hi, thank you for using JA:

Do you want to make it region free for DVD playback or for BR disco playback?


Regards!
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Hi Andres,


I would like it region free on DVD playback.


 


I do not think it is possible BR playback.


 


Regards John


 

Expert:  Eng. Andres replied 4 years ago.
Hello John,

Yes, the BR ragion unlock is not available for any Br player. For DVD unlock, there is method, but it will work or not depending on the firmware installed on the device. For the new firmware, this method won't work and, unfortunately, there isn't any alternative method.



1. Switch on.
2. Move cursor to the videos section (rather than Internet)
3. Open and close disk tray
4. When "No disk" appears, smoothly and consistently press
REPEAT 5 7 5 3 8 REPEAT
(REPEAT = third button from left on bottom)
5. It shows "2" in the top left. Press "9" for multi region. Wait around 1 min so the changes take effect.
6. Switch off and back on again

Other regions, substitute numbers in step 4 with relevant
region code below:
region 1 – 2 9 3 3 4
region 2 – 5 7 5 3 8
region 3 – 5 6 7 3 2
region 4 – 7 6 8 8 4
region 5 – 5 3 8 1 4
region 6 – 2 4 4 6 2

Regards!

Hello John,

Unfortunately, I could not find any other alternative method for your DVD player.

I'm sorry, I will opt out and see if another expert can help you on this.

Hi, I’m a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!

thank you ,i am quite happy to wait.
