This hack works brilliantly. Bought the latest version (2019 model in brochure) of DVD-S700 region 2 only. Put in region
1 DVD and nothing. Followed the hack exactly as described. Put in region 1 DVD and viola!

The hack posted worded like a charm.
I used a samsung tv remote for the other remote.
When you type the hack it says « operationnot available » but it works well.

For information, the hack posted here by LordCarpsalot also works perfectly when using the remote of a Sony TV connected to the player through "Bravia Sync" as alternate remote (yes, the Samsung DVD player activate Bravia Sync!).

I just purchased the DVD-S700EG-K version and the hack posted does not work. I want to to convert it to zone 0. One
comment is that thé hack works éven though thé screen shows that this operation does not work. I am unable to get any
accèss to région codes. Any ideas for this modèl?

I have used this hack successfully with two TVs. I used the Panasonic TV remote as the 'Alternative
Remote' when plugged into a Panasonic TV. On the second DVD player, the Panasonic remote would not
work when connected to a Sony TV, so I used the Sony TV remote and it the worked! The make of the
'Alternative Remote' may be the answer of the hack not working.

My model is Panasonic S700GT-k.
The code didn't work at first. Enter the code as quickly as possible for several time. Then the
hack works smoothly.
(use Panasonic TV remote as alternate remote)

PostRegion code hack posted by dp, April 29 2021:

Following the mentioned procedure on a Panasonic s700EG-K I can get to the "CUSTOM PAGE":
1.Power on
2.Open tray
3.DVD Remote: Audio-1-9-8-2-Subtitle
4.Alternate Remote: Pause
5.DVD Remote: 0

In there I can see the current region on top (here's what is written: "S700EG-K REGION 2 Y17 V14" but
I can only move through 3 options with the scroll button:
Exit setup

And cannot change anything.
Any suggestion on how to move on, pls?

I've tried this hack and either I'm too slow on keying the sequence or it is not working. My unit was manufactured August 2020. It has the Region 1 code. I'm using an old Panasonic Remote for the Alternate Remote. Any ideas???

Works exactly as described! Didn’t initially when using Samsung remote as second one but did with Panasonic one! Well impressed,
now watching a region 1 DVD on a region 2 player. Excellent 👍

R1 now plays R2 and R3

Used an old panasonic dvd remote

don't forget you have to go back to your main remote and press 0 to complete the process

Works on Panasonic DVD-S700EG-K.

I've used the android app "Universal DVD Remote Control" as a remote. You need to set it up first, it
will make you try several configurations, the third "PANADVD2" worked for me.

Confirm that you have the app working by tapping the "Eject" button: the tray should open/close.

Now, while the is tray open press the following button sequence entirely within the app:


The button sequence is the same of the original post, thanks for sharing!

just wanted to post to say that the method in the previous post with the android app worked for me too
with the same model Panasonic DVD-S700EG-K

you do not need a second remote using this method which is very useful

I had bought this dvd player specifically hoping it might already be region free as I specifically
needed a new player with a HDMI socket to play my old non region 2 dvds

It arrived region 2 locked though so this hack was super useful

The hack described here works great, in 2023. One thing to note, none of my other remotes did the job. I also had to download the android app on my phone. It's called "Universal DVD Remote Control" and it has blue/navy colored icon. Perform a minor configuration and see if it turns on your DVD player (select from a number of available sub options for Panasonic type, one of tyhe should work). So yeah, for everyone saying that it doesn't work - use the proper remote control as your alternative remote or download the app from Google Play Store.

Hack of the OP from 2015 works like a charm, just bought the player from amazon germany. I used a Panasonic Blu-ray remote for the 'pause'. Thumbs up! :o)

Many thanks for this hack which worked well with a new DVD-S700 bought in England, now enabled to play
American DVDs
