1- Power on the dvd player without any disc on it.
2- Press the PAUSE button and then the following numbers
3 1 4 1 5 9
3- Then you will be asked which region you want to set up.
0 = All regions.
1 = Region 1.
2 = Region 2 etc.
4- Then press pause again.
Then power off the dvd, and then turn it on.
That its all.

kinda hard to use this hack since there are no number buttons on the remote.
|Region code hack posted by bakuhack, February 24 2017:|
1.Switch on the DVD player without any Disc inside
2.The screen should display 'no disc'
3.Eject to open the DVD tray
4.While the tray is open, press the 'STOP' button then hold the 'ENTER' button for 5 seconds
5. A new screen will appear (Regional Management Test Code) which will allow you to change the region code using
the up and down arrow keys on the remote control.
6. Change the code to '0' and press the PAUSE key to exit
thanks Larry Lurex from fixya.
tried this and it worked.

the hack does not work! do u have any new hacks on the LG DP132 ??
|Region code posted by majormulatto, June 25 2017:|
my personal experience in the past 3 years suggests that this machine may have had a working hack at one time, but no longer does. i've had several store bought players from different manufacturers which had remote hacks. these machines have either been removed from the local stores or replaced by ones which can no longer be hacked with the remote. i tend to believe that this is more of a problem in region 1 than it is anywhere else. i've also noticed that the price of pre-hacked machines has risen sharply in the past 2 years, which suggests smaller inventory and/or higher import duty. whatever the reason, easily hacked players from the local store seem to be vanishing, at least in amurca.

I used the February bakuhack post and it worked because the remote doesn’t have any numbers
|Region code hack posted by peaches, January 12 2018:|
1) PAUSE and STOP, ENTER hack - no luck
2) With the numbers on the remote - no luck
Does anyone have any new hacks for LG DP132?

Does anyone have any new hacks for LG DP132?

The codes using the remote worked for me.
Model: LG 132H
manufactured February 2018, locked to region 2
remote LG COV33662801
BUT the old CD-R hack did !!!
It's the same as LG DP542H (https://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks/lg-dp542h/12405)
Create a directory and subdirectory \RMTM0000\SCARLET\
Create an empty file named KPJC19_1.DVD
Edit the file with a hex editor and set the bytes to: 17 17 8C 00
The file size must be 4 bytes.
If you don't know how to use a hex editor, google for "KPJC19_1.DVD" or "LG montblanc.dvd".
(download link: https://www.avforums.com/attachments/montblanc-txt.873684/)
and copy it in \RMTM0000\SCARLET\ and (re)name it "KPJC19_1.DVD"
Burn the directory on a CD-R (format ISO-9660, no specific LABEL). I used ImgBurn for Windows.
Make sure the burned CD contains all the directories and the file: \RMTM0000\SCARLET\KPJC19_1.DVD
Now power on your LG 132H drive.
Put your CD in it and a blue menu with pop up asking to choose a new region code.
Enter 0 and press PAUSE to save the new region.

the 314159 hack works on the region 5 model i just bought. it didn't work on either of the 2 region 1 models i've had. i suspect that many hacks which work on region 2-6 machines won't work on a region 1 machine. it is important, when posting hacks, to include the manufacture date & the machine's region code, since newer region 1 players are mostly not hackable anymore.

The Hack recommended by bakuhack in Feb 2017 for the LG DP 132 worked beautifully. It was simple
and quick and very effective
|Region code posted by Tommy, October 17 2018:|
Did try all on LG DP132H region 1-nothing works.
|Region code hack posted by Rob, Sydney Aus, October 26 2018:|
The hack hitting stop then holding
down the enter button for 5 seconds
worked perfectly. Thanks!
|Region code hack posted by Mike, October 27 2018:|
Thanks so much, bakuhack, for posting this info re the LG DP132 region code hack WITHOUT a remote with numbers!
So I used the hack posted about opening the drawer with EJECT then hitting STOP then pressing ENTER For 5 seconds, and it worked for my model!
Note this was purchased in Costa Rica and it would not play my large collection of DVD's I brought here!
So you saved me from having to drive an hour back to the store to return it and still have no way to play my dvd's!
A million blessings to you sir!

