SOURCE: Unit plays DVD but no longer Blu Rays

That is because of a dirty or defective lens. When lens is dirty, the unit may still operate on regular CDs and DVDs and not be reading BD.

Try first using a lens cleaner for Blue Ray: Maxell 190054 Blu-Ray Lens Cleaner

If that does not work, the unit may be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

How to safely clean a DVD lens?


Clean DVD lens, or replace player?


Clean CD or DVD ROM lens with a brush?


Cleaning your DVD drive

How do I clean my DVD player optical lens isoproponol alcohol

Being this a blue ray unit , I would suggest calling support instead of disassembling the unit by yourself.

Regards

SOURCE: Pioneer DBP-51FD Blu-Ray

I bought mine four days ago and it would not pay the new James Bond Blue-Ray. The screen said your player needs an update. I downloaded the firmware, and it still did not work. I took the disc down to Best Buy and it played fine on an identical DBP 51-FD. Their tech came out with a replacement player and it played fine. Now, however, it will not play the DVD Happily Ever After 2, eve after the firmware update. Strangely enough, the other player played that DVD fine.

In other words, take it back and get another one.

SOURCE: BD-HP21U problems playing discs

You have inadvertently downloaded the US (or other region) version of the firmware. Unfortunately if you try and download the UK version the HP21 just tells you you have already installed it. I was told mine the only way to reset it is for it to be sent to Sharp or you can wait for a new firmware update.

SOURCE: Will not play avatar blueray DVD

I have just had this issue, apparently the firmware needs to be updated. I am at 1.38 but there is a newer version (1.65) available. Look at the following link:

http://www.pioneer.co.uk/uk/support/software/BDP-51FD/index.html#download_18

and look at 'Download the update instructions'. This will tell you how to check your current Firmware Version and how to update it if it is required.

Samsung BD-C5500C with latest firmware will not play audio track out on fiber optic to yamaha receiver when playing Avatar BR. Works on Avatar's main menu screen but stops once the movie is started. Same...


Hello,

I don't think this is a software update issue. Just as you said that the player has the latest firmware installed on it. Software update and latest firmware are the same thing.

I think this is a incompatibility issue. The disc is not 100% compatible with the player and that is why there is no audio via sound.

But one more thing you can try is to enter the player's menu, under settings, check audio settings. You can change the sound settings to mono, save settings and try again.

Good luck.

I have a dell inspiron 1750 - which came bundled with cyberlink powerdvd 8.3.1.6107. It will not play the bluray version of Avatar, nor will it successfully update to any newer version. The Cyberlink...


The Dell Inspiron 1750 came with a DVD+/-RW drive. Did you purchase a replacement blu-ray optical drive (or purchase from dell with the upgrade to blu-ray)? If you do not have a blu-ray drive, a bluray movie will not play.

Cyberlink has some support information and manuals here: http://www.cyberlink.com/prog/support/cs/index.do . Search for PowerDVD and DX8 for Dell in the two drop down menus.

In addition, Cyberlink PowerDVD 8 only supports Blu-ray in their Ultra Edition (Blu-ray Disc) only. You will need to purchase either a newer version of the product that includes blu-ray support (or if sold separately the plug-ins that make the Ultra version of the product). See http://www.cyberlink.com/products/powerdvd/compare-retail_en_US.html for the different versions of Cyberlink PowerDVD 10 (and version 9). Scroll down to the section labeled HD Video Support.

I hope this helps.

For avatar how fix samsung bd c5500c blu-ray


If this is a Blu Ray Disk then your unit needs a firmware upgrade to be able to play the new Blu ray format. Contact Samsung for the upgrade file, burn to a DVD and run. The update will allow your unit play the new BR Format.

Element EDBCO11 + Avatar = problem


Avatar bluray disc uses some super-new technique for copy-protection, which many players don't support yet. If you already upgraded to the latest firmware, you can only contact your dealer and ask them - or wait for even newer firmware.

Playing Avatar Sharp Blue ray requires an update


Not sure if this is a question, but the answer is YES in order to watch Avatar on a Blu ray player without ethernet connection requires a firmware disc to download latest firmware.

Will not play blu ray discs but will play ordinary dvd's


You need the firmware update. You need to download it from here...
http://www.sharpusa.com/CustomerSupport/ProductDownloads/SoftwareDownloads.aspx
and save it to a usb flash drive that is between 1-2 gigs in storage with no other files saved on to it. insert the flash drive into your blu ray player and select " software update" from the settings menu.
