Step 2. Checking the latest firmware version available for your Blu-ray Disc™ Player

Confirm the latest firmware version that is available for "the Model Number of your Blu-ray Disc™ Player" by referring the "Update Information" section provided above (near the top of this page).

Please compare this firmware version number to the version number of the firmware currently installed in your Panasonic Blu-ray Disc™ Player (the firmware currently installed in your Panasonic Blu-ray Disc™ Player was checked in "Step 1").
