Is the player new? If it's a new DVD player and still under warranty, I would return it, exchange it or possibly, consider changing brands: perhaps to a Phillips brand DVD player. After all, the Phillips corporation guarantees its DVD players will play everything, just read the box in which the player's packaged - it's the best bang for your buck. With DVD players being so inexpensive these days, the best option is to buy new. Keep computing Chomskyites.

This certainly looks like a potential firmware issue especially if the Audio is there on the previews. There are reports also of recent firmware updates causing problems on some other Sony BDP units.
You might want to try a Blueray cleaning disk which you can purchase from any good Audio store first to ensure there is not a problem with dirt on the lens that may be causing this. Simply insert and play like a normal disk and it provides a cleansing action to the lens.
Otherwise my advice is to contact Sony directly to discuss the matter and find out if there have been any recent firmware issues.
The most recent update for your unit is firmware version 4.9 and this was released on 12th June 2009
The support phone number for Sony Blueray Players is 239-768-7547
Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Many Thanks.

If you are referring to "new" meaning recent releases, there was a change in the DRM and authoring scheme that was created by the releasing publishers. Several Blu-Ray players are having issues with this and solutions are being rolled out as quickly as possible.
The Insignia Blu-Ray players have solutions available as firmware updates on:
Search by your model number and download the latest firmware to a USB stick, insert into the player, follow the instructions, and you should be good to go. you should also receive updated applications like Netflix and Pandora.
Hope this helps.
