    Somebody help!
    I bought a region-free blu-ray player.
    sony bdp-s1700.

    However, I can select only OSD languages Eng, Fr, Spa, polt.
    From the menu for the usual system setting, I can not change it except these languages.
    I absolutely want to make the OSD language Japanese.
    Actually, in Japan there is a store that sells the USA version s1700 by modifying it to Japanese specification.
    I am certain that there is a way to change.
    I think there is a solution to something.
    But I could not find it.
    Does anyone know the tricks?

    Even if it is difficult, it does not matter. Please tell me
    The OSD language is important.

    try unplugging the bluray player from the wall and leave it set for a few minutes
    then plug it back up and see if it asks you to set up the osd language .

    if that doesn't work you can try pressing the system setup menu and try there.

    Why the certainty? Just because you want it, doesnt make it so. It is easy to think of a manufacturer only embedding the languages needed for a market segment (e.g. target country). So if the seller modified a model for the European market, then the OSD languages will reflect that.
    I expect the OSD languages to be part of the firmware. So if the player is firmware upgradable while keeping its region free status, then a Japanese firmware may help you, if it exists for that model player. (It may be that the s1700 is only sold outside of Japan, and no firmware with Japanese exists.)
