SOURCE: blue ray player wont play a new disk says it needs

Software updates have to be done on bluray players whenever the technology in bluray discs themselve is changed. If you call the number for 20th century fox on the back of the bluray a representative there will explain to you what has changed technologically in this bluray that has caused there to be software updates for all of the bluray players. I believe LG can send you a disc so that you can update your player. Give them a call. The bluray players are all manufactured and shipped to the stores. In the meantime if an update is needed and its sitting on the shelf at the store until you buy it, even if you've just bought it an hour ago it will still need to be updated. The stores do not unbox the blu ray players and update them for you. However the Geek squad will update bluray players for customers for a fee.

SOURCE: We have a LG Blue-Ray

Are you talking about the wireless security password that allows you to establish a wireless connection? Or, are you talking about the CIFS login and password that allows you to see shared folders on your computer.

If you can't establish a wireless connection, try changing the type of security you currently have set up on your router. For example, if you are using WPA, try switching to WEP and see if you can then connect the BD570 to the router. As a last option, you could try turning off all security (for a brief time, of course) and see if the BD570 will connect to your router.

If you are having the dreaded CIFS login and password problem (and you are using a Win7 computer), uninstall Windows Live Login-Assistant and Windows Live Essential 2011. Both programs interfere with the ability to use CIFS file sharing on the BD570.

M lg bp145 quit playing blue rays but it will play dvds. Why?

Blue ray DVD's are read by a Blue violet LASER. I know that sounds pretty obvious but the colour blue is closer to the upper end of the spectrum and therefore has a shorter frequency and therefore you can generate and read much narrower data tracks. DVD's and CD use an older technology and use Red laser light which has a much wider and therefore less compact track size. So with a lower track density you get less information on a DVD.

The blue laser can be used to read both formats (and CD) but when reading the Blue ray disc the accuracy required is far greater to hit the track. Tracking errors caused by worn gears steppers and spindles can cause the Blue ray to miss the track but still have enough tolerance to read the much wider DVD/CD track.

The laser head isn't one laser, it actually produces two separate wavelengths, one for Blu ray discs and one for Red ray (DVD/CDs)

You can have a condition where the "blue-violet Laser diode fails but the red laser diode is still working. In this condition, it will exhibit exactly the effect you are experiencing.

My blue ray player LG BP620 keeps freezing

Same problem here. BP620 freezes up randomly. I have to unplag and wait. Then it freezes up again as the film progresses. I did a factory rollback and disabled wifi. Things are working much better. Very Strange ! I will call LG tomorrow and will return this BlueRay player if they don't have a fix on this problem.

How do I program a Philips Universal Remote to operate my LG LRA 516 DVD Recorder?

The only code I could find was 0392. Press and hold the setup button until the red indicator light stays on, then release the setup button. Press the desired button in your case it would be VCR/ DVD. The red indicator light should blink then stay lit. Enter the four digit code 0392. If it was a valid code the indicator light should go off. It should work if its a good code.

Just bought a LG BD370 but it is playing DVD's in black and white. What may be the problem?

Try this is it may help to view DVD in Color

On the back of your DVD player you will find 3 cables one white, one yellow and one red these are also connected to the back of your TV. Keep one end connected to your DVD player and disconnect them from the back of your TV and reconnect them to the plugs on the front of your TV.

All The best
