Hi guys! I recently purchased this DVD system and I am now looking to turn it into multi region.
I have read some tips online on how to unlock it, but didn't manage yet.
Can anyone please help me???
Cheers!
Alan

thanks for the link badger0-0, but i got a problem. i tried doing it with the original remote and somehow i screwed up and managed to lock my player. now it says that it can't play the cd in the player due to region restrictions (what the hell did i do???). i will try with a one for all remote, but what is that "magic" button mentioned on that link? cheers!

The instructions suck. They are supposed to be for a One For All Kameleon 4 but the 0533 is wrong for the device code. Mine in 1903 and its definately a DAV-DX111. The magic key is the "Key Magic" key. I worked that out, and programmed as per the manual but hee haw happens.

How annoying.....any one else got any clues. I even payed £9.95 to DVDExploder to get the same instructions......baaaaaa:mad:

Oh you need to buy a programable remote control you cannot use the original one. Amazon sell them. do a search for Kameleon

The DVD needs to be put in service mode.

Notes:
1 - Unlike the instructions for other Sony DVDs found here and elsewhere, the device should be powered up. The hack procedure will not work with the DVD in stand-by
2 - Player does not display "SUCCESS" or "TIMER OK", it simply powers down then powers up
3 - Use an OFA Kameleon 4. However it can be done also with other URC programmable remote control units. Some programmable remote controls require a 3 number code; just drop the two leading zeros from the code (i.e. 00189 becomes 189).

1. Start DVD and wait for disk to load.
2. Press and hold the Stop and Eject keys simultaneously, then turn the volume nob until the Service menu appears.

Now, follow the procedure below to convert the DAV-DZ11 player to multi-region:

1. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice.
2. Press DVD
3. Press 0533 (flashes twice)

4. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice.
5. Press 994
6. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
7. Press 00189
8. Press 1 ( this sets it to key 1 - it flashes twice )

Now program function codes into buttons 2-5 like this:

* Repeat steps 4-6, then 00255 2
* Repeat steps 4-6, then 00095 3
* Repeat steps 4-6, then 00221 4
* Repeat steps 4-6, then 00079 5

To actually convert the DAV-DZ111 DVD to region-free:

13. Press 12345 - Recorder goes back to standby
14. Press 12345 - Recorder starts up

Haven't got a clue mate :thumbsdow
It sounds like you've changed the region, but to the wrong one.
I'd try again.
