Urn power off on front panel (not remote)

Turn power on on from front of DVD player (not remote)

Immediately open tray

enter 9735 from remote control
(you may have to attempt this several times as timing seems to be important, but may not be necessary to power off and on again with each attempt)
If you can not enter in the hidden menu after 5 attempts repeat from first step again by powering off unit. If you till have no success please see comment at bottom

Hidden menu appears

on remote use arrow down to region

use arrow right to select region code on right side

use arrow up to go up to region 1 , then one more arrow up and no region will be highlighted. (line above region 1 MAY be highlighted

Hit enter on remote

Close door, hack is complete

Note: This player will play back PAL or NTSC DVDs and output automatically PAL or NTSC
or can be forced to PAL or NTSC. I will support DIVx up to 1024x576 with tested Bitrates up to 2200kbp via the USB port. player seems to skip on such videos paying from CR media.

This player comes in various flavors. If above code does not work after several tries, repeat procedure with codes below in the following order
