Power ON
Open tray
On remote: 9, 8, 1, 7
Press ENTER until display indicates "Region 9"
Press RETURN

I haven't had a use for this yet, so I actually haven't tried it, just did random googling. This appears to be the only supposedly-working code on the net I have seen, however.

this doesn't work for my unit. there is seemingly no response to any number keys, enter, or return on the remote.

PostOther hack posted by Jamieson, March 28 2003:


Regarding the "unknown 6 digits" hack, this is actually a direct memory read/write function. The following elaboration was based on tests of the Panasonic DVD-S35, which shares many of the diagnostic features of the RV-31.

(1) With the unit on and no disc loaded, hold down PAUSE and FORWARD SKIP at the same time, and press 8 on the remote control.

(2) The display reads "1R 2W". On the remote, press 1 to read memory contents or 2 to write to memory. On my S35, "2" does not actually produce a response. The following steps apply only to option "1", reading memory.

(3) THe display reads "rAdr******" and allows you to enter up to 6 digits representing to initial memory location you wish to read.

(4) Press from 1 to 6 digits on the remote, keeping in mind that the first digit cannot be a 0. (This means that memory address 0x000000 cannot be accessed without navigating; see below.) Note that this is a HEXIDECIMAL address. The following remote control keys (for the S35 at least) should be used to enter non-numeric digits:

A - Navigation UP arrow
B - Navigation RIGHT arrow
C - Navigation DOWN arrow
D - Navigation LEFT arrow
E - TOP MENU button
F - PLAYLIST/MENU button

(5) After entering 1 to 6 digits, press the Enter button on the remote control. The display will now read "rXXXXXX VV" where "XXXXXX" is the 6-hex-digit current memory address and "VV" is the hex representation of the 8-bit value at the current memory location.

(6) Use the navigation UP and DOWN arrows to traverse the memory addresses. Note that on the S35 at least, sometimes the display will fail to actually update when moving from one memory location to the next. For example, when navigating up from address 000006, the display may not appear to change. However, if you navigate up again, the address will suddenly jump to 000008. So you sometimes have to navigate back down again to see the memory location that it failed to display.

(7) Press the RETURN button on the remote control to return to the "1R 2W" prompt, then press the DISPLAY button to exit back to the "NO DISC" message.

I found an FTP site with a self-extracting service manual for the RV-31/RV-41u. It's still kind of relevant since the RP56 seems to be in the same family of DVD players.

It's got lots of info on what exactly all those weird codes actually mean. Especially check the TIFF images en07_03.tif, en080101.tif, en080102.tif, en080103.tif, en080701.tif, en080702.tif (they contain tables).

Anyway, get the file here:
ftp://ftp.chg.ru/pub/hamradio/schemes/video/panasonic/Panas-Rv3141u.exe

Note: I posted the link above in the RP56 hacks and it showed up in the "help us keep the list clean" link, and now it won't allow me to post again there (why? maybe tommorow)

hi there i am from australia, and i got some disk from overseas but would not play because of the Region codes,,, all you need to do is use the DVD Service Disc that you got when you bought your DVD player,, or do what i did was to ask, go to www.panasonic.com.au and e-mailed them about getting the codes removed so you can play oversea DVD, they sent me a disk for FREE and guess what it worked,,,, it comes with the instructions, here is what it says,,,

INSERT DISK- and confirm "STOP" is displayed...

USING THE REMOTE press "SETUP"

Go to "DISPLAY" menu

Select "ON SCREEN MESSAGES" then press "ENTER" button

Press ">10" found on the bottom right coner

Press "6" button

Press "4" button

Press "3" button

Press "8" button

A PASSWORD WINDOW SHOULD APPEAR

TYPE IN "3192"

PRESS THE "ENTER" BUTTON TWICE

the disk will be read, when finished remove disk

hope this works for you as it did for me

The service disc hakc is trure and unlocks everything, I got sent it when I sent in the voucher in australia for the free DVD's.....and it says on it that its too test for problems etc etc....but it asn't until today I looked inside the cardboard case and there were the instructiions as writtne in here. So I have been able to unlock the bloody thing the whole time!! Typical...hiding the unlocking thing right in front of me. Note only do it with the disc..and no....I can't make an ISO of it....you should all already ahve it.



PostOther hack posted by Karma, June 10 2003:


Panasonic of America will not even answer your e-mail about the disc. I wanted to e-mail Panasonic of Australia but you have to live there to e-mail since the required address field only lists Australian regions. I'm not even sure if they'd send one to me in the US if I put a bogus address just to e-mail them. I guess people in the US are screwed.



