My mate bought a Philips DVD-612 from Currys some time back and he was told when he purchased the player, that it was multiregion. He recently bought a region 1 disk for the first time and it won't play due to region locking. I found a hack which says to press play on the DVD while inputting 159 from the remote. This does not work. Can anyone please advise on what other options there are. Thanks in advance.
