Most have "hack codes" but yours is in a select group of a few that simply cant be done with a couple pushes of a button.
As far as I am aware the only way to get thesemachines to play Region 1 discs is to have them chipped. A variety of solutionsare available, and it needn't be expensive (typically £30 to £70) but youshould be aware that any internal modifications to your players wouldinvalidate the warranty. Have a look at the following web sites for moreinformation:http://www.techtronics.com/uk/shop/50-000-dvd.html
I know you were looking for a free solution you could do in a matter of seconds and sorry it didnt work out that way. Regardless, I hope I pointed you in the right direction and feel free to ask if you have any more question.

You need to make sure that you do the #8243 step
To change your DVD region settings try the following:
Turn on player with no disk inserted
Press "Open/Close" on the remote control
Press "259″ on the remote control
After enter the code 13893108520 again on the HOME Screen and the player will show region "0"
Now the buttons on the front of the player do not work anymore.... You will need to go to SETUP and click on RESET FACTORY SETTINGS....
Wait until the player restarts and now you can play all DVD regions
