Can anyone tell me how to charge the region code for this player. Ideally, I'd like to make it region free. I think there is a button on the remote and then you press the button zero. But that button is usually a secret. Anyone have an idea on how to do this?

Well it can be done but not with Region 1 Units, you will generally need to have a Pronto, One4All or Harmony in order to make the unit region free.

This works with a Pronto remote, use ProntoEdit for the codes...

- Program individual hex-code (below) into five chosen buttons
- Put your DVD-player to standby mode (main power on and red light
above it)
- Push programmed buttons sequentially from one to five (the player
starts up)
- Do it again: Push programmed buttons sequentially from one to five
(the player goes back to standby)

The player should now be multiregion!

Here are the hex-codes:

Device Code: 26.73 Function: 127

With the DVD player in standby. Press button 1 -> 5 twice in turn e.g. 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4,5,5. If it has worked the DVD player will switch on and show "SUCCESS" on the display. Repeat this again and the DVD player will revert to standby.

WOW! Thanks for this information. It's really more involved than I ever thought. My DVD recorder was purchased in Europe, which I think makes it Region 2 (but I might be wrong). Will that make a difference?

Hi Mr Mod

I live in Europe. But I don't think that this is a region free area.
