My 5000 seemed to die last night after a lock up on Batman Begins, no amount of restarting it unplugging it, resetting it would allow it to load any format disc. I returned it to BB and picked up a new one (that is a Dec build instead of Nov build btw) using the 20% coupon.
I brought it home and popped in Batman Begins and let it play through, it hesitated on a chapter change near the end, but kept playing. I ejected and tried 3:10 to Yuma, BOOM, same issue as the night before, won't load HD/BD/SD . After trying a bunch of resets, power cycling, cutting power with unit off, cutting power with unit running, etc, etc, I finally got it to load a Standard DVD of "District B13" , ejected, still won't load other discs. Put back in District B13, let it play for a while, did some chapter skips , menu selections, stop, resume play. Then.. magically, it now has loaded all discs i have tried. I'm on the phone, on hold, with Samsung.
Any one else seen anything like this? The disc in question plays flawlessly in my A2, also, both 5ks had the 1.0 FW update.
