DVD Region unlock - Help appreciated

Hi, I have a HP640c (which i have found out from here is actually a rebranded BenQ1625) . Unfortunately it is now zone 1 locked after the 4 choices have been exhausted, and im in a zone 4 region. How can i zone unlock it or reset the 4 zone choices? Help please! :sad:

So how did you use up all the zone choices if your in zone 4?? Did you see if the firmware that updates the burner would switch the zone choices back so that you would get the 4 choices again? Did you contact or check the HP site before coming here to find out if they had a software to reset the choices? Some where I read that if all other means fail you have to send it to the company to have it reset to give you the 4 zone choices back…but search the net as well for unlocking locked out zone choices or search here as well there might be a post that address your situation.

You could try flashing the drive with the Dangerous Brothers firmware that makes it region free. http://tdb.rpc1.org/#HP640C

Blardy kids and their cartoon DVD’s on the PC did it unfortunately. Firmware is a bit of a mystery hence why im here in the nubby forum :slight_smile:

Cheers, that looks like just what im after…
