Answer to "Why is my Blu Ray Player not booting up properly, how to fix it"First time asking for help?! That’s great, be sure to ALWAYS give the manfuacturer and model information of your device when asking for help online, probably why I’m the first one to respond. The helper community gets pretty tired of instructing people over and over again to : say WHAT they want help with exaclty, model, then problem, then what you’ve tried, then more details. Depending on the model / value of your player, it may not be worth it. Here’s the official repair support page for Sony (my heaping pile…): https://us.esupport.sony.com/support/s/s... I have a BDP-S6500, and it’s not worth a dime if I can’t fix it myself in 20 minutes. It’s been finnicky from the first. Junk I say! My next one will be an LG I think, haven’t tried them in a while… How I fixed mine most recently was use the “Troubleshooting Page” here: Sony BDP-S3700 Troubleshooting Which doesn’t come up on ifixit searches, but does on web searches, or you can navigate to the master page for the DBP-S3700, then click on...
Answer to "What has been your experience with 10.13.4 update on Legacy Macs"Hey Mayer! This reminds of the ongoing iPhone "Battery" replacement issues... how is it that the "battery" (hardware) needs replacement when these phones were fine until iOS 11 (software)? Conspiracy indeed... I've not gotten the fleet of legacy / upgraded macs I manage onto 10.13 yet, most are on 10.11, but now I think I'll upgrade with great caution. Perhaps do some Geekbench and BlackMagic and/or AJA System speed tests to see if I can find some insight into what Apple is doing here. Did you run HD read/write + processor tests in both scenarios? I'll report my findings when I do this (assuming I remember to come back here...), as now I'm interested in doing this as a test on a partition of one of the machines that will eventually get there... should be able to do this in the coming month. awfulapple!
