Theres no way to safely undo the region code....without crushing your firmware. Your safe bet is to go to www.versiontracker.com and under Mac OS, look for VNC. Its free runs well, and forgets regions....see it *** an alternative if you region is locked.


Hope this helped.

Is there a code to change a Thomson TV DVD combo to multi region - Model L26D?


In a word....NO.

Only DVD's themselves can be multi-region (region code 0).

I always advise on this site that you NEVER change the region code on your DVD player! Here is why....

To prevent DVD copy piracy, every DVD player from EVERY manufacturer allows (if it is allowed at all) only TWO changes to the region code. A third attempt to change the region code permanently locks the player and turns it into a paperweight.

If you happen to be the rare exception to the rule.... that you have moved to a new place that requires you to change the region code to view locally purchased DVD's, then by all means change it ONCE to be able to use your DVD player. Please remember that you can only change it one more time after that though! You will unfortunately not be able to watch DVD's that are from your old region.

My compaq laptop says i cant change the region


You only can change this setting 5 times, then it is locked. You can not change the Region code after this even if you reinstall Windows, or move the drive to another computer. You can try upgrading the Firmware for the drive from the Compaq / HP Support page for your product. If that does not work, you will need to replace the drive, or download and install a Region Free software like AnyDVD or DVD Region Killer.

Laptop dvd drive region locked in R1, need to be mostly R2


keep in mind you can only change the region 5 times and cannot change it anymore after that (regarless to windows reinstallation , its a hardware thing) you might wanna consider purchasing "dvd region free" or use a 3rd party region free firmware to bypass that

Region code changes


You can always try the program called DVD Region Killer.
DVD Region Killer is a simple, small and easy-to-use software application that enablesyou to play DVD titles made for different regions on your PC, without the hassle to switch the region of your Windows operating system and / or the region of your DVD player software back and forth.

DVD Region Killer can reside unobtrusively in your system tray and you can access it easily only when you need it.

Acer Aspire 5920 DVD region locked!!!!!


Actually, the answer isn't nice at all. It's not the software, it's the drive itself. You can only change a drive's region 5 times before it is completely locked. I'm not sure if it's possible to flash the drive's bios and start from scratch, but I'd imagine if it were possible, you wouldn't want to do it yourself because it involved opening the drive itself. 
That sad thing about this is that you cannot change the code again, that disk drive is completely locked now. 
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. 
Caid.
