Sent a Region 4 player to a Region1 address

Deborah Birks, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: OJ Cap was the seller. They sent us a region 4 player. Evidently I live in Region 1. Who knew? It only will play 1 DVD in my entire collection (all are labeled Region 1). The player itself sets up easily and plays that one DVD very well. We are returning it and hoping they send us the correct DVD player for my region. Good luck Googling OJ Cap. Even Amazon couldn't find the number. The good news? Since Xmas, the price has dropped $19 and there is a different supplier.

Very disappointed

Beth Koch, Amazon
8 December 2013
  • Summary: Apparently this unit is not meant to be compatible with DVD's and Blu Rays in the US. I was not aware of this until I called customer service and was told that the unit was pretty much useless. I am returning the 2 I bought. There was no indication when I ordered the product that it was from the UK, which is what the customer service rep told me.

Won’t play regular DVD's

Carol L, Amazon
28 November 2013
  • Summary: I liked this at first. I played three Blu Ray DVD’s, and it was wonderful! Then 1 regular DVD ( it is supposed to play BR DVD’s, reg DVD’s , CD’s etc.) Which was also great. Then, the next day, I tried 8 regular DVD’s, and it ejected them all with the error : "CHECK REGIONAL CODE” ????!!!!???? What? I have always played these just fine on ALL my other DVD players. I am FURIOUS!!! This is NOT hooked up to my computer.

Not North America Compatable

Michael L. Wright, Amazon
28 November 2013
  • Summary: This unit played Blu-Rays fine. However, when I tried to play a DVD we received a "check region code" message. I had already noticed that English was the second language on the set up instructions. After doing some research, I discovered that North & South America have the same Blu-Ray region code, but different DVD region codes.

Mine did not work

Jeff Davis, Amazon
20 November 2013
  • Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS. I just got mine yesterday, hooked it up and tried to play DVDs. Each time I tried I got the error message "Error Check Region Code." There is no info as far as an owners manual or anything with this, just a start up guide. So I did searches on line & tried several fixes, but nothing worked. I finally called LG Tech support and after "troubleshooting" I was told, the unit must be defective. I'm returning it and buying a different brand.

Very disapointed

Valgal, Amazon
29 October 2013
  • Summary: Unfortunately I got a lemon. The first time I operated it, it worked but the next time I tried to use the player, it would not play. I recently bought an LG Smart TV and expected easy compatibility - but no luck. Spoke to the LG company but they did not wish me to return it and only offered a 50% refund. Very disappointed.

Didn't work out...too many problems. Don't waste your time, energy or money.

Anonymous, Newegg
28 June 2013
  • Summary: Bought this refurbished for a second bedroom. I have yet to get through an entire BD or DVD without it freezing. Tried DVDs I've had for a while, tried to give the benefit of the doubt that maybe they were scratched. I knew there was real trouble when I played a brand new BD and the same thing happened. This thing would freeze at random points, 25 mins in, 47 mins in, etc.
  • Pros: Refurb Price
  • Cons: Extremely buggy, firmware update is useless

Don't update f/w

Nicholas L., Newegg
1 June 2013
  • Pros: Played for a day, didn't have latest f/w
  • Cons: LG has terrible support, worse yet they have f/w that renders the player useless. Had no problem with the servo f/w update, that worked fine. Then I went and updated the main f/w, that was a mistake. The completion bar updated it looked like the f/w upgraded completely, the device powered it self off just as it was supposed to, but on powering up, all I get is an LG splash screen , the player is a brick. This was my first and LAST LG product. The LG support is not ver...
