Mine is working OK. I use a wired network. Probably should try power off/on to see if you can reset network. Make sure at least one other network app is working.

I'm trying and failing to play a MKV file from the front USB panel. I get no error messages -- it just won't play.

The video part of that report is identical to the video part of other MKV files I have played successfully except for the "Muxing mode" field.

And the player's manual says it can handle AAC audio.

So any idea why this won't play?

Anyone have any problems with the regular Avengers blu ray (not 3D disc)? My chapter pop up menu came up a couple of times.
post #3844 of 3944
I also have this issue with some other blu-ray discs... It not only appears on my PS3 but on my Pioneer and Sony Blu-Ray players as well... The problem is intermittent, at times they pop up, sometimes not at all...

Sony blu-ray players use new codes which are different than sony DVD players. Most remotes more than a few years old do not have the new codes. If you've tried all the sony codes then your remote simply doesn't have them. You can learn them if possible or get a new remote. The $15 RCA RCRP05B has the correct code which is DVD 1516. If you are outside the US, most any recent one-for-all will have the code as well, 1516 or 21516 depending on the model.

Another thing that should work is to enable bravia sync on your player and simplink on your TV and just use the LG TV code to control your player over HDMI rather than IR, assuming your TV remote has buttons for the transport functions (play, stop, rew, etc.).

Is it possible to set the S570 to output 3D content at 720p? I have a projector (Vivitek D803W-3D) capable of frame packed 3D, but only at 720p. In the setup menun there are only two options for 3D Output, Auto and Off. Can the S570 output frame packed 720p for 3D Blu-Ray or do I need to replace it with a different player? Any suggestions of other players that can output frame packed 720p?

Somehow my remote for the 570 doesn't control the player any longer. I can use the 570 remote to turn on and off the Sony tv the 570's attached to, and volume of the tv, but I can't control ANY function of the 570. The Sony tv control works on the 570, but doesn't have all the functions of the BR remote. I can't figure out what happened here. The BR remote has to be working since it can control some functions of the tv.... And the Tv remote can control both.... Why doesn't the BR recognize the BR remote control?

I downloaded the Sony app to my phone to control the 570, but that works over the internet. That works great...but don't want to use my phone to control my blu ray.

Something blocking the remote signal receiver in the player?
Batteries getting weak and it shows up first with the player?
post #3850 of 3944
Sensor is clear and I wiped down the front of the player. I changed batteries in the remote and it made no difference. I have also taken out the batteries and pushed each button twice, according to Sony's website, this resets the remote.... No difference.. This makes no sense.

Try holding the remote just inches in front of the IR window on the player and report back. If it works at close range, you have some new source of IR interference.

Another thing you can try is to look at the IR LED of the remote through a digital camera or phone camera. If it flashes when you press a button, the remote is fine and the problem lies in the player.

Close range still not working. And looking through my cell phone camera, LED is working fine. Still the TV controller is able to control the BR and the BR remote is able to control the TV. Somehow I think the code changed on the BR remote. I don't even know if that's possible, but no other idea's come to mind.

Shot in the dark. I don't get that push every button twice unless it was designed to drain any juice left after pulling the batteries.

I would pull the batteries, short out the terminals, and let it sit overnight. That should drain any caps with a charge. Nothing to lose and cheaper than buying a new remote.

Thanks.... Going to try that now.

It isn't possible to change the code (address) on these remotes or players, so that's not it. Your TV remote is probably controlling the player over HDMI (bravia sync) and not IR straight to the player. You can prove this to yourself by completely blocking the player's IR window and you'll still be able to control it with the TV remote, that's my hunch anyway. Remote could be bad, but that's highly unlikely IMO, especially since it still controls the TV. That leaves some kind of hardware or software failure in the player.

If you want to try another remote, lots of cheap universals will work, like the $15 RCA RCRP05B available lots of places (uses DVD code 1516). It can be programmed for every function that was on your original remote with codes and will work your TV. A cheap harmony will work as well.

