Question about Toshiba BDX1100 Player

1 Answer

Hi there!! I recently purchased a Toshiba blu ray player, model bdx1100ky, not realising that it is not region free. I have many region 1 and 2 dvds and I now live in region 4. this blu ray player will only play region 4. I have found a section in the menu asking for a four digit password. Without that password it looks like I cannot access anything to change the region. I found a factory code (8520) and a box appeared,but even in there it would not let me do anything,it just kept asking for the four digit password. Is there a way to make this player region free or am I stuck with it?? The one help on here with a link only leads to a site where you can buy region free players, so this does not help if, like me, you have already purchased the player. please help me if you can!! kind regards, Elizabeth. :(

To make the Bluray section of the player region free one has to modify the internal hardware , for which some additional electronics has to be inserted in your machine ( approx: cost $ 100 ) by a professional who would charge you an additional fee. Liz my advice to you is for 100$ you can buy region A bluray players from the internet !!!. Now I don't know if in your part of the world they would deliver it. Or ask somebody to get it for you.

    I don't think the question was answered. I understood that the question refers to Elizabeth's DVD collection (and the reference to R4 which is a DVD region). Your answer was Bluray related which is different.

Model# SD-V296-K-TU Is this DVD player region free?


I do not believe this is a region-free DVD player. I believe it only plays Region 1 or All commercial discs. The manual for the SD-V296 is available from Toshiba here: http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/support/manuals/userguides/su2810535/SD-V296_OM.pdf .

I hope this helps.

My toshiba blu-ray model is bdx1100kb any hack code for it


New Region Free firmware (February 2012) for BDX1100 is now available on ebay with shipping worldwide. This makes your player region free for DVD's and multi region for Blu-ray. It also corrects playback issues with existing Firmware and is not available for download from any Toshiba websites.

Not rearly a problem is there an unlock code for this player to make it region free


Sony Blu Ray models are unhackable, as are most other makes. Most Blu Ray players reported as being hackable can only have the DVD region coding removed, not the Blu Ray coding.

Unfortunately, your Toshiba model is also an example of an unhackable DVD player. Many Toshiba, Sony and Panasonic (and others) models cannot realistically be made multi-region, sorry.

I recently purchased a DVD which is Region 1, we are Region 4 and the DVD will not play on our AWA Combination DVD/VCR. Any suggestions?


Search google for region-free/multi-region codes codes as well as your DVD Player Model

e.i.: AWA DVDS203 region free codes
e.i.: AWA DVDS203 unlock region

Replace "DVDS203" with whatever model your DVD Player is.

Do not pay for codes! The unlock method may be simply typing some stuff into your remote or having to download firmware upgrades, burn to CD and play on the DVD Player.

Warning: Unlocking DVD Players MAY void some warranties!!
