    I tried to load the update with the USB and it won't recognize the file. It keeps saying there is no file on the USB. So, i bought another USB, same thing, then I re-downloaded the update from another site to see if it weould be different. Nope, can you suggest anything. Sharp didn't know why when I spoke to them?

    My Sharp Blue Ray will play previews but will not play movie

  • Anonymous Feb 22, 2009

    My Sharp only plays about half the Blueray discs I rent. I have updated the firmware to the latest. Seems bogus to me and is incredibly frustrating. I may be uninformed - but if this is how Blueray is then the technology should not have been released until it was standardized/stable.

    I HAVE DOWNLOADED THE FIRMWARE UPDATE FIVE TIMES ON TWO DIFFERENT USB MEMORY STICKS AND TOOK EVERYTHING ELESE OFF ONE OF THEM AND THE AQUAS BLUE RAY WILL NOT RECOGNIZE ANY OF THEM.

    On most of the Blue-Ray movies that I rent, my Blu-Ray Player has choppy video feed, and freezes VERY frequently for 5-10 seconds. VERY frustrating. I downloaded the latest firmware (from Feb 2009) and it didn't help. I'm very disappointed with sharp. I will never buy their product again !

    same darn problem! it will play previews beautifully and then quit at the menu. When we first got it (x-mas) it played most of the discs, stopping for a few seconds here and there--now, we've had to completely stop renting/buying anything blu-ray. Shame on SHARP!

  • the beast 52 Mar 26, 2009

    It will only play for 22 seconds & screen will go black

    DVD will load and read, but will not play. Checked other DVD and it will work fine.

    Does the upload atleast help?

  • wolf9653 Apr 06, 2009

    no, it's just a lousy product. updates don't make it better. I returned mine for service, all they did was 'update firmware' and return it as defective as before. to sell defective products, and back them up with defective service, is unacceptable. there are many complaints about this item. sharp needs to recall these things.

  • taranto Apr 17, 2009

    I had the same problem, just bought the stupid thing and went out and rented a movie and it wouldnt play the thing. So i went online and downloaded the newest update on a usb memory stick, updated it on the player and it finally worked...kind of...now i have picture and some sound but I cant hear the words...very frustrating for a new product

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

Go to sharps website and download updated firmware version for your model, then transfer the file to the blu ray using a usb mass storage device. I had to do that to mine it would not play new blu rays and i just bought the darn thing should've come updated. Good luck!
