How to change to Region 0?

    I actually solved this fairly quickly by reading lots of posts and trying different things.

    I burned an ISO which I booted in the drive. This gave me an option to choose a new region and save it. So suspect it was 0.

    After that a Region 1 disc played perfectly.

    * *

    I also used AnyDVD to make a region 1 drive appear as region 0. Then I copied the DVD with CloneCD and it changes the copy region.

1.Switch on the DVD player without any Disc inside
2.The screen should display 'no disc'
3.Eject to open the DVD tray
4.While the tray is open, press the 'STOP' button then hold the 'ENTER' button for 5 seconds
5. A new screen will appear (Regional Management Test Code) which will allow you to change the region code using the up and down arrow keys on the remote control.
6. Change the code to '0' and press the PAUSE key to exit

    Worked great. I first tried to hold stop button and enter key together when that didn't work I realised you press stop then just hold the enter key only for 5 seconds. Thank you

    Just bought two of these for the kids because they they could be made multi region however this operation doesn't seem to work, build date says sept 2016 could the software have been changed to stop this working? Anyone had any luck doing it a different way, remote has no numbers so that's not an option.

    Worked like a charm for me!

    Just received my set today and used this fix to change it from Region 5 (India) as shipped, to Region 0 and was able to play my US (Region 1) and UK (Region 2) DVD without any problem!

    Perhaps all those of you reporting failure are from North America, because I remember reading somewhere that this fix doesn't work on sets factory set to Region 1?

    But for those in India at least, you can safely buy and then make the set Region free!

SOURCE: How to setup Region code free for DVD LG DV 487

Power on the dvd player without any disc on it.
Press the PAUSE button and then the following numbers
3 1 4 1 5 9
Then you will be asked which region you want to set up.
0 = All regions. 1 = Region 1. 2 = Region 2 etc.
Then press pause again.
Then power off the dvd, and then turn it on.
I just did it with mine that was setup to only reagion 4 and couldn't watch region 1 dvds.. I set it up to = 0 (all).
Hope it helps.

it depends on what region your player is, most likely you need to unlock your region code(if there is an available unlock for your player) if you want to play that disk. but it simply means your dvd and your player is not on the same region

Region free code for LG BH7520

With your set on and without disc in the tray:

1. Press PLAY from your remote control
2. Press the following button sequence: 1590 2379 390
3. Press PLAY again

This will release the region verification in your home theater (region free). However, some DVDs (multiregion in particular) will not play, since they require region detection from the player unit.

I have a LG HT554PH home cinema and would like a region code to enable it to play region 1 dvds. i have just paid £5 from a website and it is no use my dvd player wasnt on the list. there is a reion...


To make the player as region free, switch on the LG HT554 Player. Push the eject button to open the tray. Now, press “0” on your player 4 times or until the region code settings shows up on your player. It will show the current region code and will then ask for new region code. Press “0” on your remote to set it as a new region code(0=All Regions). Press Enter key on remote, now restart your player and check the player by playing the DVD’s. It should be region free now.
Please post back for any further assistance. If you are satisfied please do accept the solution.

Lg dvdcombo region codes

I have just hacked an LG 32LG4000 combo tv/dvd. To open up the dvd to multi region, turn on the tv & press the menu/set up button. Next, navigate to the lock symbol but do not open the sub menu. Press 0 seven times. Exit out of the menu, and your 'on board' dvd player will play dvd's from any region!
