Region Hack for Samsung SH853M

Here is the hack for all region's players. It changes regions and unlocks the ability to use Hi-Def modes (720p,1080i etc) through Component connections - some regions ship with this disabled!

Power on player with no disc in tray.

1. Press the Repeat button on your remote control
Don't confuse with the Repeat A-B button

2.If your player was purchased in Region 1:
Press the buttons 2, 9, 3, 3 and 4 on your remote control, in order one at a time
If it was purchased in Region 2:
Press the buttons 5, 7, 5, 3 and 8 on your remote control, in order one at a time
For Region 3 players:
Press the buttons 5, 6, 7, 3 and 2 on your remote control, in order one at a time
For Region 4 players:
Press the buttons 7, 6, 8, 8 and 4 on your remote control, in order one at a time
For Region 5 players:
Press the buttons 5, 3, 8, 1 and 4 on your remote control, in order one at a time
For Region 6 players:
Press the buttons 2, 4, 4, 6 and 2 on your remote control, in order one at a time

3. The numbers 01 or similar current region code will be displayed on the top left of your onscreen display

4. Press 9 for multi-region playback or the button on your remote control for your region eg. 2 for region 2.

NB: The above step is time sensitive and needs to be performed quickly.

5. Open your DISC tray and leave open for 15 secs.

6. After 15 seconds have elapsed, power off your player and the DISC tray will be closed and player shut off.

7. Power on player and it is now set to the new region code you chose in step 4 above

Samsung DVD SH853M Freeview/HDD/DVR. Recorded list - cannot access

The Manual fro this machine is typically vague on the minutae of setting up and performing various functions.

Apparantly the 'standby button' on the handset should be in the 'off' position not the 'on'.

The logic of the layman can seee it as the opposite. This does work..... and thank you for your patience.

Make sure you are not using DVD+R dics - the player won't play these. It is OK with DVD-R.
