Question about Sharp AQUOS Blu-ray Disc Player

1 Answer

Be careful with firmware update PN9022700

I am very disappointed because after firmware update I can no longer play HD home movie burned on regular 4.5 GB disc. That new firmware is a ****. Still has issues playing some bluray disc. Now can't use ANY DVD disc, even if it is burned in HD format.

Upgrading Firmware is a very dangerous exercise because it is non-reversable. It is important to make sure that the firmare downloaded is for the correct model and for the correct country. Repair for wrong firmware will only be replacement of the main PCB.

Will not play new movies. keeps rebooting to previews


There is one new firmware available here:http://insigniaproducts.com/products/dvd-players-recorders/NS-BRDVD.html

just download the firmware and follow directions to install it. One problem is that Insignia will not do a new update so any movies coming out with the new security feature on new Blurays will have problems playing.

Visit the insignia forums and post some messages or write a email to help get our players running for at least a little longer.

Thanks and feel free to comment with any questions at all.

I ripped Bluray movies using "ANY DVD HD" to my hardrive then playing them through "WD TV Live HD Media Player" (using HDMI cable to Sony Bravia HD L.C.D.TV) some movies work good but others play the video...


Either check around in Any DVD HD or the BluRay menu to set audio output to PCM, which doesn't require any decoding to play back properly or you will have to convert them separately.

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.

It could be the codec u use to encode the movie,
secondly could be a firm ware problem of your dvd player.
Other than this I can't think of any other reason. or just may be the type of recoreder u use or the recoding programe. If u had check these, then get another player
Sorry, this is all I can think of.
PS. the player firmware is the main reason to me.
Cheers

WILL NOT PLAY IRON MAN OR KINGDGOM OF HE CRYSTAL SKULL, BUT IT PLAYS ALL OTHER BLU-RAY DISKS


Go to the wed site and download the latest Firmware update to your computer. It downloads as an image file. The use a disc burning software like Nero or Cyberlink's Power2Go and go to "Burn Image to Disc" and burn it on a regular CD-R. Insert that to your player after turning it on and let it do its thing, it will take a while so don't power down thinking it froze or it will mess up your player.
After the update is done, your player will re-start. You should now be able to watch the latest movies.
Be Warned! Even newer movies might have issues playing. That's normal, just give time for the manufacturer to release an even newer Firmware update to play them. Just one of the things we have to live with for the sake of 1080P.

Dvd player, hd dvd movies


If this is just a regular DVD player, then no. You need an HD DVD player to play HD DVD discs. Now the HD DVD players should play regular DVD discs.
