I have the same problem it just says hello and nothing else was working fine and all the sudden this. Seems to be a problem a lot of people are having! Maybe should have went with a different name brand!


Hi. When I switch on my DMP-BD77, the background display has gone pink and I also have no sound!!! I have reset the player to factory settings to see if this works but no.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


DMP-BD77 Blueray player has the same problem as reported by others. It does not respond to the remote except to eject. It says 'HELLO' but will not turn off or respond to any other commands except the eject. Disc spins contstantly but you cannot get it to play. To turn it off you have to unplug it. It strikes me that this could be a safety hazard as it could overheat and catch fire.


EL MISMO PROBLEMA Y SIN SOLUCION


Player displays disc not compatible no matter disk inserted.


Turn it on and get a hello message. Tried unpugging it, nothing works.


My dmp-bd77 model is displaying the 'hello' message also. Factory instructions to reset it do not work--nothing works.


After playing only 10-12 discs the player now refuses to power up. Plug and fuse checked OK. After reading other posts it appears this player is a load of rubbish due to main board fault.

I purchased (in Greece) a Panasonic DMP-BD77 player for my daughter, who lives in Athens. After the recent channel changes there, the player will not now play any DVDs, - including recent purchases - saying that they are "incompatible", whereas it previously played them all OK. It is now out of guarantee. Any suggestions, please?
Many thanks,

Problem: The picture and sound (video and audio) keeps skipping and jumping.

There are 0 comments on this problem.

Solution 1: There are usually two reasons for skipping or jumping: dirt and scratches.
Dirt: There may be some dirt on the DVD (wipe gently with a lint-free cloth from the centre of the disc outwards). If the jumping and skipping is on all discs, the lens might have some dirt or dust on it. Buy a cleaning disc (google!) and let it run.
Scratches: Scratched discs are difficult to mend. If it is a personal disc (i.e. home-made, photos, home movies etc), you might be able to copy the disc to a computer and then make a fresh copy. If it is a store bought disc, you might still be able to try to do this but the disc might have copy protection. It is illegal to break copy protection, so I can't recommend the many guides on Google for doing this.

Problem: The drive is stuck and isn't coming out, and when it does come out, it doesn't go back in straight.

Solution 1: It sounds like your disc tray is out of alignment. Google "fix disc tray alignment" for help.

Problem: I can't hear anything happening when I put a disc in. Why?

There are 0 comments on this problem.

Solution 1: This may be a spindle motor failure. You can replace these for anywhere between twenty and fifty pounds if you do it yourself, but you will void your warranty. If your machine cost you anywhere under 80 pounds, it's probably not worth you doing this.

Drive spindle motor failure is not the only reason for this, but it is one of the most common. Before you buy a new motor, check other problems first, such as checking if anything is catching on the mechanism and stopping the disc from spinning correctly

Problem: Discs come out of my player with a scratch on them. WHY????

There are 0 comments on this problem.

Solution 1: There is probably something that has broken off inside the casing and is touching the disc as it spins or you insert or remove a disc. Check thoroughly inside for any sharp plastic or metal sticking up near where the disc sits. Only use cheap or blank discs to check that this problem is solved.

Problem: I have two of these and both fail to power up,had a look inside got mains in all the caps look ok (not swollen leaking) has anyone come across a common fault on these?thanks

There are 0 comments on this problem.

Solution 1: I too have two of this model player with the same issue.It's NOT the power supply or disc drive the issue is on the main board where all the IC's are located.
As yet i cannot gain any info regarding these issues but it's clearly not good enough especially as it seems such a common issue,rendering this player useless.Panasonic utilising too cheap components seems like the problem.

Problem: Hi player just displays hello it won't open or do any other functions even when you remove the power and then reapply just says hello

Solution 1: Hi
This player seems to fail A LOT.
I hav three bought cheap.
One I got working ( as it supposedly wouldn't read any disc) I cleaned the lens and spindle gripper pad and it's been fine ever since.
The other two. One just displays 'HELLO' sometimes and that's it.It di work the first two times and played back fine, then decided it wasn't going to anymore.
The other one just refuses to power up.
The issue is in the main board where the majority of IC's are.
As yet know one seems to know WHY these fail like this.
A classic case of the cheaper you build the item down to the more faults/issues you have.
