    LG XB 12 DVD player - region free??

    I have an LG XB12, which is one of those bookshelf DVD/MP3 players. I thought it was region free, but have realized it is Region 3.

    Is there any way to make this particular LG system region free so I can play US and UK DVDs.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you look through the instructions here ...

    LG DVD Region Codes

    You'll see that many of the LG players have a common sequence.

    Try at your risk .. don't blame me if you need to call the fire department.

    Thanks KIA, but any way to do this without paying someone for codes that may or may not work - that website asks us to pay 15 pounds for the disk of instructions.

    I know, I am demanding.
