Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I just moved to Rome and bought a great new Samsung home theatre system. Unfortunately, I was not aware of the region code situation and of course, none of my US DVD's and most of my Blue Rays do not play. I can not return the system, so I am very dissapointed. I heard there was a way to convert the players to region free....can someone help? It is a Samsung HT-C6200 Thanks!

It's not possible to make a Blu-Ray region free, of any brand and model, at this moment. And unfortunately your Samsung is a model specifically designed for Europe and the region code is hard coded in it and cannot be changed.
But you can do something else to view your disks : just buy a cheap pc with a BR-writer unit and VLC media player and you will not have a problem with region codes ever again.

    There is not BR tv so i really don't understand your first proposition - yes, i was talking about a 2.1 mini home-theater.
    I''m sorry to tell you but what they are talking is hardware modifications that would cost you more that what you payed for unit. And using a hardware device to crack a protection in an electronic device is illegal in Italy so you can't do it anyway , you will have to send it in UK for that.

Unfortunately with this unit there is no way to do a region unlock on the player. Many of these combo units that come with speakers attached are this way. Unfortunately you will want to attach some other blu-ray player that is region free to your setup, it seems crazy but that's pretty much the only way to get it to work, a blu-ray player plugged into one of the inputs on this blu-ray player / receiver.

If you need a recommendation of model let me know...

the code with a "9" in the corner)

Note that REPEAT is part of the code so one smooth press of

There isn`t currently a region hack for Blue-Ray Disks

Region free code samsung

Unless you bought a DVD for multi-region(very difficult to find), most especially without the remote, you will not be able to change the region code. These firmware changes are generally uploaded by inserting a disc with the firmware on it. These units are manufactured this way with firmware(software) downloaded, or imbedded within the Microprocessor(computer or memory) and not be changed. For more information, please visit my website at Thank you.

Power up the set and open tray in DVD mode.
Press <9999> follow by <X> buttons on the Remote control.
where x = numeric 1 to 6 denoting the regions below:
Then show your region on TV
1 = USA
2 = Europe
3 = Asia Pacific
4 = Australia, New Zealand, Latam
5 = Russia, India
6 = China
0 = Code Free

This is taken from the original service manual for the reciever
