1.- Turn On Philips BDP2900
2.- Press the Home button on the remote.
3.- Press 1389310 on the remote.
4.- Press the power off on the front of the player.
5.- Power on using the front of the player.
Your Philips BDP2900 is now Region Free
This was the hack for the 2850 however, I did this and was
able to play my Region 2 PAL DVD's.

Can confirm above region code hack by CMoorehead, works on BDP2900/F7.
Purchased Nov/2012 from Best Buy, Vancouver.
Manufactured August 2012 (from sticker on back)
Systems SW: 2.48 (from Settings>Advanced>Version Info)
0.- DO NOT CONNECT TO INTERNET, to prevent firmware updates that may block hack.
1.- Follow CMoorehead instructions above.
Took 2 attempts - remote control bit cheap - buttons require firm press.
Great player - built-in Netflix, Vudu, play from USB stick.

Just wanted to add that this works
Brought new from wallmart today - manufactured Oct 2012, FW 2.50.
The remote feels a bit cheap and there was no on screen confirmation so I did it twice as above. No on screen confirmation ever occurred but it does now play both region 1 and region 2 dvds (I didn't test it first so it is possible, if unlikely it was region free out of the box)

One other useful tip is that if you hit 'home' then '8520' it will show the current dvd region. Entering the hack above sets it to region 0 but you can change the last digit to 1,2,3,4 etc to change to that region. Apparently that is needed to play RCE discs (but I think they are ancient history).

I can verify this works on a Philips BDP2900/12 bought in December 2012 in Helsinki, Finland.
I entered the hack posted by CMoorehead twice, since I accidentally pressed the open/close button after entering the code instead of the power button. Not sure which time it worked, but it did. And it was really easy. Thanks.

Switch on player (no disc in tray)
1) press home on remote
2) enter 1389310 with remote
3) switch off player (On player, not with remote)
4) switch on player
Now your player is region free.

Just wanted to say that I too, was able to make my Philips BDP2900 Region Free using the above mentioned method. Was very skeptical if it would work with such an easy process. However, it did work and now can watch my PAL - Judge John Deed.
Thanks to all involved!!!

Hi. While it worked for me for DVD region break but BD region
is still locked at C. Any help to break BD region code too?
Bought BDP in India and BD from UK

Another confirmation: above sequence worked fine on a unit bought at Future
Scrap in Canada, July 2013. Just don't accidentally press "Home" twice: digital

I can confirm that this works as well (the region code hack
mentioned in the first post above). My BDP2900 has firmware
version 2.50 and was bought in Sweden. Successfully unlocked
and now playing DVD from any region (I think, tried with DVDs
from Sweden, USA and Japan so far).

This hack worked on my BDP2900 Philips for Blu-Ray and DVD both.
Thank you so much! No to watch Mrs Brown's Boys at long last!

This hack with the remote control works. Second attempt for me because the remote buttons are a bit hard to press but it
works and you need to renter the code every time you unplug the power and wish to watch region different DVDs. Canít
comment on Blu rays because I only have region B discs. But I can now watch region 2 dvds and region 1 which is awesome
for my collection. Thanks to who ever figured this out.

Hack with the remote control works but only for the DVD but not for BluRay. Been trying to
upgrade my firmware as well if that would help change BluRay region as well but no luck so far.
If anyone has the solution to this, please let me and others know!
I'm running the 2.52 firmware atm and not been able to get a other update.

Are you still looking for a solution for the Blu-ray part?
