First of all ... thanks to all of you for this thread. It's a trove of great info and advice.
I've searched the thread but haven't found a consensus on this problem I'm having with my BD-P1400. I open the tray, insert a disc, close the tray, and then the machine hangs on "Load". When this happens, the "Open/Close" button no longer works. The only way to get the disc out is to power down, then use the "Open/Close" button to get the tray to open.
I've tried reloading the disc. I've tried leaving the disc in the machine with the power off, then turning the power on with the disc already in the machine. No luck. And it's happening on all the discs I put in now, not just a particular one.
Is there any advice on a fix for this issue? I'm currently using the 2.0 firmware.
