Making my Samsung HD870 a multi-regional Player

I have scoured the internet to find the unlock code for the above player and while I have found several, none of the codes posted work. Now I think it is because of the firmware I have installed which is


I have found mention of downgrading ones firmware by loading an ISO file after buring it to disc. I have tried this also, but the DVD does not recognise the CD when it is it inserted into the player.

Any assistance you can offer me to unlock this player would be greatly appreciated. My email address is....

Thanks in advance & Happy New Year

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.

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.

Samsung region dvd problem

What I am saying is very generic, and does not apply to any one type of DVD player.

Apparently, for many models the region codes can only be changed a number of times, and then the unit locks. This is how most of these units are designed. It is probably locked to the last code used. The user instructions will normaly give an indication to the number of changes allowed.

When the unit is locked, it cannot be changed. The locked code is burned in to the EPROM of the DVD player.

You need a true multi region DVD machine. This would be a player that will not ever lock. There are some on the market. Carefully research this spec before making your purchase.

There are some models that will lock, but it is possible to patch them to not lock. The patching has to be done before the unit does get locked. You would have to explore the net to find this information.

This works to change region code 5.
This is how it works.
1)Power on player.
2)Ensure that there is no DVD inside the player.
3)The tray should be closed.
4)Press "Subtitle" on the remote control.
5)Press 53814 for region 5 (For other regions see any of the other cracks)
6)The region code 5 will be displayed on the left top corner of your screen.
7)Now press 9. A 9 will be displayed on the top left corner of the screen.
8)Press Subtitle on the remote again
9)Power off the player.
10)Power it on again and you are region independent!!
Worked for me.
