For anybody that may have a dansai 852 dvd this is how you enable all regions.
press set up
press stop
press rewind
press fast forward

to region id
down to bypass
press play
press set up

The macrovision can also be turned off or on the factory settings page, but the default is off.

To access the factory setup page enter the following hack:
Press SETUP On Remote
Press STOP, PREVIOUS, NEXT On Front Panel Of DVD Player.
Factory Setup will appear allowing region code and macrovision removal.

DO NOT SELECT "CSS" OFF Or the player will not recognise any disks at all.

Enjoy ;-)

Multi-Region Hack:

Press set-up on the remote
Then on the front panel press
and up pops the factory set up menu

Go to region ID and you have the choice of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, and bypass
(mulit region) it should also play RCE disks.

There is also an option for macrovision on and off

Disable region settings and macrovision are explaind below, this is from

Turn on the player

Make sure you have NO disc inserted!
Press "setup" on the remote control
Press "stop" on the front panel
Press "prev" on the front panel
Press "next" on the front panel
This will have opened the secret install menu
You can also open this menu using just the remote control buttons but be carefull to do everything exactly as it states

Region code Hack

Look for the "region I.D" setting
Press "play" to open the options
Choose "bypass" to remove the need for a region code

RCE discs?

RCE = Region Code Enhanced
This is the movie makers way of stopping you playing there dvd discs on a player not made for that region
You are in luck though, the Dansai DVD852 can be tricked into playing RCE discs, just choose the exact region from the list rather than bypass, its that simple

The Macrovision Hack

While in the secret setup menu move down to macrovision and choose "off" instead of "auto"
This turns off the macrovision signal and enables you to make back-up copys onto VHS video tapes

To make it multi-region:
1. Press set-up on the remote
2. On the front panel press -
and the factory setup menu appears
Select Region ID and you get the choice of regions 1 to 8.

This works on 1010 anyway!
