SONY DAVS400

Unfortunately, this hack isn't very straightforward as it requires the use of a PALM based PDA (certain models can be picked up quite cheaply from ebay). If you have one or can borrow one then its pretty simple if you follow the instructions below.

1) Go into the services menu by doing the following:

- Turn your S550 on with no disc inside.

- (ON THE EQUIPMENT NOT ON REMOTE) Press and hold both the Display and Stop keys while turning the volume control to the right. When your TV screen fickle, release the buttons. You should be seeing the Service Menu now.

This should be fairly easy. I got to this step without any troubles.

2) USE the PALM with OmniRemote (http://www.pacificneotek.com/software/OmniRemote.zip) and Sony_DVD_hack.pdb (http://dev0_2000.tripod.com/).

3) I send numbers 1 to 5 with the PALM as suggested and tried it a number of ways such as sending 1,1 2,2 3,3 etc.
I did NOT see any data reset or anything else displayed on the screen as reported in the forums elsewhere. That's why I kept on trying for about an hour with various codes and just as I was about to give up, lo and behold, I tried playing a region 1 DVD and it WORKED. The morale of the story is that keep a bunch of DVDs (with various codes) handy and try it out.

While pressing the buttons 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 I did not notice anything unusual except button 2 would put the display into some kind of toggle mode but probably it is irrelevent and safe to ignore.

SONY DVP-SR700H

This hack requires the use of a ONE FOR ALL remote control.
See link below but note the following differences:

When you set up the ONE FOR ALL remote with the code 0533 you need to first press the DVD button then hold down the MAGIC button until it blinks twice fast (it will blink once first then twice fast after that) you then enter the code 0533 and then press the MAGIC button again to lock it in. The use of the magic button is note mentioned in these instructions for locking in the code....

ALSO when you use the 1,2,3,4,5 button presses you DO NOT get SUCCESS on the screen you instead have the unit show 0h then the DVD tray starts to open and close partly and continuously. You now enter 1,2,3,4,5 again and it stops and says OFF then turns back on again. (the instructions say it turns it off) you have to turn the unit off with the button on the machine. Pull the plug out for 5 seconds then plug it back in and turn it on and you are good to go!!!
