Just tried the hack posted on VideoHelp on my 397D player and it worked straight off:

1. press home on remote
2. scroll to setup options
3. scroll to lock (DO NOT SCROLL SIDEWAYS)
4. press zero seven times (message appears)
5. press enter

Here is the official software from LG to unlock region codes on all RH 3xx series HDD players.

1. Go to http://hk.lge.com/support/support_lgeservice.jsp
2. Go to "Product Support"
3. On the left panel, find "Device Drive", then "DVD Player/Recorder".
4. Download the "RH3xx.iso" from the linked page.
5. Burnt ISO to a CD (must be burnt as an image, use free software such as ImgBurn http://www.imgburn.com/)
6. Load CD onto the LG player
7. You will be prompted to choose a new region code - go with 0 for region-free

I think this will be the last option to unlock this player. Hope this finally solves your region problem.

My LG RH397D will not play a disk. It gives a navigation error.


Does not play disc

  1. No disc. - Load a disc into the tray.

  2. Disc has been loaded upside down. Place the disc with the label side up.

  3. Disc region code does not match region code of the player.

  4. Disc type is not the correct type to play.

  5. Disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc or try another.

  6. Moisture may be condensed inside the unit. Remove the disc and the leave the power on for one or two hours.

    See the diagram attached.and if the problem persist. Lube the plastic parts with small grease or vaseline very carefully

Can't play USB MP4 on LG RH397D


The LG RH397D only supports MP3/WMA/JPEG/DivX image and audio files from a USB drive. There is no firmware update that changes the supported file types. You will need to convert the MP4 to a supported format. The manual for the RH397D is available from LG: http://www.lg.com/au/support-product/lg-RH397D# /

I wish that I had better news for you.

My LG RH397D HDD wont recognise dvds any more


The only thing you can do is try a DVD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if that fails the laser pickup assembly will need to be replaced, but this would be to expensive and far cheaper to replace the player.

What do I do to make my LG RH397D regeion free?


Hi there,

Try the following method.

Using the factory supplied remote:

1. Press 'home' button
2. Scroll to 'setup options'
3. Scroll to 'lock' (don't scroll sideways)
4. Press the following button sequence: 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 (message appears)
5. Press 'enter'

When attempting to play other region discs, it may take a few seconds for the firmware to recognize the disc.


Hope this helps...

I need to unlock the regional code on my DVD player


The code I found from a trusted website says:
  1. Press SETUP
  2. Scroll down to the padlock icon
  3. Press 0 seven times
    • Confirmation message appears
  4. Press ENTER
Which sounds like what you're doing already. This is for RH399D. RH397D may be different.
