Question

Is there a way to program the remotes so they are unique to each player?

I have 3 dvd players. When I use the remote to start a movie on one player, it affects the other 2 players.

Thank you for your question. I do apologize for any inconvenience. Unfortunately there is no way to program each remote to operate only one specific LG player. You may try moving the players further away from each other so that another player is not affected by remote commands.

This unit has a regional code printed on the rear of the unit. This unit can play only BD-ROM or DVD discs labeled same as the rear of the unit or “ALL”. Most products released in the United States are set for REGION 1 ONLY.

Question

How can I unlock my BD530 blu-ray disc player?

If the power is on and I hit eject, the display shows LOC and it will not open. In order to get my player to eject the disc, I have to turn the player off, then hit the eject button. It is just really annoying, so is there an easy solution?

The latest 3D formats have been on certain BluRay players only. This unit has not been designed for operation with the 3D technology. Regrettably, this player will not be compatible with 3D BluRay discs.

All codes to be used will be located in the setup instructions for the Universal Remote Control. If you have experienced trouble in locating codes for LG, you may also try using Zenith or Goldstar codes, as some of these coincide with LG frequencies.

Question

The technical specifications on the LG site for Model BD530 states that Netflix is an internet service, why is Netflix software not available?

LG's website today shows Netflix being a internet service on the BD530 but all of the question and answers say it is not supported. That information is misleading and now I have a Blu Player that will not play Netlfx. Why is Netflix software unavailable for download?

I apologize for the incorrect information. It does appear that this feature was removed before distribution. This can be seen in the fact that, although Netflix may be listed on the website, it is NOT found on the specification sheet that is also attached to the website; it is also NOT found in the ON-LINE ENTERTAINMENT ACCESS section of the owner’s manual, which is also attached to the website. I will be certain to make mention of this to our web administrators, so that this incorrect information can be removed. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The addition of features is only available if the content producers develop and release such an update to these players. The hardware manufacturer does not write software for the addition of such features. Any updates would be sent directly to the television. In order to obtain all the online features that are available on our Smart TV devices, without having to obtain an entirely new TV or player, it is recommended to obtain the Smart TV Upgrader, model ST600 which will allow the Smart TV features which are available through the LG Apps Store. Information about this device can be viewed on our website at http://www.lg.com/us/tv-audio-video....

We regret the trouble you have experienced with this player. Since the keys have been unresponsive, it is recommended to unplug the player for about 45 seconds. This should allow the player to reset. Once that time frame is complete, plug the unit in and test the device. If it continues to be unresponsive, then the unit will likely require service. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to make proper service arrangements.

If you forget your password, you can clear it using the following steps. Remove any disc that might be in the player. Select the PASSWORD option in the SETUP menu. Use the number buttons, on your remote control to enter the code 210499. This will clear the password. It may not seem that the unit is accepting the 5th and 6th characters, but they are recognized and are important to this procedure.
