I found this on the net:

Try this, there are 2 versions of this set, one of these will work.

14PT6107

ENTER 062596 ON REMOTE
WITHIN 5 SECS PRESS MENU
SERVICE MENU SHOULD APPEAR
SELECT DVD
PRESS ENTER

OPTION 1 USE RIGHT BUTTON TO SELECT REGION "ALL"
NOW PRESS MENU 3 TIMES TO EXIT

OPTION 2 TYPE 00 PRESS OK
THEN MENU THREE TIMES
GO IN TO STANDBY AND POWER BACK UP

Option 2 worked for me. The thing I was failing to do was going in and out of 'standby'.
Also there is no 'all' instead 00 = 'all'

Dvd wrong region


Not all DVD players can be used in different regions, yes there is a code you can use to enable use in different regions depending on the unit. If you access the "setup" menu from your remote you may be able to select the region but I believe this player is only supports US NTSC TV standard if you bought it in the USA and JPG for photos.

Can't play dvd--wrong region


Commercial DVDs are released with region codes that restricts in which part of the world they can be played. Consumer DVD players sold in those regions are pre-configured with the correct region code for the given sales area. The United States, Canada, Bermuda, and U.S. territories are region 1. Europe (except Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus), The Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Greenland and region 2.

I WANT TO CONVERT MY TOSHIBA SD501 KB DVD PLAYER INTO A MULTI-REGION PLAYER. HOW CAN I ACCOMPLISH THIS TASK?


Hi,
On most of the DVD players regional set up cannot be changed.However just for trying; type your players brand and model number into goggle along with 'hack code' and you should be able to find some codes to change the region code on your player.You need to find the correct 'Hack' for your model.
Google 'DVD Hacks', there are many sites out there that will provide the details.
It generally consists of pressing a secret sequence of buttons on the remote.
Like holding the mute button down and simultaneously pressing 6758, they are all different.
It then enters a special mode where you can change the DVD region or make it region free.
In my experience the major brands like Sony, Sharp, JVC, Toshiba,Panasonic etc are harder to change, I guess the major players do not want copyright issues.
The cheaper DVD players as unbranded, or never heard of, are better.They are all "MULTI REGION " or "region free "players play any region dvd.

-------
additional info for DVD regions:
DVD region codes are a digital-rights management technique
designed to allow film distributors to control aspects of a release, including
content, release date, and price, according to the region.DVD video discs may be
encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can
be played.

The American DVD Copy Control Association in California requires that DVD-player
manufacturers incorporate the regional-playback control (RPC) system - according
to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, an Australian government
agency.

There are six different official regions and two informal variations.[citation
needed] DVDs may use one code, a combination of codes (Multi-Region), most
codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). The commercial DVD player
specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs
encoded for a different region; however, region-free DVD players are also
commercially available.

I bought a DVD from the U.K., but it's not working on my DVD at home. I live in the U.S. I need some help. How do you make a foreign DVD work on our models?


The answer is generally you cannot. The recording industry refused to produce DVDs until the DVD player manufacturers agreed to a regional system, whereby DVD players sold in a particular region could only play DVDs marked for that region or marked "Universal" or "Region Code 0" (this is supposedly to discourage illegal copying). Your best bet is to use a computer DVD player set up for Region 2 (US is Region 1), then connect the video output of the computer to the monitor input of the TV if your TV has one (either VGA or DVI), or just watch it on your computer.

Earlier models of DVD players would allow you to change the region up to five times, but would permanently lock in the region set on the fifth change. Newer models don't even have that option because it was relatively easy to hack the region change counter. There is an "under-the-counter" DVD player hacking industry in Europe, but there is little demand for that in the US - partly because US recording industry lawyers can be even more bothersome and expensive to deal with than European bureaucrats, and partly because few people here obtain out-of-region discs.

The DVD player will not play anything. It says invalid region.


Then you have a DVD player that is either not designed to be sold in your region or DVD's that are for a specific region and not for the country you reside in. If you want to be able to play any video buy a multi region DVD player, not a locked to a region one! You may be able to find an unlock code, but oif its an unknown brand you're stuck!

Lg dvdcombo region codes


I have just hacked an LG 32LG4000 combo tv/dvd. To open up the dvd to multi region, turn on the tv & press the menu/set up button. Next, navigate to the lock symbol but do not open the sub menu. Press 0 seven times. Exit out of the menu, and your 'on board' dvd player will play dvd's from any region!
