I want to try to put an older f/w back on to the BD (overwiting the latest 2.16 f/w) and see if that helps overcome the problems.
Well, I have got my BD 1600 working again after having the same problems as most here.
How I did it I hear you ask - no blinking idea !!
I just tried everything at once -before testing a movie.
USB with older f/w version (2.09) then with a CD (couldn't read CD showed up) and then both at once - and still showed 2.16 f/w (as expected).
Took out CD (leaving USB in) and turned off via remote and back on - still 2.16 f/w.
Turned off / on with FF being continuosly held down on remote the unit.
Then pulled power plug out (whilst unit was still on and crossed my fingers) waited 5 secs and pushed plug back in and pushing FF on unit as well.
By now I thought I would try a disc, so put in BluRay and it worked - tried a few others and problems - put some DVD movie / music and all ok.
No more 'Load' continually showing on unit or 'Close'.
So me happy now
