Turn the player on and open the disc tray. Press [CLEAR] followed by  and one of the keys ... corresponding to the region you want to set the player for (1 for Region 1, 2 for Region 2 and so on, press 0 for Region 0 or Region Free). Turn the player off then on again for the changes to take effect.
To verify the region code, press [SETUP] followed by . A screen will then pop up with the firmware info and the current region code setting. Using [SETUP] did not work for me.
