GOT IT!!!! Go to your settings, then to update - then connect to the web and run an update.
This seems to work - but if it doesn't , call the 800 number and they can actually update the machine through the internet for you!

Answer: 
I am having the same problem with DISNEY CARS 2. Other PIXAR DVDs work fine, but this one freezes the player and you need to unplug it to reset it.
The manual suggested changing the "area code" to the country that the disc was manufactured in - and that was Canada, so we tried that, but to no avail.
The player would not even recognize that there was a disc in it.
It accepted TOY STORY, and OUTLAW JOSIE WALES, but not DISNEY CARS 2.

Answer: 
I am having the same problem. The DVD tries to load, then the screen freezes and all controls are frozen. The only way to gain control is to unplug it and plug it back in. I thought it was just me, but I see that isn't true. I also updated to the most recent software, to no avail.

the LG BD640 - wi-fi?

best buy says the wi-fi is built-in, but I read another review that said it required a wi-fi adapter and the adapter is included. Is the wi-fi built in with the BD640? Thanks

Answer: 
It does have a dongle sticking out the front that the kids can grab and lose, which almost happened already. Loses connection w/the router less than 15 feet away and can be a pain to restart the deal to get connection.

Answer: 
It is interesting that the response from LG is wrong. Wi-Fi is NOT built in, it is PLUG in. I own this player and have the dongle stiking out the front to prove it.

Answer: 
The BD640 From LG Electronics has a wireless adaptor "stick" that comes in the box. It plugs into the front of the player, usb connector on far right of face, for access to your existing wireless network. I looked it up by reading the owners manual on LG's website.

Answer: 
..in addition to hotaustin's helpful stuff, note that it took me a
couple-of tries to get the Netflix-connect to take..

..you need their non-ESN password, but it may take another day
or so for the connect to happen..
..it also seems like going thru the Netcast section (rather than the
Setup section, which i tried several times) is the proper way to
connect to Netflix..

..thx hotaustin..yer points helped here, fer sure..

but naturally, they make things hard>>

Answer: 
Hey there, I had the same problem. And the ESN is actually not the code that Netflix wants you to enter when activating on their site. The code is given to you in a different area of the LG menu. Go to "Home" on the LG remote first, scroll over to the "Netcast" icon, hit enter. Netflix will be an option on that screen, select it. It will ask you if you are a Netflix member, select "yes" and it will spit you back out a code. The code is much shorter than the ESN you referenced in your question and it is only alpha characters (or at least mine was).

The instructions for setting up Netflix in the large LG manual for this 640 are not as good as the smaller insert called the Quick Start Guide. Good luck!

BD640 will not power up at all

The unit will not power up, no display. However, the USB plug in provided with the unit does light up when it is inserted into the USB port. This is a brand new unit. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

Summit blu ray's won't play

I now have three different Summit Entertainment blu ray movies that will not load in my player. All were bought brand new and play fine in my computer's blu ray player, so the discs are working... just not in my LG player. Clearly there must be something conflicting between these movies and my player and I need to find a way to resolve it.