I tried the Open tray/Stop/Enter hack and
after about 10 tries it worked. The player
I bought (new) was advertised Region Free
but wouldn't play my DVD and came with no
instructions. Sad I had to "hack" it but
so grateful for the info.

The hack postet February 2017 worked perfect, easy and fast
|Region code hack posted by Jaymee, February 27 2019:|
The bakuhack worked great on my 132
region 1 model. Thanks! Buying a
132H though soon and hope one of
these suggestions work.

does not work on 2016 player, region 1...
|Region code hack posted by V, December 25 2019:|
I had previously changed the region code on my LG dp132 DVD player from region 4 to region 2 but when I tried to change it
back to region 4 the hack didn't work. So I tried the hack 10 times in a row by following open the disc, press stop & enter
together for 5 seconds & eventually it worked. I changed the region code to 0 & now all dvds work fine.
|Region code hack posted by AP, December 29 2019:|
Mine was manufactured september 2019, locked to region 2
remote LG COV33662801, but the codes or "open the disc, press stop & enter
together for 5 seconds" don't works... should I try the hack to the death? ;)
|Region code hack posted by Greg, February 19 2020:|
2019 model, bought & hacked Feb 2020
(Remote has no numbers)
PRESS “Stop” let it go
And HOLD “Menu”
If done right, the region menu should pop
If not, repeat the last 2 steps only
(Took me 3x at it)
|Region code hack posted by Simon, April 16 2020:|
I’d just like to clarify that the hack works, but either I misread the hack or it wasn,t clear, so I wanted to add that clarity here.
After opening the tray, you press STOP once, and then press and hold ENTER for a few seconds until the menu comes up for
you to change the region. It works great, I was just previously reading it as press STOP AND ENTER together for 5 seconds,
which doesn't work!

LG DP132 hack works 💯 and now watching Fawlty Towers
|Region code posted by pat, May 03 2020:|
Tried all options with my numberless remote, nothing works. just bought a region 2 now in 2020. dvd was built in
2019. Desperately need to unlock it. thanks in advance...
|Region code hack posted by PS, June 08 2020:|
Bought mine in 2020, too (with non numeric keypad) and none of the above seems to work. I've tried several combinations on my own
and the only thing i've found so far is -no matter if the tray is open or closed- if you keep pressing the pause button for a 3-4 seconds
the screen flickers and changes to NTSC. If you repeat that step, changes back to PAL. It's pretty useless though, because no region 1
discs would play if it is changed to NTSC.
The other thing that crossed my mind is to use a remote control app on a phone so i can have numbers and try the original hack. i do
have an iPhone so it doesn't come with an IR Blaster but most of androids originally come with. Has anyone tried that?

I have a LG BH4120S home theather and I can t make it region free. Can somebody help me?
|Region code hack posted by Kyo, September 10 2020:|
LG DP123 hack worked but with slight
Power on player without disk
Then on remote press eject, stop then
enter for 5 seconds.
It did not work if the disk tray was all
the way out. So press stop before the
tray opens fully. Then hold enter.

LG132H dated July 2020. Neither of these hacks work, but I am sure they did in the past. Possble
limited number of times region can be reset?
|Region code hack posted by dov, March 04 2023:|
Succeeded at last!
Model DP132H manufactured 5/2021 locked to region 2
remote LG COV33662801
Tried using the remote methods and they didn't work.
Then, made a CD-R using the procedure suggested by Bibi (March 2018) and it worked like a charm.
I used Ashampoo Burning Studio Free to make a Data CD.
|Region code hack posted by J Schmoe, March 09 2023:|
Region 2 model DP132H, manufacture date 18/12/2022
remote LG COV33662801 (has number pad)
None of the hacks using the remote worked for me.
The CD-R method from Bibi did work perfectly.
To make the disk I tried the windows default burn method at first and this failed because it is not ISO9660 format. The player
reported “Rom Err” when reading this disk.
I used ImgBurn to burn the CD correctly to ISO9660 format and this was successful. When this disk was used in the player, the blue
“Region Management Test Mode” panel appeared immediately and I was able to change from region 2 to region 0. Press pause to
save (as shown on the panel)
The player now works with all my region 2 and region 1 disks.
