    I am also having the same problem. Purchased a FX 810 from US and want to unlock it to be able to play DVDs from any region.

  • scott1982 Jun 10, 2008

    Welcomejee, the fx 820 that I bought from the states cannot playback all regions as you suggested. It can only play Zone 1 dvds whereas I would like to watch zone 2 dvds as well.



    Thanks. Scott

Hello,

Sony has designed this player so it cannot have the region code changed, it is hard wired into the board as part of their copy protection scheme.

Most users have rated this player as 'junk' (sorry to be the bearer of bad news) and should be replaced.

Maybe you can sell it on Ebay.

My suggestion is that the less expensive the player the better off you will be in the long run as the cheaper brands and models use DVD drives meant for PCs and Macs. More expensive models have proprietary drives, such as Sony, and cannot be manipulated and are not very versatile in recording media and or playing copyright hacked copies of DVDs even if you own the original DVD but has been scratched.

The courts are still trying to figure out these protection measures as they are not fair use in terms of you the owner of a DVD and wanting to make your own backup copy for the kids to use.

Regards,
Worldvet

Unlock code needed for Sony DVP FX-970


May I ask what code you are looking for. If it is a code to unlock the region to make it region free there is no code out yet. Also it is almost imposable to unlock portable DVD players.

Our DVP-FX820 DVD player is 16 months old. You can hear the sound when it plays but can't see a picture.


Please try adjusting the backlight. If the issue persists, try resetting the player. To reset the Portable DVD Player, remove the battery of the DVD Player, then reconnect it after 1 minute and check if it helps. If the issue still persists, then the player requires service.

Unlocking dvp-fx810 sony dvd player


The unlock method should work for DVD players bought in regions 1 (USA) and 3 (south East Asia)

You need to use a One4All Universal remote for regions 1 & 3

1. Switch on the player
2. Pop open the CD compartment
3. Enter the following code (using the remote): 2812
4. Highlight the region
5. Change to 9 (for Multi-region) using the 'Enter' button
6. Hit 'Clear' to exit
