Hello Jose,

Although the solutions listed were from 2008, no firmware updates were issued for this player. The seven zeroes code should work for your player, unless you bought a later version of the player with different firmware for which this unlock code doesn't work. I'm not aware of any later versions.

I would advise you to try again and follow my instructions below very carefully. Sometimes the instructions given for unlocking DVD players are badly explained and/or miss a vital step.

LG DR389 Region Code / Hack

1. Switch on the TV and DVD recorder
2. Switch the TV to the correct input for the DVD player
3. OPEN the disc tray (and leave it open)
4. Press HOME on the LG remote
5. Open the SETUP menu
6. Highlight the PADLOCK icon but do not press the right arrow / enter the right side of the menu.
7. Enter 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 (seven zeroes)

A message should display on the TV screen to say "This player is now Region Free"

8. Switch the player to STANDBY/OFF (don't unplug it) then power on again.

It may take a couple off attempts to unlock the player. If it doesn't work, switch the player off, go back to step 1 and start again. If you are still unable to unlock your player, please let me know and I'll check for any other known unlock methods for this player.

Regards,
BElectric

    Jose -



    The seven zeroes code is the unlock method for this player. There are no other region hacks. If it doesn't work, you are either not doing it correctly, or you have a player with updated firmware and your player cannot be unlocked.



    Not all players can be unlocked.



    Gopakumarg -



    The model number is there. It's been there for 4 weeks. Please try unlocking questions before answering as this will allow you to see any comments which have been posted.

Hi, well what you can do for SOME DVD is one can get a Region Code Hack, that will allow one to do as you wish. However NOT all players can be changed.
http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks
This link above will allow you to get a code if there are any, also one can use Google and ask for a hack, simply Google name and model and the words region code hack, and see if there are any?

Dvd recorder won't play disc


your recorder will normally give you 5 changes at different regions, and on the last region change that is the one that it stays on, although if you you have never changed the region go to> my computer>right click on your dvd drive>properties and on the hardware tab, your hard drive and dvd drive will show, highlight your dvd drive and click properties and click the dvd regions tab and look at the region to see wot its set at, if you still have 5 changes, it should be set at your region one, if there are no changes left you need to search and download a region free dvd programme to allow any region dvd to be played programme

Need to play region 1 DVD in region 2


I just got a RH387H in Hong Kong, region 3, but the above method doesn't work, this model has slightly different icon, no "lock" icon, I tried in other similar location but no effect, hopefully someone will provide a method.
