some Apps not working on Blu Ray player BD-C5500

by BP2U / August 31, 2010 11:30 AM PDT

Hey guys and gals,

I got this sweet Labor Day deal on the 42" 720p plasma and I love it. The Blu-ray player BD-C5500 is great, and I've got it synced to the wifi and have setup the apps account as well as logged into the apps.

But when I go to actually run the apps (like Facebook, Twitter, mostly) they just give me an error message that says I need to create a user account first.

Any ideas?

Our Netflix account works find, as well as Pandora, USA Today, weather, etc.

There seemed to be a couple firmware updates the first few times I started up - and Facebook was one of the updates, from what I could tell watching the progress.

Thanks for your help!

fixed??

Well, I'm an idiot. I should've searched more threads before posting.

Turns out that when you're on the main apps page you have to first click the little "A" red button and login BEFORE you click on the app icon. This is after you've already set up the app ID *and* the facebook profile (login/pass).

Hope that helps someone in the same situation,

Twitter App

I have similar problem with Twitter app on Panasonic DMP-BD65 Blu-Ray player. Mine doesn't even give the option to try and log in. My Twitter app says "coming soon". I have checked repeatedly and my firmware is the latest available. We've had the Blu-Ray player for a few months now. Since the Twitter app is "coming soon", I would think it should have "arrived" by now. Another app does the same thing but I am not worried about that one. Fox Sports, I believe.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
