Pioneer BDP-f1FD Disc Tray Won't open

Tried to do a firmware update on this bd player but it gave me an error, but now I can't get the disc out the tray.. everytime I've pressed the eject button it comes up with 'please wait' on the screen. I've tried turning the machine off and on again.. same result. Anyone had this problem before or know how i can fix it?

    I had the same problem but instead of a blue ray disk inside the player is the upgrade dvd and i took it to the service and they told me that it cost's more to fix it then to buy a new one ! τhey say that the warranty doesn 't cover such case.

I fixed this on my unit from a tip on AVS Forum

Unit has "Power on" msg, follow these steps:

1) Hit power button for 5 -10 sec unitl unit shuts off
2) Press open / close button unit or remote first (do not hit power button first)
3) On the third try, the disc tray opened

I had James Bond Goldfinger in the player ( not sure if this had anything to do with it), I put another Blu Ray in and it loaded fine and is playing fine, hope this works for you

I have a friend who has a PIONEER Bluray Player BDP LX52.Despite having updated it to the latest firmware(3.71)it is not playing the RED(Morgan Freeman,Bruce Willis)Bluray.Sometimes he gets the menu and...


The firmware update needs to be done again.

Follow the steps below to troubleshoot if the BD player cannot read or play a disc:
IMPORTANT: Prior to following the steps below, go to the Drivers & Software section of the Pioneer eSupport Web site to check for available firmware updates. If a firmware update is available, it will be posted there with a list of improvements over the original or any previous firmware version. Some disc playback issues may be resolved by ensuring the BD player has the most current firmware installed.

  1. Ensure the Easy Setup procedure has been completed on the BD player. NOTE: Can't play DISC may display on the LCD screen if the Easy Setup procedure was not completed first.
  2. Ensure the inserted disc is compatible with the BD player. NOTE: Consult the instruction manual of the BD player for a list of compatible discs.Manuals are available online through the Manuals/Specs/Warranty link on this page.
  3. Select BD players may require that a USB memory device has been properly inserted into the EXT slot of the player prior to playing the movie. If the BD player being used does not have an EXT input, skip this step. NOTE: The USB memory device may need to be re-formatted to FAT32 format prior to inserting it into the player.
  4. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc.
  5. Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback.
  6. Wipe the top of the disc tray using a soft dry cloth before placing the disc on the tray. Attempt to play the disc again.
  7. Attempt to play another disc. Remove the disc from the BD player.
  8. Turn off the BD player.
  9. Unplug the power cord of the BD player from the electrical outlet.
  10. Let the player remain without power for 1 minute.
  11. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
  12. Turn on the BD player.
  13. Insert the disc into the BD player.
  14. Attempt to play the disc.
The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required

Bdp-s300 non responsive after firmware update


Please follow the troubleshooting steps and check the operation.

  1. Power on the BDP-S300 Blu-ray Disc player.
  2. Immediately after "POWER ON" is displayed on the front panel display (within one second), press the "STOP" button on the player. The disc tray opens and the player turns off automatically.
    Note: Pressing the "STOP" button on the remote control does not work. It is necessary to press the "STOP" button on the BDP-S300 player.
  3. If the disc tray still does not open, repeat these steps but vary the timing of pressing the "STOP" button in step 2.
  • If the issue persists, please unplug the Blu-ray Player for more than 2 minutes and then reconnect it.
Please let me know if you require any clarifications. Thank you for understanding.

I tried to play the Casino Royale Blu Ray disc. Disc reads and plays the included promotions for other movies. When I get to the opening screen for the actual feature, none of the buttons on the remote...


so long as its not a burned disc, in which the copyrights may have not transfered, it should work. However, try another blu-raydisc in player, if that works, its is the format of the disc. ask someone you know if they have the casino royale blu-ray and try their copy. try to isolate the issue as to the disc or player, if its the player, then contact the mfg. tech support.

My Samsung BD-P1400 is frozen on "load" and disc tray won't open


My player worked fine couple of days ago, then last night when powered up, message was "load" and it stayed like this forever, and tray open would not work. Tried everything, nothing worked. Left unplugged from power for 24 hrs and bingo everything worked as should. I suspect that the unit is still trying to load info from last disc which I stopped in the middle of some bonus material, even though the disc was no longer in the tray.

Blue ray player wont play blue ray ''Kung Fu Panda'' disc.


i fixed this exactly as previous posted solutions, however a couple of points.
a) recordable CDs work if you don't have a DVD burner.
b) I didn't have a CD burner that would do an "image burn", I downloaded a free copy of "Express Burn" and that worked fine. The disk needs to be "finalised" or "fixated", it should do this automatically, or it may be a tick box selection.
c) I got a "No DWLD 09" when I put the disk into the player. I found this was an incompatibility with the CD-R (Maxwell) I was using. I changed to JVC and it worked fine.
