SOURCE: firmware update for Element Blu-ray player

I had the same problem. You HAVE TO WAIT 5 minutes after you insert the firmware update disc and BEFORE you press enter on the YES or NO option for updating the firmware.

This happened to me. I bought a new hard drive. Just got it today! It must be the exact same one. Maxtor, 80G 133.

See: http://www.pricegrabber.com/

Type in the above HD and you will find it. Once you get it and install it, it will automaticly format itself.

SOURCE: "Wrong disc" memorex dvd player error

Sounds like a build up of dust on the lens.

2 options -

Either buy a DVD lens cleaner

Note DVD LENS cleaner, NOT DVD Cleaner the latter is for the discs, not the player

or second option is to remove lid from your player (usually 5 or 6 screws) and gently swab the lens with a cotton bud or similar soft lint free product. Try not to push too hard on the lens or you may damage the mechanism.

The lens is really obvious as it faces upwards and looks like a small round clear glass bead.

Make sure its unplugged too!

Dvd won't play my dvd's. keep saying no disc or wrong disc. what is the problem



  • Hi, Sounds like the lens is just really dirty. Go buy a leans cleaner disk and run it through the DVD player two or three times to get the lens good and clean. Repeat about once a month to keep the lens clean and running properly. Sometimes you need to run it through 3 or 4 times to get the lens to read again.

  • These disks I speak of have little bristles on it that "sweep" the lens clean. I use them on all my disk players and they work real well.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Box comes up saying wrong region code a firmware update may have been cause how do i fix


Check Cambridge's website for the firmware software. Download and burn to disc. If that does not fix it the DVD player is most likely region locked and may or may not be able to be unlocked for the type of disc you are playing.

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

Blue ray dvd does not play blue ray movies. It will play regular dvd


In most cases, the issue might be with the Java contents on the new Blu-ray discs is making this issues. The Blu-ray technology is developing everyday and adding more and more features to the existing technology. Hence it is required to make the Blu-ray Player up-to-date by installing the latest firmware update available from the manufacturer (who ever it is). Going ahead with the first step, please install the latest firmware update available for the Blu-ray Player.

Please click the following link to get the latest firmware update available for your Blu-ray Player:


You can enter the model # of your Blu-ray Player to download the firmware update for your player.

You can review the "Important Notes" and "Firmware Update Instructions" on the page to get the instructions to install the firmware update.


If the issue persists after installing the firmware update, the would have been with the disc. Check the disc with another player, try different discs with same player.


If the Blu-ray Player is not at all playing any Blu-ray disc, then it may require service.

My DVD player keeps loading then it says "wrong disc." The DVD will play on other DVD players. Please help!


Diagnosing the fauty parts on dvd player is quite technical but i will suggest a diy solution that may help you on your problem.
Try cleaning the Lens of your DVD(It might be covered by dust thats why it can't read any disc) by a soft cotton bud. Be careful while doing these and try if it will work.
If the problem is still there then i've advice you to send it to repair shop to replace the faulty parts.

Thanks for using fixya.

After getting clarification from Fixya I can pass the links below to you to check yourself

Some players are harder than others to do this but you may want to
try here or here
Comments:
Toshiba's and JVC's are the harder ones to do

I use a Phillips myself as it is not only cheaper but has much more going for it than many of the higher end units. i throw anything at it and it just plays

The older the unit that harder it is to do the region free thing with.
I let my EX have the panasonic (big grin)

If you cant find a fix then look at the codes available for cheaper brands and how easy it is to do it before you purchase one.

Just a thought.
Hope this gives you the information you need

It would be very decent of you to consider the quality of our experts answers and judge them accordingly as you pass through FixYa.

No disc


It could be that the firmware for the DVD drive is out dated, especially if you purchased it before 2003, and some of the new DVD movies have a different encoding then the old ones, hence why it thinks there is no disk, so my only suggestion is see if yopu can get updated firmware. Also try cleaning the lens with one of those laser lens cleaning discs, I have heard stories that that has fixed it a couple of times.
