MAKING A SAMSUNG HT-F6500W REGION-FREE

I'm an expat, having lived in places like Singapore and India, and now in South Africa. I've got DVD's and BLURAY's that were bought in Singapore or India (or Europe for that matter) but the DVD-player I had (region-free; bought in Singapore)now no longer works and was replaced with a new one (the SAMSUNG HT-F6500W bought in South Africa). As this payer is set up for Region 2/B I can no longer play the DVD's and/or BLURAYS I bought in Singapore or India (as the codes differ). How can I get my new Home Theatre System 'Region Free' so I can play all the films I bought over the years?

1) Switch Player off then On (this is to clean-boot firmware).
2) Wait until main menu appears
3) Open Disc Tray and Close Disc Tray (May not be necessary)
4) As soon as "No Disc" is displayed quickly press REPEAT on
remote quickly use the following code for your current
region:
Region 1: Press - 2,9,3,3,4
Region 2: Press - 5,7,5,3,8
Region 3: Press - 5,6,7,3,2
Region 4: Press - 7,6,8,8,4
Region 5: Press - 5,3,8,1,4
Region 6: Press - 2,4,4,6,2
5) Your current Region will appear in the top-right corner
6) Quickly Press "9" before it disappears (It should replace
the code with a "9" in the corner)
7) Switch Player Off and then On again.

Note that REPEAT is part of the code so one smooth press of
6 keys is required.

DVD says wrong region ?


hi Nigel.
Region codes prevent playback of DVDs in other geographical regions. If you receive a region error while playing a DVD with RealTimes, this means that the region code of the DVD does not match the region code of the DVD drive. ... You can play Region 2DVDs only on a DVD drive that is set for Region 2.

How do you change the region on a DVD?Click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System. On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager. The DVD Region tab might not be available for all DVD drives. To configure your DVD drive to play discs from other regions, select a geographic area from the list of regions.

Hi have a Samsung DVD Player and i get a Region Error Message.


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
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Google for the programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.

You pretty much answered your own problem within the question.
In each country/region they have specific ways of making software & hardware. Usually if you travel outside of the region the code's will not match because they aren't formatted to work with each other.
It's the same with VHS & DVD players. American users can't play DVD's made in England. Since your Xbox was purchased in Singapore you most likely with have to get games that are made for asian regions.

You could get a region free dvd player, OR you could install "slysoft any dvd" to your PC as this lets your PC dvd drive run region free.

I have a Samsung HT BD2 region 4, I go many region 1, they wont play, how can I make it play?


To unlock the DVD code its defends upon what region you belongs or from were you bought the DVD unit. Just click this site to hack the region code ; http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks

To keep it simple, this means that DVD players and DVDs are labeled for operation on within a specific geographical region in the world. For example, the U.S. is in region 1. This means that all DVD players sold in the U.S. are made to region 1 specifications. As a result, region 1 players can only play region 1 discs. That's right, the DVDs themselves are encoded for a specific region. On the back of each DVD package, you will a find a region number (1 thru 6).
The geographical regions are as follows:
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 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.

The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs


Hope it may help you;
