New to the forums. Hello! I've browsed for years but never registered because my problems have always already been solved by someone else.
I just picked up the LG 55LW5300 bundle that came with the barebones (no wifi) BD-645 3D Blu-Ray player about 2 weeks ago and everything worked well out of the box with my Pioneer 931 receiver. Up until two days ago...
I picked up The Polar Express 3D Blu-Ray to watch with the kids. I put it in and watched a couple of minutes of it with my wife. No problem. It has the exact features our HD-DVD (RIP) version had so my wife begged me to play the "Josh Groban Live at the Greek Theater" of that song "Believe" which is in 2D (I believe,
) The screen went black but you could hear audio. The audio would cut out every couple of seconds for a couple of seconds and after about a minute I turned it off and it went back to the Main Menu in 3D. Didn't watch any Blu-Rays for 2 days.
Yesterday I picked up Kung-Fu Panda 2 in 3D and watched a couple of minutes of it before my kids got home (holy cow! Amazing btw!). They finished their homework and asked to watch Cars2 on Blu-Ray. I put it in and again no picture just audio. Powering the machine on/off you get the LG splash screen but then it goes to the "no signal" cube screensaver and the machine just locks up with a Blu-Ray in it and now all 3 of the 3D movies I have make it lock up (Tron Legacy, KFP2 and Polar Express). I put in a regular DVD of Raiders of the Lost Ark and I got the off/on audio that I got with Josh Groban.
Did Josh Groban kill my system?
I then tried hooking the player up bypassing the receiver to see if it was a receiver setting. Same thing. Nothing.
I hooked up my Vizio Blu-Ray player through the receiver and it played Cars 2 perfectly.
I hooked up the LG BD-645 to my old Sony SXRD directly and it played Cars 2 perfectly. While I had it on and working, I upgraded the firmware with USB and returned it to factory settings.
I hooked it all back up and reset my tv to factory and (drumroll)... Same thing. Locks up as soon as you put a 3D Blu-ray or Blu-Ray in (Says "16:02" whatever that means? Error code?). Raiders of the Lost Ark DVD plays but no picture and the sound goes on/off intermittently.
I looked hi/low for a similar thread and found nothing. If any of you have the fix or an idea of what's going on you would be my best AVS friend! Thank you! ---Chris
P.S. Xbox 360 plays perfectly through the same HDMI 3 connection. Forgot to mention. I'm posted this in the LG BDxxx player thread as well to see if anyone can answer this.
