Open Question

Samsung BD-P1580 blu-ray player wont play blu-rays.

I just downloaded and updated the firmware of my Blu ray player today, and it still wont read any Blu rays. I even tried resetting the player but that didn't work either. It plays normal DVDs just fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

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!

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: Unit plays DVD but no longer Blu Rays

That is because of a dirty or defective lens. When lens is dirty, the unit may still operate on regular CDs and DVDs and not be reading BD.

Try first using a lens cleaner for Blue Ray: Maxell 190054 Blu-Ray Lens Cleaner

If that does not work, the unit may be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

How to safely clean a DVD lens?


Clean DVD lens, or replace player?


Clean CD or DVD ROM lens with a brush?


Cleaning your DVD drive


How to clean a DVD player

Being this a blue ray unit , I would suggest calling support instead of disassembling the unit by yourself.

SOURCE: Sharp Blu-Ray model BD-HP20X locked to region 4 how to unlock ?

Well I Checked my data resources and saw that there are no hacks or tricks for Sharp yet... the only thing you can try doing now is to ask your Dealership if they can unlock the regions for you. I've searched everywhere but couldn't find anything for newer models like HDDVD or Blu-Ray players.

Sorry T_T But let's hope someone might be able to help as well..

My samsung blu-ray player won't read blu-ray disc but it reads dvds help!


I looked around on that model and it seem a lot of people are having the same issue.
I would recommend that you try updating the firmware. There is a detailed explanation HERE on the topic of firmware.
You can also request a cd-rom of the firmware from Samsung
Or try downloading the firmware yourself and burn it to a CD-R
Samsung does a really good job at further explaining how to do those HERE
hope this helps get you going

Not playing any blu-ray movies


In most cases, the issue might be with the Java content 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 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.

Wont play blu ray discs only dvd


Are you playing original blu ray disc? Is your player capable of reading multi-format. Read your manual for troubleshooting. If that won't help. Try to play original blu ray or the ones that you have played in before. It that plays that means you have defective blu ray or unreadable format. Hope this help.

Hi there, do not worry, it is saveable. All you need to do is download the firmware, burn it to a cd, and update the firmmware that way. So just to help you out because I do not know your knowledge with computers. You will need the following tools:
