I had the same problem.
1. check that the disk region is the same as you unit ( it is the global of the world on the CD has a number in the middle, now check the back of your player. They must be same region.
2. Turn the unit on
3.Press the power button and hold for 10 Seconds
3. Turn the unit back on, wait for the time to display.
4. unplug the unit and leave unpluged for 30 seconds
5. plug the unit back in and turn it on, the time should not display should be blank.
6. Unit should go into startup wizard like it is being started for the the very first time. follow the prompts.
7. In the setup menue, I believe it is under disc settings, select set to factory settings.

Once I completed these, I put the netflix movie back in and it now runs,

Hope the same works for you

How do I hook-up Netflix through a Sony Blu-Ray player and a LG television

If your Sony Blu-Ray player and LG TV are recent models, each should have an HDMI cable connection. HDMI is an method to connect your digital video and audio devices with just a single combined cable. In the case of your LG TV, using an HDMI cable will allow you to send the HD video signal to your TV's screen, and allow you to hear the sound through the TV's speakers.
Your LG TV may have multiple HDMI connectors, to allow other devices to send signals to your TV, such as a cable box or satellite box or digital video recorder (DVR). Your Sony Blu-Ray player will usually have just a single HDMI connector.
Purchase an HDMI cable from your local electronics store. There are different versions of the HDMI specification, and you should get a cable that you can verify is certified for the HDMI version 1.4 specification.
Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the Blu-Ray player, and the other end into one of the HDMI connectors on the TV, noting which one you selected.
When you turn on your Sony Blu-Ray and your LG TV, you should use the remote for the LG TV to select the input source. Your LG remote should allow you to select the HDMI input connector you used, at which point you should see the display of a DVD playing on the Blu-Ray player. If you cannot hear the sound, use the LG remote to increase the TV volume.

How do i set up netflix on the LG BP340 blu-ray player

Streaming difficulties are often the result of a low network connection speed. If you experience poor quality video, or videos have to stop and buffer frequently then the bandwidth of the home network may be insufficient. Network ready televisions will scan the available bandwidth and adjust the quality of the video so that it is presented without interruption.
[img alt="" align="middle" src="" width="710" height="9"> Does this happen with all titles or only one? If this occurs with only one title, the stream could temporarily be down or experiencing an issue and will need to be reported to Netflix.
If this happens with all titles, check your network settings first.
[img alt="" align="middle" src="" width="710" height="9">
Unplug the power cable to both the modem and the router for 15-20 seconds.
Connect the power cable back to the modem, then the router.
The modem must be connected first unless you are using a router/modem combo unit.
If the problem continues after the network reset, perform the steps below.
[img alt="" align="middle" src="" width="710" height="9">
Press the Home/Menu/Setup button on the LG remote.
Choose Setup.
Select Network.
Access Netflix.
Select Netflix Deactivation.To reactivate Netflix you will simply log back into your Netflix account.

DVD player will play store bought dvd's but will say unknown disc when I insert one from Netflix.

Is it possible that this is a Blu-Ray disc from Netflix? If so, It may not be able to be read on a standard DVD player.
Another possible reason for this is that the disc is somehow damaged and thus unreadable.
I'm afraid without seeing the disc I am unable to help you further.
Either way, might be time to complain to Netflix:

Cannot do this on a combo unit. There is a chip that senses copy protection and prevents recording a copy-protected DVD to a VHS and vice-versa. Solution: Use an outboard DVD player or an outboard VHS VCR and try the recording with the video routed through a "stabilizer" box. The stabilizer (about $30 or less on Ebay) defeats the copy protection on MOST DVDs, but not all. It works with Netflix DVDs. Route the audio as usual. Audio is not protected.
