    A friend of mine just reported the same problem when I got her the crack. A lot of handset cracks involve opening the drawer first, so that *may* be worth a go.

    Thanx Alex but that still does not seem to work.
    The drawer closes after pressing first number is that supposed to happen?

    All I have is this cut&paste from my pre-xmas present research:

    Always perform a Cold Start before applying the hack below:

    Power on your player whilst pressing hold both the Play and Stop buttons on the front player

    After a short while you should be presented with a set of language options. Release the Play and Stop buttons on the player

    You will now need to select a language option between 1 and 6

    To convert this player to Multi-Region playback:

    Press the Repeat button on the Remote Control

    Using the Remote enter the code below, note that you must know what Region your player is currently set to in order to know which code is appropriate
    for Region 1 use 2, 9, 3, 3 and 4
    for Region 2 use 3, 8, 7, 6 and 7
    for Region 3 use 5, 6, 7, 3 and 2
    for Region 4 use 7, 6, 8, 8 and 4
    for Region 5 use 5, 3, 8, 1 and 4
    for Region 6 use 2, 4, 4, 6 and 2
    A code should be displayed on the screen indicating the current Region setting of your unit

    Press the 9 button on the Remote Control for Region free, or 1 for Region 1, 2 for Region 2 and so on

    Press the Open button on your player

    Press the Standby button on the Remote Control

    If the player sticks on FBI Warning screens:

    Press Forward Search x2 or faster, the disc should skip straight to the main feature

    If you have a player with newer firmware i.e. 5.02E try this:

    Power on your player

    Press and hold both the Play and Stop buttons
    on the player itself

    After a short while you should be presented with a
    set of language options. Release the play and the
    stop buttons on the player

    You will now need to select a language option
    between 1 and 6

    Press the Repeat button on your Remote Control

    Now using your Remote Control enter the code below,
    note that you must know what Region your player is
    currently set to in order to know which code is
    appropriate, for Region 2 use 5, 7, 5, 3, 8 instead of 3, 8, 7, 6, 7

    A code should be displayed on the screen indicating the current Region setting of your unit

    Press the 9 button on your Remote for Region free, or press 1 button for Region 1, button 2 for Region 2 and so on

    Press the Open button on your player

    Press the Standby button on your Remote Control

    Problems:

    This hack may not work for machines with the 5.02E firmware loaded. Try the Samsung V-5000 hack, it MAY work.


    I eventually forgot this handset crap and did the sensible thing, bought a player modified for my parents. Works a total treat!
