    I have used the Hack on my Phillips DVDR3460 DVD player to make it take Region 2, now it will not play other regions. How do I reverse this Region 2 Hack.
    Please any help.

    Try the hack/code again, except this time, set it either to Region 0 or your correct region.
    If cameras add ten pounds, why would people want to eat them?

  3. Set it to region 0 and it will play all discs.

    Hi,
    I thank you for your reply, but I am not sure what number to change.
    This is what I did to do the hack.
    Connect and turn on TV and DVD player
    - With no disc inserted, select ‘system menu’ on the remote control
    - Enter these numbers *SLOWLY* on the remote control: 5, 0, 1, 8, 0
    - Press ‘OK’
    WHICH NUMBER DO I CHANGE.

  5. Probably the last digit (other Philips units are like that). But that would mean you set it to region 0 already and it should play everything except region 1 discs with RCE protection. I believe Australia is region 4.

    Well, according to this page:
    https://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks/philips-dvdr3460/8641
    ...it should pop up a menu showing the region selection after you enter 50180 (but before pressing OK).

    That's the way I read it at first. But I decided that what it probably meant was there would be a status page showing the region code that was selected.

    Maybe. It's hard to tell without having the player around to look at, of course.

    It probably shouldn't behave that much differently from, say, the 642, or the 5990, in theory.
