Question about Samsung BD-P1500 Blu-Ray Player

1 Answer

Blu-ray disc stops at main menu

My husband and I purchased Igor today on Blu-Ray disc and when we put iti n to play it will play the initial preview for Horton Hears a Who but then when it gets to the main menu and you choose to play the movie it will not load. It makes a bubbling sound and starts to load but then goes right back to the main menu. Is there a solution to this or are we going to have to resort to purchasing this on regular DVD which is not what we want to do? Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is the only disc we have had any trouble with so far.

Thank you,

Cheryl Watson

SHARP BD-HP16U Cannot Play

Try this....
You need to force the player to the the Top Menu of the disc.
The way to do this is: load disc, wait until it says "Reading Completed" (about 1 minute).

Wait for the PLAY icon ">" to show in the upper right corner (this may take up to 30-40 secs).

Once you see the ">" Hit the STOP button on the remote to get to the player's splash screen.

From the Sharp splash screen Hit the "Top Menu/Title List" button on the remote and wait for the circulating dots and then the disc menu appears.
Play the movie from the menu and you should be good to go.

Quantum of solace, on blu ray, previews play fine, film wont

Do need the internet, just go into your settings tab on the intro menu for the PS3 and hit system update. Use the via internet option and it finds the newest version...2.70. Takes a bit to download but, when it's done you get to enjoy watching the otherwise $30 drink coaster.
