I have purchased the BD-F5100 after reading the hack
mentioned, but haven't been able to successfully hack my
machine. Would anyone be able to confirm that the information
is correct and what remote they were using. I have the one
that is shipped AK59-00149A.

I know this is not what this part is for but I am really struggling. I purchased
the Samsung BD-F5100 Bluray player and I am unable to get the hack to
make it DVD multi-regional, I am in the UK (region 2) and all the hacks I
have tried haven't worked. Has anyone got it to work on a UK model ?

For Samsung BD F5500: Follow rtalaman protocol, EXCEPT use the "REPEAT" button to the right of the "A/B REPEAT" button instead of the "A/B" button. This worked for me first try on a Mexican bought BD F5500, after no results with any of the protocols posted previously.

This is for the Samsung BD-F5500 3D Blu Ray.
The hack posted by BillKG worked for me, exactly as posted by him. I live in South Asia, region code 53814.
Specifically, follow rtalaman's protocol, except, don't press the A-B button, but press the blank button to the right of the A-B button.
This worked on the second try for me. Make sure to sit close to the DVD player. If you're sitting at a normal distance, the player may miss sensing a push of the button on the remote, in which case it may not work.

Status: failure to set region-free
Unit: Samsung BD-F5100/AZ
Tried all methods:
Reset to factory defaults
None resulted in the region code flashing on screen.

I am from India and tried this on my samsung BD 5100.
Worked perfect just in 2 tries. As someone says sit close to the DVD player
so that it gets all the digits. And yes instead of repeat use the black button
in the very last row of buttons on the remote. This black button is between
A-B and Screen buttons. Worked like a charm. Remember to do a power
recycle after pressing the last 9 and trying out outher region disc.

I recently purchased the Samsung BD-F5100 Bluray player and I tried the hack mentioned here several times, but haven't been able to successfully hack my machine. I am in Portugal (Region 2) and my model comes with the AK59-00149A remote control. Can anyone help me?

I tried all the hacks posted here in my Samsung BD-F5100 Bluray player and none of them works. I live in Portugal (region 2) and my model comes with the AK59-00149A remote control; firmware is BSP-F5100WWB-1009.3. Any tips?

Samsung BF5100 and none of these hacks work.
My remote: AK59-00149A
Any ideas and help would be welcome.
|Region code posted by scramble, February 20 2014:|
If it helps, I found an old firmware which I am downloading so I don't know if it will help yet but worth a try.
|Region code posted by scramble, February 21 2014:|
That didn't work...it told me that the player already had the latest firmware update.
I bought this Blu Ray player purposely because I thought I could make it region free. I grew up in the UK and have many DVDs from there that I can't watch. I'd have to buy them all over again here, if I could find them.
