    I have tried a cleaning disk. Not working, opened the unit up, opened the blu ray player up. Gave it a good clean but still refuses to play any blu rays. DVDs still work. Have contacted panasonic and requested a disk with the original firmware on it.

SOURCE: Unit plays DVD but no longer Blu Rays

That is because of a dirty or defective lens. When lens is dirty, the unit may still operate on regular CDs and DVDs and not be reading BD.

Try first using a lens cleaner for Blue Ray: Maxell 190054 Blu-Ray Lens Cleaner

If that does not work, the unit may be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

Being this a blue ray unit , I would suggest calling support instead of disassembling the unit by yourself.

Panasonic BD35 won't play blu ray discs, but will play dvds


You may have come close to what the issue is---Blu Ray for several design reasons is much more critical than DVD---seen a lot with this issue----either a dirty or a failing optical pickup in the unit---I know as when first started seeing it in our shop changed a few and since under warranty found the answer--optical unit was the problem---shortly after that they started just exchanging the cheaper units.

I have a three year old SONY Blu Ray BDP-s350. I bought a new blu-ray dvd. When I try to play it, just initial picture with title is looping. No menu appears. My old dvds play well. I checked this new dvd...


I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in playing the new Blu-ray disc in the Sony Blu-ray Player. In most cases, the issue might be with the Java content on the new Blu-ray discs is making these issues. The Blu-ray technology is developing everyday and adding more and more features to the existing technology. Hence it is required to make the Blu-ray Player up-to-date by installing the latest firmware update available from the manufacturer (who ever it is). Going ahead with the first step, please install the latest firmware update available for the Blu-ray Player.

Please click the following link to get the latest firmware update available for your Blu-ray Player:
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?upd_id=6385&os_id=99&mdl=BDPS350
I'm sure, installing the firmware update should resolve the issue. If you need any further clarification/assistance, please let me know.
Thanks for understanding.

My panasonic sc-bt200 wont play the 3d version of a christmas carol so were can i get the firmware to update it


The SC-BT200 is not a 3D Blu-ray player. You cannot play 3D Blu-rays on it. To watch 3D Blu-rays you need a 3D Blu-ray player, a high-speed HDMI cable, a 3D TV and compatible 3D glasses.

I need to upgrade my blu ray player - won't play new blu ray discs


If you are using the BRDVD there is only one update and it is a few months old. They are adding new security features to new Bluyray discs this month and all players out there need to be updated. The unfortunate side of the BRDVD is that Insignia is refusing to update the player although Funai(the comany that has made the player for them) has released a update that would work with it with little work by insignia.

To help get this player updated it would be good to go to the forums here and post that you still use this player. We got a update the first time so it should be possible to get another.

Good luck and enjoy this little player.

If you tried firmware update and it doesn't work and its less than a year from the date of purchased call Samsung customer service and claim for warranty . Panasonic has the same issue without explanation.
