Turn On the unit with the remote controller
Wait until "no disc" appears in the unit's display
Press Pause, 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9
The word "CODE" should appear in the display
Within five seconds, press the key that corresponds to the zone you want i.e. 0 for region free, 1 for region 1, 2 for region 2 and so on
Again, within 5 seconds, press Pause and Power
If the above fails to work then you may wish to try the following:
Put the player into Standby mode
Press 1 and Return on remote for region 1, 2 and Return for region 2, and so on. Use 0 and Return to return player to default region settings
Press P-Mode and Return to play DVD's with the selected region, auto-switching is Off
Press Audio and Return for auto-switching On
Press Angle and Return for MacroVision On
Press Subtitle and Return for MacroVision Off

I have a Sony DVP-NS400D & Sony DVP-S536D DVD player.
I can tell you that you can't hack your Sony to make it Region Free by using the standard Sony remote.
You must use a programmable remote such as a Philips Pronto: Check out this site to buy one:
Then once you've bought one, go to this link:
which is a thread to this site, and program 5 hex codes into the remote "Numbers 1 -5".
Follow the intructions on that link and it takes about 1 seconds to hack your sony.
So Very Easy.
Hope that helps all the other Sony DVD Player owners out there.
P.S. I know all this because we receieved the Pronto remote yesterday and hacked the Sony's with an hour or two. Brilliant.

I've tried the hack mentioned on my DVP-S536D. I used the winsamp.exe and the remote.txt mentioned on this site. I placed these on a bootable (windows98) floppy on a compac armada laptop with IrDA.
I didn't notice any reception of the transmitted codes, *but* after sending the codes in sequence: 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4,5,5 the player woke from standby. It didn't report 'SUCCESS', and wend back into standby rather quickly. I repeated the sequence, and again, the player woke after sending the last '5'.
Now I have to find out whether the player actually is region free. As I do not yet own discs with a region other than 2, I'll try later and report back.

None of the above hacks works. Forget it.
There is a chip IC101 chip called 9080 or something. And you have to mess with it. I think cutting the first leg of it will make your player region free.
If anyone dare, let me know if it works :)
