The next stage is actually transmitting those codes over to the Sony Blu-Ray player to make it region-free, so this is what you do after having programmed the All-In-One: 1) (Using the Sony remote) turn the Sony Blu-Ray player ON (if it's not already on) 2) ensure that there is no disc inside 3) Wait till the Blu-Ray player is ready (its display should read "Home") 4) (Using the One-For-All remote), press the following number buttons after each other: 1 2 3 4 5 5) If I remember correctly there should now be an "OK" in the Blu-Ray player's display 6) (using the Sony remote) turn OFF the Blu-Ray player 4) turn ON the Blu-Ray player, insert a different region DVD and enjoy your success! I purchased a Sony S5200 Blu-Ray player in USA and a RCA URC RCR003RWD.
I followed the instructions which came with the URC to program it for controlling my Blu-Ray player. However, the procedure to make the player region free did not yield any result. Any one managed to make region free the Sony BDP-A6000 with URC 7980 one for all remote control ?
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.
It is very important to use the 0533 setup code to setup your DVD controller - even if this code doesn't appear to work. In my case, pressing on the number 5 powered the Blu-ray player on and off.. Bonjour, Je viens d'acheter un lecteur sony 400 (Model BDP CX 960 J'essaye votre manip mais sans succÃ¨s lorsque l'on fait la manipulation avec la "One for all", le lecteur doit-Ãªtre Ã©teint ou allumÃ© (je ne comprends pas la phrase Use the Sony remote to bring the player out of standby). Maintenir le bouton Magic enfoncÃ© jusqu'Ã ce que le bouton DVD clignote deux fois. Neither on the remote (other than the one-time flashing that happens with every press of any button) nor on the player.
Has someone with a region-1 Sony Blu-Ray player managed to make theirs region-free?
To Marc: I agree it's confusing as I didn't understand it at first either, but I figured out that the first stage (the instructions with the magic codes above etc.) is all about programming the All-In-One.
I have sent the player in to have it exchanged for a new one, it is still under warranty.
But I am now a bit hesitant to hack the new player again..thoughts? Yiu need to wait for it to stop blinking before pressing the magic key again (between steps 5 and 6, etc.) I'm hoping I don't face the same issues as Martin (post #26).
