SOURCE: Need To Unlock My Sony BDP-S500 To Play Imported DVDS And BLU-RAY

I don't think that it is illegal to change the region of a DVD player as a DVD drive in a computer can be changed easily up to 5 times before they are locked on one region. Sony Blu-Ray players at this point don't have a hack code and they have to have a hardware mod to play both region A and B Blu-Ray discs. There are inexpensive Phillips DVD players that are region free or they have an easy method to make them region unlocked. I don't know of any Blu-Ray players that have that feature, but you can get a N. American region coded player that will play both PAL and NTSC, but you will have to use a voltage converter as N America is 120V 60Hz and Europe is 220-240 @ 50hz.
The other option is to get a Blu-Ray/DVD RW drive for your computer and set it as a region 1drive and connect it to the TV for playing US discs.
There are other things you can do but those ARE illegal or questionable and I can't post them here.

Best of luck

It is illegal to change the zone on a DVD or Blu-Ray player. You should invest in what is called a Multizone Blu-Ray Player - it will play any disc from any region. That is the only legal answer I can offer. YouTube does, hoewever, feature hacks on unlocking the region code - but it is still illegal.

You will need the following:
1) Internet connection
2) Wired router
3) long enough ethernet cable to reach from your blue ray player to the router.

Step 1:
Eject any disks and turn off the blu-ray player by unplugging it.

Step 2:
Attach the ethernet cable to the router and the other end to the ethernet port on the back of the blu-ray player.

Step 3:
Turn on the blu-ray player and wait for it to load all the way.

Step 4:
Using the remote, arrow over to the left to "Setup", the up to "Network Update".

Step 5:
After the unit updates and restarts, repeat until it tells you "Already Updated".

That should help you play the newer movies, and even some of the older ones.

Why is it a sony BDP-S1200 not play DVD discs but can play blue ray discs?


Check that you are playing the correct region coded discs for your player. Blu-Ray discs tend to be universal but not DVDs. If you are playing Region2 disc when the player is set for region 1 (American) then they won't play and again Vice Versa.

I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in playing the new Blu-ray disc in the Sony Blu-ray Player. In most cases, the issue might be with the Java content on the new Blu-ray discs is making these issues. The Blu-ray technology is developing everyday and adding more and more features to the existing technology. Hence it is required to make the Blu-ray Player up-to-date by installing the latest firmware update available from the manufacturer (who ever it is). Going ahead with the first step, please install the latest firmware update available for the Blu-ray Player.

Cd/dvd player only able to play dvd's


Get a hold of your manufacturer and verify the warranty on your cd/dvd player. I do know that if the cd's are not finalized then cd/dvd players will not be able to read them. If under warranty your manufacturer can replace it or troubleshoot the problem with you over the phone.

Sony BluRaywon't play back disk


That is one of the problem with manufacturers that don't clearly explain the consumers that most of the blue ray dvd player is designed to play blue ray dvds &regular dvds,but it wasn't never designed to back any DVD-R or DVD-RW.
Sorry,there is no way around it,because Sony enjoyed being exclusive in many things.
