"PLEASE WAIT" Message for LG DVD Players

After scouring the internet for solutions to the LG "PLEASE WAIT" issue, I can't find a solution except on this site. I have had the unit unplugged for approximately a week and completed the power cycling. The solution that I found was to hit the "micro-button" after removing the front cover. I can't seem to find this micro-button. Can someone assist me? I actually have the LG XBR446. Thanks

You haven't given the exact model number ot your LG DVD, so I can only give you a general solution to this problem.
Get into its meny, surf through, come to SYSTEM adjust window, change the system. If a NTSC system recorded disc played with PAL system adjustment with DVD, there will be only black/white pciture, and vice versa.
Adjust it to the color system thathave been adopted your country. this must solve the problem. OK.

No turn on but a message on the display. The message is PLEASE WAIT


This message is displayed when the device is checking for its hard drive and DVD drive to signal back that they are operational. You can consider this a bit like the BIOS of a computer as it is waiting for its devices to come back with a "READY" signal. If "PLEASE WAIT" is scrolling across your screen for a really long time it could mean that the two devices with moving parts (HDD / DVD) may be having an issue coming up. UNPLUG unit from wall. Wait for some time (5 min) and then plug it back in. If your device is still not working then you have either a bum HDD or a bum DVD. Considering which one is working all the time (HDD) you probably have a dead hard drive, but my own unit's DVD drive went nuts, so that is also a potential source of the problem.

Either way, your local computer repair store can have a look at this issue, considering what the unit is is basically a single purpose PC

My LG RH278 just says Please Wait when I start it but nothing happens.

Had same problem on sameLG unit. Found a Sony blog with same issue described and solution was a blown capacitor on the power supply circuit. Opened my unit and sure enough there was a bulging cap. Replaced it and starts up like normal. 90c repair. 53c88b9.jpg6643815.jpg

LG DR-4810 DVD Displays " PLEASE WAIT"

to open the tray during "please wait", remove casing then loosen front panel (clips either side and underneath). Power up to get "please wait", then press small microswitch in bottom right corner of the DVD player unit. Have you tried resetting the unit (turning on and holding the power button for at least 5-10 seconds)? Have you tried unplugging the unit for a longer period of time (24 hours)? get your firmware upgrade through here(sorry its in german, you might be able to get an english of it through the LG site) - two cd's- bootloader.iso , update.iso Good luck
