Remove the face plate by depressing the small plastic tab
  • Remove the face plate by depressing the small plastic tab

    • *NOTE: eject disk tray first before dis-assembly to gain access.

For my BDP-S185, there was a steel wire spring running through both the face plate and tray that came dislodged. I could not put it back in place, and two plastic tabs on the face plate broke. More detailed pictures of this step and the fine parts involved in the face plate to disk tray latching mechanism would be useful.

Hi! I have just a quick question! The front display panel of my Sony Blu Ray player had broken! The small board with the USB mounted onto it, remote sensor and buttons! What is the name of this board? I was looking to order a replacement
