I have 2 Sony UBP X800 (Gen 1) players and and am having problems with my first one not even recognizing some 4K discs but they play fine on the other player. I first noticed it with No Time To Die but in checking some of my other discs I found others too. Blurays play fine. The disc never starts reading and I eventually get an error that there is no disc in the tray or the disc is damaged. Is there anything I can try to salvage this player (I've already updated the firmware) or is it time for an new one? I see Sony has a UBP V800 V2 out there now - is that more reliable or would going with the more expensive Panasonic player ($500) with the good ratings be a better bet? One reason I originally went with the Sony was because it can play Audio DVDs which I have a few of.
