Appears to turn it's self off,or freeze and go dark.

Frequently in the middle of playing a Blu-Ray the machine will turn its self
off. It has also done this on a no-Blu-Ray,but mainly it's a Blu-Ray problem.
It's as if the machine freezes.

you have to burn it to a CDROM as an image file, if you just drop it on a CDROM as is, it won't work. Insert it in the player and follow the menu to update the firmware. Takes 30 minutes in 2 steps of 15 minutes each.
I have to say though, after spending a year trying to get a 1400 to work, and multiple firmware upgrades on same, I gave up and bought a Panasonic BD35 which has been flawless on every movie.

Brand new, freezes at about same time while viewing. Changed movies but still freezes


The problem you describe is the stepping motor which turns a worm gear that guides the laser pickup assembly, if it freezes at the same time regardless ot the dvd you play, the worm gear is the problem, the machine should be taken back to the store for exchange.

Blu Ray player turns on, displays "Welcome on the screen. After disc is inserted, "Wait" appears on the the screen and then it freezes. What is wrong?


This sounds like your Sony player is not reading the disc.
I have bought faulty DVD discs before that have given this same fault!
- I assume you have tried a disc that you know works in another DVD player?
Remember, your Sony Blu-Ray should be able to play ALL REGIONS of standard format DVD discs, so you should get sound & images from any one you choose.

DVD plays audio but no video? The LG screens comes on but the screen goes dark and only the audio plays. I ran the disc cleaner.


NO NEED TO CLEAN LENS, YOU HAVE A MOTOR PROBLEM, IN THIS CASE YOU WILL BE ONLY ABLE TO PLAY AUDIO DISK AND NOT DVD. BECAUSE OF FREQUENTLY USED, DVD DISK MORE SPEED ROTATION THEN NORMAL CD, SO CHANGE YOUR MOTOR AND CHECK IT WILL WORK......

SAMSUNG BLUE RAY 7.1CH HT-BD2T doesnt play UNIVERSAL Blu Ray Movi


Greetings,
The latest firmware is version 1.3 If you do not already have that version I have supplied a link below that will allow you to download it.

This issue is typical with Blu-Ray... You will need to update your firmware frequently to keep up with the constant changes that are made when studios add new features to the disc's.

Check the link from time to time since this is where Samsung will post their new firmware downloads for your player.

Download ver 2.0 dated 12/24/2008 at samsung.com, unzip, burn image, update, rock and roll. It may take awhile to update.

Player suddenly freezes


Try running a dvd cleaner through it first, before trying anything else (the type that looks like a DVD with a brush underneath).

The regular DVD might have been a fluke (scratches, rental?, burned dvd?)

Was there anything special about the new Blu-Ray Disc - what was the tile? On certain titles, you may need the firmware upgrade found at:
