Switch on the unit, open the tray but don't put any disk on it. press 0 on the remote, regional code info appears on the tv screen, it gives you the current code. Scroll down to change regional code- selct 0 for all regions. hit pause to exit. switch off the unit and wait for a moment. then test.

    Jcamp1592948, you star! Absolutely spot on, just keep the zero down for a few seconds.

    what worked for me is this:

    1) switch on and open tray
    2) press 0 3 times, the regional code winfo will appear
    3) type 0 and hit pause to exit
