Holding the info button with the tray out tells me my player is definitely region two, so the code should either be repeat 5 7 5 3 8, or apparently Samsung has also used 3, 8, 7, 6, 7 for that region, but neither work with repeat, stop, or the subtitle button in front of the code, or surrounding it. with tray in or out, or waiting 30 seconds or 1 min after booting, or open/close the tray then wait for 'no disc' to disappear.
One report of simply letting it boot with the HDMI cable unplugged, and then plug it in after it's fully finished also hadn't helped.
I've never seen it display the current region from the code (only the info button trick) let alone been able to change it, I've seen some reports that the region isn't shown but keying in the sequence works anyway but I've had no luck, and a huge number of attempts.
I also found this so I would try each code to see if any work.
Wait for system to load (boy it's quick).
Open/close disc tray (I didn't do this)
Press Repeat (try Stop if you don't have repeat on the remote).
Type in your region code (Oz was 76884, same as earlier models)
Current region number appears in top right corner.
Quickly press 9 to go multi-region free.
9 appears and seems to be set.
1 - 2 9 3 3 4
2 - 5 7 5 3 8
3 - 5 6 7 3 2
4 - 7 6 8 8 4
5 - 5 3 8 1 4
I thought I had taken too long to make the change and started with Repeat, 76884 again but I actually just changed the region to 7.
So I hit Repeat, 76884 and 7 came up, pressed 9 and all good.
Seems we have a bit more time to type in the code for the change.
Now when I hit the Repeat 76884, the region is shown as 9.
Edit: I have also read that UK versions of this machine have been locked down and nobody has been able to crack them with out actually adding a mod chip.
