Question about Samsung BD-P1580 Blu-Ray Player
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.

Regarding this issue, the only way to resolve this issue to download a Firmware update from samsung.com Here is the link where you can download this Firmware update: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/download/supportDown.do?group=mp3audiovideo&type=mp3players&subtype=flashmemory&model_nm=BD-P1000&language=&dType=D&mType=FM&vType=L&prd_ia_cd=03020100 Download first the manual on how to update firmware for your unit then download the FIRMWARE file. basically what you need to do is to download this Firmware update to your computer then burn it on a Disc using nero after that let it play to your Blu-ray player to do an automatic firmware update for your player. Hopes this helps.

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!

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:

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