My panasonic dmr-ea18 says it supports Region 1. How may I unlock it to play Regions 2 and 4 also?


Easy answer. You don't.

Like many Sony and Panasonic models there is no hack possible on this model as the region coding is specific to the internal hardware.

The only way to do it is with a new main board and that will cost far more than a cheap and easily hackable player such as the excellent Philips DVP5980 with progressive scan, USB input, DivX and HDMI upscaling, still widely available at clearance outlets for under £30.

Sorry to disappoint you but hopefully I've saved you wasting time on further searches.

Is there a region unlock code for a Panasonic DMR-BS850 Blu-Ray player? Thanks.


This player is like many other Panasonic units in that it cannot be hacked to become a multi region model. Many Sony units have the same restriction. Both manufacturers typically fit region specific chipsets: hacking is therefore not a simple case of opening the disc drawer and pressing a secret button sequence.

The only multi-region hack which is possible is to the DVD-video playback. To do this you need a special service remote control (costs more than the player and not sold to the general public) and this does not make any changes to the Blu-Ray region coding. Note that hacking the player in any way invalidates the balance of any manufacturer's warranty and if you're in the UK you'll lose your Sale of Goods Act protection.

Although buying a service remote is not realistically possible, you can rent one (provided you're able to pay a large deposit against it's return). Just enter "DMR-BS850 hack" on your preferred search engine. I'd usually provide a link to a supplier but I don't know which country you're in.

Before renting a remote for this you may wish to bear in mind that you can buy a highly specified and easily hackable regular DVD player for less such as the Philips DVP5980 (around £25, HDMI output with digital upscaling, DivX, USB drive, progressive scan).

Not the answer you wanted, but I hope that it has still been of some assistance to you. Please return the favour by rating my answer.

NEED TO HAVE REGION 2 ON MY SONY DVD PLAYER DVP-FX810 THAT I BOUGHT IN THE USA ? REGION 1 . THANK YOU .


Sorry, it's not possible. The DVP-FX810 is one of many Sony players where the region coding cannot be hacked without making internal hardware changes. To do so is not cost effective when you can buy perfectly good multi region (or at least hackable players) brand new for £30 including a few Sony models which can be hacked (e.g the excellent DVP5980 with progressive scan, USB input, DivX and HDMI upscaling, still widely available at clearance outlets for under £30).

If you want hackable players avoid Sony and Panasonic unless you have found a model specific hack prior to purchase as many of them have the same limitation.

Sorry there's no fix on this occasion, but I hope that you've found my reply to be of some use. All I ask in return is that you rate my answer.

Connection problems


Assuming you have connected the DVD to the component (red / green / blue phono) connectors at the back of the set, and the TV is set to EXT5 then the problem is a setting on the DVP5980.

Check the Upscaling setting on the DVP5980 by pressing the HD UPSCALE button on the unit. Cycle through the options until you get a picture. The 30PF9975/12 is not fully HD compatible, so may only support the lower resolutions. (If any)

If this does not work, connect the DVP5980 with the scart and power on the without a disc in the tray.

Press Setup on the remote.

Press the right arrow button twice to get to the VideoSetup Page.

Move down to the Component setting an change from RGB to INTERLACE.

Disconnect the scart and connect the component lead. Select EXT 5 on the TV.

If the picture appears correctly, go back to the Video Setup Page and change the progressive option to On.
