Question about LG Super Blu BH200 Blu-ray and HD-DVD Player

3 Answers

LG super blue ray bh200 turns on then reads disc and turns off

Player working fine after 5-10 uses; then after inserting a new disc, and turning on the player, it booted normally, and then indicated it was "reading disc" and then switched off. I checked all  my blu ray discs, and the player acted similarly. Any suggestions? Seems like a software issue.

Unplug the blu ray for 10 minutes try again, your blu ray is definitely still covered by warranty? instead of trying to update the firmware it might be best to contact your dealer. upgrading the firmware might get rid of the warranty in some cases.

Hi
There must be a sort of mechanical timing to begin with .How does a factory start and test a unit if it has no starting point? I see a series of holes that look like the should be aligned in a given order. What is the given order, ;at the end of assembly each component should be in a spefic place ,What is that place. the problem seems mechanical.Do the easy stuff first,and work up.

    I wish I had better news, but the problem you describe is the same problem that 90% or more of the DVD and for that matter CD players we service come in with. I would say that in about 60% of cases, the problem is dust or other contamination on the laser lense. If you have just done some drywall or other such work in your home, then that is likely the problem. Also, pet hair or other debris can be on the disc when loaded (especially if you have kids), and if it falls off and lands on the lense, that too can cause problems. The other most common things are a bad spin motor, (if you can, put your ear to the unit while it says "LOADING" and you should hear the disc spinning.) If the disc does spin up, and it is not dust, then it is likely a bad laser, and usually, the cost of replacing the laser makes repair not economical. You could try buying a laser cleaning disc, but I find they don't work well, and you should not take the DVD player apart yourself if you are not a tech, as the laser can damage your eyes. My advise would be to call around to local repair shops to find one that has a the lowest bench fee to diagnose the unit, and have it checked. Since it is so difficult to make a living repairing consumer electronics these days, because of the low replacement cost, you may even find a shop that will check the unit free of charge!

Toy Story 3 will not play on my Blue Ray player all other blue ray disk's work fine.


Have you updated your Blu-Ray player recently? All BD players need to be updated from time to time because of the growing technology of Blu-Ray. Its always been a con of BD players. Best thing to do is have your player connect to the internet.
I hope this is the back of your player. Connect your Cat5 (Ethernet cable) to your BD player and than to your router or modem. The port should look like this on the back of your player.

Once you have this connected start your player and it will have a option in the menu to update. Once the update is complete Toy Story 3 and all new BD discs should work. If not, its possible that the disc is bad. More often you just need to update the player.

My lg superblue bh200 will not play the princess and the frog and toy story on blue ray but plays all of my other movies fine. All it does is ask for the language and then goes black.


Hi. I have Toy Story on the Lg bd 560 bluray and discovered the same thing. There are two ways that you can get it to play. Go to factory reset in the menu. This is called initialize software on my player. It should now play without any problems. The only trouble is that if you turn off your player and back on again, it will not work until you do another factory reset. The easiest way to solve the problem is to disconnect your internet connection[no more factory resets required]. For some reason this movie does not like the internet being connected on my bluray player. I have told LG Australa about the problem and they will probably fix it in another firmware update. All the best.

Just installed a LG WH08LS20 in my computer, everytime I put in a Blu-Ray disc the computer freezes up. Any ideas?


The exact same thing happens to me. It reads Blu-Rays, burns DVDs fine, but when I put in a blank Blu Ray disc to burn, it freezes. As soon as I open the tray, the computer continues as normal as though nothing happened. I can't find anything on what is going on.

LG super blu player won't play blu ray disc


Have you updated the firmware on it? I had a similar problem with a Sony blu-ray player and I had to download an update and burn it on to a CD then allow the CD to update the blu-ray player. What's the model number of your player, I may be able to get a link to the update for you.
