    can you tell us exactly the steps you did in test mode? I managed to change the destination J but when I got out of test mode did not show any change

    Thanks for responding. What happened in my case is that i accidentally pressed video out in service menu while trying to change the spset. This changed the destination to japan, turning the max volume a lot higher and the radio in japanese settings. It’s a common mulfunction and I wouldn’t care if the spset was off. It appears on though which makes me wonder which setting has changed to change the volume and if this affects the sound performance of the player.

    Do you have any idea if anything like that may be true? I guess not because that would mena that the player is factory set to disfunction in japan but then this wasn’t a normal change of destination settings.

    Do you have the destination tool needed or we have to contact sony? You have my email.

      unfortunately, I don’t have this tool and I’m not sure that Sony will provide it (it’s an internal tool)
      I couldn’t find it on the web neither.
