Question about Samsung HT-F6500W/ZA Home Theater System - Ht F6500W 5.1 3D 1000 W Rms Blu ray Disc Player 3D Sound Plus, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Pro Logic Ii, Dolby Truehd, DTS, DTS 96/24, DTS HD, DTS neofusion Bd R, DVDRW, DVD Rw, CD Rw Bd Video
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 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.
There isn`t currently a region hack for Blue-Ray Disks
