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.

How do I unlock to be able to play multi-region DVDs?


If you put in a multi-region DVD and it asks you to change region it will only change 5 times. The last region on the 5th try is what it stays as. You must download software to flash the unit and if done wrong will brick the unit.

Hi i would like your help to open the region of BD-d7500-zf


There most likely isn't any easy-to-perform user setting that can open up the unit to multi-region capability. The entire reason for region codes was for anti-pirating issues in the first place. You can CHANGE the region code to allow you to play other regions DVDs and such, but most units are limited the 2 or 3 changes and then stay wherever they are. This allows users, if they relocate to another area, to make their unit compatible with the media in their new locale. If it were easy to unlock the units, then there is no purpose in the region restrictions in the first place. Most often, what you want to do requires a firmware hack that can be tricky to do, and can render you machine worthless is the hack you download and try fails.

How do i unlock my LG BH7520 blue ray dvd player to play multi region or region 2 thank you


With your set on and without disc in the tray:

1. Press PLAY from your remote control
2. Press the following button sequence: 1590 2379 390
3. Press PLAY again

This will release the region verification in your player(region free). However, some DVDs (multi region in particular) will not play, since they require region detection from the player unit.

  • 1
    Turn on your DVD player.

  • 2
    Open the DVD player's main drive, also commonly called the DVD "tray." The region cannot be changed while a DVD is in the machine, so many DVD players require the tray to be open as an extra precaution.

  • 3
    Push "Info" or "Setup" on your remote.

  • 4
    Use the remote to select the "Region" option as indicated on your TV screen.

  • 5
    Select "Region 9" to change the system to multiregion formatting. Regions 1 through 8 represent specific geographic locations and will not allow multiregion playback.

I cant unlock my ps2 console to watch a region 1 dvd and ive tried some unlocks but they wont work


make sure your console has the ability to read region 1 discs in the first place.
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.
The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs.

If you forgot the parental control code and you need to unlock that, though, then try this:
1.Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under
custom setup.

2.When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".

3.The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".

4.Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.

Is this a multi region dvd player, will dvds bought in US work


Any DVD player can be multi-region all you need to do is find the sequence of buttons and keys on the unit itself and the remote itself that unlocks the region code setting adjustment. Try putting the model number and the words "region code crack" into google or search on FixYa for it.
