Hi.

How do you fix an American DVD player to play UK DVDs?

Thanks

I suggest videohelp.com's DVD hacks section if you cannot find it here - their section is more up to date. It tends to be the case that the more well known the brand name, the more difficult it is to make it multiregion.

Not had any luck though, any ideas?

Thanks

Here's what you do. You're probably not going to like it though.

Go to your nearest supermarket and buy a DVD player. You can find them for about £40. Sometimes less.

Panasonic's aren't hackable unless you get them chipped. I think.

Aye, my first DVD player was a Panasonic and I couldn't find a code for it so I've stayed away from them ever since.

Asda have started selling DVD players for £9 this week though.  You can almost guarantee that will be hackable!

Quite amazing when you think about it. The DVD player actually costing less than the price of a typical DVD...
