Updating sony blu ray player bdp s301
Martin After I hacked my BDP S-1100 successfully (see my previous post here) it now stopped working altogether. When I leave it off for a while it wil start working again, but only for 5 minutes.
Now I am not sure if it is simply broken without me having to do with it, or if what I did broke it?
It does flash one time, however waiting much longer it flashes three times quickly. The Remote works fine with the DVD player just nothing, no response, no "OK" when I hit 1,2,3,4,5. Programming the buttons on the oneforall remote is easy enough and i get the flashes confirming the buttons are programmed OK.
I have followed the instructions carefully as above and nothing happens when I point at my DVD player. My DVD player has no flashing light, or standby light.
But I am now a bit hesitant to hack the new player again..thoughts? Yiu need to wait for it to stop blinking before pressing the magic key again (between steps 5 and 6, etc.) I'm hoping I don't face the same issues as Martin (post #26).
I was also wondering how one could reverse the region code hack? I am pretty sure it is possible, so the question should be does anyone know how? Only hacked it today, but I'll let you know if the machine dies on me.
We tried also a code (1516 in our case) that would allow us to control the player with the One For All control, but the only thing we achieved was to turn the player ON and OFF by pressing 5... I have a BPD-BX2 and using the oneforall remote procedure (URC 7740) I have a couple questions: After inputting the 0533 I jumped right into the other steps and everything blinked on each step. I have no idea what stand by is so I turned it off and back on. I have tried Region 1, 2 and 3 DVDs and now thankfully it will play them all! Does anyone know if resetting the DVD player to factory default settings is required before doing this hack? Unfortunately it does not seems to work with my SONY BDP S6200 - Canada and One4All URC7960 All the process seems to go well until entering 1,2,3,4,5 ...
My blu ray was on the whole time I did the code with the words Home showing on the display screen. I disconnected the player from the mains and then plugged it in again just to check if it would lock again but it seems it is still region free. I have no acknowledgment and the player is still not zone free Use the Sony remote to bring the player out of standby, make sure there isn't a disc in it; Press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on the One For All remote.
It is very important to use the 0533 setup code to setup your DVD controller - even if this code doesn't appear to work. In my case, pressing on the number 5 powered the Blu-ray player on and off.. Bonjour, Je viens d'acheter un lecteur sony 400 (Model BDP CX 960 J'essaye votre manip mais sans succès lorsque l'on fait la manipulation avec la "One for all", le lecteur doit-être éteint ou allumé (je ne comprends pas la phrase Use the Sony remote to bring the player out of standby). Maintenir le bouton Magic enfoncé jusqu'à ce que le bouton DVD clignote deux fois. However, it must have worked because I can play my region 1 DVDs now.To Marc: I agree it's confusing as I didn't understand it at first either, but I figured out that the first stage (the instructions with the magic codes above etc.) is all about programming the All-In-One.The next stage is actually transmitting those codes over to the Sony Blu-Ray player to make it region-free, so this is what you do after having programmed the All-In-One: 1) (Using the Sony remote) turn the Sony Blu-Ray player ON (if it's not already on) 2) ensure that there is no disc inside 3) Wait till the Blu-Ray player is ready (its display should read "Home") 4) (Using the One-For-All remote), press the following number buttons after each other: 1 2 3 4 5 5) If I remember correctly there should now be an "OK" in the Blu-Ray player's display 6) (using the Sony remote) turn OFF the Blu-Ray player 4) turn ON the Blu-Ray player, insert a different region DVD and enjoy your success! I purchased a Sony S5200 Blu-Ray player in USA and a RCA URC RCR003RWD.Martin WE have a bdp-s5100 and a URC-7140 and it did not work. We tried the 0533, the 000533 and also the 20533 versions of the code at the very beginning and none has worked. Has anyone tried this specifically with a Sony BDP-BX57 and All For One URC-7140 and had success?We saw no "OK" on the screen of the player or else. When you hit 12345 is the blue flasing light what I'm looking for? I can confirm that the hack above works for a Sony BDP-S490 with a One For All URC-4170 remote. For anyone who is familiar with this combo I also ran a firmware update recently and I am not operating on the software version: MO4. I have tried every code sequence, sequence modification mentioned here and I'm still not able to unlock it.
