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.

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...

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.
