I've got another model (HT-J5530) but the same issue. I'm not using Automatic firmware updates but I think that somekind of firmware (Virus?) was downloaded form Internet. There is no other explanation
Same here, I turned off updates a while back because the updates were making my players PC connection un-usable. But while watching Amazon on my BD yesterday it started making horrible audio noises and freezing up. Today, it wont stay on for more than 5 seconds then reboots ....forever.
I've got two of these same models in my household, and they both started having the same problem within a couple days off each other. Definitely something coming through the internet connection.
Same, BD-JM57C stopped working. Samsung customer support told me it had to be serviced by them, and completely shut down all questions about how and why it happened and if they will figure out a solution.
