I'm having a few strange things happen with this player as of last night. Confirmed I am on the latest f/w.

1. When turning on the player for the first time, I will see the Samsung Smart TV boot up logo, but after a few seconds, the picture goes black and the main smart hub menu never appears. TV pops up a message that no video signal is present. No matter what hdmi cable I use or what TV it's plugged into the main menu will never come up from a cold boot. There is one interesting workaround I found: while on the blank screen if I pop in a bluray disc, it automatically starts playing and the picture comes back. I can then stop the disc and the smart hub menu appears like expected. I've tried to reset the player, still exhibits the same symptoms. F/W is up to date. This player worked perfectly at this location for several months (even before the f/w update).

2. When streaming Netflix, connected on wifi to 5ghz AP with very good signal strength I get random dropouts every few minutes.

I'll be contacting Samsung support soon, just wanted to post up here first in case anyone else has experienced this also.

I figured out one workaround to the startup issue. I enabled "quickstart" in the settings menu. The player basically stays on all the time now, but in a standby mode instead of off. This seems to be working for me. Not great, but better than having to load a disc and stopping it everytime I want to use the player for something.

For the past 6 months or so mine works fine with Netflix or Amazon for a while, then it blanks out unexpectedly, and I have to unplug the unit to get it to shut down. It will then power up normally, and I can go to a service like netflix. However, it will only play for a couple minutes then freezes again.

Doing a factory reset is the only thing that repairs it, but then I have to go through setup, logging back in to wifi, and logging into Netflix and Amazon.

It will then last like this for a week or two, and start freezing again.

Any ideas?
