Resently got one from Canadian Tire.
Evrethink above is true, but do not put othe then "0" in configuration. Othervase you will must update firmware. Once you put 0 the screen become black and white. Do not panic. Hit exit then go to display and switch back to pa/ntsc. Ther you go enjoy movie.

I phoned Magnasonic today and they told me to punch in the number 16719 to get the hidden menu, as mentioned above. I changed it from 1 to 0, as he directed me to, I got no black and white screen, it was fine and he said that was it, all done.

Insert a dvd
Press Bookmark (lower right of remote)
Press Menu (Mine was already on at this point)
Press 597 or 59719 I don't know which of these work because the player doesn't tell you anything.
I have tried a dozen of my burnt discs that previously said "incompatible." and I was forced to play in my son's X-box. An X-box seems to play everything.. Hope this helps

To reset this player you do the following.
While holding the play button you turn on the player.
It will give you a choice of 6 languages, #1 being English.
Select your language and you are done.
BTW I found a firmware update for this player. It took a little searching but it can be found at
http://www.sonigem.com/uploaded_files/software_archive/DVD802-2.zip A number of companies have involvement with this player and is sold under different brand names, including Koss and possibly Sylvania and others. All this seemed to me to be a lot of work for a 50 dollar DVD player so I hope I saved someone the trip. :)

This is all I did and it worked perfectly
• On menu (no disc in tray) press 16719
• The "hidden menu" appears.
• press OK with the remote
• press "0" for the region code for region free
• wait 2s
• press exit (to exit)

The last post (jorgeesquella, 10/17/04) is not incorrect, however, should be explained. When the "hidden menu" line appears - something like "Region...1" or whatever your player is set for, you must press [OK] as many times as required until the "0" appears after ...6. Pressing "0" on the keypad did not work for me. Then wait 2 sec., press [EXIT] and bingo you are done!
