Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Sony tv will play copies of movies from tv, but won't play store bought new ones. I mean current popular ones. It played Avatar last week but won't now. We tried several new movies and none will play. Put older store bought movies like from the 80's and they play. I'm guessing it's the tv because the dvd recorder plays some.

There is some confusion in the explanation here.

The TV does not play movies it displays them It is the DVD that Plays them. But of course you knew that. Some of the newer movies like avatarcan be on Blu ray if your DVD is supposed to play Blu ray but doesn't don't be surprised as they have changed the format recently. Your DVD will require an udate of firmnware. Go to the website of the DVD brand and contact support Download the update and burn it to a disc and run it.

With the TV end Make sure the resolution can be accepted from the DVD you are trying to Play. If it isn't HD or capable of 1024x768 at 16.4 then it may not be able to display the image. Is there any sound?

If sound but no Pic then start playing with the picture format. go to 8.2 or 4,0 to see if it makes any difference

Holy C! I had the same problem and even bought a new system cause I thought it was broken! Turns out that the games are defective and there is no way to fix them. Now you can pick up copies of this game at your local Dollar Store! (NO JOKE!)

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!

LG 399d - new - trying to play Avatar movie via the USB port - will not recognise this movie format. In DVDSCR AC3 XVID. AVI. Other movies same format play well not this one. Why? What to fix it? Dave


It is probably a corrupted copy,or perhaps the codec is slightly different from the one, used by player, there could be many reasons indeed. It could be a bad "Header" file. Try re doing the copy again, and see.

Avatar will not play on my BDP-S300 Sony blu ray. Any recommendations on how to fix this?


I recommend you go to the Sony website and find if there are any updates for your blu ray player. If there are they will have you download the update, unzip the download to a new file, copy the file to your DVD burner, and install the DVD Update into your player, press "play" OK a couple of things and shazam! Updated! That is unless your lens just needed cleaned, Good Luck.
