Hi, you are partly correct, your region 1 player is also in NTSC format, other regions are in PAL format...... So even if you converted your player to multi region or bought a multi region player it still would not play a PAL disk which the Chinese disks would be! The only way you could do this is to buy a multi region PAL/NTSC format DVD player.
Hi Elizabeth. Not all DVD players are able to be made "multi region". The model numbers of DVD players that are multi region have the same model number as a "home" region player. There is no difference in the appearance of the unit. If it was sold to you by a retailer on the understanding that it could be made a multi region, then I suggest you call them ask ask for the code. Quite often, there is a procedure to follow when converting a DVD player to multi region - along the lines of - place the non region disk in the tray and press buttons X, X and X. I know this doesn't answer your question but I hope it gives you an explanation!
You can not fix this, DVDs are coded in such a way that a for instance a DVD sold in the European market can't be played on a DVD player sold in the USA. You can buy region free DVD players, but they are not sold at the local electronics stores, they are available on eBay I'm told.
Depends how the region code hack was performed.
It could be a additional chip was used and either chip has failed or wire come off.
You could try unplugging player from mains for a few minutes and try again.
Is it still under warranty from where you purchased it ? If so you may have to return it.
You should contact the manufacture support to see if they have a version of firmware you can install in to the player to re-program it for the UK standard.
In most cases you will have to go out and buy a player that was originaly designed for the region where you are. You can also shop around to see if it is possible to have a multi-region player. In some locations these are legal to be sold.
for 'all' LG dvd players to break coding follow these steps. it worked for me, i was told it works for all LGs... step 1- POWER ON "NO DISC" appears on screen; step 2- press PAUSE, 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9; step 3- "CODE_ _" appears on screen; step 4- 0, PAUSE, then POWER OFF!!! that's it, good luck guys! hope it works
2. Press the '0' key on the remote three times, waiting about one second between key presses. The 'Region Test' screen will appear on the TV. If you don't get this screen, then power off/power on again and start over.
3. If the Region Test screen appears, enter '0' for all-regions.
