You can't, it's fixed unless you have some advance hardware modifications skills. Even if you could, you have a few other problems. First, Region Codes are Digital Rights Management codes (read: security features) imposed by the industry on all players and pre-recorded DVD's. This is completely aside from the other main issue that you have and that is that you live in the US and our DVD's use the NTSC analog television encoding standard for playback because that's what our TV's use (more contemporary television sets also use the ATSC digital format as well but DVD's are still NTSC). The UK uses the PAL standard which is completely different. So you would not only need a DVD player that you could change the Region Code on it, but you would also need one that you could change the Analog Standard on it AND on top of that be able to convert the PAL signal back into NTSC for your television. A 10 year old basic DVD player from a common consumer manufacturer will not have these capabilities. And that's not to rip on your equipment because I used to have the exact same player and it was a good little machine but it has serious limitations specifically because the format was so new when that player was released and to ad features like that wouldn't have put the price through the roof in 2001. And despite what anyone has told you about codes or firmware hacks, they will not work on a unit that old and changing a region code in and of itself will not make it viewable on your TV.
The type of player you need, though, is available and they don't cost that much anymore. Here's a link to Amazon for the DVD players you need.
you are playin a dvd drom a different region.
For example Australia and RSA have different DVD regions. this page will show you the regions of different places.
You could get a region free dvd player, OR you could install "slysoft any dvd" to your PC as this lets your PC dvd drive run region free.
The following steps will allow you to program your InteracTV controller:
Make sure the InteracTV controller has good batteries. Slide the 3
position memory switch, on the back of the controller, to the desired
memory position. The controller is capable of being setup for up to 3
different DVD players in 3 different locations.The controller must be
setup and tested individually for each of the 3 DVD players, but once
that is done the controller will retain the manufacturer's code and
does not need to be setup again.If the consumer accidentally enters a
new valid 4-digit manufacturer’s code, then they must set it up again
for that DVD player.It is a good idea to write the 4-digit
manufacturer’s code in the labeling area provided on the back of the
Insert the compilation DVD into the DVD player and turn on the DVD player and TV.
Insert the programming card into the controller; the green light should blink twice.
Locate the manufacturer’s codes in the user’s manual.
Enter the first 4 digit code listed under the manufacturer. Use the
right arrow button for the number. The light should blink after each
button press and blink a long blink after the 4th digit is entered.
Remove the programming card.The light should double blink when the card is removed
Insert the test card into the unit;the green light should double blink.
The DVD should skip to the test screen, if it does not, repeat from
step 3, choosing the next manufacturer’s code on the list. If the test
card skips to the footage, which resembles the test card, then proceed
with testing the unit.See Testing the unit section of you manual or
quick setup instructions.
If you have tried all of the manufacturer's codes listed and
you cannot locate an acceptable code, see programming the unit using
manual search in your user's manual.
