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?

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.

My Samsung smart tv & my dvd/bluray player recorder I bought at same time. Haven't had blurays til now & wont play at all. Rental ones did now I've bought my own & they don't play!Not tech minded.HELP


Each DVD player is assigned a code for the region in which it's sold. For example USA/Canada are Region 1 players. DVD players will refuse to play discs not coded for its specific region. In effect, this means that a DVD purchased in one country is normally unreadable on a DVD player bought in another region.

If your rental DVDs work in the player then there is nothing wrong with your DVD player. If you have purchased DVDs that do not work the problem is with the DVDs you have, not with the DVD player.

How to unlock the DVD component of our blu ray player so that we can play multi Region DVDs


You didn't mention make and model of player. However, try videohelp.com to see if there is a region reset or unlock for your player there (it will usually reset it unlock entire player, not just DVD part only). Easiest way is go to google, type in make one model of player, the word "region" and "videohelp.com"

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)!

I bought a playstation 3 in South Africa and have moved to Australia and I can get any game or DVD to play on it that I have bought in Australia why?


I think you wanted to write that you CAN'T watch DVDs or play games bought in Australia on your PS3.
The reason is the region code of your playstation. It only can play Region Code 2 DVDs and games. In Australia you only can buy Region Code 4 media.
You need to buy your media from south africa or Europe. Some blueray-discs are region code free. You can check this on: http://www.blurayregioncodes.com/
As far as I know it's not possible at the moment to change the region code of the play station.

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!!
