    Lg dvd player not playing avi files any longer

    ok so i have lg dvd player model no. Lg dvx492h , bought it in October last year, played avi files fine, went to watch a movie on it the other night (avi via usb pen) and it didnt work , also tryed an external hdd didnt work. The problem is when i try to play the file it will display a few yellow dots on the left hand side and then will take me back to the folder structure.

    Anyone know why its doing this and is there any fixes ?

    avi files cant be lots of different codecs inside,

    i think your machine supports divx type, but avi can be anything inside

    try another movie you know to be divx

    avi can be downloaded/encoded in many variations. It's just a container it may be these file are not compatible as theye are QP/ above the res your player allows,. You will have to try and play something from your usb pen you know you have watched before (from the same files you watched last time though) to rule out your hardware being now faulty
