So just to confirm, is it all discs that the player goes loud with or just certain ones in particular?
My player doesnt have any issues with noise, dont get me wrong it's not silent but its no louder than any other regular blu ray player i have owned the big issue for me was the freezing, thats why i switched back to my sammySo just to confirm, is it all discs that the player goes loud with or just certain ones in particular?
On my sister's 970 it was the power supply board rattling in the support on the side casing that was making all the noise.At that price its worth opening up and replacing the offending washers if its noisy. I found self adhesive soft foam feet helped with some of the vibration noise on my first player.
Yes.Don't know if anyone can help I've searched about a bit but can't find any answers. I haven't used my player in a few months as I have been streaming movies but now when I go to switch it on the LG logo comes then a couple of seconds later the screen just goes black. The unit seems to be working fine and all functions seem to working can open player and put in 4k disc and it even then spins up, so everything is working just a black screen. I've tried everything so anyone come across this before or have any answers? Many thanks
I'll try that, thank youYes.
I swapped to another hdmi cable and it seems to be behaving for now. I never expect it work every time I power it up though!
I guess it’s a handshake issue, but why changing an hdmi cable which works perfectly elsewhere makes a difference I have no idea.
Hi, sorry to ask. What sort of acoustic foam worked? I’m gonna give this a try as LG customer services are messing me around and instead want to give this a go. Just wondering where to pick it up or what options might be available/lying about the house.Picked up a march build 2017 970 bnib off fleabay,hooked it up tried a blu ray first very quiet then a uhd disc and the noise was shocking could even hear above my surround sound.
Tried some washers between the drive and chasis and was just as noisy
Then put 2 strips of 3mm thick acoustic foam 1 at the front and 1 at back where drive is closest to the base and screwed it down now it is virtually silent and have to put my ear close to it to hear it even when loading a uhd disc.
Sounds like the player is faulty (laser problem or misaligned laser). Can you play DVDs or CDs on it?Has anyone encountered an issue where a disc is inserted and the player states there is no disc? Resulting in not able to watch the disc contents. Tried turning off for a while and back on again. Same problem. I've tried 4K discs and blu-ray discs. Everyrtime it says no disc. Prior to this happening the drive had become really noisy when playing 4K discs. Intiially it was fairly quiet. The player has been hardly used.
I'm just wondering if with the above; the drive is actually faulty? I am waiting for LG to get back to me. LG really messed me around regarding the noise issue each day for about a week. Refusing to repair it. I just can't face having more aggravation with LG over this new issue. I just hope they do agree to collect and repair the player. My LG UP970 just isn't fit for purpose at present.
Thanks for replying.Sounds like the player is faulty (laser problem or misaligned laser). Can you play DVDs or CDs on it?
If it's still under warranty they can't refuse to repair it although you should be going through your retailer.
I believe so but I think the Panasonic UB200/300 are available for cheap and are supposed to do a better job of downscaling and converting to SDR.I am trying to get round the issue where some studios put the Dolby Atmos soundtrack only on the UHD disc and not on the blu-ray. Given my projector is 1080p I want to downscale the UHD image to 1080p. Will the UP970 do that?
