Question about Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc Player

6 Answers

I can't get my blue ray player to play Avatar Blue Ray dvd. I loaded the disc and the player shows 0.00.00.00 but won't advance. I pressed play and play showed on the player then menu appeared. Menu still shows on the player. I did this a couple of times with the same thing. I haven't used my blue ray player in a couple of months, but I have never had this problem. I would like to see if you can help. Nothing shows on my HD tv.

Like Kelt67 said a firmware is needed....Avatar holds a lot of memory on the blu ray disc as that's one reason there are no trailers just strictly the movie and that's it on the blu ray....Avatar works perfectly fine in my PS3 but then my fiance tried watching on a regular Sony blu ray player and it just sits and loads forever....needs a firmware upgrade need to pop the firmware disc in and download by contacting your blu ray manufacture if no ethernet port on your blu ray player.

Try replacing the players flashdrive with a larger one, it worked for me.
The Avatar Blu-Ray disc would not play in my Sony Blu-Ray player, (model BDP-S560) after being on the phone & on-line with Sony for 1 1/2 hrs we finally found the problem. If everything is up to date with your player, i.e. system update, turn player off/on, unplug player etc., the problem turned out to be the "Flashdrive" I'm guessing it was too small or full. It was a 2 GB and I replaced it with a 16 GB, although they told me the min. was a 1 GB but recommended is a 4 GB I decided to throw in some extra space just to play it safe for the future. Thanks Sony

SOURCE: blue ray player wont play blue ray ''Kung Fu Panda'' disc.

Unable to play BD-R or BD-RE discs in the Blu-ray Disc® (BD) player. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif The Blu-ray Disc® (BD) player does not support BD-R and BD-RE discs right out of the box. However, a free firmware update is available that will provide compatibility with BD-R and BD-RE discs recorded in the BDMV format.
If your computer is equipped with a DVD burner and compatible burning software, you can download the update from the Drivers & Software section of the Sony® eSupport Web site and then burn your own update disc on a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc. If you do not have the capability of downloading and burning your own firmware update disc, you can register the BD player online at http://www.productregistration.sony.com/ and a firmware disc will be sent to you automatically; the shipping and receiving time for the disc is approximately 7-10 days via U.S. mail.
NOTES:

  • The firmware upgrade does not support BD-R and BD-RE discs recorded in the BDAV format.
  • Disc may not be played due to inadequate recording capability of the recording device.
  • Disc may not be played due to a disc being in poor condition.

Try completing the update.

The update file can be found here http://www.sharpusa.com/CustomerSupport/ProductDownloads.aspx

Select bluray disc players
model not listed
type in model number
Then click on search
Click on the instructions and read thme if you need to. If you do not need to read the instructions click on the firmware and save it to your desktop. After the download has completed open the folder and click on extract all files under folder tasks, which should be on the left of the window nearer to the top.

At this time insert a 1, 2 or 4 GB flash drive into your computer. Then in the window click on next if you need to or browse and then my computer and then the icon of the usb device itself. Click on extract or next. When it is done safely remove the usb device from your computer by clicking on safely remove hardware located near the time on the bottom right hand side of the computer monitor.
Click on the usb device and click on stop. Remove it from the computer and place it in the back of the bluray player. Turn the tv and bluray player on as if you were going to view a bluray. There shouldn't be any discs inside. Press the setup button on the bluray remote control. Choose settings. Choose software update. Begin the update. After it is completed turn off the bluray player before removing the usb device.

If the usb device needs to be reformatted or if the zip file folder is placed on the usb device instead of the extracted file the download will not be successful.

My factory DVD player will except disc the ejects it


If I understand your rather cryptic post correctly...

This very well could be a Blue-Ray disk loaded into a
non-Blue-Ray capable DVD player. Your car player's capabilities MUST match the disc, otherwise, the disc won't play.

I've run into this very same problem with my home DVD players. Which both are non-Blue-Ray capable, but I was able to verify the Blue-Ray discs on my PC.

Blue ray won't play Avatar?


There is a firmware update for the BD-HP22. I had the same problem with Avatar but after I installed the firmware update, it loaded and ran smooth. Use the USB flash drive that came with the player or any other usb flash drive to load the firmware update. Check the link below for instructions and update file from Sharp's website.
