Updating samsung blu ray player
Saw your fix, but i assumed you're an internet troll with nothing better to do than post false b.s. So I took the cover off, pulled out the brown ribbon, put it back together and now it works perfect.
It's been on now almost 3 hrs, so definitely fixed. If anyone else reads this and has a touch screen samsung bluray player that is cycling on & off, this works. That only has basic functions compared to the remote.
It was in it's mood when I checked it again.) I even formatted a second flash drive and loaded it one file at a time to see if there was an issue with fragmented files on the USB drives. The unit will go on and off incessantly for five to ten minutes, cycling below twenty seconds each phase, and then stay off for a period close to seven minutes and then tries to start up again.
Once again it goes into the cycling off and on for a couple of minutes before it once again stays off for a longer period.
I'm not entirely sure why initially both the USB port and the DVD drive weren't recognised.
However, after I both reset the system and used it a few times, eventually I got the 'full system' back, enabling me to load 'Firmware' updates and watch DVD's.
Really glad the situation finally drove me to search, ask colleagues, experts etc. You know it worked, yep only been a few hours, including watching Hamilton win the F1 World championship, brilliant all round. Chris Lynch Ps Very, very tempted to report Samsung et al for their sales of product not fit for purpose etc yeah, I know probably a complete waste if time, but all those poor sods' out there, in the dark, and given up.
Although the disconnection of the front facia lead from CN2 gives you a working BD E8500, unfortunately I've lost the use of both the USB port and the DVD Player. Still, I can watch TV, record programmes and play recordings. Just went through the procedure, documented by Finally Fixed It . Loosing the USB and the DVD Player, makes me beleive you disconnected the wrong cable. It's a very small brown cable located right behind the center of the touch panel.
The DVD was inspected before it was placed into the player (and then after the problems started, inspected once again) and it had no defects at all.
If anyone is still using your bluray to stream stuff, go get a Chromecast or Roku or something like that. My Blu Ray/3D Samsung player kept shutting off and also started shuffling through different modes on it's own. Managed to stab my finger with the screw driver, but I managed to,wha This seems to have worked. I managed to stab myself with the screwdriver, but I got it done.
My Samsung Blue ray recorder BD8900 started doing this all of a sudden while we were watching a movie on Internet. Unplugging, restarting did not help, and I knew for a fact that Samsung is gonna be hopeless. Easily unplugged the touch panel cable and problem fixed. I opened it up and disconnected that brown ribbon and now it plays perfectly. Thank Christ I gave up on Samsung and their so called tech co, namely Repair Tech, but I tried real hard, almost pleading with them to help.
I want to watch a football game tonight (TX A&M) that's gonna be on the SEC Network and remembered that's provided on the Samsung smart hub.
So I hooked up my piece of crap bluray player to see if it had magically fixed itself by being unplugged for a year. I was about to throw it in the trash, but decided to google the problem.
