The hack for this 3D Blu Ray player is the same as for previous models.
1. Make sure NO disc or usb stick is inserted into the player.
2. Turn on your your blu ray player.
3. When the main menu appears, press the REPEAT button followed by the region code your player is currently locked to - depending on which country
you are in (eg: in Australia press "REPEAT 7 6 8 8 4".
4. In the top right corner you will see your region code flash (eg: 4 for Australia).
5. Press 9.
6. Turn off and on and your BD-E6500 is now region free.
How this differs from the opening post is no need to open and close the disc tray.

So, after pressing REPEAT please enter one of the following codes the matches your current region lock:
1 – 2 9 3 3 4 (US)
2 – 5 7 5 3 8 (Europe)
3 – 5 6 7 3 2 (South East Asia)
4 – 7 6 8 8 4 (Australia / South America)
5 – 5 3 8 1 4 (India, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Africa)
6 – 2 4 4 6 2 (China)
9 - Region Free
Then press '9' and your player is region free.
Turn the player off, then on to finalise the change and play those DVD's that you have been wanting to.

After investigating, it doesn't seem that the hack above works
with firmware version >= 1008. If you applied the hack with
1006, it still works if you upgrade to 1008, but you can't
apply with 1008 (current version as of posting is 1012).

I can confirm the following hack worked with my Samsung Bluray BD-D6500
which was purchased in Australia as a region 4 player.
Note that the firmware was the most up to date when the hack was applied on
2013-11-20, I don't recall what version exactly, but it was certainly more recent
that the v1012 that some users were concerned this hack didn't work for any
The "trick" to getting this to work (it took me over 20 tries) was to make sure I
pressed the keys in fairly quick succession with a similar time lapse between
each one. So don't press a few in quick succession and then others slowly/firmly,
just press them all lightly and take the same time for each key.
I used the sequence:
REPEAT 7 6 8 8 4
And then '9' to make the player region free.
I could see the region code '4' flash on the top corner of the screen after the first
sequence, and the '9' flash after the region change.

Repeat + region code does not
work on bd-f6500. It may be working on bd-
d6500 and bd-e6500 but Not on bd-f6500.
Has someone actually managed to get it
working on BD-F6500 ? Don't care about

Repeat then 76884 and then 9 works for me with current firmware. I didn't
expect it to, but it did =:0

This hack appears to only work for existing region 4 players. There have been no
reports of it working for any other region as far as I can tell. Samsung have either
changed the codes for the other regions (most likely), or perhaps the remote on
Australian players is slightly different.
