Sounds like the laser maybe the issue. I would take it back and ask for a refund.

Every time i push a button on my remote for my sharp bd-hp22 blu ray player rc2 shows up on the display and nouthing happens

If reset option did not make all the functions revert to its factory settings, there may be some fault with its firmware. the firmware update should be done. But before that, insert a dvd disk [not Blu_Ray disc] in and see whether the set reads it an starts to play. If not, just open the top cover of the set, and look whether the disc inserted spins inside it as we power ON the set. If it does not spins, the sled motor should be checked. If disc doe not spin inside any disc player, the fault you points out here will occur. Just check this, and inform me. OK

I updated software to my BD-HP22 with the US region but I use my BD-HP22 in Australia. My BD-HP22 now can't play normal DVD. I want to reverse my update. please help.

Word of warning Sharp does not prevent uploading from alternate region in error. I made this mistake and after speaking to Sharp UK cannot do anything but wait for newer version release if at all. once uploaded reversals is impossible.

Blue ray won't play Avatar?

There is a firmware update for the BD-HP22. I had the same problem with Avatar but after I installed the firmware update, it loaded and ran smooth. Use the USB flash drive that came with the player or any other usb flash drive to load the firmware update. Check the link below for instructions and update file from Sharp's website.

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 !

PS3 wont play blue ray or PS3 game discs

Please check the region code on the BD or DVD. It should match the region code set in the system. Otherwise the disc will not play

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.
