The lg BD390 Blu-Ray player can be made region free.
There are different ways to go about making your player region free,

1. Power on the player with no disk in the drive.
2. Wait for the "No Disc" message to appear.
3. Press Pause on the Remote.
4. Enter 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9 on the Remote (the word COdE or FF appears on the display).
5. Enter 0 on the Remote (0 = All Regions, 1 = Region 1, 2 = Region 2, etc.).
6. Press Pause on the Remote.
7. Power the player off, wait 30 seconds and then power back on.
NB: If the above code fails to work then once the player has displayed the "No disc" message press Stop before entering the above code.

Here is another way to make your player region free,

1. Turn DVD player on without any disc in the tray. "No Disc" should appear on the screen.
2. Press "Pause" using the remote. Nothing will come on to the screen at this stage.
3. Using the remote press 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9
4. The screen will now show a prompt for a new code "Code ---"
5. Press "0" for universal code.
6. Press "Pause" again.
7. "No Disc" should appear on the screen again meaning that you are all set to go.

This one is for a lg dv492h

1. Turn the DVD on.
2. Open the tray.
3) Press 00 (Zero Zero). A white screen will appear.
4) Press the desired region ( 0 = Region free )
5) Press Pause

Take care

    This is also an additional way to making your DVD player region free. This works for any LG DVD Blu-Ray Player.

    1. Open the Web browser on your computer and navigate to the LG driver
      link provided in the Resources section. You must have a
      Windows-operated computer to download this driver properly. Click
      "Save" and the file downloads to your computer.

    2. Insert the blank CD into your CD burner and launch the CD-burning software you have installed on the computer.

    3. Click-and-drag the downloaded driver into the main viewing area of the window, then select "Burn" and burn the file onto the CD.

    4. Remove the CD from the CD burner and insert it into the LG DVD drive. Press the "0" button on the remote control lonce the CD loads to select "0" as the region (this represents all
      regions). Continue to push the "0" button until a window appears
      stating the DVD player is region code free.

    5. Press "Enter" to complete the conversion process to all region zones.
    Take care

Did you try this hack?
Note that it works only on some of the older firmware versions. Hopefully you have not updated your firmware recently.

    I downgraded the version of LG BD 390 to LG_BD_390VBB_v808526 and tried but no luck I still get disk check error.

    It works only on region 2 firmware(UK, France etc.,) is that what you downgraded too? If not then you can try obtaining it from the LG UK site.

  • prasadamitab Jul 09, 2010

    I downgraded by using files from lg US site, do you mind passing me link for lg UK site.

    I tried that too but no luck, I am wondering if I burned contents in the zip 600.zp correctly ?
    By any chance do you have iso format for RMTM0000 available with you ?

  • eagle338
    eagle338 Jul 12, 2010

    You have to burn the files not the folders. The player cannot read the files that are in a folder as simple as that. As for RMTM0000 I do not think that hack works for ya!

You can use the "LG5000 hack" to get it region free.
The procedure is same as in the HT503TH.

"1) Download

2) Burn the folder 'RMTM0000' to a CD-R making sure that the directories stay in order.

3) Insert the disk to your player, disk will be ejected shortly and menu will appear.

4) Select 0 for all regions and press ENTER and then PAUSE on remote to confirm.

5) You have multiregion theater.

6) Have Fun!"
