We just figured this out. We had already tried to update the firmware through the blu-ray device itself directly from the website. For some reason, that was not successful. We had to download the latest firmware from the samsung site onto our computer and then burn it onto a CD. Then we used the CD to load into the blu-ray and updated it's firmware to handle some newer movies we had purchased. It now is able to play the problematic movies. The samsung site has instructions for doing this. Good luck.

I could not burn to a cd, but was able to connect the player to my routor and it took almost 3/4 hour to complete the task. Once I did this I was able to view the movie. i had to change all the settings on the player again for viewing the movie. Thanks for the help

Blue ray will not play dvd but will play blue ray samsung db p1500


Blue ray uses a blue laser spectrum and DVD uses the red spectrum. The blueray player must have dual capability to play both red and blue spectrum discs. If it has been and is broken, contact the manufacturer for the 1 year warranty. If it has never played DVD then most likely its not compatible.

Won't load blue ray disc have upgraded to latest firmware and reset the player will play regular dvd but not blue ray, just started happening, used to play blue ray


The Laser Pickup Assembly is defective, to play blue ray it needs higher precision and velocity to produce the higher resolution, it is not cost effective for repair.

Why does my samsung Blue Ray DVD player load to the menu but wont play the movie


Hello,

Just need to verify if your trying to play a Bluray Disc or regular DVD?

If Bluray Disc:
All you need to do is to check on the FW version of you BD player. Go to Set-up > System > System Information. SW will be the FW version info. Please be informed that the latest FW version is v2.12. If it will not resolved the concern, try to verify if its happening to all of your Bluray Disc.

Sincerely yours,
Genius 101

Blue ray DVD disc doesn't load but other DVDs do load/play.


You may have to apply an update. There's a key used to decrypt the content on Blueray discs that changes from time to time in an attempt to thwart piracy. Updating involves visiting the manufacturer's(Samsung) website, downloading the update onto a USB stick, and starting the player with the USB stick inserted.
