How can I unlock a Sony BDP-S185 to allow it to play any region dvd's


When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Google for the programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.

I wish to unlock the region code so that i can play all regions


You can try either of these solutions as there does not appear to be a specific instruction for the DVD21:

Harman Kardon DVD1 / DVD5 / DVD10 / DVD20 / DVD50 / DVD1500 1. Player has to be in standby mode, no disc in tray
2. Press 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9, 2
3. Enter region (1-4)
4. Press OPEN, insert a disc

Note: Region is saved, you will have to set the RC every time you want to watch another DVD.

Harman Kardon DVD22 / DVD23 / DVD31 / DVD47 / HS100 HTS
1. Switch on
2. Press OSD
3. Select "Setup"
4. Enter 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9, 0 (the last number is the region)

See below region codes. It appears Harman Kardon only support 1-4, but it is worth trying 0 and seeing if it works.

First, see if you can find out what type of DVD it is PAL or NTSC. The difference (You need to keep this in mind when selecting your region):
NTSC: usually associated with the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Philippines, Taiwan, and other countries.
PAL usually associated with Europe, most of Africa, China, India, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, North Korea, and other countries (and Brazil, but using the refresh rate and resolution commonly associated with NTSC).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0. Informal term meaning "worldwide". Region 0 is not an official setting; discs that bear the region 0 symbol either have no flag set or have regions 1-6 flags set. Region 0 is commonly referred to as "Region Free", especially when talking about DVD and Blu-ray Disc players.
  1. United States, Canada, Bermuda, Caribbean, U.S. territories
  2. Europe, Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Greenland, French Overseas departments and territories
  3. Southeast Asia, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau
  4. South America, Central America, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, Papua New Guinea and much of Oceania
  5. Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Africa (except Egypt, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho), Central Asia, Mongolia, North Korea
  6. China
  7. Reserved for future use, MPAA-related DVDs and "media copies" of pre-releases in Asia
  8. International venues such as aircraft, cruise ships, spacecraft, etc.
ALLRegion ALL discs have all eight flags set, allowing the disc to be played in any location, on any player.

Good Luck.

I just bought Weeds season 6 from Amazon.com, now when I put it in my PS3 it says mismatch between disc and player region codes, can I change my region code on my PS3 or is there some other way to get it...


Yes you can change the region code on your Ps3.
1.) Go to BD / DVD Parental Control Region Code (don't ask me why its under parental control)
2.) Change the region code from United States to "Other". If it asks for specific check online to see what region the DVD's are from.

My ps3 is not playing any original dvds code 3 and code 2 what should i do?


PS3's are dvd region specific meaning that if it was made in north america it will only play dvd's in region one. The dvds in these region codes are not compatible with a region 1 device which your ps3 is. 2 Europe (except Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus), Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, French overseas territories, Greenland 3 Southeast Asia, South Korea, Republic of China (Taiwan), Hong Kong, MacauAlso the reason they have these codes is so that they can limit what goes out to each region, so certain content can be viewable in what is legal in that region. My recommendation is to sadly, repurchase the dvds anywhere in North America and they'll compatible.
