I used this hack for my Toshiba SDK990 player
and it works great.
Power on Player
Type 2, 4, 0, 3, 9, 6, 0
And Press 9 for region 0
at the upper right hand corner of the start screen should tell you
that the player has been set to region 0
Close the tray
Turn player Off and back On
Thats All Folks1

Thanks a lot. It worked for the Toshiba SDK990 (region 1) I picked up from CostCo two days ago.

I successfully used this today. However, when you press '9' after entering the key, the prompt in the upper right hand corner says '9'. I would have thought that it would be '0', but it's playing a region 2 disc now.

I bought my Toshiba DVD player ($59), model SDK990, in March/2010 at Walmart in Canada. (region 1)
I am confirming the hack procedure posted by the other users works. Here it is again:
1) Power on Player
2) Open tray and leave open
3) Type 2, 4, 0, 3, 9, 6, 0
4) Finally press 9 to play DVDs for all regions
A prompt of 9 will appear at the upper right hand corner of the screen to confirm that the player has been set to all regions. No other feedback displays until that last button is pressed.
5) Close the tray
6) Turn the player off and on again
I have tested that DVDs from Region 2 can now be played. I do not have DVDs from other regions to test, but I assume they play too.
Thanks for the original posting. It determined which DVD player to purchase.

Confirming the above instructions work ok on that model bought August 2010 at Best Buy (mfg 08/2009), except that "9" appears on the upper right corner, and not "0".
Now our player reads region 2 DVDs!!
ps: and the image quality is so much better than our old Philips.

Just purchased this player and applied the above hack. It's a refurb and the MFG
Date shows May 2009.
I wanted to let people know that playing Region 2 discs is possible and shows up
"ok" with an RCA connection. However, when using an HDMI connection the
image is not acceptable. Unfortunately, it is very jittery...when switching back to
RCA the image is fine...just not HD. Tried the same with Region 1 and there
were no issues whatsoever.
Not sure if anyone else has had this issue...just thought I'd put it out there. I
was reviewing this site and had 2 players in my hand...this one and a Philips
DVP3892...if I had known this, I would have gone with the Philips.

I bought this unit at Costco last fall and just got around to hooking it up - I read the posts to make it region free - but just for fun I put a Region 4 disc in -and it played beautifully - I then put a Region 2 (PAL) disc in and got the same result - you may want to try it before you fiddle with it -
