BD-P1600 won't play the Hangover after firmware update

by ryperry13 / July 6, 2010 9:02 AM PDT

After updating by BD-P1600 player to firmware version 2.09, Im finding that it will not play the Hangover anymore. I can view the previews but it locks up while loading the menu. Ive had the player for less than a year and never had a problem with it until this upgrade. Is there any place that has copies of older firmware that I might be able to install since it was working fine previously?

Last night after talking to the Samsung 'Help' chat person (who was no help). I figured out how to downgrade the firmware even though that was deemed to be impossible by Samsung.

First I with the unit on and no disc, I held down the FF for 5 seconds until teh language menu shows up. Then hit 1. Then I put a USB thumb drive with the 2.07 firmware in it in the player. (I got the firmware here http://findfiles.com/list.php?string=BEv2.07_100315_BDP3600_XAA.zip&size=76068681&db=Mirrors ). It ran through the install process and then all the discs that the 2.09 firmware killed started working just fine. Hope this help others and prevents you from having to send your player in for a $150 service that appears to be unneeded. This was on a BD-P3600.

The Hangover worked after I downgraded the firmware, but who knows what problems I'll run into next? Is there another update coming?
