PIONEER BDP-170-K SERVICE MODE AND FIRMWARE UPDATE

PIONEER BDP-170-K 

SERVICE MODE AND FIRMWARE UPDATE 

SERVICE MODE
In Service Mode, there is a mixture of Design and Development, Production Line Menu and Service Menu.
Here, menu items that are usable in Service and instructions are listed. Only use the menu explained in this document. Others are for Design and Product lines. Each item of Service mode can be quit by pressing the [STOP] button. However, to check operations such as normal playback, turn the unit OFF then back ON again.
HOW TO ENTER SERVICE MODE
1. Press [HOME MENU] button on the remote controller and select "Initial Setup" from the home menu.
2. Pressing the number buttons on the remote control in the following order [5] > [1] > [7] > [7] will display the Menu screen.
(If it does not appear, slowly press the number keys with a 1 second interval.)
Laser Check
Verifies the output value of each laser diode inside the pick-up area. Implement according to the following procedures.
1 Select "[4] Laser Check" with the b button from the Service Mode screen and press the [ENTER] button. (perform without disc in tray)
2 After a few seconds, measurement and judgment results will be displayed, as shown below. If all measurement (Meas) values are 1/3 or greater or less than triple the target values (hex), [Pass] will be displayed.
If any of the measurement values is out of this range, [NG] will be displayed.
Enter SP Mode
There are 17 items in the SP Mode, the main items being for Production line and Design/Development. The following is to explain items usable in Service. Other items require time for completion, or are not suited for Service purposes. If you select them by mistake, press the [STOP] button to end that item you accidentally selected. (none of the items will affect the main unit)
 [ Instructions ]
1 Select "[7] Enter SP Mode" with the DOWN  button from the Service Mode screen, and press the [ENTER] button.
2 The SP Mode window menu will be displayed, so select "Start Up" and press the [ENTER] button.
3 The tray will automatically open and the dedicated screen will appear. Place the disc you wish to use on the tray, and push it in manually. ([Close] button will not function)
4 Start Up mode will be initiated, and count will start. Implement 20,000 times (4E20 in hex), and if no errors occur, "Pass" will appear.
If errors do occur, they will be counted. Therefore, errors can be identified without finishing the process.
[ Effective indications ]
Tray sometimes does not open, discs sometimes are not recognized, discs sometime do not playback, (When indications are related to discs, implment on the type of disc which has been pointed out. If it is the disc on which the indications occurred, possibility of reoccurrence is higher.)
Jitter Measure / BLER Measure
[ Content of test ]
Measures the Jitter or the Block Error Rate (BLER) of the disc inserted.
Only Pass or NG will be displayed, not Measurement values.
All of CD, DVD, and BD can be judged.
[ Instructions ]
1 Select "[7] Enter SP Mode" with the DOWN  button from the Service Mode screen, and press the [ENTER] button.
2 The SP Mode window menu will be displayed, so select either "Jitter Measure" "BLER Measure," and press the [ENTER] button.
3 The tray will automatically open and the dedicated screen will appear. Place the disc you wish to use on the tray, and push it in manually. ([Close] button will not function)
4 The tray will reopen automatically. Measurement will start when you push the tray in manually.
5 When test is completed, "Pass" or "NG" is displayed.
[ Effective indications ]
Defect related to playback (blocked noise, sound jumping, image jumping, disc is paused, freeze of screen etc.) If an NG is generated in a specific disc only, the defect is likely to be caused by the disc. If an NG is generated in other discs too, the defect is likely to be caused by the drive part. However, even if Pass is displayed after this test, it is difficult to determine that the Driver is normal with these Pass judgments only.
