Hi,

Download the service manual from :-

http://www.jordansmanuals.com/Default.aspx?Brand=LG&Product=DVD-VCR&Model=RC299

That would have all the details. It is advisable not to play with the regional settings. However, as you already did, follow the service manual to get it fixed.

You need to have acrobat reader to view the file.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

To bring up the service menu and options to reset your player and change your player to play ALL dvd's regardless of region by doing :

Press the HOME button on the remote, go to Setup and select Start. From the TV options go to TV Aspect and highlight the 16:9 Wide option (must be 16:9 0ption). Now enter 1397139 using the number keys to access the system configuration information.

To change the values of these options hit the ENTER button and then use the left/right arrow keys to select OPTION 5. Change it's current value to ff using the up/down keys. Now power off with the remote and then power back on. Your recorder should now be region free. To check go back into the system configuration information where Region Code should now be 0.

let me know if you need help or have any trouble at all.Also let me know if there is anything else you want to do with the player.

What does RC 1 mean


RC means REGION CODE - Depending on the numbering, it means that your DVD will only play in countries designated by the code.

Example

RC 1 means Region Code 1...... This disc will play in dvd players in Canada, United States, U.S Territories , Bermuda.

RC 2 = Western Europe, incl. United Kingdom, and Central Europe; Western Asia; including Iran, Israel and Turkey, Egypt; Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho; French overseas territories

RC 3 = Southeast Asia; South Korea; Taiwan; Hong Kong; Macau

RC 4 = Mexico, Central and South America; Caribbean; Australia; New Zealand; Oceania;

RC 5 = Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Continent of Africa, excluding Egypt, South Africa, Swaziland, and Lesotho; Central and South Asia, Mongolia, North Korea.

RC 6 = People's Republic of China, Hong Kong

RC 7 = Reserved for future use (found in use on protected screener copies of MPAA-related DVDs and "media copies" of pre-releases in Asia)

RC 8 = International venues such as aircraft, cruise ships, etc.[1]
RC ALL means all 8 flags are set and can play on ANY player
0 or no region means no flag is set can be played anywhere or flags 1-6.

I hope this helps.

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

I am looking for the region unlock code for a LG DVD model DV4741P. Cna you help?


It uses the same unlock code as the LG 4721P and a number of other LG DVD players.
  1. Power on (with no disc inserted)
  2. Press PAUSE
  3. Press 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9
  4. Enter the desired RC
  5. Press PAUSE
  6. Turn the player off and wait a few seconds
It took me a couple of times to get it right because if you take too long to press the correct buttons it does not work. I chose region code 0 so it now plays all regions.

No disc / Unknown disc type


I had the same problem, some dvd-r's went faulty when the RH-299 couldn't finalize them. Problem fixed when the DVD readhead was replaced.
