PHILIPS DVD755VR

HACK 1
1) Put your R1 disc in the tray then Power the player off
2) Power it on, and wait for the check regional code to appear
3) Press 'display' - right cursor key - 'ok' - then 'play' button
4) The DVD should start playing - if you want the Main Menu, press the 'DISC Menu' button

This works perfectly on most R1, R3 and R4 discs. The hack doesn't work on R1 copies of Fight Club and Titus, though. (These are both Fox discs.) The rejection screen is Fox's own, rather than the player's. However, all is not lost...

HACK 2
1) Go into player's set-up menu and select AUTO PLAY - ON
(If you're not too bothered about seeing logos, adverts and copyright warnings before your films, you might as well keep this setting.)
2) Put your R1 disc in the tray and wait for the check regional code message to appear
3) Press DISPLAY
4) Press DISC MENU
5) The disc should now completely bypass the menu stage and start playing

Here are the steps. I added some detail:

1. Connect DVD player to your TV, turn both on, remove any disc that might be in the player and close door.

2. Press and hold Stop button on the remote (not the one on the player) until door reopens

3. With just the default background displayed on TV (blueish image of disc center with PHILIPS on disc - do NOT press the System Menu button), press 2812 on remote. In a moment, the Region menu will be displayed.

4. Press OK on remote to cycle through region codes until region changes to 9

5. Power off DVD player (with Region menu still displayed showing 9)

6. Wait 2 minutes (according to some others' directions; I'm not sure the 2 minutes is necessary) then turn player back on.

Thanks to Jeff Cadow for supplying this hack.
