Question about Panasonic DMR-EH57 HDD Recorder Player

Panasonic DMR EH57

Dear Rizla (?) Fixya (?)
I was told on purchase that this machine played any zone DVDs however it doesn't seem to play Region 1 (the cover of the manual indicates it does play 2,3,4 and 5). Is there a fix or a hack to get it to play Region 1? Others have asked this question but I can't seem to locate the answers on the main page. (If there are any).
Regards, Semaphoredm

    I also bought a panasonic DMR-EH57 (in swizerland) and I don't know how to unlock it to watch dvd's from all zones (for now I can only watch 2nd zones).

A Panasonic technician can unlock it to play all regions - just had mine done in NZ.

Go into the Panasonic website for your country: just type www.panasonic and your country code on the end eg. .com for US, .com.au for Australia, etc into your browser window. Then you should be able to look up service agents online. Failing this, just call up the .com one, and there should be links to other countries).
Otherwise, just e-mail Panasonic (look on the website under contact information) and ask them.

Thanks - I eventually found a solution using a OneTouch universal remote which unlocked it. Now it works fine.

I've heard that a Panasonic technician can "unlock" this to play all regions. How to locate one I don't know though...

send it or take it to your local authorised panasonic service center, they can normally do it while you wait. If it is under 12 months old then panasonic will normally pay for this, otherwise a small fee can apply, so if you are unsure on who is your local service, either give panasonic a call or check out there website.

I sent an e-mail to Panasonic New Zealand to ask about this, and they advised:
"Panasonic NZ no longer pre set DVD recorders or players for all region multi-zones.
However, we will multi-zone for all regions on request. This needs to be done by an Authorised Service Centre, as a special service remote is used. Once delivered to one of these agents, the service company will charge the fee to Panasonic NZ."

If you're not in NZ, try contacting Panasonic in your own country. Just call up www.panasonic with your country code after eg. US = .com and NZ = .co.nz. It seems a *lot* easier than all those complicated hacks on the net. Now all I have to do is work out how to disconnect my DVD recorder again, and try to
