This is the hack to view the firmware version... it also shows the prom values which appear to be a set of registers composed of 2 hex numbers per register for any hackers that wish to experiment.
with the power on
then choose TV ASPECT from the menu
then move over to the option 16:9 wide
press the numbers "1397139"
press "ENTER" it should show the version and some other data
press "setup" when u wish to exit
it is a good idea to do this before u experiment with hacks so that u can write down the original values incase u need to restore them
my values were as shown here:
Region No :1
Chip_ID :Pantera II LE
Servo_Ver :V2.04 MP.
Prom_Option :55 53 00 4C 12 55 01 FF
Factory Reset .. Done
note that my model is the same as the zenithdvd5201
and i assume that the my zenithdvd5551c has the same progaming as that model
also note how my prom values change as i add hacks

This was posted as a vcd hack but it did not work on my dvd to play VCDs. I believe it to be a macrovision hack.
1. Remove all dvds from the player and trun it off.
2. Trun "POWER" on
3. Press "PAUSE"
4. press "1472"
5. press the up arrow three times.
6. press "PROGRAM", "6", "PROGRAM" "5"
7. press "ENTER"
8. press "RETURN"
9. turn the "POWER" off and then on again
Macrovision should now be disabled.
