Help! I can’t get a Blu-ray movie playing on my CDTV

My Blu-ray player is upstairs in the bedroom. For the sake of convenance I wanted to watch a Blu-ray movie downstairs so plopped it into my CDTV. That device is already connected to the downstairs Tele. But I git nothing, nanda. To make sure the CD-ROM Drive is not busted I put in a Depeche Mode CD and it played fine. What am I doing wrong? I hope I don’t have to dig the CD32 out of the closet with FMV module because I don’t know where the power supply is.

Any help would be appricated, thanx.

You forgot to connect it to WLAN, so latest KS Updates containing bluelaser.device wasn't installed

Have you tried cleaning the laser? Also test with a 3D 4K Blu-ray disc.

Its only 1x cdrom in CDTV, bluray needs 2x 300k to get the 30mbit/sec required to play Frozen in 3D, try a CD32 or buy a 2x cd drive on ebay, any cheap one from china will do.

I'm thinking maybe you just have the disc upside down, did you try both ways?

As a seasoned spacecraft engineer used to getting recalcitrant hardware working in deep space, I'd suggest you apply some of our cutting edge recovery techniques and turn it off and on again.

I assume you used the CD caddy which is an easy mistake to make as you need to get a very rare blu-ray caddy.

It's pretty clear to me. After having you're CDTV introduced to the best band in the universe (DM), it doesn't accept anything else anymore...

To save anyone else a heart attack, if you're browsing eBay at work and get it in your head to search for a CDTV, whatever you do make sure you search for "Commodore CDTV". I've never closed a page so quickly.

Sorry to hear about that Pyromania.
That is a known problem.
It has to do with a bad Rockwell Turbo Encabulator chip...
I think it's almost impossible to source those tho...
There's some good vids on youtube about the encabulator tho, if you want more information.

Check the lens fluid, the gonkulator & merkel jammers - commonly overlooked.

Check the voltages from the power supply. As someone else suggested the machine may also need to be recapped.

Also make sure you are not using a bad crack of your movie playing software.
