Question about Sharp AQUOS Blu-ray Disc Player

1 Answer

Avatar menu keeps poping up while the movie is playing

During the course of the movie the menu keeps poping up on the screen with the frequency increasing towards the end of the movie. I installed the new firmware for the blue ray player. Wondering if this is software or the blue ray disc?

Make sure that the blu ray player is indicating that the latest firmware is installed on it. Press the setup button go to settings and down to version. Then record the version number. If it is the most current firmware version number after all call 800-237-4277 pressing 1 for all of the prompts. Inform the representative that with the firmware version number installed on your bluray player you are having this problem with Avatar. This helps because Sharp is
gathering information on any occurrences after an update and they are working on another update to resolve any occurrences

    I have further information regarding Avatar on certain units. It appears to be saving some sort of bookmark when the movie is stopped. I don't know what model number you have but on these two model numbers this is how to remedy that:

    On the BDHP22U and BDHP210U, to temporarily resolve this issue, use the following procedure to clear the memory:



    a. With the player on, press [Menu]

    b. Select "Settings"

    c. Select "Software Reset" in the list of menu settings. (the hard reset performed by holding in the "Power" button for 5 seconds does not work to resolve this issue, it has to be done through the menu).

    d. Allow the player to reset and turn itself off. Once it restarts, it should be able to load and read the disc.

How do I get a visual on the netflix movie that is playing? I can hear it, but the screen is white.


HI Jennie
If your using a recent Mac with say Maverics OSX then it may be in an off screen window.
Try these Keys
Ctrl & Page up (Arrow Key).... then Choose Movie Window
Ctrl & Page down (Arrow Key)....
The Settings for this are kept in Settings / Mission Control

I think this will allow you to see the offscreen alternate windows.

Netflix is an on line Internet player from a Paid service.

I don't use the same method or app as you so I'm not sure this will work. I use an Application to play movies from my external hard drive and I get the same off screen window that you seem to be describing.

Good Luck
Trevor

Other Notes:
I use VLC to play all my movies of my hard drive (a free download & it plays every codec type avi, mp4 etc) I keep the Icon for VLC in my bottom dock.
When I double click the VLC icon in the dock the window switches to the current movie playing,
If your using a different movie player program then just double click it's icon in the bottom dock. (e.g. Quicktime Player)

If you do switch to VLC then use the Cmd I (Info) on each type of movie (e.g. .mp4) In the Cmd I , Menu , choose "Open With" and select VLC as the preferred player (after you have installed VLC of course) then click the "Change All" button.
From then on all MP4's movie types will be played by VLC.

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.

Will not play green zone blu ray movie just keeps looping on the menu screen but will not give me any options


I had this same problem with my LG BD390 player. I discovered (through an internet search) that the problem is caused by some kind of BD-Live feature during menu-loading. By switching off the BD-Live function of the Blu-ray player (temporarily) the disc will play normally. At least with my player it did.

The chapter title on Avatar keeps popping up in a box starting about chapter 14.the longer the movie goes the more often it pops up and the longer it stays on screen.i have a bd-hp22x model.


try to play this disc on another set to check for any errors, this could also lead to tricking the micro to shift the menu. Also load the cd next time and click on required fileds only, also avoid the sub titles and check again..

I downloaded to the latest firmwire update to my usb for the sharp bd-hp22u player and when i try to install it it keeps saying no update found and i tried two different usb's and the player keeps sayin no...


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?

My computer keeps restarting usually when playing a movie


Maybe driver related. Do you get a blue screen or it just shuts down instantly? Try installing the latest drivers for your video card.
