Won't play a new blu-ray video

I purchased a new blu-ray video...wouldn't play so I returned it...still didn't play....returned it a third time and this time I was told that I need to update my blu-ray player. Is that what is required as the newer blu-ray movies can't be read on a SHARP that ia about a year old?

I bought a Sharp BD-HP20S and got Stargate Continuum to play on it, only problem was it wouldn't.
Had bad pixilation, jumping picture and stuttering sound.
Went onto Sharp's website and followed the instructions for downloading and burning a firmware update cd (or usb stick).
Made an update cd, put it in and within 5 minutes the update was over.
Result?
Prefect picture and sound.
Really simple and easy to do.
If you don't want to make a cd yourself Sharp will send one out to you if you contact them.

Vizio vbr210 error 11000404 How do I update firmware to watch newer blu ray movies?


I had the same problem -- we even returned the disc and got a new one. Go to the Vizio site and download the firmware for your player. Put it on a USB stick and plug it into the player. Follow the onscreen instructions (basically just press OK). The entire process takes less than 5 minutes from download to finish.

The Hunger Games works perfectly now.

Maybe the blu-ray/game part of your drive is failing, which won't read the sound properly. I had a drive that wouldn't read any audio, but did play the video.

Will play normal dvds but says any blu ray dvd is incompatible,brand new plaer only been used about 6 times to play movies .It worked fine last time it was used.


Return it to the seller. This unit is clearly faulty and does not perform as per manufacturers description.

You are within your rights to have this REPLACED rather than repaired.

If you are trying to play blue ray on this unit you are out of luck no amount of firmware will make it play something it is not capable of doing.

Samsung blu ray player


You can download the upgrade from the Samsung site. There are instructions for the entire process as well. Please note that you will need to create an ISO CD for the upgrade.

I have three blue- ray disc which will not play. Have return these disc several times to merchant for exchnage with no success.


Your firmware seems to be an older version. Since the discs that you are nameing are asking for Blu-Ray 1.2 support.
Samsung has provided updated firmware to support these discs. Follow the instructions on the link.
