Question about Sony BDP-S470 Blu-ray Disc Player

1 Answer

My multi-region Sony BDP-470 3D Blu-ray player has had an update and now isn't multi-region for DVDs. How can I get it back to play all DVDs?

    Thanks for that.....I guessed it might be something serious! I also made a mistake (cos I was reading about the BDP 470). It's actually the Sony BDV E970. Do you have a link for restoring that?

    Cheers, Ed

The update has wiped the hack - you will have to redo it. For that you will need a special remote, either an official service one (it will cost you around $150 and it will be extremely hard to find) or an One For All URC-7950

Then you will have to follow this

And from now on you shouldn't update it anymore or eventually the hack will become nonfunctional - in the end they will close the software option that allows for the region change.

    That is a totally different model, you can use only a service remote on it. Get one preprogrammed from here

    This model is very similar with what you have so the hack should work.

Why is it a sony BDP-S1200 not play DVD discs but can play blue ray discs?


Check that you are playing the correct region coded discs for your player. Blu-Ray discs tend to be universal but not DVDs. If you are playing Region2 disc when the player is set for region 1 (American) then they won't play and again Vice Versa.

How to turn a sony bdp-s790 dvd multi region


Buy two players. One from each region.
If you ave an NTSC TV only, you will also need a PAL to NTSC converter, if you want to play UK PAL DVD`s on US or Asian TV`s. But I think all Euro/UK TV`s are all both color signals (PAL & NTSC).

I have a Sony Blue Ray player BDP-S560 I bought in AUstralia which I thought was multi region but I find it will not play Blue Ray discs from the US. Is there an update for the player which makes it...


im not sure if there are updates... because i dont think sony players have the ability to have internet connection...

but, i found myself in near enough the same problem...

i brought my panasonic Blu Ray player from the UK, (i live in the UK) (not knowing at the time what multi region was) and brought a few of my DVD's of ebay which were from canada and america...

so i did a search for any adaptable hardware i can plug into maybe a USB slot and i found a MULTI REGION REMOTE from ebay around

My Sony Blu ray can't play normal DVDs in my region - Africa. How do I change the region coding just for DVDs?


It's not possible to change the region code in the Blu-ray Player.

BD media does have region codes. But, unlike current DVD players, the region codes for BD media use letters instead of numbers to indicate a particular zone or region where the discs can be played.

The BD region codes are as follows:
Region A: North America, South America, U.S. Territories, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia

Region B: Europe, Africa, Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.

Region C: Asia (except for Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia)