PostRegion code hack posted by DAVID,,,,AKA,, BUCK*J4F*, June 13 2003:


there you go e-mail panasonic here in australia and ask them to send you the service disk, injoy the DVD region free player like i have, hope you all have a great time, glad to help you all out



PostOther hack posted by Robert, June 21 2003:


All you have to do it email Panasonic Australia and say that you have bought some DVD's in Australia when you were on holiday and that you brought them home and they wouldnt play because your Panasonic RV-13 will not play overseas dvd, Say that you have heard of a service disk that enables you to unlock the codes and therefore allows you to watch overseas dvd's



PostRegion code hack posted by mitochondrion, June 23 2003:


I have one of the service discs... I am willing to make an iso available if:

1. I can get access to, or someone wants to provide me with, a DVD ROM drive,

2. I can figure out how to use it to get a rip, and

3. someone is willing to provide web/ftp space to host this iso image so that
it will be available to all. This means that the site has to remain up even
after you are done with the iso image. I don't want to deal with having
to upload the image every couple of days because the person hosting it
takes it offline after they're done. This probably means that you should
have a reasonable bandwidth limit because I expect many people to want to
download it. Perhaps one solution is to find several people willing to
host the image so that the bandwidth will be shared.

Anyway, that is my offer. But until all three are met, I won't be able to
provide the iso image.

Ace,

The code is 3192, not 3193. It worked for me and I live in the US.

PostRegion code hack posted by cmunsta1, June 25 2003:


I just received the infamous Panasonic Service Disc (aka Disc 2) and have confirmed that it works on the RP56 (I now have a region *and* macrovision free player :)

The only drawback right now is that I can't figure out how to copy this DVD. Tried Nero, but it won't recognize it's own image file. Will keep you posted.

The code for Region Free, is 3192. For Macrovision, it's 3193. (confirmed on my RP56 anyway)

However, there's a catch. If you apply the region hack *after* the macrovision one, then the macrovision comes back! So apply the region free code, then the macrovision code.

e-mail me if you know of a good way to dup this DVD.





PostOther hack posted by cmunsta1, June 26 2003:


Dup'ing the Panasonic Service Disc.

Got a duplicate to work and *very* soon will be posting a disc image on eDonkey/eMule. So what's the catch?... read on...

Basically, the only way to copy/burn this disc is to use an Authoring Burner. I used a Pioneer DVR-S201 with Prassi PrimoDVD 2.0 to create the image file. The format used by Prassi is a "Global-Image" (.gi extension).

You have to use an Authoring Burner and Media because the disc stores the region and macrovision info (or at least what it checks for) in an area of the DVD disc that cannot be duplicated with General Purpose Burners/Media.

To find out more about the different medias, read this white paper:
http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/Pioneer/Files/DVDR_whitepaper.pdf

Ta for now,
cmunsta1



PostRegion code hack posted by cmunsta1, June 29 2003:


As Promised, the Panasonic Service Disc is now up on eDonkey/eMule.

Anyway, Download the instructions first and read the ReadMes in there. There are two versions of the image available. The Prassi image has been tested while the Nero image has not. But the Nero image is nicely split into two files while the Prassi one is only one massive file. You decide what to download. Be aware that the images are over 4GBytes of data so play nice kids, it's going to be a *BIG* download.

You'll also need HJSplit to join the files together, and as mentioned in previous posts, you'll need an Authoring Burner.

I'm in the US and I wrote panasonic.com.au asking about support for Australian discs. The response I got was to take the player into a Panasonic service center.

Since this mod sounds like a permanent change, would it be possible to set up a chain where those who currently have one of these special discs provides a 'rental' or 'loan' offer, so the rest of us can perform the mod and send it back? I have over 500 positives and no negatives or neutrals on ebay, if any sort of references are needed.

Thanks in advance

PostRegion code hack posted by david, September 18 2003:


Hi everyone,
I just got hold of the service disc, and although I got through all the stages to open it up (password windows etc) I still can't play UK discs on it. Any ideas? I used the 3192 code, then I tried 3193.



PostOther hack posted by cmunsta1, September 18 2003:


To david:
Once again, the Panasonic Service Disc allows you to remove the region coding and macrovision. It will *not* allow you to play PAL DVDs on an NTSC player (or vice versa). The problem lies not with the region codes but with the differing signal standards of PAL vs NTSC. Your best bet for that is to either have the player modified to output PAL signals, or get a PAL player.

