You can try completing the update. This is how it is done:

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.

Just bought a new dvd - Sony player tells me disk is invalid


In most cases, the issue might be with the Java content on the new Blu-ray discs is making this issues. The Blu-ray technology is developing everyday and adding more and more features to the existing technology. Hence it is required to make the Blu-ray Player up-to-date by installing the latest firmware update available from the manufacturer (who ever it is). Going ahead with the first step, please install the latest firmware update available for the Blu-ray Player.

Please click hear to download the latest firmware update available for your Blu-ray Player:

You can review the "Important Notes" and "Firmware Update Instructions" on the page to get the instructions to install the firmware update.
If the issue persists after installing the firmware update, the would have been with the disc. Check the disc with another player, try different discs with same player.
If the Blu-ray Player is not at all playing any Blu-ray disc, then it may require service. Please let me know if you require any further assistance with installation or need any clarification. It is my pleasure assisting

Player doesn't read many new (to me) blu ray disks. Most are older releases. I have the latest firmware update (hard wired to web), and all of my existing and some new blu rays all play. Player tells me it...


You need software upgade for the dvd player. I know a service shop can download and install it. It may be avaiable to customer from customer relations.

Toy Story 3 will not play on my Blue Ray player all other blue ray disk's work fine.


Have you updated your Blu-Ray player recently? All BD players need to be updated from time to time because of the growing technology of Blu-Ray. Its always been a con of BD players. Best thing to do is have your player connect to the internet.
I hope this is the back of your player. Connect your Cat5 (Ethernet cable) to your BD player and than to your router or modem. The port should look like this on the back of your player.

Once you have this connected start your player and it will have a option in the menu to update. Once the update is complete Toy Story 3 and all new BD discs should work. If not, its possible that the disc is bad. More often you just need to update the player.

Cannot play 2012 movie on player , it loads and then nothing. The log shows 4 0000000. I push play and nothing


I also have the same problem. I just bought 2012 blu ray dvd, and tried to play on my sony blu ray player. The player kept on loading but nothing showed up. The log appears the same message 4 000000.

I thought that the disc is defective and tried to return it to the retailer. The retailer told me that Sony blu ray player needs to have the program updated. I never knew that a blu ray player needs to update its program. The retailer's sales took my disc and played on a PS3, and it worked.

I came home and went to Sony website to download a firmware update. Followed the instruction and did the update. After you update the player, it will be able to play 2012.
