Setting up Your BD-J5900 Blu-ray player

The steps below will help you quickly set up your Blu-ray player so you can start enjoying all of your favorite content. Before you begin, make sure you have: Your Wireless Network Name (SSID), a Wireless Network's Key (password) and a Blu-ray remote control

To setup your Blu-ray player, follow the steps below:

  1. Power on your player. Using the top or bottom arrow buttons on your Blu-ray remote, highlight your preferred on screen menu language, and then press enter. English is automatically highlighted by default.

                                               

                                      

  2. Start is automatically highlighted. Press enter.

                                        

                                       

  3. Using the top or bottom arrow buttons on your BD remote, move to the TV aspect ratio supported by your TV, and then press enter.

                                       

                                     

  4. Next, the network options appear. Wireless is set by default. The BD player will search for available networks in the area and display a list. Use the bottom arrow buttons on your Blu-ray remote to highlight your network name (SSID) and then press enter.

    • A lock icon on the left of the signal strength bars indicate the network is protected and a security key must be entered.
    • A white cursor arrow indicates the network supports a WPS (PIN) connection.

                                

                                   

  5. The on-screen keyboard appears, use the arrow buttons on the BD remote to enter your network key. Be sure to highlight DONE when you are finished entering the network key. If you press the enter button on the BD remote, the last letter highlighted will be entered instead and the network test will fail.

                             

                                   

  6. The player then connects to the network and runs a network test. When complete, OK is automatically highlighted. Press enter. An 'Initial settings completed' confirmation will display for a few seconds.

                              

                                       

  7. The Home menu is then displayed.
    1. If the network test fails, confirm that you have selected the correct network and have entered the network key correctly. If the network test takes longer than 1 minute to complete, this ususally indicates the network key was entered incorrectly

                                                 

    2. If the network test continues to fail, power off the player, the router, and the modem. Then power the modem back on and wait for it to connect to the network, then power on the router. The online indicator turns on once it is connected to the modem. Finally, power on the BD player and wait about 30 seconds before going to Settings > Network > Network Test and running another test. You can also go to Settings > Network Settings > Disconnect > and then select IP settings to try connecting to the network again.

                                             

Choosing the Aspect Ratio

Most modern HDTVs use 16:9 and most standard definition TVs use 4:3. See below for more information

  • 16:9 Original: Select if your TV is 16:9 (Widescreen). All content will be displayed at the original aspect ratio. Content formatted in 4:3 will be displayed with black bars on the left and right.

                                         

  • 16:9 Full: Select if your TV is 16:9 (Widescreen). All content will fill the full screen. Content formatted in 4:3 will be stretched.

                                  

  • 4:3 Letter Box: Select if your TV is 4:3. All content will be displayed at the original aspect ratio. Content formatted in 16:9 will be displayed with black bars on the top and bottom.

                                     

  • 4:3 Pan-Scan: Select if your TV is 4:3. All content will be displayed at the original aspect ratio. 16:9 content will have the extreme left and right portion cut off.