To shatt:
I'm not that knowledgable about the RV31 since I own an RP56, but your problem seems the same as mine with SVCDs. Either convert them to VCD / XVCD (look through this site to find a trick to change the header of the MPEG stream), or convert the stream to standard MPEG2 (not the SVCD standard) and burn it as a non-standard VCD format.




PostRegion code hack posted by david, September 20 2003:


Okay, to clarify this, I can't play UK DVD's on *ANY* US player unless I make physical modifications to it first?




PostRegion code hack posted by ToneDeF, September 23 2003:


Being tenacious and not giving up so easily, I believe that I have deduced why I was having DVD-R replication problems. After much frustration and lost hours of sleep, the problem turned out NOT to be an ASPI layer problem at all. The Panasonic DVR-S201 recorder does not support features such as "buffer underrun protection" and "over-burn." Apparently, newer CD/DVD recording software packages take for granted that such features will be supported by a recorder, and so they enable these features by default. When these newer software packages send commands to the S201 recorder, it gets confused and issues sense key errors. The newest software package that I did have success recording with the S201 is Alcohol 120% (only after unchecking the "buffer underrun protection" option first). Primo DVD 2.0 works great with the S201 but will stop working with it if you update the PxEngine .DLLs (this can happen unintentionally if you install a software package which uses the Prassi/Veritas PxEngine such as TMPG Author). Prassi DVD Rep 2.0 which came with the recorder also continues to work well with the S201 (unfortunately, it does not support creation of disc images from other discs).

I'm still not convinced yet that the service disc cannot be duplicated with a general purpose recorder with general purpose media. I'm going to ask a coworker who owns a general use DVD recorder to try copying an image of the service disc. If he is successful, I will perform a byte-for-byte comparison to ensure that the copy on the general use DVD-R matches the copy on the authoring use DVD-R. This is worth determining since the cost of a blank authoring DVD-R is much more expensive than the cost of a blank general use DVD-R. Also, more people own general purpose DVD-R recorders.

I've gone through the trouble of actually getting the disc, figuring out how to copy it, made two different images available for download (and making my internet connection suck in the process), sent a copy to someone to dup it for people, and now taken the time to help insure that said disc image files don't get corrupted (or at least can be fixed). I think I've done enough don't you?

If you really want it on bittorrent or any other file sharing network, stop complaining and put it there yourself. That *is* the point of these file sharing networks after all.

The Ultimate DVD Upgrade RA71


User Manual

Introduction

The DVD Upgrade is an advanced modification to your DVD player, which adds extra features and enables you to get more from your machine. The upgrade supplements the DVD player and in no way harms the playback quality or removes any performance features of the machine.

Players Supported

The following DVD players are supported by this version of the DVD Upgrade:

Panasonic HT70
Panasonic RV26 / Panasonic RV31
Panasonic RV36 / Panasonic RV41
Panasonic RV56
Panasonic RA61 / Panasonic RA71 / Panasonic RP91
Panasonic PV40 / Panasonic LV60 / Panasonic LA95

Macrovision & CGMS disable

All DVD players have a system called Macrovision built in to the player, which is designed to stop the copying of DVD discs to video. However, this system can have adverse affects on some projectors. For this reason the DVD MOD Upgrade disables Macrovision to solve any problems.

Region, features selection

The region switching works automatically for almost all DVDs. MP3 Playback is enabled by this modification. Press the following buttons while the player is powered ON. Power off and then power on your machine again. Default Regioncode is 1.


Remote control command Function
[1] [SELECT] Region 1
[2] [SELECT] Region 2
[3] [SELECT] Region 3
[4] [SELECT] Region 4
[5] [SELECT] Region 5
[6] [SELECT] Region 6
[7] [SELECT] Region 7
[8] [SELECT] Region 8
[PLAYMODE] [1] [SELECT] Default Auto switching ON
[PLAYMODE] [0] [SELECT] Auto switching OFF
[SUBTITLE] [1] [SELECT] Enable video interference impulses (Macrovision ON)
[SUBTITLE] [0] [SELECT] Default Disable video interference impulses (Macrovision OFF)
[AUDIO] [1] [SELECT] Default MP3 playback enabled
[AUDIO] [0] [SELECT] MP3 playback disabled
[ANGLE] [2] [SELECT] Default Initial video mode does not change

I've a question for anyone who has used the Service disc with this player (or someone who has used it on a RP56)

Will the player play RCE discs after such a modification? I've not seen any information regarding this, and it is important to me before I try modding my player.

