At one time there were illegal services which would modify your gear, if you paid and mailed them the device. I don't think that is possible now; it was never advisable.
The DVD distributors have a large vested interested in controlling sales by region. For a premium price, you can buy a multi-region player.
There is really nothing you can do unless you want to play the risky game of downloading firmware modifications which could leave you with a "brick" that won't play anything.

If you bought it in USA or Canada, it is region 1 for DVDs and region A for Bluray. Look at the back of the unit, region written there.

H i got sony bdp-s360 bluray i want to do multi region


If it's multi region Blu-Ray that you're after, then you've got a problem as this machine is simply not hackable without wholesale hardware changes inside the machine. The same also applies for most other standalone Blu Ray players from major brand names.

If it's just multi-region DVD playback then it IS possible but not advisable.

You'll need either a service remote (not sold to the general public and very expensive) or an Allsop All-4-1 universal remote control; there are reports that it can also be done using a Nokia N95 and Psiloc software. The links will tell you more.

BUT...
it's not advisable. It invalidates your manufacturers warranty/UK Sale of Goods Act protection and my experience of Blu Ray is that there's a good chance that you'll need the warranty at some point. The hack can also go wrong leaving you with an expensive hunk o' junk. Given that you may already have a multi region DVD player and if not can buy a really good hackable model for as little as £25 it just isn't worth doing.
