Multi-region hack for Yamaha DVD-S520

This hack page was originally hosted on DVD Reviewer, it was automatically imported by a not-very-clever script and may contain formatting errors and inaccuracies, sorry!

How to convert your Yamaha DVD-S520 player into a multi-region compatible machine



Note: This hack and all related pages is the result of extensive research and efforts from Allan Verth
Also see our Frequently Asked Questions page, list of Device Codes and also an extensive Play Codes pages


To convert this player for multi-region playback

This hack should work on all Philips DVD players with any firmware version, and other similar models by manufacturers such as Grundig, Marantz and Yamaha
Please note that if you experience problems with this hack you can obtain firmware version 7.03 and later by visiting the Philips
Syndicate to obtain files that you can burn to a CD-R and flash your unit to the new version.

1a. The following uses the machines own remote control:

We have heard reports that hacking some players using the units own remote control incurs a 25 change limit after which it will lock the machine in the last set region

We have heard other reports that hacking some players such as the DVDR-880 using the units own remote control can result in an inoperable unit, we recommend you use the OneForAll remote only and consult our Region Hacks forum for more information
Press the Play button on the player
NB: You may need to press this button on the remote control instead
Press the 1 button on the remote control
Press the 5 button on the remote control
Press the 9 button on the remote control

Although the above may appear to work on many units, showing the correct display as indicated in Step 2, the hack may still not work. In which case you WILL need to use Step 1b instead!

1b. If the above does not work, you will have to send the infra-red code RC6 (aka Codeset 4, Key 235 in nerd-speak) to your player with a OneForAll remote such as the OneForAll 6 (or URC7560) or OneForAll 4 (or URC7740) or OneForAll 4 Digital with the following instructions:
Configure your remote using the setup code 0 5 3 9
Press the Magic button
Enter the code 0 8 5, or if your unit requires a five digit code, enter 0 0 0 8 5

If you own a Palm Pilot, you may also use Pacific Neo-Tek's OmniRemote software to generate the RC6 code using a downloadable .pdb file.
Download the .pdb file into your Palm Pilot
Press the OmniRemote key marked as 955 Multizone

If you do not own either of the above units, it is possible to construct a cheap DIY solution by following instructions at the following website.
NB: Sending these codes to some players, such as the Philips DVDR-980, requires you to select a DVD player remote on the unit as the default IR device, as opposed to the DVD recorder remote it is factory set to. Please consult your player documentation to find out how to do this.

2. The onscreen display should show 11 spaces like this: '-----------'

NB: The actual display may differ slightly depending on the model of your player, may be shown on the unit itself, or may even not be visible on some models at all.

3. Using the number keys on your DVD player's remote control, enter the code 222 222 005 255. Note that this is 12 digits and the last digit will not show on the on-screen display.

NB: For players such as the Philips DVDR-980, DVDR-985 and DVDR-1000 units, you may need to use the code 121 212 005 255 instead. For players such as the Philips DVDR-880 you may need to use the code 121 212 005 00x instead, where x is the desired region, however this also works on other units including the DVDR-985 for setting a specific region.

4. Press the Play button on your DVD player's remote control

5. The onscreen display should now show the words No Disc

6. Power off your DVD player, wait 10 seconds and then power back on
