The 1600 shares some hacks with other Toshibas.
See firmware info - Turn player on with remote. Press Zoom, 6, 0, 6, Zoom. It displays info. This is a hated player because of it's lack of playing VCDs, but the firmware says "VCD off" suggesting it's disabled.

Installed an upgrade by JVB Digital for this unit (the only company making a chip for this model AFAIK). Functions perfectly, but was a lot of work to install. Involved replacing the ROM, a TSOP48, and installing a PIC. Not work for amateurs!
They also have a simpler hack for which only the PIC is installed (four solder points of low difficulty) which enables auto-region free (but not macrovision disable or manual region selection).
There is no UOP disable option for this unit, nor an ability to enable VCD support. :(

I have a 1600C and do the zoom 6 - 0 - 6 and zoom and I see is:
ROM1 Version V2.000 R1
VCD Off Buzzer On
A3D On Random On
KARA Off DTS On
VOCAL Setup Dimmer 2typ
V3D Off V-FMT Ntsc
JOG Off Mpeg-A On
And what I do after...for regionfree to PAL
Serial Number OXPL126481 and it's a SD-1600C

TOSHIBA SD 1600
Put DVD into player - wait for regional code violation screen to appear
Once this has occurred press the M (Memory) button on your remote
Press 1 for Title 1 and Play on the remote - this will over-ride the regional code violation detection menu
You can watch the movie by pressing Fwd on remote and change chapters by using the T (Title/Chapter) button on the remote)

I know its 2007 but I tried a couple of the hacks suggested here for the Toshiba SD1600 today to make it multi region and none of them worked. Just to let you all know.
