I have an LG 4210 DVD Player. Since yesterday i have noticed a background Crackle/Clicking sound. It's like old vinyl records that play ok without jumping'but have crackling in the Background. It's always in the same bits and tends to happen at noisy bits in the films and won't happen in silent parts. I've been using Chapter 4 in Terminator 2 DVD as my Test Basis as th Cracles are really Noticable when Arnie First Appears and starts surveying his surrounding. I have Tried the DVD player on 2 different TV's. I have also tried 3 different Scart leads including a Brand New One bought Today and it's always the same. So there is 2 possibilities. Either it's the Player or the DVD's themselves? Can DVD's Scratch? They have been kept in excellent codition and have no surface scratches? One thing i will mention. I enabled a Hack yesterday that allowed my player to play a VCD Disc. The crack worked fine'and maybe it's just a coincidence of the timing'but i thought i'd mention it. As far as i'm aware this should'nt have affected it this way. But the timing??? Also does anyone know how to reset the Player to Factory Settings? Thanx for any advice.
