Hi, the only real thing you can try yourself is a cd lense cleaning kit, you can buy these from most computer hardware stores and some discount shops, this may solve your problem as it will clean the laser lense and should get it working again.

if how ever after doing the above it still dont work then this points to the fact that the laser is on its way out and if this is the case then the chances are it would be cheaper to buy a new player.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated answers, thanks

My player, plays some DVDs but not others, but will play them occasionally. Have used a cleaning disc, but no improvement. Have cleaned lens of Laser with Arklone and cotton bud - no different.


If it has crossed more than 500 hours it could be the laser optic unit ( known as lens ).
The replacement would cost you 1/3 the cost of a new player.

LG DP450 portable dvd player will not play dvds. No disk appears on the screen & these are new original disks which work in other devices.


This solution worked for me! My portable player would no longer turn the dvd, "no disc error". I bought a disc cleaner at a local office supply and manually turned it with my hand about 10 times. It works now!!

a weakened laser will do this sorry to hear your problem its good you have already done minor troubleshooting to diagnose this but i would suggest a cleaning disc before any further actions hopefully this is helpful and good luck:)

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.

I bought this DVD player from India when I try to play in US it's showing hn black and white


It's because the machine is set up to playback in the PAL standard, which is used in TV and video in other countries. You need to switch it to the NTSC standard that is used in the US. There is a switch on the back of your DVD player that needs to be changed. Switch it to NTSC, and all should be fine.

You can reference the owners manual on the FixYa site by going to the links below:

A friend told me thank you - and I didn't realise one had to pay on your site. I thought it was just a forum.
So please delete me from your records.
Thank you.

Hi I am Vortash firstly the site you can download all LG software from is listed at the end of this message .
One of the main problems anengineer sees with dvd machines is not reading ?. and 50% of the time there is nothing more wrong with the machine than it needs a good clean of the laser Lens . so before you do anything else invest in a good dvd/cd cleaner and put it in your machine . not only will it give you less trouble it will prolong the life of the machine also .
The problem you seem to be having is that maybe your using DVD's of the wrong region most players can only read one type depending on where you purchased the machine I:e Europe, USA , Asia . etc : 1 for the USA and 2 For europe 5 Kenya and so on so check the label first . I hope this helps with your problem ... Regards Vortash

Dvd player is completely dead.


First thing to check is the power cord with it unpluged. Do you get a resistance there or is it open?? If its no reading at all then the power transformer or fuse or current limiter resistor is open. If you do get a reading then you know your power transformer primary is good. Next measure the AC volts comming from the secondary of the transformer. AC volts? Good! Now Find pin 1 or the end pins on the microprocessor. 5 volts present?? No theres your problem get a schematic and troubleshoot the power supply. Yes 5 volts? Measure the display any volts on it?? Ok im sure by now your gonna say no to one of these and like I said get a schematic and conferm all the voltages are present in the power supply. Most common dead problem in dvd/cd players is the power supply ie transformer,regulator, ic, ect, ect. Good Luck
