I recently purchased a DVP-3960 and I just wanted to say that I confirmed the above region code hack. :)

I confirm that hack described bi limdadmom on April 10 works for me on a machine purchased June 1 from Walmart (for $45).

Purchased DVP3690/37 from Wal Mart for $38. Hooked up and first tried DVD that gave a region error on my older Sony. Played DVD with no problems. I don't believe the region code was limited to US (1) on this player. The user handbook says it could be set to "all."
My reason for making this entry is to help clear up some misinformation about cracks. First thing to do when buying a new player is see if it works on your disk before attampting any so-called crack.
There were 3 or 4 cracks listed for my Sony, but not one worked because it was a stock unit that had not been modified with a chip replacement. People kept entering the same cracks without making that clear. I suspect the same may be true with the DVP 3960. It works out of the box and no hack is needed.

Confirming the hack works for firmware version 37.07.30.22. It took me several tries before I was able to bring up the region settings. I was only able to change the region setting with the drive door closed.
To find out the firmware version, and if your player is locked to a region, type in "1379" from the "General Setup Page" menu.

The hack works with one modification: I had to open the tray before accessing the setup menu, or it wouldn't allow me to access the Preferences menu.

Bought the DVD player from Wal*Mart Canada, I can confirm that the hack in the original post works. I had to open the tray to see the preference menu. Now plays any region.

Confirm that the hack works with a player purchased at Wal-Mart with manufacture date of December 2007. I did not have to open the tray to access the Preferences menu.

Philips has release a new firmware for his DVP3960/37.
Tell me if that doesn't change the access for the Hack?
