Updating firmware on sony blu ray player

06-Dec-2019 18:29

It would be ideal to have the BLU-RAY player automatically turn on once a week or once a month in the middle of the night and download the latest updates when the player is not being used.

It is true that some brands and models of products that loose power during an update during flashing will need factory serviced unless they the ability to store a backup firmware.

The player might already be messed up since it sounds like it locked up already during a firmware update.

At some point after several hours you will need to power cycle it since something is wrong.

I was just as pissed as you (I think) The wonders of the tech world What you could do is head to your local bar as fast as you can and drink, continue for an hour then slink back home and see if the download has been completed. You should wait until the BLU-RAY player finishes the firmware update.

If it is stuck in that mode for several hours then something went wrong and the power plug to the player needs pulled for 10 seconds and plugged back in.

My update has four numbers 1 thru 4 It went through 1 thru 3 in about 15 mnutes,but has been stuck on 4 for over an hour,the modem light is not blinking much,i'm getting worried now,but I am afraid to pull the plug,dont wanna damage my BD player!It is true that some brands and models of products that loose power during an update during flashing will need factory serviced unless they have the ability to store a backup firmware image.Manufactories should make BLU-RAY players that automatically install updates around 3AM or another time set by the user.At two hours I would unplug the player power cord and plug it back in.No firmware update should take more then 30 minutes with the slowest broadband connection.

When I went on line with my PS3 the downloads took forever and ever!
