Why Does The Front Of My Player Turn Off When Watching A Movie?

Your Blu-ray Player comes with an Energy Saving mode that reduces power consumption by setting the front panel to turn off automatically when there is no operation for 5 seconds.

  • If you’re watching a movie and Energy Saving mode is ON the front panel display will be black as if the player is off but the Blu-ray movie will continue to play. You won't be able to see how long the movie has been playing unless you press a button on the remote control, but the display will turn off again.

  • Disable Energy Saving mode
