My BD HP20 will not play most new Blu Ray disc. I understand it needs to be updated. Is there some thing I can buy to do the update ?

You need a USB flash drive (FAT format); in my experience even less than 1G drives are sufficient. Download the firmware update to your computer from the site:
(You'll need to fill in the drop down menus) The file is a .zip and must be extracted to the root directory of the USB drive. Then safely eject the drive from the computer (to ensure that the write step is finished). Plug the drive into the player (port marked Service) and go through the setup menus. Setup > Settings > Software Update (you need a password so it will ask you for one if not already set). Click Enter and the file on the drive will be compared to the current installed firmware. Then press Yes to install and wait for it to finish. If errors occur try removing and reinserting the drive. When done, remove the flash drive.

I hope this helps.

(some TV repair shops may have the flash drives available but you'd probably have to pay for a service call to get a technician and the drive.)

I have a Sharp BD-Hp20 and i already got the firmware update and still cannot watch Avatar Bluray please help.

Make sure that you do have Version HU9071500 installed--->press setup button------>settings-------> version. If it is installed then after you insert Avatar it takes between 8 and 10 minutes before you can select play movie.
