Official Panasonic DMP-BD35/55 Owners Thread - Page 495

post #14821 of 14978
Well my BD35 is finally beginning to act up. Every now and then it can't seem to read the odd blu-ray disc, even though it played that disc in the past. I believe that's a sign that the blue laser is starting to go bad. On the other side of the coin, my first blu-ray player, the Panny BD30 is still working just fine. It's just a bit slower than the 35 and the BD85, which is used exclusively in my dedicated theater. I've removed the 35 and now use the BD30 for watching movies on my LCD flat panel in the living room.

These codes are easily added to a Pronto configuration, but since the Logitech software is so restrictive and does not allow direct hex code entry I'm not sure how you will be able to add these. Maybe if you email the codes to Logitech support they will add them to their database.

Hi Brian

trying to get the Power to work on 55K, no luck (using URC) does above definitely work?

I think you might have to send the code twice for the OFF command.

Thanks for reply.

Found it here:
http://files.remotecentral.com/library/3-1/panasonic/dvd_player/set_2/index.html

Used set 2.

This is the command:

0000 0070 0000 0032 0080 0041 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0ab6

had a strange issue with a BDP-35 and Denon 3310 receiver that I hooked up for a buddy over the weekend. i had the panny set to bitstream over HDMI. popped in a dvd and got no audio (DD 5.1 track). swapped the dvd out for a bluray. lossless audio tracks played fine, but when i switched to the lossy DD 5.1 signal, no sound. switched the panny to PCM output and all audio tracks played fine, lossy DD on both the DVD and the BD and lossless audio on the BD.

Any ideas why i would have to send the decoded PCM signal out of the Panny? not a big deal, just seems odd.

Thanks!
post #14826 of 14978
I decided to pop in to check and see if I was the last one still using one of these. I'm glad that I'm not alone. I fear that new discs won't play but no problems so far. biggrin.gif
post #14827 of 14978
Our BD55 is still playing every disc we try.
post #14828 of 14978
Actually... when I played the recent Total Recall disc, extended cut (don't recall if there was a theatrical cut to choose from), I had the picture get all goofy (double speed, dropped frames) and maybe some audio issues as well, this using internal decoding of Dolby TrueHD and sending it via multichannel PCM to my receiver. I went back and repeated it at least a couple more times.

Apparently several players have had audio issues with this disc when bitstreamed, but played okay via PCM, but when I checked online a week or so ago, mine was the only report of having issues when using PCM. (There's a Total Recall review thread here somewhere...) Don't recall any video complaints from others.

Anyway, popped it into the Oppo 93 and no issues whatsoever (from a few minutes before the lock up through to the end), again decoding it in the player, sending it to receiver as PCM. This happened around 40-45 minutes in.

Anybody else?

(Otherwise, haven't had any issues for quite a while, and this is still my main Region A go to blu-ray machine. All other discs, blu or dvd, usually end up on the Oppo.)

hello, people. i have been away for about 2 years. sold condo, bought an old house, that needs a ton of work. i finally put my gear back up(but not running yet). i have a BD35, it worked good (mostly) back 2 years ago. i am now wondering if i will have issues playing the newer BD's ?
post #14830 of 14978
I think you'll be OK overall. Mine still works pretty well.

Even though my BD-35 hasn't been my "flagship" BDP in a while, it remains the most heavily used player in the house.  Knock on wood... it hasn't given us the slightest bit of a problem.

Same for me.
post #14833 of 14978
Same here as well. Use my -35 at least once a week. It's been years since I last updated it; never had a disc problem.

post #14834 of 14978
thats great, thanx. i was hoping i didn't have to buy a new one.
post #14835 of 14978
I have the same issue. I have a CradlePoint MBR-900 router with DHCP enabled, a D-Link DGL-3410 game adapter hooked to a D-Link DGS 1005G 5 port ethernet switch. My Xbox360 and DishNetwork VIP622 DVR are running thru the switch without any issue. The BD35 ran when it was the only unit in the switch, so I got the latest firmware update. I tried reserving the MAC with a pre-selected IP address in the router, and filling in the info manually on the BD35, but neither method worked. My ISP is Excede (satellite) but I don't think latency is the issue. Does anyone have some suggestions?
post #14836 of 14978
I bought an OPPO 103 player a couple months ago and I won't look back. The speed in which it loads blu-rays is awesome! Plus loads of other features including networking, but the price is steep $500. But still a worthwhile upgrade for me. Check it out.

I should replace my working BD-35 for $500? confused.gif

I can live with slower load time on Panny for the little I use it now (stream so much content and make ISO rips of all my BD's)

Only if there are features you value greatly that your Panny does not support. And even then, it is unlikely you would need to spend $500 to get those features in a reliable brand name player.
Don't get me wrong - I'm not knocking Oppo hardware - but there are plenty of alternatives worth considering at far lower prices.

Check *bay for the Oppo BDP-83 <$300.00.
That's a CORVETTE next to your BD35!
post #14841 of 14978
I concur! When my 35 died, the Oppo 83 is what I got. It's better, faster, and more versatile in every respect. Their newer models are even better in some respects.....

I sold my BD35 to my mail carrier. He's pleased with it. I also sold him a Sony BDP player that is much newer and faster than the BD35. The Sony also plays SACD's and supports DSD. He also likes my two Oppo's BDP-83.!
post #14845 of 14978
hey guys i just noticed something on my 35, which im running the player through a denon 1712

when i press display on the remote, then go to audio, sound effects is on re-master 1

should sound effects be off or what should i choose? i just dont remember if i set it there on purpose
post #14846 of 14978
It only affects PCM recorded at 48 kHz or less, not Dolby or DTS sources when the digital outputs are set to bitstream. The manual says the Re-Master settings add some high frequencies not included in the recording. Looks to be some sort of audio upconverting. Use it if it sounds better to you.
post #14847 of 14978
i have it set to bistream. ill set sound effects to off

thanks
post #14848 of 14978
Well guys, after all these years, I'm finally having some playability problems with my Panasonic DMP-BD55.

It seems to be having problems with some of my latest Blu-Rays.

For example, I have "Tron Legacy" and "Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha:The Movie 1st" (a Japanese import), that played just fine a few months, ago. Now "Tron Legacy, I have to load it a few times before it plays, but the "Nanoha" disc don't read at all.
Meanwhile, most of my older discs (like "Despicable Me!", "Up!", and "DVE HD Basics"), loads up just fine.

I've already did the firmware update some months ago, and it worked fine. I'm beginning to wonder if some of my Blu-Rays are going bad?

I forgot to mention, I tried those same discs on my Sony Playstation3 (fat 60gig launch version) and it plays without a hitch.

It is time for a new player. You will really like the load speeds that the new players have vs. the old 35/55s.

True, but the thing is, my television (Mitsubishi WS-55511) has no HDMI connection, and all the new Blu-Ray players no longer has Hi-Def component output.
I rather buy a brand new tv (when I can afford it) before I replace my Blu-Ray player.
