Could be the motherboard, or a fuse. Without having it in hand it is hard to tell what it is. Check to see if there is an inside fuse in it.

We would be happy to help you with that. Here is a list of codes that should address your DISH Network remote to your Sony Blu-ray player: 629, 671, 868, 617, 501, and 768.

Press and hold the DVD/VCR button located on the top of the remote until all the mode buttons at the top of the remote light up, then release. Use the number buttons to enter one of the codes for your Sony Blu-ray player, then press the pound (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.

Sony BDP S350 bluray - unlocking to region free Yes, it is possible, but you'll need a programmable remote - most use the "one for 3/4/6/all". You can hack it by using the same code as for the bdp-s350. Follow the instructions exactly and it should work - mine does.



Programming the 7040 OneforAll remote to enable region free playback of DVD's on the Sony BDP-S350 Quote: 1. Press DVD 2. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice. 3. Press 0533 4. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice. 5. Press 994 6. Press Magic Key (don't hold) 7. Press 1891 (this sets key 1 - the DVD button flashes twice) 8. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice. 9. Press 994 10. Press Magic Key (don't hold) 11. Press 2552 (this sets key 2 - the DVD button flashes twice) 12. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice. 13. Press 994 14. Press Magic Key (don't hold) 15. Press 0953 (this sets key 3 - the DVD button flashes twice) 16. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice. 17. Press 994 18. Press Magic Key (don't hold) 19. Press 2214 (this sets key 4 - the DVD button flashes twice) 20. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice. . 21. Press 994 22. Press Magic Key (don't hold) 23. Press 0795 (this sets key 5 - the DVD button flashes twice) Done - the remote is now programmed and ready to use Quote: 1. Now to make your player region free use the Sony remote that came with the player to bring it out of standby and wait while HOME is displayed 2. Make sure there isn't a disc in the machine. 3. Now on the OneforAll remote press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (The blue 24p light on the player will start flashing) 4. Put the player back into standby with the Sony remote 5. That's it, the next time you turn on the player it will be region free for DVD playback If the blue 24p light doesn't flash then it hasn't worked, try a new set of batteries and start a fresh Good luck

That is because it is a DVD controller, not a TV controller.

You should get Asian firmware.

They are (despite printed DVD Region 3, BD Region A) all DVD region free. Tested on mine (bought in Thailand).

Panasonic BD30 was also DVD Region free. The firmware for that one is available from Panasonic website. Not sure if there's another way than automatic update from inside BD player to upgrade Sony.

When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Google for the programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.

BD media does have region codes. But, unlike current DVD players, the region codes for BD media use letters instead of numbers to indicate a particular zone or region where the discs can be played.

The BD region codes are as follows:

  • Region A: North America, South America, U.S. Territories, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia
  • Region B: Europe, Africa, Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.
  • Region C: Asia (except for Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia)

Check the filter capacitor to the supply to video output card. You can locate this capacitor at the CRT base card to your Sony Trinitron. Replace this electrolytic capacitor.
