the menu selector down to Preferences and then press the Right arrow. Press
2, 1, 2, 2, 2 and then 5. Press
Left arrow. Press
Down arrow. The

You should go back to the sales person if it has been a recent purchase as there is no reason why they should even be in a possession of a system that is in the wrong region, there is North American, European and Asian region why they installed one of these other two regions is beyond me, but the answer to your question in short is no, the only thing you can do is encode DVD into a region free and you should be good.
U from Europe,Asia or the Middle East?Yes.Ur Blu-Ray player play only DVD disc in PAL format.U bought American DVD disc in the United States?Yes.U can't play american DVD disc in ur Blu-Ray player?Because the US American DVD disc u bought in the United State play only in the NTSC format.
try to unlock your dvd player to play all free region. what you need is the code to unlock and a remote control to enter the into menu/programming mode. please specify model # of your dvd player when you look for the unlock key.
Many DVD players are preset to one region and if you use a DVD destined for any other region, the player will refuse to play. Some players have the option to change this to universal mode. Check your player's manual if yours has this facility.
Yes. You can play VCD movies and and Audio CDs on most players.
The screen will show: "Region Code: 2" Press [1-6] to manually set the region OR  for multi-region.
Press [SETUP] to exit
You will now be able to play DVDs from anywhere in the world.
This is particularly useful, because region 1 DVDs from the US often come out when the movies are still in the cinemas over here. Region 1 DVDs can be bought perfectly legally by mail order or from the internet.
