As with many Sony models, there is no way to hack the region coding on your model, sorry. This applies to both the DVD and Blu-Ray region coding.

But if you have a Blu-Ray drive fitted to your pc, you can use a program like DVD Fab to make a back-up copy of your Blu-Ray disc which strips out all of the region coding and copy protection. The copied disc can then be used on any machine.

Note that this may be illegal in your country; it's up to you to ensure local legal compliance. It's also illegal in the UK where I live, but in practice there's no problem as long as I don't use the software to distribute unlicensed copies and provided that I destroy/delete copies when I dispose of the original disc.

Hello,

the problem is either from your firmware or laser(lens) of the player.

First, do a firmware update on your player and if that doesn't solve the problem, then maybe the laser (lens) is weak or dirty, that's why it cannot play or discs.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to cleans the lens and if the lens refuse to play all discs, then maybe you need to replace the lens.

Good luck.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. You can try these three methods to make it region free---


METHOD 1

1. While there is no disk in the player switch it on and press 'Pause' button on the remote. Now enter '314159' on the remote and Code will appear on the display. Now enter '0' to make it region free. Press 'Pause' button again on the remote and power the player off and then back on and it will become region free.


METHOD 2

First of all without any disk in the player press 'setup' on remote control and move down to the 'lock' picture. Now press '0000000' and when congratulation message appears select 'Ok' button, switch off the player and then back on to make it region free.


METHOD 3

Without disk inside the player turn it on and open the disk tray. Now push '0' button thrice on the remote and push the pause button on the player. Now push '0 button on the remote and close the DVD tray and the player off and back on to make it region free.


Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

Hello

You can set your BDP-S570 region free in case of playing DVD discs from all regions. But making region free to Blu-Ray discs is yet to come. To make it region free, you must have a special remote mentioned below. With its original remote, this cannot be done. All the proceedings are given.

To make BDP-S570 Region Free for DVD play.

This hack is the same as for the S370, 360, and S550
and uses the "One For All Kameleon 6 " or URC-7950 remote
[Please note the remote control model need to make it region free]

11. Press 1 (The IR indicator bars flash twice)

12. Press [KEY MAGIC]
13. Press [DVD]
14. Press (but don't hold) the [Magic Hat] button
15. Press 00255
16. Press 2 (The IR indicator bars flash twice)

17. Press [KEY MAGIC]
18. Press [DVD]
19. Press (but don't hold) the [Magic Hat] button
20. Press 00095

29. Press (but don't hold) the [Magic Hat] button
30. Press 00079
31. Press 5 (The IR indicator bars flash twice)

32. Press [ESC]

The remote is now programmed and ready to use, to make the BDP-S570 region free:

Then Comes the region free setting procedure

1. Use the remote that came with the player to bring the player out of standby, make sure there isn't a disc in it. It should read "HOME" on the front panel.
