Samsung BD-P1000 - tray not moving after firmware update

Let me preface by saying I am a computer tech so this is REALLY bugging me! :)
I ran the firmware upate per the instructions and it hung during the last part. I left it that way for several hours ot make sure I gave it a fair chance. Now the tray will not open or close. When it was closed, the display would read eject but nothing happened. I opened it up, removed the disc, still nothing. I turned the wheel to manually eject the tray, put it back together and turned it on. The display reads "loading" so it knows where the tray is, but nothing moves. I verified that the belt is fine and works. There was no issues before the firmware update and of course it is out of warranty. I do not see any CMOS jumpers or dip switches. If someone could tell me how to reset this I would really appreciate it. Thanks guys and gals!

If you have a LAN line, you can hook it into your player. Then just go into the user menu and find Updates and it will take care of it for you.

Every time I play Avatar in my samsung blu ray player bd-p1000 the screen on the dvd player says interactive but then it starts playing the opening credits and it wont go into menu mode, I can't do...

We have finally managed to get avatar to play!!!!! We had the same problem. Frustrating I know - but after returning the DVD back to the shop three times, trying updating previously, then waiting for another update from Samsung from Sept (they have not provided a further update) - we are feeling jubilant!

We copied the firmware to a CD disc once again. It did not initally look as if it was loading but if you wait you are asked if you if you want to upgrade eventually. Once you affirm - it takes a good five to ten minutes to process the firmware/ upgrade. It tells you when it has completed. We discovered by chance that you need to then switch off the player and switch back on again for the update to become functional.

Initally we still could not get AVATAR to load as far as the menu screen. We tried newer Blue Ray DVDs purchased December that previously would not play - and now do! To get AVATAR to play we switched off & on the blue ray player with the disc still loaded a couple of times and each time we got a little further towards the functioning menu screen.

A lot of messing around, so be sure you have the time available to persevere!

I have a Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-Ray Disc Player that will not play Blu-Ray discs rented from BlockBusters in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. To Date, of all my 100 regular DVD, and approximately 25 owned Blu-Ray...

BD-P1000 Update Solution
The solution that worked for me: I went to and downloaded the Samsung BD-P1000 player's firmware update to my desktop. When opened, I was directed to"burn" a DVD on my computer. I then inserted the new DVD in my Blu-Ray player. The player automatically checked and confirmed player model number and registration and uploaded information from the DVD and the update was complete. The BD-P1000 then flawlessly played the rented Blu-Ray disc of "The Scorpion King".
Thank You Samsung!
