Do it Yourself Multiregion Upgrade for the Sony BDP-S5000

You can modify your Blu-Ray machine to be Multiregion for DVD playback from Regions 1 & 2, plus Blu-Ray playback from regions A and B. This can be on a Region A or Region B machine. Simply tell us your models original region code at time of order so we can provide the correct components to unlock your machine. However, converting your machine is NOT easy, being a similar process to the very first DVD players 10 years ago from the likes of Sony and Pioneer, which required extensive modification internally.

Blu-Ray modifications can only be achived by stripping down your player to its component level, fitted an additional processor, firmware chip, and other components internally. This requires advanced soldering skills, so we recomend that you use our fitting service, or have a suitably qualified person fit the kit for you.

Once modified, your machine will act like 2 blu-ray machines in 1 box, as it now contains the processor and firmware from both Region A and B machines! To use, simply tell the machine which region you want (A or B) via the handset when in standby mode, then power up! Your machine will then run as the selected region until you change it again. This means that you can still update your firmware as normal, with no loss of features. , The unit will also play DVDs from Region 1 or 2 once modified also. You will loose NO player features!

WE SHIP WORLDWIDE - see checkout for delivery options.
