As a last resort for me, your expertise might help me out of what seems like a dead end! I signed up for AVS forums just to post this.
Last year, I purchased a used Oppo BDP-95 with a regionfree pro modkit. Being in Europe, essentially, I would need it to play back region B disks of course. I have some region A disks, that's why I decided to get one with a regionfree kit.
So far, the device was always set to region B. I used the instructions to set it to region A recently (out of standby, press "1" on the remote) and this worked. After watching the disk, I tried to go back to region B... but yikes, it does not work anymore. I have tried this 20 times, to no avail. Turning on the player out of standby by pressing "2" (as per instructions) sometimes makes the player get stuck on the "Hello" splash screen, OR simply does not change the region as it is supposed to. Region B disks are now refused with the "wrong region code" error message.
I think I read at some point that somebody had a similar issue here, but no actual solution was posted.
Am I doing wrong something essential? Anybody have an idea?
All help would be greatly appreciated!
