Region code hack posted by teepee7500, June 09 2008:
Finally I've been able to hack a Region 4 Samsung DVD 1080P8 using a combination of information from different forums. Here it is:
Turn on the player. Open tray. Make sure there is no disc. Press "INFO". The firmware number will appear. Close tray.
Wait until "no disc" appears. Press "INFO" again. the "no disc" sign will disappear. Press 7-6-8-8-4. the number "4" will appear on the upper left corner. Press 9 and that number will replace the 4. Press "Repeat". Turn off the player. Turn it on and it will now read any region disc. Enjoy watching!
For other region players, please replace 76884 with the one corresponding for your region found in the 1080P7 thread.

I've tried the hack posted above on a R4 player (as the example suggested)and there's no way after entering the numbers: no region code appears onscreen and pressing 9 has no effect. I've tried succesfully many other remote hacks and they work the very first time.
Isn't it maybe that there's something missing here?
Thanx a lot for the hack, but we've got to make it work. (Tried on TWO different players, same story). Peace. Carlos.

I also found the same instructions, and they also do NOT work for my region 1 1080p8 (with the code adjusted, of course), for region 1 it is, supposedly, 29334.

Try to do each step slowly and if you fail on the first try do it once more. It took me several tries before I got through. Be patient and you will be rewarded. Cheers.

3. Press eject to open the tray
4. Press eject to close the tray again
