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!
