I can only commiserate with all the people above. I also bought a mikomi from Argos as a treat for Christmas and I have found it impossible to find any region codes online so I can watch Region 1 dvds from the USA. Incredibly Mikomi doesn't seem to have an online website to go to - unbelievable!
So there seems to be no solution. I can only advise that people complain to the place where they bought and tell their friends never ever to buy Mikomi!

Hello Anthony,

We actually gotta crack open the code via a firmware upgrade ...

download

http://aiwaownersnetwork.tripod.com/pages/lg/5000_series_firmware.html

then burn it on a CD-R

put the CD in the player and then a menue pops up and you can choose the region code. "0" is free.
this works 100%

Thanks

Fame !

I have a Philips HTS 3371 DVD home theatre and can not play many DVD's as it give wrong region error. Can you please provide the unlock code and how/where to enter it to get it fixed?


Hi -

Please follow the instructions below for unlocking your Philips HTS 3371


Please note: Unlocking a DVD player may invalidate the warranty. Unlock sequences may not work with some firmware updates and some DVD players have been damaged through failed attempts to unlock them. Unlocking your DVD player is done at your own risk.


1. Switch the DVD player ON
2. OPEN the disc tray
3. Key 9 9 9 9 0 using the Philips remote control supplied with the player
4. Press PLAY. The disc tray will close.
5. Switch the player OFF then switch ON again.
6. To test, play a disc from a region which was previously locked.

If it does not work the first time, switch the player off and back on, then try again.

This is a verified unlock method, but I was unable to confirm whether it works for players sold locked to Region 1 (North America). If you have a Region 1 player and the method above does not work, you will not be able to unlock your player.

Regards,
BElectric

Unlocking DVD - Pioneer DV400 k


Hi Jetix,

If the DVD player is capable of playing other regions, you should be able to change the region setting through the menu section. If there isn't an option to change the region settings in the menu, then your DVD player is not able to play other DVDs from other regions.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong

This can only be done on some dvd players unfortunatly. They are locked to regions because of the video format types that vary from country to country.
