SOURCE: Player suddenly freezes

Try running a dvd cleaner through it first, before trying anything else (the type that looks like a DVD with a brush underneath).

The regular DVD might have been a fluke (scratches, rental?, burned dvd?)

Was there anything special about the new Blu-Ray Disc - what was the tile? On certain titles, you may need the firmware upgrade found at:

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!

Won't play 1080p discs?


From this problem's description I have to assume that either the blu ray player will not play blu rays or the blu ray player will play blu rays but only in 1080i/720p or that you want to know if this blu ray player supports the 1080p resolution.

If the blu ray player is not playing blu rays then you update the firmware and try multiple purchased discs to make sure nothing is wrong with the ones you have been trying. If blu rays that played once will no longer play, then you will need to reset the blu ray player from its menu and possibly by holding down the power button on the front of the unit until the word reset displays on the unit before trying to play the disc again.

If the television is not showing 1080p make sure you are connected with an hdmi cable and that it is the right version hdmi cable for this blu ray player and for your television. Make sure you have chosen 1080p as the resolution to display in the blu ray player's menu. If all of that has been done and 1080p will still not display then it is a case of incompatibility between manufacturers--Sharp and whatever the television is. It would display in 1080p on a Sharp television and most likely on a Samsung and Sony as well. With other brands and even some models of the aforementioned brands (except for Sharp) its a toss up.

Blu-ray vs HD DVD: State of the Belonging


Well, as far as HD DVD vs.Blu-ray goes, it looks like we've pretty much passed the point of no returnnow; with each passing day it seems less and less likely that a compromise willbe reached on a next-gen format. The ongoing peace talks between the two camps,which have been on-gain, off-gain for months now, seem to have finallydissolved. It's disappointing, but however you feel about the fact that the HDDVD and Blu-ray factions squandered countless chances to make it right and cometogether, it looks like in just a few short months they're going to be dukingit out <i>mano a mano</i> right in our livingrooms. There may not be a lot wecan do to fight back - apart from refusing to adopt either format out of sheerspite of their pigheadedness - but no matter what we might as well at least armourselves with the knowledge necessary to understand the nature of thesituation at hand. HD-DVD is now officially discontinued. However,information on HD-DVD, and its comparison to Blu-ray, is still contained inthis article for historical purposes, as well as the fact that there are stillmany HD-DVD player owners, and HD-DVD players and discs will continue to besold and traded on the secondary market for some time. In fact the <span><a href="http://www.rip-blu-ray-copy.com/resources/difference-between-blu-ray-and-hd-dvd.html">differencebetween blu-ray and hd dvd</a> is apparent.</span> <b>The Current StateOf DVD</b> DVD isvery successful, and will definitely be around for some time. However as it isimplemented, DVD is not a high-definition format. DVD players typically outputvideo in either standard NTSC 480i (720x480 pixels in an interlaced scanformat), with progressive scan DVD players capable of outputting DVD video in480p (720x480 pixels displayed in a progressively scanned format). Although DVDhas superior resolution and image quality, when compared to VHS and standardcable television, it is still only half the resolution of HDTV. <b>Blu-ray and HD-DVD Format Information</b> However, there is a catch with regards to highdefinition DVD recording and playback; up until 2008, there has been twocompeting formats that were incompatible with each other. <b>Blu-ray Format Support</b> Blu-ray is supported on the hardware side byApple, Denon, Hitachi,LG, Matsushita (Panasonic), Pioneer, Philips, Samsung (also supports HD-DVD),Sharp, Sony, and Thomson (Note: Thomson also supported HD-DVD). On the software side, Blu-ray issupported by Lions Gate, MGM, Miramax, Twentieth Century Fox, Walt Disney Studios,New Line, and Warner. However, as the result of the discontinuation of HD-DVD,Universal, Paramount,and Dreamworks are now on board with Blu-ray. <b>HD-DVD Format Support</b> HD-DVD has been supported onthe hardware side by NEC, Onkyo, Samsung (also supports Blu-ray) Sanyo, Thomson(Note: Thomson also supported Blu-ray), and Toshiba. On the software side, HD-DVD has beensupported by BCI, Dreamworks, Paramount Pictures, Studio Canal,and Universal Pictures, and Warner (only until May 2008 - at which time it willbe Blu-ray exclusive). Microsoft had also lent its support to HD-DVD, but nolonger, as Toshiba has ended HD-DVD support.

I know dvd player can not play Blu-ray but is not the Samsung dvd hd870 different. It reads 1080i.


That refers to the video output - your player is capable of upscaling: it transforms, without changing the quality of the image itself, the resolution from SD (480i) to HD (1080i).

Video resolution not supported, but the audio is playing


There should be a way to adjust the resolution on the DVD player, check on the front of the unit for a button that will turn it down to 480i, or anything less than what it is at. You may need to consult the manual, or hook it up to another TV so you can adjust the resolution, then re-attach it to this TV.

Mine wont play anything a DVD it recorded it wont let me finalize


Today with HD High Definition TV these kind of problems appears because the new dvd players have more video resolution options, so, for playing all variety of dvd, and home done dvs,s (like family movies on dvd) you need set up your resolution video on your DVD player at 480i or 480p option, not higher because some DVD movies (mainly oldies) have lower resolution than newer , for example new movies on HD format have 1080 P resolution, and if you have this option chosen in your DVD player you only can see this kind of videos, on the other hand if you have chosen 480i or 480 p on your dvd player , you can play all dvd formats including home movies made with any movie software, in this way you can play dvd-r and +r movies and of cours you can play HD movies also. So put some dvd where your dvd player works well (you need see the dvd menu in the tv screen), then press stop. Then press setup in your remote control, go to video resolution and choose 480 I or 480p, then press ok AND ENJOY THE MOVIE.

Won't play hd dvd


Blu-Ray will never play HD-DVD's, and HD-DVD's will never play Blu-Ray - they are competing technologies. Sorry.
