20 Most Recent Sony BDP-S560 Blu-Ray Player Questions & Answers

Graeme - Greetings: this hack may or may not be any help to you as it will allow you to play DVD discs region free but not Blu-Ray discs.

Using the remote bring the player out of standby, make sure there isn't a disc in it. It should read "HOME" on the front panel.

Press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on the remote. The blue 24p light will start flashing on the front panel.

Put the player back into standby with the remote.

Turn on the player and it should be region free for standard DVD playback.

Apologies if this is not the fix your looking for. I'm now aware of any hacks to allow your player to play Blu-Ray discs region free.

Some (not all) DVD players have a manual open mechanism on them. It's a tiny hole under or near the DVD drawer where you can insert a stiff wire (straightened paper clip) straight in and push gently to force it open. Most PC CDROM drives have these; not sure about Blue Ray players.

Yes you can but you will need a circuit fitted internally to do this.
Blu ray region free is different from DVD RF.

when you press open does the machine display open...if it does then the door is probably jammed and you may need to have the unit serviced

Please make sure that the disc is free of dust and scratches..
If the issue persists with all discs, service is required..
It would be good if you go for local service to save money..
thanks for understanding.

im not sure if there are updates... because i dont think sony players have the ability to have internet connection...

but, i found myself in near enough the same problem...

i brought my panasonic Blu Ray player from the UK, (i live in the UK) (not knowing at the time what multi region was) and brought a few of my DVD's of ebay which were from canada and america...

so i did a search for any adaptable hardware i can plug into maybe a USB slot and i found a MULTI REGION REMOTE from ebay around

I have a sony vaio laptop and a BDPS560 which connected automatically. Is the green WLAN light on the blueray lit up?
On the laptop, if public is set for the location in Windows network settings, devices will not be shared automatically. Hope this helps S.Newsham

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.
