Bluray uses a different laser than dvd/cd playback. You will need to have the deck replaced. Hope it's still under warranty.

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.

SOURCE: my samsung bd-p1500 blu-ray player won't play

I'm having the same problem. had my Blu-ray and my cable box plugged into my reciever. Blu-ray kept cutting out and not finding a signal while watching my Rome DVDs. I swapped HDMI cables by just switch which cable went out of my blu-ray ( I didn't change what ports they were plugged into on the reciever. That cleared up that problem. I'd assume it was a faulty HDMI cable except that it works fine on the cable box. Anyways, we were watching Iron Man on Blue-Ray and it starts to skip about 2 thirds through the movie. Same as you I updated the firmware, disabled BC-Live, No luck Don't know if the problem is hte Bluray player , the reciever or what. Everything is up to date so I don't get it at all.

My sharp blu ray player no longer plays blu rays


If it plays CDs and DVDs but not BluRays at all, then the blue laser is burned out. CDs and DVDs use a different laser. A needed firmware update would not prevent it from reading a BluRay.

Have a sumsung bdc 5900 player thats worked fine for 4 months but now when i put a blu ray disc it wont play but will dvds or cds


There is a problem in the laser pickup assembly, blu ray discs require a higher velocity and more precision to play than standard dvd's, if you still have warranty return the unit because there is nothing more can be done.

Blu ray discs freeze up after playing a few chapters, regular dvds play fine, player says it has the latest firmware available


Do the reset that is in the menu first. After completing that reset hold down the power button on the bluray player itself not the one on the remote until it displays reset on its screen.

My blue ray player will play regular movies but not Blue Ray DVDs. The player is brand new. This is second player. Same problem. I have two HDMI cables tried both. Also TV new Samsung.


Go to Samsung.com and download the latest firmware for your model player.

They have versions fot both burning to a cd/dvd or using a usb stick. The usb stick is the easier way to install it.

The firmware may need to be loaded twice for it to take effect.

Good Luck!

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 Clean the Laser Pickup Lens on your DVD Player


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.
