I have an LG BH7540TW 3D Blu-Ray / DVD Home Theatre system that only plays region 4. What are the unlock codes to play region 1 and how do I do it??


You cannot change the region on the player. If you want to play a region 1 disc, you'll have to use a computer and hook it up to your TV (you can change the region on optical drives a limited amount of times on computers), or acquire a region 1 player.

If you're savvy enough, you could rip (using a computer) the disk into a compressed format the LG system can read (MKV, MP4, etc.) and play it off a USB stick.

How do I change the region setting on the dvd player so that I can watch dvds from both region 1 and region 2? Many thanks.


If Im correct, VLC media player can play any region DVD.

Also if you go to 'my computer' then right click your DVD drive then go to 'properties' then go to 'hardware' under the dvd drive hardware, youll find a tab called 'region' you can change it from there however you can only change a certain amount of times.

good luck

I want to change my hp computer to region 4, how can i do that


Hi you can change your dvd drive to region 4 but beware that you are only allowed to change the region a limited number of times, it will tell you how many changes you have left.
Go into your control panel then device manager, open DVD/CD ROM then open your installed dvd drive. There should be a dvd region tab select this and there you will see all regions you can change to.
Remember you can only make a limited number of changes!
If this helps please rate me

I'm trying to get my hp laptop to play all region codes an unlimited amount of times. Currently you can only change the region code to a specific region up to 4 times. How would I go about making it an all...


I do not know of a way to remove the limit from the hardware itself but there are several programs that will strip the RPC region code from the DVD. I've used AnyDVD from Slysoft in the past and it works great but is not a free program.

I'm not sure if there are any programs that are free out there.

How do i change the country code in the power dvd software


The region code is changed by the firmware in your drive, not the software. Go to my computer and right-click your drive, then look at the properties. Go to the hardware tab, click your dvd drive, then go to the DVD Region tab. Note that you can change the region a limited number of times on most drives before it is set permanently.

Changing the DVD Region code


Legally, the only way to resolve your issue is a new drive, the region code in the drive has been locked in the firmware and cannot be changed by normal means (You can search google for DVD region Code Cracks, but it is not recommended no legal)

Antipiracy laws mandated a limit to the number of times the Region code can be changed (5) and if you are going to be playing a lot of media from different regions, then get another drive and set it to one region (and mark the region on the drive) and use this for the other

Hello i just bought a acer aspire 6930 in australia and i am In UK (london) the dvd dos not support all regiens is it possible to make it regien free


It's impossible to make it region free but you get a limited amount of region changes.
Open My Computer, right-click on your DVD reader, go to Properties.
There go to the hardware tab, double-click on your DVD, it will open a new window.
There you have a tab named DVD Region, in it you see how many changes you have and you can pick a country/region to use.
