How do you unlock region code on Samsung BD-H6500 smart blue- ray player

The hack for this 3D Blu Ray player is the same as for previous models.

1. Make sure NO disc or usb stick is inserted into the player.
2. Turn on your your blu ray player.
3. When the main menu appears, press the REPEAT button followed by the region code your player is currently locked to - depending on which country
you are in (eg: in Australia press "REPEAT 7 6 8 8 4".
4. In the top right corner you will see your region code flash (eg: 4 for Australia).
5. Press 9.
6. Turn off and on and your BD-E6500 is now region free.

How this differs from the opening post is no need to open and close the disc tray.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

So, after pressing REPEAT please enter one of the following codes the matches your current region lock:

1 - 2 9 3 3 4 (US)
2 - 5 7 5 3 8 (Europe)
3 - 5 6 7 3 2 (South East Asia)
4 - 7 6 8 8 4 (Australia / South America)
5 - 5 3 8 1 4 (India, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Africa)
6 - 2 4 4 6 2 (China)

9 - Region Free

Then press '9' and your player is region free.

I have the 5083 dvd player, but it only seems to play region 2 dvds. I've tried going through the menus, but it asks for a country code. The codes are two letters A-Z. I'm assuming that there's...

The Country Code is just related to the Subtitles etc and nothing to do with the Region.
Most DVD Players/Recorders are set to Play the Region of DVD from the Country they were purchased from. Only some are Region Free (will play DVDs from any Country) when purchased.

Some DVD Players/Recorders can be changed to Region Free by simply entering a code on the Remotes handset or by following instructions to enter a Service Menu and change it their.

Unfortunately yours can only be changed by updating the Firwmare which is a risky and difficult process even if you know what you're doing. I wouldn't advise anyone to try it without previous experience as you could render your DVD Player/Recorder useless.

Region unlock a Sony DVP-SR500H

Ok here's what I've figured out for Sony dvp sr500h...

To get to the hidden menu, you need to start with the DVD player power OFF
then hit
POWER (to turn the dvd player on)

and you should now see the hidden menu

then go to option 2
then option 4

then this is as far as I can enter codes here but none I've tried have worked....

the ones I've tried so far are 2812, 34570, and 12450

if anyone can figure out the correct code please post here.

You need to convert your machine to an all-region player. The following hack works for Diamond Vision models 803 and 807 - there's a good chance it will work for the 809 provided they've used the same firmware for this model.

The region-free hack works as follows:

1.) Turn on the power and wait until the 'NO DISC' message appears, then press OPEN/CLOSE on the unit itself to open the door of the DVD player

2.) On the remote control, press SETUP. A menu will appear onscreen.

3.) Enter the following number sequence via remote: 1 3 8 9

4.) A different menu will appear. Your cursor should now be sitting in a box with the current region displayed. Use the UP and DOWN arrow keys on the remote control to display a specific region's numerical code, or select '0' (this is the number zero - not the letter o ... this is the region-free setting).

5.) Press ENTER and then SETUP to exit.

6.) Your DVD player will now play DVDs from all other regions. The code only has to be entered once. Powering down will not cause the Diamond Vision to lose its region-free setting. An added plus: it automatically senses PAL/NTSC signals but it will output to an NTSC tv set.
