1. Hack for PAL p-scan using the supplied remote is "play", "159 222 023 00" , then press "play" for region 2 player

2. Enter RC6 command via Pronto

[For multi-region using a OneForAll (URC7560), to generate the RC6 code:
2.1. The remote should be set up to control the DVD (setup code 0539).
2.2. Press the DVD button.
2.3. Press the Magic button.
2.4. Press 085.]

2.5. The display should read '----'.
2.6. Enter the following with the normal Philips remote:
[On newer models, there appears to be 11 spaces in which to enter a code].

222 222 005 255

The player should now be able to output pal progressive scan + be region-free.

I am trying to play dvds from England (Region 2) on this dvd player and bought it specifically because it is region free - plays NTSC and PAL, so thought it would be an obvious choice. I can get the dvd to...


Are you in the US? Your TV system is NTSC. The player possibly plays NTSC and PAL(European system) discs on PAL TVs only. Try to find out from the user manual of the DVD player if you can change the output signal to NTSC. Now it is PAL even though you are playing NTSC discs.

Is there a way to change the region code on a Sony HCD-S300 Please?


Unfortunately, you have a DVD player that is "Region Specific" and cannot be changed. Your system has a region code printed on the back of the unit and will only play DVDs that are labeled with identical region codes. DVDs labeled "ALL" will also play in this unit. If you try to play any other DVD, the message " Playing this disc is prohibited by area limits." will appear on the TV screen. Depending on the DVD, no region code indication may be labeled even though playing is prohibited by area limits.

I bought a Samsung BD C6900 from USA designed for region 1 and A . Living in Europe I cannot play my european DVDs and BDs ? Are there any solutions to change the region code ?


Here is a solution: http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks/samsung-bd-c6900/10895

Please note, however, that even after region code hack, it may remain NTSC only, so if you are planning to play European DVDs recorded with PAL system, it may not work.

It is possible (almost certain) that the GB map you have is licensed to be used on that particular model. It is like Apple not allowing an Ipod owner to play music not downloaded through iTunes. You should consider buying a new GB, or even a European map valid for your GPS.

I can not play any european DVD on my dvp fx930 bought in USA.Please help i live in Belgium.


you have to change the DVD region setting of the machine to be able to play those european discs. Look for a code to make it region-free if you can. Just do search in the net you might be lucky.

I have just bought a Panasonic DVD-LA95 but did not realise that it is Region 1 only. I need to change it to region 2 to be able to use it here. Can you help please.


you need to check that it supports pal output, if its a european unit (check the manual and player bottom for the ce mark) then it will play pal discs and will need reverting to the multiregion upgrade ( a disc and a few button presses about £20 online)) if its an american unit then it wont play pal discs even if you do manage to multiregion it.

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.
