Anyone having trouble with the LEGO Movie? My BD-60 won't read the movie with SD card in or out. Getting a "Cannot read. Please check the disc." error after the drive tries to start it a few times. It's the only disc of mine that won't read.

Cool

Hello all,

I am trying to assist someone in updating to a newer firmware. The player has problems with discs (' protections?). It is a DMP-BD60 with 1.7. I have twice burned the correct country's firmware file, once with ImgBurn as an ISO9660. Each time, the player displays L FVU and immediately ejects the disc. The update does not complete.

Does anyone have 2.64 on disc that can be converted to an ISO? Can someone offer recommendations? I do not have Roxio or Windows XP.

Thanks in advance.

Check with Panasonic to see if they will ship you a CD with the latest FW @ N/C. They used to offer this service. I had a DMP BD-60 b4 I upgraded to Oppo. After 4 years of playing every BD, the Panny started not playing certain discs.

The key here is CD. Make sure you aren't burning to DVD.

This is again a project of interest. I am looking at accomplishing this with a different brand of media. The Panasonic site, http://panasonic.jp/support/global/c...ica/index.html, says the disc must not be 'packet-written.' I have verified ImgBurn does not use packet writing. It also must be ISO9660. The question there is, Mode1 or Mode2/1, and then, Level 1, 2, or X with a Standard, DOS or ASCII character set. Anyone have suggestions?

Other questions.
I am considering to purchase an used Panasonic DMP BD80 or BD80EG-K mainly to play Blu-Ray discs for its music (5.1 audio). For example Quadrophenia by the Who.
The Panasonic will be connected to a vintage quadraphonic amplifier that has 4 discrete inputs and four speakers. There is no sub woofer, there is no central speaker, just 2 front speakers and 2 rear speakers.
The manual that I found online says that you can switch off the center speaker, the Panasonic will compensate this by giving more low frequency sound to the 2 front speakers.
What about the center speaker?
Can this one be switched off too and will the Panasonic divide the sound of the center speaker over the 2 front speakers?

What is the difference between the Panasonic DMP BD80 and the BD80EG-K ?

If this Panasonic is not the right one for the application, which Blu-Ray player would you recommend to use in combination with a 4.0 amplifier?
Thank you in advance for your reply.

Can't connect to the network anymore.
I have had this for several years and it has served me well, but today I can't connect through the network anymore. In the network section my Connection Test fails. I can't update firmware, can't access viera cast... I am not sure what is wrong. I swapped ethernet cables with our Xbox and get internet connection there so it is not that the router or cable are bad.

The only thing that has changed fairly recently is I got set up through openDNS for internet content filtering. I input their DNS settings into my router. I thought maybe I had to turn Auto DNS config off in the BD80 and put those DNS settings in, but that didn't work either.

Any thoughts on what might be the problem?

Thanks.

Try giving it a Fixed IP address (similar to how you would setup a printer).


I had the same problems (with it no being able to obtain a Dynamic IP address from router). Since I switched BD-60 and plasma TV to Fixed IPs ... no more problems.

Epson 8350 1080p Projector (96") / Panasonic TH-46pz850u 46" 1080p Plasma TV

I have used Open DNS for a long time without problems. Also can try a router reboot (unplug, wait, plug in) in case it needs to assign another local IP address. Might also be able to firmware update via download and create DVD (not sure if still can, never tried) /Dan

Thanks. I switched to a fixed IP and now it works again. Not sure what triggered it, but I am glad to be back and running again.

Hi guys,

I have a Panasonic DMP BD-60 blu ray player.

My question is right now I have the audio hooked from the blu ray player’s stereo analog outputs in the back. When Im watching a blu ray movie and I select an HD audio codec like DTS HD MA or Dolby True HD, will I still be getting the same High Res sound quality (although in 2 channel mode) via the stereo analog outputs from the blu ray player? I know it’ll all just be in 2 channels instead, but will the resolution of the audio still be High Res and of the same quality of the HD codec or might the player downgrade the resolution of the audio that comes out from the analog outputs?

Hope that made sense. lol.. Thx for any input.

Hi! The optical drive on my bd80 part "vxy2046" doesn't read blu rays anymore, I would like to know if part "vxy2070" is compatible with this player, thank you!

I think you'll be a lot happier with a new player rather than fixing this one. I found lg players are much more resilient at playing scratched discs (netflix and library) than the panasonics.

And new players load a lot quicker.

I agree with Greg, do not bother fixing this old BD player! Panasonic has not released updates for years & will not update it anymore. I upgraded to Oppo when my DMP BD80 began not playing certain BDs, even ones it had played b4. But there are less expensive alternatives to Oppo for you & the newer players are better.

I see your point but the problem is that I need a player with analog audio outputs.

In that case I would check your local Craigslist for a deal or pony up about $250USD for a new one on Amazon:

It sounds like you are missing out on an opportunity to upgrade to a new system!

Yes, my LG which is 2 years old has no analog.

I had one panasonic dvd player die, but I went back to them mostly because I got good deals.

Do you need discreet analog or just lr?

I originally bought the BD80 vs BD60 in 2009 due to lack of HDMI in my AVR.
Several months later I upgraded to Pioneer Sc05 which was WAY better sounding than my old Pioneer. My old Pioneer VSX-D912 was protectively shutting down during the Incredible Hulk @ ~ 105dB, LOL. When my DMP BD80 started having problems I went with Oppo BDP-103. It is superb, read reviews. The only downside is cost. Oppo had analog audio out as does that Samsung BD-F7500 for ~ 50% of the cost. I don't know how good the Samsung is, you'll need to read reviews. Also rethink the upgrade of your AVR, considering costs, quality, how many years you'll use it, etc.

@gregoryperkins , I need discrete analog.
Thanks for your advice, I've never trusted Samsung, I would prefer to save the other $250 and get the Oppo which I've read are the best blu ray players.

Oppo makes quality equipment for sure. Whether an Oppo makes sense for you probably has more to do with whether you care about the features included in the Oppo than anything else. I have multiple Panasonic and Sony players and have never been disappointed. I have held onto my existing players in order to preserve my connection flexibility & stay with equipment that has no clue what cinavia is. All these players also play every new title that comes out without a hitch . . no constant firmware updates needed.
I originally also pursued using multi channel analog audio outputs, but decided to switch to a hdmi capable receiver when it became apparent that there was no acceptable way to properly balance the LFE channel with the other channels in my system using the analog channel connections due to the 10db weak signal output from all blu-ray players. Now it is straight HDMI, and everything works great in my main system. The old receiver is still excellent (a Yamaha RX-V1 monster) & it gets used in a secondary system without handling hdmi.

A long-time audio/video addict!

Panasonic BD60 won't "remember" HDMI settings

I've got a problem that I can't seem to figure out. I have a TiVo and Panasonic BD60 in my living room, both feed into a 4x2 HDMI router. One output goes to an older Pioneer plasma (which supports 1080i/720p only) in the living room. The other output goes to a newer LCD in the basement that supports 1080p.

The TiVo is set to 720p and works fine. However, the BD player keeps defaulting itself to AUTO when its turned off, which becomes 1080p. If I manually select 720p, (do this by using a web camera looking at the basement TV, since the plasma won't display 1080p!) it works fine until its powered off, at which time it goes back to AUTO/1080p.

Any idea? Maybe a button battery needs to be replaced and that's why its not saving settings after power off? It USED to work! I have tried upgrading firmware but have not looked for a CMOS battery inside.
