i have sent this 3 times now something is not working properly.....!!!its a samsung htc500d.No it doesn't display anything just makes some noises and says cannot play please check disk!

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.
Dave,
I just got the model number info and I'm afraid samsung htc500d seems incorrect number, can you please recheck?
Also, how old is the sound system?
Thanks.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

sorry its HT-C5500D its about 5 to 6 years old

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.
Thanks Dave info.
- Have you tried to clean the laser lens in unit with lens cleaning disc?
If not yet, please put lens cleaning disc in unit and play it to clean the lens and check.
If it doesn't help then it seems laser block is failing and requires replacement which will cost good money if laser block still available with Samsung parts and alternately you can get a stand alone bluray player, connect it into HDMI input of TV and hook its sound/ audio output to HT-C5500D optical input to get sound, new bluray player would be available around 50~60 Pounds and will save you to take this unit to repair shop etc.
I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.

I have had this problem from it been new i contacted currys and they said it may need updating i don't know how to do this only been odd blu ray but just bought this 4 film set and cannot play it

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.
I understand and my answer is based on your reply where it said "it doesn't display anything just makes some noises and says cannot play please check disk!"
However, you may please check following Samsung link to download firmware upgrade file or connect the bluray player to internet through Ethernet cable in LAN port of player and hook it to your modem then run Network setup to establish internet connection and check software update option in player menu so it can get software update from Samsung through modem...
