    The guy in the shop i bought it from is certain there are codes that can be entered in through the remote control .. I have bought stuff from this guy before and he knows his equipment so I tend to believe if he says it is possible I still have hope to believe those codes exist .. if its hardware then it can be bypassed .. anything is possible :-)

    hey .. thanks for the reply .. how exactly do u enter the numbers .. do u have to go to the menu screen or ??? and where will it show u that the zones have been changed .. are there only 2 zones to change ?? thanks ..

  • irish72 Jul 14, 2009

    if you know the codes and how to use then please reply .. its no use just saying enter a number .. there has to be a process in how u do it .. pointing the remote and hitting several numbers will do nothing .. unless u actually do know how it works and if it can be done .. If you have not seen this DVD player or its remote then how can u explain what needs to be done .. ..

    maybe its just me not getting this .. if i have the player on and just press those buttons i see nothing happening .. do i have to hit the ok button to enter ?? does the screen have to be on the tv for it to show me ..?? where is it going to show me the region change ?? thanks

Hi,
With no disc in the tray, keying in 973522 via the remote should change the region code to Blu-ray B, then try a different region disk, if the player changed to region B, you should get a region mismatch error. To set it back to Region A, key in 973511 (with no disc in the tray) would set it back to region A, and it should also set itself back to region A when you power it off."

The code 973511 (with no disc in the tray) will return it back to region A.



Good luck.

There are several instances where you can enter the codes and I have noticed that it is different per Sherwood model. I am not sure when you can do it in your particular model but you can start entering the codes when you are at the following states:

  • "No Disc" is displayed
  • when the tray is opened

Hello there, I am very familiar with this Sherwood Blu Ray player and unfortunately it is impossible to unlock the region on the player. It is locked at a hardware level and is physically impossible to unlock. There aren't a ton of blu ray players on the market that are region free actually. Yours is definitely not one of them.

So sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it is definitely not possible.

Thanks for your time,

Tim

    I know of the remote codes that the guy referred to, and they do exist for many models, however yours is not one of them. Trust me, I do this all day long, and have done thousands upon thousands of dvd and blu ray players. This sherwood model specifically blocks it. The person you are referring to was speaking in generalities, unless he looked in a service manual for the machine then there is no way he could just know off the top of his head that they exist for this device.

    Also, your comment about hardware lockdown being "breakable", well really it's not. If anything it's much easier to bypass a software lockdown, you could buy a chip that circumvents it in that case, but this is not that scenario.

    I am so sorry to be the one that has to inform you of this, but really it's not possible. If you bought it from this guy with the idea in mind that you were going to unlock it, I would return it for false advertisement, or just general dissatisfaction. Next time have him verify in person what the remote code is, I guarantee there isn't one for this model.

    Thanks,

    Tim