I emailed Panasonic of USA and asked them about the service disk. They denied having a one for the DVD-RV31! So my question is- Does a service disk really exist for the USA DV-RV31 (NTSC)? I have seen a few sites that have this expensive "enhancement" disk but they are UK or Euro version so they must be PAL.

I am a New Zealander now living in Dublin, Ireland. I own a Panasonic DVD-RV31, that I purchased in New Zealand about 2 1/2 years ago. I had presumed all along that this is therefore simply a Region 4 player (as would appear to be the case according to my instruction manual). So, I wasn't going to buy any 'Region 2 only' disks until I could find a definite way of unlocking or modifying it. I discovered that apparently a hack did not exist for this unit and that I would need to get hold of Panasonic's 'Service Disk 2' to allow me to enable the machine to play disks that are other than 'Region 4 only' or 'Multi-region'. I contacted both Panasonic NZ and Panasonic Australia to see if by chance they could get me a disk, as I knew that Panasonic UK's view was that they in no way condone the 'modification' of their units, so therefore do not supply the disk. I received replies back from both country's 'helpdesks', and I quote:
Panasonic Australia -
"Unfortunately only our service centres have access to this disc we do not have it on hand ourselves. You may want to try contacting a Panasonic agent in your area to see if they may be able to do the upgrade for you."
Panasonic New Zealand -
"The RV31 was already multi-zoned when sold in NZ. There is an adjustment sheet to enable zone switching, which I have attached. The Service disk 2 is not required."
The guts of the instructions on this sheet are as follows:
- Turn player off with the power button on remote (standby);
- Select required region by entering the relevant code:
Auto Region [0] [Enter]
Region 1 [1] [Enter]
Region 2 [2] [Enter]
Region 3 [3] [Enter]
Region 4 [4] [Enter]
Region 5 [5] [Enter]
Region 6 [6] [Enter];
- Turn player on & play disc.
(When following this procedure you will not see or notice anything).
I subsequently haven't needed to try these as I now know that my player has indeed already been multi-zoned, and I since have had no problems playing Region 2 disks. I presume that they work, but have no idea if they would only work on NZ-purchased units or not, and don't know if the Service Disk 2 "not being required" is only for units bought in NZ and not Australia (or anywhere else)...

I am the ToneDeF mentioned by cmunsta in a previous posting. I just wanted to let visitors to this forum know that I can no longer provide copies of the Panasonic Service Disc 2. Back in February 2005, I sold my authoring DVD recorder on ebay. The last remaining copy in my possesion of the service disc was shipped out at the very end of January.

I am happy to have been able to help out as many individuals as I could. I encourage someone out there with an authoring DVD recorder to team up with someone who owns a copy of the service disc to provide affordable duplicates of the disc to other interested parties.

Cheers.
ToneDeF

I have now read all of the data included for the panasonic rv31 and have downloaded the various files on emule. None of them work and i could not repair the files either. I am hoping that someone out there can pitty those of us who do not yet have region free players and can send the service disk or make copies the way tonedef helped, please get in touch with me. Alternatively, if someone bought an upgrade or code on the net and found it to work, please get in touch with me.

TIA

Hi

RE: "all you need to do is use the DVD Service Disc that you got when you bought your DVD player,, or do what i did was to ask, go to www.panasonic.com.au and e-mailed them about getting the codes removed so you can play oversea DVD, they sent me a disk for FREE and guess what it worked,,,, it comes with the instructions, here is what it says,,, "

I contacted the Australian and USA Panasonic and this is what they said:

Aus:

Thank you for taking the time to contact Panasonic with your enquiry.



The requested disc is not available through Panasonic and did not work with overseas models using a different Region setting.

We are only able ti refer you back to Panasonic in the US.



We trust this information will be of assistance. However, if you do require further support Panasonic have a very informative product web site located at www.panasonic.com.au . Many of our customers have found that most of their questions can be answered here with our excellent Frequently Asked Questions section - for this, please see the following link: http://www.panasonic.com.au/support/faqs/ . .

Want to extended your warranty ? – It’s easy. Just call us on 132 600.





Kind Regards,
Panasonic Customer Care
www.panasonic.com.au

And USA:

Thank you for contacting Panasonic.

We apologize for the delay in responding to your inquiry and we hope that
this has not caused you any inconvenience.

DVD players purchased in the US can only play discs that have REGION 1 and
ALL logo as well as NTSC format only. There is no software or firmware
that can change setting or change region type of the unit. Panasonic does
not have any disc no.2 that will enable other region to be played on the
unit.

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank You,
Panasonic Consumer Support
