Need to unlock region restrictions so unit is multi regional
Sorry, but like a number of Sony models yours is not hackable as the region coding is locked into the unit at the basic hardware level. Changing the region coding requires either internal hardware changes (not cost effective) or a special Sony engineer's remote control which is very expensive and only supplied to authorised Sony Service Centres. It's cheaper to buy a replacement DVD player with the correct coding.
You must either use a different player to watch other region DVDs (cheap, own brand, supermarket players are often easily hackable but search the model number online prior to purchase to be sure) or must use commercially available software to back up your DVDs, creating copies which have no region coding. This type of software is widely available but is never free other than on a limited functionality trial basis.
