I Tried this on a completely different LG model te LG DV276 and instead of pressing "0" seven times you only press it 3 times, then you can change the region code to 1 and back to 2 or whatever you want.

To make the unit play all regions do the following: 1. Put in a DVD that will play (in our case region 2) 2. When it starts playing, press eject 3. While the drawer is open press "0" seven times 4. When you get the "Congrats" press Enter and done! Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Wrong region


probably you are trying to play a disc that is not zone free or you need a code for your player to make it zone free. you may be playing a zone 2 disc ( PAL) on a machine that only takes zone 1 (NTSC) or vica-versa.

Im wondering if anyone know how to turn off the region zone for a Sony DVP-FX750. It was purchased in america with a zone 1 & we have zone 4 in Australia. I've tried to burn a DVD to play, but...


This question is one of my most frequent on FixYa.

There is no "region-free" or "region 0" setting for any DVD player/recorder. Only DVD media can be region free. Every single offer to set a player or recorder to region free that I am familiar with has been a scam. The reason for this is to prevent DVD piracy.

Most DVD players and recorders (SONY included) have provisions for making a maximum of THREE changes to their region code. A fourth attempt at changing the region code will result in the player/recorder being turned into a paperweight.

Bkhopkins- in your case, you will be able to change your region code from region 1 (USA) to region 4 (AUS). Doing so will leave your player with 2 more changes, maximum. Check your manual for the procedure and the exact number of changes you are allowed. Please be aware that after you change to Region 4, any Region 1 DVD's will not be viewable unless you switch back, which will use another of your three changes.

You have an alternative to salvage your DVD's by downloading a program called DVD Shrink. This program is capable of removing the region code from your DVDs and saving them as region-free at the sacrifice of some quality. You will at least the be able to view your US DVD's without sacrificing a region code change on your player.

Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

I live in Australia but i can not play some DVDs. Do I need and area code? what is the area code and how do I apply it to my samsung? Thanks Andrew


Some 'branded' DVD/Blue Ray players will not allow you to play DVD that are not 'coded' for the DVD player target country. As a rule, nothing to do with modern Television set.

If possible, you need to 'unlock' the player to be 'Zone free' ; just google your model with those key words ...

Might actually be easier to buy a cheap multi-zones/zone-free player ....

Hope it helps.

Zone 1 not playing on dvd recorder


Type the model number and the words 'Region Code changing' into the advance search of Google. You should change it to '0' if it will let you.
