No never had this problem before. I was thinking my Blue Ray player was messed up or for some reason would not play this movie but im thinking the disc is defective. I tred it out on a play station 3 and it still would not play.
Seems every player is a bit different in updating. Mine lets me know when there's an update available (Samsung). I have a Sony as well, and I have to go into the menu to see if there's one available (I do this about once a month). If you go to your brand name's site, it will (usually) let you know if there's an update available. You do have it connected to the internet for updates? If not, most brands will send you a disc to put in and update. Hope this helps a bit, Nick.
you can go to your players web site and search for new firmware, stick a writeable cd in your computer, download the file, then put the cd in your player. it will ask you to update on your tv , hit yes.
If you bought the disc through amazon then contact there customer service and they should be able to send you a new disc. That's what they did with me no questions asked. I'm gonna wait and see if that works. If not there is a firmware update to my blue ray player which sharp says can only be done via being hooked up to the web or by using a memory stick and downloading the update onto my blue ray player. Its eaither one of these two issues. I'm just going to wait and see how it plays out
I have an issue with this movie for both menus (the humans and no-humans) it takes around 2 minutes to load, so the best way is to jump to scenes and select the chapter 1. If not I'll wait a couple of minutes, which is sucks.
Aye, Nick, I have two players, different brands, and they both take time to load. I think the second Narnia film is the worst about loading time. I think it's just something that has to be endured at this time. The players are basically computers, and some programs take longer than others to load. I'm sure someone will come up with a quicker-loading blu-ray before longer and really tout that improvement. Happy to hear that yours is all updated and going now. :-)
Yes. My player is working and all it needed was a firmware update which I had no idea it needed. Thanks jerome for letting me know about it. I let a couple other people know about it also and they are checking there blue ray players.
This is WAY after your post of Jan 4. We bought a Samsung Blue Ray player last week and had the Firmware updated to play Avatar. Bought District 9 today and discovered it does not play (the Previews or Trailers of other movies play but District 9 won't). If this means we have to update our Firmware for every Blue Ray movie we buy I am getting out of this industry. Side note, the DVD version of District 9 did not play either.
Aye, I completely understand and sympathize. I just got off the phone with Netflix. One of their blu-rays wouldn't play on my player. He said my firmware needed updating. I checked and it's up-to-date. I'd take the Avatar film back and try another. It does look beautiful on my Samsung.
If you go online somthing like 70% of the Avatar Blue Rays don't work. It doesn't have to do with firmware. 20th century fox put a state of the art security on the disc so people can not copy them. The issues though is that its so high tech it won't play on pretty much all blue ray players.
why should it have to be updated. the new disc should include the update. This is creating major grief. I purchased a blue ray disc to play in my blue ray player. Why does it not work? I have taken three discs back to the store and still cannot get one to work on my ps3 and my HP notebook purchased a year a to. the last blue ray I purhased worked. Why doesn't this one work?
You have a very good idea, Roxanne, and though I don't have the expertise to comment on this as an expert, I would think that each brand of blu-ray player would have its own way to update. I just had to do an update to play the Captain America BD. I don't think to check for updates until I actually have a new disc that won't play. It would be nice if the blu-ray player would let ME know when there's an update available. I can only imagine how irritating it is for those whose blu-ray player is not connected to the internet. They would have to go to the internet site, make a disc of the update, then play it on the blu-ray player. An automatic update would be nice...
It's really not hard to do the update all you you need is a USB jump drive and you can d/l from the manufacturer website and hook it to the back of the player. That's what I did to my two Samsung blue ray players that don't have wifi. It took me 20 minutes on each and now they play all blue rays.
i am having the same problem. i got a blue ray player but its not playing blue ray dvds its only playing normal dvds. any advice how i can get the blue ray dvds to work? i try diff blue ray dvds still dont work.
