    1: Turn on the 610 from the front panel, Do NOT open the disc tray

    2: On the 610 Remote, press the blue button, then play then 159, then 121212005255, then play then standby.

    3: Enjoy multiregion viewing!



    Please note, the buttons must be pressed quickly or the hack will not work.

    You should see the numbers 121212005255 on the front panel display briefly if the hack has been input correctly.



    (Many Thanks to Vdemon for submitting the original hack!)



    You have to type in codes as described but mightily quick! Two
    hands, numbers quick, numbers quick, and don't spend any time looking
    at the display. The more times you do it, the quicker you get and
    eventually you can press them fast enough and if you can quickly look
    at the display the long line of digits DO display.



    Advice is keep going and it will work.


    if you have a PDA, just
    dowmload a remote control software that supports macros (a pretty good
    one for PPC is Remote control 2 -> http://www.wincesoft.de/index.html). The trial version is enough to apply the hack (I did it this way myself).

    I can guarantee that it's a lot easier this way

    try this
    With no disc in player:



    On the remote control:



    Press Setup



    Press >>



    Press <<



    Press >>|



    Press |<<

    Should now display a code above the language selection



    Press the RIGHT arrow until the end figure is 255



    Press ENTER



    Press Setup to finish



    Switch off for a few seconds then switch on for region free.

REGION 1,DVD


Region 1 dvds are usually USA/Canada dvds and will play on any dvd purchased in those countries. You didn't state your location so I don't know where you are. Google your location for dvd region to make sure.

Changing dvd region codes


You can't change the DVD coding. That part is how the DVD is recorded. However, your Mac will play DVDs from another region. It just typically defaults to one region. I have deleted the DVD player software (and preferences files) before and reloaded it to play DVDs from another region. If you plan to regularly play DVDs from multiple regions, you might want to look for special DVD software that will read DVDs from multiple regions.

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.

When I inserted a disc on my home Sony DVD player my screen said" Playback prohibited due to area restrictions". It does play, however, on my office computer DVD player. Thanks, Natalie


DVDs are encoded to a particular region and will only play on dvd players that are encoded to accept that region. Usually a computer dvd reader is region free meaning that it can play DVDs from any region without a problem. For example the USA is region 1 and Austrailia is region 5. A disc made for Australia (region 5) will not play in a standard USA player (region 1). see this link on Wikipedia for more information HERE . The good news is that sometimes you can set up your DVD player to accept discs from any region. If you are interested let me know the exact model of your DVD player and I will look it up. Please rate me well if this has helped.
