Bd550 doesn't read dvd

Hello my LG bd550 player doesn't read DVDs: the 'error' message appears on the display and the player ejects the disc. The problem started a month ago when I inserted in the player an original DVD just bought (in the past months everything worked fine with the other DVDs I have). From that moment on, no DVD can be read by the player. Any suggestion? Thanx in advance

SOURCE: LG RH289H DVD Recorder Unknown Disc. Please check disc again.

I have had the same problem a few times. All I do is eject and re-insert the disk until it recognises it, this seemed to work for me

SOURCE: Stops Playing: screen freezes

My friend suggested I clean the dvd optical reader lens inside the player with a fine brush (like a camera brush with a blower bulb). This seemed to help immensely. I'm not certain if this is just a temporary fix, but it seems to be ok so far.

SOURCE: Disc Error when I try to play a dvd LG DP781

Hi,

Sounds like either a dirty or weak laser/lens. Pls try cleaning with a CD disc cleaner or manually using cotton buds (if the eye is accessible).

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Get into the Service Menu by entering 1397139 on the remote control like you did before and restore the original factory-set values stored in flash-memory back the way they were. One you do this your unit will function properly again. mikeadams110@yahoo.com

Error message when my Blue Rays reads dvds


It's a software issue. you need to ring the manufacturer to get files and instructions on how to upgrade your machine so it can play the newer blu ray movies. Quite a common problem.

Buy a DVD cleaning kit follow the instructions, sometimes brings it back to life. If no change! the assembly will need to be replaced,"not cost effective" cheaper to replace.

I'm trying to change the region code on my LG 550 blu ray...instead of region 0-9 it has letters do anyone knows which letters are for multiregion?



Select "Setup" on remote
Scroll to Lock
Press 0 (zero) seven times
A message will appear indicating that the set is region-free now

this will make the dvd region free but NOT blu ray.that is more difficult and you will need to chip the player or install special firmware

How can I make the LG BD550 regioncodefree?


This model is already Region Free for DVDs but only Region A (in most cases) for Blu Rays and can't be changed. You can buy a version of this which is sometimes called BDP550 which is Region Free for DVDs and Blu Rays.

How do i make it all regions i cant play dvds from u.s.a. is there a code i can put in and make it into a multi regions blu ray player.


I read a little in the user manual of your player and found this options:

DVD Rating
Blocks playback of rated DVD based on their
content. (Not all discs are rated.)

[Rating 1-8]
Rating one (1) has the most restrictions and
rating eight (8) is the least restrictive.
[Unlock]
If you select [Unlock], parental control is not
active and the disc plays in full.

Maybe this is your problem. This can be found on page 28 of the english manual.

If this doesn't help, try do update your firmware:

http://www.lg.com/us/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=BD550&initialTab=drivers&targetPage=support-product-profile#

go to the tab: drivers and software - Firmware update for BD550/ BD570/ BD590

follow the steps in the PDF file to upgrade your firmware for the Player.

If this doesn't solve your problem, you should contact the LG support.


I hope this was helpful
