1, Make sure that there is no disk in tray and switch on the unit.
2, Cold restart the player by pressing and hold PLAY / STOP buttons at same time for a few seconds. Release buttons.
3, Now you should see a set of language options, select your language.
4, Enter this code with remote: 57538, a number appear i top left corner indicating curent region setting.
5, Press 9 for region-free (or 1 for region one, 2 for region two and so on).
6, Press OPEN/CLOSE button on PLAYER UNIT to open tray.
7, Press STANDBY/POWER on the REMOTE CONTROL to close the tray and shut down.
8, Next time player is turned on it will be set to the new region specified.

Note that when this player is set to region free it will feed region fixed dvd's also, not like some players where you must change region to what the disk demands. Very nice.

BE AWARE: The hacks described for Samsung M405 DO NOT
WORK. After typing "Repeat" when you enter the code you
never get the region number on the screen, but the code
numbers as you type them.
I have tried to use "Menu" + "Repeat" keys and the
result is always the same...

You can make your Samsung DVD-M405 region free with this simple procedure(!):

I have try out all kinds off well-meant method for making my region 2 DVD player region free, fortunately I did not stop try out other methods. I ended up with this method for Samsung DVD-S128 that works!

Use the remote if not stated otherwise.

1. Without any discs inserted, POWER ON the player. Press and hold at the same time PLAY and STOP buttons on the player. A language menu should appear after a few seconds.

2. Press 1 for English (or the number corresponding to your preferred choice of language). Apparently this resets your DVD player and is allegedly a good thing to do before applying hacks.

3. Press REPEAT on the remote. (NOT the "REPEAT A-B" button).

4. If your DVD player is:
Region 1 coded type: 2 9 3 3 4
or,
Region 2 coded type: 5 7 5 3 8
or,
Region 3 coded type: 5 6 7 3 2
or,
Region 4 coded type: 7 6 8 8 4
or,
Region 5 coded type: 5 3 8 1 4
or,
Region 6 coded type: 2 4 4 6 2

(So if your dvd player only plays dvd's that are
region 2 coded you would type 5 7 5 3 8 )

5. After you enter the 5-digit number a number indicating your current region number will appear in the upper left corner of the screen, e.g. "02".

6. Quickly, before it disappears press 9 for all regions, or you can choose region 1-6 if you want.

7. Press OPEN/CLOSE. The tray will open. Wait for 15 seconds.

8. Press POWER OFF and wait for 15 seconds before turning back on. If you pressed 9 earlier you're now the proud owner of a region free Samsung DVD-M405 player!
