    Hi Michael, I took the recorder apart and substituted the dvd recorder with a dvd (rom) recorder from a computer and it worked fine so obviously the the recorder or lazer is faulty.There is only one problem ie.the dvd used in the LG is smaller than the normal DVD recorder used in computers Thanks for the help

Generally this means that there is either an internal issue going on, or that the laser has become dirty or has defected. Try bying a simple DVD cleaner disk and running that through a few times. If that does not work the product may be defective -- in which case I hope that you still have a warranty -- and if you do return the product promptly for a new one.

LG RH265 does not read DVDs


Purchase a DVD cleaning kit and follow the instructions, this will remove any dirt from the laser pickup lens, and hopefully get it up and running. If this fails, the only other option is have the whole laser assembly replaced, "expensive" or replace the entire unit.

I recorded video from my Sony Handycam to the RH387H HDD and then wrote the video onto a DVD-R disc using the XP setting (instead of SP, LP.....). The disc can only playback now on the LG387H, but cannot...


make sure the disk is finalised after recording, if this does not help then the bit-rate it uses for xp may not be compatable with other dvd players, in which case stick to sp,lp or dual-layer sp is best if ou can.

LG RH1888H displays 'no disc' after inserting any type of disc.


Hi.


The problem is usually caused by dirty lens. Follow the indications in this link. I wrote the article to answer to the same common problem:My player does not read disks.

Cleaning lens is the most common fix for the problem. If that does not work, then the internal drive must be replaced.

Regards.

Dvd player wont play


Make sure that the DVD Disc is of the format that your DVD recorder can read. For example, if your recorder specifically requires a DVD -R type disk, it will puke on a DVD +R disk.

Dvd keeps reading no disc


It can be several reasons
1. Disk is upside down
2. Lens is durty. You will need to use CD/DVD cleaning disk for that
3. Disk is having diffrent region code or recorded in diffrent formate (for instance player playback disk recorded in NTSC, and you trying to playback disk in PAL formate)
4.Disk is recorded at higher speed (for instanse player markered X16, but disk is recorded at X24)
Good Luck

My DVD recorder won't play my CDs


Recently purchased a unit... You can imagine the joy when I found in Manual: Audio discs can only play if in .mpg or .wma formats! Yes, all the bells and whistles except the most basic of functions such as all common audio formats. Other portable $99 dvd player works with them.

Blank DVD discs that used to be recognised are suddenly not able to be read


I've found that once a disk is formatted in certain formats with a pc it prevents the LG from reading it.  Format it again in the LG (if you can!) or use the pc to format it using the UDF1.5 setting in a pc (which sort of resets it so the LG can at least see it as an unused disc again). 

All in all I have found my RH19991H really confusing as far as disk initialization and formatting and finalizing is concerned.  Sometimes you can select to finalize a +-rw dvd and sometimes not (the latter is the the case according to the manual) and sometimes I can select the format mode and sometimes not.  Sometimes the machine auto finalizes the dvd+-rw (the way it should be says the manual) and sometimes it does not and then I cannot use it in the pc.  I have also created some disks with DivX files and was able to play them in the LG and then using the same pc, same type of discs, same video editing software and same settings created other DivX files I could not play on the LG.  It seems the software on the machine needs some work...
