Question about Sharp AQUOS Blu-ray Disc Player

1 Answer

My BD HP-22 blu-ray player suddenly stopped playing all blu-rays. DVDs are fine. It either ejects the blu-ray disk or indicates reading is complete, then goes to a black screen. I already downloaded the update when avator wouldn;t play a few months ago, so this is different. I couldn't find any further firmware updates on their website. I tried emailing their tech support and never got a response.

This indicates the laser has actually failed on the blu ray side of things. The lasers are very delicate and almost always go bad before the dvd laser. If the unit is no longer under warranty you are going to want to either sell it for parts or juts keep it for a dvd player. I am so sorry about that but it's defniitely not a firmware issue or software setting, it is definitely the actual physical laser that has failed.

Thanks
Tim

I have region free blu-Ray discs and they won't play in my Samsung bd-h6500. Can you help me unlock the player?


If you have region free blu ray disks then they will play in any blu ray player, the player does not have to be unlocked!

My BD530 player doesn't play all movies clearly. Some come cover good others re all snowy


When properly connected to a High Definition display or TV, Blu-Ray Disks (BD) should play crystal clearly. Inserting an old "non-Blu-Ray" disk (or the original "DVD") in the Blu-Ray player will display a comparatively "fuzzy" picture. This is the difference between High Definition and Standard Definition. A "BD player" can not "upgrade" the picture quality on DVDs to that of a BD or High Definition picture.

Rent, purchase or choose Blu-Ray Disks (BD) whenever a choice is offered to view the High Definition version of a movie or video. Selecting the DVD version will provide the lower quality or Standard Definition version of the same movie or video.

Check the covers or disk itself to determine if the movie or video is in DVD or BD format. That will tell you what you can expect for picture quality.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

My Samsung has suddenly refused to play ordinary dvds


The DVD laser diode could be faulty. Unfortunately there is no easy wat to check it. If it is faulty then the complete laser unit needs to be replaced.

My Samsung 1500 player will play dvds fine but on blu rays it will play for a while then just stop or otherwise say the disc is not playable even though the disc has been played before with no issue and I...


Standard DVDSs are read by a red laser while blue ray DVDs are read by a blue laser (hence the name). The blue laser diode is likely to be faulty and therefore standard dvds work but blue ray dvds do not. This is not an easily obtainable or replaceable part.

Blu ray discs freeze up after playing a few chapters, regular dvds play fine, player says it has the latest firmware available


Do the reset that is in the menu first. After completing that reset hold down the power button on the bluray player itself not the one on the remote until it displays reset on its screen.

Blu ray disk wont play.


this could be a failure in the processing secttion of the card. since this is only months old it is important that you take this for warranty claims and get the immediate attention. It could be also expensive if it is out of warranty, possible failure of the proccs board.

Hi i have a sharp hp22 i ham trying to play normal dvds on it ? is that possible


All Blu Ray players that I have dealt with are what is termed "backwards compatible" which means they play Blu Ray, standard DVDs,music CDs,MP3s,recorded CDs and DVDs, etc. yours should have no problem reading and playing back your "normal" DVDs. Good luck !

My Sony Blu ray can't play normal DVDs in my region - Africa. How do I change the region coding just for DVDs?


It's not possible to change the region code in the Blu-ray Player.

BD media does have region codes. But, unlike current DVD players, the region codes for BD media use letters instead of numbers to indicate a particular zone or region where the discs can be played.

The BD region codes are as follows:
Region A: North America, South America, U.S. Territories, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia

Region B: Europe, Africa, Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.

Region C: Asia (except for Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia)
