I bought this player earlier this year and it has worked fine with no problems until now. It last worked, for sure, as of this last Sunday. Now, I flip the on/off switch and nothing happens. I did not get it wet, take it outside, drop it, kick it, or anything ... it just sat on the shelf untouched until I tried to use it the next night and hasn't worked since.

I have the same problem, tried it on 2 different (functioning) blu-ray players at home with the same result. Both are up to date with latest firmware but will not play this disc. Finally had to just watch the standard-def DVD version until I can solve this.
Apparently the disc I was using had something wrong with it, but not until I was almost 4 hours into dubbing something over. Changed the disc and started over and it works fine now. I guess with all the problems I had with the Emerson unit, I figured this one was about to buy the farm as well. Sorry to bother anyone.
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.
There are really only things that can cause that problem, either the microswitch inside has failed which tells the processor that the drawer has closed, or the processor itself has failed. If you have some experience working on electronics, you can open the unit and see if the drawer is contacting the switch, and if so meter the switch to see if it has gone bad, otherwise, I would recommend replacing it, as you can do some home laser surgery to yourself if you open the unit and look at the laser.
We have bought Durabrand sold at Walmart, it is normally not expensive to replace, and actually going by the one I bought my son, it has held up well.
Good luck, I hope the info helps.
FYI...the best suggestion I've seen is to hold the channel up and play buttons simutaneously....thereby causing the machine to return to the "factory initialized" state. So far so good for me. We'll see. photog1
