LG bd650 blu-ray dvd player setup menu will not appear

I have a problem with a LG bd650 blu-ray dvd player i have a small "Render" Tv and it worked fine untill today... When I power it up, I see the LG logo and loading then nothing, no menu just the blue screen of the TV, it has a HDMI slot that i used and tryed with the 3, red, yellow, white cables. Power off and on but still nothing. It may be posible that somebody removed a USB memory stick while the movie was paused.

SOURCE: 42LG50 TV - Intermittant sound problems with blu-ray HDMI input

You say this doesn't happen on regular cable or when playing a regular DVD. Hmm. Is this Blu-Ray player connected by simplink? HDMI is a bi-directional format cable, so  there are cases in setups where your tv can send commands to your blu-ray player and vice versa. It could be a problem with your blu-ray player that it is sending for some odd reason a mute command to your tv. Or is processing a command that your TV interprets to be a mute command when playing blu-rays. Because if it was the TV itself chances are you'd see this when watching a normal DVD or on cable as well. Since you say you're not, it leads me to believe the issue lies with the blu-ray player itself.

SOURCE: i tried to load the film 2012 on my LG BD370 BLU

First you need to update firmware to v3.886.01 THEN update to LG_BD_370M_UPG_LG_V7163 which can be found on the LG drivers section http://www.lg.com/uk/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=BD370&initialTab=documents

SOURCE: When i try to play a Blue Ray DVD, the LG LCD tv

Pickled! You did right by checking the cables, the tv inputs and as well the output on the blue ray...even by replacing the blue ray. Which leads to a problem within the tv monitor. I can only guess there is something in the software of the tv that is causing the problem. I can only suggest two options. If can connect the tv to a network via CAT5 cable, you can do a frimware update to the tv. Sort of like a software update. If it is not available, try to swap the HDMI cable for the 5 RCA component video. It will still carry HD signal, just not as crisp as the HDMI. I would be floored if the same thing happened with the component cable.

Lg bd650 won't play blu-ray but everything else.


The laser pickup unit [optical pickup unit] to your Blu-ray player is faulty. It will be very difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. Contact the nearest authorised service center for LG to get it repaired.

I have an LG BD650 player that it's not able to play divx videos because "video format not supported." The specs of the player indicate otherwise.


I had the same problem with certain .avi files. I did a lot of research and found a program called "FourCC Changer". You can google it and download it for free. Open the file that doesn't work and change the "fourcc" to "xvid". Once I did that, the .avi files played without a problem. I hope this works for you. Good luck!

Does somebody know how to make the LG RCT689H region free. It's a dvd Rewrittable, does someboady has expierience.


Access the DVD setup menu by turning on the unit without a DVD in the drive.

Press simultaneously the "arrow down" button on the right side of the DVD recorder and the "clear" button on the remote control simultaneously for about six seconds to access the options menu.

Use sideways arrow keys on remote control to navigate to OP6. Set value of option to "8F" (for region free) and press "enter" on remote control to save changes.

When message saying "save ok" appears press "menu/list" on remote control to exit options menu. The unit will reboot and is now able to play any DVD.

I have a VL470M and am trying to connect a LGBD570 Blu-Ray through HDMI. It works fine through the composite input, but the HDMI says "no signal". Am I doing something wrong?


There are two possible issues. 1) The resolutions are mismatched. (output of the player and input of the TV) 2) the player can not confirm that the TV supports HDCP over the HDMI connection. Only 3 of the 4 HDMI ports are HDCP (high def copy protection) compatible.

Try a different HDMI port and make sure that you have the input set to the correct HDMI port. (There is an input button on the side of the TV as well as on the remote.)

The easiest things to check are turn off the Blu-Ray player and then turn it on again. Then press the Home button and navigate to the Setup Menu. Select Display and press the right arrow button, then select Resolution and press Enter. Then set the desired resolution and press Enter to confirm the selection. (Your TV should support 1080p from the Blu-ray player.) Then turn off the player since changing the resolution can lead to video issues.

I hope this helps.

My blu-ray player can't read my Avatar disc but all my other blu-ray dics work.


Go into the player's menu and disable BD-Live, then try again. I have an LG player so I can't help you with the Pioneer's setup menu. However, BD-Live is a feature on most if not all players so it's in your setup menu somewhere.
By the way, I experience the same issue with the Date Night disk. Now that I've disabled BD-Live I don't have the problem.
