Question about Marantz BD7003 Blu-ray Player

1 Answer

Hi, I am trying to see a new Blu-ray movie on my Maratnz BD7003 player, but the disk will not be read. I am getting disk read errors and no loading of the disk. The store replaced the disk, but suggested an update of the firmware. The new disk has the same problem, I guess an update of the firmware is required. However, any reference to Marantz sites for firmware updates is constantly bouncing. See for instance: Any suggestions where I could find firmware for this player? BR Wim

    Hey Drew,

    Great! Thanks! I will start with this.

    While having done some work with old(er) BD's I get the impression there is an issue as well with the drive. It looks like I need to clean the drive as well.
    Any recommendation which tools work best here?

    Hi Drew,

    Thanks for sharing!
    I had searched for DVD DR or DVD Doctor at first, but that seems to be out already.
    However, last Saturday I was able to buy a cleaning DVD, with less brushes compared to your fancy product, and it did the trick!
    Thanks again for your support, I really appreciated it!

I have packed you the user manual for your player and the fireware upgrades needed. In the manual it explains the process of how to upgrade your firmware with the files I have supplied.

Please visit this link, download the file and continue with the user manual for the upgrade process!

Thank you and have a nice day...please rate if this helped you :)

    DVD DR. is rated for both bluray players and dvd players so it is a disk to buy and keep around. It costs nearly $30-$40 but it's worth the recovery of the bluray player.

    Hope it goes well for you!

    Here is the link to the cleaning disk. The ratings are not the best, however I have had many successes with this disk and highly recommend it.

Error message when my Blue Rays reads dvds

It's a software issue. you need to ring the manufacturer to get files and instructions on how to upgrade your machine so it can play the newer blu ray movies. Quite a common problem.

I was getting the same error and I could not get regular dvd or blu ray discs to play either. I dug out my old cd player lens cleaner and put it in and it started playing. I let it clean the lens for a couple minutes and now it is playing my movies again.

I am trying to play Date Night in my blu ray. I can play any other blue ray I got besides this one. All I get is the update your bluray screen then it goes blank! It doesn't try to read the bluray it just...

Remove the disk. Go into the player's setup menu. Disable BD-Live. You may also need to clear the player's memory (maybe called cache, but depends on your manufacturer and model).
Now insert the disk and it should load right away and play normally. This is happening because new disks are trying to use the internet to connect to a server to download new features for the disk (that's BD-Live). This would be cool, except that in some cases it causes this freezing problem where you can't even watch your movie.
Firmware updates don't seem to fix it--at least not yet. So far this seems to be a combination of a coding issue on the disks and perhaps firmware that doesn't know how to deal with the new code. Please post a reply if it works for you.

DVD Player Not loading Movies

optical sensor is burned out or the spindle is not spinning the disk to read it.

Blu-ray disc not playing movies

Try resetting the machine. Take the movie out, close the tray, press and hold both the stop and power buttons simultaneously until the machine shuts down completely... then turn it on. It will ask you for the first time settings again... beware that mine stated like that and the freezing movies until "No Disk" came up and now nothing will be read. I an taking it to Sears for an exchange (hopefully). I am disappointed with the performance so far. It's a SONY ****!
