Problem with Wall-e Blue Ray movie

I have a Samsung BD-P1400 Blue Ray DVD and the new Wall-e dvd on Blue Ray. The movie freezes for a few seconds, speeds up in other places, and the sound quits in other spots. I do not have any issues with any other blue ray movies including the new Batman movie and the New Narnia - Prince Caspian blue rays. I have returned the Wall-e movie for replacement three times, with similar results on each disk. At one point the movie froze and the only option was to turn the player off and re-insert the disk. I have upgraded the firmware, but the problem still exists. Has anyone else experienced problems with this movie on Blue Ray? Since I have this issue only with this movie I don't suspect the player. Any suggestions?

    I have a similar problem with both Wall-E and Tropic Thunder. They load then go to "slide show" mode.

    I'm having trouble with watching movies, particularly blue-ray rentals, that load and then turn into "slide show" mode. I have a Samsung BD-P1400 Blue-Ray Player

    I have same problem on my Samsung BD-P1400 when trying to watch certain movies, particularly rentals, that load and then stay in "slide show mode."

  • Hurky Dec 25, 2008

    When I've tried to watch rental movies on my BD-P1400 player, e.g. Wanted and Hell Boy II, they'd load and stay in "slide show" mode. I then inserted my own movies and they loaded and went into "slide show mode" briefly before playing in movie/playback mode.

    Freezes first with captains face on screen.  Returned 1 and now going for a refund as second copy has exactly the same problem.  Tried on a PS3 and Samsung BP1400, all latest firmware.

    Same issue, pretty random each time it's played. First half or so plays without problems, then starts happening. Also updated firmware to 2.0

    I have the same player with the same issue.  Even the firmware upgrade didn't fix it...that being said, I hear others are experiencing this from time to time with the PS3.

  • rembaldi Jan 14, 2009

    The new firmware update from Samsung does NOT fix the Wall*E issue.  I have the latest firmware upgrade and it plays the exact same way....*sigh*

    I am trying to watch a Hell Boy 2 rental from Hollywood Video. Keeps locking up and saying "Slide Show". Very frustrating.

    Same problem with Philips BDP7100.
    Philips was not aware of the problem, but they have no solution for the moment ...

    I had the same problem with Wall-E, even the Slide Show scroll instead of the time elapsed on the front of the player. I also had some freezing with TDK, using 2.0 firmware. It's getting to be very annoying trying to watch the new releases and waiting for glitches. Blu Ray, tho it looks good, is a pain.

    I have a Panasonic BD55, Wall-E freezes on this machine. All other discs seem to play OK.

  • Anonymous Feb 05, 2009

    it's a little better with the 2.0 firmware. but the problem still here

  • Anonymous Apr 20, 2009

    My Samsung BD-P1400 will not even load the Wall-e movie. I get an error message that ir cannot play the disk and it ejects it.

    I find the player to be VERY slow. Music is not played back at a good quality with HDMI or even PCM out.

    This is not a good player.

    My firmware is up to date and I must say I will nor buy another Samsung prodt after my experince with their poor quality of workmanship and support

  • Anonymous May 23, 2009

    Wall-e disc has to be loaded like 10 times in my BD-P1400...then it will boot. I had the same problem with Iron Man though. The latest firmware has been done three times. Still issues. Time for a new one! And not a Samsung. If they break or just don't work I aint buyin another one! Vote with your wallet. Why continue to support a company that built a failed machine and then doesn't want to help when it desn't perform. Buy a Sony.

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.

You can try upgrading the firmware at

I have to say though, after spending a year trying to get a 1400 to work, and multiple firmware upgrades on same, I gave up and bought a Panasonic BD35 which has been flawless on every movie.

It won't play salt blu ray movie? why

Download and manually update the firmware to version 2.4 for the BD-P1400 from the Samsung site. Burn the image (ISO) to a CD or CD-RW. It will take 20 minutes to do the update. The internet update will not fix the problem. It fixed the problem for me.

Plays dvd, but not blue ray bdp-1400

You could try and update your player's firmware from Samsung. Here is a link

You will need to download the firmware file and burn it to a cd-rom using your computer's cd burner then put it into the player. You will need to burn it in raw format and might need a burner program to do it. The player will need firmware upgrades often to be able to play the newer blu-ray movies.

Unstable at start up

I assume you have a wireless or Ethernet connection for your BDP1600? It may not be working and the first thing your player needs to do is get a firmware update and this won't happen if you do not have an Internet connection. If you do have an Internet connection, look to see if there is some sort of "software update" button somewhere within the tv-based menu system.

Samsung bd-p1400 will not play certain disks

My dark Knight DVD was only playing the first 4 screens and I burned the firmware upgrade to a CD. It took about 20 minutes from the time I inserted it for it to be complete, then it stopped at 4 again but took about 30 seconds and it began to play perfect.
