Question about Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc Player

1 Answer

Sony BDP-S300. I bought a Sony blu-ray BDP-s300 almost a yr ago.  It has been working fine until this past weekend when I tried to turn it on and it keeps rebooting and the CD tray won't come out. I have tried resetting it by holding the power button and the stop button, which did nothing.  Also tried unlpugging the system and just restarting it.  Still doesn't work.  Will add that I have never updated the firmware, but was working fine until today.  Any suggestions?

    I successfully performed the Firmware 4.3 update from a Sony supplied disk, about a 10 days before Thanksgiving.  The update was working fine, and I was able to watch the newer formatted BDs, however, after watching Madagascar, successfully, on the 1st of December, I left the disc in and shut the machine down. On the 10th I went turn on the BD and it would not turn on, completely.  When pressing the power button, the "power on" would display, followed by faint clicking sounds, after about a minute, the system shuts off.  Other than being able to "open disc" to remove the disc, all that show on the front panel is the FL Off indicator.  I tried disconnecting the power feed and reconnecting and turning on the system, but it continues to turn itself off.

    My BDP-S300 was working fine till a few days ago. Then, it won't power up. When pressing the power button, power on indicator goes on and after a few seconds it goes off and FL Off indicator goes on. One thing I notice is that the rear fan doesn't go on anytime. I don't know if it should go on regularly. I never worried about that before. This is the only different thing I could see. Everything else seems to be ok but the DVD doesn't stay on. Anybody?
    thanks

I had the same problem and sent an email to Sony. Here's the answer (it worked) :
Go to page 53 of Operating Instructions Manual and reset the player as indicated.

If you do not have the manual, here's what to do : Press Power On button. Power On light will come up. Now, Looking at front panel you have (at right side) 5 switches : Play, Pause, Stop, Rewind, and Fast Forward. Stop is the center switch.
Now, with Power On light on (it lasts only about 30 seconds), HOLD DOWN the STOP button and PRESS POWER ON button (the power on light has to be ON). This will reset the player. It worked with mine one.

    About "Resetting the Player" - I forgot something :

    After resetting the player you have to do the Set-up - after resetting the player you'll see SET UP lights on (left side). To do the set-up :

    1 - Turn on the TV.

    2 - If you already turned off the player, turn it on again.

    3 - Switch the input selector on your TV so that the signal from the player appears on your TV screen.

    Now, just follow the instructions at the TV screen.

SOURCE: our blu-ray disc player bdp-s300 won't play newest blu-ray

You will need the following:
1) Internet connection
2) Wired router
3) long enough ethernet cable to reach from your blue ray player to the router.

Step 1:
Eject any disks and turn off the blu-ray player by unplugging it.

Step 2:
Attach the ethernet cable to the router and the other end to the ethernet port on the back of the blu-ray player.

Step 3:
Turn on the blu-ray player and wait for it to load all the way.

Step 4:
Using the remote, arrow over to the left to "Setup", the up to "Network Update".

Step 5:
After the unit updates and restarts, repeat until it tells you "Already Updated".

That should help you play the newer movies, and even some of the older ones.

Hi
I'm Sorry, you cant use an Infrared signal Remote for a blue signal Sony BDP- whatever BluRay Player.
Only a BDP-B101A - B105A gives a blue light signal for S300-S550 to get past the opening menu.

Have purchased Terminator Salvation and 2012 on bluray, both Sony discs, they load and go to menu screen, however the icons to allow you to play or scene select etc do not appear, menu just plays over and...


Most likely you need to 'flash' (update) your BDP-S300's firmware. I had the same issue while trying to play AVTR in my BDP-S300. I downloaded Sony's latest firmware update, burned it to disc and popped the disc into the player... It takes 5-10 minutes for the 'flashing' to take place. AVTR now works in my player... Had to do this with one other Blu-ray movie about 18 months ago also.

Download the latest firmware version for the BDP-S300 here...

Sony BDP-S300 keeps skipping Blu-ray discs and then say's can't read disc.


The most common problem with blu-ray discs in blu-ray players like the BDP-S300 seems to be related to firmware issues. You can download the latest firmware from the Sony website here. Once burned to a disc on your computer you load the disc into the blu-ray player to update it.

I hope that helps.
