I have a LG BD390 player (2009?) and it recently stopped playing regular DVDs, or I have to load and unload one several times before it finally reads it. And some DVD-R's even that doesn't work. Anyone have similar issues with this model? Anything can be done? It has all the newest firmware updates. Thanks for any advice.

I found when you turn the unit on with the disk already in, the player will read a regular DVD, but not when you use the open and load button and close it. One improvises.

I broke down and replaced it with a Sony BDS-590. What does it say about our consumer society when it's basically cheaper to just trash your former technology and replace it rather than have it fixed? I called LG and the labor alone would have been $70/hour on the player, and a new Sony 3-D BD player was $129.
