    There must be a software solution to remove the region code as it is the software that checks the disk in the first place. Previous DVD's required a seqence of buttons to be pushed.

  • dferguson912 Sep 15, 2010

    Yes. I now understand what I am up against and the software option is a reasonable one. Thanks you

    I prefer your software solution ( using US software version ) rather than the hardware. Thank you

Hi.

There is no region code for this player. Eg. see:Sony BDP-S300 region code .
The player may still be made region free by having it chipped by companies like www.mrmdvd.com(UK)or purchasing a Sony BDP-S300 DVD modification kit.

    Hi.

    Manufacturers use region codes to protect copyright. The region change is not endorsed by brands. Althought region changing is not illegal, most manufacturers do their best to make units that are not easy to hack. Many units are simply hackable because the manufacturer wants to keep production cost low, making different chips is more expensive than using a programmable single EEPROM.Some company does not care much abot region and manufactures model that can be hacked from service menu, or region free players.

    Sony BDP cannot be hacked with a code.

    There is also another way to change the region, but this will not make the unit multiregion. If you update the firmware to a different version the player will take the firmware update region. Here the frmware for region 1 US. You will loose current settings. This may also affect warranty status. If upgrade is interrupted or the disk is defective you may damage the unit.
    Here US firmware.

    Here a search with firmware pages from different zones. I suggest using this only if you cannot use the BRD player because of foreign country settings.
