SOURCE: Sony DVP-NS57P all region

Try this,
1) Plug the DVD Power Cord to the wall jack, but DO NOT Turn On the player;
2) With the Remote Control, press: Display, Top Menu, Clear and Power;
3) It will enter in the Service Mode;
4) Choose option 2 and then 4;
5) It will ask for an Input Code and Current Code (its 5 spaces), press 1245 and then Zero;
6) Leave all Zero erasing 1245, and on the bottom field all Zero too, then press Enter;
7) So the DVD Display will show a Zero (all Region-Free),     then press Power to Turn Off.

SOURCE: cannot unlock sony RMT-D197A dvd player so that it

That, as the name clearly says, it's an remote number - ReMoTe . We need the actual model number of the player (on a sticker at the back of the player) and, if possible, the firmware version - it will be in the menu.
But i must warn you - any procedure you apply to the player will only make it region free (if possible), it will not make it play PAL encoded movies. That can be done only by changing / upgrading the firmware and a lot of models are region specific: they were designed to work on a specific region so no PAL support was ever in their firmwares.

Why ask me my DVD Playback prohibited by area limitations ??? Pls help me now I wane watch movie thanks


Most DVD players are region-locked, meaning they will only play disks encoded in the location they are from, or disks without region-specific encoding. For example, if I bought a DVD player in Europe and tried to play a disc from the United States, it would not play. Unfortunately, in order to get past the "area limitations" you will either have to buy a DVD encoded in the same format as your DVD player, or set the player to a different region code (which often will lock the player after a certain number of times).

Introduction

The DVD Upgrade is an advanced modification to your DVD player, which adds extra features and enables you to get more from your machine. The upgrade supplements the DVD player and in no way harms the playback quality or removes any performance features of the machine.

Players Supported

The following DVD players are supported by this version of the DVD Upgrade:

 Sony DAV-C700
 Sony DAV-S400
 Sony DAV-S500
 Sony DAV-S800
 Sony CMT-S9D

Macrovision & CGMS disable

All DVD players have a system called Macrovision built in to the player, which is designed to stop the copying of DVD discs to video. However, this system can have adverse affects on some projectors. For this reason the DVD MOD Upgrade disables Macrovision to solve any problems.

Remote control command Function

[1] [ENTER] Region 1

DVD region codes are a digital-rights management technique designed to allow film distributors to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and price, according to the region.DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played.

The American DVD Copy Control Association in California requires that DVD-player manufacturers incorporate the regional-playback control (RPC) system - according to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, an Australian government agency.[1]

There are six different official regions and two informal variations.[citation needed] DVDs may use one code, a combination of codes (Multi-Region), most codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region; however, region-free DVD players are also commercially available.[2] In addition, many DVD players can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs.[3]

Hack to make region-free


You just need to google for its codes to be applied on remote control. No DVD player manufacturer can sell DVD players region free out of the box as they are prohibited from doing so to avoid DVDs of one region from playing in another region. Same applies to DVD playback software or DVD ROM Drives, but this strategy has failed as once you buy any of this product, it can be made region free and any DVD you buy anywhere in world, you can play it.

hope that helped

When I inserted a disc on my home Sony DVD player my screen said" Playback prohibited due to area restrictions". It does play, however, on my office computer DVD player. Thanks, Natalie


DVDs are encoded to a particular region and will only play on dvd players that are encoded to accept that region. Usually a computer dvd reader is region free meaning that it can play DVDs from any region without a problem. For example the USA is region 1 and Austrailia is region 5. A disc made for Australia (region 5) will not play in a standard USA player (region 1). see this link on Wikipedia for more information HERE . The good news is that sometimes you can set up your DVD player to accept discs from any region. If you are interested let me know the exact model of your DVD player and I will look it up. Please rate me well if this has helped.
