Won't play blu ray discs

I inserted the new Watchmen Blu Ray disc and the player wouldn't recognize the disc. I inserted another blu ray disc I owned but now it won't read that one either. It still plays regular dvds. I tried 6 other Blu rays I own and none would play
I downloaded the new firmware successfully but my Blu Ray discs will no longer play in this SONY 350 Blu Ray player.

I also unplugged the player and waited 60 seconds as instructed. Repeatedly. A couple blu ray discs loaded ok but froze within 10 seconds of the movie

SOURCE: can't read blu ray disc

We searched the internet and found out that many people had the same problem as us and the reason for the problem is a defective part. You have to call panasonic and mail the whole unit back to them for the needed repairs. It really stinks to have to give up our player for so long but what else do you do? Never buy panasonic I guess.

I thought that I deleted all of my information from your website when we discovered our problem. Please do not charge me for this. Also please get rid of my info. If I ever do need help again I am happy to try your site. Thanks for asking.

Go to sharps website and download updated firmware version for your model, then transfer the file to the blu ray using a usb mass storage device. I had to do that to mine it would not play new blu rays and i just bought the darn thing should've come updated. Good luck!

SOURCE: My Blu-ray keeps saying no disc.

This can be caused by a number of different things, some simple ones are:

- Unplug for 5 minutes then replug, this will reset the processor and it may smarten up (just like rebooting a computer)

- Take the unit apart and using a Q-tip and lens cleaner gently clean off the lens of the laser...only do this is you feel comfortable. If there is a hair or obstruction on the lens it will not read discs. If it is still under warranty, send it in first before you take it apart, it may void warranty.

- If the above two do not work then the transport mechanism may be defective and the repair would be around 100 -150 dollars, which is probably not worth repairing and it is best to look at a replacement machine.

Hope this helps!

Blu ray player won't play or eject disc


If you want to eject the CD you need to look on the front of the Blu-Ray drive for a small hole, about the size of a pencil-lead. If you open a paper clip and insert it, it should pop the drive open for you.

Netflix will not connect internet on vizio blueray player


see this steps and fix it. God bless you
    • 1 Reset the player if the device stops behaving normally. (Keep in mind that rotation sounds and picture issues during search are normal.) Select the "System" menu from the setup area and choose "Restore Factory Settings" or a similar option. Allow the device to restart and then try the disc again.
    • 2 Insert the disc face up in the tray. If playback fails to start or if it starts and then stops, wipe the disc with a soft cloth and try again. Throw out any heavily scratched discs that won't play.
    • 3 Change the "TV Aspect" to 16:9 in the setup area of the menu if the picture expands left and right or if the picture size is wrong and you're using an HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) cable.
    • 4 Set the wireless Internet router to automatically allow new devices to connect to it if the Insignia player won't connect to the Internet. The player uses only WPS to connect. Some routers that use different automatic setup protocols won't work.
    • 5 Make sure that the connection between the player and the television uses an HDMI cable if you're watching a Blu-ray movie. Some Blu-ray discs will only play over an HDMI connection. Also, remember that some Blu-ray discs won't work with PiP (Picture-in-Picture).

I put in a blu ray disc but it is not playing in any media player and the disc drives do not recognise that a disc has been entered


Unless the drive in your laptop is a blu-ray drive, it won't recognize a blu-ray disc. A blu-ray drive can recognize and play a regular DVD, but it doesn't work the other way around.

If your computer is indeed fitted with a blu-ray drive, the laser lens may need cleaning. On a laptop, you usually have clear access to the lens with the tray open, so you can try cleaning it with a cotton swab moistened with lens cleaner. Or the disc itself may have a problem. Try another disc and see if the trouble continues.

If the computer doesn't have a blu-ray drive and you will frequently want to play blu-ray discs, get a USB external blu-ray drive. It's easier to find one of those than to locate a suitable blu-ray replacement drive for a laptop. There are many variations of drives used in laptops, but an external drive will always be compatible. And you'll be able to use it with other computers not blu-ray equipped.

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!

Blu-ray disc


Hey jude06,

In order to play Blu-Ray discs, you must unfortunately own a Blu-Ray player. Neither HD-DVD players nor Progressive Scan/Upconvert DVD players are capable of playing the discs, and standard DVD players are not able to recognize information on the discs due to how they are constructed.

Please keep in mind that there are always a number of options available to you, should you consider purchasing a Blu-Ray player. While the average asking price with many retailers for stand-alone Blu-Ray players is between $300.00 and $500.00, you can typically obtain an internal Blu-Ray drive for your computer for considerably less. Additionally, the Playstation 3 may also be a viable alternative - the current 40GB model not only plays Blu-Ray discs, but also has the added perk of being a video game console for around the same price as the average stand-alone Blu-Ray player.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
