The firmware update needs to be done again.

Follow the steps below to troubleshoot if the BD player cannot read or play a disc:
IMPORTANT: Prior to following the steps below, go to the Drivers & Software section of the Pioneer eSupport Web site to check for available firmware updates. If a firmware update is available, it will be posted there with a list of improvements over the original or any previous firmware version. Some disc playback issues may be resolved by ensuring the BD player has the most current firmware installed.

  1. Ensure the Easy Setup procedure has been completed on the BD player. NOTE: Can't play DISC may display on the LCD screen if the Easy Setup procedure was not completed first.
  2. Ensure the inserted disc is compatible with the BD player. NOTE: Consult the instruction manual of the BD player for a list of compatible discs.Manuals are available online through the Manuals/Specs/Warranty link on this page.
  3. Select BD players may require that a USB memory device has been properly inserted into the EXT slot of the player prior to playing the movie. If the BD player being used does not have an EXT input, skip this step. NOTE: The USB memory device may need to be re-formatted to FAT32 format prior to inserting it into the player.
  4. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc.
  5. Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback.
  6. Wipe the top of the disc tray using a soft dry cloth before placing the disc on the tray. Attempt to play the disc again.
  7. Attempt to play another disc. Remove the disc from the BD player.
  8. Turn off the BD player.
  9. Unplug the power cord of the BD player from the electrical outlet.
  10. Let the player remain without power for 1 minute.
  11. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
  12. Turn on the BD player.
  13. Insert the disc into the BD player.
  14. Attempt to play the disc.
The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required

Sony bluray bdp-n460 blinking wait


I just had this problem on a BDP-N460. I had just moved to a new house and now using HDMI instead of componet, I also tried to do a firmware upgrade when I didn't have internet connection to by Bluray player.

Called Sony and they said memeory was correcupted and it required repair.

As a last resort I downloaded the latest firmware from sony onto my computer and burned it to CD-R (even though I was already at the latest version). I popped the disk in and almost immediatly it said I was already updated. After that all was working without issue.

Not sure what happened or what caused it but its working now.

I have a Pioneer BDP-LX52 that has stopped playing for some reason. Do you know how to reset it? Thanks


hi friend, firstly, you check your DVD player power code. it's connected or not. then, check DVD power button. there is a power indicator. it is on or not. if it is on then check your DVD remote battery. if it is too old. then, replace it.
after that, it not work then goto your nearest service center. bcoz, it is your DVD internal prblem.

My Sony BDP-S370/BX37 does not play all the Bluray discs I have. For instance it will not play Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland but will play Disney's Sleeping Beauty and Coraline. What do I need to do?


In most cases, the issue might be with the Java contents on the new Blu-ray discs is making this issues. The Blu-ray technology is developing everyday and adding more and more features to the existing technology. Hence it is required to make the Blu-ray Player up-to-date by installing the latest firmware update available from the manufacturer (who ever it is). Going ahead with the first step, please install the latest firmware update available for the Blu-ray Player.


Please click the following link to get the latest firmware update available for your Blu-ray Player:


http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?upd_id=6237&mdl=BDPS370


You can review the "Important Notes" and "Firmware Update Instructions" on the page to get the instructions to install the firmware update.


If the issue persists after installing the firmware update, it would have been with the disc. Check the disc with another player; try different discs with same player.


If the Blu-ray Player is not at all playing any Blu-ray disc, then it may require service.

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.

Have purchased Terminator Salvation and 2012 on bluray, both Sony discs, they load and go to menu screen, however the icons to allow you to play or scene select etc do not appear, menu just plays over and...


Most likely you need to 'flash' (update) your BDP-S300's firmware. I had the same issue while trying to play AVTR in my BDP-S300. I downloaded Sony's latest firmware update, burned it to disc and popped the disc into the player... It takes 5-10 minutes for the 'flashing' to take place. AVTR now works in my player... Had to do this with one other Blu-ray movie about 18 months ago also.

Download the latest firmware version for the BDP-S300 here...

Follow the instructions to the letter!

Pioneer DBP-51FD Blu-Ray


I bought mine four days ago and it would not pay the new James Bond Blue-Ray. The screen said your player needs an update. I downloaded the firmware, and it still did not work. I took the disc down to Best Buy and it played fine on an identical DBP 51-FD. Their tech came out with a replacement player and it played fine. Now, however, it will not play the DVD Happily Ever After 2, eve after the firmware update. Strangely enough, the other player played that DVD fine.

In other words, take it back and get another one.
