SOURCE: Disc is stuck in my

Thats not what you do.. I tried that and almost broke my $500 player... I finally found the booklet what it says to do is hold the power button till it says reset and this will turn off the blu ray... When the blu ray shuts off push the open/close button... It will open up in a few mins... That disk you put in was probley not readable.. Hope that helps

SOURCE: Sharp BD-HP20U Had been working fine,

I have the same problem. I started several months ago with brand new blueray disks. Now even disks that worked before, now come up as incompatible disks. I have tried contacting support thru their website and never getting a response. Not even the automated response about how blueray is always changing. No firmware upgrades since 10-29-08. I will never purchase any sharp products again. And I would advise anyone considering it, dont. What a waste of money.

My sharp blu ray player no longer plays blu rays


If it plays CDs and DVDs but not BluRays at all, then the blue laser is burned out. CDs and DVDs use a different laser. A needed firmware update would not prevent it from reading a BluRay.

I have up dated a sharp BD HP22 blueray player so it plays new bluerays, but now it doesnt play normal dvds, what can i do. thanks


Check the DVD code written at the back of the player ( 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 ) and see if your disc code matches if not it will not play once you update the firmware. You see many of the players sold in the market have the DVD codes unlocked, but once you update the firmware it automatically goes back to its native region.

My aquos bluray player has stopped playing my blu rays it reads the disc then says reading complete but then theres only a black screen.it plays some older dvds but i bought survival of the dead today and...


Sound like the firmware needs to be updated for the newer encryption schemes had the same problem with my bd-hp21u with a couple of new bd discs. You will need a 1gb or smaller USB drive to put the updated firmware on which Sharp doesen't tell you. The rest is in the manual or available from sharp support.

Blu-ray discs all of the sudden incompatible and won't play


Look for a firmware upgrade for your player. They exist for sole purpose of increasing compatibility with newer blu ray releases. If that does not do the trick it appears that your player's laser assembly is losing its ability to focus on the disk(s). Repair is not cost effective and you will have to go shopping.

BD-HP21U problems playing discs


You have inadvertently downloaded the US (or other region) version of the firmware. Unfortunately if you try and download the UK version the HP21 just tells you you have already installed it. I was told mine the only way to reset it is for it to be sent to Sharp or you can wait for a new firmware update.

Incompatible Disc in Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-Ray Disc Player


I had the exact same problem as you did... I bought the Sharp Aquos 42D85X which came with Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-ray Disc player. could not get brand new blu-ray movies to play and i found it froze everytime after 10 secs. I phoned sharp who basically were no help watsoever! I then went and returned my blu-ray movies back to the store thinking it was a problem with the discs.. The people there were extremely nice and since they had a display model of the BD-HP21X instore they offered to test the movie on it to veroify whether it was the blu-ray player was the problem or not. Turns out its a fault with all of the BD-HP21X models. So we then ended up returning it back to the store we bought it and exchanged it with the older model (BD-HP20X). I now have no problems playing blu-ray movies. Although another suggestion is to perhaps download the lastest firmware update & see if that resolves your issues.
