    Updated firmware an hour ago. Dark Knight still doesn't work. Batman Begins barely works. Wonks at Samsung are no help. What to do?

    Samsung said nothing they can do until next frimware is released. Last frmware was 12/24/08, I will be waiting awhile to watch this...

    I have contacted samsung many times and being told something new each time. They can't say that the dark knight won't play on firmware version 2.0, but it doesn't. They offer repair and the offer the same firmware that is already released. They have offered to send me the firmware release I have already loaded. I have been told 2.1 comes out January 11th (this is February 2nd). This has been a fiasco...

Using a BD-P1400, I rented Dark Knight at BBuster and it seemed to hang up on title 4 (the beggining of the movie) so I called and they said I needed to upgrade my firmware so I plugged in the ethernet LAN cable and installed the Dec 08 version. I took it back, tried another and seemed the same, I see the federal warning then Warner emblem then at title 4 it looks to be searching as a disc spins on screen and so I thought 'same ****, must be the player doesn't play this movie as it plays any others I recently bought like Wall-E'. So I went to the fabulous net and googled and got this forum, meanwhile I could hear something playing in the family room- peeked around the corner and there was The Joker at start of movie...IT WORKS FINE....so 'Patience IS a virtue in BluRay....
Life's all better now.

Download ver 2.0 dated 12/24/2008 at samsung.com, unzip, burn image, update, rock and roll. It may take awhile to update.

Maybe your Blu-Ray doesn't support 3D selection for this particular title. Double check that the blu-ray is actually recorded in 3D and available for you to choose.

New Sharp BD-HP16U won't play Blu Ray Discs


You need to force the player to the the Top Menu of the disc.
The way to do this is: load disc, wait until it says "Reading Completed" (about 1 minute).

Wait for the PLAY icon ">" to show in the upper right corner (this may take up to 30-40 secs).

Once you see the ">" Hit the STOP button on the remote to get to the player's splash screen.

From the Sharp splash screen Hit the "Top Menu/Title List" button on the remote and wait for the circulating dots and then the disc menu appears.
Play the movie from the menu and you should be good to go.

Will not play Blue Ray DVD


I had the same problem. Try this. Contact Sharp and have them email you the firmware update. You will need to download it from the email and transfer it to the player via a flash drive. See if that works. I am about to return my Sharp Blu Ray player to Costco and go back to DVD. There seem to be a lot of problems with the technology. Even when movies start to play, they have freezes and it is sometimes hard to get the menu to show up

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.

Appears to turn it's self off,or freeze and go dark.


Go to http://www.samsung.com/us/support/download/supportDown.do?group=&type=&subtype=&model_nm=BD-P1400&language=&cate_type=all&dType=D&mType=FM&vType=&prd_ia_cd=03020100&disp_nm=BD-P1400&model_cd=&menu=download
you have to burn it to a CDROM as an image file, if you just drop it on a CDROM as is, it won't work. Insert it in the player and follow the menu to update the firmware. Takes 30 minutes in 2 steps of 15 minutes each.
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.
