SOURCE: my LG combo player recorder will not read netflix dvd's

I had the same problem.
1. check that the disk region is the same as you unit ( it is the global of the world on the CD has a number in the middle, now check the back of your player. They must be same region.
2. Turn the unit on
3.Press the power button and hold for 10 Seconds
3. Turn the unit back on, wait for the time to display.
4. unplug the unit and leave unpluged for 30 seconds
5. plug the unit back in and turn it on, the time should not display should be blank.
6. Unit should go into startup wizard like it is being started for the the very first time. follow the prompts.
7. In the setup menue, I believe it is under disc settings, select set to factory settings.

Once I completed these, I put the netflix movie back in and it now runs,

Hope the same works for you

Is this unit wireless configured


The LG BD550 lacks both Wi-Fi and DLNA compatibility. It can stream Netflix, Vudu, Pandora, and YouTube over Ethernet (via cat 5 or cat 6 cable).

Netflix on my samsung smart tv is asking for an update


To clarify the issue, as we are having the same problem, when you go into the "smart"hub and select Netflix, the app gives a message that an update is needed. It says to go into Menu -> Support -> Update -> Online. However, the option to update is not available so Netflix is now unusable on the Samsung TV. I never have these issues with our AppleTV. If anyone discovers how to fix this, please let me know. I have already tried doing a factory reset to reload Netflix. It didn't work.

Error message when my Blue Rays reads dvds


It's a software issue. you need to ring the manufacturer to get files and instructions on how to upgrade your machine so it can play the newer blu ray movies. Quite a common problem.

I have two tablets that for some reason wont let me watch movies on them can you help me


Make sure that you have a good Internet connection and next try updating the Netflix app. They've been releasing updates every couple of weeks because of reported problems such as the issue that you're currently experiencing.

If that fails, totally remove the Netflix app and then re install it.

How do i make it all regions i cant play dvds from u.s.a. is there a code i can put in and make it into a multi regions blu ray player.


I read a little in the user manual of your player and found this options:

DVD Rating
Blocks playback of rated DVD based on their
content. (Not all discs are rated.)

[Rating 1-8]
Rating one (1) has the most restrictions and
rating eight (8) is the least restrictive.
[Unlock]
If you select [Unlock], parental control is not
active and the disc plays in full.

Maybe this is your problem. This can be found on page 28 of the english manual.

If this doesn't help, try do update your firmware:

http://www.lg.com/us/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=BD550&initialTab=drivers&targetPage=support-product-profile#

go to the tab: drivers and software - Firmware update for BD550/ BD570/ BD590

follow the steps in the PDF file to upgrade your firmware for the Player.

If this doesn't solve your problem, you should contact the LG support.


I hope this was helpful

Need to solve the Problem with LG BD550 and Avatar Extended Collectors Edition! Please help!


This player has some sort of memory shortage when running HD-DTS movies like Avatar Extended. Follow these steps to run the movie:

1. Update the software from your LG BD550 by connecting on internet and downloading the last available software version.

2. Reboot LG BD550

3. Check if software update was done successfully.

4. Insert a memory stick or pen drive in LG BD550 with at least 2 Mb available.

5. Insert Avatar Blu-Ray disk in LG BD550.

NOTE: From the time disk is inserted and starts to run, a message saying "for better performance consult a website blablabla" and just after 1 minute the film menu will be shown. If this does not work, reboot LG BD550 with the pen drive connected to it and try it again. Remember to be patience!

:o)

I had the same problem with film "The GodFather" and probably there are more films out there in HD-DTS which can have the same problem.

Have fun!

1. Remove any floppy disk from the floppy disk drive, then turn on the
