Avatar will play with the most current version. Make sure that you have the most current version on your player. With no disc inside press the setup button and then navigate to settings and then to version. The most current is Version HU9071500. It can take between 8-10 minutes for the movie to load however. Please allow the unit to completely load the disc and please wait until you see the menu before you try to play the movie.

    I have a follow up to my post. This is specifically what someone experienced when attempting to play Avatar on this unit:



    "You have to wait approximately 8 minutes from the time of putting it in to time of start. You get a message after a minute. then after 4 minutes you get the 20th century fox logo, then after 3 more minutes u get the movie."

Best thing to do is contact Sharp and get your blu ray player registered with them and request Sharp to ship out the latest firmware disc for your player.

Samsung BD-C5500C with latest firmware will not play audio track out on fiber optic to yamaha receiver when playing Avatar BR. Works on Avatar's main menu screen but stops once the movie is started. Same...


Hello,

I don't think this is a software update issue. Just as you said that the player has the latest firmware installed on it. Software update and latest firmware are the same thing.

I think this is a incompatibility issue. The disc is not 100% compatible with the player and that is why there is no audio via sound.

But one more thing you can try is to enter the player's menu, under settings, check audio settings. You can change the sound settings to mono, save settings and try again.

Good luck.

For avatar how fix samsung bd c5500c blu-ray


If this is a Blu Ray Disk then your unit needs a firmware upgrade to be able to play the new Blu ray format. Contact Samsung for the upgrade file, burn to a DVD and run. The update will allow your unit play the new BR Format.

Samsung BDC6500 cannot play AVATAR and Quantum of Solace, firmware BSP-C6500wwbb-1010.4. No newer firmware from internet


I have purchased 3 BD-C6500 so far... all of them updated the firmware to the latest 1013.x.
Check that the player 'says' your Internet connection is ok. I've used the wired connection.

Element EDBCO11 + Avatar = problem


Avatar bluray disc uses some super-new technique for copy-protection, which many players don't support yet. If you already upgraded to the latest firmware, you can only contact your dealer and ask them - or wait for even newer firmware.

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.

Will not play blu ray discs but will play ordinary dvd's


You need the firmware update. You need to download it from here...
http://www.sharpusa.com/CustomerSupport/ProductDownloads/SoftwareDownloads.aspx
and save it to a usb flash drive that is between 1-2 gigs in storage with no other files saved on to it. insert the flash drive into your blu ray player and select " software update" from the settings menu.
