Create a directory called RMTM0000 which has a subdirectory SCARLET.
Inside of SCARLET (camelcase on purpose) directory create an empty file called KPJC19_1.DVD
Use a hex editor and set the bytes to: 17 17 8C 00
Burn the RMTM0000 directory on a CD-R (use the ISO-9660 format)
Insert the CD-R to DVD player
Press 0 and Enter to enable region-free

The procedure described by Metallus to turn Multi-region this LG DVD player (manufactured in 2015) works perfectly. Thank you!

Sadly, Metallus' hack did not work for me.
When the CD-R is inserted into the player, up comes the word 'List' on an otherwise empty screen.
Following Metallus' instructions, I pressed 0 on the remote; then I pressed 'Enter' on the remote. There was no change to the screen.
Then I ejected the CD-R.
Nothing has changed. The player is still locked to PAL (I am in Europe) and won't play NTSC DVDs. As before, when trying to play NTSC DVDs, the screen says 'Check regional code'.
I hope I'm missing something very simple! Any advice gratefully received.

Just applied this hack (06 Feb 17) OK to the LG DP542H
if you have correctly burned the CD it will come up with a menu allowing you to change the code
Also to add that for those who can't get it to work, you are ADDING the bytes to the empty file not changing them

This tip on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yw-Zk6QSQ90 (not mine - credit to the publisher Dominic Gichane) worked easily, using the remote.
With no disc in the player and while connected to a TV monitor,
1) Press PAUSE
2) Type 3141590
3) The region code change menu should come up on the screen. Change the region to 0 (universal) or whatever you wish.
4) Press PAUSE to exit.
That's it. You should now be able to play DVDs from any region

Just thought I'd mention that the hack posted by Metallus worked fine on my player. When you add bytes with the hex editor you have to change the byte count from 0 to 1, that makes the file 1kb in size when you save it.
When burning the CD-R it is important to use the right burning software. I used Power2Go by Cyberlink which allowed me to use the ISO-9660 format. If you just do it through Windows it won't work, you get 'ROM error' when you play the CD-R.
Having done it the right way the disc and hack worked a treat and I can't wait to start watching Region 1 DVD's.

The basic hack mentioned where you press the pause button on remote and put the code in didnít work. Nothing even
appears on the screen.

Hi all, I have a DP542H manufactured February 2016 with RC 2 and I am trying to get it set to 0 (all regions). None of the hacks proposed on this thread or other LG related ones seem to work. I have not tried it with the CDR hack, hoping one of the ones with remote control will work. Any thoughts appreciated!

The solution posted by Metallus works perfect. Just follow the instructions.

I've just applied the hack and it worked straight away.I used a freeware HEX editor (HxD) and
created a new file. Make sure the entry mode is Hex or the bytes will be the wrong value.
Once I had saved it as described, I burned it using Ashampoo Burning Studio as a Data Disc.
The menu appeared and I just entered 0 and then pause to exit, really simple.
Thanks for the hack

LG DP132H model bought Feb 2022.
All Remote hacks didn't work at all, menu wasn't presented.
I Finally (as a last resort) created the Binary file hack (\RMTM0000\SCARLET\KPJC19_1.DVD) and brned
it as a data disk on a standard DvD-R.
Worked like a charm on first try - Be sure to use ISO-9660.
As they are becoming rather rare, I had to by a box of DVDs but it was money well spent :-)
