Question about Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc Player
I'm trying to llay on the Sony Blu Ray BDP-300... Avatar and like the title says, I'm getting an 'incompatible region code'.
While I can work my way around a system, 'some what', I'm at a loss how to proceed 'fixing' the problem.
I read online that I need to download the latest firmware from Sony which I'm now doing.
Question: what am I supposed to do then?
The machine was purchased in Sept 2007 from Crutchfield and I've only been playing regular DVD's in it.
Can anyone suggest how to proceed to get the player to play the most recent DVD's in Blu Ray?

I had the exact same problem as you did... I bought the Sharp Aquos 42D85X which came with Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-ray Disc player. could not get brand new blu-ray movies to play and i found it froze everytime after 10 secs. I phoned sharp who basically were no help watsoever! I then went and returned my blu-ray movies back to the store thinking it was a problem with the discs.. The people there were extremely nice and since they had a display model of the BD-HP21X instore they offered to test the movie on it to veroify whether it was the blu-ray player was the problem or not. Turns out its a fault with all of the BD-HP21X models. So we then ended up returning it back to the store we bought it and exchanged it with the older model (BD-HP20X). I now have no problems playing blu-ray movies. Although another suggestion is to perhaps download the lastest firmware update & see if that resolves your issues.
