Bdx k100 toshiba

Go to the Toshiba support page for your region and look up the BDX1100. (In the US, the unit would be the BDX1100KU .) This firmware will work on the BDXK100. Download the firmware for this model at your computer. Extract the files and copy them to an appropriate media (SD card or DVD+/-R and then finalize the disc) that the BDXK100 will read. Turn on the player and then insert the media. Press the Setup button on your remote and go down to System and then use the right arrow button to select Upgrade and set the source of the upgrade. Press Enter and then wait for the upgrade to finish. (Make sure your system doesn't lose power during the operation.) Then remove the media after you see the "Upgrade has successfully completed." message.

I hope this helps.

I had the same problem when I made the mistake of trying to do a firmware upgrade via CD-R instead of the Network option. My player is no longer connected to the internet so I created a CD-R following the directions on Sony's site. The CD-R attempted to do the upgrade, but was stuck at 0/9 and I could hear the disc trying to read. The problem is the disc you created. You need to make another one. On the Mac, I used the Finder to burn the disc per Sony's instructions. That is what failed in the player. My second CD was created with Roxio's Toast Titanium, PC/Mac Data CD-R. If you have Windows, I would suggest using a commercial burning CD program, like EasyCD Creator and burn the two update files to the root level of the CD. Make sure the disc is finalized.
Next, you need to open the player to manually release the tray to eject the CD and swap it with your new disc. Remove the two back screws on each side. This removes the two side trim panels. Remove the two screws holding the top trim panel on each side. Then slide the top trim panel from front to rear to release the panel. If that doesn't work, open the CD cover door with your finger and then gently pull up on the top panel at the front edge to release the clips along the front, across the entire front edge. Then slide the panel back to remove it. Then remove the three screws at the front edge, and two more screws on each side. There is also one screw at the rear top edge. Remove the top panel. Then get a long paper clip. Looking at the front of the player, the manual eject hole is on the right side of the optical drive. Above the hole is an E engraved above the hole. Insert the paper clip straight into the hole and you should be able to push the release mechanism causing the tray to open. You might have to fish around a little. Slide the tray open and replace the disc with the newly burned disc (or obtain a disc from Sony for free through their website). Close the tray. You can leave the player open. Plug in the power cord and the upgrade will continue where it left off. It may take a minute or two, but you will see the VUP advance to 9/9, then finish. The tray will open and you can remove the disc. Close the tray and the player may reboot again. Once you see the No Disc message, turn off the player and pull the power cord. Reassemble in reverse order and reconnect your player to your TV and it will have the new firmware.

Can't get Blueray player to release DVD

You may now have corrupted firmware. did the dvd contain the firmware update?

Are you sure there wasn't already a cd in the tray? (Ie two cd's are now inside?

The easiest way to remove the cd if turning off fails is to remove the screws around the casing. Lift off the lid and the cd should come out easily, however if the update was corrupt or the wrong firmware you may now have a dead player.

Try removing the Cd as described first with the power off and plug removed.
Then see if the unit powers up and the drawer opens.
If so you may be able to revert it to its original firmware from the vendors site.

If it is a "chi-Pod" or other generic MP3 player, youll have to get on google to see if you can find it, I dont even know if you can get a firmware dump off a friends same model.

Doesn't recognize disks anymore

This is a common problem with the Lite-on LVW range of DVD recorders due to changes in the construction of more recent DVD R media. It can be solved with a relatively simple firmware upgrade.

Goto :

You'll need to have a blank CD and a CD/DVD writer in the PC you use to download the file.

Follow the instructions on the website to upgrade your firmware, this should then allow you to write to DVD's once again.
