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:

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

Version PF9200400 is the most current version and it was released on 4-26-10.
When the unit is updated to that version it should play the bluray. If you continue to have problems with playing blurays you might need repair as the drive may need to be repaired. If your unit is in warranty you can call Sharp and speak to someone in aquos advantage dispatch to get a refurbished unit as an exchange if you don't want to send the unit in to be repaired.

Due to the nature of players often if the optical Pickup unit inside is dirty or failing Blu-rays will not play but DVD's will.
