When I push power/on button, the screen just reads that "a problem has been detected with this unit". I have tried leaving it unplugged for a day to reset. No luck.

SOURCE: Notice! A problem has been detected with this unit

Troy, see if you can get it into a factory test mode. Start by pushing the power button on; next push the home button, next push the help pad, next push the start/stop and help pad together for 3 seconds, push the test load, the contrast screen should display. Now you can cycle through the different tests or let it cycle through on it's own, each test should time out after 5 minutes. This test will include the main board operation. If any tests fail, a failure code will appear. To exit the test, press stop/start to scroll down the screen list until the screen darkens. In case this model number is not exactly correct you should be able to find a tech sheet under the consol to guide you through these test proceedures. We need an error code to find the real problem, almost sounds like a pressure switch problem. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Machine stopped at rince cycle.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(no promises but try this!)
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Power will not stay on. i push power button go right back off. unplug and plug back in the timer light blinks three times


Try leaving it unplugged for awhile and trying a different jack... almost sounds like the wall plug is reverse polarity and the tv is going into protection mode... especially if that is the first time you have used that unit on the plug

    Protector push power - dvd home theater system


    Protect mode will kicking whenever a fault is detected.

    Causes that can start protect mode are:

    Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
    Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

    Bad speaker wiring.
    Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

    Internal fault.
    Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
    If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

    Regards.

    Can not read disk


    I just sent my BDP-S300 in with same problem...the tech told me he couldn't duplicate the problem and I think I know why...the fix is to UNPLUG the power cable and leave it unplugged for a minimum of 2-3 minutes...this process clears the internal memory; it seems that if you don't clear the memory, it won't read any disc because the unit thinks the same 'problem' disc is in the drive... (don't simply hold down the power button for 5 seconds - that will 'factory reset' the unit to default settings and you will have to reset your video / audio settings)...you have to physically unplug the unit from the power source...If I had waited a little longer before repowering the unit, I wouldn't have had to send the unit in (obviously the unit was without power during shipping and when it was powered up, internal memory was reset and thus did not indicate any problems). One more trick I learned is this - If a disc won't eject, turn the unit off, and instead of using the Power button to turn unit on, use the Open / Close button...the tech said the unit will then eject the disc before trying to read it...Hope this info helps!

    Stuckon screen


    Solution:

    1. Clear the ERROR from the screen: Press and hold the MY CYCLES and BACK buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. The control will display any recorded errors. Please write down what error codes are shown on your screen in case service is needed. If a MORE icon is displayed on the screen, press MORE to list additional errors. When the EXIT button appears, press EXIT.


    2. Remove Power: Follow the onscreen instructions to remove power (unplug unit) and then immediately plug unit back in.


    3. Clear Setup Mode: After power is restored, a setup screen that begins with "Congratulations..." will be shown. DO NOT PRESS the OK button shown at the bottom of the screen. Press the START/STOP and POWER buttons simultaneously until the Home Screen is displayed. Your unit is ready to function normally.
