What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turbo Wash Washer I've had my washer for two weeks and love it. I look forward to doing laundry! It gets my clothes so much cleaner than my old washer. I like the dedicated buttons - no guess work!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kind of generic Just a disc player. Nothing really outstanding about it. It feels light as paper. Very thin unit. Remote works fine. A little noisy. Attractive design.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not great Upconversion looks excellent. Problem with my universal logitech remote so that when I pause a movie it won't play unless I go find the cheap remote that the unit came with. I like the USB support so we can use with thumb drives to display jpegs but I wish it also allowed .avi movies. That would be awesome!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bang for the Buck This unit has all the ports I need for my system. Although it doesn't have all the features and picture tuning I like, its still a good deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely Satisfied I purchased this DVD player at the same time as my LG Television. I was initially attracted to the low profile, sleek design. Setting it up was as simple as any electronic could be. I took it out of the box, plugged in the power cord, and connected it to my television with a HDMI cable. I was very impressed with the quality of the picture. The feature set was robust especially considering the price. The menu was user-friendly and the included instructions were not needed to alter any of the settings. I would recommend this product to anyone needing a new DVD player for use with their HD TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice DVD player. Low profile and compact. It puts out a beautiful picture on screen. It has nice features on the remote especially the one that takes you to the DVD menu by-passing all the previews.

Is this LG DN898 does support [CC] Closed Caption for playback NTSC DVD which carry [CC] logo on DVD does it work on caption on LG DN898 and have it testing? 

Asked by: Deafguy
Close Captioning was supported on the discontinued LG 8.5” Stylish DVD Player, Model # DN898 that was released in the U.S. Please contact the LG Support Center in Australia to verify if the model that was released there would have supported Close Captioning. Models will vary according to the region and country that they were released in. (http://www.lg.com/au/support)...^IFV

what is the remote control code for a universal remote

It is an LG model # DN898 DVD player
Asked by: TimMc
All codes to be used for programming the Universal remote control will be located in the setup instructions for the Controller. If you have experienced trouble in locating codes for LG, you may also try using Zenith or Goldstar codes, as some of these coincide with LG frequencies.

LG dvd player DN898 will not turn on with remote or manually. Have checked outlets and connections, any other suggestions. Looks like new.
