Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

DMR-EZ485V Does anyone know of a region unlock code? I have searched high and low on the internet and I'm about to give up watching my movies from England and Germany on my new Region 1 DVD player I got for my birthday.

    I have a remote that is universal downstairs that i can temporarially re-program. It's one of the kameleon all in one remotes....

    Any help would be awesome.

    This code does not want to work for this DVD player. It automatically assumes that I want to change the channel to "1234". Any ideas?

  • M_Carr Jul 23, 2008


    I tried a One For All remote (URC-8810) and it still thinks that I am trying to change the channel. I also tried going to the setup mode, this did nothing as well.

    Were there any directions as to where to start pressing the numbers? Because mine definately thinks I just want to change the channel way too much.

    Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it!

    I recently purchased DVD's from an online auction that originated in England. They are from Region 2 and the guy said that these DVD's are universal and can be played on any DVD player. I have since discovered that is not true. I have also become aware that there are "codes" that can be entered on your remote that will allow these DVD's to be played on your current player. Is there a site that gives these codes free of charge or is there an adapter available somewhere? Thanks for any help.

    I'm having the same problem with this player. I downloaded the CCF file and imported it to work with a universal remote control mx-900. No success.

There is an unlock code for this player.
It involves purchasing a One for all universal remote control.
Let me know when you,ve purchased the universal remote.
And i,ll instruct you on how to make the player region-free or multi-region.

    thanks for the rating.

    I have access to a database, which supplies dvd unlocking codes. with a one for all universal remote control.

    Power on the DVD player, without any DVD in the Tray.

    Press The Buttons ** with a small pause between each Number **

    Wait for 1-2 Minutes. Power Off the DVD And then back on Again.

    The DVD Should now be region-free. try by playing a dvd from a different region. ** Please note i do have to pay a subscription to this site for information ** and therefore make a small charge for this information.

    However as there are several requests, for this specific Player.

    I have supplied this information, ****Free Of Charge****

    Mike @ Compurepair.

    it states on my codes site. that it has to be a one for all remote control. perhaps thats the problem.

    i,ve listed the unlock instructions, as per the download site.

    with the prices of dvd players nowadays, it might be more cost effective. to purchase a new multi-region dvd player.

    retailing at approx $50 i usually find the cheaper the better.

    i,ll keep searching the database for further information for you.

    Mike @ Compurepair.

Sounds like your firmware has been scrambled. This can cause your region code to be changed. Call Panasonic tech support and describe your problem. They may be able to talk you through checking your region code over the phone. The process is simple. If your region code is different than the region you are in, your firmware needs to be updated to correct this problem.

Unlock Code for DVD - DMR-EX75

Sometimes, hitting "1" on your remote when it's loading bypasses the region sector and allows the movie to be played without functionality of menus. If that doesn't work you can either play it on your computer or search for software that'll put the movie onto your harddrive taking region block off and with the right knowhow back it up onto a dvd blank that'll work. Though if you aren't good with computers, the best way is to buy a cheap $20-$50 dvd player that can be remote programmed to be region free or buy your machine from any Chinatown store.
