Question about Samsung BD-P1500 Blu-Ray Player

1 Answer

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

Samsung support stated I should wait for a new firmware update (about a month) I currently have FW version 2.4.

Any unnoficial FW updates out there?

    I just re-loaded FW version 2.4 (freshly downloaded) and the problem went away.

    Not sure if the original was corrupted or if there was an un-announced change to version 2.4.

    The filename I downloaded was "090416_01_BDP1500_XAA.RUF" - for update via USB.

    I fixed this by downloading a firmware update from the Samsung support website. I recommend using the "USB" method as it is less prone to other problems. There are instructions for up-loading to your BluRay player on the website, but basically you plug in the USB stick with the right file on it, turn on the machine (and your TV) and it takes care of itself. Good luck!

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?

The firmware you used may have been corrupt which would cause that kind of problem.Try downloading again and reflash the player or download from a different site

The non-blu-ray laser lens needs cleaning.

Try not to use a blast of compressed air.

Samsung Blu Ray 1500 model wont play any new discs


If you tried firmware update and it doesn't work and its less than a year from the date of purchased call Samsung customer service and claim for warranty . Panasonic has the same issue without explanation.

I believe on startup, you need to hold the fast-forward button on the unit, until you see something about reset in progress...

Samsung BD-P1500 Plays Blu Ray but not DVD's


Nope. The laser mechanism seems to have developed a preference of its won and refuses to work with DVD media.
You have already done a firmware update so that is ng. Could be that when you updated it to play newer blue rays, the update messed up unit for dvd playback. Happens.

But do not sweat - that unit has a one year warranty - use it.

Firmware download for MAC


hey same problem here, but I just downloaded the CD version anyways... then dropped the .RUF file onto my desktop, selected it, burnt it to a CD-R (RW will also work) and popped it into the BD-P1500, so far it seems to be running along steadily in the update process... hope this solves your problem.
