PostRegion code posted by Gudmundr, December 20 2016:

does anyone have any information about hacking this player?
it seems as all Bluray players should use the same code

but it does nothing for me,
my remote is labeled AK59-00149A
the Firmware of the player is 1011.0
its Region 2.

PostRegion code hack posted by Rickey, March 06 2017:

hi, i think you need to follow this step:

01. power ON your player. OPEN tray (please DONT insert disc , leave it blank).
02. press BLACK button below "C" YELLOW button.
03. press your REGION CODE (at this time, your region code will not be shown on your tv when you press the number).
04. the current REGION will be shown on the top of the left of your tv.
05. then you MUST QUICKLY press number 9, and voila your DVD will change to REGION FREE.

i will give you the REGION CODE:

1- 29334
2- 57538
3- 56732
4- 76884
5- 53814
6- 24462

I hope you success with you hack.

I tried that and nothing happened.
I think its the Firmware or something,
which is kind of annoying cause I have few R1 disks.

Doesn't seem to work in 1011.0.

Also in region 2

PostRegion code posted by lojorisin, May 06 2017:

I have tried every imaginable option on this player, and nothing seems to work. Open/Close,
Repeat, Code, Repeat again.... nothing

I've also searched for an older firmware, but nothing available anywhere online. I tried
upgrading with firmware from another Samsung player, but it didn't let me.

Really looks for someone who has been able to successfully hack the BD J4500R.
My remote is AK 59 00149A.

I even tried setting an activity on my Harmony remote, so that there was no human error in typing
the right sequence, in the right timeframe. Still, no luck!

For my BD-J4500R (Region 1): the hack does not work for me either.
I tried many times and nothing is displayed on the screen like it is expected.

Even a Region 2 DVD movie (that I own) that was duplicated with No zone does not work!
Seems that the PAL engine is disabled.

My remote control is AK59-00149A and I have the latest Firmware version.
Any idea?

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. Please help!

(Sorry about the 'all-caps', but the previous comments weren't clear to me and I found this
clarification on another site).

Codes for each region.
1 — 2 9 3 3 4
2 — 5 7 5 3 8
3 — 5 6 7 3 2
4 — 7 6 8 8 4
5 — 5 3 8 1 4
6 — 2 4 4 6 2

To James
Although we are not supposed to ask question, can we get the Remote Control
model you are using and the Region (country) where you are located?

It seems to me that these 2 informations are crucial.

PostRegion code hack posted by dan, November 18 2017:

James ive just bought the player and tried applying the code just like you said but im also not having any success. ive tried a number of times has anyone else had any luck

PostRegion code hack posted by Martin, November 19 2017:

I have tried the hack too some 30 times, fast, slow, holding the Repeat button 5sec... nothing works
I am using the Remote control AK59-00149A. The system seems to be the 1011.0 and i am based in region 2, where
I also bought the Player
Does anybody have any idea?

Ps. I tried with some older remote contols of an older Samsung DVD player too. It did not work either.

Its very easy,i worked.

PostRegion code posted by Nick, March 02 2018:

I have tried this dozens of times and it doesn't work for me. I have the Samsung BD-J4500R BlueRay player. The model number also looks like this, Samsung BD-J4500R_ZC Is there a video showing the steps cause i have followed the listed instructions and it does not work. My wife tried, 4 of my 6 sons tried and my best friend tried. I turn it on, press the open dvd button, then press repeat and then enter the code 29334. Then absolutely nothing happens.

PostRegion code hack posted by michel, March 21 2018:

The instructions given simply does not work. The standard remote control do not have a zone

BD-J4500R/XA Samsung
Nothing works. In addition one of my blueray disks is Region A, and not any of 1-6.

PostRegion code hack posted by Mina, July 15 2018:

After the main name of the model there are 2
letters after a backslash
My model was purchased in Italy and the
complete model code is BD-J4500R/ZF. The
procedures indicated in this forum to make
it codefree, don't work on this model. Can
someone find the right procedure ?
I catch the occasion to ask James the whole
model code of his player.

