Sounds like you have a fan problem. Get it serviced by the manufacturer.

Hi getting an error message FANCHK - which is fan check - I understand - how is the best way to fix this?

If you notice at the back of the BD Player there is a small fan. Sometimes dust accumulates on the blades and bearings and makes it difficult for the fan to start. Disconnected the mains power cable and remove the top cover for the BD player. Now take an old tooth brush and clean the fan blades, with out placing the top cover try powering up the BD player. See if the fan works , if not have it replaced.

It keeps showing fanchk and turning off

The amplifier probably has a fan that has stopped working. To prevent damage from overheating, it shuts down.

My Digital Home system shuts dowmn after 20

FANCHK sounds like a message saying the internal fan is not running. Open the unit and have a look to see if there is a fan and if it runs when the unit is on. You can also try to turn the fan and see if it will turn easily or if it is seized up.

My dvd player keeps saying fanchk and then tuns its self off

Hi JB,

It's telling you to check the cooling fan on the unit. Electronics are dust magnets. Sometimes the fans get jammed.

At any rate, make sure trhe fan is functioning and clear of dust molecules.

BEST regards

Player shutting down after 10 seconds

Shutting down completely like power is gone or just DVD stopping with power on? If completely shutting down the look in power supply and find bad capacitor and replace. If DVD stops with power then look at laser, clean or maybe damaged.

My LG DN191H DVD player keeps shutting itself off every 5-10 minutes while I'm watching movies. Every time it shuts down I have to power it up and go through all of the menus again. It's really irritating....

laser problem just trash it. I got one that have the problem 2 months after purchase and was sent back to manufacturer after another 3 months I'm getting disc error. I guess they have a problem on the laser reading assy
