Depend on the firmware:
Open the disk Tray, Pause, 0, 0, 0, 0
Region Free is: 0

I just want you to know that it works!
I used a CD-RW to burn the directory and then when prompted
I pressed 0, then enter and then I turned it off.

Works perfectly. My LDA-530 (Purchased from Future Shop in Mar 06), now plays British DVDs with no hassle.
Download the following file, burn to a CD-R, stick it in the player. An LG maintenance menu will pop up asking you to enter the new region code on the remote (0-6). Type '0' (this indicates region-free). The menu instructs you to hit pause to save the change. Eject the disc and turn your player off and on again. Simple as that.
This should be a safe "hack" too, because it does not modify or upgrade the firmware, it seems to just allow you access to a built-in menu that is normally inaccessible. You can change the region as many times as you want, too. Doing a factory reset to the player may set this back to original region, so keep the region-changing disc handy.
