I am so sorry. The only thing you can do is alert Vizio and tell them that their firmware update has messed up your DVD player. See what they say.
The only thing I can think of is to unplug the DVD player and maybe just maybe that will role back the player. But I wouldn't hold out much hope.
Again, I am sorry and worried that there is no role back feature on my Bluray.

    Thank you-I did unplug it and there was no change, unfortunately. I will contact Vizio and see what they say.

Firmware update for LG bp125 gone bad


I ran into issues updating my BP125 to the LG_BD_7300M51.ROM firmware with a USB drive but was able to work around them. I think they occur because the BP125 expects the firmware to be in the upg_all subdirectory during part of the update. To successfully update, it needs to be in upg_all on the USB drive. If you update with LG_BD_7300M51.ROM firmware file in the root directory, the Bluray drive won't complete booting but a workaround can restore the Bluray drive. Here are the steps I took:

First, I tried to update with the LG_BD_7300M51.ROM file in the root directory on a USB drive. The update found the firmware, started the update, then powered off. I powered the Bluray player back on, and it said the update had failed and gave me an option to update using USB or Network. Neither worked with the LG_BD_7300M51.ROM file.

Second, I downloaded the BP120 LG_BD_7200M51.ROM firmware file, renamed it to LG_BD_7300M51.ROM, and put it in the root directory. The Bluray player found the firmware file, and I updated to it. That put the BP120 firmware on the BP125.

To update to the BP125 firmware, I renamed the LG_BD_7300M51.ROM file to LG_BD_7200M51.ROM and put it in the upg_all directory on the USB drive. The Bluray player then saw the update. I applied it successfully to get to the latest BP125 firmware.

A new "Tangled" movie disc not play in Blu-Ray


As newer bluray movies come out they are constantly tweeking the format. More then likely you need to update your bluray players firmware or software. There should be an option under the menu for the bluray player to update the unit of course this will require that you have it hooked into the internet via ethernet cable or wifi network.

Buy a cd/dvd lens cleaner they run about $8-$10 at the store. If that doesn't work the laser is probably bad.

I have a BD-HP16 Sharp Aquous Pure Mode DVD


Cannot operate could be the disc itself (defective) or the DVD drive (defective in need of repair or replacement) itself. However this is how to complete the update in detail.

The update file can be found here http://www.sharpusa.com/CustomerSupport/ProductDownloads.aspx

Select bluray disc players
model not listed
type in model number
Then click on search
Click on the instructions and read thme if you need to. If you do not need to read the instructions click on the firmware and save it to your desktop. After the download has completed open the folder and click on extract all files under folder tasks, which should be on the left of the window nearer to the top.

At this time insert a 1, 2 or 4 GB flash drive into your computer. Then in the window click on next if you need to or browse and then my computer and then the icon of the usb device itself. Click on extract or next. When it is done safely remove the usb device from your computer by clicking on safely remove hardware located near the time on the bottom right hand side of the computer monitor.
Click on the usb device and click on stop. Remove it from the computer and place it in the back of the bluray player. Turn the tv and bluray player on as if you were going to view a bluray. There shouldn't be any discs inside. Press the setup button on the bluray remote control. Choose settings. Choose software update. Begin the update. After it is completed turn off the bluray player before removing the usb device.

If the usb device needs to be reformatted or if the zip file folder is placed on the usb device instead of the extracted file the download will not be successful.

Blue ray player wont play a new disk says it needs


Software updates have to be done on bluray players whenever the technology in bluray discs themselve is changed. If you call the number for 20th century fox on the back of the bluray a representative there will explain to you what has changed technologically in this bluray that has caused there to be software updates for all of the bluray players. I believe LG can send you a disc so that you can update your player. Give them a call. The bluray players are all manufactured and shipped to the stores. In the meantime if an update is needed and its sitting on the shelf at the store until you buy it, even if you've just bought it an hour ago it will still need to be updated. The stores do not unbox the blu ray players and update them for you. However the Geek squad will update bluray players for customers for a fee.
