Hope this helps
New to this but here goes:
Just had same problem with my samsung ( different model )
I do not normally have player connected to internet so would not have updated automatically,
I connected and went through upgrade procedure.
This appears at first test to have solved problem.
Disc does not meet specifications
I had this problem and the old standby of power cycling did the trick. I have all the upgrades but I had a regular DVD in beforehand, so perhaps that caused the problem. The darn thing is finiky.
same with BD-D7000
I am using both Samsung model BD 6500 & 7000 and strangely the same problem lies only with the 7000. Power reset works but only after long wait of sometimes up to an hour(both with latest firmware updates). This is really frustrating and I hope there is a solution soon.
When a title fails, it has to be reported to the BR player
If folk don't report failed titles, then there is no reason for the player maker to look into it.
In the USA it's 1800SAMSUNG
When it happens, it happens with every Blu-Ray disc..
When it works, it works...
This is why it is so frustrating.
This is a hardware problem.
Problem solved after authorised repair. This has nothing to do with the disc or the firmware. Now all discs play well and other than this unfortunate hickup. The Bd7000 is an exceptional blu-ray 3D player.
How to fix it Samsung Blu Ray player disc issues.
I had the same error, disc does not meet specifications and Cannot play disc. What I thought was awkward is that I could play a standard DVD, but not a blu ray movie. I had no issues for a year and then all of sudden. Different blu ray discs gave different errors. Being an IT director for a school I decided I was going to open it up and take a look. I took the cover off first, next the front bezel, watch out for the zero insertion ribbon cable that hooks the bezel to the unit. Now I unscrewed the blu ray drive from the the chassis and unplugged 2 more zero insertion ribbon cables. Next I took the blu ray drive and unscrewed the cover and popped it off. Now I could look at the laser lens. To my surprise there is two, one for DVD's and one for Blu ray's. This explains why it plays DVD's and not blu ray's. Took some glass cleaner on a Q-tip and cleaned both lenses. The blu ray lense is very small and won't take much debris or dust to make it start messing up, cheap! now I reversed the process and put it back together. All discs that were giving me errors now read perfect and load very fast.
I'm guessing because of the small lense and lack of protection that this issue is very common with Samsung units.
Hope this article helps someone, because I had problems finding solutions when I started searching for answers.
Easy fix, follow SchoolIT's instructions!
I was having the same issues (also some other disc read errors, etc.) and opened my player to get access to the lasers. Quick swipe with a q-tip, cleaner, and a shot of canned air and it runs like new! (I only had to take my metal player cover off and then two screws on the drive cover inside.)
