BD-P1600 "No Signal"

by mjordan82 / January 1, 2010 5:42 AM PST

Well, I was watching a Blu-Ray disk for the first time on my new BD-P1600 player. It's not connected to the internet, and I don't plan on upgrading the firmware unless I have a problem. However, it seems that it's determined to find the internet. A grey screen came up from the opening menu saying "No Signal", and it would flash some static about every 10 seconds while I watched the movie "Ironman". How do I tell it not to try to find the internet? I have no ethernet in my living room. Do I have to buy the wireless dongle to make the message stop? Will it then update the firmware, and lock itself up? Is it possible to just watch DVD's and Blu-Rays without accessing the internet?

mjordan82,

I haven't seen this issue posted about before. I'll send this over to our Blu-Ray expert, and see if I can get an answer on that. In the meantime, see if you can try changing the network connection (wired/wireless) in the Networking menu.

Keep me posted.

Tried that

I tried changing the wired/wireless setting. Of course, my Blu-Ray isn't connected to either. I didn't notice any change. I have found out that when I watch my IMAX movies, everything is fine. When I watched "Star Trek", it would still occasionally flash a few frames of noise every 10 to 15 seconds. However, I didn't get the "No Signal" message. I think that was directly related to the "Iron Man" movie.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
