After getting clarification from Fixya I can pass the links below to you to check yourself

Some players are harder than others to do this but you may want to
try here
or here
Comments:
Toshiba's and JVC's are the harder ones to do

I use a Phillips myself as it is not only cheaper but has much more going for it than many of the higher end units. i throw anything at it and it just plays

The older the unit that harder it is to do the region free thing with.
I let my EX have the panasonic (big grin)

If you cant find a fix then look at the codes available for cheaper brands and how easy it is to do it before you purchase one.

Just a thought.

How can I change the region settings on my Sony DAV DZ870W many thanks, Shane


When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Google for the programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.

I wish to unlock the region code so that i can play all regions


You can try either of these solutions as there does not appear to be a specific instruction for the DVD21:

Harman Kardon DVD1 / DVD5 / DVD10 / DVD20 / DVD50 / DVD1500 1. Player has to be in standby mode, no disc in tray
2. Press 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9, 2
3. Enter region (1-4)
4. Press OPEN, insert a disc

Note: Region is saved, you will have to set the RC every time you want to watch another DVD.

Harman Kardon DVD22 / DVD23 / DVD31 / DVD47 / HS100 HTS
1. Switch on
2. Press OSD
3. Select "Setup"
4. Enter 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9, 0 (the last number is the region)

See below region codes. It appears Harman Kardon only support 1-4, but it is worth trying 0 and seeing if it works.

First, see if you can find out what type of DVD it is PAL or NTSC. The difference (You need to keep this in mind when selecting your region):
NTSC: usually associated with the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Philippines, Taiwan, and other countries.
PAL usually associated with Europe, most of Africa, China, India, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, North Korea, and other countries (and Brazil, but using the refresh rate and resolution commonly associated with NTSC).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0. Informal term meaning "worldwide". Region 0 is not an official setting; discs that bear the region 0 symbol either have no flag set or have regions 1-6 flags set. Region 0 is commonly referred to as "Region Free", especially when talking about DVD and Blu-ray Disc players.
  1. United States, Canada, Bermuda, Caribbean, U.S. territories
  2. Europe, Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Greenland, French Overseas departments and territories
  3. Southeast Asia, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau
  4. South America, Central America, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, Papua New Guinea and much of Oceania
  5. Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Africa (except Egypt, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho), Central Asia, Mongolia, North Korea
  6. China
  7. Reserved for future use, MPAA-related DVDs and "media copies" of pre-releases in Asia
  8. International venues such as aircraft, cruise ships, spacecraft, etc.
ALLRegion ALL discs have all eight flags set, allowing the disc to be played in any location, on any player.

What is the country code for australia - lg dvd recorder


The geographical regions are as follows:
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.

The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs.

Hope this information is useful to you.

I have just bought a Toshiba SD590EKB dvd player and it will not play certain discs, it keeps on saying wrong regional code. How can I solve this problem?


Check the back of the dvd player and it will have a small sticker with a small picture of a globe (or earth) and it will have a number being one through to six, this will determine what region discs you can play in you machine. Ill list the regions and their codes, i hope this helps.

Region 1 - The U.S., U.S. territories and Canada.

Region 2 - Europe*, Japan, Middle East, Egypt, South Africa, Greenland.

Region 3 - Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong .
