In 2015 I've traveled to the US and bought a multi region blu-ray player as some blu-ray movies only have Spanish subtitles in their region B editions.
All I had to do was press 1 or 2 or 3 in the remote with the tray open and the region would change.
A few weeks ago the player developed some kind of electric issue and it would not boot, make noises and get stuck.
Took it Samsung tech and they've changed a plaque and now I am testing the player and it works BUT, the multi region capabilities are gone.
Do you guys have any idea how can I make the player multi region again?
Thanks in advance,

the codes are for the dvd side of the player, for the bluray side, you
may have to take it back to the place where you bought it and see what they say.

firstname.lastname@example.org. I think they convert the blu-rays to multi region themselves.
What should I look at on that link? Are there instructions to make the blu-ray player multi region again?
Amazon sells Region Free players and while 220-electronics.com is the best known, there's another site that's sometimes listed, but I can't recall the name right now.
As for a hack to make the player Blu-Ray region free, not likely if even possible. Most (all?) of the region free Blu-Ray players have a customized firmware chip(s) or board that was likely removed by the repair center. The only options are to contact the seller as stated or buy a new player.
When Blu-Ray was established, the alliance closed the door on easily hacked firmware with multi-region capability.
I've asked the tech guy about this and he said he had no idea, he just replaced the damaged board.
I will have to wait until I travel to the USA again to buy a new one. Thanks guys for your responses.
If you come up with any idea let me know. Cheers!
