Hey chazh,

If you have been having difficulty playing some discs in your Blu-ray player, there are a couple of things that I would suggest.

First, you may wish to try cleaning the inoperable discs using a soft, lint-free (typically microfiber) cloth. Sometimes dirt or lint can build up on the underside of a disc, preventing it from being read or recognized by an optical drive. When cleaning any disc, remember to use gentle, outward strokes from the center of the disc towards the outer edge.

Secondly, you may wish to try cleaning the Blu-ray player's lens itself. Similar to CD's and DVD's, contaminants on the lens of any optical device can prevent it from being able to read discs. Many retailers (including your local Best Buy™ store) may sell DVD cleaning kits, which can be inserted into the player much like a DVD or other media title.

Should cleaning the discs and player's lens fail to resolve the problem, you may wish to contact Samsung directly for further assistance. While dusty media may be one of the most common reasons why a disc would not play, you could also potentially be encountering format compatibility issues or even a manufacturer's defect (such as a lens that is out of alignment).

If you do not feel comfortable working with the manufacturer, remember that you may always bring your player into your local Best Buy™ store for service and repairs.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

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

Samsung DVD-R120, can I save what?s on a DVD-R that won?t play?


If it will not play either on the recorder it was recorded on or any other player, you need professional help retrieving the data. There are places where this can be done, but it will probably cost MANY times what the disc does.

I have a Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-Ray Disc Player that will not play Blu-Ray discs rented from BlockBusters in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. To Date, of all my 100 regular DVD, and approximately 25 owned Blu-Ray...


BD-P1000 Update Solution
The solution that worked for me: I went to www.samsung.com/ca and downloaded the Samsung BD-P1000 player's firmware update to my desktop. When opened, I was directed to"burn" a DVD on my computer. I then inserted the new DVD in my Blu-Ray player. The player automatically checked and confirmed player model number and registration and uploaded information from the DVD and the update was complete. The BD-P1000 then flawlessly played the rented Blu-Ray disc of "The Scorpion King".
Thank You Samsung!

Will not play blu-ray disc's


Are you able to play other discs on your player? Did you get your discs from a reputable distributor? and not at a flee market? Could be that your discs aren't giving the proper signals.
