SOURCE: I have a Samsung BD-P1000

BD-P1000 Update Solution
The solution that worked for me: I went to www.samsung.com/ca and downloaded the Samsung BD-P1000 player's firmware update to my desktop. When opened, I was directed to"burn" a DVD on my computer. I then inserted the new DVD in my Blu-Ray player. The player automatically checked and confirmed player model number and registration and uploaded information from the DVD and the update was complete. The BD-P1000 then flawlessly played the rented Blu-Ray disc of "The Scorpion King".
Thank You Samsung!

SOURCE: Unit plays DVD but no longer Blu Rays

That is because of a dirty or defective lens. When lens is dirty, the unit may still operate on regular CDs and DVDs and not be reading BD.

Try first using a lens cleaner for Blue Ray: Maxell 190054 Blu-Ray Lens Cleaner

If that does not work, the unit may be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

How to safely clean a DVD lens?


Clean DVD lens, or replace player?


Clean CD or DVD ROM lens with a brush?


Cleaning your DVD drive


How to clean a DVD player


How do I clean my DVD player optical lens isoproponol alcohol

Being this a blue ray unit , I would suggest calling support instead of disassembling the unit by yourself.

SOURCE: Samsung Blu Ray 1500 model wont play any new discs

If you tried firmware update and it doesn't work and its less than a year from the date of purchased call Samsung customer service and claim for warranty . Panasonic has the same issue without explanation.

Hi have just bought a panasonic blu ray player model dmp-bd77 here in australia we have put in a b/ray dvd from the usa that plays perfectly but when we have put in another american dvd(not blu ray a...


Every blu ray or dvd player sold in the world comes as standard unlocked to play any disc from any region. On the fifth play of a disc the DVD or Bluray will become locked to that region. So if you play 5 USA dvd's on the player after the fifth disc has been played only US dvd's will be recognised by the player, Same applies to BLUrays. So if i were you i would be careful about what discs you are putting in the player. Otherwise you will be left with a bluray player that cannot be used in Australia. After that happens the only way to play other region discs would be to get the player unlocked. Another point to add , a blueray player has two lasers one to play bluray and another to play DVD's. Lasers can fail so you could be able to play DVD's but not Bluray or vice versa depending on which laser has failed.

We have a Panasonic Blu Ray player that for some reason won't play the blu ray discs only regular discs now???


It sounds like the bluray laser is worn out. Try cleaning the lens with a Blu-ray lens cleaner. If that dosen't help it might be the blu-ray laser it self. The laser is dead. If you are under warranty the call the manufacture for service. Shop around for current retail prices. Bluray players have gone down alot and it might be better to go ahead a buy a new player.

A new "Tangled" movie disc not play in Blu-Ray


As newer bluray movies come out they are constantly tweeking the format. More then likely you need to update your bluray players firmware or software. There should be an option under the menu for the bluray player to update the unit of course this will require that you have it hooked into the internet via ethernet cable or wifi network.

My Sony BDP-S370/BX37 does not play all the Bluray discs I have. For instance it will not play Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland but will play Disney's Sleeping Beauty and Coraline. What do I need to do?


In most cases, the issue might be with the Java contents on the new Blu-ray discs is making this issues. The Blu-ray technology is developing everyday and adding more and more features to the existing technology. Hence it is required to make the Blu-ray Player up-to-date by installing the latest firmware update available from the manufacturer (who ever it is). Going ahead with the first step, please install the latest firmware update available for the Blu-ray Player.


Please click the following link to get the latest firmware update available for your Blu-ray Player:


http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?upd_id=6237&mdl=BDPS370


You can review the "Important Notes" and "Firmware Update Instructions" on the page to get the instructions to install the firmware update.


If the issue persists after installing the firmware update, it would have been with the disc. Check the disc with another player; try different discs with same player.


If the Blu-ray Player is not at all playing any Blu-ray disc, then it may require service.

Won't load blue ray disc have upgraded to latest firmware and reset the player will play regular dvd but not blue ray, just started happening, used to play blue ray


The Laser Pickup Assembly is defective, to play blue ray it needs higher precision and velocity to produce the higher resolution, it is not cost effective for repair.

Won't play new blue ray disk


Will your machine play standard movie DVD discs? if it does then the laser pickup assembly is the problem. The blue ray discs require a higher precision tracking to offer better resolution.

Element EDBCO11 + Avatar = problem


Avatar bluray disc uses some super-new technique for copy-protection, which many players don't support yet. If you already upgraded to the latest firmware, you can only contact your dealer and ask them - or wait for even newer firmware.

My Magnavox bluray disc player NB500MG9 will not play bluray dvds. Please help


My Blu-Ray will not play x disc
A Blu-ray player can play DVD or CD and still not play Blu-ray. It may play Blu-ray but not CD or DVD, or burned discs. This is all caused by the 'optical' a part that reads the disc in the machine. Your player will need service as a Blu-ray optic cannot just be 'dropped' into a player.
