Works with most Sony Players

Step 1
Unplug the power cord of the Sony Blu-ray player. Plug the power cord back in. Turn on the Sony Blu-ray player. Turn on the TV to which the Sony Blu-ray player is attached. Wait for the "No Disc" text to appear on the front of the Sony's LCD display and on the TV's screen.

Step 2
Press the "Eject" button on the remote control. Wait for the disc tray to eject itself from the front of the Sony Blu-ray player.

Step 3
Press the "Disc Info" button on the remote control. Look for a number to appear on one of the upper corners of the screen of the TV.

Step 4
Press the "Disc Info" button repeatedly until the number "9" appears on the TV's screen. This number indicates that the Sony Blu-ray player is now set for "multi-region" and will play any Blu-ray disc that is commercially made.

Step 5
Turn the Sony Blu-ray player off using the remote control. Turn the Sony Blu-ray player back on using the remote control. Press the "Eject" button on the remote control to close the disc tray. Turn the Sony Blu-ray player off using the remote control.

Sony has had some problems in their playstation consoles with faulty firmware for dvd/blu-ray playback. Make sure your console is fully up to date, and be sure to reset the console again just to verify. If a problem persists and you know you did not damage the console, then contact Sony.

Disc won't eject & stops working

your disc tray is jamming on an intermittent fault and when it does work it is recording each time the eject botton is being pressed so when your watching movies or playing games it tries to eject the disc tray and causes an automatic shutdown it will definately neet proffesionally repaired and should cost about 30-40 pounds and get a guarantee with it bacause these faults can come back to haunt you.

JVC HR -J655EK Video Stuck

Hi hannah. The simplest way to remove stuck tapes is to remove the top cover. Usually just a couple of screws. Then remove the stuck tape and put the cover back into place. You can also look for emergency eject hole and insert a snall pin into the hole and attempt to eject the disc while repeatedly twisting the pin inside the hole.

Good luck!
