Using your remote control do the following:
1. Power ON without disc. Press OPEN TRAY
2. Press the BLACK button BELOW the yellow "C" button.
3. Press 7-6-8-8-4 (or your region code).
3. The current region code will display at the top left
of the screen.
4. Quickly Press 9 to change to free region.
Power off with RC
Power On with RC
Repeat steps 1 to 3, your region code will now show "0"
"9" but still works

Hi all. Just tried this hack on a region 1 Samsung BD-J4500 but no soap. Entered the region code
29334 after applying previous steps and nothing appeared on the screen except the startup menu that
comes up when you turn the player on. Tried pressing 9 and again no joy - nothing on screen except
startup menu (play disc/photos/videos/music/settings etc). Was sitting right in front of the player
and applied the hack multiple times. Still wouldn't work. Any ideas?

i think this one only work on BD-J4500R, NOT BD-J4500. but you can try again.

I bought a BD-J4500R (Canada) and the hack does not work for me.
I tried many times and nothing is displayed on the screen like expected.
Even a Zone 2 movie (that I own) that was duplicated with no zone does not work!
Seems that the PAL engine is disabled.
Could it be the remote control?
Mine is AK59-00149A.

I bought Samsung BD-J4500R yesterday and tried this hack but it doesn't work. I only see the
startupmenu. I made sure Play Disc is selected, disk tray opened, tried to press REPEAT button
under yellow C for 5 seconds, nothing helped.

I brought my DVD player in Australia and followed the hack for region code 4 to play region 1& 2 discs and it worked first

It's not working on my BD-J4500R either. I have the 11.x.x firmware, this may be the reason.
Any hack update?

I also just tried this on an Aussie bought player (BD-J4500R) and it worked fine first time through and played a test disk from the UK. Thanks to the OP.

It worked for me. Make sure the botton is the BLACK one below the repeat botton. It has no title to that black botton.
Previous posting instructed to press REPEAT botton. It is wrong!

Try hack as per original instructions, but close the tray before set the region code. Worked for me.

Tried all the different ways mentioned, doesn't work for me either. Mine is a region 2/B BD-
J4500R/XN, firmaware 1011.0.
Has anyone with a region 2 player succeeded? Reading the comments it looks like this hack only works
on region 4 players. Can anyone confirm?
