Region code hack posted by BradO74, May 12 2012:

**NOTE** this was done with the following:
Firmware : 2012/02/02_001005
Remote : AK59-00148A

1. Ensure that there is no disk in the tray.

2. Switch the player off and then back on. This is necessary to clean-boot the
firmware.

3. Wait until the main menu page appears and the player stops doing
anything.

4. Press the eject button on your remote to open the tray.

5. Press the eject button on your remote to close the tray.

6. As soon as the "No Disk" message appears at the top left corner do the following.

8. Press the STOP button (the square symbol)

9. Enter 76884 on the number pad.

10. The region code "4" should appear at the top left corner of the screen.(this just flashed on then off, so keep an eye on the screen)

11. Enter a "9" to make the player region free.

12. Power down and power up again.

13. Play a foreign DVD to verify the change.

================================================
================================================

Firstly, you must start entering the code just after the "No Disk" message is shown and before the message disappears.

Secondly, the STOP key is part of the code. All six keys must be entered smoothly as "STOP 76884". The entry gets timed out so you can't stop in the middle and restart.

If you don't see the "4" the first time, don't worry. Just start from step 4 again (took me 2 goes to get it, it is all about the timing)

================================================

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

I just bought this DVD after seeing that it can be hacked.
No success in all the hacks posted in this site. I tried with STOP, REPEAT, etc. and
nothing works. Can someone help??? My firmware is 1006.1

i have too many US dvds that i cannot play in this region 2 DVD.

HELP, PLEASE!!!

The post using STOP 76884 when NO DISC appears didn't work for our Region 4
Blu Ray.

What did work was hitting RETURN 78664. The Region Code 4 appeared in the
top right corner and I had to quickly hit 9 before it disappeared. Took me only
2x to get it working. We can now watch all of our US DVDs here in Australia.

I'm in New Zealand and the modification of the hack worked for me, i.e. RETURN instead of STOP button, on the 2nd go. Thanks!

Hi,

Just moved back to Sweden from HKG. Have a bunch of DVDs from there,
unfortunately can't watch those with Samsung BD-E5500-ZF which I bought
here in Sweden.
Remote: AK59-00148A.
Software: 2012/03/22_001009

Tried many times these hacks....No luck.

Any advice guys?

Cheers



Region code hack posted by Thumpeross, October 14 2012:

I just bought this DVD player and the new firmware version is
2012/09/18_001017 - currently bought for region 2

The hacks above do not work at all - the no disc sign stays on screen for
about 2 seconds, no time to enter any codes.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Hi All.
I managed to change the code to 9 by pressing RETURN 56732 (device purchased in Taiwan).
Unfortunately DVDs bought in Europe still cannot be played...
Checked several times and 9 in is still there, no more 3.
Any idea?
Thanks for help (need this desperately to play cartoons for my daughter)!

Folks, these steps really work, at least I can play all my
DVDs now.

Still not working for the Blu-Ray. I bought a area 2 Blu-Ray
and that won´t work.

Even though the DVD says "9" now instead of "4" , the Blu-Ray
did not play.

I'm in South Africa (Zone 2) and the hack works. Thanks so
much. As with others, I used RETURN instead of STOP. Took me
about half dozen attempts to get the keyboarding smooth.
Here is the modified instructions for Zone 2:

1. Ensure that there is no disk in the tray.

2. Switch the player off and then back on. This is necessary
to clean-boot the firmware.

3. Wait until the main menu page appears and the player
stops doing anything.

4. Press the eject button on your remote to open the tray.

5. Press the eject button on your remote to close the tray.

6. As soon as the "No Disk" message appears at the top left
corner do the following.

8. Press the RETURN button

9. Enter 57538 on the number pad.

10. The region code "2" should appear at the top left corner
of the screen.(this just flashed on then off, so keep an eye
on the screen)

11. Enter a "9" to make the player region free.

12. Power down and power up again.

Hi all!

For the BD-E5500 in good old New Zealand (wassup!), the trick is as
peeps have wrote, but wait for the "No Disk" message to disappear.

And dont be so fast at pressing the keys - it works fine at a slower
but steady pace.

And the "4" will appear in the top right, not top left!

Steps:

1. Ensure that there is no disk in the tray.
2. Switch the player off and then back on.
3. Wait until the main menu page appears.
4. Press the eject button on your remote to open the tray.
5. Press the eject button on your remote to close the tray.
6. As soon as the "No Disk" message disappears from top left:

8. Press the RETURN button
9. Enter 76884 on the number pad.

10. The region code "4" should appear at the top right corner
of the screen.(this just flashed on then off, so keep an eye
on the screen)

11. Enter a "9" to make the player region free.

12. Power down and power up again.
