Curious, would any owners here of the BDP-62FD see any reason to ever purchase the newly released BDP-80FD?

Is it a step forward, backward or is it about the same level of features and quality between these 2 blu-ray players?


Thanks guys

Unhappy

I can't for the life of me remember the 4 digit passcode I chose during the initial setup. Does anyone know a way to force a reset???

Try this:

1. Go to the home menu.

2. Highlight "Initial Settings."

3. Press "ENTER."

4. Highlight "Options," but do not press "ENTER."

5. Enter 8520.

6. Highlight the password reset.

7. Press "ENTER."

8. Exit the menu.

Except for the fact you need to highlight "Options," this is similar to many Blu-ray players with MediaTek CPUs. For your sake and the sake of anyone else in this situation, I really do hope I'm right about this.

Good luc,

Chris

Thanks for the help. It worked - sort of. It took me a few attempts to realize that it reset the passcode to 0000

Front Display Died

Pioneer wants $80 just to look at it, plus the cost of repair. Does anybody here know of an inexpensive fix for the front display?

I am looking for suggestions on new Blu-ray player. I want the best possible picture quality from Blu-rays and upscaled DVDs (1080p). I don't care about 4K, streaming, Apps, or internal DACs (I will bitstream to my receiver). Do I have any options under $200?

I compared the performance of my 62FD against a Sony s790 using a Toy Story 2 Blu-ray. The image from the Pioneer had greater depth and realism, seeming almost 3-dimensional. The Sony's picture was also very good, but just not as realistic as the Pioneer's. But, on the Aladdin DVD, the Sony seemed to produce a richer, more detailed picture! Now I'm stumped.

I used to have a 62fd and compared it directly with the s790. I also replicated the results you experienced in which the 62fd had poor DVD upscaling abilities compared to the s790.

I didn't really notice any substantial difference in Blu-ray PQ. Have you tried adjusting the s790 picture options to get it to match what you saw on the 62fd? Sounds like adjusting the options related to contrast/black levels would help.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try changing some settings on the Sony.

Meanwhile, I changed the settings on the Pioneer (changed Display Type from 'Professional' to 'PDP') and it brought the DVD image quality closer to that of the Sony.

No Netflix streaming and PQLS? Seems like a step backwards to me.

And no DVD-Audio, so it's not a Universal Player

I have a BDP-62FD, I'm having a weird problem. Every old blu-ray movie I have plays fine, any new blu-ray I purchased over the past month keeps skipping in the player yet all of the old movies play fine. I purchased inside out, ant man and Jurassic World they all seem to skip like crazy during the movie previews but once the movie starts (if I can get past the freezing and skipping) the movie itself seems to play fine. has anyone heard of this? any help would be appreciated.
