Region Free Hack for JVC DVD Player

Does anyone know how to make a JVC XV-S40BK region free? I know there is a way but when you do it does it affect the DVD Player in any other way than making it region free? Like does it stop any previous features or anything?

Sorry, personally never had any interest in doing that.

Perhaps try a Google search?

There is a hack posted at VideoHelp.com, but the one person who tried it said it didn't work. Here are the posted instructions:

Unplug dvd player

Plug system back in while holding the "Open/Close" and the "play" buttons (ON THE PLAYER, NOT the remote)

The word "Test" should come up on the player Display

Press "9" on the remote until the display on the player says "00A0 0000"

Press "Standby/on" (remote or player)

Wait 15 seconds

Turn player back on

YOUR PLAYER IS NOW REGION FREE!!!!!
