Press "Setup"
Scroll to "Preference" using the LEFT/RIGHT arrow key
Press "138931" and a pop-up screen will appear.
Use the UP/DOWN arrow key to choose the desired number.

*will work for both DVP3040 and 3040K. i think the diff is only karaoke which the R code will not affect*

There are 2 different chipset, which can be diferentiated by serial number (pls check the 3rd. and 4rd. number).

1A = MTK solution
2B = Zoran solution.

a) MTK region code hack.
- Go to preference page in the Setup menu.
- Press 138931 on the keypad of the Remote Control.
- Options will be available to be selected.
- Done !

b) ZORAN region code hack.
- Open tray.
- Press 99990 on the remote control.
- Done !

This refers only to 138931 sequence on remote control (which is not Zoran chip). It looks like on this DVD player the display of region code is incorrect. If it displays region code 0, that means that the player is set up for region code 1. If it displays region code 1, the player is set up for region code 0. The proof I have is the following. I have the movie called Snatch for Region 1. This movie will ONLY play if your DVD player is set up for region 1. If it is set up for region 0, it won't play. So Snatch is NOT playing when this DVD player is set for region 1!!! Thus my speculation is that Region 1 on display corresponds to region 0. Region 0 on display corresponds to region 1. I couldn't test the rest 'cause I don't have "smart" DVDs for regions other than 1.

Region hack for Philips DVP-3040 (Zoran chip)

If 3rd and 4th digit in serial number is either 1B, 1C, 1D, 2B or 2C, the player is equipped with a Zoran chip and the following works:

1. Open tray
2. On remote control press 9,9,9,9,x
where x is the desired region code (0-6 is allowed)
thus the code can be changed back to a standard one
3. A box displaying selected region code is shown. Done!

Pressing 9,6,6 shows firmware version and selected region code
