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,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

The latest firmware is version 1.3 If you do not already have that version I have supplied a link below that will allow you to download it.
This issue is typical with Blu-Ray... You will need to update your firmware frequently to keep up with the constant changes that are made when studios add new features to the disc's.
Check the link from time to time since this is where Samsung will post their new firmware downloads for your player.

Well I Checked my data resources and saw that there are no hacks or tricks for Sharp yet... the only thing you can try doing now is to ask your Dealership if they can unlock the regions for you. I've searched everywhere but couldn't find anything for newer models like HDDVD or Blu-Ray players.
Sorry T_T But let's hope someone might be able to help as well..

SOURCE: Unlocking of Samsung BD-P1500
I have a new BD-P1500, and after 5 Times
The trick seemed to be not holding the repeat key too long.
I have a Region B/4, running
I used the R4 code from below.
1) Turn on the player with no disc in the tray
Wait till the unit is at the Samsung logo screen.
2) Open then close the tray, wait to see the No-Disc Message in the top Left Corner
3) Now press the REPEAT button on the remote, followed by a five digit code.
In this case Repeat 76884
Now it to me about 5 tries to get this to work, It needed to be done without delay.
So if you don’t get it to work straight away don’t loose heart.
4) When it works a 4 will appear in the top left corner
5) Press 9 to make it regionless.
6) Press Eject to OPEN to open the disc tray.
7) Press Eject to CLOSE to close the disc tray.
8) Power the unit off
9) Now power the unit on again, it should now read all regions of DVD Disc.
From other threads I got the follow list of region codes.
R1 - 29334
R2 - 57538
R3 - 56732
R4 - 76884
R5 - 53814
R6 - 24462

Region code hack posted by wasgo, September 17 2008:
I have tried the hack mentioned above on my new BD-1500 and couldn't make it work. But the software in it is about a month newer.
Does anybody have any new ideas how to solve the problem?
I have the region 2 version (Sweden)
