Question about Sony BDP-S350 Blu-Ray Player

1 Answer

Not all scenes in full screen

I just got my Sony S350 Blu Ray. The first (and only) movie I watched was the Dark Knight. While the outdoor action scenes played full screen, the indoor "two heads talking" scenes played widescreen with black bars top and bottom. I think I've got it set up properly in terms of video settings. Anybody got any suggestions for what might be wrong?

    Same problem, same film

    I am having the same problem. Sony BDP-S350 hooked up to a widescreen Pioneer Elite Plasma. I can only fill the entire screen if I put my TV on ZOOM (which then horizontally scales the image in an unaturak, awkward way). I am trying to get rid of the bars on top and bottom of the screen. Can anyone help?

Hey!

The full screen shots are the actions scenes that were filmed in IMAX... there's nothing wrong with your player or disc!

Crank 2 will not play in Sony S350


The software updates for your Sony BDP-S350 can be found at their website here. You will need to download the file, burn it to a disc and then load the disc into your player to upgrade its software to play your new blu-ray movie.

I hope that helps.

Letter box picture when viewing blue ray discs on Sony BR player


All blu-ray movies are in Widescreen format. So your tv converts the picture to make it look like letterbox. There will be some movies that will have those little black bars at the bottom. There will be some movies that don't. There is nothing to worry about it is normall. 

Hope this helps