PostRegion code hack posted by Nuv, August 02 2018:

Procedure works.
Press power, open tray, leave open, press black
button below the yellow button for five seconds.
Then enter code for your player region.
A small black window with region number wI'll
appear on top left of screen. Enter 9 quickly. It
should unlock all regions.
Note that if small black windows doesn't appear,
maybe you got the default region wrong. Try all 6
of them by repeating procedure over and using a
different code each time

Hi, i have tried this hack. But it still does not work for me. Tried all the codes.
Does someone has another tip to make this work?


PostRegion code hack posted by Geeviz, September 05 2018:

5 Sept '18. Looks like above hack still doesn't work with the Samsung BD J4500R (region 2)..

PostRegion code posted by Ice, September 23 2018:

It doesn't work for me either. AND the remote has the repeat button in the middle. The button below the yellow button is subtitle.

PostRegion code hack posted by Ugis, November 10 2018:

Just followed the March 6, 2017 hack and it worked... Purchase the player in Middle East in
October 2018

PostRegion code hack posted by glassesgiraffe, November 17 2018:

At first, I tried the step for unlock Region 2 but nothing happened, even I already input the
number correctly and tried the step countless time.

When I almost give up, I tried each the code for each region, and it works when I tried the
code for Region 3 and hurried to press 9 to change to Region Free!

And my Region 2 DVD now can play in my player!

Maybe if you all tried the codes but nothing happened, you can try to input the code for each
region until in the left side of the screen show the number, then press 9 to change to Region
Free! Voila!

Thank you for the steps! You are really help me so much! :*

(Anyway, I'm using Samsung BD-J4500R/XD)

region code hack

PostRegion code posted by Ctho, February 17 2019:

Unfortunately, from what i learned the hack only works if your model connects online, if you have the basic none web enabled player, you're stuck with the preset region

PostRegion code hack posted by Forristicat, March 23 2019:

Followed the steps mentioned by Rickey and this worked the first time.

Thanks very much! I needed this to watch an older season 2 episode of 24 tonight! Lifesaver.

PostRegion code hack posted by Rickey, July 14 2019:

You need to correctly enter your region code and must know your
region code, then everything will be fine. Me for second time do my
step, it will always shows "0" which is region free number. Don ot
press 1,2,3,4,5, or six but press that 5 digits number.

PostRegion code hack posted by Kick, January 13 2020:

The above hack works,
But you need to turn on player using eject button, then follow sequence above

The hack doesn’t woeker. I tried all region codes, nut none of them works. I don’t zee a region number om the left top of the

PostRegion code hack posted by Nico Darko, November 10 2020:

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?

PostRegion code hack posted by Kev, January 18 2021:

Can confirm it works on a region 4 player. model BD-J4500R/XY. I had tray open and did need to use the button below the yellow button (held down for 5 seconds) and then use the 4 digit code for the region as has been posted above, screen showed 4 in the upper left and I quickly pressed 9. It changed to 9 and then i turned the device off and then back on (not sure if that was necessary) and it played region 1 DVDs. Hope that helps someone.

PostRegion code posted by KenM, September 05 2021:

As rickey said.. follow his instructions.. after 5 secs pressing the black button ( I didn’t see region code)… just enter your
region 5 digits followed by 9.. restart the dvd player and it works!

I am in region 3..

PostRegion code hack posted by mardybum, June 28 2023:

Hi all. I have a BD-J4500R/XU bought in the UK as already region-free. Just bought John Wick 1-4 in the same box on blu ray and discs 1 and 2 play but discs 3 and 4 do not. They have extra anti-copy labels on them. I guess they don't like region-free machines.

Basically I tried the hack as given:
Turn player on with the remote 'open tray' button.
Hold down the blank button under the yellow C button for 5 seconds.
Type in the 5 digit region code. Then press 9. Close the drawer with the remote, turn machine off.

Since I didn't have a region code to begin with, I guess it couldn't show me my actual region code top left of the screen - I got no codes at all. The screen showed absolutely no signs of me doing anything.
However I persevered and just went through all 6 regions.
When I tried the discs now they work, even though the player still shows no sign of me doing anything.
It works!

Thanks for the hack - I can now watch my store-bought discs!
