Hi all,

This is my first time here and I hope I will be able to get some answers. Well I bought my LG BD550 BluRay player about a couple of years back. I have been using it as a simple player solely for DVDs and BluRay. Just today decided to check for software update and found one, my current version is BD5.84.x.x and the firmware I found online is BD5.279.x.x ...

I downloaded it and copied to my USB, plugged it in and it started updating but the big status bar didnt move at all .. I kept staring at it for like 4-5 minutes and it didn't even move a centimeter. So I thought I'll give it a little more time so I switched to cable and started watching tele. The display on the player shows the words "UPGrA" ... which I'm guessing means that it's upgrading. After about nearly 30-40 mins I moved back to the bluray player and I see NO SIGNAL on my screen as if the player has been shutdown BUT the display on the player still shows "UPGrA" written on it.
I switched it off by pulling it the power cable, put it back in and tried again, this time I didnt switch the channel, it remained on the update screen with status bar (which didnt move) for nearly half an hour and nothing happened, I switched to the other channel, after sometime came back same thing, No Signal on my tele and BLuray player shows UPGrA and still nothing.

I thought maybe the software I'm getting from net might be corrupted, so I plugged it to my LAN Connection, it detected a software update straight away, this time BD5.277.x.x ... tried installing it but the same thing ... no movement in status bar and if switched to another channel ... it goes all blank and I get no Signal ...

So what am I doing wrong guys? Any help / Advice will be great ....

Hi, I'm sorry I dont have any answer for you, but I was reading this and was disappointed that there is no answers here.

All I can say is that ours do exactly the same. Nothing seems to work. So I have no idea what you could do.
