    If that does not work then try this:


    1. Open the disc tray
    2. Enter 9, 7, 3, 5
    3. Change region

    If that does not work then try this:


    1. Press SETUP
    2. Go to "Preferences"
    3. Enter 1, 3, 7, 9
    4. Change region using UP/DOWN
    5. Press ENTER

    Let me know if any of these work...I will continue to search

  • Anonymous Jul 19, 2009

    Try these one out first:



    Using the remote control, press the "setup" button and use the right arrow key to advance to the far right-hand tab entitled "Preferences"

    Note: If there is a disc in the player, you will NOT see the "Preferences" tab!!!!

    Enter code number 1379 and then use the up and down arrows to change the arrow code to match the DVD you want to play.



    If that don't work, try this:

    1) turn on the dvd
    2) open the tray
    3) enter 9735
    4) change the region code
    5) exit to main menu



    If that don't work, then try this:

    When power on, press the "eject" button to open the drive
    b) Press the button of "Title" on the remote control
    c) Press "Previous Page"
    d) Press "Next Page"
    e) Now enter the region code you want

Hi, its seems like theres a bit of confusion out there on the web about region codes, on new dvd players (last 5 years) it is not possible to change the region. The technology that controls region coding is hard wired into the dvd player itself it can't be changed via the remote or by a software update etc..
The region is decided by the manufacturer in production, so U.S dvd players are manufactured to
region 1 (U.S, Canada) specifications, I live in the U.K so if I bought an FXM-1911C where I live it would be manufactured to region 2(Western Europe) specifications, and I would not be able to play U.S dvds
This is common amongst the majority of dvd players
http://www.polaroid.com/service/userguides/ce/lcd_tvs/fxm1911c_ug.pdf
Your player states on page 33 that it will only play dvd's from the region that it is intended for.
I know its annoying and I think its arguably not fair that they do this, but it was a decision made by the manufacterers, this is not the case with blu-ray discs which tend to be a lot more forgiving region wise.
If you nee dto watch films with a region different to that of your player, you can either try running on a Pc's dvd player, where often you are allowed to change region a limited number of times , or if you intend to watch a lot think about investing in something like
http://www.overstock.com/Electronics/Philips-Multi-region-DVD-Player-with-HDMI-Refurb/3032261/product.html?cid=133635
Its £31 or $50 and will play dvd's from any region, plus you could hook it up to the video inputs on your fxm-1911c
Hope it works out for you
Tim

There is no way to unlock the region on this LCD / DVD combo. I have tried in the past and it's not possible.

You will have to get new remote.it comes with company book let that has all the region code.to make it function and work.
as this codes are only available with company.also if the remote circuit becomes faulty the orignal region code will not get detected.the other reason.if you try the faulty region code more then 5 times the circuit gets blocked and stops detecting region code.
you can go for new remote.to get all the required codes.

I am not sure of all the troubleshooting you have gone through already.

Have you tried pushing 1379 on your remote?
If not, try that, it will display the current region... choose 9 (region free).

Unfortunately not all dvd players allow you to change region codes. The one built into your unit is one of those kind of players. Polaroid chose to lock the region to the country that the units were sold from. The only way to have the unit play dvd's from other regions is to buy a unit from that country.

Posted on Jul 18, 2009

  • bvanjoff Jul 19, 2009

    I've searched all of the sites that have region hacking codes and your unit is not listed on any of them. As stated earlier, unfortunately the manufacturer chose to lock the region code down for your unit.

Hello Trence,

After searching for a solution to your problem, checking private and public database's for region hacks. I was unable to find a solution specifically for your make and model of dvd player. ( There are less known hacks for built in dvd players)

There is one universal code for Polaroid dvd players altho this is not 100% sure to work for you but you can try it.

1. Turn on unit
2. Open lid
(All instructions on remote)
3. Press SETUP
4. Use the down-arrow to reach PREFERENCES menu
5. Press ENTER
6. Use the down-arrow to reach DEFAULTS menu
7. Press SETUP
8. Press 1379 (You will see ---- appear one at a time)
9. Press ENTER until you reach desired region (9 for region-free)
10. Press STOP

Post back if this does in fact work for you, if it does not then honestly there is no hack for your built in dvd player. I have put in a request with the private site I belong to and they will have there experts try and find a process that will work with your dvd player.

    I'm sad to hear that the method described did not work. As I previously stated there are no other known process's to for your DVD player.

    The simple fact that it is a built in DVD player, lowers the chance of there being ANY possible way to hack the region settings.

    These process's are not standard company supplied information. These are mod's and hacks discovered by electronic experts. Built in DVD players are alot harder to test and find solutions thus making it rare that anyone ever figures out a way to do so.

    ****The only other suggestion I can make is that you focus on changing the DVD's region settings. Do you have a DVD Burner/Writer on your PC ? Post back and let me know please, and I can explain how you can change the DVD's region settings.


  • Quickfx PC Repair Jul 19, 2009

    I'm sorry no one else could find a solution for you. I don't take it personal that you didn't believe me when I was the first to say there is not a solution out there for your DVD player. I have asked a group of experts whom run the private site I belong to, to research the matter but it could take weeks before they find a solution if it's even possible. Not all DVD players have region hacks...that is just a fact.

    I am very sorry to say you will not find one, the only option you have is making the DVD itself region free which I can help you do if you have a DVD burner in your computer.

I have a LG HT554PH home cinema and would like a region code to enable it to play region 1 dvds. i have just paid £5 from a website and it is no use my dvd player wasnt on the list. there is a reion...


Hi

To make the player as region free, switch on the LG HT554 Player. Push the eject button to open the tray. Now, press “0” on your player 4 times or until the region code settings shows up on your player. It will show the current region code and will then ask for new region code. Press “0” on your remote to set it as a new region code(0=All Regions). Press Enter key on remote, now restart your player and check the player by playing the DVD’s. It should be region free now.
Please post back for any further assistance. If you are satisfied please do accept the solution.
