5.0 out of 5 stars Seems fine, and there's a multi region hack, 24 Jun 2008
This review is from: Samsung DVD-V6800/XEU - VCR/DVD Player Combi (Electronics)
Easy setup, plays my videos, plays all my DVDs, no complaints. VHS picture looks a bit soft, but that's probably the best it can be. I have a thing for tacky 80's b-movies that never made it past the rental market, so they've all been well used!

Found this code on a forum for another player and it works, make sure you don't have a disk in.

1. Turn on player with no disc in the tray. "No disk" appears on screen.
2. Press the "Repeat" key on the remote.
3. Press "57538" on the remote. A number should appear on screen, indicating your player's current region (e.g. "2").
4. Press the number for your required region (e.g. "1") or "9" for region-free/all-regions. The number will appear on screen, replacing the previous number (from step 3).
5. Press "Open/Close Tray" and leave the tray open for a few seconds.
6. Press "Power On/Off". The tray closes automatically and the player turns off. Next time you turn it on, it is region free (or whatever Region you selected in step 4).

I have a region 4 version and I used this code:76884 and followed the rest of the instructions and it worked.
The site I found my code on had these other codes:
R1 - 29334
R2 - 38767
R3 - 56732
R4 - 76884
R5 - 53814
R6 - 24462
There were replies saying that some of the codes didn't work for them, (especially the region2) but the region 4 code worked like a charm.
