Question about Panasonic DMP-BD30K Blu-Ray Player
This unit is one year old, was stored in a closet for 11 months after being used one month (divorce situation). Worked beautifully for that month. Plugged it in to the same video setup I had before in my new apartment, and now refuses to play any blu-ray disk (says "NoREAD", then "STOP"). It does play regular DVDs...what a waste.
I'm guessing from the way its acting that it's out of warranty. Really angers me that for so little use I've got to pay someone to fix what is obviously Panasonic's problem. Any suggestions? Anything I can do other than drop a couple hundred bucks fixing or replacing this boat anchor?
I have had a similar problem. and Sometimes the discs will play then mess up a few minutes into playing.
I believe the problem (and my solution) is that there is dust getting on the lazer eye. Taking a cleaning disc and running it several times it has fixed it. It appears the dust gets on the Disc-Tray then transfers onto the disc, gets knocked onto the laser eye. I also cleaned the dust off the tray and have no had any issues, but will be watching out for anymore. It appears once the thing messes up that the units disc memory will not let the disc play any more because of improperly removing it without it de-initializing it. weird.
Until you can put some other blu-ray in there to wipe the memory.

Sounds like the DVD/Blue ray laser has gotten dust on it from being stored in a closet.
I would go to your local electronics store and purchase a cleaning disk. They are normally under $10. Insert it and run it though the player.
This sound no more serious than a dirty read laser.
Give cleaning a try.

There is no solution for this problem but a class action. Panasonic knows that this is a design flaw this the laser. Do a search on the net you'll find it's a common problem with this unit and Panasonic is doing nothing to fix the problem.
Like the others out here, this is my last Panasonic product. Incredibly poor customer service and flawed products. I won't be buying another Panasonic again.
