Is there a way to override the Region Code for a Magnavox MWD2206 Dvd player to play Region 2 DVDs from the UK? ?

    That model is manufactured by Funai Corporation for Magnavox and there is apparently no region-free firmware in existence for it.

    In general, the generic brand DVD players that are sold under many different names do often have region select or region free capability.

    Big-name types only sold as a single brand very rarely do.

    The best thing to do is buy an "all-region, all-format" player.  


    Region codes cannot be "overridden".  



    If you insist on trying, know these facts before you start:     

    Some machines can be modified ("hacked"); others cannot,  

    and those that can be sometimes don't work the same afterward. 

    Most can't be made region-free, and changing them back may not be possible.  

    Every model that can be hacked needs a different procedure, 

    so don't try anything recommended for any model other than the one you have.    


    Be aware that it is easier to "brick" a player than to change its region!

    I lived overseas and purchased a number of region 2 DVDs.

    I invested in a REGION-FREE DVD player over 20 years ago.

    They're really cheap now:
