Without skimming thru the thread I have a quick question...
Is this still playing all the released movies and will it continue to?

So the playback issues are not related to the picture-in-picture function?

That's a great deal considering I paid $579.00 for my BD-P1000 (more than $500.00 in savings). I don't know about recent releases since I use my BD-P1400 primarily. The 1000 is in the master bedroom. If there are any titles you would like me to check (that I own of course), I can try them out on the 1000 and let you know.

The 1000 is the only bd player I have and it has played every movie, including new releases, I have tried.

Sometimes you have to update it with the newest firmware or clear the cache to get a new release to play though.

It should continue to work for new releases as long as sammy continues to provide new firmware.

Thanks guys! Guess it will make a good aux player in my bedroom
post #1627 of 1912
I am sooooo sick of this player. Last night it took about a dozen attempts of closing the disc drawer for "Cloverfield" to load and play. Finally, it played, so I should be thankful for that. Tonight, I wanted to listen to the commentary, but it wouldn't load after another dozen or so tries.

So I got online and found the new ISO for the 1.6 firmware. Burned the image and upgraded the firmware.

And... now my BD-P1000 won't load any Blu-ray movies. No matter what BD I put in, it spits it back out and informs me "This disc cannot be played."

Looks like I won't be watching any Blu-ray goodness until the new Pioneer player I ordered from Value Electronics gets to me. That is, unless someone has any ideas how to get my Samsung working again. I tried downgrading FW back to 1.4 but I get the same symptoms.
post #1628 of 1912
I should have mentioned, too, that I have reset the machine several times by holding down FF on the front panel, but it still won't take a disc. I have also disconnected power briefly. I will try cutting the AC for a longer period, but I don't have high hopes.
post #1629 of 1912
How long have you had the player?

At this point? If mine goes out? I won't be to upset, I did get 2 good years use out of it.
post #1630 of 1912
Hey, John...

I bought it almost exactly a year ago as an open box buy at Best Buy for $500 and I got a $200 store gift card as part of the deal, so really the cost of the player was $300. I immediately brought the firmware up to date at the time so I could play the Pirates movies, and I have kept the FW up to date since then. I love the beautiful picture, but I hate the slow load times and never knowing whether the movie is going to play or not. That has caused some embarrassing moments as I've had people over for the Blu-ray experience.

I guess I can't complain too much about the modest cost of my entry into the Blu-ray format. I had hoped to use this player upstairs when my new Pioneer comes for the theater (where I need its audio decoding and analog outs). But now I suspect I will gain greater pleasure by taking the Sammy 1000 out back and shooting it.

I'm kidding -- I think.

If the 1000 has given up the ghost, I'll have to find something else for upstairs duty. That means fewer dollars for discs.
post #1631 of 1912
I can understand your frustration. I have a PS3, but still have not moved it from the living room to the theater. The wife is opposed to that change.

She wants me to go get another player instead if/when my BD-P1000 gives up on us.

I think that might be phiscal issue on drive. how about the other types of disc, DVD, CD?
Please let me know the BD title list you have. I will try to test with mine.
post #1633 of 1912
John, perhaps a PS3 might be fun for everyone upstairs. That might be something we do down the road a few months, especially if this Sammy 1000 has given up the ghost as a viable Blu-ray player. Downstairs in the theater, I need something that can be rack-mounted easily and has analog outs and built-in audio decoding so that I won't have to upgrade my Yamaha RX-V3000 receiver in the near future. That's why I've pre-ordered the Pioneer 51D and also considered the new Panny and upcoming Sony models, too.

teo, thanks for the offer to test discs, but I don't think it's a problem with particular titles. A random sampling of my 47 Blu-ray movies the last couple of days seems to confirm this player will no longer read any Blu-ray Disc. Until your suggestion, I had actually never played a CD or a DVD in this machine, but I tried both this morning and it does play both of those formats perfectly. So it might get bedroom duty as a CD/DVD player if the Blu-ray functionality is gone for good. That might save it from getting shot through (and I've already spoken with a buddy at work who is into firearms about options in that regard -- I was thinking a slo-mo YouTube video!)

