Do you know for a fact that the mainboard is ~$400? Do you know the part number, and/or where it can be acquired?

I got my BH200 repaired in Switzerland, they charged around $120.-- for the mainboard. However no part number is mentioned.

Samsungmaster, any idea of the true cost and part # for the mainboard, and whether it's available from LG or elsewhere?

The board will cost you about $375, these are not normally sold to a consumer you will have to go through an ASC.

Anyone have a clue as to which component on the board is most prone to failure?

Thanks. BTW, does anyone know how long mainboard, etc. failures are covered under warranty by LG? Also, is the original receipt required to prove purchase date (no longer have it), or will serial # (date of mfg?) suffice?

Looks like mine is now screwed. GF's parents ued this player or 9 months or so, I took it back last night (replaced it with Netflix version) and watched Serenity HD DVD this morning. Put in UP, that froze, and now the unit won't get past the 'Please Wait'. Ugh. What's the warranty on these?

Bought my player Jan 09 and just the other day it started the never ending "Please Wait". I left it on for three days and nothing new happened.

Yikes! Does this problem usually pop up after playing a HD DVD or are the chances of it happening just as likely with a Blu-ray or SD DVD?


I try to limit the use of this machine to just Region B Blu-ray disks and DVDs of other regions, including PAL. I have a better player for HD DVD (Toshiba XA1) and Region A Blu-ray (Pioneer 05).

Since my unit was out of warranty, I opened the case and removed the drive itself. It is the LG GGR-L20N and it is a serial ATA standard drive that you can use in your computer. This way, at least it's not a total loss. I connected it to power and my motherboard and now I have a Blu-ray HD-DVD combo drive in my computer.

I just got the dreaded "Please Wait" message at power up with Sarah McLachlan Mirrorball DVD inside. Tried the following:


Simply waiting for "Please Wait" to go away (after 40 minutes still no change).

Power cycle using power button.

Turning on using the eject button.

Power cycle using power cord.


Nothing worked. Unit is no longer in warranty. I guess I'll hook the drive up to a PC so I can recover my disc. Time to look at current players.

Power it off and unplug from the wall. Plug in the Player while Holding down either the power button or the eject button. it happened to me once on my BH100 and it still works to this day.

That worked! You are my new hero.

Several months ago, someone let me have their old 5.1 receiver which seemed to be dead. He figured it was in some sort of "protect-mode", but didn't want to fool with it anymore. That same "power cord/cycle trick" brought it back from the dead.


And should my own BH200 go down, I'll certainly know what to try first.

Well, my Dad did something stupid and his BH200 now dose the dreaded endless please wait. I pulled it apart and got the part # EBR41821202 off the mainboard. Seems the partstore.com carries it but at $400 he just bought a new Panasonic BD player.

I guess the good news is I have a spare drive for one of my two BH200's in case one of those fail.

Well I got the dreaded "Please Wait" scrolling LCD message tonight. Let it on for over 30 minutes and nothing. Turned off, turned on, unplugged, plugged back in - no avail. Tried the trick mentioned above - pulled the plug and held in the power button while I plugged it back in. Came back to life! Thank you Nashou66!

Glad it worked for you. Lots of new Electronic deices are like dedicated computers. They need a PMU(Power Management Unit) reset. On my iMacs you hold the power button while plugging it in and it resets it. I gave it a shot on my BH100 and it worked.

I also wanted to thank you for this tip. Picked one off Ebay for $65 that had this problem and was able to fix it. Awesome!
