Question about Televison & Video
I have a netflix account and went to the website on my laptop. It asks for an activation code for "devices." I'm assuming I need one for my blu ray player. I don't have one. I looked all through settings to try to find one. I called tech support and they had me unplug the blu ray player to "reset it." I did that. Nothing changed.
The latest software update from magnavox has caused their blueray players to not play netflix.
The technician I talked to couldn't fix it and admitted their latest update has a bug that won't let netflix play.
They refused to let me load the previous version that would let netflix play !!!!!
Believe me I will think twice before ever buying a magnavox product ever again !!!

SOURCE: Black Bars on all blu ray movies
Having black bars displayed when watching a Blu-Ray disc is a common occurrence, even with a widescreen television.
You may have heard or seen aspect ratios of 4:3 or 16:9. 4:3 is the ratio of a traditional television that is nearly square. 16:9 is the ratio of most widescreen televisions currently marketed. The reason that even with a 16:9 television Blu-Ray discs are displaying black bars is that many of these discs contain footage that has not been reformatted for television. The screen in a movie theater is even wider than 16:9, and rather than trim the ends, most Blu-Ray discs maintain the entire picture.
Depending on the options available in your particular television, you may be able to find a zoom setting that trims the ends and removes the black bars. It is up to you if you would rather see black bars with the entire picture or lose a small amount of the picture on each side for a full-screen experience.
Hope this helps,

I had the exact same problem as you did... I bought the Sharp Aquos 42D85X which came with Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-ray Disc player. could not get brand new blu-ray movies to play and i found it froze everytime after 10 secs. I phoned sharp who basically were no help watsoever! I then went and returned my blu-ray movies back to the store thinking it was a problem with the discs.. The people there were extremely nice and since they had a display model of the BD-HP21X instore they offered to test the movie on it to veroify whether it was the blu-ray player was the problem or not. Turns out its a fault with all of the BD-HP21X models. So we then ended up returning it back to the store we bought it and exchanged it with the older model (BD-HP20X). I now have no problems playing blu-ray movies. Although another suggestion is to perhaps download the lastest firmware update & see if that resolves your issues.

check with different Blu-ray discs and DVD discs. If the issue occurs only with some discs, then try updating the Firmware for the Blu-ray Player which should resolve the issue. Contact the Sony support team to get more information about the Firmware update for the Player.
