Question about Sharp Televison & Video

Open Question

I have 2 problems with my SHARP BD-HP52 Blu-ray player. I just recently got Avatar on Blu-Ray. I have never updated my Firmware on my player since I got it. I tried watching it and it gave me a warning that it wouldnt play Avatar without an update. So I connected it to the internet and it started updating I have Version PG10030900. After it finished updating I Played the movie, about halfway through he movie, suddenly the timeline and chapter name/picture appeared in the middle of the screen. And it kept doing that for every new chapter that started. Closer to the end of the movie it just started poping up every few seconds, making it very hard to watch the movie when it keeps poping up the chapter name/picture and the timeline of where you are in the movie every couple of seconds. I thought that maybe it needed another update so I went back to the menu and manually updated it. But it said it couldnt connect to the internet. So I tried to re-establish internet conneciton and it told me ''Input The Right Number/Word After Confirming The Content'' so now I'm stuck at this conjunction of not being able to update anymore and cant enjoy my movie. Plz help.

SOURCE: i downloaded to the latest firmwire update to my

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?

SOURCE: Sharp BDHD16 won't play Blu Ray Avatar movie,

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.

BDHP20U Blu-Ray Player: My Avatar Blu Ray will not play on my Sharp BDHP2O...


Go into the player's setup menu. Try disabling BD-Live, which is a "feature" that makes your player connect to a server on the internet every time you load the disk. If there is a problem connecting to the server some disks cause players to wait forever for the connection, which looks to the user like something is broken.
You can probably find the BD-Live settings in the Setup menu under Network. I have an LG player, so I'm not familiar with the Sharp setup menu.
I hope this helps you. Good luck.

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.

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.

Playing Avatar Sharp Blue ray requires an update


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.
