Question about LG DN191H DVD Player

2 Answers

My LG DN191H DVD player keeps shutting itself off every 5-10 minutes while I'm watching movies. Every time it shuts down I have to power it up and go through all of the menus again. It's really irritating. Any suggestions?

    We have the same problem and are trying to figure out if we can still salvage it.  Any ideas besides getting rid of the machine would be appreciated.  Thank you!

    Hello, My LG BH6420S Blu ray player, Keeps powering off after 3 minutes. This always happens in all mode(dvd,usb,apps.etc). I went to change the setting, by disabling the automatically turn off player when idle. I also restore to factory settings. But no luck still. The system still continue to power off it self after 3min. Any help will be well appreciated. Thanks.

    If I select Homelink from the home menu, the system will shut down. It does not follow the normal power down process, it shuts off completely. Running latest software, have tried power down and unplug, factory reset. This is a recent development. My LG surround system will perform the task in place of the DVD Player/Tuner.

There is something wrong with your the powersupply of your player that is why it shuts down, its a safety feature, if the secondary PowerSupply heats up, the player automatically shuts down..

My sanyo dvd player is turning itself off while im watching a movie. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

It is shot. It sounds like it is overheating and shutting down. Fixable but the cost of DVD players these days it is too close in cost to fix it vs replacing 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.

My LG dvd player keeps jumping to the next song

Make sure the discs are clean, any prints can cause problems, buy a dvd cleaning kit and follow the instructions, it will clean the laser lens and maybe solve your issues with the player.

DVD Format

Although LG supports both DVD + and - I suggest that you use the - (so no Submenues that you may have generated and burn the DVD with lower speed (max 2x).
Make sure to keep the structure with the E:\AUDIO (although if Empty) and then the DVD will be accessible.

My dvd Player started turning itself on and off all by its self.

don't bother fixing it, bring it back to store. You'll void any guarantees by tampering with it. Most likely the power button is damaged in some way. These are not repairable.

Player shutting down after 10 seconds

Shutting down completely like power is gone or just DVD stopping with power on? If completely shutting down the look in power supply and find bad capacitor and replace. If DVD stops with power then look at laser, clean or maybe damaged.
