LG RH1999H DVD HDD Recorder

I have purchased the above item in Thailand and I have many DVDs from the UK and they will not play on this DVD player as it is the wrong region code for the player.  I had a Sony DVD player prior to this and the shop did a small either a software or a hardware chane to the player and it played DVDs from any region just like the DVD playes in computers.   Is there a fix for this LG player and if so where can I get it or can I do it myself.  I am an electronics engineer.

LG RH265 does not read DVDs

Purchase a DVD cleaning kit and follow the instructions, this will remove any dirt from the laser pickup lens, and hopefully get it up and running. If this fails, the only other option is have the whole laser assembly replaced, "expensive" or replace the entire unit.

My DVD recorder won't play my CDs

Recently purchased a unit... You can imagine the joy when I found in Manual: Audio discs can only play if in .mpg or .wma formats! Yes, all the bells and whistles except the most basic of functions such as all common audio formats. Other portable $99 dvd player works with them.
