Open Question

Why won't this play blu-rays

I have this blu-ray player and it worked just fine, then after about a year it stopped reading blu-rays. Why is this? It still reads DVD's but not Blu-Rays. I tried to update it via the internet but it claims it has the most updated version

Same problem and until now no answers.
Living in Europ (Belgium) having a lot of American basketball video's who I cannot play.
You buy a very expensive Philips soundbar toghether with an even more expensive big flat Philips ambilight LED TV and it's imposible to feel you realy in the Boston Garden or at the LA Forum.
This s...s very much, I feel like Philips is shoplifting me.

Life of Pi blu ray won't start up. Plays 20th Fox Logo o.k. but won't start up


I have the same problem, tried it on 2 different (functioning) blu-ray players at home with the same result. Both are up to date with latest firmware but will not play this disc. Finally had to just watch the standard-def DVD version until I can solve this.

Netflix will not connect internet on vizio blueray player


see this steps and fix it. God bless you
    • 1 Reset the player if the device stops behaving normally. (Keep in mind that rotation sounds and picture issues during search are normal.) Select the "System" menu from the setup area and choose "Restore Factory Settings" or a similar option. Allow the device to restart and then try the disc again.
    • 2 Insert the disc face up in the tray. If playback fails to start or if it starts and then stops, wipe the disc with a soft cloth and try again. Throw out any heavily scratched discs that won't play.
    • 3 Change the "TV Aspect" to 16:9 in the setup area of the menu if the picture expands left and right or if the picture size is wrong and you're using an HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) cable.
    • 4 Set the wireless Internet router to automatically allow new devices to connect to it if the Insignia player won't connect to the Internet. The player uses only WPS to connect. Some routers that use different automatic setup protocols won't work.
    • 5 Make sure that the connection between the player and the television uses an HDMI cable if you're watching a Blu-ray movie. Some Blu-ray discs will only play over an HDMI connection. Also, remember that some Blu-ray discs won't work with PiP (Picture-in-Picture).

Vizio vbr210 error 11000404 How do I update firmware to watch newer blu ray movies?


I had the same problem -- we even returned the disc and got a new one. Go to the Vizio site and download the firmware for your player. Put it on a USB stick and plug it into the player. Follow the onscreen instructions (basically just press OK). The entire process takes less than 5 minutes from download to finish.

The Hunger Games works perfectly now.

Lg bd650 won't play blu-ray but everything else.


The laser pickup unit [optical pickup unit] to your Blu-ray player is faulty. It will be very difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. Contact the nearest authorised service center for LG to get it repaired.

It's something about the Burlesque dvd. I have the same problem with mine when I try and play it on my Sony blue-ray player. It's the only disc I have that it won't play. Disc is a DVD Video disc but it will no't play in the Sony player. It plays fine on other dvd players and my computer, but not on the Sony.

My BD300 which is just over a year old has stopped reading DVDs. It displays 'Reading' then 'Disc Error' and ejects them It still plays Blu ray


Hello
Just reset the player to its original factory settings and try. If the BIOS ic has confused with so many external commands, this type of problem will occur. By reset it to factory settings will clear the BIOS. To reset do the following.

Press and hold the POWER button for more than

five seconds. This will force the Player to power

off. Press the POWER button again to turn the
Player back on.

Unplug the power cord and then plug the power
cord again after more than five seconds
OK.
