Fortunately I've never seen this on mine, but there's some evidence out in Google land that the player has (for unknown reasons) lost it's configuration data and is displaying the fact that it's at the "root" of the configuration menu.

If you press the setup button on the remote (called System Menu on mine), can you enter the configuration menu?
