Question about LG DN898 DVD Player

1 Answer

For some reason, my dvd player which is a LG DN898 does not recognize my copy of Avatar. It is playing the movie in fullscreen and the disc is widescreen. I have tried it on other dvd players in the house and it all works for those. I moved one of those to my room and the movie plays just fine. For some reason, just not on the LG. Help please!!

Ok, this is a common problem you see that Video/DVD was recorded with a particular set of CODEC's, now, some CODEC's work in a lot of machines, but NOT in others, sometimes you can "Upgrade" your "Firmware" which, basically, Adds CODECS to the DVD players memory, so it will recognize it and play, if it doesn't have the CODEC it simply will use a "Generic" CODEC, now that will work, however it will NOT have all the features, such as aspect ratio, screen size etc, etc. It will just play in the "Commonest" format, which is Full Screen. So that is your "problem" well not really a problem so much as the lack of a "Feature" as they say.. Check, if indeed there are any Firmware upgrades. You also need to discover what CODEC's that particular DVD, that will not co-operate, and find out what it is encoded in, and ensure that you do not get that format again..if you cannot get a CODEC upgrade?

Down loaded flip video to disc. Disc will not play on TV but will play on computer


Hello. There are a few factors as to what would allow or disallow the disc to play. The main reason is going to be the file type the video was saved as. Your computer will have an easy time playing because it can recognize the file type. As for DVD players or TV's with built in DVD players the device will have be able to recognize the file type and know how to play it. For example some DVD players may play a DivX movie but not an AVI. So your player probably doesn't recognize the file type you are wanting it to play. One other possibility is the disc wasn't finalized when burned.

LG 399d - new - trying to play Avatar movie via the USB port - will not recognise this movie format. In DVDSCR AC3 XVID. AVI. Other movies same format play well not this one. Why? What to fix it? Dave


It is probably a corrupted copy,or perhaps the codec is slightly different from the one, used by player, there could be many reasons indeed. It could be a bad "Header" file. Try re doing the copy again, and see.

Need to unlock a LG 898 dvd player. i would like it region 0


Converting the player to multi-region (or technically region 0) so that it can play DVDs from anywhere in the world is simple. Just download a file, burn it to a CD, insert into the DVD player and pick the region you want from the on screen menu that comes up. Just google for and follow the instructions for the LG DVD-5000 series players, it is the same hack for the DN898 as the LG DVD-5063 5083 5095 5183 5253 and 6053 and the Sanyo HV-DX1E, HV-DX2E and DVW-7100 and quite a few others.

Wish to change DVD LG model DN898 to play all region DVD's


I can confirm that the iso and instructions provided here: http://alge.anart.no/~andersgo/dvd/ allowed me to set a new DN898 to Region 0. I have confirmed that it will play both NTSC in Region 1 and PAL in Region 4 without issue.

Disney dvd player wont play movies (dvd) but plays music (cd) fine


Might be the type of movie - some of them are only able to play "G" ratings. Try this: click <play> 1234 <play> It will likely unlock the dvd that is in and will begin to play. You will have to do the 'code' each time, or there's an unlock program you can purchase.
