Question about Sony DVP-PQ2 Portable DVD

Unlocking Code Required to make the Sony DVP-PQ2 DVD PLAYER MULTI-REGION.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I want to find out from you do you have the dvd unlocking code together with the unlocking code instruction to convert the Sony DVP-PQ2 DVD Player into a Multi-Region DVD Player. I did contact the Company called ALLDVDCodes.com for the unlocking code for this DVD Player but after receiving payment from me they have failed to email me the DVD Unlocking Code as promised and are not responding to my emails.

If you do have the dvd unlocking code for this dvd player, I would be grateful if you could email me the information.

I await your reply.

Andrew French.

    Hello,

    The Sony DVP-PQ2 DVD Player is factory set on Region 2 setting. I need this DVD Player to be set on Region 0 so that it can become a multi-region DVD Player.

You will need to use a "universal" remote control like the One4All 'Kameleon'.

Firstly configure the remote for your sony DVD player:

1. select dvd device on remote
2. hold magic button until rabbit comes out
3. enter device code 0533

Now we need to program buttons 1..5 (you may want to use the buttons with roman numbers at the bottom of the remote, and use another button for V, which doesn't exist) with the following codes, read below for instructions:
1 - 189
2 - 255
3 - 095
4 - 221
5 - 079

For some "universal" remotes, all of the buttons you need to reprogram need to be prefixed by 00. So 1 would be '00189'

This is how you program those numbers:
1. Hold magic button until rabbit comes out.
2. Press 994.
3. Press magic (don't hold).
4. Enter 3 digit code from above.
5. Press button (1..5) where to program it.
6. Repeat steps 1 to 5 for all keys.

That works, but more information on macros is included in the one4all manual for you particular model.

Having set up the remote with the codes unlock the player as follows:

1. Remove disk, put player on standby.
2. Press 1,2,3,4,5 - SUCCESS is displayed and player starts up.
3. Press 1,2,3,4,5 - player shuts down and the unit is region free.

Note that you try this at your own risk as Sony do not support this "feature".

Need unlock code.


I found this region hack here Sony DVP-NS575P region code , check it out:

"Warning
The following guide describes how I managed to make my Sony DVP-NS705V DVD player multi-region.

There are no guarantees that you will be able to do the same. Be aware that you will probably void any warranty you have and possibly even break the player.

Put shortly, you proceed at your own risk.

Introduction
First of all, the Sony DVP-NS705V can be made multi-region simply by applying appropriate service codes, you do not need to install a so called "mod chip".

This supposedly applies to the entire NS-series of Sony DVD players. There are some encouraging reports out there supporting this, but nothing has been verified by me. Again, if you choose to apply this guide to any DVD player, you do so at your own risk.

If you do find that this procedure works on another model, please drop me a line at sonyhelp@selen.org and let me know. Include the exact model number and original region of your player.

Update: Some users have reported success on the following players:

DVP-F21 (special thanks to Garry Self for this one)
DVP-LS500
DVP-LS755
DVP-LS785
DVP-NC615
DVP-NS300

DVP-NS310
DVP-NS315
DVP-NS330

DVP-NS585
DVP-NS590
DVP-NS700
DVP-NS730
DVP-NS765
DVP-NS900
DVP-NS905
DVP-NS930
DVP-PQ1 (thanks go to Michael Joy for this one)

RDR-GX3 (thanks to Andreas Norman)
RDR-GX7 (thanks to Daniel Tapie)
RDR-GX300
RDR-GX700
RDR-HX900
RDR-HX1000


Please note that not all players behave exactly like the NS705. For example, some players do not display "success" when hacked.

Thanks to all who have contributed.

The infrared service codes required to make the update are available on the Internet. Unfortunately, not many people have an appropriate device to enter the codes into. You basically need a programmable remote (Philips Pronto, One-For-All) or a PDA (Palm, iPAQ) with suitable software.

This guide shows you how to make the update with a regular PC equipped with an IRDA port.

The procedure

1. Download the winsamp -package from Blank Frank's site.

http://www.veg.nildram.co.uk/remote.htm

This innovative piece of software allows you to send standard home electronics IR signals using a PC IRDA port.

2. Extract the package onto a bootable DOS floppy disk.

3. Download this IR code

http://www.selen.org/files/REMOTE.TXT

file and place it in the same directory as the package above.

This file holds the five necessary IR codes converted to the format used by Blank Frank's winsamp.exe. Please do not bother Frank with questions concerning this particular procedure.

4. Boot up your PC from the floppy disk and run winsamp.exe.

If your IRDA port doesn't appear as COM2 you may override this by using an appropriate command line switch. For example, use COM1 by running 'winsamp C1'.

5. Press the 'r' key to load up the codes into winsamp.

6. Make sure your DVD player is in standby mode and your IRDA port is within range.

7. Run the IR codes from 1 to 5 by pressing Enter on each corresponding button.

8. Your DVD player should start up and display the text "SUCCESS".

9. Repeat step 7. Your player should return to standby mode.

10.Your player is now multi-region."

Multi region code


An option. 
 Download DVD fab or another like product which takes off the region code completely using a PC then copy the DVD onto another DVD using the DVD burner,or find someone who can do this for you.
