Sharp are working on a fix, it's to do with FOX and their anti-copy software, no date given.

Every time I play Avatar in my samsung blu ray player bd-p1000 the screen on the dvd player says interactive but then it starts playing the opening credits and it wont go into menu mode, I can't do...


We have finally managed to get avatar to play!!!!! We had the same problem. Frustrating I know - but after returning the DVD back to the shop three times, trying updating previously, then waiting for another update from Samsung from Sept (they have not provided a further update) - we are feeling jubilant!

We copied the firmware to a CD disc once again. It did not initally look as if it was loading but if you wait you are asked if you if you want to upgrade eventually. Once you affirm - it takes a good five to ten minutes to process the firmware/ upgrade. It tells you when it has completed. We discovered by chance that you need to then switch off the player and switch back on again for the update to become functional.

Initally we still could not get AVATAR to load as far as the menu screen. We tried newer Blue Ray DVDs purchased December that previously would not play - and now do! To get AVATAR to play we switched off & on the blue ray player with the disc still loaded a couple of times and each time we got a little further towards the functioning menu screen.

A lot of messing around, so be sure you have the time available to persevere!

My Sharp model BD-HP210U will not play the new Blu Ray DVD Avatar. Do I need to upgrade the software?


I did and my problem is fixed with this model. On a side note I wish I would have got the models with Pure Mode, but the 210u was a steal at 100 bucks.

I have a sharp bd-hp21u model blu-ray disc player. I am trying to use a brand new blu-ray disc. However, it will only play for 17 seconds and goes blank. What shd I do? It will play regualr dvd's.


Verify version of the firmware, if it is older then PN9062300, you will have to upgrade it. Newer version of the firmware can be found here. For instruction on upgrade procedure refer to the owner's manual.

Blue ray player wont play blue ray ''Kung Fu Panda'' disc.


i fixed this exactly as previous posted solutions, however a couple of points.
a) recordable CDs work if you don't have a DVD burner.
b) I didn't have a CD burner that would do an "image burn", I downloaded a free copy of "Express Burn" and that worked fine. The disk needs to be "finalised" or "fixated", it should do this automatically, or it may be a tick box selection.
c) I got a "No DWLD 09" when I put the disk into the player. I found this was an incompatibility with the CD-R (Maxwell) I was using. I changed to JVC and it worked fine.

BD-HP21U | BD-HP50U Firmware Version PN8091201 For some reason it gives me an error message on my player when i try to load it on. Im not the only one having this problem. thanks


I had similar problems with the firmware upgrade. I had to do a "System Reset" on my player (in Settings menu), and after that, the firmware went on without a problem. It played Casino Royale fine after that (as well as Dark Knight). It still will not play Prince Caspian though. I have heard that an update from Sharp is due to be released any day now to fix the problems with Caspian.
