Recently bought new blu-ray player, so I was going to give my old player to a friend. Went to set it up for them but the player was not responding to the remote. Player works fine from the buttons on the player. After researching the issue on the web, I removed the batteries, pressed each button on the remote for 3 secs, pressed & held the remote power button for thirty seconds and replaced with new batteries. I've checked that the remote is sending a ir signal when pressing a button (using mobile phone camera), but the signal isn't instant, you have to hold a button (any one) before the signal is sent. Player and remote were working fine about a week ago. Any ideas?
