Question about Samsung DVD-P171 Player

1 Answer

Player turns off after a few minutes of play time

My player turns itself off after playing a movie for about 2-3 minutes. I have returned it to the store twice and got a new one on each occasion, but every new one keeps doing the same thing! I have set the Parental Control to Adult but to no avail.

Does anyone know why?

There should be a DVD Repeat modes or "Repeat/Repeat Modes" button on your remote. Press that until it's back to "ALL" and it should play things properly again for you.

I have a 32 inch RCA LCD TV. when I play a movie, every 2=3 minutes to goes back to the blue screen, and blinks a few times then goes back to the movie. Its with every movie and I dont think it is my dvd...


Probably the Controller unit for the TV. Try hooking it up through a different connection type e.g. HDMI, component. See if that fixes the issue for the time being. If it dies then those ports you used previously are malfunctioning.

The blue-ray movies will not play,,, dvds play fine i have sharp BD-HP21OU,,, I went to your sight and down loaded the firm ware it play the disc onetime and after that no more my player is only 2 months...


This can happen that the movie will play once just fine and then have problems the next time. You have to go to the blu ray player's menu and down to system reset and complete the system reset before attempting to play the movie again. You can also hold down the power button on the front of the unit until it says reset. You will need to complete the one from the unit though to get the movie to play again. If that doesn't work you may need to send it in for repairs or return the unit.

Predators blu ray disc wont play have the latest fimware update tried 2 disks now what???????


First, some long winded history and this may not be exactly the same problem you're having but I have an Oppo BDP-83 and I tried 2 different Predators blu-ray discs from Amazon.com, both of which would NOT play the actual movie. I could play the previews and get to the main menu but could not play the movie itself or jump to a scene select, etc. Any option that was selected would completely freeze the player at a black screen and I'd have to hold the power button down for a few seconds to reboot it. I tried it on the most recent Oppo firmware dated May 5th, 2010 AND the beta firmware date August 24th, 2010. Nothing. I read that some people had luck turning BD-Live OFF or disconnecting the player itself entirely from the network or by just waiting it out 5-10 minutes to see if it'd start....nothing worked. I disconnected the ethernet cable, let it stay at that frozen black screen for 30 minutes while I made dinner, fed the kid, etc. The thing that seemed to finally get the 2nd disc to play (1st disc I returned for an exchange via Amazon) was to select the BD Live Extras at the main menu, and download all of the extra previews, etc. After that, the movie played just fine. It could have been a fluke, but hell, I tried everything else and this was the only thing that didn't completely freeze up my player.

The dvd player will play a movie for about 10 minutes then it gets freezes and does not play anymore. It's brand new. had it about 2 months.


I found out this tv/dvd will not play certain movies that are rented from netflix is that their dvd have a restricted thing, and this tv will not read the movies that are on certain disks. It plays movies good that I rented here in town. So theres nothing really wrong with the player itself. I did some reading and this is what I assummed.

Problem with playing


Occasionally the software on most blu-ray players needs to be updated to the newest technology. The reason some discs play and some don't is because the discs that play are most-likely older movies or from a company that still used the "outdated" software. So the discs that don't play (most likely discs made with the updated software) won't play on your player until you've update the player's software. To do this visit, in your case, Sony's website for update info. There are a few ways you can get the info. You can download it directly to your player (if it has online accessibility) or you can request that they send you an update disc. Either way, most companies provide the update for free. Hope this helps, good luck!

DVD Stuck in Player


While the above problem is not in the manual, I would try pushing and holding down the Open/Close buttton for an extended period to see if the unit will 'unlock' itself.
