SOURCE: can't read blu ray disc
We searched the internet and found out that many people had the same problem as us and the reason for the problem is a defective part. You have to call panasonic and mail the whole unit back to them for the needed repairs. It really stinks to have to give up our player for so long but what else do you do? Never buy panasonic I guess.
I thought that I deleted all of my information from your website when we discovered our problem. Please do not charge me for this. Also please get rid of my info. If I ever do need help again I am happy to try your site. Thanks for asking.

Have you updated the firmware on it? I had a similar problem with a Sony blu-ray player and I had to download an update and burn it on to a CD then allow the CD to update the blu-ray player. What's the model number of your player, I may be able to get a link to the update for you.

This player is like many other Panasonic units in that it cannot be hacked to become a multi region model. Many Sony units have the same restriction. Both manufacturers typically fit region specific chipsets: hacking is therefore not a simple case of opening the disc drawer and pressing a secret button sequence.
The only multi-region hack which is possible is to the DVD-video playback. To do this you need a special service remote control (costs more than the player and not sold to the general public) and this does not make any changes to the Blu-Ray region coding. Note that hacking the player in any way invalidates the balance of any manufacturer's warranty and if you're in the UK you'll lose your Sale of Goods Act protection.
Although buying a service remote is not realistically possible, you can rent one (provided you're able to pay a large deposit against it's return). Just enter "DMR-BS850 hack" on your preferred search engine. I'd usually provide a link to a supplier but I don't know which country you're in.
Before renting a remote for this you may wish to bear in mind that you can buy a highly specified and easily hackable regular DVD player for less such as the Philips DVP5980 (around £25, HDMI output with digital upscaling, DivX, USB drive, progressive scan).
Not the answer you wanted, but I hope that it has still been of some assistance to you. Please return the favour by rating my answer.

Testimonial: "Very helpful information. Thanks."
SOURCE: My Blu-ray keeps saying no disc.
This can be caused by a number of different things, some simple ones are:
- Unplug for 5 minutes then replug, this will reset the processor and it may smarten up (just like rebooting a computer)
- Take the unit apart and using a Q-tip and lens cleaner gently clean off the lens of the laser...only do this is you feel comfortable. If there is a hair or obstruction on the lens it will not read discs. If it is still under warranty, send it in first before you take it apart, it may void warranty.
- If the above two do not work then the transport mechanism may be defective and the repair would be around 100 -150 dollars, which is probably not worth repairing and it is best to look at a replacement machine.
Hope this helps!