I just started having a problem with mine. When I play a disc, there's distortion on the bottom quarter of the screen. I assume the lens needs cleaned even though the manual forbids a commercial lens cleaner to be used. It's really annoying. I chatted with a Sony Tech and tried changing the HDMI cable and it didn't help. Then he had me reset to factory settings and that took half the distortion line away.

I think I solved the problem. I changed the output settings to 1080i instead of 1080p.

Did you ever ascertain if the 590 can read NFTS disks via the USB port?

DLNA support works better, and has more choices of server software that works. In fact, everything I've used, with the exception of my older server i had purchased for the 570 work pretty flawlessly.
24p for DVDs is now a separate option from BD, so the issues with DVDs forced into 24p causing dropouts is gone.
Netflix has the current up to date interface.. (moot point for me)
My 570 still works and it's about 2 and a half years old now, so i still use it as a back up player.
I had originally put it up for donation to the apartment complex for the clubhouse and the public tv, but the manager couldn't come up with a way to install it and guarantee it not be stolen, and she didn't want me to donate something so valuable to just have it stolen later. so i'm holding onto it until we can figure something out. If someone has any experience with installing a blu-ray player in public and putting safeguards into place to prevent theft, i'm all ears.

I did too and discovered that it just takes a long time to load. If you hit play and other buttons in impatience, it will lock up the player. Just put it in and do nothing, let it load itself.

JCHawaii: The 590 can read NTFS drives via USB (which can be confirmed by viewing the PDF of the user manual from Sony).

The 570 cannot.
post #3862 of 3944
I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this. I have the Costco version of this player, the BDP-BX57 and it's been giving me a problem for awhile now I thought I should finally ask for help on.

Sometimes, often, when I load up a movie, the overlaying menus just wont appear. I can see the background image or movie playing on the menu screen, but the over lay with "Play" "setup" and so on just isn't there. Usually if I stop a disc completely and then try again, it will work, but sometimes it even takes a few tries.

On Disney movies, it will also do this during the previews at the start of a disc. The menu that says "start movie, next preview, menus" will often not pop up."

When either of these things happen, pressing my menu or pop up menu button does not do anything.

I've had the player a few years now, so I don't know if this is a sign it's dying or what.

Anything I can do?
post #3863 of 3944
I am getting the "No Disc" message on my Sony BDP-S570. No BR or DVD disc plays anymore. I opened it up. When I try to use it I can see that the head is moving 4 times and the disc just tries to spin a little without getting up in speed at all. I see that some older Sony players had an issue with fuse F402 that was going bad (the solution was to bypass it). Does the Sony BDP-S570 player have the same design issue? Or it's something else?
post #3864 of 3944
Blu-ray players are so cheap these days it's not even worth the time to open them up smile.gif
post #3865 of 3944
Does anyone know what I might be able to do about my menus not appearing? It not only does that, but sometimes, discs just wont load. The player gets stuck. This seems to happen after a disc has been put in the player and I turn it off due to not finishing what I was watching. When I turn it back on to finish the disc, it has problems loading it.
post #3866 of 3944
I just wanted to let everyone know, that my player is going on 3 years old and is still rock solid. I only use it as a backup, or when needed since i have the BDP-S590 units but if one of them broke the 570 could easily be put into use full time, as a disc player streaming services lack now since it's an older player, but even so the services it has such as netflix, i can still use without issues.

Never had a problem either. I use it almost every day for Pandora (since it buffers) and maybe a BD once a month. I would get a S590 is something dies.

My 570 is still going strong too. Do you do much streaming (Netflix & Hulu) with the 590 MacinMan? If so, what do you think about the 590 compared to the 570...from a streaming standpoint? What advantages or disadvantages does the 590 have vs the 570?

The 590 has the most recent netflix interface and supports 1080p 5.1 streams on both amazon, and netflix and other services, DLNA support is much better and doesn't require transcoding as the 570 does. If you have other more in depth questions take a look at:http://www.avsforum.com/t/1396469/official-sony-bdp-s590-and-bdp-390-thread
