As I'm sure you know, DVDs are coded to a region of the world.
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Resevered for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0,9 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide




So here we go..

  1. Power on
  2. Open tray
  3. Push the info on remote once (with supplied remote) You will see numbers.
  4. Press 9 for multi-region. keep trying until you see the number 9 appear in upper left corner
  5. Power off
  6. Power on
Best of luck.

SOURCE: Changing region on a DVD player

You did not specify what kind of DVD player this is? Since you said player, and not drive, then I will assume this is a dvd player you hook up to your TV, not install in a computer.

Simple answer, you can not change the region code on a DVD player, unless there is a known hack listed on a website.

Therefore, your only option, is get a region free dvd player. They are cheap and easy to get on amazon.

here is one for $30:

Unlock the dvd code


DVD REGION FREE & BLUE-RAY REGION FREE
To changethe Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware -Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVDdrive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have beenmade.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmwareto make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrongfirmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece ofsoftware (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region andPasskey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There areseveral available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From:-

DVD region code


Generally, your Pioneer DVD 120K player can play any DVDs from your region. As you encounter the situation that can not play the DVD, i guess your DVD from other region. To change the region code of DVD is High-risk operation, it only can be changed less than 5 time, and you are not to recommended to do that. If only for one or several DVD Discs, just remove the DVD region code via a DVD ripper. Of course, if you bought the DVD player from other region, you can change the region code of DVD player permanently.

Cant play a region 1 dvd


The DVD and *and* the DVD player both have a region code embedded in each. A map of the regions used appears below:

steve_con_2.gif

Regions 0, 7, 8 & 9 do not appear as they represent "No Region Coding" "Unused" "Cruise Lines" and "Region Free" respectively.

A DVD player will only play a matching region code DVD, or the player OR DVD have one (or more) 0, 7, 8, or 9 region codes imbedded. You'll not be able to change the DVD code, but you *might* be able to change the region code of your player. Computer DVD players can sometimes be flashed to a new region more readily than the entertainment system DVD players, but it relies solely on the manufacturer and model of the player. Some require file be downloaded and run, while others require a DVD or CD be created and played with a specific file saved on it. Here's a link to results that discuss how to change the region code for DVD players. You'll need to know at the very least the manufacturer and model number of you player to begin.

I hope this helps and good luck! If you found this helpful, please rate my reply 4 "thumbs up". Thanks!

Im wondering if anyone know how to turn off the region zone for a Sony DVP-FX750. It was purchased in america with a zone 1 & we have zone 4 in Australia. I've tried to burn a DVD to play, but...


This question is one of my most frequent on FixYa.

There is no "region-free" or "region 0" setting for any DVD player/recorder. Only DVD media can be region free. Every single offer to set a player or recorder to region free that I am familiar with has been a scam. The reason for this is to prevent DVD piracy.

Most DVD players and recorders (SONY included) have provisions for making a maximum of THREE changes to their region code. A fourth attempt at changing the region code will result in the player/recorder being turned into a paperweight.

Bkhopkins- in your case, you will be able to change your region code from region 1 (USA) to region 4 (AUS). Doing so will leave your player with 2 more changes, maximum. Check your manual for the procedure and the exact number of changes you are allowed. Please be aware that after you change to Region 4, any Region 1 DVD's will not be viewable unless you switch back, which will use another of your three changes.

You have an alternative to salvage your DVD's by downloading a program called DVD Shrink. This program is capable of removing the region code from your DVDs and saving them as region-free at the sacrifice of some quality. You will at least the be able to view your US DVD's without sacrificing a region code change on your player.

Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

I need to unlock a Toshiba DVD player/VCR Combo SDV395 to view DVDs' purchased in Francs


You can change the Region Code of you DVD player but be aware that you have a limited number of changes, then the DVD player will be stuck to a certain region.
Search in the Options menu and change the region code to one printed on the french dvd case. To watch DVDs from your region again you have to change the region once more. Watch for changes left.

Message "wrong Region" appears in my Sony DVD -


DVD region is an anti-piracy method to block DVDs from other countrys to be played on a region where that DVD isn't available for selling. You still can watch that DVD by changing the DVD Player region code from options but be aware that you have a limited number of changes, after changes reach 0 you cannot change DVD region code anymore and your DVD player will be stucked to a certain region that you selected.

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.
