There is a "fast load" feature on this player. From the "Home" screen, navigate to: Setup>System Setting>Stand By Mode, the select "Quick Start. You could also try a different (faster) USB drive; that can also make a difference when the movie is caching.

    I had this same problem with the s350 blue ray player. Added a 8gb usb pin drive to the back extended memory slot and it works great! Lol it just needs more memory to play most blue ray discs...

You can always check for upgrades in sonystyle.com .

blue rays devices tipically start slow, as they begin trying to connect online to get new upgrades, not just for the device, but also for the movies.

so far, you have one upgrade in sonystyle.com :

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=BDPS350&SelectOS=7

issued in November 2009. Which could be after the manufacture date of your device, so, you have to apply it.

My Samsung smart tv & my dvd/bluray player recorder I bought at same time. Haven't had blurays til now & wont play at all. Rental ones did now I've bought my own & they don't play!Not tech minded.HELP


Each DVD player is assigned a code for the region in which it's sold. For example USA/Canada are Region 1 players. DVD players will refuse to play discs not coded for its specific region. In effect, this means that a DVD purchased in one country is normally unreadable on a DVD player bought in another region.

If your rental DVDs work in the player then there is nothing wrong with your DVD player. If you have purchased DVDs that do not work the problem is with the DVDs you have, not with the DVD player.

Hi just got a second hand bush blu ray player, plays normal DVDs but won't play blu rays! Can you help? Thanks Jez


There should be nothing special about playing the different DVDs. Putting in a normal DVD compared to a BluRay should not require you to do anything different.

Look at the front of the DVD player and look for the BluRay logo. If you do not see it on the front of the DVD player then you do not have a BluRay player.

My BDP S550 was working playing most blurays. The other day I put the original release avatar bluray in and it came up as disc unknown, which had worked before. Now no blurays work in my bluray player...


If nothing is playing, you either have a dirty lens or it's out of alignment and will need service. Try a DVD lens cleaner that uses fluid, they usually cost 20 or so and can be purchased just about anywhere these days. If it still won't play, it's a service issue and needs repair/replacement, depending on cost. Get an estimate first. Hope the cleaner works!!!

I am trying to watch a blu ray dvd bit it wont allow me to play it the player just ejects the disc. do I need a software update


Not sure what you are playing it on. A BLURAY disc needs a BluRay compatible disc player, PS3 has one built in. Most PC DVD drives dont play BluRay as standard. Normal HOME DVD players of course cant play them either.

I have the latest software version for the BDPBX2 11.4.008 when I try to play the Avatar Bluray DVD I get the following message: if you experience problems playing back this DVD go to...


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!

Element EDBCO11 + Avatar = problem


Avatar bluray disc uses some super-new technique for copy-protection, which many players don't support yet. If you already upgraded to the latest firmware, you can only contact your dealer and ask them - or wait for even newer firmware.

Need new update to play avatar.


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.

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.

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.
