Question about Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc Player
My Sony BDP-S300 Blu-ray player can not read disk
I just sent my BDP-S300 in with same problem...the tech told me he couldn't duplicate the problem and I think I know why...the fix is to UNPLUG the power cable and leave it unplugged for a minimum of 2-3 minutes...this process clears the internal memory; it seems that if you don't clear the memory, it won't read any disc because the unit thinks the same 'problem' disc is in the drive... (don't simply hold down the power button for 5 seconds - that will 'factory reset' the unit to default settings and you will have to reset your video / audio settings)...you have to physically unplug the unit from the power source...If I had waited a little longer before repowering the unit, I wouldn't have had to send the unit in (obviously the unit was without power during shipping and when it was powered up, internal memory was reset and thus did not indicate any problems). One more trick I learned is this - If a disc won't eject, turn the unit off, and instead of using the Power button to turn unit on, use the Open / Close button...the tech said the unit will then eject the disc before trying to read it...Hope this info helps!

SOURCE: player can not play disk
There are firmware upgrades at the Sony site, I just upgraded to v5.20. You download an .exe file, run it under Windows, burn the resulting .iso file to a CD, insert the CD into the BDP-S300 and wait about 20 minutes. More detailed directions on the site, too.

You will need the following:
1) Internet connection
2) Wired router
3) long enough ethernet cable to reach from your blue ray player to the router.
Eject any disks and turn off the blu-ray player by unplugging it.
Attach the ethernet cable to the router and the other end to the ethernet port on the back of the blu-ray player.
Turn on the blu-ray player and wait for it to load all the way.
Using the remote, arrow over to the left to "Setup", the up to "Network Update".
After the unit updates and restarts, repeat until it tells you "Already Updated".
That should help you play the newer movies, and even some of the older ones.

Cause walmart has parental discs. Some sort of censorship version. All there music cds delete or beep/blip the profanity out, so im pretty sure they get their movies with a certain level of parental control embedded. Make sure your parental control level on the sone BD player if set to play all. Basically no parental regional restrictions. Hope that help. If that doesnt. I suggest just not supporting Wal-Mart. They are NWO associated. And everything you buy there no matter hw insignificant have RFiDs embedded into them. Just a little FYI for ya. Google it. Its creepy stuff.
