Unlock multi region codes


Most units are sold to work only in a specific part of the world .

Some allow you to make changes but the number of changes are limited by the firmware and after a few changes the unit's capability to change is forever gone. When that happens make sure that it happens on your region code lest you get stuck with perhaps a pricey paper weight.

Lg DVD player blu ray BP240


You will need to look in the owner's manual for the answer to this one.
Or look in the setup menu on the DVD player.
And on DVD players, it's not usually zip code. It's region.
If you are in the USA now, and the DVD player was set up for somewhere else in the world, good luck trying to change that.
The USA is Region 1. If the player is set to somewhere else, I don't know if you can change that.
If in the USA, try for Region !.

Im wondering if anyone know how to turn off the region zone for a Sony DVP-FX750. It was purchased in america with a zone 1 & we have zone 4 in Australia. I've tried to burn a DVD to play, but...


This question is one of my most frequent on FixYa.

There is no "region-free" or "region 0" setting for any DVD player/recorder. Only DVD media can be region free. Every single offer to set a player or recorder to region free that I am familiar with has been a scam. The reason for this is to prevent DVD piracy.

Most DVD players and recorders (SONY included) have provisions for making a maximum of THREE changes to their region code. A fourth attempt at changing the region code will result in the player/recorder being turned into a paperweight.

Bkhopkins- in your case, you will be able to change your region code from region 1 (USA) to region 4 (AUS). Doing so will leave your player with 2 more changes, maximum. Check your manual for the procedure and the exact number of changes you are allowed. Please be aware that after you change to Region 4, any Region 1 DVD's will not be viewable unless you switch back, which will use another of your three changes.

You have an alternative to salvage your DVD's by downloading a program called DVD Shrink. This program is capable of removing the region code from your DVDs and saving them as region-free at the sacrifice of some quality. You will at least the be able to view your US DVD's without sacrificing a region code change on your player.

Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

I bought 3 disney movies from the us can'play them on my dvd need a code area australian


Of course I cannot condone any solution contrary to any Australian, US, or international law.

Most DVD players offer the option to change the region code...
Please be aware that due to DVD piracy problems, every DVD player manufactured, regardless of who makes it or where it is made, allows a maximum (if at all) of THREE region code changes.
In your circumstance, this would mean that you can change your DVD player region code to region 1 (US), watch your videos, and then change it back to the AU region code...You would then be allowed one more change. If you attempt to change the region code after that, your DVD player would lock out and be turned into a paperweight.

As a "Yank" who has been to Australia (Perth NSW- twice!) I sympathize with your problem- wanting to have these videos forever and not being able to watch them at all....

The only "safe" option that I can offer is to surf the web for a program called DVD-Shrink, or something similar that will allow you to remove the region code from your DVD's, and set it to "region zero"...which will play the DVD anyplace, anytime. DVD-Shrink works as a copy program from a PC DVDR drive and can remove most region codes from a DVD depending on the disc- most is explained in the FAQ.

Please do not allow yourself to be duped into trying an "all regions" download for your DVD PLAYER. Every single one that I have received a reply about, after warning off the "customer" has resulted in a "my player does not work anymore" response!

What does it mean when my dvd player says wrong region??


DVD's are coded to play in different parts of the world. Each DVD player is set up to recognise these codes. Most are set up to recognise only the region code of the area it was made for. For example Region 1 is for the USA and Region 2 is UK and parts of Europe. A DVD player made for the USA market would not be able to play any other discs with a Region code other than 1. And so on... This was done for the film industry benefit so that films can be released at later dates in different parts of the world without everybody seeing it on DVD issued in the USA.
However most DVD players can be "hacked" by a combination of keys allowing the user of say a Region 2 player to change it to another region. Some can also be changed to Region 0 which means it should play any disc.
How to change the Region code can be found by putting the model number of the DVD into a search engine and the words 'region code'. Some can be found on this site too.

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.
