I HAVE A LG HT506 DVD PLAYER AND WHEN I PLAY ANY DVD IT PLAYS FOR A SHORT TIME THEN THE PICTURE FREEZES . IF I LEAVE IT FOR A SHORT WHILE IT STARTS PLAYING AGAIN THEN FREEZES ONCE AGAIN CAN YOU HELP...


By your description it sounds like the DVD player needs to be cleaned. You can purchase a CD/DVD cleaner at most places like Walmart, Target, or Radio Shack.

Try cleaning it first. If that doesn't work, it will probably have to be repaired by a professional, if it's not under warranty.

Good luck!

Wont stop reading "no disc" on the display even


If it will play a CD but not a DVD then it could be the Laser is failing. If it won't play either then its more than likely that the Laser has failed.

First thing though is to try cleaning it with a Lens Cleaning DVD.

If after this it still won't recognized a DVD you need to remove the Main Cover followed by the DVD Tray cover. You can then clean the lens directly with some lens cleaner fluid and a QTip. Make sure you only use a little cleaner fluid and wipe off with a dry QTip. Do not touch the lens with your fingers.

After you've reassembled the unit if you still have the same fault then the Laser has failed and would require replacing, although this is not normally cost effective.


Please leave feedback

DVD'S hang up


I have a similar problem.  After a seemingly random length of time, the counter on the display freezes and I cannot pause, stop or eject the DVD.  I can change volume, change function, etc but nothing useful.  The only way I can get the disc out it to turn the whole thing off and then back on.  Sometimes even this doesn't work first time...

I went to a Sony shop and they said I could have it looked at, but they charge £45 just to have a look!  Not sure it's worth it as I only paid a little over £200 for it.

Unit automatically switches off


Maybe all you need is to dust off the DVD player's pickup. I have had this happen several times with several players. After dusting the pickup, those players are still in service.

Bad Disc


If you sure that the system supports the disc's format, the disc is clean, and its the right region.. try to clean the DVD lens. DVD lens cleaning discs: Every CD, stereo equipment, department, discount, store - and even sidewalk venders - carries CD lens cleaning discs. Are they of any value? Can they cause damage? I generally don't consider CD lens cleaning discs to be of much value for preventive maintenance since they may just move the crud around. However, for pure non-greasy dust (no tobacco smoke and no cooking grease), they may not hurt and could even do a good enough job to put off a proper cleaning for a while longer. However, it's also possible they will ruin the lens. Consider that the worst thing to do to a precision optical surface is to wipe it with a dry cloth as this is likely to scratch the surface as it rubs the dust over it. To the lens, a speck of dust is like a boulder. Once the lens is scratched, replacement of the entire optical pickup is the only remedy. And, since there are absolutely no sorts of standards for these things, it is possible for a really poorly designed cleaning disc to damage the lens even if the dust itself is non-abrasive. In addition, if the cleaning disc doesn't look like a CD to the optical pickup or disc-in sensor, the lens it may not even spin. So, the drawer closes, the drawer opens, and NOTHING has been accomplished! (But at least no damage will be done.) As if this isn't enough, NEVER put one into a high-X CDROM (DVD player or DVDROM drive). The high speed rotation may cause the cleaning disc and/or player/drive to self destruct. And, don't try a cleaning disc on an automotive CD player that sucks in the disk - it will get stuck.

DVD won't play


Is this happens on every disc? The NO PLAY message appears when "The disc that this unit cannot play is loaded (from the user guide)". Maybe it's something to do with the DVD region?
