SOURCE: Black Bars on all blu ray movies

Hi icmjrtdr,

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,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: I want to be able to play all my recorded dvds but get message

HI CHECK THESE Steps:
1. Remove the screws that hold the top case on the dvd player. There will be a couple of screws on each side of the player and a couple of smaller screws on the back. They will most often be BLUE RAY head screws.
2. Once the cover is removed, push the eject button to open the cd tray and get it out of your way. 
3. Unplug the player from the outlet.
4. Take the can of compressed air and blow out the entire inside of the case. Make sure to blow inside the carriage and around any moving parts of the dvd player including tracks, tray, gears, etc.
5. Check the inside of the carriage using a small flashlight and look closely to make sure there is not debris caught in the spindle or other places like hair, large clumps of dust, dirt, and anything else that should not be there. If you see this kind of material remove it with tweezers and repeat blowing out the inside.
6. Pour a small amount of the rubbing alcohol into the cap and lightly dip a cu-tip in it and shake off any excess. 
7. Now and clean off the optical lens (which will look like a small glass bubble in the middle of the carriage) with the cu-tip. Repeat this process a couple of times using a clean cu-tip each time.
8. Let air dry for 2 minutes before plugging the player back in and closing the tray.
9. Replace the cover and clean your discs before placing them back in the player. Test to see if the problem has been fixed.

You should clean your dvd player out at least once or twice a month for good preventative maintenance which will extend the life of your dvd player.

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.

How do I record content from the television and move it onto a usb so I can have it as a file on my computer?


Maybe you can try to use a DVD. It is easy to do. You just need to burn your televisions to a DVD, and then rip them into other PC. In this process, nothing will be lose.
And in this process, you may need two tools: DVD Creator and DVD Ripper. Leawo DVD Creator and Leawo DVD Ripper is nice choice. For more details about them, keep move to the official site below:

How can i control my tv, like the audio and power, with my controler samsung blu-ray bd-f5700


Hello.

You should be able to program your samsung blu-ray player's remote to work for your TV as long as it is a supported brand. I have attached a link to the manual for the AK59-00104R remote (the samsung blu-ray bdF5700 uses the slightly different AK59-00172A remote, but it should still work the same.) Just follow the directions in it to program your remote and you should have one that works for both your blu-ray player and TV. You can find the codes on pages 20 and 21 of the manual.

How do I connect my Samsung BD-E5400 blu ray player to tv and watch netflix with a wired internet connection?


From the modem to the blu-ray use an ETHERNET cable. From the blu-ray to TV use an HDMI cable. They only fit in the right terminals.

How can I connect a samsung bdf5900 to my hitachi rear projection tv


Your TV is probably older and has Component, Composite and DVI connectors. HDMI is a newer connector that integrates sound. If your RPTV does not have HDMI but DOES have DVI, you can get an HDMI to DVI adapter on eBay or a computer store pretty cheap. You will need another way to get the sound from the Blu-Ray player, either external speakers connected to the player, or stereo RCA cables from the player to the TV (there will be a set of RCA audio plugs with the TV's DVI port).
