Question about Samsung BD-P1500 Blu-Ray Player

1 Answer

I can't get my BD 1500 to connect to the web to update my firmware. I've had Samsung send me the updates on a disk, but the player can't read the disks, it says loading and then ejects the disk. I guess I can try to update by puting the updates on a USB stick. Any other suggestions?

I've used the USB method and it's never failed me, but make sure you read the instructions re NO DISK in the machine, power off, insert USB, power up, etc.

Failing that I have run a cat 5 (ethernet) cable and plugged it into the back so it was directly network connected. You do need to go into the setup / network setup menu of the player and tell it what your internet DNS server numbers are. If you're not sure of these, or it's starting to sound scary, maybe stick with the USB method.

I have a samsung BD c5500 bluray player. When I try to play movies it says mismatch disk and region code. How can I fix this?


Providing that you have a legal DVD player that is meant to play discs in this country and that you have bought a legal disc (not an illegal bootleg copy) you might need to do a firmware update on player.

If player has internet connectivity you can do it directly on player - it should be a menu prompt to update firmware

if no internet connection is available on player you will need to contact Samsung and have them send firmware update to you on a disc and load it that way

If either disc or player is a bootleg or grey/black market purchase than that is the issue

Players will only play discs from the region they were made to work in

USA is region 1

good luck

Will not play movie


All the disks?
You may have firmware problem, this is one of the reson I do not own BRAY since you have to keep updating the firmware so you can play some of the new released BRAY disk.

went to samsung web site and aquired firmware update for a thumbdrive install [USB on back of BD-P1500] This seemed to work and part of the update from previous early firmware versions was to "improve the ability to properly display all DVD types"

My samsung BD-P2500 Bluray player is stuck at a load message


Hi.
First try disconnecting power cord for five minutes. On restart keep playing eject while the unit is starting up, to eject if there is a disk stuck inside.

Contact Samsung support number, listed on the owners manual. If a firmware update is available they will guide through the update.

If the firmware update does not fix the problem, then the BD player may have a defective or dirty lens.

Using lens cleaner can invalidate warranty, talk to Samsung first.

Firmware download for MAC


hey same problem here, but I just downloaded the CD version anyways... then dropped the .RUF file onto my desktop, selected it, burnt it to a CD-R (RW will also work) and popped it into the BD-P1500, so far it seems to be running along steadily in the update process... hope this solves your problem.

You may need to go to Samsung's web site and get a firmware update for your player. Blu-Ray's compatibility is not guaranteed for all disks and Samsung updates the firmware for the various players for disc compatibility on a regular basis.
I just looked on their site and I saw they have a version 2.0 update for the US and Canada. Click on the link above and it should download. You may also need to get the firmware update document for instructions. That may solve the problem.

Cheers
