SOURCE: Unit plays DVD but no longer Blu Rays

That is because of a dirty or defective lens. When lens is dirty, the unit may still operate on regular CDs and DVDs and not be reading BD.

Try first using a lens cleaner for Blue Ray: Maxell 190054 Blu-Ray Lens Cleaner

If that does not work, the unit may be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

Clean DVD lens, or replace player?

Clean CD or DVD ROM lens with a brush?

Being this a blue ray unit , I would suggest calling support instead of disassembling the unit by yourself.

SOURCE: Blu-Ray player not reading Blu-Ray movie

I had the same problem - Fix - Go to the sharp web site and download the file HP21U_HP50U_PN902270. You will need to make sure your thumb drive is no bigger than 4gb and you do not have any other files on it. Once you download the file on the thumb drive, you will need to unzip the file on the same thumb drive. The zip file is one of the new ones, so you might need to go to the web and get a shareware program that will open it. After this - turn your player on and go to setting, next scroll down to update firmware, insert the drive and tell it OK, it will ask you if this is OK, tell it OK and it will upgrade the firmware in about 2 min. I have already done this with 3 other players with no problem. Good luck. The sharp web site is sometimes a little hard to find and to me was not the most user friendly. good luck

SOURCE: no read blu ray disk

Look to see if your system came with a blu-ray dvd player. Cause according to the specs to your sysem it comes with a dvd+-rw drive which means it can play original dvds as well as movies on a dvd+r and dvd-r. Look for the blu-ray logo on the front of your drive. It should look like this:

If it doesn't have that logo then that means your drive can't play blu-ray. If it does have the blu-ray logo and its not playing those discs then you need either a software program that will play blu-ray or your blu-ray dvd player has a weak laser and the drive would nee to be replaced.

SOURCE: I have a sharp bd-hp21u model blu-ray disc player.

Verify version of the firmware, if it is older then PN9062300, you will have to upgrade it. Newer version of the firmware can be found here. For instruction on upgrade procedure refer to the owner's manual.

SOURCE: My Blu-ray keeps saying no disc.

This can be caused by a number of different things, some simple ones are:

- Unplug for 5 minutes then replug, this will reset the processor and it may smarten up (just like rebooting a computer)

- Take the unit apart and using a Q-tip and lens cleaner gently clean off the lens of the laser...only do this is you feel comfortable. If there is a hair or obstruction on the lens it will not read discs. If it is still under warranty, send it in first before you take it apart, it may void warranty.

- If the above two do not work then the transport mechanism may be defective and the repair would be around 100 -150 dollars, which is probably not worth repairing and it is best to look at a replacement machine.

Hope this helps!

Blu-ray vs HD DVD: State of the Belonging

Well, as far as HD DVD vs.Blu-ray goes, it looks like we've pretty much passed the point of no returnnow; with each passing day it seems less and less likely that a compromise willbe reached on a next-gen format. The ongoing peace talks between the two camps,which have been on-gain, off-gain for months now, seem to have finallydissolved. It's disappointing, but however you feel about the fact that the HDDVD and Blu-ray factions squandered countless chances to make it right and cometogether, it looks like in just a few short months they're going to be dukingit out <i>mano a mano</i> right in our livingrooms. There may not be a lot wecan do to fight back - apart from refusing to adopt either format out of sheerspite of their pigheadedness - but no matter what we might as well at least armourselves with the knowledge necessary to understand the nature of thesituation at hand. HD-DVD is now officially discontinued. However,information on HD-DVD, and its comparison to Blu-ray, is still contained inthis article for historical purposes, as well as the fact that there are stillmany HD-DVD player owners, and HD-DVD players and discs will continue to besold and traded on the secondary market for some time. In fact the <span><a href="">differencebetween blu-ray and hd dvd</a> is apparent.</span> <b>The Current StateOf DVD</b> DVD isvery successful, and will definitely be around for some time. However as it isimplemented, DVD is not a high-definition format. DVD players typically outputvideo in either standard NTSC 480i (720x480 pixels in an interlaced scanformat), with progressive scan DVD players capable of outputting DVD video in480p (720x480 pixels displayed in a progressively scanned format). Although DVDhas superior resolution and image quality, when compared to VHS and standardcable television, it is still only half the resolution of HDTV. <b>Blu-ray and HD-DVD Format Information</b> However, there is a catch with regards to highdefinition DVD recording and playback; up until 2008, there has been twocompeting formats that were incompatible with each other. <b>Blu-ray Format Support</b> Blu-ray is supported on the hardware side byApple, Denon, Hitachi,LG, Matsushita (Panasonic), Pioneer, Philips, Samsung (also supports HD-DVD),Sharp, Sony, and Thomson (Note: Thomson also supported HD-DVD). On the software side, Blu-ray issupported by Lions Gate, MGM, Miramax, Twentieth Century Fox, Walt Disney Studios,New Line, and Warner. However, as the result of the discontinuation of HD-DVD,Universal, Paramount,and Dreamworks are now on board with Blu-ray. <b>HD-DVD Format Support</b> HD-DVD has been supported onthe hardware side by NEC, Onkyo, Samsung (also supports Blu-ray) Sanyo, Thomson(Note: Thomson also supported Blu-ray), and Toshiba. On the software side, HD-DVD has beensupported by BCI, Dreamworks, Paramount Pictures, Studio Canal,and Universal Pictures, and Warner (only until May 2008 - at which time it willbe Blu-ray exclusive). Microsoft had also lent its support to HD-DVD, but nolonger, as Toshiba has ended HD-DVD support.
