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.

I have a Sharp Aquo BD-HP20 and it not playing expandables or prince of persia, neither Letter for Juliet


Try updating the firmware. You will need a usb device 2GB. You can try burning the software to a disc but that is not guaranteed to work. You can get the firmware from this link: http://www.sharp.ca/downloads/default2.asp
Click on blu ray players and then next and then your model number and then done.
Hopefully you are using internet explorer. If you are using mozilla firefox then please go to Tools-Options-and choose ask me where to save files.

So save this file to the desktop and save it not open it. Then double click on it when it is saved to your desktop and then choose folder tasks-extract all files-(extract to your usb device). You can find your usb device under my computer. Then take your usb device over to the bluray player. Insert it and then turn the bluray player on. Press the setup button and go to settings then to software update. Begin the update and a bar will let you know its progress. Then turn off the bluray player before taking out the usb device. When you turn it back on it should be ready to play the titles that would not play. If not you need to press setup and go to the menu and go to settings and system reset. Complete the system reset. Then press and hold down the power button on the front of the unit until it says reset on the front of the unit. You may need to do this between playing movies every time you use the player.

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.

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.
