Default Region hack for Tesco's DVD-212 model required.

Good evening, folks.

I've been racking my brain for the past 3 hours trying to make my DVD player region-free.
I've trawled sites looking for anything that may lead me in the right direction but to no avail.
It's a fairly inexpensive model, no frills, with a Eject, Play/Pause, Open/Close unit interface and a simple remote control.
Many of the sites I've seen today are either telling me to press buttons I don't have or look for menus I'm not privy to.
Any help would be fantastic.

I don't know if it helps, but a friend has a Tesco integrated DVD-TV, and the firmware is obviously the same as Cambridge Audio used in their DVD players.

Not all DVD players can be made Region Free.

I appreciate your fast reply but sadly not. After searching through C.A's region hacks there's not much there for me. Thanks anyway, bud.

Sometimes it is worth going through the steps anyway, not all screens give confirmation etc.
