  • Help Pls with non cooperative Blu ray Player..

    Hi,

    Just splurged on a new Pioneer BDP-120 Blu Ray player from JB's.

    Got it home, plugged it in, inserted normal DVD. Lovely picture.

    Drive to Video Shop, hire two new release Blu Ray DVD's. Insert in Machine.

    Machine takes ages to load. Menu screen eventually appears. Image stunted and pixilated. Awfull sounds eminate from machine like its jammed or jamming up in the drive.

    I initially think that the disc must be at fault but try the other Disc I hired. Same result.

    Try some more. Screen eventually says "Incompatible Disc".

    Is this normal behaviour for Blu Ray players?

    Even though its brand new player do I need upload anything to make it work?

    That's certainly not normal I believe blu rays don't have different regions (could be wrong) your best bet would be to take it back to jb's

    edit: I've got a couple of blu Ray movies you could use to see if they work? I'm in gosnells so not far from you

        BluRay has regions - Blu-ray Disc - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - but it sounds more likelky that your machine has screwed the pig.

        Take it back, for a replacement/refund.

            Take it back.

            I've got the previous model, the BDP-51FD and while blu rays take longer to load up, it's only 10-15 seconds or so to get to the menu.

            A stunted image/pixelated could be if the signal is out of sync with the tv. How is it connected to the screen? HDMI? It that's the case then get into the menu and switch the "hi speed" HDMI connection to on or off (the opposite to what it's set to initially which should be on)

            But a squealing from the drive indicates a fault so take it back and get a new one. Then if the new one still gives you an out of sync picture, try the above.
