Question about Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc Player

1 Answer

Problem with playing

I have 2 sony blu ray dvd bdp-s300 players and am having trouble with them playing blu ray movies. i thought it could be the discs but both players are doing it. could it be disc problems? i get movies from blockbuster and they will load and when i hit play the dvd player shuts off. i have attempted to exchange movies 2-3 times for the same movie and have the same problems on all of them. It will play special features on the disc but not the movie. i have tried to access the movie via scene selection. it will load the scene and start to play then just shut off. this even happened recently with a new movie i bought. i couldn't play the movie but could only play it with the sing along option. It was mamma mia. this was the case on both players. It is so frustrating and i can't figure out what the heck is going on. can you help me?

Occasionally the software on most blu-ray players needs to be updated to the newest technology. The reason some discs play and some don't is because the discs that play are most-likely older movies or from a company that still used the "outdated" software. So the discs that don't play (most likely discs made with the updated software) won't play on your player until you've update the player's software. To do this visit, in your case, Sony's website for update info. There are a few ways you can get the info. You can download it directly to your player (if it has online accessibility) or you can request that they send you an update disc. Either way, most companies provide the update for free. Hope this helps, good luck!

My factory DVD player will except disc the ejects it


If I understand your rather cryptic post correctly...

This very well could be a Blue-Ray disk loaded into a
non-Blue-Ray capable DVD player. Your car player's capabilities MUST match the disc, otherwise, the disc won't play.

I've run into this very same problem with my home DVD players. Which both are non-Blue-Ray capable, but I was able to verify the Blue-Ray discs on my PC.
