Question about Sony BDP-S350 Blu-Ray Player

1 Answer

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

We recently bought a Sony Blue Ray player and I believe that it is the Costco version of the Sony350. To date, every Blue Ray movie which we have viewed, including the Pirates of the Caribbean series, has been in letter box. Is there a way to fill our tv screen. We are using an HDMI with a DVI adaptor to connect the player to the television.

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

Year old S350 plays normal DVDs happily but (recently) wont load up Blu Ray disks. Grinds away loading and eventually says disc not recognised.


Hi:
This is due to a faulty optics lens or mech assembly, the laser used for normal DVS's are red but when Blue ray is inserted the laster uses blue light or blue laser, you may have a defective laser.

Blue ray player wont play blue ray ''Kung Fu Panda'' disc.


i fixed this exactly as previous posted solutions, however a couple of points.
a) recordable CDs work if you don't have a DVD burner.
b) I didn't have a CD burner that would do an "image burn", I downloaded a free copy of "Express Burn" and that worked fine. The disk needs to be "finalised" or "fixated", it should do this automatically, or it may be a tick box selection.
c) I got a "No DWLD 09" when I put the disk into the player. I found this was an incompatibility with the CD-R (Maxwell) I was using. I changed to JVC and it worked fine.
