SOURCE: Changing region on a DVD player
You did not specify what kind of DVD player this is? Since you said player, and not drive, then I will assume this is a dvd player you hook up to your TV, not install in a computer.
Simple answer, you can not change the region code on a DVD player, unless there is a known hack listed on a website.
Therefore, your only option, is get a region free dvd player. They are cheap and easy to get on amazon.
here is one for $30:

In DVD mode, press System Menu
Go down to the "Lock " icon
While lock is highlighed press zero "0" for 7 times ( i.e 0,0,0,0,0,0,0)
There will be pop-up window that asks you confirm. Press "OK"

You can change the DVD region four times only, the fourth change will lock on that region permanently.
There may be a firmware upgrade that make your DVD region free, but if you make a mistake or install the wrong firmware upgrade then the DVD will be a piece of junk. You will need to Google search for DVD firmware upgrades for your model DVD.
The best way to view DVDs from other regions is to install a piece of software that defeats the region code. I use a program called DVD-RegionFree from
There are possibly other programs available, again Google search for them.

I hope this helps^^ try it and gimme a shout!
Turn on power.
Push 9 7 3 5 from the remote.
Select 0 using arrow keys.
The one above did work me, only that after one turns on the player, enter in the 9735 with the remote and press 'enter', you can choose between making your player region-free or a different region in addition to R1. Select the desired region unlock and press 'enter'.
Make sure you check the bottom of the DVD player to see if it was manufactured in the first quarter of 2007, that might factor in whether the code can work or not.
