Question about Televison & Video
Need tio unlock dvd region
Just bought THOMSON DV2137 in Australia (region 4) It plays Aus but not US. A small slip in the user's manual gave these (verbatim) instructions. UNFORTUNATELY it isn't working on my player."This unit has been set to play region 4 DVD discs. If you wish to use this unit outside of region 4 territory you can change the region setting by following the instructions below.1) Turn on the unit.2) Remove disc and press SETUP to enter SETUP menu.3) Press VOL+.VOL-,VOL+,VOL-, by order, then press MUTE to enter Region Code setting. [stays in SETUP menu]4) Press LEFT / RIGHT to choose between 1-4 or ALL region."
Perhaps this will work for someone else or will trigger a clue.

Like you my Thomson DV2137 came with the instructions on a slip of paper in the box.
This is what I do.
Remove dvd from tray, close tray, and turn off.
This next bit seems to be time sensitive, and you have about 3 seconds, so make sure you know where the vol and mute buttons are.
press setup vol+, vol-, vol+, vol- mute
that brings up a screen with the region settings. Use left/right buttons to select the zone you want, or use ALL.
open the tray and insert dvd.
Sadly this seems to be a temporary fix, and when the machine is turned off it returns to the default.

SOURCE: unlock regional code
I found the solution here.
Region code hack posted by vassmanov, March 23 2009:
Press the Pause button on your remote control. Using your remote control enter the code 3,1,4,1,5 and 9, At this point, a blue screen displays showing that you are in 'region altering mode'. Press the 0 button on your remote control for Region free. Press the Pause button on your remote control. Power off your player and wait a few seconds. Power on your player and your ready to go!
It worked for me (after a few false starts)

SOURCE: Unlock codes
This player is manufactured by the Funai Corporation for Magnavox. This is a very basic DVD player.
After speaking with the Funai Corporation Support Line, they have no problem giving out region hack codes for other models they make such as Symphonic, Emerson, as long as the user understands if you make a mistake and something happens, not their fault, etc.. For this basic player - No codes exist. Sorry..
