    Dear Ginko,
    Brilliant. Thanks so much. I tried your first solution and it worked. In fact it was even easier than you suggested. All I had to do was Open the tray, enter 99990 on TV and Press Enter on the remote and it worked. I was trying to see a series of six DVDs that I had just purchased from the UK (Region 2) and when I placed one in the tray it worked immediately. Thanks again. You are a total champion.
    Best wishes,
    Bruce Elder

Open tray
Enter 99990 on remote
0 will apear on tv
Press Enter on remote
Replace 0 with 1 for region 1
2 for region 2 and so on.

A little tip I found, instead of putting a "0", "1", etc........ put a "9" you should find that you can play pal region 2, and my ntsc region 3 and 6 dvd's without having to reenter the region code. Sweeet (Doesn't always work on ALL units in series.)

Hi.

This are the region hacks, if they do not work, then your firmware is not hackable:

Open tray
Enter 99990 on remote
0 will apear on tv
Press Enter on remote
Replace 0 with 1 for region 1
2 for region 2 and so on.

OR:

Open Disc Drawer
on screen
SD6.1 V34 657-062
SERVO:33050000 REG:2
Press 9999X(X:0,1,2,3,4,5,6)
Close Disc Drawer

or

Open Disc Drawer
Press 9999X(X:0,1,2,3,4,5,6)
Close Disc Drawer

If (99990) (enter) does not work, use (open tray) (99990) (play).

I have an LG FB126 DVD system that only plays region 4. What are the unlock codes to play region 1 and how do I do it??


Hi,

I was made to understand that there are several versions of this model. Pls try:
  • Turn on your DVD player - with no disc inside;
  • Press pause followed by 3 1 4 1 5 9;
  • screen will display current region
  • Press 0
  • enter
or
  • Press On
  • "No disc" will appear
  • Eject Tray
  • Press '0' more than five times.
  • Press Pause
  • Press Off
or
  • Press "pause"
  • Press "1 4 7 2"
  • edit the 5th number group in the code
  • the first number is the region code
  • example; if the number is "12" then the region is set to 1
  • another example, if the number is "42" then the region is set to 4
  • so if you want all regions set it to "02"
  • when finished press "pause" again to exit from the menu
  • power off the unit and turn back on again.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
