My Sony BD GTV "Died on S/W Upgrade"

Has any one experienced their Sony BD Player stop booting after the S/W upgrade? Mine died within
couple of weeks of the main update. It tries to boot but hangs somewhere during the boot process.
I can tell this because TV brightness changes some.

died while in upgrade, or upgrade was ok? if it died weeks after upgrade it has nothing to do with "died on s/w upgrade"...

Mine did something crazy too but it happend right after the update. Somehow I managed to get it into some kind of mode by accident (recovery, bootloader, something). I did a quick Google search and found out that Ctr+Alt+Del works from the remote to reboot the player into normal mode. It kept booting to a blank black screen, ctr/alt/dell and it booted right back up normally. Dunno if this will help but it is def worth the 3 seconds it takes to press these 3 buttons.

now you can try root procedure to see if it helps you.
