Partial solution...

Without a DVD in the player - eject the tray

1). Press Setup ensure you are showing 'General' tab
2). Enter 1389

At this point a list comes up with all sorts of info. At the bottom is Region Code 2. But I'm stumped as to how to change it. I've tried all different key combinations I can think of. On other Mikomi players except the ds-306a (the Argos is a rebadged Mikomi ds-306a)
you can then use the up or down arrows and cycle throw the region nunbers until you get to region 0. Odd that it doesn't seem to work on ds-306a. Perhaps someone else can figure the final steps out

Thank you acorndave
Your code worked perfectly, i just used the up and down arrows to change region (region 0 for multi region) and pressed enter.

All region discs are working :)

thanks again:)

I can only commiserate with all the people above. I also bought a mikomi from Argos as a treat for Christmas and I have found it impossible to find any region codes online so I can watch Region 1 dvds from the USA. Incredibly Mikomi doesn't seem to have an online website to go to - unbelievable!
So there seems to be no solution. I can only advise that people complain to the place where they bought and tell their friends never ever to buy Mikomi!

Need the hack to make argos dvd model ds-306a multi region

Yours is a rebadged Mikomi model. Whilst it's possible to access the technical page which shows the region code, you cannot actually change it without a special servicing remote control.

Unfortunately, for a cheap no-name brand like Mikomi it's actually cheaper to just buy another DVD player which can be hacked without any special equipment. Service remotes are very expensive to buy and if you can find a company which rents them out the typical charge costs as much as your DVD player cost to buy.

Sorry, but not all DVD players can realistically be made multi-region and yours is one of them.

Unlock region codes

Go to enter your machine's model number, hit search, then scroll down and look to your right- If there is a region free hack for it they will have it...If it is a new model, you might want to check back with them in a month.

I have managed to find the menu with the region code. Its the same as the hack for the Acoustic Solutions DVD237.

Without a DVD in the player
1). Press Setup
2). Enter 1389

Now at this point the menu appears and the hack says the arrow keys should allow you to change the region code but doesn't on my machine.

Unlocking an argos mikomi ds-306

Eject the disk drive then press the setup button.

On the 'general' tab press 1389.

That should then bring you to a page where you can change the region.

Unfortuately for me i've got an rebaged argos one, meaning this doesnt work for me :(
