My BD HP20 will not play most new Blu Ray disc. I understand it needs to be updated. Is there some thing I can buy to do the update ?


You need a USB flash drive (FAT format); in my experience even less than 1G drives are sufficient. Download the firmware update to your computer from the site:
http://www.sharpusa.com/CustomerSupport/ProductDownloads.aspx
(You'll need to fill in the drop down menus) The file is a .zip and must be extracted to the root directory of the USB drive. Then safely eject the drive from the computer (to ensure that the write step is finished). Plug the drive into the player (port marked Service) and go through the setup menus. Setup > Settings > Software Update (you need a password so it will ask you for one if not already set). Click Enter and the file on the drive will be compared to the current installed firmware. Then press Yes to install and wait for it to finish. If errors occur try removing and reinserting the drive. When done, remove the flash drive.

I hope this helps.

(some TV repair shops may have the flash drives available but you'd probably have to pay for a service call to get a technician and the drive.)

I have a Sharp BD-Hp20 and i already got the firmware update and still cannot watch Avatar Bluray please help.


Make sure that you do have Version HU9071500 installed--->press setup button------>settings-------> version. If it is installed then after you insert Avatar it takes between 8 and 10 minutes before you can select play movie.

Its asking for an update in order that I can play this b/ray dvd!


There is no cost to update the player on your own. You will need a 2GB flash drive formatted to the fat 32 file system. You can download the update to your usb device directly from www.sharp.ca
Click on Service Support, downloads, Blu ray player, next your model number, done
Click on the firmware and save it to your usb device.

Refer to the manual on page 40 for directions on completing the update on your player.

See my other posts regarding this problem where I explain in detail what happens when playing Avatar on this unit and completing a software update.

Best Buy can also update the unit for you for a charge.

Bd hp210 will not play disc (sharp)


I have the same problem but I did download the updates for both my Sony and Sharp Blu Rays and Avatar played wonderfully but unfortunately a few days later both players stop playing all Blu Rays. Has anyone had the same problem?
