This just worked on mine - I have this exact model.

- Press the "home" button
- Go into "Setup - Start"
- Scroll down to the "Lock" icon
- Press the number "0" seven times

a thing comes up on the screen saying it's successful or something.

I believe this works for other LG models as well.

Cheers :)

Can't read DVD+R that were recorded on LG-DR389 on my PC / Laptop DVD

The DVD+R is the older version that was used, all newer ones use the DVD-R now, your problem is the disc is not recognized in the other players because of the different format.

The short answer is, you can't. The long answer is that a very few units have secret settings menus that will allow you to do this. However, even with this ability the drive will only allow you to change your region 3 times before becoming permanently locked to the last selected region. If you have a PC, it is much easier to buy a drive and change its firmware to allow any disc to be played. Once you do this, you can take any disc you own and re-burn it on your PC as a region 1 disc which will play in your unit. I do this all the time because some movies I buy from the UK were not released in the USA.
