How to Make your LG DVD/Blu-ray Player Region-Free for DVDs

This DVD and Blu-ray player region mod/hack guide will show you how to make your LG Blu-ray player region-free for DVD playback so it can play DVD discs that are coded for region codes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. This region code hack is also known as a DVD multi-region hack or a region 0 unlock. Unfortunately the hack does not unlock the playback region for Blu-ray discs. If you need zone-free Blu-ray disc playback (zones A, B anc C) see our separate Blu-ray region-free page here.

LG Region-Free Method

The way to unlock your LG DVD or Blu-ray player is to set it to Region 0 for DVD disc playback. This can be achieved by putting the player into test mode so it brings up the region setting menu screen. To get into test mode you need to use a specially recorded data CD. Simply load the CD into your player and the test mode will be displayed on screen. Press 0 on your remote control to change the region code. Press pause to exit the menu and save your changes. You can now eject the CD and try out some DVDs from your collection!

  1. I want to know how to make a CD.

  2. The CD from Ebay worked on my LG BP 250 and mates BP 350.

    1. Great! Thanks for letting us know Dean.

      1. Where did you get the disc? The links are not working… 🙁

        1. The links to the discs should be working now JC.

    2. Hello,

      Are these in the U.K.? I tried clicking on the above link but they won’t ship to Canada.

      Thank and regards,

      Charlotte

      1. I believe the discs are sent from the UK. If you contact the seller through the eBay messaging system they might be willing to send to Canada.

  3. Looking For Region Free Code for the LG Bluray Model BP 250 Thanks

    1. Your BP250 player can be made region-free by using the CD available through eBay. See the link to eBay above.

  4. I have an LG UP970 which is 3D 4K. I don’t see it on the list. Does that mean it cannot be unlocked?

    1. [Updated] The LG UP970 is now on the list of supported players.

  5. I have n LG Hr936T Blu ray player with HDD, can it be made region free?

    1. Possibly. Give the disc a try and let us know if it works!

  6. Will there be a way to make it region free for blu rays?

    1. For region-free Blu-ray playback you will likely need a hardware modification, or buy a pre-modded player as shown here.

  7. have purchased 2 cd discs from 2 different vendors for LG BP350 manufacture date Aug 2020 both copies Do Not Work. It would appear LG did something different with the Aug 2020 machines different. If any one has managed to get it to work can you let me know please

    thankyou

    1. Are you able to ask the sellers if they have come across this problem before?
