LG Blu-ray Updates

Thankfully, your LG Blu-ray player is made to be worry-free. That said, the firmware that powers your Blu-ray player should be updated from time to time to enhance your experience. This can be done easily, and quickly, right at home.

Network Updates

From time to time, performance improvements and/or additional features or services may be made available to units that are connected to a broadband home network. If there is new software available and the unit is connected to a broadband home network, the player will inform you about the update as follows.



The update menu will appear on the screen when you turn on the player.


Select a desired option and then press ENTER.

  • OK—starts the software update.
  • CANCEL—exits the update menu and displays it the next time booting.
  • HIDE—exits the update menu and it will not appear until next software is uploaded in the update server.


When the UPDATE icon appears at the bottom of the HOME menu, this means new software is available from the server. Press BLUE (B) colored button to start the firmware update.

Software Updates

You can update the player using the latest software to enhance the product operation and/or add new features. You can update the software by connecting the unit directly to the software update server.


Before updating the software in your player, remove any disc and USB device from the player.

Before updating the software in your player, turn the player off and then turn it back on.

During the software update procedure, do not turn off the player, disconnect AC power, or press any button.

If you cancel the update, turn off the power and turn it on for stable performance.

This unit cannot be updated to the previous software version.

Follow these simple steps:

1. Select SOFTWARE option in the SETUP menu, then press ENTER.
2. Select UPDATE option, and press ENTER.
3. You're all set.
