Can SPN4235 Support Blu Ray Signals?

I really want to buy a Blu Ray disc player but some things I've read suggest that my set may not be able to imput the signal fro a Blu Ray.

It does not have a HDMI imput and I'm not sure if I can hook it up any other way.

Can anyone help me out?

After I got over my fustration I did a little more reading and discovered that I could use purchase a
HDMI to DVI converter cable. Since DVI, unlike HDMI, is video only I also had to purchase a digital optical (it also carries audio) cable to get sound. It cost me an additional $70 for the two cables but it was worth it. I reasonably happy with the 1080i resolution which is all my SPN4235 is capable of at least until I can afford a new 60" HD Plasma TV.

Sony BDP-BX2 Blu Ray player won't read disc. Do i need to update the firm ware? or something?


The latest update version is .008. Yes, you most likely need to do this. I have done two update so far. Ver. .006 and .008. Both times this solved my disc problem. On one of my disc for the newest version, I put the disc in and it could not read it. I was really surprise and put in back in again and it played. I've come to the conclusion that many disc pressing are not very good and some of the Blu-ray players are more finicky about reading that bad pressing. Exchanging the disc for another sometimes works.

Cant read the discs,dvd,cd or blu ray, "no disc"


You need to purchase a dvd disc cleaner or buy a can of air from wal-mart and spray out the drawer and the inside of the player with the drawer open,the eye of the dvd player is probably dusty and can't read the disc...and make sure the dvd is clean with no finger prints on it.

My samsung bdp1000 will not play some discs


Hey chazh,

If you have been having difficulty playing some discs in your Blu-ray player, there are a couple of things that I would suggest.

First, you may wish to try cleaning the inoperable discs using a soft, lint-free (typically microfiber) cloth. Sometimes dirt or lint can build up on the underside of a disc, preventing it from being read or recognized by an optical drive. When cleaning any disc, remember to use gentle, outward strokes from the center of the disc towards the outer edge.

Secondly, you may wish to try cleaning the Blu-ray player's lens itself. Similar to CD's and DVD's, contaminants on the lens of any optical device can prevent it from being able to read discs. Many retailers (including your local Best Buy™ store) may sell DVD cleaning kits, which can be inserted into the player much like a DVD or other media title.

Should cleaning the discs and player's lens fail to resolve the problem, you may wish to contact Samsung directly for further assistance. While dusty media may be one of the most common reasons why a disc would not play, you could also potentially be encountering format compatibility issues or even a manufacturer's defect (such as a lens that is out of alignment).

If you do not feel comfortable working with the manufacturer, remember that you may always bring your player into your local Best Buy™ store for service and repairs.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

No Disc error message


I just had to send mine in for the same reason...support suggested a firmware update....i did what they suggested and it didn't work...wouldn't read the update disc....I just mailed my player to sony this morning.....call support and get a workorder to send it to Sony for repair......their service is less than optimal because the consumer has to pay to send it the player for repair...unless you live in the Mount Pleasant, PA area....My guess is that they are going to send me a refurbished player that works....not the same unit that I sent them because they had me send back all accessories, etc. I won't buy another sony again....their service sucks.

Will not play blu-ray disc's


Are you able to play other discs on your player? Did you get your discs from a reputable distributor? and not at a flee market? Could be that your discs aren't giving the proper signals.