Oh, well. The Sammy 1000 purchased at a big discount did let me participate in the "early adopter" phase of Blu-ray. I guess it was my first-year Blu-ray tax. My first DVD player, a Toshiba from 1997, also didn't last -- but it went for longer than the Sammy did.
post #1634 of 1912
^^^^^^^
Hmmm. I remember reading about others with this problem, but I can't remember what the outcome was with them. You might want to try using some compressed air on your player and seeing if that helps. Might be some dust or other junk inside causing it not to read the Blu ray discs. Or if you are feeling really adventurous, try one of those discs that supposedly clean your laser. If it's truly knackered, it won't hurt.
post #1635 of 1912
There were a fair amount of people early on that got their BD-P1000 drive to read properly again after cleaning the drive.

So it is possible I suppose. I'd probably try it if mine starts to have issues.
post #1636 of 1912
I will give it a go tonight when I get home. I'd really would like to keep the Sammy on active duty in the theater until the Pioneer gets here and in the living room for a time afterward. Thanks, guys.
post #1637 of 1912
Thanks, friends, for the advice. The compressed air didn't work, and so I've decided my relationship with with this Sammy 1000 is over. My friend with the firearms, he decided he'd rather try his hand at getting it working than shoot it for me. So I'm giving it to him. It still plays DVDs, so he's got that.

I'm awaiting a new Pioneer 51D from Value Electronics at the end of the month. And I just got back from Wal-Mart with a Sony BD player that I just hooked up in the theater. I've got the commentary track for Cloverfield going now. The Sony goes upstairs when the Pioneer gets here.

My relationship with mine is fixing to turn into domestic violence!!!!!
Just received "The Ruins" from Netflix and guess what???
It doesn't play. I have the latest firmware and have tried the FF trick three times.
I have tried to reload the disc SEVERAL times. I am tired of this. Disc goes back to Netflix on Monday and I guess I will be purchasing me a Sony 350 or a Sammy 1500 too.
post #1639 of 1912
I have had the same problems, can't get any of the newer discs to play, Rambo, Spiderwick Chronicles just sit on the loading screen for hours and never move.
post #1640 of 1912
Cleaned my player again, held the FF down for 5 seconds and reset my player, now all my movies play. Yessss Thank you so much.

I played a pretty new BD movie (Point Break) on my BD-P1000 and didn't have any problems.

Thats good, because I was going to tell you, with the most current philips or sammy firmware, both of those discs play just fine in my player.

I still have problems with Cloverfield and the Ruins is an absolute no go...

Thats cool though. My retailer that I purchased my Philips from is going to let me send it back and give me credit to purchase a Sammy 1500 or a Panny BD-30 . The only problem is I cannot for the life of me decide which one to get!

I watched Cloverfield and it loaded right up. Hmmmm....interesting how different players will play some disc, and other Sammy owners will not play the same disc. I guess that's what makes me the most upset. Something is not right. I'm glad mine is working great again. Watched The Bank Job and it loaded right up with no problems.

I have a question with the firmwares (btw thank you so much badboi for sending me the updates!)

I have the problem (previously reported by others) of the speaker channels being reversed with the latest firmwares

All the versions after 1.3 are giving me this problem - not with every disc, but very noticeable with certain discs such as Jesse James, Mad Men, etc... where the dialogue is mostly relegated to the rear speakers and certain background sounds are front and center.

Is anyone else having this problem with the latest firmwares (I have tried 1.4, 1.5 and both versions of 1.6)? Also, is there any fix to this? It's a big enough problem that I decided to re-install 1.3 (the last fw without this problem)...

Thanks so much for any insight!

Nope...Never had a problem with the player...Or at least I didn't think I did. When I had this problem come up with my PIO receiver and maybe my new Onkyo, I just changed the sound option in what ever disc I was playing. I THINK i remember having this same problem with PCM audio on black hawk down, and switched to DTS or what ever the other option was. IMO, it is the players fault ultimately, but never thought about it being a problem with the firmware, just thought it was because my player was not capable of "updated audio codecs"

Meet the Browns Blu-Ray.

Packing up the player tomorrow, and sending it in for a Sammy 1500.
post #1647 of 1912

I had to do that before I could get Cloverfield to play. Hopefully it will help you.
post #1649 of 1912
tried it...didn't work

Anyone else able to play "21"?
post #1650 of 1912
21 plays on my 1000, but it takes an incredibly long time to load. I did have to rinse mine off though and clean it before it would load. Until then it would give me the "disc cannot be played" message. Good luck. These things are so moody and finicky I really think they are females.
