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
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?

Please go to , type in the details of your dvd player, there will be several region code hacks ,follow the instructions and this should work for you, basically you are needing to make your dvd player a multiregion player. all dvd players are multi region at time of manufacture, but they are code set for the county that they are shipped to, hopefully this should help. you can also go on to google type in Hack for whaterver your dvd player is and you will get a region code there.

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

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)

Incorrect region codde

This is for DVP31XXX series i hope it works all on DVP31 series. It has been tested on DVP3146K /51 and it has been worked...

1. Make sure there is no disc in the player.
2. Turn power off and on again.
3. Open the tray.
4. On the remote, hit 9879 and then 0. This changes unit to Region 0, meaning it'll play all regions.
5. Hit OK on the remote.

Good Luck Guys!
