Question about Samsung DVD-H1080 DVD Player
After getting clarification from Fixya I can pass the links below to you to check yourself
Some players are harder than others to do this but you may want to try here or here
Toshiba's and JVC's are the harder ones to do
I use a Phillips myself as it is not only cheaper but has much more going for it than many of the higher end units. i throw anything at it and it just plays
The older the unit that harder it is to do the region free thing with.
I let my EX have the panasonic (big grin)
If you cant find a fix then look at the codes available for cheaper brands and how easy it is to do it before you purchase one.
Just a thought.
Hope this gives you the information you need
It would be very decent of you to consider the quality of our experts answers and judge them accordingly as you pass through FixYa.
PS. If you dont find it on there then a google search for "region free" will probably get you other sources but AVOID any that want money as there are plenty of FREE sites out there that do this.

That doesn't work as the remote control doesn't have numbers on it. I have tried with a different Samsung remote and that still doesn't work

1.Turn on R155 without disc inserted
2. Press and hold Play and Stop for 5 seconds then release
3. Press menu
4. enter code for current region as above i.e if you have a region 4 type: 7, 6, 8, 8, 4
5. The region is displayed in the top right.
6. You have about 5 seconds to enter the new region (1,2,3,4,5,6 or 9 for multiregional)
Region codes for Samsung:
RC 1: 2, 9, 3, 3, 4
RC 2: 3, 8, 7, 6, 7 (or 5, 7, 5, 3, 8)
RC 3: 5, 6, 7, 3, 2
RC 4: 7, 6, 8, 8, 4
RC 5: 5, 3, 8, 1, 4
RC 6: 2, 4, 4, 6, 2

Sorry, there isn't one. Your model is not hackable.
The usual Samsung hacks involve using the remote to enter the correct numbers but your model has no number keypad on the remote. Substituting a universal remote also does not work and I've been informed by Samsung that the region coding on this model is hardware encoded just like on many Sony and Panasonic models so you cannot even override the coding using a service centre remote control (I've tried). I discovered this when a friend purchased a large quantity of clearance overstock region 6 DVD H1080's and asked me to convert them for resale in the UK (region 2).
To hack your model requires internal hardware replacement and this is not economically viable.
