After scouring the internet for solutions to the LG "PLEASE WAIT" issue, I can't find a solution except on this site. I have had the unit unplugged for approximately a week and completed the power cycling.
The solution that I found was to hit the "micro-button" after removing the front cover. I can't seem to find this micro-button. Can someone assist me? I actually have the LG XBR446.

You need to unplug the power cord from the wall and wait 20 seconds or so. Then plug it back in and see if it works. If your unit is less than a year old, you should be able to use the warranty if needed. You should see if it is more economical to repair or replace the sound bar. Hopefully a quick reset will fix the issue.
Check working condition hardware. May be malfunction Main Boar or AMP. Unplug cable (wires) attached from Power PCB Board and main board to AMP PCB Board. Turn ON, if again comes message " Please wait" and unit sot down itself- Malfunction main board. If unit booted UP -OK -replace AMP board. Partsare availableon our web
My blue ray player is having the same issue. I called the LG support tech and these are the instructions I got.
1) turn power off 2) unplug the machine from the outlet and leave it unplugged for 10 to 15 minutes 3) after waiting 10 to 15 minutes and with the machine still unplugged from the wall, hold the power button on the machine down for 20 seconds 4) plug in and turn power back on
If this does not work, unit is defective and would need to be returned for repairs.
I have exactly the same problem with the same model tv. I am currently scouring the internet to try and find a solution to fix this problem. If you find one before I do, please share your findings and I will do the same. It has been suggested that it could be capacitor failures in the power supply unit. I have not looked at the psu yet to see if any capacitors are "bulging" I want to be sure before I start changing components.
Make sure to wait long enough during power disconnection. Unplug the power adapter at both ends (at the console and especially at the power outlet). Give the capacitors at least a minute (perhaps longer) to completely dissipate residual energy. Then, hook it back up and it should be good to go.
If the power light does not come back on, even after wait several minutes. The power adapter will likely need to be replaced. Any electronics shop will be able to test the power adapter first to be sure it is the problem.
I would give credit to someone else for this super simple solution. But, it's all over the internet.
follow directions from the owners manual. while unit is powered up, unplug power cord from back of unit - wait 5-seconds. Depress the DVD open/close button while re-plugging the power supply cord to the unit. LG splash appears onscreen and unit goes into re-set. you do not loose any of you programing or settings.
Had same problem on sameLG unit. Found a Sony blog with same issue described and solution was a blown capacitor on the power supply circuit. Opened my unit and sure enough there was a bulging cap. Replaced it and starts up like normal. 90c repair.
to open the tray during "please wait", remove casing then loosen front panel (clips either side and underneath). Power up to get "please wait", then press small microswitch in bottom right corner of the DVD player unit.
Have you tried resetting the unit (turning on and holding the power button for at least 5-10 seconds)?
Have you tried unplugging the unit for a longer period of time (24 hours)?
