The disk get stuck in the player when the stop button is not pushed twice or sometimes I may need to push the disk button that it was in to retreive it. Sometimes shutting it off and then turning it back on must be done before doing this. I have had no other problems with the player besides this and my kids have put over 1,400 hours on it.Works Great.

I too had this same problem. It started last night and today has been shutting down every couple of minutes. I got out my manual and in the troubleshooting section there is a listing under smpton that says "The main unit is not working (Example: The power goes out or strange noise is heard.) The remedy says "Turn off the power and hold the STOP button for longer than 5 seconds." I tried this and it seemed to work, the unit did not shut off after a couple of mins the after maybe 10 mins it shut off. I did the reset function again and it worked for a bit then starting shutting down again. I called Samsung and they had me to unplug the unit and press and hold the power button for 10 secs while the unit was unplugged. They then had me to plug back in and put in a DVD. It came on and worked. it has now been over 15 mins and still has not shut off. Well I spoke too soon it is now shutting off again. called them back and they are having me ship it to them and they are going to fix it on their dime.

I've got the same problem too, just started last week. Got this system for Christmas and didn't hook everything up until the first of the year. Hubby didn't like it after I got it but I love it so it doesn't get used hardly at all, only when it's just me home. Bet it's got 30 hrs or less on it. My daughter was watching a movie and she said it kept shutting off. I was watching a movie this morning and it kept shutting off, kept saying "protection" and then "goodbye". I did the unplug & hold the button in, thought it worked for about 17 min....then it shut off. Since it's been under 90 days (by 3 days!) the store I bought it from says I can return it for another one. So I am on my way to do that. Want to stay with this brand but don't know what I'll do since others are having problems with this brand. Might choose another.

I've tried all of this too. I've found out that it shuts off whenever there is a loud noise. i.e. a car crash or loud punch or something. It happens at the same point every time, unless I turn the volume down really low. Hopefully I can get them to fix it on their dime too. Thanks for the support of knowing there are others out there!

My lg theater system turns itself off


Many of these systems will have a sleep mode. Look in set up and see if you can find sleep mode and try to disable it.

MY ILIVE SOUND BAR KEEPS TURNING OFF WHEN WATCHING TV


I'm having the same problem. I don't think it has anything to do with the Sleep settings, you can play with them all day & the only benefit you may get is forcing it to stay on for 90 min or whatever instead of 15.
(I've tried setting to 00, obviously the first thing that comes to mind is that it's a Sleep Setting issue, but I seriously doubt this. You can't even set the Sleep Setting to 15min anyway)

Instead, I'm pretty sure that the problem exists in the sound bar not recognizing that there is an active signal & is shutting off due to what it sees as inactivity (timing out after use). I've come to this conclusion due to multiple complaints of the same problem.

Some people are reporting that it's not happening when they watch movies, others have tested & said the radio stays on as long as you like, a couple people have posted that theirs works fine & only shuts off when they turn off about 15 minutes after they shut off the audio source, which leads me to think that this is what is going on, the system thinks the audio source (TV, Bluray, etc) is off & no sound is coming through. It must have a funny way of detecting it...

I will try a few tests & if anything works I will pay the results. One person claimed there's stayed on after turning their TV all the way up... I could try this but will have to turn TV speakers off (currently I am running both TV speakers & sound bar). Anyway, I'll keep digging, must be some way to get this to work, I hope...

Turn off the sleep mode. For some reasons the geniuses ship it with a sleep setting already on. Hold the sleep button til it shows the time then press the sleep button several times until it displays 00. good luck!

LCD monitor turn to sleep mode


Does it turn off or go to sleep? If it turns off , there may be a setting that needs to be reset or reprogrammed. If it goes to sleep because of inactivity, just move mouse to awaken it

The system goes into Sleep mode every 5 minutes and just before going into the sleep mode,''protection Error'' flases on the screen


Unfortunately, the unit is not going into "Sleep mode".
The PROTECTION error actually means that the unit is overheating.
The unit shuts itself off to avoid further damage.
Try to make sure that no other device is below the unit. Also make sure the unit has adequate ventilation on the back of it.
If not, call 1-800-7267864 and let them set up a repair order for the unit.

Converter box turns off by itself when watching tv.


Check the settings in the menu--many boxes have "power save" mode and will shut off after anywhere from 2-12 hours of inactivity. You should be able disable it or change it to a longer time.

Problem "protect"


Hey guys, just had the same problem and found out it was because I had disconnected the central speaker. This it was creating a back impedance or something and reonnecting did the trick! i.e. check your speaker connections and check that they work... duff speakers could cause the problem too!
