Default Problems with my Pioneer BDP-320

Hello,

I have had my Pioneer BDP-320 for a little over three years and it has worked very well.

Recently, it has been having trouble playing discs. Frequently, after closing the door it will try to load for 30 seconds, making an intermittent whirring sound, and then the readout displays something like "can't play disc" or "disc unknown."

Typically, I can get the disc to play after three or four attempts, but it concerns me and seems to be getting worse. It definitely happens on multiple discs and some discs that used to play without problem.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Hello, in the 3 years you had it, when was the last time you cleaned the laser head? You could try and clean it with a Blu-ray Disc cleaner.

It might have trouble reading because the laser head might be dusty.

Thank you for the advice. Are there any particular ones that anyone would recommend? On Amazon, I see brands for Endust, Norazza, Helle, and others.

Any recommendations?

I bought a second hand Pioneer BDP-320 , but the remote control is not responding, only the on/off button works. (batteries are new)
When I start the player its comes with the navi setup screen, cannot select anything.

Is there a solution for this?
Is the remote control to be replaced? Or is the unit defect?
I have a remote control with p/n VXX3318.

Can I use this player in Europe? Or plays it only NTSC discs?

Try unplugging for a few hours. This will reboot the system on restart and will fix some problems.
