Will not play avatar blueray DVD


I have just had this issue, apparently the firmware needs to be updated. I am at 1.38 but there is a newer version (1.65) available. Look at the following link:

http://www.pioneer.co.uk/uk/support/software/BDP-51FD/index.html#download_18

and look at 'Download the update instructions'. This will tell you how to check your current Firmware Version and how to update it if it is required.

Sonybdp-s301 won't play 2012


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.

It freezes when playing a blueray movie. it seems


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 hope that helps.

We have a sony bdp 300 DVD. We updated the firmware several months ago and all the movies worked fine. However, now it will play just fine during the previews but when we play the movie, there is no audio....


Hi

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

The support phone number for Sony Blueray Players is 239-768-7547

Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Many Thanks.

Blu ray disc


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.
