Question about Computers & Internet
DVDs are released at different times in different regions of the world and are embedded with region codes. These DVD codes correspond to the coding used in DVD players in the region, so that only the DVDs from the region play in locally-sold DVD players. Though region coding is useful for DVD manufacturers, it can be a nuisance for movie lovers who want to purchase a DVD from another country. It is often possible to unlock & decode DVD player region codes though, so that your DVD player can play DVD discs from any region.
To unlock your player
Find the unlock code for your Sony DVD player model. The DVD Demystifiziert and Video Help websites both provide unlock codes for Sony players that can be unlocked and made region-free. To view the code for your DVD player, click on the model of your DVD player in the Sony hack list on the website.
Perform the tasks included in the unlock code. For most Sony models that can be unlocked, the unlock code is not as simple as pressing a few buttons. You may need to open the tray on the player or power the unit on and off multiple times as part of the hack.
Turn the unit off and then on again after you have entered your unlock code, even if the code doesn't include this step. Once you power the unit back on, it should be region-free and should be able to read any DVD that you insert in the tray.
Keep in mind that unlocking a Sony DVD player almost always voids the unit's warranty.
Unlock codes for more than 6,000 DVD player models can be found online at Videohelp.com
