I am from Sydney Australia. My bluray home theater was working well but the next day, when I turned it on from the remote control, the home menu did not come up but instead it went to BD-DVD mode and did a LOAD that kept on going until the display showed STOP. That's it, it Stopped. No button on the remote would work after that except the Power on/off button. i turn it Off but it does the same thing when I turn on. I can open the tray if I press the Open/Close button on the remote from an Off position. Tried placing a disc but it tries to LOAD but then goes to a STOP. Have read the thread on the loop problem in the US and it is exactly the same problem. However, when I called the Samsung Australia number and talked to Customer Support guy Kevin, he said he was not aware of the problem. Instead, he said that because my bluray is a 2012 model and have been used a lot, while he believes it is a firmware issue, I could take it to Samsung's service centre but I have to shoulder the repair costs. He does not believe Samsung updates caused the problem and it simply broke down after many years out of warranty operation. i wonder if I am the only one in Australia experiencing this.
