Question about Samsung BD-P1000
We bought a Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-ray player in the
Back to the problem: where the PHILIPS was able to play back our normal DUTCH/EUROPEAN REGION DVD-VIDEO'S, we have no sound and just some stripes and colours in the left above corner of the screen. Obviously there is a translating problem, somewhere down the line. Is this a software problem? Is there an upgrade available for this BD-P1000 player? We don't know.

SOURCE: Black Bars on all blu ray movies
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,

I called Samsung with the same issue. After verifying the latest firmware was installed, they suggested I send the unit in for service. I expect it back sometime this week, and DVD playback will be the first thing I test.

this could be a failure in the processing secttion of the card. since this is only months old it is important that you take this for warranty claims and get the immediate attention. It could be also expensive if it is out of warranty, possible failure of the proccs board.
