Question about Loewe Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a Loewe blutech blu ray player with a Loewe Spheros TV. The player is only a couple of months old but I have constant problems of it freezing during playback, skipping a section, or declaring BD discs incompatible on loading! The software version is shown as HL7103100 - is this the latest version / does it need upgrading? Having spent £800 on the player it's disappointing that it hasn't yet played a disc right through without crashing. Have emailed Loewe but no response.....

SOURCE: Incompatible Disc in Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-Ray Disc Player

I had the exact same problem as you did... I bought the Sharp Aquos 42D85X which came with Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-ray Disc player. could not get brand new blu-ray movies to play and i found it froze everytime after 10 secs. I phoned sharp who basically were no help watsoever! I then went and returned my blu-ray movies back to the store thinking it was a problem with the discs.. The people there were extremely nice and since they had a display model of the BD-HP21X instore they offered to test the movie on it to veroify whether it was the blu-ray player was the problem or not. Turns out its a fault with all of the BD-HP21X models. So we then ended up returning it back to the store we bought it and exchanged it with the older model (BD-HP20X). I now have no problems playing blu-ray movies. Although another suggestion is to perhaps download the lastest firmware update & see if that resolves your issues.

SOURCE: Sharp BD-HP20U Had been working fine,

I have the same problem. I started several months ago with brand new blueray disks. Now even disks that worked before, now come up as incompatible disks. I have tried contacting support thru their website and never getting a response. Not even the automated response about how blueray is always changing. No firmware upgrades since 10-29-08. I will never purchase any sharp products again. And I would advise anyone considering it, dont. What a waste of money.

SOURCE: for avatar how fix samsung bd c5500c blu-ray

If this is a Blu Ray Disk then your unit needs a firmware upgrade to be able to play the new Blu ray format. Contact Samsung for the upgrade file, burn to a DVD and run. The update will allow your unit play the new BR Format.

Please rate my help ++++Thanks for uisng FIXYA

Samsung bd-c6900 xaa dvd player freezes on 3d prometheus movie in same spot at scene 20


Report the error to Samsung support. There is an ongoing problem with the firmware. Make sure you have updated to the most recent firmware version 1025.0 that was released this month. There are still unresolved problems with the new firmware release though. Many movies will fail to load and other will load and play but will skip/freeze during playback. This is related to the anti-piracy features on the Blu-Ray that the player can not properly handle.

My Loewe Spheros plasma worked fine prior to a move to a new house. Upon powering it up about 2 mos. later.....the green light will come on and the usual "click" is heard, but no sound or image...


Can you confirm that you get no sound and picture? Apparently, these units, along with Panasonic & Hitachi units which are similar in design and use the ALiS panel from Hitachi/Fujitsu have a weakness in power supply. If yours has this problem, you should at least get sound.
My Spheros started acting up (no picture) after a move as well. If yours has the same problem as mine, you could opt to replace the power supply by a Loewe rep and pay $1500. I just use a hair dryer to get the picture going. Let me know if you need the details.
Good luck.

To transport a loewe spheros 42 plasma unit with rotating stand does the tv unit detach from the stand? I understand that the plasma tv should be transported in an upright position only is this true?


Yes, it should be transported in upright position.
When we moved, our moving company arranged a crating company to crate our Spheros unit. They built a crate around the TV and secured it in an upright position along with the rotating stand. They then put a tilt sensor (you get the serial number of the tilt sensor) to make sure that the moving people don't tilt the crate. They also un-crate it at your destination. The only problem is that the TV is already quite heavy to begin with (~180 lbs), and with the crate, it becomes almost impossible for the movers move it in perfect upright position....though our movers really tried hard.

On switching on the set - sound ok but no picture


Do you still have this problem? If so, let me know. It's mostly likely the power supply...actually one tiny $0.50 capacitor. I actually expected better from Loewe.

How to connect blue ray disc player to rca rear projection tv


Unfortunately, there are a couple potential problems. First of all, if you RCA rear projection tv is fairly old and is not a High Definition tv, you may not have an hdmi, dvi, or component connector cables inputs. Without these, you are left connecting your blu-ray only by the standard yellow (video), along with the audio (red and white) rca cables... either way, the High Definition portion of the blu-ray won't work with a non-High Definition tv. It may be time to buy an HD capable tv to use your blu-ray effectively...

New remote control unit.


You should try replacing the remote by buying a Logitech Harmony remote which you can then program to work your Xemix. It works really well for me. Alternatively if you can't get a dvd remote, try to get a TV control for a Loewe Xelos TV which has a DVD mode just for the Xemix dvd player.

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:
