You don't need to do anything. You can take a DVD from any region and it will play. Region Free is set in the PS3 software base.

How can i unlock region coding


You cannot unlock the Blu-Ray region of the PS3. You should try and get Blu-Ray discs that are not region locked in the future.

I have a PS3 80g. No warranty. Trying to repair myself. The disc drive wont take in discs. So I think I just need to replace the drive. But I need one that will be backwards compatible. I'm not sure how to...


http://www.llamma.com/PS3/ this site should provide some of the information you need. however, for a PS3 to be back compatable, it has to have had a PS2 built into it. changing the drive may not give it back compatability.

American DVDs unable to play for my PS3


At this time the region lock on ps3 only includes DVD and ps1-2 titles. Although some games will have the 80028F10 error. Most ps3 and blue ray will play without problems, my only suggestion being that if you are in the US, make sure you get a US ps3.

hope this helps.

PS3 80gb from Singapore will not play ps2 games Wrong region displayed


I,m pretty sure that the region settings on PS3s are factory set.
Your only option is to buy japanese games, or NTSJ.
I,d try to re-sell it back to someone in Singapore or Japan, and buy a UK Version.
