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.
With some products such as dvd players they are each preset with these codes for the areas where they will be sold. Some you cannot change. This is to protect copyrights. It took some time for me to find this but here it is in a nut shell. For you to view a DVD in your player look for a code on the dvd with 1 or ALL. DVD's that say 'ALL' will play on any player from all regional codes. Look for this symbol and it should have 1 - 4 for the US or ALL. I found this on Page 12 of your owners manual.

I dont know is this work in your brand, but we dont lost nothign whit try it: 1. Open the tray
2. press the following sequence using the number keys: 98790 (this
is equivalent to the code 9879 with the zero at the end representing
3. Press Close Tray - there should be a sign on the TV screen saying something like 'Region set to 0'
4. Turn off the DVD player for 5 seconds
5. Turn on the DVD player.
Most DVD players have what u call region codes to play different types of dvd's. Look in your DVD menu settings and select the correct region code where u live. The US region code is 1. So this where I would start.
My question to you is does it play normal dvd's ok. Such as DVD's made in the United States, if so it's set right now for US region.
Also check your user maual for all region codes its usually there.
Your player is actually LG RH278H correct, our selection system leaves a lot to be desired sometimes.
Anyays here's you region free hack. Copy and paste into a writer program and then print so you have it in front of you.
[this is from videohelp.com] Press the Home button
Scroll down to the LOCK icon
Press ENTER (you won't see any response.)
Press the 0 key 7 times
A message will appear congratulating you on bbeing region free - press Enter.
You may also want to try this one, although it sounds weird to me in my experience.
Hold down CLEAR on remote and Prog Down on DVD simultaneously for about 6 seconds, then change the value of OP6 from af to 8f.
