SOURCE: Blu-Ray player not reading Blu-Ray movie

Go to sharps website and download updated firmware version for your model, then transfer the file to the blu ray using a usb mass storage device. I had to do that to mine it would not play new blu rays and i just bought the darn thing should've come updated. Good luck!

Won't play new blue ray disk


Will your machine play standard movie DVD discs? if it does then the laser pickup assembly is the problem. The blue ray discs require a higher precision tracking to offer better resolution.

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!

We have a sony bdp 300 DVD. We updated the firmware several months ago and all the movies worked fine. However, now it will play just fine during the previews but when we play the movie, there is no audio....


Hi

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.
