Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc Player - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


As with many Sony models, there is no way to hack the region coding on your model, sorry. This applies to both the DVD and Blu-Ray region coding.

But if you have a Blu-Ray drive fitted to your pc, you can use a program like DVD Fab to make a back-up copy of your Blu-Ray disc which strips out all of the region coding and copy protection. The copied disc can then be used on any machine.

Note that this may be illegal in your country; it's up to you to ensure local legal compliance. It's also illegal in the UK where I live, but in practice there's no problem as long as I don't use the software to distribute unlicensed copies and provided that I destroy/delete copies when I dispose of the original disc.

I suggest that you install the latest firmware update to resolve the issue. Please click the following link to download the latest firmware update.
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?upd_id=6170&mdl=BDPS300
It is recommended to use CD -R disc to create the firmware update disc.

I hope you're clear with downloading the update from support page.

Once you download and save the file in the folder in the computer, you can double click the file to extract.

You will be prompted to save the UPDATE_BDPS300_VER0550.ISO file in a folder.

Most of the customers will be making mistake here after...

We need to use a burning software which is capable to burning discs from ISO images. ISO image is nothing but a RAW format of burned image.

I will give you the instructions to burn using Nero.. Steps will be almost same in all ISO capable software.

Open installed nero software from computer. You may locate it under Start Menu programs. Go to File Menu (Some times you will get a wizard where you can select the Image Burning option or burn ISO option)

Navigate the extracted .ISO file we saved in the computer.

follow the onscreen instructions.

Insert the disc when ever Nero asked to insert

Hope this helps. If you need any assistance. Please get back to me. I will be more than happy to assist you. Thanks for understanding.

I had the same problem with mine, if you haven't solved it by now, you need to do press these buttons in this exact sequence:
1) select radio
2) press "Band" to change from AM or FM to FM2
3) press preset #5
4) press volume down twice
5) press volume up twice
The screen should then display something along the lines of "the CD eject lockout has been disabled" and your eject button should then with properly

In most cases, the issue might be with the Java content 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:

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, the 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.

Try another disk, see if it plays. Try the one that won't work in another blu-ray player if possible. I tried to watch a disk I got at a redbox rental, it fouled 2 dvd players, but took it to a friend's house and it played just fine. When I went to return it, it wouldn't go back into the redbox machine. I had to try at another redbox machine and it took it. So could just be a problem with that disk.

It's not possible to change the region code in the Blu-ray Player.

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)

Hey jude06,

In order to play Blu-Ray discs, you must unfortunately own a Blu-Ray player. Neither HD-DVD players nor Progressive Scan/Upconvert DVD players are capable of playing the discs, and standard DVD players are not able to recognize information on the discs due to how they are constructed.

Please keep in mind that there are always a number of options available to you, should you consider purchasing a Blu-Ray player. While the average asking price with many retailers for stand-alone Blu-Ray players is between $300.00 and $500.00, you can typically obtain an internal Blu-Ray drive for your computer for considerably less. Additionally, the Playstation 3 may also be a viable alternative - the current 40GB model not only plays Blu-Ray discs, but also has the added perk of being a video game console for around the same price as the average stand-alone Blu-Ray player.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

The most common problem with blu-ray discs in blu-ray players like the BDP-S300 seems to be related to firmware issues. You can download the latest firmware from the Sony website here. Once burned to a disc on your computer you load the disc into the blu-ray player to update it.

I hope that helps.
