220v Region 1, 2 & 3 DVD Player


Recommended Posts

Just bought a 24" TV/Monitor (HDMI/DVI/VGA) to install on the wall, in front of the treadmill…

 

What would be the best way to play the Region 1, 2 and 3 DVD’s?

 

I cannot find any region free or at least Region 1 220v player on internet…

 

Thanks…

it seems like a lot of the cheap ones are region free. doesn't make sense that the more expensive ones are region locked, but that has been my experience.

Even the region locked ones can be unlocked. Just a matter of finding the unlock proceedure on the net. Mine involved having the tray opened and about 15 button combination.............

No luck on my Sony BDP-SX1 ;) Oh, well, maybe I will connect my old computer to it... my "study" is a cabling nightmare... already so many cables, connectors, computers, monitors, etc. etc. I bought a cable bundling set but not good enough... what I need is a dual layer floor or something... :D

The remote is now programmed and ready to use, to make the BDP-S550 region free:

 

1. Use the remote that came with the player to bring the player out of standby, make sure there isn't a disc in it. It should read "HOME" on the front panel.

2. Press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on the oneforall remote. The blue 24p light will start flashing on the front panel

3. Put the player back into standby with the Sony remote

4. Next time you turn on the player it will be region free for DVD playback

I owe you a beer or two or three! We recently bought a big screen TV (60 inches + or so) and it came with a Samsung home theatre DVD set free. It was region locked and wouldn't play any of our DVD's from the US. I tried your suggestion and found this site:

Entered my make and model number... followed the directions... It's now unlocked. Works like a charm. We no longer have to use the jury-rigged "old" DVD player with "bad" sound when playing our discs from home. Let me know when you are in town and lunch is on me. Thanks again!

Glad to help. I used to have a well paying hobby doing this kind of stuff before. Its the same with cable TV, really simple to have one box going to a few TVs....

 

I will take you up on your offer next time I go to the city............

That's strange. I would think that Sony would have a way to unlock the regions... Maybe because they are so involved in movies, music, etc... I think that in today's digital age it's kind of dumb for the industry to "lock" DVD players by region. Or the DVD's for that matter. Most everything is available online anyway.
