Making my Samsung HD870 a multi-regional Player

This player is known for not being able to be downgraded. The player needs to see a .bin file and there is remote code to input to flash it.

Unlock code needed for Sony DVP FX-970

May I ask what code you are looking for. If it is a code to unlock the region to make it region free there is no code out yet. Also it is almost imposable to unlock portable DVD players.

The dvd player says "incorrect

The DVD player is region locked and will only play DVDs from a particular region. The cheap DVDs are probably region 0 and so will work on any DVD player. You can scour the internet for a code hack to change the region (I've had a quick look and not found anything).

Region code hack posted by vassmanov, March 23 2009:
Press the Pause button on your remote control. Using your remote control enter the code 3,1,4,1,5 and 9, At this point, a blue screen displays showing that you are in 'region altering mode'. Press the 0 button on your remote control for Region free. Press the Pause button on your remote control. Power off your player and wait a few seconds. Power on your player and your ready to go!

It worked for me (after a few false starts)

Multi region code for GPX PDL 705 portable DVD player

I hope this helps^^ try it and gimme a shout!

Turn on power.
Open lid.
Push 9 7 3 5 from the remote.
Select 0 using arrow keys.
Exit Setup.

The one above did work me, only that after one turns on the player, enter in the 9735 with the remote and press 'enter', you can choose between making your player region-free or a different region in addition to R1. Select the desired region unlock and press 'enter'.

Make sure you check the bottom of the DVD player to see if it was manufactured in the first quarter of 2007, that might factor in whether the code can work or not.
