Question about Samsung DVD-V90K Multisystem DVD/VCR

Samsung DVD-P171 Player

We cannot play dvd's as it says it is regional coded. We received the stand alone dvd player instruction sheet showing us how to change to multizone setting. After several attempts we could not decode the original setting. The next suggestion on the spec sheet says go on line to samsung.com/au/support/productsupport/download/index.aspx
to download the firmware update file for this model so we could copy the instruction for changing to multizone on disc and it did not list the specific dvd player we have bought. Is this possible to change and how do we do it?

I followed the instructions without updating the firmware and it worked for me. Hope this helps.

How to change region codes from only 4 to 2 & 4


1) Turn on the player with no disc in the tray
2) Press the Open/Close button to open the tray
3) Press the info button, the firmware version shows up (mine was 080220.13.B.1080PXKEG)
4) After the version info disappears, close the tray again by pressing the Open/Close button
5) At this point, it will show "no disc" at the top. Press the Info button again, and this will disappear.
6) Now type the code that applies for your region (R4 is 76884). A '4' will briefly show up at the top left corner
7) Now press 9, and 9 will show up in the top left corner
8) Power off the player, and turn it on again. You'll have a multi region player

Enjoy

Our Sony DVD player will not playimported DVDs from the UStates


1) those DVDs are coded in Region 1(Canada, United States; U.S. territories; Bermuda)
you will have to change the region code on the dvd-rom to region 1

2) if you bought the stand alone DVD player in the U.S. it will play region 1 dvds and nothing else(some dvd players will play region code 1-6)

3) to change the code in windows vista you'll have to go under the drive property's in the device manager go to the dvd region tab and set it to what ever the number on the back of the dvd is WARNING you only get 4 changes before the drive locks you out permanently then your stuck with what ever number you put in on the 4th try you've been warned

windows xp/2000/98/me
you'll have to change the region code from your software player again your limited on how many times you can change the region code before you have to reinstall the dvd player software

Won't play Canadian dvds


It is illegal to change the region code. I will not accept liability, but if you enter the phrase, "change dvd region code philips" on the YouTube website, some jokesters have some good videos which will show you how to do it. Two things they do not tell you:
1) It is illegal
2) It will only work 3 times, and then your player will be locked into whatever region code you set it to

You would really need a Multizone DVD player to do what you want to do legally (Philips does not currently make any of these)
