    if you google 'dvd player region codes' or similar you should be able to find the sequence to change the region on your machine so it will play all dvds

    Uk sold players are sold set for region 2 but i changed mine and both my kids ones using this method and they now play all countries discs

    Some DVD players are unrestricted or multi-region by default.

    Be wary of changing the region code on your player though without checking it out properly. The early ones (not had a recent locked one) allowed you upto 5 changes before it was locked into the firmware and not possible to reset

    Most modern stuff shouldn't be region locked at all.

    Apparently this hack will make it region free


    1. Remove disc from tray.
    2. Switch off player and unplug from mains.
    3. Wait 30 seconds, then reconnect mains.
    4. Turn on player with remote. Wait for player to finish loading and display 'no disc'.
    5. Press enter on remote. (There will be no on-screen response.)
    6. Press 8, 4, 2, 6, 9 on the remote. (There will be no on-screen response.)
    7. Press enter on the remote. Player will automatically shut off.
    8. Turn player on.
    9. turn off.
    10. Turn player off then on again.
    11. Player is now region-free.
    Meep Meep.

    It's one of them things. Mixed reports over it. Previous hacks i've done to DVD players have been fine but you'll never get a guarantee when hacking something
