Disc Won't Eject

If a disc won't eject from the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player, you can force the disc to eject by doing the following:

  1. Turn off the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player.
  2. Simultaneously hold down the "OK," "B" and "Y" buttons on the remote control that came with the Blu-ray player for at least five seconds until "00 RET" appears on the Blu-ray player's digital display.
  3. Press either the right-pointing arrow button or the "Power" button on the remote control until "06 FTO" appears on the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player's digital display.
  4. Press either the "OK" button on the remote control or the "Open/Close" button located on the front of the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player.

Forgot Parental Passcode

If you forgot the parental passcode on your Panasonic Blu-ray player, perform the following steps to clear the parental passcode so you can fully access your device:

  1. With the Blu-ray player turned on instead of off, perform Steps 1 and 2 in the Disc Won't Eject section. "00 RET" should appear on the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player's digital display.
  2. Press either the right-pointing arrow button or the "Power" button on the remote control until "03 VL" appears on the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player's digital display.
  3. Press either the "OK" button on the remote control or the "Open/Close" button located on the front of the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player.

Device Connected Using USB Isn't Recognized

  • USB devices connected while you a viewing a disc or using one of the Internet apps on the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player will not be recognized. Disconnect the USB device, return to the Blu-ray player's home screen and then reconnect the USB device for it to be recognized.
  • USB hard disc drives and memory sticks connected to the back of the Panasonic DMP-BDT210 model Blu-ray player won't be recognized by the device; you must connect these accessories to the USB ports on the front of the device for the Blu-ray player to recognize them. If you are using the Panasonic DMP-BDT110 model Blu-ray player, it doesn't matter where you connect those types of devices.
  • Make sure you're using the USB cable that came with the USB device you're attempting to connect to the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player. Any cable other than the one that came with the device may result in the two devices not being able to communicate with each other.

Monitor Not Playing 3D

  • Ensure that the monitor you are outputting the 3D video from the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player to is capable of displaying 3D video. If the device isn't, you won't see 3D video; if the device is capable of displaying 3D video, you may need to set the monitor up to display a 3D picture.
  • If you're running the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player through another device, such as a stereo receiver, and then connecting that device to a monitor, the video on the external device may not appear in 3D, even if the monitor is capable of displaying a 3D picture. This will happen if the device you are running the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player to the monitor through doesn't support 3D video. Check the user manual for the device you are connecting the Blu-ray player through to see if it supports carrying 3D video.
  • Check the video output settings on the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player. You can switch between 2D and 3D playback, and the device may be set up for 2D playback, even if the disc is capable of being played in 3D. You can check the player's playback settings by navigating to the 3D BD-Video Playback part of the Disc section of the player's main menu.

Distorted Picture Using HDMI Cable

The settings for the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player's HDMI output resolution are not correct and need to be reset. You can reset the player's HDMI output resolution by doing the following:

  1. Turn on the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player.
  2. Simultaneously hold down the "OK," "B" and "Y" buttons on the remote control that came with the Blu-ray player for at least five seconds until "00 RET" appears on the Blu-ray player's digital display.
  3. Press either the right-pointing arrow button or the "Power" button on the remote control until "04 RPG" appears on the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player's digital display.
  4. Press either the "OK" button on the remote control or the "Open/Close" button located on the front of the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player for at least three seconds to fully reset the player's HDMI resolution settings.

Firmware Update

For problems that can't be resolved through other troubleshooting methods, try updating the Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player's firmware. You can update the firmware as long as you're connected to the Internet by doing the following:

  1. Press the "Home" button on the remote control that came with the Blu-ray player.
  2. Highlight "Setup" and then press "OK."
  3. Highlight "Player Settings" and then press "OK."
  4. Highlight "Others" and then press "OK."
  5. Highlight "OK" and then press "OK."
  6. Highlight "Firmware Update" and then press "OK."
  7. Highlight "OK" and then press "OK."
  8. Highlight "Update Now" and then press "OK." The player's firmware begins updating.

Don't turn off or attempt to do anything else on your Panasonic DMP-BDT210/DMP-BDT110 Blu-ray player until the update is complete. The word "Finish" appears on the screen when the update is finished installing.

      Hi Jesse,

      I don't believe so. This USB port recognizes some audio and video file types on connected media, such as a flash drive, but I'm 99 percent certain it doesn't recognize a connected iPod.

      Best,

      Max.
