Panasonic BD35 won't play blu ray discs, but will play dvds

Updated firmware about 3 months ago and had no problems (burned disc for update, not ethernet). Got a couple new blu ray discs and unit has become problematic; sometimes spins disc and then says "stop" or "no disc" yet plays standard dvds. There have been ZERO changes to unit's connections, power, etc. I put in a blu ray disc that has never had a problem and it displayed the same inability to play. Discs are all standard purchases from Wal-Mart / Amazon and are region 1. Unit is 3 years old, but has worked fine up until recently. I have never used an sd card.

You may have come close to what the issue is---Blu Ray for several design reasons is much more critical than DVD---seen a lot with this issue----either a dirty or a failing optical pickup in the unit---I know as when first started seeing it in our shop changed a few and since under warranty found the answer--optical unit was the problem---shortly after that they started just exchanging the cheaper units.

SOURCE: panasonic bd 60 plays standard

You might have to update the firmware on it. This usually involves connecting the Player to the internet though your home network, and then in menu go to update. Best buy can do this for a fee if having trouble.

My samsung bd-p1500 blu-ray player won't play blu-ray discs on regular ones... was having all sorts of troubles with it finally updated the firmware and now it won't play any blu-ray discs


I'm having the same problem. had my Blu-ray and my cable box plugged into my reciever. Blu-ray kept cutting out and not finding a signal while watching my Rome DVDs. I swapped HDMI cables by just switch which cable went out of my blu-ray ( I didn't change what ports they were plugged into on the reciever. That cleared up that problem. I'd assume it was a faulty HDMI cable except that it works fine on the cable box. Anyways, we were watching Iron Man on Blue-Ray and it starts to skip about 2 thirds through the movie. Same as you I updated the firmware, disabled BC-Live, No luck Don't know if the problem is hte Bluray player , the reciever or what. Everything is up to date so I don't get it at all.

I turn on blu ray player and it goes to the regular sonybluray screen and as soon as disc starts to load, screen goes dark and no picure but I can see its playing by the counter


Try updating your player's firmware. You can download the firmware file from sony's website. The blu-ray players require many updates because the blu-ray discs have format changes and special numbers that the player needs recorded into the firmware so the newer movies will play. Here is a link to the download page for the BDP-S300 player. http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=BDPS300&LOC=3
You will need to select the download for your operating system. Then you will need to burn the files onto a cd-r disc using the "burn image" option of your burning software. Once the disc has been made you can load it into your blu-ray player and then update the firmware. once updated it should bring your player back up and running again. These players require periodic updates. The newer players that can hook up to the internet update automatically when hooked up to the internet.

Samsung BD-P1500 Plays Blu Ray but not DVD's


Nope. The laser mechanism seems to have developed a preference of its won and refuses to work with DVD media.
You have already done a firmware update so that is ng. Could be that when you updated it to play newer blue rays, the update messed up unit for dvd playback. Happens.

But do not sweat - that unit has a one year warranty - use it.
