Getting an Error Code 101

I had my Timeshift stop on me and the tv said it needed to initialize the HDD and lists it is a Error Code 101. I formatted the drive but it will only last for about 10-20 minutes and then it will stop again. It sounded like LG service center didn't know what to do. Is this a problem with the hard drive? I have also heard a metal grinding sound almost like bad metal bells from behind the tv. I can stop the sound if I turn off the tv and turn it back on. The 42LB1DR is over a year old so no warrenty. If it is the hard drive, can I replace it and what type does it take?

SOURCE: I have a LG 42LB1DR

I just got of the phone with a manager at LG and they want to send out a technician to figure out the problem. I made it more than clear that their are more than just a handful of us experiencing this problem, and they are "looking into it".

I think we all need to call in and complain, and drive the fact home that this is not a single incident, but that there are many of us having this problem. Point them to this forum, and tell them your faith in LG is waning. A threat of informing the Better Business Bureau never hurt either. That's what I did, and now they are looking into it more, and are going to cover the parts on the service call, so that my expense for their problem is covered, even though my warranty is expired.

If we want this fixed, and prevented in the future, we have to call and bitch, that is the bottom line. It is unfortunate, but that is how it has to work sometimes.

Here is the number for their customer service: 800-243-0000

If you hear anything new, let us know!

This is almost certainly the device that sends electricity to the the plasma in the panel after failing. Bring to your local repair shop and expect to pay 300-400 parts and 100-200 labour.

Ricoh c6501 sp error coad sc 925 solution


SC925 B Net File function error *GW The NetFile file management on the HDD cannot be used, or a NetFile management file is corrupted and operation cannot continue. The HDDs are defective and they cannot be debugged or partitioned, so the Scan Router functions (delivery of received faxes, document capture, etc.), Web services, and other network functions cannot be used.
HDD status codes are displayed below the SC code: • Refer to the four procedures below (Recovery from SC 925). Here is a list of HDD status codes:
Display Meaning (-1) HDD not connected (-2) HDD not ready (-3) No label (-4) Partition type incorrect (-5) Error returned during label read or check (-6) Error returned during label read or check (-7) "filesystem" repair failed (-8) "filesystem" mount failed (-9) Drive does not answer command (-10) Internal kernel error (-11) Size of drive is too small (-12) Specified partition does not exist (-13) Device file does not exist


Procedure 1
If the machine shows SC codes for HDD errors (SC860 to SC865) with SC 925, do the recovery procedures for SC860 to SC865.
Procedure 2
  1. If the machine does not show one of the five HDD errors (SC860 to SC865), turn the machine power off and on.
  2. If this is not the solution for the problem, then initialize the NetFile partition on the HDD with SP5832-11 (HDD Formatting - Ridoc I/F).
    NetFiles: These are jobs printed from the document server using a PC and DeskTopBinder. Before you initialize the NetFile partition on the HDD, tell the customer:
    • Received faxes on the delivery server will be erased
    • All captured documents will be erased
    • DeskTopBinder/Print Job Manager/Desk Top Editor job history will be erased
    • Documents on the document server, and scanned documents, will not be erased.
    • The first time that the network gets access to the machine, the management information must be configured again (this will use a lot of time).
  3. Before you initialize the Netfile partition with SP5832-11, do these steps:
  4. Go into the User Tools mode and do "Delivery Settings" to print all received fax documents that are scheduled for delivery. Then erase them.
  5. In the User Tools mode, do Document Management> Batch Delete Transfer Documents.
  6. Do SP5832-11, then turn the machine power off and on.
Procedure 3
  1. If "Procedure 2" is not the solution for the problem, do SP5832-1 (HDD Formatting - All)
  2. Cycle the machine off/on.

Hitachi SimpleDrive Mini-red wine USB 2.0 Portable Drive - 250GB SDM/250RW This external drive is not recognized by my pc- i'm running windows XP but have tried it on a Vista too, and also beeps once...


If you have tried it on two PCs with the same result, the hard drive is most likely defective. If so, the computer may recognize it being plugged in with a beep but will not recognize it at all as an accessible device.

One thing you can check is if the hard drive was never initialized, meaning that there is empty space but the empty space isn't configured for the operating system to recognize and use. To do this:

- Go to "Start" and "Run" and type in "diskmgmt.msc" and hit "Enter".
- A list will pop-up listing all hard drives on computer. Each row is a physical hard drive.
- The main hard drive for your computer should be listed as "Disk 0" and the local disk in it should be "C:".
- Assuming you have no other hard drive besides the external, the next row should be "Disk 1" and say "Unallocated", which means the hard drive was never initialized. In this case, right-click on it and select "Format". Click next through everything and the external HDD will be formatted so that Windows can recognize it.
- MAKE SURE NOT TO FORMAT LOCAL DISK C:!
- After that, the external HDD should be recognized fine and pull up in "My Computer".

Otherwise, if no other hard drive is listed, the external HDD is most likely defective and you will need to purchase a new one.

I need to replace hard drive for a ricoh copier 1045. How can I get the software for the hardrive, and what is the maximum size of the hard drive?


No need for software. The standard hard drive size is 10GB. I don't remember the exact limit but the machine will only recongnize a certain amount so it will do you any good to buy a larger capacity drive. Just get the smallest/cheapest one and you'll be fine. These take the smaller "laptop" size drive in case you did not know. Other than that just install the new drive and let the machine do the setup. If your old drive failed then keep in mind you will have lost any document server files, scan destination or fax destination info and will have to re-enter that info.
Good Luck

Transferring from timeshift buffer to hdd


When in timeshift, press record on the remote (every time you push "record" 30 minutes are added) and make sure the program you are recording is not macro protected. If your program has already finished rewind to the beginning of the program and push record the correct number of times to cover your program and then press stop on the remote. It should then be at the bottom of your hard drive list.

I have an lg 50pt8 plasma tv with hdd. the hard drive wont work, it just says ( hdd initialisation in progess please try again later!) any help would be great. thank you.


Check your owners manual and see if there is a way to format the hard drive. If so, format it and try it again.

If not, or if you can't get past the hdd error, check your owners manual and see what type of hard drive it takes. Go to your local computer store, buy one and install it in your TV. This SHOULD stop the error message, and allow you to format the new drive using your TV's menu structure. Again, check the owners manual for formatting instructions.

If you are an experimental type of person, you can install the tv hard drive in an external hard drive case, plug it into your computer and try to get it running.

Finally, if it turns out to be some kind of proprietary hard drive you may have to check with LG to purchase a replacement.
