I don't know if you still need this fix, but all you need to do is just change the country from USA to China under the setup menu.  Go to preference menu and then region.  There you will see a list of countries to change it to.  I tried it with Taiwan first but that failed but when I set the region to China I was able to play PAL DVDs like a champ.  The player didn't recognise it until the change, but there was no problem with playback afterward.

I am in Australia and have just bought a DMR BW500. I have a dvd from Japan which won't work on it and I have been told that if I unlock the region code, then it will work. So how do I unlock the region...

The following works on a region 4 player. With no disc in the player and the drawer closed, press stop, stop, setup, then 3,8,8,8,3 and the desired region code, (0 for multiregion). Nothing will appear on screen. Then switch the player off and back on. It should now play discs for any region
