I've had mine for a couple of months and have watched a few BR movies without any problems to speak of till this evening. I put in a brand new BR DVD and the player would not load the disc. There was a message on the screen saying the disc could not be played. I tried a few more BR DVD's that we've watched with out any problems in the past...none of them will load! Next step was to try a SD DVD...loaded without any problems at all. Went back to another previously viewed BR DVD...same damn thing! Front panel display says NO DISC! I even tried pulling the plug and letting the unit sit for a minute or two before plugging it back in. Same problem. Before you ask, yes I installed the firmware update the same day I bought the player. Anyone else experience this mess?
