Keep getting a 0242 Error when attempting to play a Blu-ray disc

When I attempt to play a Blu-ray disc of Unstoppable I keep getting this error: BD-J Error Code 0242. It states that I must Update the Firmware. Yet I checked and according to the Blu-ray Player it is up-to- date. Any Ideas?

SOURCE: Firmware download for MAC

hey same problem here, but I just downloaded the CD version anyways... then dropped the .RUF file onto my desktop, selected it, burnt it to a CD-R (RW will also work) and popped it into the BD-P1500, so far it seems to be running along steadily in the update process... hope this solves your problem.

possibly because the regions are different to dvd than blu ray, there are 8-9 for Dvd and 3 for blu ray.

SOURCE: My BD-P1500 will not recognise a new non-blu-ray disc.

If its not a Blu-Ray disc, it wont have new technology that the Blu-Ray does not have installed so its unlikely a firmware update wil fix this as its generally for new Blu-Rays.

Does the disc playback in another player?

Is it the correct region code?

Do all other DVD-Video play ok?

Dvd player will not play dvd disc keeps saying cannot execute command


Some DVD players may display a Check Disc error.

Use a soft cloth to clean the disc; the disc may have fingerprints or smudges.
Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback.
If attempting to play a DVD-R, DVD-RW or other recordable DVD format, make sure the disc format is compatible with the DVD player. For more details

Blu ray disk wont play.


this could be a failure in the processing secttion of the card. since this is only months old it is important that you take this for warranty claims and get the immediate attention. It could be also expensive if it is out of warranty, possible failure of the proccs board.

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.
