Please refer to this website where the original post is. This hack worked for me
on my BDPS580.

As a heads up to those of you hacking sony dvd players, make sure that your
other sony devices such as your play station 3 and playstation 2 etc,.... are all
unplugged before doing the hack. When I first tried it with a one for all 7562
remote, the hack didn't work, but once I unplugged my other sony things all
apart from the tv and the dvd player the hack worked on the first try.

It may seem obvious to others out there that you need to have the other sony
devices unplugged but I didn't think of it at the time.

Hope this helps,

Becca



Region code hack posted by Avaddict, August 13 2011:

Region free BDP-S580 (same as 350 hack posted by mao141 - thanks) for DVD playback only, BD untested. UK unit only tested.

Full procedure for a oneforall remote is as follows:

1. Press DVD
2. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice.
3. Press 0533

4. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice.
5. Press 994
6. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
7. Press 00189 (if your oneforall remote uses 4 digit or 3 digit codes, use less leading zeros)
8. Press 1 ( this sets it to key 1 - it flashes twice )

9. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice.
10. Press 994
11. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
12. Press 00255
13. Press 2 ( this sets it to key 2 - it flashes twice )

14. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice.
15. Press 994
16. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
17. Press 00095
18. Press 3 ( this sets it to key 3 - it flashes twice )

19. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice.
20. Press 994
21. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
22. Press 00221
23. Press 4 ( this sets it to key 4 - it flashes twice )

24. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice.
25. Press 994
26. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
27. Press 00079
28. Press 5 ( this sets it to key 5 - it flashes twice )

The remote is now programmed and ready to use, to make the BDP-S580 region free:

1. Use the remote that came with the player to bring the player out of standby, make sure there isn't a disc in it.
2. Press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on the oneforall remote. The 24p light will start flashing. (Centre light)
3. Put the player back into standby with the Sony remote.
4. Hard reboot machine, if necessary,(remove power)to prevent the 24p light flashing indefinitely.
5. Next time you turn on the player it will be region free for DVD playback.

This worked for me, but obviously I accept no liability for anyone who tries it on their machine.

1. Now to make your player region free use the Sony remote that came with the
player to bring it out of standby and wait while HOME is displayed
2. Make sure there isn't a disc in the machine.
3. Now on the OneforAll remote press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (The blue 24p light on the
player will start flashing)
4. Put the player back into standby with the Sony remote
5. That’s it, the next time you turn on the player it will be region free for DVD
playback

The original posting of this hack is from avforums. This hack works using a One
For All 7562 remote or the One For All URC-3440 remote.

It works on the Sony BDPS580 and the Sony BDPS350, however it may work on
the other BDPS models too, it definitely works on the S580 (the model I own).

IMPORTANT::::: Remember to unplug your other Sony devices (apart from the
TV) as the hack didn't work for me as stated in my previous post when I had all
my sony stuff connected to the mains. Once I unplugged everything else leaving
just the dvd player and tv on this hack worked fine on the first go!!!

PLEASE NOTE:: full credit for this information goes to the people on
AVforums.com uk. It is there I originally found the post related to my dvd
player, to view the original post and my comments on it there go to
AVForums.com. My member name is ninjacat and you will see my comments on
the post there next to that name.

Hope this helps someone,

Becca
