Absolutely true! I just received information from Sharp that they will be offering firmware upodates and Codecs ( small program ) toi fix this problem It is a change in the Blu ray technology that has caused these movies to require a different set of parameters. It will be available for download you burn it on a CD and run it in the unit and it will then fix itself.
keep onto SHARP website supoport to be on the list for advice

SOURCE: won't play a new blu-ray video

I bought a Sharp BD-HP20S and got Stargate Continuum to play on it, only problem was it wouldn't.
Had bad pixilation, jumping picture and stuttering sound.
Went onto Sharp's website and followed the instructions for downloading and burning a firmware update cd (or usb stick).
Made an update cd, put it in and within 5 minutes the update was over.
Result?
Prefect picture and sound.
Really simple and easy to do.
If you don't want to make a cd yourself Sharp will send one out to you if you contact them.

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.

Life of Pi blu ray won't start up. Plays 20th Fox Logo o.k. but won't start up


I have the same problem, tried it on 2 different (functioning) blu-ray players at home with the same result. Both are up to date with latest firmware but will not play this disc. Finally had to just watch the standard-def DVD version until I can solve this.

Vizio vbr210 error 11000404 How do I update firmware to watch newer blu ray movies?


I had the same problem -- we even returned the disc and got a new one. Go to the Vizio site and download the firmware for your player. Put it on a USB stick and plug it into the player. Follow the onscreen instructions (basically just press OK). The entire process takes less than 5 minutes from download to finish.

The Hunger Games works perfectly now.

My Bd-hp22 Aquos blu-ray pllayer won't play a blu-ray and I think it needs an update but I don't know how... please help


Hello queerdust89,

Go to www.sharpusa.com and look for a software update. Download into a usb and plug the usb into your blu-ray player. There should be a usb port right at the front. Press menu using your blu-ray remote and go to settings. From there go to software update and click enter. If you have a password on your blu-ray then enter it in, if you have not set one then press enter to start checking data in your USB device. Once it detects it, click yes to start the software update. (NOTE: make sure that there is ONLY the software update in the usb, and other folders or files otherwise it will not update). Once you press enter to start updating, give a few minutes for it to update by itself. Once its done, just turn off the blu-ray and take out the usb. Turn it back on and try putting a blu-ray movie in there. I hope this helps, give me your feedback if it does not. Good luck.

A new "Tangled" movie disc not play in Blu-Ray


As newer bluray movies come out they are constantly tweeking the format. More then likely you need to update your bluray players firmware or software. There should be an option under the menu for the bluray player to update the unit of course this will require that you have it hooked into the internet via ethernet cable or wifi network.

I would take the movie back. We have found DVDs which cause similar problems.

Crank 2 will not play in Sony S350


The software updates for your Sony BDP-S350 can be found at their website here. You will need to download the file, burn it to a disc and then load the disc into your player to upgrade its software to play your new blu-ray movie.

I hope that helps.

Problem with playing


Occasionally the software on most blu-ray players needs to be updated to the newest technology. The reason some discs play and some don't is because the discs that play are most-likely older movies or from a company that still used the "outdated" software. So the discs that don't play (most likely discs made with the updated software) won't play on your player until you've update the player's software. To do this visit, in your case, Sony's website for update info. There are a few ways you can get the info. You can download it directly to your player (if it has online accessibility) or you can request that they send you an update disc. Either way, most companies provide the update for free. Hope this helps, good luck!
