You just change your Dvd player region to region "0" (Zero.)
You can do this by useing your remotr control to the settings/ similer options.

Unlock region sony sr170


When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China

Most DVD players allow one change. So if you buy a region 1 player and live in region 3 you can change the region to 3. But if you return to region 1 you can't switch back.
If you have a computer and a toaster to burn your DVD's, there are program m's that can rip a DVD to a folder on your computer and then recode the files to a DVD that has no region.
If you have lots of DVD's it would be wiser to rip the DVD to the PC, remove the region code and put the content on a media player.
In a few years you can't buy DVD's. Perhaps some blue ray DVD with 4K or 8K HD will exist for a while, but ???

I wish to unlock the region code so that i can play all regions


You can try either of these solutions as there does not appear to be a specific instruction for the DVD21:

Harman Kardon DVD1 / DVD5 / DVD10 / DVD20 / DVD50 / DVD1500 1. Player has to be in standby mode, no disc in tray
2. Press 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9, 2
3. Enter region (1-4)
4. Press OPEN, insert a disc

Note: Region is saved, you will have to set the RC every time you want to watch another DVD.

Harman Kardon DVD22 / DVD23 / DVD31 / DVD47 / HS100 HTS
1. Switch on
2. Press OSD
3. Select "Setup"
4. Enter 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9, 0 (the last number is the region)

See below region codes. It appears Harman Kardon only support 1-4, but it is worth trying 0 and seeing if it works.

First, see if you can find out what type of DVD it is PAL or NTSC. The difference (You need to keep this in mind when selecting your region):
NTSC: usually associated with the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Philippines, Taiwan, and other countries.
PAL usually associated with Europe, most of Africa, China, India, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, North Korea, and other countries (and Brazil, but using the refresh rate and resolution commonly associated with NTSC).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0. Informal term meaning "worldwide". Region 0 is not an official setting; discs that bear the region 0 symbol either have no flag set or have regions 1-6 flags set. Region 0 is commonly referred to as "Region Free", especially when talking about DVD and Blu-ray Disc players.
  1. United States, Canada, Bermuda, Caribbean, U.S. territories
  2. Europe, Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Greenland, French Overseas departments and territories
  3. Southeast Asia, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau
  4. South America, Central America, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, Papua New Guinea and much of Oceania
  5. Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Africa (except Egypt, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho), Central Asia, Mongolia, North Korea
  6. China
  7. Reserved for future use, MPAA-related DVDs and "media copies" of pre-releases in Asia
  8. International venues such as aircraft, cruise ships, spacecraft, etc.
ALLRegion ALL discs have all eight flags set, allowing the disc to be played in any location, on any player.

Good Luck.

I have just bought a Toshiba SD590EKB dvd player and it will not play certain discs, it keeps on saying wrong regional code. How can I solve this problem?


Check the back of the dvd player and it will have a small sticker with a small picture of a globe (or earth) and it will have a number being one through to six, this will determine what region discs you can play in you machine. Ill list the regions and their codes, i hope this helps.

Region 1 - The U.S., U.S. territories and Canada.

Region 2 - Europe*, Japan, Middle East, Egypt, South Africa, Greenland.

Region 3 - Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong .

Region 4 - Mexico, South America, Central America, Australia, New Zealand, Pacific. Islands, Caribbean

Region 5 - Russia (former USSR), Eastern Europe, India, most of Africa, North Korea, Mongolia

Region 6 - China

Good luck.
