Samsung just released a new firmware update for our trusty (?) old player. Hopefully it allows us to run Avatar without problems. I'm waiting till others report how it works, but it's available if you want to check it out.

Click on the firmware tab or update via internet connection.

I may have to try this as my bdp-1400 is basically bricked as it is now for bd and so is used as a bedroom dvd player. In order to play a bd you must insert it into the tray and power off the bd player then you must power it on and wait for the entire loading process. After you do this like 8 or 10 times it may finally recognize the bd (any and all bd) This may take close to 30 min - who is waiting that long? Never has a problem with dvd though. I had pretty much given up on it but with a new FW maybe i will regain some functionality.

Good luck! This is why I cannot ever recommend a Samsung BD player.

Ditto! Also,,,,,only do a fw update if it is absolutely necessary. In JK's case it sounds like it be necessary. Just because an update is available does not mean your machine needs it.

Very true Oblio - my sony bdp-s550 which was it's replacement is still running whatever firmware came out of the box and has played everything including Avatar.

I posted it because without the 2.3 avatar blu ray won't play. So either you have to revert back to 2.1 (which had issues) and it will play Avatar. Stay with 2.2 which has been working very well, but not for Avatar. Or get brave and install 2.3, be able to play Avatar but unknown results for other blu rays.

Hope anyone installing 2.3 posts back so we can see how it does.

Don't mistake our frustration with Samsung BD players as a reason not to post these firmware updates Clearday. Providing this link is great and thank you for posting it. :thumbsup:

Hopefully Samsung got their act together on this update and it solves some of the issues for people who were unfortunate enough to have bought this player.

Can someone please verify if the latest firmware 2.3 - 100422 is NOT compatible with the movie AMELIA (2009) Blue-Ray with Richard Gere, It is causing the TIMELINE POP-UP problems throughout the movie

Hopefully I am not the only one with this problem.
