Not sure if this is a question, but the answer is YES in order to watch Avatar on a Blu ray player without ethernet connection requires a firmware disc to download latest firmware.

Blue ray player will not play copy of Avatar film, error report says it requires an upgrade, where do I find upgrade?


an upgrade or an update? If it needs an update then it probably has an ethernet port for you to hook it up to your router and it should download the update and install it.

I have Power DVD DX that came installed with my Dell. It has worked with my BluRays in the past, however how it continually tells me that I require an update. When I click to download the update, it says...


Some new Blu rays require a rom update. Try going to the drives manufacturers web site and get a rom/bios flash to update the drive. Blu rays are updated that way when new Blu rays come out such as AVATAR. Lots of info about that on the web.

Avatar menu keeps poping up while the movie is playing


Make sure that the blu ray player is indicating that the latest firmware is installed on it. Press the setup button go to settings and down to version. Then record the version number. If it is the most current firmware version number after all call 800-237-4277 pressing 1 for all of the prompts. Inform the representative that with the firmware version number installed on your bluray player you are having this problem with Avatar. This helps because Sharp is
gathering information on any occurrences after an update and they are working on another update to resolve any occurrences

Tried to play Avatar and it will not play..


You need to update the firmware. You also need to know the model number of your bd player. Aquos is not enough.
Firmware is available here:

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.

Blue ray won't play Avatar?


There is a firmware update for the BD-HP22. I had the same problem with Avatar but after I installed the firmware update, it loaded and ran smooth. Use the USB flash drive that came with the player or any other usb flash drive to load the firmware update. Check the link below for instructions and update file from Sharp's website.

Sharp BDHD16 won't play Blu Ray Avatar movie, updated to latest software update which is PF09120100 ( which is also update for sharp BDHP17 machine) file then updates it to the level of a BDHP22 level. ...


Version PF9200400 is the most current version and it was released on 4-26-10.
When the unit is updated to that version it should play the bluray. If you continue to have problems with playing blurays you might need repair as the drive may need to be repaired. If your unit is in warranty you can call Sharp and speak to someone in aquos advantage dispatch to get a refurbished unit as an exchange if you don't want to send the unit in to be repaired.

I downloaded to the latest firmwire update to my usb for the sharp bd-hp22u player and when i try to install it it keeps saying no update found and i tried two different usb's and the player keeps sayin no...


I had the exact same problem! I realized though that I had to extract the Zipped files so my Sharp BD-HP22U could read them. Basically, I extracted the files onto another USB then placed that into my player and it finally recognized the files and began downloading the update. Avatar (Blu-ray), now plays! However, the chapter selection pops up on and off the screen during play. I guess I'll have to figure that out now. Anyone know how to fix that?
