Toshiba BDX2000

Found 8th Nov 2010
I did something rather silly over the weekend, I tried to update the firmware of my dads Toshiba BDX2000 blu-ray player, I thought it had all worked ok, then I realised I downloaded the wrong firmware, the Canadian firmware, so now the blu ray player thinks it's Canadian and won't play UK DVDs/BDs

Does anyone at all have a copy of the UK firmware? I'm not in my dads good books at the second... I emailed Toshiba but they haven't replied yet..

Lol that was me... Got no idea what to do...

Where did you download the update from and did they not have a UK version?

Would seem you may have made a monumental **** up there, maybe post a question here for help.

I got it from gizmomods.com/upd…yer
's the only place I could find firmware for the player, didn't think to check where the firmware file had come from (at the bottom of that article). I'm a bit annoyed this player can't update over its ethernet connection, or it even lets you update with wrong firmware... but meh, can't find the UK version anywhere

Try contacting the other doofus in the comments from the UK that did the same but managed to get through to Toshiba and get an update.

I Also upgraded to the wrong firmware, i called toshiba, and they arranged a replacement to be sent to me 2 days later by DPD (courier) Brand new as well!! There is no UK Firmware update.

Call Them 0844 856 0730

Hey, what did you say to them when you phoned them? anything in particular? Or just, I installed the wrong firmware.

I said, that i went on their website to upgrade firmware, and once completed, it ended up being the wrong region, so i could no long play region 2/B discs. They said there is NO new UK firmware update, so their only option is to replace the unit.

Received mine a couple days later, courier came out and swapped the unit out of a sealed box like for like!!
