Your firmware may already be up to date. If the version number is M21.R.0180 or higher, you do not need to update.

If you're not sure, it's easy to check which version of firmware you have:

  1. Turn on your TV and check it's tuned to the input your BDV-N9200WL/N9200W/N7200W/N5200W is connected to, so if the BDV-N9200WL/N9200W/N7200W/N5200W is connected to the HDMI 2 port, choose HDMI 2 as the input
  2. Turn on the BDV-N9200WL/N9200W/N7200W/N5200W
  3. Press the "FUNCTION" button repeatedly until "BD/DVD" function appears in the front panel display
  4. If it starts to play a disc, press HOME and wait until you see the XrossMediaBar (XMB) menu screen
  5. At the XrossMediaBar, highlight Setup > System Settings then select ENTER using the arrow keys on the remote control
  6. Highlight System Information on the display and press the ENTER key
  7. On the TV screen, the firmware version number looks like this:
    Software Version M21.R.0180 — if the version number is M21.R.0180 or higher, you already have the most recent firmware version.
