    Hi Lee,
    I have a Sharp Blue Ray DVD Model BD-Hp17U. It was Manufactured in 2009 and has never been updated. When I attempt to play Blue Ray DVDs it locks up and the power plug must be disconnected to open the unit and release the DVD.

    I've tried going on line to get the Sharp download to update the DVD player, but the site is not responsive (not user friendly either). I need step by step instructions on how to solve the problem:

    1 - Gain full access to Sharp download
    2 - How to update the DVD player
    3 - any other solution which solves the problem.

    Thanks.

Solution for SHARP update with cd using MAC:


1. download the firmware CD .iso file
2. open disk utility which is in the utilities folder in your applications folder
3. click on the convert icon at the top of the disk utility window
4. select the .iso file and click the convert botton
5. in the drop down window that opens select dvd/cd master in image format
6. click save, and then click use .cdr when the next dialog box opens
7. the .cdr file will appear in the window on the left side of the disk utility window, select it, after inserting a blank cdr disc, click the burn icon at the top of the disk utility window.
10. follow the directions on Sony's site for updating firmware

All this sounds complicated, but its actually quick and easy once you've done it the first time. The directions above describe the process using Mac OS 10.5, the positions of buttons are slightly different in older versions of the OS.

Why did it freeze during software update?


Here is some help on a Sharp Aquos. You pull the plug and update manually.


Sharp Aquos Firmware Update Issue and Resolution I recently had problems with my Sharp Aquos LC-60LE632U and firmware update 311U1204061. When I attempted to run the Netflix app, I was told that I couldn't proceed unless I updated the firmware. After 2 attempts to update the firmware via the network, I turned to Google and found that this was a common problem. In order to resolve the issue, you'll need to update the firmware manually, via a USB thumb drive. See the following instructions:

  1. Go to the Sharp USA product download site
  2. After you choose your TV model, download the firmware file
  3. View the rest of the instructions found here

LC-40LB700X Television with blu ray.....what blu ray updates do i need?


Hi Philip,

I have the same tv as you. The update file can be downloaded from the Sharp AU support site. What they don't tell you though is that you need to format your USB stick as FAT (not FAT 32) using Windows before copying the update file to it. That worked for me.

My sharp blue-ray dvd player won't play any rented blue ray dvds.


Probably something like a BIOS update. The Sharp site should have it. May be under a support section. Read how to do it at the site. Sometimes, doing that is a little risky. Look for forums where people have done it, either there is much success, or much failure updating. If it fails, you will most likely have to send it or take it to a authorized repair place.

Blu-Ray player not reading Blu-Ray movie


I had the same problem - Fix - Go to the sharp web site and download the file HP21U_HP50U_PN902270. You will need to make sure your thumb drive is no bigger than 4gb and you do not have any other files on it. Once you download the file on the thumb drive, you will need to unzip the file on the same thumb drive. The zip file is one of the new ones, so you might need to go to the web and get a shareware program that will open it. After this - turn your player on and go to setting, next scroll down to update firmware, insert the drive and tell it OK, it will ask you if this is OK, tell it OK and it will upgrade the firmware in about 2 min. I have already done this with 3 other players with no problem. Good luck. The sharp web site is sometimes a little hard to find and to me was not the most user friendly. good luck Pruitt43@yahoo.com
