I have a Panasonic DVD player DMR-PWT500 which will not play region 2 DVD's how do I unlock it please


Bluray players cannot be updated to add more regions. You will need to purchase a Bluray player that supports the region of the movies you are trying to watch.

I had the same issue with a Samsung 1580 BD player. Stopping the movie ans starting it again could sometimes solve the problem for a little while. The problem only occured when using bitstream sound. Switching to PCM never showed the problem. The player was faulty and was replaced by the shop.

I have Avatar Blu-ray movie and it plays on my BDP-BX2 11.4.006 version. Take it back and get it exchanged. Try new one. May have to go to another store since the same shipments (bulk) that are at your store are ALL the same. I have done this 4 times with 4 different movies and 2 of them worked. I'm getting the .008 update but, I'm starting to think the Blu-ray disc are the problem since I have one that is made in Mexico??? I don't think they are all being made correctly. Too Cheap!

I have a Sharp BD-Hp20 and i already got the firmware update and still cannot watch Avatar Bluray please help.


Make sure that you do have Version HU9071500 installed--->press setup button------>settings-------> version. If it is installed then after you insert Avatar it takes between 8 and 10 minutes before you can select play movie.

My Sharp Blu-Ray Player shows pixalation while watching Avator? Also, it shows the scene tracking while the movie is playing. How do I stop both of these?


First make sure you have the most current firmware installed, which is HU9071500. If you have done so please disregard the following that is for others that do not know how to do so: No disc should be in the player. Press the setup button. Go to settings and enter. Go to version and enter. Note your current version.

Try another bluray copy of the movie advancing it to the part of the movie that is giving you the problem. If you are still having the same problem or if you have tried the movie on another bluray player and this is not happening it could be the DVD drive and if so the unit needs to be repaired.

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...

Blu Ray doesn't seem to work correctly


In all reality you are probably not doing anything wrong. You have a great TV and a pretty good BluRay player.

One thing about looking at movies in a store is usually you look at the screen further away than you usually do at home. Also, some of the demo disks they use are recored at a higher bit rate than many movies you can buy. Store displays are designed to show off TV units to make them sell, they do not care about them after you leave the store.

Many people do not know that some Bluray movies can actually look worse than DVD. Avatar for example is encoded at an average of 28 Mpbs on Bluray, and Avatar on DVD is encoded at around 7 Mbps. However, note that a 1080p screen has 6 times as many pixels as DVD, but in this case only 4 times the amount of data for the picture, so in all actuality Bluray has a lower quality picture per pixel than DVD. Some Bluray movies claim that they are 1080p, but are encoded as low as 14 Mbps (They do this so they can fit the movie on a single layer Bluray disk instead of the standard dual layer disks.) Another thing to note is that the color 'black' on Bluray is like 'Bass' on an MP3, in that they both require high bit rates. A low bitrate on Bluray will produce a grainy black picture, and on an MP3 a low bitrate will make the bass sound tinny. A great example of this is the movie 'Crash' which looks way better on DVD than that of Bluray.

From my experience, the best Bluray movies to show off your system are the BBC's 'Natural Earth', and 'Doctor who' like 'Planet of the dead.' Dr who is 1080i, but is encoded at the highest bitrate that I have seen on any Bluray movie so far, and looks outstanding.

Good Luck

It goes to a black screen with a yellow sign with a arrow on it pointing down, it also has a green, yellow, and red bar at the bottom.it stops at the red.


Had this same issue. Your probably trying to play either Crank2 or StarWars. Talked to Panasonic Tech Support and they said not enough memory to play disc and gave me these instructions:

"This movie title requires that an SD card of 128MB or larger to be inserted into the BluRay player prior to inserting the BD disc each time you watch this movie.

The SD card must be formatted in the BlRay player before use. (Do not format the SD card on your PC)

Formatting an SD card in the player:
-Insert an SD card (1GB or higher) into the SD slot of your BluRay
-Press [FUNCTIONS], select "other Functions" and press [OK]
-Select "Card Management" and press [OK], then follow the on-screen commands

Once formatting is complete, leave the SD card in the SD card slot. Insert the movie disc into the BluRay player and it should play normally."

Personal note, the bar graph that has always stopped at the red will hesitate for quite a while and then the rest of the bar will fill up and BD will begin to play.
