Ran out of region changes for Acer Aspire 5920G laptop DVD drive, stuck on region 1, would like to change it to multi-regional, can you help tell me how?

  1. Look at your DVD player and find the name of the company that produced it. Then, find the product number. For example: a DVD 622 model from Phillips.

  2. Go to a website such as to find DVD hack codes. The players will often be listed by the company name first and model number second. If you can't locate your DVD player on the website, type the model number and the company into a search engine to see if any other sites have the hack there.

  3. Follow the steps on the website. Here are the steps for the Phillips DVD 622:
    1. Hold the stop button on the remote until the disc tray opens.
    2. Press the numbers 2812 on your remote to access the region menu.
    3. Press the OK button to set the region code to 9.
    4. Turn the player off and wait several minutes.

  4. Test your DVD player with a previously unplayable DVD. If it doesn't work, check the web to see if there are any other codes listed for your player.

Laptop dvd player stuck on region 1 need 4 for

Try changing the region by right clicking your DVD drive in explorer and select properties, go to hardware tab, select your DVD brand and type, click properties, go to DVD region, and change the region.. Just remember, any DVD only allowed to change the region for about 4 times, after that, you can't change the region anymore..

PHILIPS DVD player 616K, how to change region or get into right region. my player was working OK. Suddenly it stopped functioning and showed/diplayed '' wrong region'' on the TV screen.

Changing the region code for DVD616K :

2. Use the remote control to input digital key '1', '1', '1', '0' in that order

if that dont work go 1, 1 1, 1 in that
Kindly leave a few seconds between each entry, the microprocessor is slow
with these entries.

6. The region setting will be saved in the FLASH memory.
7. Press OPEN/CLOSE again, the DVD player will return to normal operation.

Unlock dvd zones

The region code can only be changed 4 times and it locks on the 4th change.
There may be a firmware upgrade that make your DVD region free, but if you make a mistake or install the wrong firmware upgrade then the DVD will be a piece of junk. You will need to Google search for DVD firmware upgrades for your model DVD.
The best way to view DVDs from other regions is to install a piece of software that defeats the region code. I use a program called DVD-RegionFree from
There are possibly other programs available, again Google search for them.

Region code

I assume you are referring to the DVD drive region code in your Toshiba laptop.

1. Determine the exact make and model of the drive.

2. Check the mfr's. website for reset instructions.

3. Google - DVD REGION UNLOCK CODE. You will find lots of help there.

Good luck
