Hi.

To change the region code follow procedures below:

Procedure 1:

1. To start the hack click the ‘Home’ button on the remote
2. 'Setup’ appears then press ‘Enter’
3. Press Right cursor key and scroll down to TV Aspect, press right cursor and highlight the 16x9 aspect ratio so it’s ticked on and in orange.
4. Enter numbers 1 3 9 7 1 3 9
5. An On-Screen window appears and you have to press Enter to change settings.
6. NB these are the original setting: -
7. Option 1:12 Option 2: 25 Option 3: 93 Option 4: 53
8. Option 5: 20 Option 6: c0 Option 7: f1 Option 8: 50
9. To change the values of these options press the ‘enter’ button and scroll with arrow keys until you get to the option you want to change. For the region code hack replace the value of option 5 with the value of: ff
10. Changing this value will set unit to region code 0 which should allow any region to be played on the player.
11. Press the ‘Enter’ return button to save and ‘Return’ to exit. Reboot the device

Procedure 2:

Click the home button on the remote, goto the Setup page, highlight the 16X9 aspect ratio and enter in this coded sequence: 1 3 9 7 1 3 9

To change the values of these options hit the enter button and scroll with arrow keys until you get to the option you want to change. For the region code hack replace the value of option 5 with the value of: ff

Changing this value will set unit to region code 0 which should allow any region to be played on the player. Hit the return button to save and exit. Reboot the device

    The code works but it will only take you to a system info page which you cannot change any settings at all so pretty useless.

Region code lock out


You can only change this code 5 times before it locks out the CD ROM drive. If it's locked out, you will need a new CD ROM drive. Your best bet is to get two external CD ROM drives and set one to region 1 and the other to region 4. This way you don't have to keep buying CD ROM drives. :)

Some american dvds don't work on our dvd player.


DVD players have a region code in them, and each dvd is encoded with a regon code. This is a copyright protection from the movie industry. Dvd's can be made without a region code, if so they will play on all machines. Some dvd players let you change the region code only a few times before you are locked out. Some dvd players will not allow you to change the region code at all.

American DVD discs will not load and play, but overseas discs will


no the coding would not change from using the dvd's from overseas. the ones that you say are american may not be american and that is most likley the problem. try putting in a dvd that you have had for a long time that you bought here in the states and if that works then the dvds you say are american are the problem.

How do I unlock my LG RC388 to play other region disks


YES, it can be changed to view all regions. I've just done my new RC388 (bought it 4 hours ago) and it works.

To start the hack:
Click the home button on the remote, go to the Setup page, highlight the 16X9 TV aspect ratio and enter in this coded sequence: 1 3 9 7 1 3 9

A new factory menu now comes up on the screen.

To change the values of these options hit the enter button and scroll with arrow keys until you get to the option you want to change. For the region code hack replace the value of "option 5" with the value of: ff

Press enter.

(Changing this value will set unit to region code 0 which should allow any region to be played on the player.)

Now, hit the "return" button to save and exit.

Switch off the machine - switch on - all is well now.

Good Luck,
Will
