Question about Sharp AQUOS Blu-ray Disc Player
I owned spiderman for a few months and always played just fine, one day it became incompatible...both discs in the set. I unplugged player,plugged it back in and I got one disc to work but not the other. Ended up returning dvd to store...claiming it was the dvd because other blu-ray dvds worked fine that day.
Rented Hulk put it in player and disc incompatible again. Tried several times, unplugged unit..nothing. 4 year comes along and tries and it worked...BUT since the dvd was stopped and removed from player we cannot get it to play again due to disc incompatible. installed latest update per Sharp-usa site and still not working. Any help would be appreciated.
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.

If it takes it a while to read sounds like one of 2 things or a combonation.
your reading lense that reads your discs may me dirty or you may have dusty
or damaged disk. most likely your machine is dirty I would go to your local store
and ask them for advice on the best type cleaning disc for the blu ray player

The latest firmware is version 1.3 If you do not already have that version I have supplied a link below that will allow you to download it.
This issue is typical with Blu-Ray... You will need to update your firmware frequently to keep up with the constant changes that are made when studios add new features to the disc's.
Check the link from time to time since this is where Samsung will post their new firmware downloads for your player.

I had the exact same problem as you did... I bought the Sharp Aquos 42D85X which came with Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-ray Disc player. could not get brand new blu-ray movies to play and i found it froze everytime after 10 secs. I phoned sharp who basically were no help watsoever! I then went and returned my blu-ray movies back to the store thinking it was a problem with the discs.. The people there were extremely nice and since they had a display model of the BD-HP21X instore they offered to test the movie on it to veroify whether it was the blu-ray player was the problem or not. Turns out its a fault with all of the BD-HP21X models. So we then ended up returning it back to the store we bought it and exchanged it with the older model (BD-HP20X). I now have no problems playing blu-ray movies. Although another suggestion is to perhaps download the lastest firmware update & see if that resolves your issues.

Well I Checked my data resources and saw that there are no hacks or tricks for Sharp yet... the only thing you can try doing now is to ask your Dealership if they can unlock the regions for you. I've searched everywhere but couldn't find anything for newer models like HDDVD or Blu-Ray players.
Sorry T_T But let's hope someone might be able to help as well..

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.
