This is a first post on how to hack stuff. A need arose at home to make my Region 2 BR-DVD player region free. Here is what I tried on my Samsung BD-C5900/XEU
Here are the steps I had to go through to make it region free.
- Remove disc (if any in the tray)
- Power OFF and Power ON the device
- Choose “Videos” on the main menu
- Open and Close Tray.
As soon as the “No Disc” disappears on the screen, the following must be executed in rapid succession (I took 8 tries to get it right)
- Hold Repeat key on the remote for 3 seconds
- Then key in the key combination (my device was region 2, hence I had to type in the code: 57538)
- Observe “2” appear on the screen
- Key in “9” to make it region free
- Open and Close Tray
- Power OFF and Power ON the device again.
- Play any region disc now 🙂
Here is the code by region
R1 – 29334
R2 – 57538
R3 – 56732
R4 – 76884
R5 – 53814
R6 – 24462
