PostRegion code hack posted by Nuno Miranda, July 19 2002:


This is the multiregion Hack for the DVD-5000 Series LG DVD Players.

Follow this instructions exactly:


Step 1

Download the file lg5000.zip by clicking on the link:

http://www.area450.co.uk/images/LG5000.zip

(If you have any problems downloading the file e-mail me and i will send it to you: nunomiranda80@hotmail.com)


Step 2

Unzip the file lg5000.zip. It will create a directory folder called RMTM0000.


Step 3

You need a CD Writer to write a new disk with the files you've just unziped (RMTM0000 folder).


Step 4

You need a CD burning software (like Easy CD Creator, Nero, CD Clone, HP RecordNow, etc....) to make a Data disc.


Step 5

I've read not to use a 700mb capacity CD-R, but mine worked just fine! For information, I used a Memorex CD-R 700MB 24x. This speed (24x) I think is the key to success, not the capacity or size of the CD-R.


Step 6

Using the CD burning software, create a Data disc and add the directory folder RMTM0000. That's all you need !
*** When burning the disc do not use DirectCD ***


Step 7

Switch "On" your DVD player and TV and insert the newly burned disc. When prompted select "0" for multiregion and then ENTER. Power off and... it's done!

Good Luck!

2. Press Pause on the remote control.
3. Using the remote control, key in the following: 1, 4, 7, 2 (the
characters 01 47 should appear on the display) [If your player is a non UK
model, this number will probably be different - don't worry]
4. Press the UP arrow three times (the characters 04 Fd should appear on the
display)
[This number may be different depending on the configuration of your
specific model - don't worry]
5. Press Program, 6, Program, 5 (the characters 04 FE should now be
displayed).

MULTI REGION AND VCD HACK



1. Wait until the message "no disc" or "region coding error" appears before you proceed to step 2. You only have a second or two to enter the code below.
2. Press PAUSE, ENTER, 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9 on the remote control.
3. Press 0 for region-free, 1 for region 1, 2 for region 2, etc.
4. Press PAUSE on the remote control.
5. Power off the player for few seconds.
6. Power on the player.
Firmware Check:

1. Press Setup button on the remote control.
2. Select TV Aspect.
3. Place the cursor on 16:9 wide.
4. Using the remote control, key in the following: 1, 3, 9, 7, 1, 3, 9.
5. Press Enter on the remote control.
6. Press "SETUP" to clear the information once read.



VCD Enable:

NOTE: This hack should ONLY be used on the following players which have been confirmed elsewhere on the Net. That said, I still cannot take responisibility for things going awry. Try at your own risk!!!

The 'confirmed' players that survive the following hack are:

DVD-2330P, DVD-3000E, DVD-3350/1/E/C (and clones), DA-3520, DVD-4210, DVD-4710, DVD-4730, DVD-4750, DVD-4830, DVD-4950, DVD-5083. DVD-3200E models with firmware above version 1.0 (not including it!) may work. This model has had the most trouble recently, as the hack works, but leaves you with no picture for playback on DVD at the very least! Be warned!!!

1. Power on the player with no disc in the drive. If the hack doesn't work, press Stop on the remote before step 2.
2. Press Pause on the remote control.
3. Using the remote control, key in the following: 1, 4, 7, 2 (the characters 01 47 should appear on the display) [If your player is a non UK model, this number will probably be different - don't worry]
4. Press the UP arrow three times (the characters 04 Fd should appear on the display)
[This number may be different depending on the configuration of your specific model - don't worry]
5. Press Program, 6, Program, 5 (the characters 04 FE should now be displayed).
6. Press Enter (the display should flash briefly).
7. Press Return.
8. Power the player off and then back on.
9. Play a VCD!

One possibility that may get non-working players working again is to try and back-step what you done in the above steps, but seeing as you will working blind, then it may be rather hard work, if not futile. Another possibility is to use the firmware display hack, listed above.

This has the effect of resetting certain TV out aspects, which may help you get your DVD working again.

Another way is possibly the 'blind method' to set S-video for TV output:

1. Power on the DVD without a disc in the drive.
2. Wait for the No Disc illumination on the LED.
3. Press Setup on the remote control.
4. Press Down seven times slowly on the remote control.
5. Press Right, then Up, then Enter on the remote control.
6. The screen should come back on.
