Sony bluray bdp-n460 blinking wait


I just had this problem on a BDP-N460. I had just moved to a new house and now using HDMI instead of componet, I also tried to do a firmware upgrade when I didn't have internet connection to by Bluray player.

Called Sony and they said memeory was correcupted and it required repair.

As a last resort I downloaded the latest firmware from sony onto my computer and burned it to CD-R (even though I was already at the latest version). I popped the disk in and almost immediatly it said I was already updated. After that all was working without issue.

Not sure what happened or what caused it but its working now.

We are having problems with our BRD player BDP s300 playing BRD. It will play regular DVD just fine.

You can review the "Important Notes" and "Firmware Update Instructions" on the page to get the instructions to install the firmware update.
If the issue persists after installing the firmware update, the would have been with the disc. Check the disc with another player, try different discs with same player.
If the Blu-ray Player is not at all playing any Blu-ray disc, then it may require service.

Have purchased Terminator Salvation and 2012 on bluray, both Sony discs, they load and go to menu screen, however the icons to allow you to play or scene select etc do not appear, menu just plays over and...


Most likely you need to 'flash' (update) your BDP-S300's firmware. I had the same issue while trying to play AVTR in my BDP-S300. I downloaded Sony's latest firmware update, burned it to disc and popped the disc into the player... It takes 5-10 minutes for the 'flashing' to take place. AVTR now works in my player... Had to do this with one other Blu-ray movie about 18 months ago also.

Download the latest firmware version for the BDP-S300 here...

We have a sony bdp 300 DVD. We updated the firmware several months ago and all the movies worked fine. However, now it will play just fine during the previews but when we play the movie, there is no audio....


Hi

This certainly looks like a potential firmware issue especially if the Audio is there on the previews. There are reports also of recent firmware updates causing problems on some other Sony BDP units.

You might want to try a Blueray cleaning disk which you can purchase from any good Audio store first to ensure there is not a problem with dirt on the lens that may be causing this. Simply insert and play like a normal disk and it provides a cleansing action to the lens.

Otherwise my advice is to contact Sony directly to discuss the matter and find out if there have been any recent firmware issues.

The most recent update for your unit is firmware version 4.9 and this was released on 12th June 2009

The support phone number for Sony Blueray Players is 239-768-7547

Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Many Thanks.

WILL NOT PLAY IRON MAN OR KINGDGOM OF HE CRYSTAL SKULL, BUT IT PLAYS ALL OTHER BLU-RAY DISKS


Go to the wed site and download the latest Firmware update to your computer. It downloads as an image file. The use a disc burning software like Nero or Cyberlink's Power2Go and go to "Burn Image to Disc" and burn it on a regular CD-R. Insert that to your player after turning it on and let it do its thing, it will take a while so don't power down thinking it froze or it will mess up your player.
After the update is done, your player will re-start. You should now be able to watch the latest movies.
Be Warned! Even newer movies might have issues playing. That's normal, just give time for the manufacturer to release an even newer Firmware update to play them. Just one of the things we have to live with for the sake of 1080P.
