Question about LG DR275 Recorder

Open Question

How do you operate an LG DR275 DVD recorder without the remote control?

I have lost the remote controller for my LG DR275. The buttons on the front of my machine let me open and close the tray, start and stop re-play, and start and stop record. These buttons are just about all I need for basic operations, so I have no trouble re-playing all the disks that I have recorded since I purchased the machine. But there is no button on the front of the machine equivalent to the "enter" button on the remote control, so I can't instruct it to initialize a new disk to allow me to record on it.  Can anyone suggest a "workaround". Is there any other way to initialize a disk? What about "finalizing a disk after it has been recorded upon (although this requirement is not so critical, because I can still play an un-finalized disk on this machine).
I don't want to buy a replacement remote control just yet because I am sort of hoping that the original remote control will turn up (I suspect that my 3 yr. old grandson has put it somewhere).  Cheers, Tezza, Sydney Australia 14/10/08

SOURCE: DVD locked in and door is not opened

For those users who just bought their machines, I would suggest warranty service. Roxanne2 should contact Philips directly with the seiral number, and they should be able to say which store they sold it to. That unit probably has a bad internal DVD writer drive.
The following solution should only be done if your machine is out of warranty unless you get permission from the manufacturer, as it will likely void the warranty otherwise:
Unplug the unit, disconnect all cables and move it to as static-free of an area as possible. Remove the cover, which usually means removing a lot of screws. Most DVD recorders have regular drives like you see in PCs. There is usually a tiny hole in the lower-right part of the drive that you can stick a small wire into, such as an unbent paper clip. You can then manually pull the drive open to get the DVD out.

Does somebody know how to make the LG RCT689H region free. It's a dvd Rewrittable, does someboady has expierience.


Access the DVD setup menu by turning on the unit without a DVD in the drive.

Press simultaneously the "arrow down" button on the right side of the DVD recorder and the "clear" button on the remote control simultaneously for about six seconds to access the options menu.

Use sideways arrow keys on remote control to navigate to OP6. Set value of option to "8F" (for region free) and press "enter" on remote control to save changes.

When message saying "save ok" appears press "menu/list" on remote control to exit options menu. The unit will reboot and is now able to play any DVD.

Trying to make my lg dr275 dvd player multi region...have tried the suggestions on website but none work


On the suggestions that you have on the website, tell us to use a CD-R wich I did. But after wasting a few of it, I tried with a DVD-R and worked much better.

Thank you very much.
