DVD region code lock unlocking on PS3

Is it possible?
I bought my PS3 from Singapore.
I now live in Australia.
My PS3 cannot play rental DVDs with Region 4 and cannot play DVD for all regions. I wish to make my Daewoo DV-900 multiregional, essentially free. Can you do that?

I don't know if this will solve the problem, but there are people on that site who may be able to.

Hi Lleuclid,

With the indulgence of yalmer...

To my knowledge, PS3s are basically region free, unfortunately it is the TV (more often) that can not display the video. Australia and Singapore both are using PAL (576i) system while Region 4 is using NTSC (480i), completely different color system. Hence the TV where the PS3 is connected to should be capable of either PAL or NTSC. Alternately, most PAL TVs can play 480i (NTSC) if and only if they’re hooked up using SCART RGB connector.

On to your other concern of making a Daewoo DV-900 region free, pls try below steps:
1.Open tray
2.With Control push 8 2 8 6 and 0
3.It will display on screen REGION FREE
4.Close tray
5.Ready

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have an aussie ps3 trying 2 play dvd and it says region code incorrect how do i fix this


The PS3s' DVD and Blu-Ray player is region locked. This means that your Australian PS3 can only play DVD and Blu-Ray movies made for the region Australia is in or are region free (region code 0).

For DVD's, Australia is region code 4.
For Blu-Ray, Australia is region code B or region code 2.

Although this doesn't help your current problem, the PS3 is region free for PS3 games (you can play games from any region).

To work around this, I propose either ripping the DVD to your computer, then burning it onto a different DVD or streaming the DVD directly from your computer to the PS3. Streaming is definitely the better bet if you have more DVD's from another region.

To rip and burn your own copy, use a blank DVD disc and DVD burning/ripping software such as Nero.

To stream to your PS3, check out the following:
PS3 Media Server (my personal favorite) for PC
TVersity for PC
MediaLink for Mac

Enjoy your movie (hopefully)!

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.

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 region code


Yes you can.. Blu-ray discs are not region coded.. However if you trying to play a DVD or any other format disc then it would not be possible since these are region coded.. However the PS3 games are region free.. can be bought from anywhere and played anywhere..

Hope this helps!!

MY japoneese ps3


The pal ps2 games and dvds will not play on a Japanese ps3 due to region coding. You can play all ps3 games and blu ray films because they do not use region coding. Some games will also play differently on a ps3, for example, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (I highly recommend the game) will not have any blood on a Japanese ps3. The region coding feature can not be changed/modified. I would recommend returning Japanese ps3 and purchasing a European model instead if that is possible. Bon chance.
