Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
New users get to try the service completely Free afterwhich it costs $6 per call and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
Goodluck!

Th following hack should work for your model but you'll need a One For All Universal Remote Control.

This hack is written using a URC 8305 Kameleon 5 and should make the DVD Region Free but you can't change the Blu Ray to Zone Free.

The buttons on the Remote can be very sensitive and it's easy to press the buttons for too long once you have programmed and send the same code twice. For this reason set the 1 to 0 key press sequence up as a Macro on the RED button.

1) select DVD device on remote
2) hold magic button until the DVD button blinks twice
3) enter device code 0490 (DVD button blinks twice)
program buttons with the following codes:
1 - 00191
2 - 00120
3 - 00065
4 - 00180
5 - 00143
6 - 00155
7 - 00122
8 - 00117
9 - 00129
0 - 00123
4) hold magic button until the DVD button blinks twice
5) press 994 (DVD button blinks twice) (KeyMagic on a Kameleon)
6) press magic
7) enter 5 digit code from above
8) press button (1,2,3 etc..) where to program it (DVD button blinks twice)
9) press ESC on the Kameleon
10) repeat steps 1 to 6 for all keys.

Switch on DVD player, make sure theirs no disc in it.
Press the One For all Remote buttons in the following sequence
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0

If all works ok the Blu Ray player will reboot and when its finished it will not actually tell you its region free, just simply try it with different region DVDs.

SOURCE: Hello trying to upgrade my HCT HBR-1000BP Blu-ray Player firmware and can not figure out how. No support on HCT website. Would be thankful for any help

Where are you having a problem? I found directions on: http://hcthk.com/mall/s02.php . There were two links, one with directions and one with an arrow for downloading the needed file.

The firmware is in a zip file. First extract the files from the compressed archived. (For a Windows OS, right click on the folder and select Extract All.) If needed, open the new uncompressed folder and put a blank CD-R or CD-RW in your optical burner drive. Burn the two files from the extracted folder to the CD (drag and drop will work for any version of Windows (XP-7).) Do not include the folder, just the files. Then finalize the disc (close the session). If you are asked to format the disc, choose a mastered burn (single-session). In Windows Explorer, you can do this by right-clicking on the optical drive in Computer (My Computer) or from the menu for the drive when you double-click on it. (Alternatively, if you have your system set to finalize on eject, then choose Eject. This setting is in the drive's Properties (the Recording tab).)

Eject the disc from your computer and turn on the HBR-1000BP. Place the CD that you burned in the player. When the disc is recognized, press Play. If that doesn't work, try entering the System Menu and choosing System Update with your remote. Do not power down the unit during the update; a power failure during the update might leave you with an unusable player.

If this doesn't work, check if the Blu-ray Player reads any CDs. If it doesn't, try cleaning the laser lens with a CD/DVD lens cleaner. Then try again. The Blu-ray uses a different laser. If no disc works and the lens cleaner doesn't help, the CD/DVD laser has a tracking (alignment) issue or another problem. You'll need to get the optical drive in the HBR-1000BP replaced or fixed.

If it does read a different CD, then check if your optical disc burned and was finalized correctly. Can another optical drive read it? Try burning the files to CD on another optical drive. (If you are using an external optical drive burner, make sure that the computer is not running on battery power. Plug the external drive into two USB ports if it isn't self-powered.)

I hope this helps.

Wrong region


probably you are trying to play a disc that is not zone free or you need a code for your player to make it zone free. you may be playing a zone 2 disc ( PAL) on a machine that only takes zone 1 (NTSC) or vica-versa.

Are you in the US? Your TV system is NTSC. The player possibly plays NTSC and PAL(European system) discs on PAL TVs only. Try to find out from the user manual of the DVD player if you can change the output signal to NTSC. Now it is PAL even though you are playing NTSC discs.

It's already Region Free when purchased.

  • A+B+C Multi Zone Region Code Free Blu Ray Player DVD Region 123456 PAL/NTSC

  • PAL or MULTI-SYSTEM TV is required to watch PAL DVDs. If your TV was purchased in North America (NTSC) you will also need a Video Scaler Full HD 1080p.
