Updating sony bdp s301
So after 3 attempts I simply put in the DVD and it played.
Therefore I cannot say which initial code finally made it work.
My blu ray was on the whole time I did the code with the words Home showing on the display screen. I disconnected the player from the mains and then plugged it in again just to check if it would lock again but it seems it is still region free. I have no acknowledgment and the player is still not zone free Use the Sony remote to bring the player out of standby, make sure there isn't a disc in it; Press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on the One For All remote.
Now I will put in the correct code 1516 to enable the URC to control the player. The light will start flashing; Put the player back into standby with the Sony remote.
To those people with region-1 players (USA/Canada etc.) I've heard that this method can't be used to make it region free though I can't personally confirm this.I was also wondering how one could reverse the region code hack? I am pretty sure it is possible, so the question should be does anyone know how? Only hacked it today, but I'll let you know if the machine dies on me.Martin WE have a bdp-s5100 and a URC-7140 and it did not work. We tried the 0533, the 000533 and also the 20533 versions of the code at the very beginning and none has worked. Has anyone tried this specifically with a Sony BDP-BX57 and All For One URC-7140 and had success?I do not know if what I did made it work, or if it perhaps would have worked anyways.I also cannot say if the "0533" or "00533" code already did the trick in my first two attempts because there was never any feedback (flashing) if the commands I sent were successfully received or not.
I have followed the instructions carefully as above and nothing happens when I point at my DVD player. My DVD player has no flashing light, or standby light.
