What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor base/blue ray player. I've had this equipment for about two years and when it works its great but there are too many times it just freezes and had to reboot or unplug and wait a minute and plug back in. The last time the sound would come through but no picture. So it sits there unplugged and am looking for a replacement. I've updated recently and tried it again. Same thing it worked for a couple days and then just stopped. I'm going to select yes on sweepstakes but that is because this site wont let me post my review unless I do but I don't want to win, give it to someone else.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Has Problems I have to say that the sound is great from this system. But there are problems with the system also. The system will freeze while playing a movie, Blue-ray's and DVD's. The system will also freeze while just using the speakers. When this happens the remote and the buttons on the main unit will not work, the only thing you can do is unplug it from the power source and plug it back in. It has gotten so bad that I have bought a different Blue-ray player and I'm looking for a different speaker system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredible Home Theater - I LOVE IT !! - WOW! LG has thrown everything into the BH9430PW, including an impressive range of network features and sound modes. The stand-out feature is 9.1-channel surround sound, which expands the stage vertically using those upward-firing drivers in the speakers. The idea is to replicate the acoustics of a concert hall or cinema. It’s backed up by 3D Sound Zooming, designed to match the ‘movement’ of 3D images – so if something’s coming towards you, the audio should do the same. The BH9430PW is also DLNA certified, and through its SmartShare feature you can stream music, video and photos from PCs, smartphones and other networked devices. You can also stream files from devices using Wi-Fi Direct or play them from USB flash drives and external HDDs. The list of supported formats includes DivX HD, XviD, MKV, AVI, WMV HD, MP4, AVCHD, MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC, WAV and JPEG. That’s pretty much a full house, although it wouldn’t play MKV over a network, only via USB. The front USB port also supports iPod, iPad and iPhone. Menus and playlists are reproduced onscreen, displaying cover art during playback, and you can control it all using the LG’s remote. Nifty. Elsewhere it boasts Miracast, which mirrors your smartphone’s screen on your TV; Private Sound, which sends TV audio via Wi-Fi to mobile devices, allowing you to listen through headphones; and Bluetooth for easy music streaming, with Near Field Communication (NFC) easing the pairing process. On the Blu-ray side the system plays 3D discs, converts 2D to 3D and upscales content to 4K resolution for viewing on compatible displays. It also decodes Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master Audio soundtracks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sound Quality is Top, But features not up to! Top Sound Quality. But... 1) When it takes 10 mins to get the sound on the Speakers, Playing from USB/Disk always plays the sound though TV first. 2) Doesn't play my .ac3 files. Beware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent audio Connects easily with rear wireless speakers. Bass is deep. Love the Bluetooth option. Wish it had 1/8" audio input. Sometimes needs to be unplugged to reset, but it's been good to me. Had it for about 7 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This unit is flawless, performs very well. This unit was bought to replace a previous LG home theater system. When I sent it back to LG for repairs the parts weren't available at the time, so LG gave me a full refund including shipping cost even though the unit was over 2 years beyond the warranty period. I will continue to use LG products in the future.

It shows s-protection. How do I fix it? 

Asked by: weixiang
The S-Protection error code showing on your LG 3D-Capable 9.1 Ch Aramid Fiber Blu-ray Disc™ Home Theater System with Smart TV, Model # BH9430W means that the unit is detecting a shortage within its speakers or in the system. You will have to unhook all the speaker connections one at a time to test the unit as you remove each connection to see if you can find which one is causing the error code. If after you have unhooked all the speakers and the error code is still showing, it might be that something internal is shorting out and the unit will need to be repaired. Check that your speaker wires are not splayed and touching to cause a short...^IFV

Had my house broken into, they didn't take he speakers just the receiver/3D player. Can I buy just the deck and use the speakers from my previous purchase?

Asked by: Armyman2008
I apologize, but no; the manufacturer has not released this player without the speakers. The only BluRay players without speakers will not have the capability of connecting with any.

My home theatre system won't connect to my tv. No sound 

Asked by: Nessa4179
The LG 3D-Capable 9.1 Ch Aramid Fiber Blu-ray Disc™ Home Theater System with Smart TV, Model # BH9430W can be connected via its HDMI inputs, Optical Digital Output, HDMI Output or its' Auxiliary (L/R) Input. We would need to know how you have the Home Theater System connected to the TV to suggest how you can troubleshoot the problem. Some TVs require that you go into the Audio Settings in the TV's menu to specify the output path for the audio to get to the Home Theater System. You may want to check your owner's manual for connecting the TV to an external receiver or audio device for instructions on that. Check that the cables you are using are sound or that the ports that you are using on both the TV and the Home Theater work. Should you need further assistance, you can visit us at [] to chat with an LG Support Representative in real time! They are open Weekdays 8am - 8pm CST or you can contact a Call Representative at (800) 243-0000. You will need to be more descriptive about how you are connected and what cables or ports you are using so they have a better idea of where to look for any problems if any exist...^IFV
