Sorry to dig up this old thread.
I have a new LG BH200 that I bought more than 18 months ago as a backup unit, that has never been used. I opened it up last night for the first time. After it is hooked up to the TV, I get this continuous "please wait" scrolling message on the player LCD. The TV shows a "red" status bar scrolling from left to right and when it got the furthest right, nothing happens, and the please wait message is continuously scrolling on the player.
I googled this issue and stumbled across this thread.
I tried unplugging the power, and pressing & holding the power button whilst plugging the power back in on the back of the player but it didn't do anything. How long are you guys holding down the power button for? Also should I be leaving the unit unplugged for a certain duration before trying this process again.
I am not happy about this as this is a brand new unit that has never been used. I can't believe it is not working out of the box
Anyone has any other suggestions?
