I WANT TO CONVERT MY TOSHIBA SD501 KB DVD PLAYER INTO A MULTI-REGION PLAYER. HOW CAN I ACCOMPLISH THIS TASK?


Hi,
On most of the DVD players regional set up cannot be changed.However just for trying; type your players brand and model number into goggle along with 'hack code' and you should be able to find some codes to change the region code on your player.You need to find the correct 'Hack' for your model.
Google 'DVD Hacks', there are many sites out there that will provide the details.
It generally consists of pressing a secret sequence of buttons on the remote.
Like holding the mute button down and simultaneously pressing 6758, they are all different.
It then enters a special mode where you can change the DVD region or make it region free.
In my experience the major brands like Sony, Sharp, JVC, Toshiba,Panasonic etc are harder to change, I guess the major players do not want copyright issues.
The cheaper DVD players as unbranded, or never heard of, are better.They are all "MULTI REGION " or "region free "players play any region dvd.

additional info for DVD regions:
DVD region codes are a digital-rights management technique
designed to allow film distributors to control aspects of a release, including
content, release date, and price, according to the region.DVD video discs may be
encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can
be played.

The American DVD Copy Control Association in California requires that DVD-player
manufacturers incorporate the regional-playback control (RPC) system - according
to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, an Australian government
agency.

There are six different official regions and two informal variations.[citation
needed] DVDs may use one code, a combination of codes (Multi-Region), most
codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). The commercial DVD player
specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs
encoded for a different region; however, region-free DVD players are also
commercially available.

"wrong region" on dvd player


According to the Wikipedia, "DVD region codes are a DRM technique designed to allow motion picture studios to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and price, according to the region. DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played.

The DVD Copy Control Association in California, USA, requires that DVD player manufacturers incorporate the Regional Playback Control (RPC) system - according to the Australian government's anti-monopoly watchdog, the ACCC. It is therefore this US Association that is responsible for the RPC system that effectively divides the world into six regions for the purposes of controlling and manipulating distribution within the global DVD market.

There are six different official regions and two informal variations. DVD discs may use one code, a combination of codes (Multi-Region), most codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region; however, region-free DVD players are also commercially available.In addition, many DVD players can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

A brand new DVD player allows you to play DVDs from different regions only five times, locking to the last region watched after these five times. So, you might have used your five region-change permissions and your DVD player is now locked to a different one from that of the DVD you want to watch (even thou you might have watched normally before).

There are some softwares like "DVD Region+CSS Free" from dvdidle.com or "CloneDVD 2" from Slysoft.com that allow you to back up your DVDs without the annoying region code. There are also sites like www.rpc1.org and www.dvdexploder.com that provide firmware or remote control codes to unlock the region of your DVD player.

Hope this information helps you understand why your DVD player is behaving like that and how to bypass that pitfall.

My Panasonic blu ray player DMPBD 30 does not play region B blu ray discs. How do I unlock the region codes?


Hi

The region codes or unlock hack for this model is not available, if you want to make it region free then you'll need a universal remote like a pronto remote or a One for all remote and then would need to enter the HEX codes to make it region free. It can't be done with the factory supplied remote.

You can buy a pronto remote from this link---

Please ask for any clarifications and accept this solution if found helpful.

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.
