I got a recommendation below (on a separate thread) to restore region-free capability to my Oppo-103 player from 2012 for which I recently upgraded the firmware and lost region-free capability (hardware-installed) - but not sure when to press X (CLEAR) – X (CLEAR) – Region (1, 2 or 3) in the Setup menu...When I go to Setup menu, I see Device Menu, Video Menu, Playback menu, etc. - where exactly should I go before I press this - I did press X (CLEAR) – X (CLEAR) both inside and outside specific menus under Setup - and nothing happened? Any suggestions?
Try this with your Oppo 103 it may work after the firmware upgrade.
Wait for the Home Menu, (if powered up from standby.)
Please remove the disc, if any, and close the tray again.
Now press the setup button to access the setup menu. In the setup menu, press:
X (CLEAR) – X (CLEAR) – Region (1, 2 or 3)
