Question about JVC XV-511 DVD Player
ATTENTION Opening your player will void the warranty! Modification are at your own risk! No guarantee for function!
1. Remove the top cover. 2. Locate wire jumper B532 o the printed circuit board nearby the front panel, it can be found just underneath the connector linking this board with the one above. 3. Cut bridge B532. 4. Apply power, PW (Password) appears on the display. 5. Enter the code 5963 with the remote controller, PW OK will be displayed. 6. Switch the set off and on ... and it will be zonefree !!!
Important information It seems that JVC received some complaints from the software industry that these players were much too easy to modify and they had to change the design to prevent further 'multi-zoning'! All sets with a serial number starting with 134xxxxx or 144xxxxx will normally need a new PROM to make them a real multizone machine! Don't despair if you have one of the newer types because there's a hidden multizone 'backdoor' ! Yes, the above mentioned modification will still work after you plug in the power cord, at this moment the set will play all zones as long as you don't switch it off with the standby button, once this happens it will be back to zone 2 and you'll need to unplug/plug in the power cord again to get it back to multizone.
