Question about Samsung BD-P1500 Blu-Ray Player

After updating the firmware on by Samsung BluRay

After updating the firmware (downloaded 6/5/2010 from Samsung's website) on my Samsung BluRay BD-P1500 player, it doesn't recognize any of my BlueRay discs. I put in a disc, and the front display says "Close" and the TV just shows the Samsung display and nothing happens.

The firmware you used may have been corrupt which would cause that kind of problem.Try downloading again and reflash the player or download from a different site

Good luck

Firmware update for LG bp125 gone bad


I ran into issues updating my BP125 to the LG_BD_7300M51.ROM firmware with a USB drive but was able to work around them. I think they occur because the BP125 expects the firmware to be in the upg_all subdirectory during part of the update. To successfully update, it needs to be in upg_all on the USB drive. If you update with LG_BD_7300M51.ROM firmware file in the root directory, the Bluray drive won't complete booting but a workaround can restore the Bluray drive. Here are the steps I took:

First, I tried to update with the LG_BD_7300M51.ROM file in the root directory on a USB drive. The update found the firmware, started the update, then powered off. I powered the Bluray player back on, and it said the update had failed and gave me an option to update using USB or Network. Neither worked with the LG_BD_7300M51.ROM file.

Second, I downloaded the BP120 LG_BD_7200M51.ROM firmware file, renamed it to LG_BD_7300M51.ROM, and put it in the root directory. The Bluray player found the firmware file, and I updated to it. That put the BP120 firmware on the BP125.

To update to the BP125 firmware, I renamed the LG_BD_7300M51.ROM file to LG_BD_7200M51.ROM and put it in the upg_all directory on the USB drive. The Bluray player then saw the update. I applied it successfully to get to the latest BP125 firmware.

Samsung blue ray player not working after being unplugged while updating


Go to Samsung's website here:

http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/BD-C6500/XAA

and click on FIRMWARE.
Download that file and unzip it to your desktop.
Copy the unzipped file to a flash drive and remove flash drive.
Make sure your Bluray is plugged in and turned on, with NO DISC in it.
Plug in the flash drive into the Bluray player jack.
A popup will come up onscreen saying NEW SOFTWARE IS AVAILABLE.
Click on YES (or OK) and it will replace the firmware.

THERE IS A PRETTY GOOD CHANCE THE UNIT IS DEAD.
BUT THIS PROCEDURE MIGHT REVIVE IT FOR YOU!!

New Blu-Ray disc won't play on Samsung BD-P1600. It's Disney's "Tangled". I've updated the firmware. The disc loads so you see the Disney castle, and then it stops there. Well, the timer is...


Press the stop button on your controller when you get to the Disney castle, then press the disc menu button on your controller, this should take you to the disc menu and then you can choose play and watch the movie. This worked for me, I was having the same problem, even returned the Bluray disc, got a new one and same thing happened. The same problem is happening with the Tron bluray discs.

I have purchased new Blu-ray DVD's and went to play and it said need new firmware update? Hope do I do that????


The best way to accomplish this is to connect an ethernet cable directly from your modem to the bluray player (TV needs to stay connected to the player so you can see the menu). Find the Update option in the menu and that's that.

If you can't do that, use a USB flash drive to transfer the Update manually.

This is the website:

http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/BD-UP5000

It is important to follow the directions exactly as stated by the manufacturer to avoid frustration.

Hope I helped!

Just bought the BD-C5500 model and set it all up but when i try to play a blu ray disc i get a message saying "your blu-ray player requires an update in order to play this disc.... Why would a brand new...


Bluray players have to be updated periodically because they are a technology in progress.
The good thing about bluray players is that you can perform the maintenance on them at home yourself and not have to buy a new bluray player when the content in the discs are changed. You can also take the unit to a Best Buy and a member of the Geek squad will do it for you for a charge.
This is the link to the update file.
http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/tv-video/blu-ray/blu-ray-players/BD-C5500/XAA/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&tab=support
Click on the "Support & Downloads" tab and click "Firmware" you will see a .pdf file that contains instructions, The other file is the firmware update that you need.

Movie 2012 BluRay loads menu but won't play on Sony BluRay player


Sony releases new firmware for the bdp-s350 ever so often to let it play newer movies. The last one can be downloaded from here firmware. Be sure to contact Sony with any problems so they can work on it for the next firmware. They are pretty good about updates as long as we let them know of any problems we are having.

If you are continuing to have problems let me know by sending me a message in the comments and I will go from there. I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Take it easy and hope I helped.
