Question about LG Televison & Video
Blue ray DVD's are read by a Blue violet LASER. I know that sounds pretty obvious but the colour blue is closer to the upper end of the spectrum and therefore has a shorter frequency and therefore you can generate and read much narrower data tracks. DVD's and CD use an older technology and use Red laser light which has a much wider and therefore less compact track size. So with a lower track density you get less information on a DVD.
The blue laser can be used to read both formats (and CD) but when reading the Blue ray disc the accuracy required is far greater to hit the track. Tracking errors caused by worn gears steppers and spindles can cause the Blue ray to miss the track but still have enough tolerance to read the much wider DVD/CD track.
The laser head isn't one laser, it actually produces two separate wavelengths, one for Blu ray discs and one for Red ray (DVD/CDs)
You can have a condition where the "blue-violet Laser diode fails but the red laser diode is still working. In this condition, it will exhibit exactly the effect you are experiencing.

i fixed this exactly as previous posted solutions, however a couple of points.
a) recordable CDs work if you don't have a DVD burner.
b) I didn't have a CD burner that would do an "image burn", I downloaded a free copy of "Express Burn" and that worked fine. The disk needs to be "finalised" or "fixated", it should do this automatically, or it may be a tick box selection.
c) I got a "No DWLD 09" when I put the disk into the player. I found this was an incompatibility with the CD-R (Maxwell) I was using. I changed to JVC and it worked fine.

If you tried firmware update and it doesn't work and its less than a year from the date of purchased call Samsung customer service and claim for warranty . Panasonic has the same issue without explanation.

You may have to apply an update. There's a key used to decrypt the content on Blueray discs that changes from time to time in an attempt to thwart piracy. Updating involves visiting the manufacturer's(Samsung) website, downloading the update onto a USB stick, and starting the player with the USB stick inserted.
