Wont power on

I have had the dvd player for only a few months, and suddenly it will not even power on. I have tried unplugging it and leaving it unplugged for a day and then plugging it back in, and it still won't power on. Any suggestions??

Re: wont power on

Hi all

I had a similar problem with Coby dvd 7500 the screen was faint almost black but could hear the movie sound. I cleaned the lens as suggested but it didnt resolve the problem.

I tired to rest the player by removing the power supply cord and the battery for 30 mins as suggested in the manual but that also didnt work. What I did was leave the player without battery and the power cord overnight and it did start working in the morning!!

This worked for me and hope works for you guys too...

All the best.

Re: wont power on

Did you have a power surge or anything that could short it out. can you use a multimeter, can you test the unit your self. if so test the voltage through the power board. and through the fuse it might have blown. its all on the board that the plug in goes to when you open the case if its that new dlont do this take it back you will void the warrenty if you tamper with it.

My LG blu ray 3-D dvd player just stopped working. all it says is boot. I unpluged it but still just says boot. It was working fine. Now it wont turn on at all just says boot, its said boot for the pa

My LG 670 also said 'boot' after a upgrade attempt and appeared stuck there. I searched LG support for a factory reset option, which is: Disconnect the LG power cable from the wall / power stripHold down the power button the front of the player for 30 secondsRe-insert the power cordTurn the player back on. Note: my player showed 'boot' again for a few minutes, then shut off. When I turned it on again, it went through the normal power up cycle, then shut itself off (weird). I turned it on again. So far, so good.

I am getting sound from the DVD but no picture. I

I've fought with this for a while and finally figured it out. I recall another piece of hardware that would perform some sort of auto reset when it was unplugged so I tried it and it worked! I don't mean just hitting the power button, I mean crawling down on your hands and knees to follow the power cord from the back of the dvd player to the wall/power strip. Unplug it, wait a few seconds and plug it back in. BAM! All fixed.

This may sound overly simple but try disconnecting the power from the unit (i.e. unplug it from the wall), wait a few minutes and plug it back in, kinda like a hard re-boot.
