Hi.


This BRD does not have built in software update function.

On models where software update is enabled you get the option in the Settings menu.

Also no software update for this model is available.

A firmware update for this player had been made available. Here the link to download for UK ONLY : BDHP20H.

The firmware is updated by burning a CD with the download, and then starting the player with the disk inside.

Note if you have a model different than the one listed, or if your model is not the UK standard, use the links below to locate firmware (no software update available). Use of incorrect firmware may result in BRD player not functioning.

I also suggest not upgrading firmware if the BRD player is working properly. Firmware update will reset all setting to factory and you may find some function being different afterware.

Also, If you fail during firmware update operation (eg. bad disk, power surge etc.), then the unit will not start anymore.

Here links to Sharp support. You can also give them a call to find out if an update on this model is needed.

Toy Story 3 will not play on my Blue Ray player all other blue ray disk's work fine.


Have you updated your Blu-Ray player recently? All BD players need to be updated from time to time because of the growing technology of Blu-Ray. Its always been a con of BD players. Best thing to do is have your player connect to the internet.
I hope this is the back of your player. Connect your Cat5 (Ethernet cable) to your BD player and than to your router or modem. The port should look like this on the back of your player.

Once you have this connected start your player and it will have a option in the menu to update. Once the update is complete Toy Story 3 and all new BD discs should work. If not, its possible that the disc is bad. More often you just need to update 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.

I've downloaded a firmware update for my Aquos BD- HP20 Blu-ray player.  Unzipped the zip file and I put the .RVP file onto a Sony memory stick but when I try to get the player to recognize I file on the...


today i solved following errors on sharp blu-ray hp20 when updating software to play quantum of solace:

can't detect software: due to .rvp file being inside a folder--not in root directory on usb stick

more than one software file detected by player: .rvp hasn't been properly unzipped. the 2 gb disc and, as far as i could tell, my system (imac os 10.5.6) showed successfully extracted SINGLE file ready for transfer to dvd player, but dvd player said that there was more than one file. erased the 2 gb disc with disc first aid utility as part of exercise. also verified FAT format on 2 gb disc. only after i used a downloaded free mac utility *specifically for extracting ZIP files* to transfer the .rpv file to the 2 gb disc did the dvd player recognize the file and i successfully updated the player's software! (sorry for the run on, i think the logic is accurate)

I have a Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-Ray Disc Player that will not play Blu-Ray discs rented from BlockBusters in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. To Date, of all my 100 regular DVD, and approximately 25 owned Blu-Ray...


BD-P1000 Update Solution
The solution that worked for me: I went to www.samsung.com/ca and downloaded the Samsung BD-P1000 player's firmware update to my desktop. When opened, I was directed to"burn" a DVD on my computer. I then inserted the new DVD in my Blu-Ray player. The player automatically checked and confirmed player model number and registration and uploaded information from the DVD and the update was complete. The BD-P1000 then flawlessly played the rented Blu-Ray disc of "The Scorpion King".
Thank You Samsung!
