The same hack that Philips DVD-793CH.
Burn the CD as indicated and follow instructions. It worked perfectly well in my Philips DVD-783C.
Note that this hack was origianlly designed for LG-5000 series, but it works!

Confirmed! This hack for the DVD 793C worked perfectly on my DVD 783C as well. Just follow the instructions and you can't go wrong:

i tried these steps exactly as described below. it does indeed work on the philips 783C DVD player. everything below are the steps you need to take to be able to watch out of country DVD's.
Download the file lg5000.zip by clicking on the link above.
You will need Winzip or Easyzip as the file you have downloaded is in a compressed state or 'Zipped up'. Open the file lg5000.zip then extract or uncompress the file kpjc19_1.dvd to you hard drive in say your 'Mydocuments' folder. (Here is the confusing bit) it will create a directory in your Mydocuments folder called RMTM0000, this you accept and go with the flow.
You need a CD writer to burn or write (another familiar term is formatting the disc) a new disk which will copy the files you've just extracted or uncompressed ie RMTM0000.
You need CD burning software like Easy CD Creator, Nero Burning Rom or CD Clone
Buy that CD-R disc to burn to. Now I've read the text in the file about not using a 700mb capacity CD-R but mine worked. For information, I used a Memorex CD-R 700MB 24x from Staples (24x means the speed to which data can be transferred or read). This speed I think is the key to success not the capacity or size of the CDR.
Using the CD burning software you need to create a Data CD not audio etc, and add the directory RMTM0000 from your Mydocuments Folder in Step 2. That's all you need ! As the real file is automatically copied over as well. (If you've not used Nero or Easy before, there are instructions on the main Area 450 site relating to Sampo DVD players, but the same principles apply: check the second and third pages of the article here).*** When burning the disc do not use DirectCD ***
Switch on your player and TV and insert the newly burned disc. When prompted select 0 for multiregion and then ENTER, power off and you're ready to go !
