Question about Samsung BD-P1000

1 Answer

Some DVD's play. Others don't

My Samsung BD-P1000 blu-ray disc player is a European version.

Some blu-ray DVD's play. Others don't. The one that don't play begin with a slide show -- language selection, producer's logo, copyright warning -- and then a "loading" message appears. But after about 20 seconds, the loading message goes off, and the screen is blank. Access to the disc menu is denied when I press the "disc menu" button on the remote. The display on the unit reads "slide show" in a continuous crawl. It's as if the disc is stuck on the slide show and cannot transfer to the disc menu and the movie. ("Scene selection" access is also denied.)

I have a Philips HDMI compatible plasma TV.

Discs that play: Blood Diamond, Wall-E, Australia, Quantum of Solace, and Mongol.
Discs that don't play: Cloverfield, Madagascar 2, The Godfather.
(All are European format blu-ray discs purchased at the loca video store here in Holland.)

    The firmware updates offered are only for US and Canada versions of the BD-P1000. Do you know where I can find firmware for a European version?

    Try upgrading with this US version. It must work for your euro model too.

Why does my samsung Blue Ray DVD player load to the menu but wont play the movie


Hello,

Just need to verify if your trying to play a Bluray Disc or regular DVD?

If Bluray Disc:
All you need to do is to check on the FW version of you BD player. Go to Set-up > System > System Information. SW will be the FW version info. Please be informed that the latest FW version is v2.12. If it will not resolved the concern, try to verify if its happening to all of your Bluray Disc.

Sincerely yours,
Genius 101

My BD-P1500 will not recognise a new non-blu-ray disc.


If its not a Blu-Ray disc, it wont have new technology that the Blu-Ray does not have installed so its unlikely a firmware update wil fix this as its generally for new Blu-Rays.

Does the disc playback in another player?

Is it the correct region code?

Do all other DVD-Video play ok?

BLue ray DVD player


I am not sure about the Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc Player: But the Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-Ray Disc Player requires HDMI cable
to give the best resolution (1080p) possible that the TV set is able
to support. Hope this helps.

I have a Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-Ray Disc Player that will not play Blu-Ray discs rented from BlockBusters in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. To Date, of all my 100 regular DVD, and approximately 25 owned Blu-Ray...


BD-P1000 Update Solution
The solution that worked for me: I went to www.samsung.com/ca and downloaded the Samsung BD-P1000 player's firmware update to my desktop. When opened, I was directed to"burn" a DVD on my computer. I then inserted the new DVD in my Blu-Ray player. The player automatically checked and confirmed player model number and registration and uploaded information from the DVD and the update was complete. The BD-P1000 then flawlessly played the rented Blu-Ray disc of "The Scorpion King".
Thank You Samsung!
