Sony BDP-S301 has an upgrade to Version 5.3 to support the new Blu-ray discs. Download the software here (Click the link). Read the procedure carefully and follow it exactly. Note: The update makes use of a burned, finalized CD DISK, not a DVD Disk.
A Blu-ray player can play DVD or CD and still not play Blu-ray. It may play Blu-ray but not CD or DVD, or burned discs. This is all caused by the 'optical' a part that reads the disc in the machine. Your player will need service as a Blu-ray optic cannot just be 'dropped' into a player.
The most likely cause of your frustration with the BDP-S350 is that
your player's firmware is not the most current. Most often, the firmware problem is JAVA related and will not let the menus load at all, but freezing during playback has also been reportedly fixed with the firmware upgrade.
The solution is to go to sony's website, download the firmware upgrade, burn it to a disc and then load the disc into the player to fix it.
i think in these modles there are 2 lasers one for normal dvd's and 1 for blueray my stepbrothe plays blu-ray on ps3 all the time and his packed up but normal dvd worked so try checking that or using a disk cleaner (a special disk) and try cleaning the blu-ray disk
This certainly looks like a potential firmware issue especially if the Audio is there on the previews. There are reports also of recent firmware updates causing problems on some other Sony BDP units.
You might want to try a Blueray cleaning disk which you can purchase from any good Audio store first to ensure there is not a problem with dirt on the lens that may be causing this. Simply insert and play like a normal disk and it provides a cleansing action to the lens.
Otherwise my advice is to contact Sony directly to discuss the matter and find out if there have been any recent firmware issues.
The most recent update for your unit is firmware version 4.9 and this was released on 12th June 2009

BlueRay is a new high capacity disk storage media system. It has a much greater capacity than any of the other systems.
The blue laser light is of a much narrower beam width and higher speed computing technology, it is possible to now have a much greater capacity for data speed handling and data capacity.
All the new High Definition movies are coming out on BlueRay disks. To play these disks, a BlueRay player will be necessary.
The technology is moving at a faster rate all the time. In about five years, there is a newer system coming out that will even be ahead of the BlueRay. They are working on a new generation high speed plug-in memory modules at the consumer level. These modules will have their own full function microcontroler built in. The data will be using internal fiber optical pathways instead of metal conductive pathways. These will be much farther ahead than anything we have now.
