    I need to unlock my Sharp DV-SL2200 DVD player to enable it to accept multi-region DVD's. Can anyone help with this?

  • sueles May 17, 2009

    The model number of my DVD was not listed on the link that you posted. Model number DV-SL2200W.

  • sueles May 17, 2009

    I haave already purchased this product and it is labled Region 4 and will not play any of the
    DVD's that I have labled Region 1. Can you tell me how to unlock this player so that it will play DVD's from all regions?

  • sueles May 18, 2009

    This site does not have my
    DVD player listed.

    I have a Sharp DV-SL2200W DEVD player that I want to make multi-region

  • sueles May 20, 2009

    I feel that I have paid for nothing as I could not get a suitable answer to my question. There appears to be no known hacks for my DVD player, and I have paid good money for nothing.

As I'm sure you know, DVDs are coded to a region of the world. Here's how it breaks down:
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Resevered for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0,9 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide
So, here in the US, we're Region 1. In the UK, discs are Region 2. Region 1 discs won't play in region 2 players, and vice versa. Or so I was told when I first moved here 6 years ago. But that's not true. Region coding can, in most cases, be removed from your DVD player using a simple remote-control code that unlocks the player.
Why do we have region codes?
I'm no expert on this, but I turn to a man who knows more than I do. Robert Silva from About.com had this to say about the subject.
"Movies are released in theaters in different parts of the world at different times throughout the year. That Summer blockbuster in the U.S. may end up being the Christmas blockbuster overseas. If that occurs, the DVD version of the movie may be out in the U.S. while it is still showing in theaters overseas.
In order to preserve the financial integrity of the theatrical distribution of a particular film, it is not possible (under normal conditions) to have a friend in the U.S. send a DVD copy of the film to the country where it is in theatrical release and be able to play the DVD on a player there."
So, in a word, money. However, since the massive surge of the Internet, file sharing and release dates in countries around the world coming closer and closer together, it's fairly ridiculous to have region coding. In fact, many players are now code free. But, if yours isn't (and most aren't) you may be able to unlock it in a matter of seconds...right now.
Enough background...how do I unlock my player?
The site I have used for the last few years is called VideoHelp.com, and they have a section of the site dedicated to DVD HACKS . It's a simple search engine, just take down the name and model# of your DVD player and if a hack exists (there are thousands out there) then just print out the instructions, take your remote control and program your DVD player. And there you have it. You can now play disks from Japan, England, Australia, anywhere you want!
Here's the best part.
You don't need an expensive player. In fact, the easiest players to unlock are at the cheaper end. I bought a Phillips DVD player (DVP642) for $40 from BestBuy a few years ago, unlocked it in 10 seconds and watched a bunch of British comedy the same day. Yesterday, I upgraded that player to a DVD player with HD capability for the impending HDTV we'll need to buy. I checked out VideoHelp for players on the BestBuy website that had a remote hack available and found this one - a Samsung Progressive-Scan DVD Player with HD Upconversion - Model: DVD-HD860 . It was $89.99 (on sale from $99.99) and then I used the following region hack:

  1. Power on
  2. Open tray
  3. Push the info on remote once (with supplied remote) You will see numbers.
  4. Press 9 for multi-region. keep trying until you see the number 9 appear in upper left corner
  5. Power off
  6. Power on
That was it. A nice new upconvert DVD player that plays any DVD, and it got a great rating on CNET too. All for less than $100 including tax. So, if you do have a DVD player that you'd like to convert, you can try it. The site does WARN that any action you take may invalidate the warranty, so try it at your own risk. All I can say is that I've never had a problem. Best of luck.

First try simple region hacks for Sharp units, they may not work on this model as this is a re-tagged pioneer.

See: Unlock Sharp DVD players

The unit is a re branded Pioneer DV-410V.

The Pioneer is made region free by installing firmware.

See Pioneer DV-410V region code.

The procedure is not supported by manufacturer and can damage the unit. Do it at your risk.The DVD may not work afterward.

Regards

  • 1
    Turn on your DVD player.

  • 2
    Open the DVD player's main drive, also commonly called the DVD "tray." The region cannot be changed while a DVD is in the machine, so many DVD players require the tray to be open as an extra precaution.

  • 3
    Push "Info" or "Setup" on your remote.

  • 4
    Use the remote to select the "Region" option as indicated on your TV screen.

  • 5
    Select "Region 9" to change the system to multiregion formatting. Regions 1 through 8 represent specific geographic locations and will not allow multiregion playback.

If your DVD player is not a multi region player you cannot play any other region DVD than the one specified at the back of the player. Check in y our user manual it tell you if it is multi regeon. Multi regeon players are bit more expensive.
