Stopped playing Blur Ray movies altogether

scrubsonskates, CNET

  • Summary: Very disappointed in Samsung and how they seem to have abandoned the purchasers of this model Blue Ray player. I bought two Blue Ray players from Samsung. The first the bd-p1400 still works. I also have a 52" inch Samsung LCD TV that I got at the same time as the bd-p1400. I've had no problem with the TV which is why I bought the second blue ray player. Now I'm beginning to re-think any loyalty to the Samsung brand.
  • Pros: It still plays DVDs, if that's could be considered a pro.
  • Cons: Doesn't play Blue ray movies at all anymore even though it was hardly ever used.

Doesnt play BluRay's

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 September 2010
  • Summary: The unit is outdated and discontinued. I purchased this unit based on the TV connections and user ratings across various sites. Out of the box the unit would only play DVD's, as this is my first BluRay, I only had the Resident Evil Trilogy that I purchased at the same time to test it with. It wouldn't play any of them. So, I borrowed the new Trek hoping it would work.... nope....

Wish I could give it ZERO stars - 20% of reviewers HATE this product

L. Bolick, Amazon

  • Summary: As with several of the reviews listed here, mine will start with, "It worked great until..." Though I can tailor that to, "It worked GREAT...for 4 DVDs." Bought this to go with a new Samsung LN46A550 and, as stated, was delighted by what I saw and heard. Played the first disc of Lost Season 4, Hell Boy II, Encounters at the End of the World and WALL-E and raved to friends and family about how great things were.

Worked one time

  • Summary: Got this as a Christmas gift for the family. At first the picture was great--watched Sleeping Beauty in Blu Ray and it had the clearest picture. After that, anytime the player went to spin up a disc the picture turned purple, and the signal cut out for a few seconds before coming back on. I tried this player with two different HDMI cables and had this same result. Updated the firmware via Ethernet and reset to factory default settings per Samsung with the same results.

Stay Away From This Player!!!

Steven Hampton, Amazon

  • Summary: The player worked for 15 minutes then nothing. Would not play any disk after that. Also, player was very hot to touch on the bottom. Tried everything to restore, nothing worked. I have read many problems with this player. I would not buy at any price. Buy the names you know are good at this time, Blu-ray is still coming together.

  • Summary: I bought this in August and now three months later it is being repaired. It stops playing in the middle of audio CDs. It will not play some standard DVDs. Also, the unit runs very, very, VERY hot! Burnt my arm as lifted it out of the cabinet. Samsung repaired this unit and it is working now.

Worked for 2 weeks, then stopped recognizing discs

R. Waddell, Amazon
10 November 2008
  • Summary: Our experience was that Amazon's delivery was wonderful, it was easy to set up, it seemed like a good choice for both regular DVDs and Blu-Ray, until a couple of days ago when it stopped recognizing discs other than Blu-Ray . . . it wouldn't even accept the disc we created to try to update the firmware (downloaded from Samsung website) to see if that would help. Since we didn't buy it to only be able to view Blu-Ray, we're returning it.

Disappointed

Richard G. Shaffer "Dawg Fan", Amazon
2 November 2008
  • Summary: The blue ray DVD player worked absolutely great with blue ray movies. However, it would not play any other typeof DVD or CD except blue ray even though it was hooked up properly. I contacted Samsung and they finally decided it need a "firmware update". Since I have dial-up, I did not want to try to download the update, so they sent it to me on a CD - which took nearly two weeks to arrive. Guess what, it would not read their update CD either.

Beautiful picture, rarely got sound

Ron Misfeldt, Amazon
1 November 2008
  • Summary: I had this product for a total of 6 days. The very first day, right out of the box I had problems with lack of audio when using the HDMI hook-up. I thought maybe it was a bad DVD, because I didn't seem to have the same trouble with Blu Ray. Every time I tried to use the player for a DVD, I wouldn't get audio, I would have to restart the player and try again. On day six, I started having the same trouble with Blu Ray discs.
