If you contact Sharp via the website, you can order a firmware update cd from them, or download one from the website (CD or usb version) Follow the instructions and within 5 minutes your firmware will be updated.

I have a sharp bd-hp21u model blu-ray disc player. I am trying to use a brand new blu-ray disc. However, it will only play for 17 seconds and goes blank. What shd I do? It will play regualr dvd's.


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.

Chronicles of Narnia. Lion,witch,wardrobe blu-ray won't play


Updated firmware last night (for the Bd370) and the main movie disc for Chronicles of Narnia: Lion,witch,wardrobe worked (after previously stalling). However, the bonus disc still doesn't work when I play it (just a blank screen). I traded the Blue-ray DVD from where I bought it for another one, and it made no difference. However, both Narnia discs played okay in the store on a Sharp blue-ray DVD/Tv combo.

I can not see the movie of snow white in blu-ray a have a sharp bd-hp16u


Hello, we had the same problem with District 9. If your in uk you need to go to http://www.sharpelectronics.info/Software.aspx, select the sharp bd player make e.d. BDHP21H and select download to your desktop. If you not in uk go to the sharp web site relevant to your country. Once download is complete you need to extract files (they are zipped). In our case there were three files downloded, one being directions, the 2nd the actual software update and the 3rd something th do with version numbers. Once unzipped copy and paste the file ending in .RVP only to your usb/pen drive. Now insert the usb/pen drive into the bd player and follow the set up instructions. IN the case of our bd player (which is a different make to yours) we selected set up, software update and then just followed the directions from there. But probably best you follow the instructions given by sharp on thedownload.

Sharp Blu-Ray model BD-HP20X locked to region 4 how to unlock ?


Well I Checked my data resources and saw that there are no hacks or tricks for Sharp yet... the only thing you can try doing now is to ask your Dealership if they can unlock the regions for you. I've searched everywhere but couldn't find anything for newer models like HDDVD or Blu-Ray players.

Sorry T_T But let's hope someone might be able to help as well..

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 Pruitt43@yahoo.com

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.

Problem with Wall-e Blue Ray movie


i would say the problems comes from the way the company formatted the movie onto the blu ray discs. and i would say that there will most likely be a recall on them. if anything connect the manufacturer of the movie. hope this helps you.
