|Region code hack posted by GreenCentaur, November 10 2009:|
Long time amateur cinephile / videographer / hacker. Long a user of VideoHelp so it's time I contributed something. Which is:
I got a Go Video Sonic Blue DVR4275 Dual Deck DVD & VHS player console form the side of the road. Mint condition with remote.
I immediately started hunting for every hack / unlocking code available. I found the post for the model DVR4250 (one gen behind mine. I thought - probably the same codes posted will work on mine. INDEED THEY DID.
BEFORE entering these unlock / enabler codes, I put factory silver VCD (NTSC USA pressing) in and tested. Nada.
I then put a factory silver DVD-rom (Region 2 DVD, Japanese, NTSC) in and tested. Nada.
After keying in the button sequences on the remote, BOTH discs played perfectly.
Here are the button-press sequences:
To unlock DVD regions lightbulb.gif (make it planetary):
Go to DVD mode.
Enter Pi until FF appears (314159)
Enter region desired (0 for region-free).
Press pause again.
Will not work while DVD is playing, while CD is playing, or while in ``DISK LOAD'' mode. However, it will work while DVD or CD is stopped.
To enable playback of VCDs:
Power on the player with no disk in the drive
Press "PAUSE" on the remote
Enter "1472" on the remote
Press the UP arrow three times
Press "PROGRAM", "5", "PROGRAM", "5" (the characters 04 EE should now be displayed)
Press "ENTER" (the display should flash briefly)
Power the player off and then back on
Play a VCD.
~~~~~~Thirdly, take note of this~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Last but not least, I tried playing an authentic Russian PAL format, DVD-rom pressing (Bandidas) and it would NOT playback... this console obviously plays only NTSC.
Cheers Chaps and Chapettes.
