    Same problem as described - although the problem is more intermittent. It is getting worse however. Kicks back blu-ray discs 3-4 times before they will play. Regular Dvds play fine.

  • vintorymoore Sep 21, 2008

    I have the same problem, it started doing with slowly and started increasing in freequency and now it wont play a Bluray disk at all.  But it Still plays regular DVD's.  The kicker about this is the fact that it started 2 months after I got the thing and paid 1200.00 for it.  The firmware update did not work either Samsung.  So much for being an Earlier adopter.

    plays standard discs just not blu ray i have tried new firmware but no luck i guess samsung are still the same cheap and nasty compant they have always been

  • breitak67 Mar 14, 2009

    Same issue here. Started out fine. 3 - 6 months later had occasional issues - needed to put the disc in and out a few times on newer discs. Then the first VC-1 discs came out and would not play. After the firmware update things worked for a while, then went downhill fast. Within 6 months of the update no Blu-ray titles would play in the unit (standard DVDs work fine). I bought a PS3. Works great. I got to watch only 15 or 20 movies on the Samsung. At $1000 purchase price, that's $50/movie. Ouch.

    Regular DVDS work fine. Blu-Rays will not read. I have done the 4/17/2009 firmware upgrade but there was no change.

  • Anonymous Mar 30, 2014

    This is so annoying, the blu-ray keeps changing function by itself. Stays on radio for a short time then jumps to another function. Sometimes three functions then stops and its random. I have done a reset still occurs

My samsung bd-p1600 will not play blu ray movies

If it plays other Blue Ray discs OK then either the disc is faulty or it is the wrong region. If it previously played, then my bet is that the disc has a scratch or dirt on it. If you have another blue-ray player or you have a friend with one try it on that or theirs.

Hi have just bought a panasonic blu ray player model dmp-bd77 here in australia we have put in a b/ray dvd from the usa that plays perfectly but when we have put in another american dvd(not blu ray a...

Every blu ray or dvd player sold in the world comes as standard unlocked to play any disc from any region. On the fifth play of a disc the DVD or Bluray will become locked to that region. So if you play 5 USA dvd's on the player after the fifth disc has been played only US dvd's will be recognised by the player, Same applies to BLUrays. So if i were you i would be careful about what discs you are putting in the player. Otherwise you will be left with a bluray player that cannot be used in Australia. After that happens the only way to play other region discs would be to get the player unlocked. Another point to add , a blueray player has two lasers one to play bluray and another to play DVD's. Lasers can fail so you could be able to play DVD's but not Bluray or vice versa depending on which laser has failed.

I am trying to watch a blu ray dvd bit it wont allow me to play it the player just ejects the disc. do I need a software update

Not sure what you are playing it on. A BLURAY disc needs a BluRay compatible disc player, PS3 has one built in. Most PC DVD drives dont play BluRay as standard. Normal HOME DVD players of course cant play them either.

Why does my samsung Blue Ray DVD player load to the menu but wont play the movie


Just need to verify if your trying to play a Bluray Disc or regular DVD?

If Bluray Disc:
All you need to do is to check on the FW version of you BD player. Go to Set-up > System > System Information. SW will be the FW version info. Please be informed that the latest FW version is v2.12. If it will not resolved the concern, try to verify if its happening to all of your Bluray Disc.

Sincerely yours,

My Magnavox bluray disc player NB500MG9 will not play bluray dvds. Please help

My Blu-Ray will not play x disc
A Blu-ray player can play DVD or CD and still not play Blu-ray. It may play Blu-ray but not CD or DVD, or burned discs. This is all caused by the 'optical' a part that reads the disc in the machine. Your player will need service as a Blu-ray optic cannot just be 'dropped' into a player.

My bluray player is a samsung bd-p1500 and terminator salvation the bluray wont play it never even gets to the menu?

All disc players have a thing called stacked tolerance. What it boils down to is some transports in players will not play certain discs; plain and simple.

All you can do it test it out on another BD player to make sure the disc is fine and test another disc in your BD player and make sure it hasn't gone defective.

Sorry I don't have an easy fix, this is not an uncommon problem.

I have a samsung blu ray 1080 hd that won't read disks when inserted it displays the message disk can not be played

Are you tryign to play back hoem made / burnt discs? If so the format more then likely is NOT compatibe with the bluray disc player....This is very common...You must rememeber bluray just came out and right now you have to expect it to only play conventional DVD's and blue disc's any other format is most likely not compatible
