SOURCE: wont play blu ray dvds

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.

SOURCE: blue ray DVD disc doesn't load but other DVDs do load/play.

You may have to apply an update. There's a key used to decrypt the content on Blueray discs that changes from time to time in an attempt to thwart piracy. Updating involves visiting the manufacturer's(Samsung) website, downloading the update onto a USB stick, and starting the player with the USB stick inserted.

SOURCE: Blue ray player will not

Hi, look due to the high frequencies, and very short wavelengths, involved with the wavelength of the laser and receiver, it really doesn't take much at all to put it out of alignment, maybe NOT enough to effect the "Other" type of mediums, but blueray, literally only has to be a nao-meter out, and we have problems, even dust and the like on the lens will cause grave problems, that wouldn't necessarily corrupt the usual DVD CD. (DVD & CD also have different lasers apart from the blueray one, so what affects one, may not necessarily affect the other.) Also whenever there is a problem, the system simply ramps up the current to the Diode, to compensate, and this often causes damage to the Laser Diode! so it all becomes a vicious circle.
So first I guess you should attempt to clean the lens with a lens cleaner, this may work, usually not,
Samsung is a good brand, but NOT a great brand, and they are a "Cheaper" model, and with electronics, one gets exactly what one pays for...
I would replace it with a slightly more up market unit, with a FULL parts & labor warranty.
I also often advice my clients to then disassemble the old unit, and sell the, GOOD parts of on Ebay, then, you will be able to recoup some money and help some other poor unfortunate to fix their broken one...

SOURCE: won't load blue ray disc

The Laser Pickup Assembly is defective, to play blue ray it needs higher precision and velocity to produce the higher resolution, it is not cost effective for repair.

There is a problem in the laser pickup assembly, blu ray discs require a higher velocity and more precision to play than standard dvd's, if you still have warranty return the unit because there is nothing more can be done.

Why is it a sony BDP-S1200 not play DVD discs but can play blue ray discs?


Check that you are playing the correct region coded discs for your player. Blu-Ray discs tend to be universal but not DVDs. If you are playing Region2 disc when the player is set for region 1 (American) then they won't play and again Vice Versa.

Error message when my Blue Rays reads dvds


It's a software issue. you need to ring the manufacturer to get files and instructions on how to upgrade your machine so it can play the newer blu ray movies. Quite a common problem.

Wont read some discs


This is a indicator that the laser pickup assembly is failing. Try a DVD cleaning kit to clean the laser lens, if no change it is far cheaper to replace the player than have it repaired.

My Samsung 1500 player will play dvds fine but on blu rays it will play for a while then just stop or otherwise say the disc is not playable even though the disc has been played before with no issue and I...


Standard DVDSs are read by a red laser while blue ray DVDs are read by a blue laser (hence the name). The blue laser diode is likely to be faulty and therefore standard dvds work but blue ray dvds do not. This is not an easily obtainable or replaceable part.

Year old S350 plays normal DVDs happily but (recently) wont load up Blu Ray disks. Grinds away loading and eventually says disc not recognised.


Hi:
This is due to a faulty optics lens or mech assembly, the laser used for normal DVS's are red but when Blue ray is inserted the laster uses blue light or blue laser, you may have a defective laser.

Stopped playing Blu Ray discs, but still plays DVDs...


Have you tried upgrading your player's firmware? I have the same model, and had similar problems playing newer Blue Ray Discs.

The solution is to go to sony's website, download the firmware upgrade, burn it to a disc and then load the disc into the player to fix it.

I hope that helps.
