I’m also having the same problem after the firmware update. $70 is ridiculous for a player that is only 3 months old (just out of their 90 day labor warranty) - no thanks. I am hoping that the new firmware update will fix the problem as well but I don’t know how long it is going to take for the next one. It has already about 6 weeks since the last one…hopefully there is another soon. The rep I spoke with on the phone said downgrading the software was not an option.
[QUOTE=picasso566;2228084][qanda]This thread is about the LG Blu Ray/HD DVD Player. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I got this player in December and I’ve played plenty Normal DVD, Blu-Ray Discs and streamed movies from Netflix. I was actually getting worried for a while there cause I was getting hooked.
About a week ago, after turning it on, the player gave a notification that a firmware upgrade was available. I installed the upgrade (mostly because I was hoping it would fix an issue with some streaming netflix movies). The firmware update installed an app which lets me watch Youtube content. Just what I freakin’ needed! Youtube on my Pioneer KURO Elite Plasma! ROFL.
Anyway, it won’t play any normal DVDs anymore. Even DVDs I played in the same player over a week ago. When I insert the disc, it says reading, then says Disc Error! Then it ejects the disc.
Anyone else have this issue? know a solution? I’ve heard that LG’s support is a nightmare.
Thanks in advance,
