Just wanted to give this one more bump to see if anyone had any other ideas of what I could try to get the BD-A1010 up and functioning properly again.
Errors I am getting:
- I tried several different discs, Blue Ray and DVD, and nothing will work.
- With the BlueRays, the player attempts to read them twice and both times makes a fairly loud vibrating noise that doesn't sound good at all. Then it gives me the first error that I mentioned, "unknown disk".
- When I try to play DVD's I don't even get that, it just says "no disc" and it does not sound like the player is making an attempt to read it (no loud vibrating noise).
- I tried several different BD's and DVD's from different years and studios. Nothing works. It's not the discs because they work fine on my home PC.
I removed the cover of the player and the loader to blast both cabinets out with a can of compressed air. While in there I took video of the player's behavior which matches what I describe above when the covers are on:
Attempts I've made to correct based on advice from this forum:
1 - I unplugged the unit for at least thirty minutes and unplugged the ethernet cord.
2 - Left internet unplugged and plugged power back in. Still got the same error.
3 - Used the recovery file from the flash drive. Confirmed that the firmware was an earlier version.
4 - I used a different flash drive to update the firmware back to 1.7712 again per the instructions in this forum.
5 - I left the ethernet unplugged for this. I also plugged it back in, rebooted and tried it again.
Any last thoughts before I pitch it and buy a new player? Are there more functions or features that I could disable to find out if they are causing the errors?
