Vizio vbr210 error 11000404 How do I update firmware to watch newer blu ray movies?

I had the same problem -- we even returned the disc and got a new one. Go to the Vizio site and download the firmware for your player. Put it on a USB stick and plug it into the player. Follow the onscreen instructions (basically just press OK). The entire process takes less than 5 minutes from download to finish.

The Hunger Games works perfectly now.

Follow the steps below to troubleshoot if the BD player cannot read or play a disc:

1. Ensure the Easy Setup procedure has been completed on the BD player.

NOTE: Can't play DISC may display on the LCD screen if the Easy Setup procedure was not completed first.
2. Ensure the inserted disc is compatible with the BD player.

NOTE: Consult the instruction manual of the BD player for a list of compatible discs.Manuals are available online through the Manuals/Specs/Warranty link on this page.
3. Select BD players may require that a USB memory device has been properly inserted into the EXT slot of the player prior to playing the movie. If the BD player being used does not have an EXT input, skip this step.

NOTE: The USB memory device may need to be re-formatted to FAT32 format prior to inserting it into the player.
4. Use a soft cloth to clean the disc.
5. Examine the disc for any cracks or scratches that might be interfering with playback.
6. Attempt to play another disc.

NOTE: If another disc plays in the player, then the previous disc may be faulty. In this case, contact the Customer Information Service Center at 800-222-7669 to speak with a customer service representative for further troubleshooting.
7. Remove the disc from the BD player.
8. Turn off the BD player.
9. Unplug the power cord of the BD player from the electrical outlet.
10. Let the player remain without power for 1 minute.
11. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

13. Insert the disc into the BD player.
14. Attempt to play the disc.

If the issue is not resolved even after performing these steps, then try installing the latest Firmware update if you have not done yet.

Select the correct Operating System and download the Firmware update.
Then follow the instruction on the same to install the update in the Player.

Coby DVD shows Invalid Disc HELP PLEASE

Did you make the disk if you made the disk your computer has to give it a digital signature so the DVD player can read it if you're using a regular DVD then I would very carefully using rubbing alcohol and Q tip clean the actual laser I would be very careful doing this if too much rubbing alcohol is on the Q tip it will ruin the laser you can also try resetting the DVD player by taking out the battery and unplugging it from any power source and leave it that way for at least 20 seconds to a minute if that doesn't work you might have something else wrong

Wharfedale DVD- 265 saying invalid disc

Check and see if there is dust or dirt or something on the lens. Dirt, grease and fingerprints will cause a DVD player to have read errors.
If it a new player, or under warranty, get it replaced. It sounds like it is failing.

Hope that helped.

RCA DVD player model DRC105N that won't read discs anymore

If the DVD is not reading any CD, then it is often a lens problem.

If th lens cleaner does not work the unit must be taken apart, to clean the lens pickup with isopropyl alcohol and soft cotton tips.

In some case is necessary to replace the lens pickup, as this is defective.
