Question about Televison & Video

I moved in from Europe! My DVD library just went out of use... because of the area coding of my new Samsung BD-P4600 player! I know there is a fix for this problem, but does anyone know it... yet? Man from the old continent

    Sorry my player is different model... quite new!



    Loader: LDv1.08_090224

    Region A/1(BD/DVD)


    Model BD-P4600_XAA

    ... the problem persists :-)

    There is a way to set this area code like in every system (software).

    Question is has it leaked out yet... I woul imagine Samsung would not mind

    since there is no criminal what I am trying to do... quite contrary!

    I will pay for information that leads to solution :-)

1. Turn on the player
2. Wait for the no disc message
3. Press REPEAT 57538
4. The number 2 displays in the top left corner
5. Press 9 for multiregion.

I tried it on a number of discs including The Patriot R1 which has the RCE coding as well and it plays it.

R3 and R4 play too. This means I won't need my old DVD player now.

I should add it doesn't allow region A blu-rays. No surprise there.
thank you and good luck....

Hi. Making your Samsung DVD Player regionless is a little bit tricky, and it is not guaranteed to work either, since it is not an offiicial process :) You can try this:
The trick seemed to be not holding the repeat key too long. 

For example, if your device is a Region B/4, running 080604.01_050708-1_XSA code. 

Use the R4 code from below. 

1) Turn on the player with no disc in the tray 
Wait till the unit is at the Samsung logo screen. 
2) Open then close the tray, wait to see the No-Disc Message in the top Left Corner 
3) Now press the REPEAT button on the remote, followed by a five digit code. 
In this case Repeat 76884 

Now try to get this to work as many times it gets, It needed to be done without delay. 
So if you don’t get it to work straight away don’t loose heart. 

4) When it works a 4 will appear in the top left corner 

5) Press 9 to make it regionless. 
6) Press Eject to OPEN to open the disc tray. 
7) Press Eject to CLOSE to close the disc tray. 

8) Power the unit off 

9) Now power the unit on again, it should now read all regions of DVD Disc. 

This is the list of region codes. 

R1 - 29334 
R2 - 57538 
R3 - 56732 
R4 - 76884 
R5 - 53814 
R6 - 24462 

Hope this helps. Erinc

American Blu ray dic not playing in my malaysian sony bdp -s370

BD media does have region codes. But, unlike current DVD players, the region codes for BD media use letters instead of numbers to indicate a particular zone or region where the discs can be played.

The BD region codes are as follows:

  • Region A: North America, South America, U.S. Territories, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia
  • Region B: Europe, Africa, Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.
  • Region C: Asia (except for Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia)
