When I press the BLACK button on the RC of the BD-J5500/ZF, nothing happens.

After having pressed the BLACK button on the RC of the player (model code: BD-J550/ZF), I entered the number 57538 but my current region code "2" was not displayed on the screen.

Hi, I have been trying to use that hack on a BD-J5500/EN purchased in Germany in January 2018. It lists, that the current firmware version is B-JM63BSPWWB-1018.0 and whatever I try, I cannot get it to display the region code number as described in the hack. Can you please report, which firmware version was on the player, where the hack worked ?

Using a slight variation of Sallyj’s instructions I was able to successfully reset the DVD player’s region code to “9”. Foreign DVDs that were previously rejected now play well. I have the Samsung remote control AK59-00149A, and Samsung DVD player model # BD-J5500/ZS, purchased in South America and originally set to region “4” (code 76884).
The procedure I used is as follows. Timing seems important. All button presses on the remote control should be done in series with no intervening delays.
Power on the TV and DVD player (no disk inserted)
On the remote control press the third button in the bottom row (same as “BLACK button BELOW the yellow "C" button” per Sallyj)
Enter your unit’s 5-digit region code.
A “9” then appears momentarily in the upper left quadrant of the screen. The procedure is successfully completed.
Thus in my case the entries on the remote control (steps 2-4) were:
[BLACK button] 7 6 8 8 4 9
all pressed in series without pausing.

Tried region 4, DVD getting region error code.
Tried both variation above (with and without eject), pressed keys quickly without delay.
