tray
3) enter 9735
4) change the region code to 0
5) exit to main menu
6) password 8888

Best $19 I ever spent! (Bestbuy)

Futher confirmation the 9735 hack DOES work. Also gives options to adjust rating (I assume to control the maximum rating of DVDs allowed) and a PASSWORD option, I'm not sure what this is for. I performed the hack with the tray both OPEN and CLOSED.

Other hack posted by trickypuss, January 14 2004:
Dunno if anyone else has tried this, but I put a backup dvd created with DVDXCopy into my V99 after using the region-free hack mentioned above. It asked me to input my password (default is 8888) and then the movie begins playing off the dvd-r. Password is input with the remote, and there's no confirmation. Just banged out 8888 and pressed play. Previously it would just sit there when I put in the disk without asking for password or anything. Neato. So this explains one use for the password function.

AMW S99 / V99
  1. Turn on the player (disc tray has to be empty)
  2. Open the disc tray
  3. Press 9, 7, 3, 5 (or 8, 5, 6, 1)
  4. Select region (0 = multi-region)
  5. Close the disc tray
