My UPC for ERASERHEAD is 1551 12571. Good or no - anybody?

I believe the UPC on the sticker is identical to the originally printed one, except for a '0' added at the end.

A little update to indicate that B&N were indeed shipping the corrected second printing of the disc; the UPC on their site was the updated one, but it's always nice to have the physical object in hand to confirm this.

Buyers who look for this in stores and know about the mistake on the first pressing might be confused by the fact that the cardboard box says "First printing" although the BD itself identifies it as the second one. It would probably have been cost prohibitive to have a whole new run of packaging made.

No chapters and timeline as previously reported, but there are partial workarounds. You can still jump to a point in the film if you know the precise or approximate time point you are looking for (I used it to go check that the problematic black screen had been corrected), while "Resume playing" works with this title. These functions, particularly the second one, are sometimes not possible on some discs.

The image quality looks sensational. I am really looking forward to watching the whole movie, which I haven't seen in nearly three decades.

I'm about to send some brown ones in as well, does the corrected Eraserhead disc say Second Printing on it? (No additional sticker on the shrinkwrap backside, B&N store-bought.)

The back of the case will most likely still say "First printing" - even on the corrected version.

To find out - check the disc itself. It should say Second Printing on the disc - right before it says 89 minutes.

Thanks, thought that might be the case. The black/blank section started at 01:05:52. Off it goes.

A little interesting note...I got my copy of Eraserhead today thinking I've received the second printing, yet on the back cover it says "First printing 2014." It's not until I opened it and checked the disc did it say second printing. Might be confusing perhaps for some consumers wondering if they're getting the first or the second pressing.

Bought this today, read these comments regarding the glitch, became depressed. My depression was eased by your post. Indeed, my copy has "First Printing" on the cover, but "Second Printing" on the disc. Whew.
