Question about Pioneer DV-220V-K DVD Player
My DV-220KV-K, which is sold as a Multi Region DVD player has locked up on me. The following message comes onto the TV screen...
(Player's Region Setting) <1> : Region <2> : Region <3> : Region <4> : Region <5> : Region <6> : Region Pick out any one of these!
The message remains on the screen ALL the time and I'm locked out of viewing anything. The remote is locked and so I cannot pick any of the region numbers!

It may be a software problem, if you can't get it back to normal, try ripping your Blu-ray/DVD collections to a common video format to watch the movies on your computer or mobile devices. If you need, here's how you can do that: How to Rip and Convert Blu ray to MP4 with Blu ray to MP4 Converter

SOURCE: pioneer DV 310 K region free
Step 1) Download the pioneer firmware here http://www.pioneerfaq.info/index.php?question=Firmwares
The site says the firmware only works on region 2 players. For this model it worked for my region 4 player in Australia
Step 2) Burn this file to a CD-ROM with name PIONEER as per these instructions - http://www.pioneerfaq.info/english/burn_guide.php
Step 3) Load the CD and your DVD player with ask you to flash the firmware. It says press play to start but instead HOLD DOWN ENTER during the entire process. DO NOT switch off your DVD during this time. When the tray opens take the CD ROM out but keep the DVD on. The flashing can take up two to three minutes. During this time HOLD DOWN ENTER ON THE REMOTE. The entire time!
Step 4) The DVD player will reboot. The tray should be empty. It will then load the tray back into the player. If the signal is disorted switch on and off.
Your done! Should work.
The most complex way of region freeing a DVD I have ever endured! :)
