Sony BDP-S580 Blu-ray Disc Player (Black)
Used & New from: $94.94
Freezing with disc playback/restarting (HELP!!!!) I recently purchased this Blu-ray player and was excited to use it for the first time. I watched a few movies on it without too many problems (it froze the first time that I used it with my X-Men Blu-ray), but I ran into a big issue today when I put in my new copy of Boardwalk Empire on Blu-ray. When "Play All" is selected on the main menu, everything is great, but the second that I go to "Select Episode", everything freezes and within the space of about 4 minutes, it will restart and take me all the way through the disc playback till I get to the same main menu. This, along with the other freezing and the fact that I've "unplugged" the device a few times out of frustration, is really upsetting to me. A big purchase of a student and one that doesn't seem to be worth it right now. Does anyone have any ideas for me? Has this happend to anyone else?

I type from Spain with the same problem. I've got the Sony BDP-S480 and the Boarddwalk's Empire's first season. When I try to select an episode, the player crashes and I must to switch off the cord power. I have no doubt, that it's a firwmare problem. Sony must develope a new firmaware to fix it.

Same thing happens on my Sony BDV-E780W. Looking like a Sony issue. When I contacted them they told me to return the disc as defective. Not!

hold stop for a few seconds also works if the screen is blurry.
