Same as 2385
1. Turn on power
2. Open tray
3. Click on home button
4. While in home, tap the following numbers: 1389310
You're done, but check to make sure it is region free. Still while in home, tap 8520. You'll see information appear. If you have a
0 after DVD, you're done. If player needs repairs, put in back in your zone by repeating steps 1-4. On the number in step 4,
change the zero by your zone number

I just got a used BDP2285/F7 (US/Canada model).
I tried the hack below and it works for DVDs only.
Before the hack, the player was Blu-ray Zone A, and DVD Region 1.
After the hack, it is still Blu-ray Zone A, but DVD Region 0 (all regions).
I can now play my Region 2 / PAL DVDs on my US HDTV via HDMI (does not required PAL/NTSC
1) Power on with no disc in tray
(no need to open the tray)
2) Press "HOME" key on remote control
2) Press number keys "1389310"
Current firmware in my player is 1.45 (specific to the BDP2285/F7 model).
There is a newer firmware 1.53 available for all BDP2285 models, published June 15 2017, that
allows clearing cookies when there is YouTube playback problem. I don't think I'm going to risk
losing the Region-Free hack by updating the firmware.

Quick update to the results I posted, regarding the PAL/NTSC "conversion":
After the hack, the player does play PAL DVDs and outputs the digital video to HDMI at the
selected upscaled resolution, but the refresh rate remains at 50Hz (instead of 60Hz for NTSC
Most current HDTVs can display HDMI video at either 50Hz or 60Hz, but it could be an issue with
older NTSC displays that only work at 60Hz.
