This works to change region code 5.
This is how it works.
1)Power on player.
2)Ensure that there is no DVD inside the player.
3)The tray should be closed.
4)Press "Subtitle" on the remote control.
5)Press 53814 for region 5 (For other regions see any of the other cracks)
6)The region code 5 will be displayed on the left top corner of your screen.
7)Now press 9. A 9 will be displayed on the top left corner of the screen.
8)Press Subtitle on the remote again
9)Power off the player.
10)Power it on again and you are region independent!!
Worked for me.

Hi, I have a samsung dvd/vcr combo player model number v6800 which I hacked to be region free. It now plays dvds with region codes regardless from where they originate (ie; 1 or 4), however, some of my...


If the dvds which are "all regions" are recorded from a computer, your dvd player may not play them. I assume the dvds which have a region code have been professionally prepared. Sometimes, the cheap dvd players will play anything while the more sophisticated ones will give you trouble unless everything is just perfect.

I bought a Samsung BD C6900 from USA designed for region 1 and A . Living in Europe I cannot play my european DVDs and BDs ? Are there any solutions to change the region code ?


Here is a solution: http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks/samsung-bd-c6900/10895

Please note, however, that even after region code hack, it may remain NTSC only, so if you are planning to play European DVDs recorded with PAL system, it may not work.

Need to unlock the region code so that I can play Australian DVD's on UK machine


Go to videohelp.com and search on the model number - the sequence of remote control keys to press to change the region code is there. It worked well for me, so I could play US DVDs on my UK region machine.

Won't play Canadian dvds


It is illegal to change the region code. I will not accept liability, but if you enter the phrase, "change dvd region code philips" on the YouTube website, some jokesters have some good videos which will show you how to do it. Two things they do not tell you:
1) It is illegal
2) It will only work 3 times, and then your player will be locked into whatever region code you set it to

You would really need a Multizone DVD player to do what you want to do legally (Philips does not currently make any of these)

Changing the region code


Hi,

You can only change the region code a few times (usually 5), so I wouldn't do it. You should leave the current player at region 1, and buy and install another DVD player and set it to region 4, then you will have 1 for each region you want.

Same steps, only the code is wrong:
They are as follows

Region 1 (US, Canada) - 29334
Region 2 (Europe, Middle East, Japan) - 38767
Region 3 (South East Asia, Hong Kong) - 56732
Region 4 (South America, Oceania) - 76884
Region 5 (Russia, India) - 53814
Region 6 (China) - 24462

And just press 9 to chose REGION FREE
