LG DR 165 DVD Recorder problem

Dear friends,

hello, I am darshan from India, by profession I am a computer programmer.

I have a LG DR 165 dvd recorder. It has a 4 hours of recording capacity from each DVD. So it can record 4 programs of 1 hour on it. Some days ago when I record 2 programs of Discovery Channel on it and when I started my DVD recorder to record 3rd program, it displayed msg "Unkown disc format want to initialize the disc ?". I found this type of messages randomly on it. Specially when disc is multisession and disc is not finalized. May be my recorder can not find the point, where to start the new recording. Some times also find this msg in finalized disc too. I found this problem since last 1 week. I purchased my recorder on 9th May 2007. It was working very good for more than 1 year.

sir, please guide me to troubleshoot this problem in simple english.

thanking you.

darshan.

Hello friends, i have been using this machine for last 2 years nearly. it showed me lot of problems. i also found yours once. this lg recorders reading lens is very poor. it reads when disc is complete free of scratches and dust. it's not possible for always, even-though, it feels very hard and takes more times to recognize disc.
so i found the solution for this problem from kind of video site that you should replace the lens of the recorder with scratch readable lens like Philips had. it will work as good as possible.
another one is that if you open this unit manually by yourself, you could find that reading unit looks like DVD writer comport, and have the pin bunches like it. so i not strongly suggest you to replace that whole unit with New DVD writer, and it may work like computer reading all files. i don't try this, but looking for it. if you get, try it.

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

When playing commercial DVD's, my DR-MV150B starts to stall. It stops with the picture on the televsion screen, but can't see the rest of the movie. Any thoughts? The disc does eject.


Try cleaning the laser with a bud, if not it's either the spindle motor or laser assembly,

Lock message


Hi!
My DMR-ES10 appears since last month, the same message, and lets myself crazy!


Today, after a desperate try, pressing the buttons, I found the solution:

Simple press the POWER BUTTON and STOP BUTTON of the unit for a few seconds...

VOILá: The UNLOCK message appears in the display and the unit return to operate without the lock message !!!

For Lock again, press the same buttons at same way until appears the Lock message in the display.

This is an undocumented command...

I hope to help you!
