This is my third player to date, 1st, was just shagged buttons on the front were broken so.... 2nd was the dealers and worked brilliantly, however i had to take it back as my replacement had turned up. 3rd, the one in the lounge now; Version 1.76 Everything looked fine as the Screensaver was perfectly displayed, however; First disc i tried was Region 2 "the Firm" all i got was a black screen and a white square, and sound. I thought hang on, so i put in Ultimate T2 Region 2, this time i got no pic at all, but got sound in 5.1. I then thought i would try my only region 1 disc, Blade platinum edition, worked fine. So i trot into the service menu to change the region setting. When i got there it didnt seem to be set to anything just black where the region number normally is. I cycled through until region 2 and then reset the machine, this time i got exactly the same from the Region 2 discs, but this time the Region 1 discs were "invalid region". The souns is travelling via component to the amp, and the video is travelling by component via the amp. I will obviously contact my dealer tommorow, but i just wanted to check i am not being a "dribbler". I dont think its the way i have set it up as all i did was change the leads over from the prevous player and that worker fine. P.S Does it matter what black leve you set it to i.e IRE 7.5 or 0 Sorry for such a lng post and any help really would be appreciated.
