Unable to play some new dvds

My LG DVD/VHS is not playing some new DVDs yet they will play in my PC DVD or on someone else' DVD player. This is a random issue. I've cleaned the DVD lens and DVD using COTS products. Still no success. I'll get an initialization msg or DVD not found.

Re: Unable to play some new dvds


I'm having the same problem with my LG as well. In fact I tried playing Transformers as well (on 29 Dec, 2007) and it froze mid-way as well (somewhere in scene 9). I was thinking to call the manufacturer but if they don't know either I'll take it back to the shop and replace.

If any of you have found a solution though, would much appreciate if you could share. Thanks.

Clean the lens with a soft cloth preferably cotton to avoid scratching it. Do not use cotton as it will leave fibers on the lens.
