Followed instructions and it worked, however, when I inserted
one of my Region 2 DVDs, it told me that it couldn't recognize
the format. Tried it with two different TVs to see if maybe
that was the problem, and the other TV said the format wasn't
supported. Tried Region 1 DVD, and it worked just fine. Not
sure where to go from here.

Got this DVD player in June 2014 in the USA from Best Buy and
the 1st hack listed here works perfectly!

This worked great on a system purchased in the US - thanks ! Only thing I noticed is that I have to use the composite (red, white, yellow) out to view region 2 dvds, HDMI output doesn't seem to work. Perfect for my ancient pre-HD UK dvds though

Purchased a Philips 2880 in Mexico, expecting to follow the instructions above to be able to play US DVDs, but was surprised
to find that the DVDs player played US DVDs right out of the box without any hack. The manual clearly states that the player
only plays region 4 dvds.

The hacks aren't working on the 2880. Wonder if Philips changed something. Next chapter, previous chapter just goes back
and forth between preference and audio. Nothing happens.

i think that the philips 2800/2880 machines have fallen by the wayside, like so many others. they used to be hackable & available at most local stores for $30 & $40, but are no longer available, even on the target website. i'm guessing that anything left in a store will be unhackable. if you look on the websites which sell all region players, you'll see these machines for around $100, which suggests a giant import duty. what i've been doing lately is getting decent machines from goodwill for 8 to 10 bucks. the older ones seem to all have one of two hacks listed here.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. In Germany, bought a Philips 2880 pre-set for code 2. In 10
seconds, as per instructions, I was able to change to code works!!!

Just got a region 2 DVP2852 model here in Germany and the hack worked like a charm.

Set it to region 0 and tried with a region 1 DVD, works fine.

Tried the code on the DVP2980/12 and it worked.

Looks like it works for multiple systems.
