Hi.

Apparently there is no hack for this player (read here: Sony DVP-FX820).

Other Sony DVP models can be hacked using the instructions here.

One user reported this for unlockable SonyDVP:

"I have an improvised way to watch most dvds (of various regions) in my sony dvp fx810
I turn on the dvd
put the cd in
then press 1 and enter repeatedly. By doing so the dvd player starts playing the dvd starting at chapter 1. Sometimes one can enter into the menu, sometimes one can't. In some cases you are able to watch the film but the remote buttons (such as fast foward and rewind) do not work for that specific film. Again it is an improvised way, but I've been managing to watch many films this way. "

From:DVD help

Good luck.

Ginko.

1. Switch on the player
2; Pop open the CD compartment
3. Enter the following code (using the remote): 2812
4. Highlight the region
5. Change to 9 (for Multi-region) using the 'Enter' button
6. Hit 'Clear' to exit
That should be enough.

Unlocking Sony DVP-FX820 portable dvd


Hello,

Sony has designed this player so it cannot have the region code changed, it is hard wired into the board as part of their copy protection scheme.

Most users have rated this player as 'junk' (sorry to be the bearer of bad news) and should be replaced.

Maybe you can sell it on Ebay.

My suggestion is that the less expensive the player the better off you will be in the long run as the cheaper brands and models use DVD drives meant for PCs and Macs. More expensive models have proprietary drives, such as Sony, and cannot be manipulated and are not very versatile in recording media and or playing copyright hacked copies of DVDs even if you own the original DVD but has been scratched.

The courts are still trying to figure out these protection measures as they are not fair use in terms of you the owner of a DVD and wanting to make your own backup copy for the kids to use.

Regards,
Worldvet
