Hope everyone who's celebrating is having a nice holiday!
Anyway, been trying to find an answer for this problem from several sources with no luck, so thought I'd ask here since there are so many knowledgeable members. My problem is with my Sony BDP-N460 Bluray player - about 4 years old, I think, according to the receipt (which doesn't seem all that old.) Up until now, I've had no problems playing BD disks (is that redundant?) and think this player has a great picture and a great selection of Internet apps, but when I tried playing my latest BD, "The Maze Runner" from 20th Century-Fox, the BD wouldn't play past about 10 seconds of the 20th Century-Fox fanfare at the very beginning. It then goes into "Pause" mode with a black screen and the "Pause" icon and "BD Pause" showing in lower left corner. Blue light shows through tray door while this is in pause then, after about a minute of the black screen, player shuts itself down!
I installed the latest firmware and followed all directions from Sony that they suggested to correct the problem: deleting BD Data; resetting all settings; unplugging unit from power for a minute or two; firmware update (even though the player showed the latest version was already installed), but none of those actions corrected the situation.
Any advice on how to solve this problem would be appreciated! The only advice I got for this problem in the Sony forum was to buy a $49 Samsung!
lol But, I have a Samsung "Smart Media Set Top Box" and it has very few apps, compared to my Sony BD player (and I also bought a Samsung LED HDTV but took it back after only 2 days, it was so bad compared to my Sony that it hurt my eyes watching it, even after spending 2 days trying to adjust color, brightness, etc. to be more lifelike!)
Thanks for reading this and for your help!
Happy New Year!
P.S. I thought the problem might be the disk, so took it back and exchanged it for a new, sealed one, but the new disk still has the same problems when I try to play it. Also, the included DVD plays fine; it's just the BD that won't play.
