New Sharp BD-HP16U won't play Blu Ray Discs

It plays regular DVD's, but when I put in a newly rented Blu Ray dis (The Day the Earth Stood Still and Casino Royale), the menu screen comes on the TV, but when I press PLAY on the remote or on the player itself, nothing happens. Can't get it to play. Sharp BDHP16U Blu-Ray Player does not play the blu ray movie "The Lake Cabin" It says the disk is loaded but does not get to a menu or start playing. If I press the play button it says can't operate. I did update the firmware and was then able to play Bride Wars however The Lake Cabin still does not play. Bride Wars did take about 3-4 minutes to load. Any Help would be appreciated. Thanks, Davce

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.

There may be a issue with the assembly, blu-ray plays with more precision and speed, for some reason it is not slowing down to play the regular DVD's may be a padder motor problem.

My Samsung BD-P1600 will play a SD disc but the rental Bluray discs won't play. Is there any way to reset the player? THX.


It is not the player you need to reset, it is the rental DVD's. They are encrypted with a code to limit the amount of time they can be watched, thereby protecting them from being stolen or not returned. Send them back to the rental company and rent the same movies again. That is your only solution. Your player will play whatever is put into it. I hope this helps.

I tried to play the Casino Royale Blu Ray disc. Disc reads and plays the included promotions for other movies. When I get to the opening screen for the actual feature, none of the buttons on the remote...


so long as its not a burned disc, in which the copyrights may have not transfered, it should work. However, try another blu-raydisc in player, if that works, its is the format of the disc. ask someone you know if they have the casino royale blu-ray and try their copy. try to isolate the issue as to the disc or player, if its the player, then contact the mfg. tech support.

Occasionaly a wide screen dvd plays only in full screen


The aspect ratio on your DVD player is not set correctly. Look for a SETUP button on the remote control, there should be something like "QUICK SETUP" or something similar on the setup menu, if not then go to the menu that has the aspect ratio settings listed. Change your aspect ratio to 16:9 WIDESCREEN, and this should solve your problem. Your aspect ratio is 4:3 which is for a regular TV, if the images (especially people) look real skinny and tall on your TV then your aspect ratio is not properly set. Good luck to you!

Blu-ray discs all of the sudden incompatible and won't play


Look for a firmware upgrade for your player. They exist for sole purpose of increasing compatibility with newer blu ray releases. If that does not do the trick it appears that your player's laser assembly is losing its ability to focus on the disk(s). Repair is not cost effective and you will have to go shopping.

BD-HP21U problems playing discs


You have inadvertently downloaded the US (or other region) version of the firmware. Unfortunately if you try and download the UK version the HP21 just tells you you have already installed it. I was told mine the only way to reset it is for it to be sent to Sharp or you can wait for a new firmware update.
