Hi there,
So first of all this hack will only works for dvds not blurays
- Step 1: open and close the disk tray (with no disk inside)
- Step 2: when No Disc appears press the repeat button (which is the button on the bottom row under the yellow button) then 7 6 8 8 4
- Step 3: when done right your region appears on screen, mine was 4 when it disappears press 9 for region free
Step 4: press power off button

For Other regions, substitute the number in step 2 with the relevant code below.
1 — 2 9 3 3 4
2 — 5 7 5 3 8
3 — 5 6 7 3 2
4 — 7 6 8 8 4
5 — 5 3 8 1 4
6 — 2 4 4 6 2

Good luck :)
