Question about Sharp Aquos BDHP50 Blu-Ray Player

Open Question

I have downloaded the latest software update for Sharp Blu-Ray DVD Player, Model : BDHP50X. The software upgrade is: HP50_126.RVP. It upgrades to allow the latest Blu-Ray DVDs to be played and only Blu-Ray DVDs can be played. Any other DVD which is not a BLU-RAY cannot be played. I have tried to reset the player to factory settings but the latest software version updated still remains and is not reset. Can you please tell me of a solution? Thanks Tash

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:

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

SOURCE: Sharp BDHD16 won't play Blu Ray Avatar movie,

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.

Chronicles of Narnia. Lion,witch,wardrobe blu-ray won't play


Updated firmware last night (for the Bd370) and the main movie disc for Chronicles of Narnia: Lion,witch,wardrobe worked (after previously stalling). However, the bonus disc still doesn't work when I play it (just a blank screen). I traded the Blue-ray DVD from where I bought it for another one, and it made no difference. However, both Narnia discs played okay in the store on a Sharp blue-ray DVD/Tv combo.

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.

today i solved following errors on sharp blu-ray hp20 when updating software to play quantum of solace:

can't detect software: due to .rvp file being inside a folder--not in root directory on usb stick

more than one software file detected by player: .rvp hasn't been properly unzipped. the 2 gb disc and, as far as i could tell, my system (imac os 10.5.6) showed successfully extracted SINGLE file ready for transfer to dvd player, but dvd player said that there was more than one file. erased the 2 gb disc with disc first aid utility as part of exercise. also verified FAT format on 2 gb disc. only after i used a downloaded free mac utility *specifically for extracting ZIP files* to transfer the .rpv file to the 2 gb disc did the dvd player recognize the file and i successfully updated the player's software! (sorry for the run on, i think the logic is accurate)
