Some are listed at http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks but I can't see one for your brand. Google for your manufacturer and "hack" and you may find one.

Otherwise, if you have a DVD burner, you can back up the disc to a region-free version.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Not all players are going to have hacks. Hacking is not magic. In fact, almost all hacks are simply enabling "test" features already found on the unit. It's not so much that you're "adding" anything, but merely unlocking options already built into the machines. Some are hidden in special menus, some require hitting a certain combination of buttons on the remote. Others require a firmware update, maybe even a hardware adjustment to the unit or remote.

I think No region hack for this player.Better to update the firmware software. If it's not fix. Ask customer service for help....


Thanks
Good luck

You were told wrong. There is no unlock code. No hack code. The only way to play your dvds is to purchase a region free dvd player. That is the answer to your question..it can't be done.

"This DVD player is designed and manufactured to respond to the Region Management
Information. If the Region number of a DVD disc does not correspond to the Region
number of this DVD player, this DVD player cannot play the disc. The Region number
for this DVD player is Region No 1."
That is a direct quote from the user manual located on RCA's website. Your best bet will be to research a new DVD player that you know will be compatible with all of your needs. I hope you found this helpful and if you need any other assistance let me know.
Thanks,
Lee

    Well that is from the manual itself so.... If you just purchased it then you should be able to return it still. Most places have a 30 day return policy. Sometimes the best answer is not the most popular one. I hope you will reconsider your rating as you should have found someone helpful and therefore rate accordingly.
    Thanks,
    Lee

You can try this one:
Turn the player on and open the disc tray. Press [CLEAR] followed by [1][3][6][9] and one of the keys [0]...[8] corresponding to the region you want to set the player for (1 for Region 1, 2 for Region 2 and so on, press 0 for Region 0 or Region Free). Turn the player off then on again for the changes to take effect.

To verify the region code, press [SETUP] followed by [1][3][7][9]. A screen will then pop up with the firmware info and the current region code setting.

I have a Phillips DVDR70 player. It only plays dvds bought in UK. I have some dvd's I got from USA and can't play them. Is there any way to overide the operating system which will allow the Us dvd's to...


You need to unlock the player before it will play discs from other regions. UK has region 2 discs while the US has region 1.

Search on Google for your DVD model and unlock code.
Dial in the code using your remote and you should then be able to play any region discs from around the world.

How do I unlock my LG RC388 to play other region disks


YES, it can be changed to view all regions. I've just done my new RC388 (bought it 4 hours ago) and it works.

To start the hack:
Click the home button on the remote, go to the Setup page, highlight the 16X9 TV aspect ratio and enter in this coded sequence: 1 3 9 7 1 3 9

A new factory menu now comes up on the screen.

To change the values of these options hit the enter button and scroll with arrow keys until you get to the option you want to change. For the region code hack replace the value of "option 5" with the value of: ff

Press enter.

(Changing this value will set unit to region code 0 which should allow any region to be played on the player.)

Now, hit the "return" button to save and exit.

Switch off the machine - switch on - all is well now.

Good Luck,
Will
