Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

Open Question

My Samsung BD-P1400 Blue Ray Disc Player won't play certain movies. It will play the opening previews but then freezes up when it comes time to play the movie. This happened with the Bucket List and Street Kings. I have tried to download the firmware updates but the player won't identify them whether I do it via a LAN or CD. Player is less then 8 months old. Not happy with this product. Cary

SOURCE: Black Bars on all blu ray movies

Hi icmjrtdr,

Having black bars displayed when watching a Blu-Ray disc is a common occurrence, even with a widescreen television.

You may have heard or seen aspect ratios of 4:3 or 16:9. 4:3 is the ratio of a traditional television that is nearly square. 16:9 is the ratio of most widescreen televisions currently marketed. The reason that even with a 16:9 television Blu-Ray discs are displaying black bars is that many of these discs contain footage that has not been reformatted for television. The screen in a movie theater is even wider than 16:9, and rather than trim the ends, most Blu-Ray discs maintain the entire picture.

Depending on the options available in your particular television, you may be able to find a zoom setting that trims the ends and removes the black bars. It is up to you if you would rather see black bars with the entire picture or lose a small amount of the picture on each side for a full-screen experience.

Hope this helps,
Jason,

SOURCE: Blu-Ray player not reading Blu-Ray movie

Go to sharps website and download updated firmware version for your model, then transfer the file to the blu ray using a usb mass storage device. I had to do that to mine it would not play new blu rays and i just bought the darn thing should've come updated. Good luck!

SOURCE: blue ray player wont play blue ray ''Kung Fu Panda'' disc.

i fixed this exactly as previous posted solutions, however a couple of points.
a) recordable CDs work if you don't have a DVD burner.
b) I didn't have a CD burner that would do an "image burn", I downloaded a free copy of "Express Burn" and that worked fine. The disk needs to be "finalised" or "fixated", it should do this automatically, or it may be a tick box selection.
c) I got a "No DWLD 09" when I put the disk into the player. I found this was an incompatibility with the CD-R (Maxwell) I was using. I changed to JVC and it worked fine.

Since you have done all the updates then Samsung should replace your model, there is nothing more that can be done until they come up with a solution.

Will not play green zone blu ray movie just keeps looping on the menu screen but will not give me any options


I had this same problem with my LG BD390 player. I discovered (through an internet search) that the problem is caused by some kind of BD-Live feature during menu-loading. By switching off the BD-Live function of the Blu-ray player (temporarily) the disc will play normally. At least with my player it did.

Plays dvd, but not blue ray bdp-1400


You could try and update your player's firmware from Samsung. Here is a link http://www.samsung.com/us/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP01&prd_mdl_cd=&prd_mdl_name=BD-P1400&prd_ia_sub_class_cd=P

You will need to download the firmware file and burn it to a cd-rom using your computer's cd burner then put it into the player. You will need to burn it in raw format and might need a burner program to do it. The player will need firmware upgrades often to be able to play the newer blu-ray movies.

Samsung bd-p1400 will not play certain disks


My dark Knight DVD was only playing the first 4 screens and I burned the firmware upgrade to a CD. It took about 20 minutes from the time I inserted it for it to be complete, then it stopped at 4 again but took about 30 seconds and it began to play perfect.

Problem with Wall-e Blue Ray movie


i would say the problems comes from the way the company formatted the movie onto the blu ray discs. and i would say that there will most likely be a recall on them. if anything connect the manufacturer of the movie. hope this helps you.
