The region code "4" should appear at the top left corner of the screen. I also can't guarantee that this will work with all released firmware.
(Enter a region code if you want to lock the player to another region for some obscure or perverse reason.) 12. I can't guarantee that this player does not have a region change counter so I would be a bit careful about changing regions back and forth.
Read SAME HACK FOR BD-C5500, BD-C6500 & BD-C6900 This device is sold in Australia as a locked region 4 DVD and region B Blue-ray player. I tried unsuccesfully several times to do it by trying to enter the code when the "No Disc" message was displayed.
If you don't see the "4" the first time, don't worry. It took me about a dozen tries before I got it to work.
As soon as the "No Disk" message appears at the top left corner do the following. Press the REPEAT button just above the TV channel selector at the bottom right of the controller. For people from other parts of the world, all region codes are as follows 1 2 9 3 3 4 2 5 7 5 3 8 3 5 6 7 3 2 4 7 6 8 8 4 5 5 3 8 1 4 6 2 4 4 6 2 I tried the remote control and the repeat button followed by the codes published here. In ITALY, some Samsung players BD-c5500 and BD-c5300 seem to be REGION FREE for Blu Ray and REGION 2 for DVD. tag=hashemian-20 To get REGION FREE also on DVD, you must to do the following operations FROM THE REMOTE CONTROL: 1) turn ON the player WITHOUT any disc inserted 2) when in the upper left corner of the TV appear the message NO DISC, you must be press REPEAT 5 7 5 3 8 3) after this, in the upper left corner of the TV will be appear the regional code 2 4) press 9, wait several seconds and then turn OFF the player.
Samsung seems to take this crazy region bastardry very seriously for some reason. Does anyone knows how to switch the firmware to Singapore one so that it supports the remote control hack?
) To change the DVD from region 4 (Pacific/Australia) to region 9 (region free) follow these steps using the remote control. try and press every button for same period of time and with same rhythm.
Methodically and rhythmically PRESS each key in a smooth sequence. Like others I had trouble with the timing and on the successful attempt waited until JUST AFTER the No Disc message disappeared off the screen before entering sequence.
