Just to double-confirm that this hack above works great! Just bought the 5960 from CircuitCity for $86.39 ($66.39 with rebate offer.) Applied the hack and I'm playinf region2 PAL DVDs on my US NTSC tv. Also plays region1 Dvds and region 0 China bootleg Dvds without problems! Thanks for the hack!

I tried the same. It worked fine for me.

Hack listed at the start of this list worked perfectly with the Philips DVP 5960/37 unit I purchased at 'The Source' in Ottawa, Canada in Sept 2006.

I connect the DVD player to the TV via an HDMI cable and it seems I need to power-cycle (turn off then on) the TV once when I put a region 2/PAL DVD in to play - I have not yet looked at the TV or the DVDs menus to see if this extremely minor issue can be got rid of and I will not mind in the slightest if it can't; just really happy I can play, via HDMI, my purchased DVDs from UK :)

Just bought one from
Hack works perfect. My DVDs from Germany (region code 2) and from US play with setting to region code 0.

PostRegion code hack posted by ben, July 30 2007:

I just tried this on my (brand new) DVP 5960 and it works perfectly! I also noticed while scrolling through the conventional Setup Menus, there was a place where you could select between PAL and NTSC, which makes this DVD player a great bonus to begin with.

After applying the trick here to make it Region Free, I tested it with several PAL and NTSC discs of varying regions. It worked perfectly with any disc I could throw at it. Fantastic!

The above code works great. My last player was a Philips DVP 642 that had a similar hack code. Both of these players that I have owned are worth every penny, and you don't spend many of those.

My tip: On any Philips DVD player you can eject a disc by holding the stop button on the remote for like 3 secs, you can close the tray that same way.

Worked for me as well. Not sure why I needed it though--this DVD player is supposed to play region 1-6. Is that only true if you find out the hack?

PostRegion code hack posted by rokrchik, January 21 2008:

Applied hack as noted above and worked brilliant. Philips DVP 5960 purchased
from in the US. Plays UK, Australian, New Zealand dvd's in addition to US
disks. Thanks!
