LG RH1757 HDD/DVD Recorder

Why wont my DVD play shop bought dvds.

I bought my player in Lanzarote, the canaries, Spain, where I live.
The region on the back of the player is 2, the dvds are region 2, yet the recorder just ejects the dvd, and an onscreen message says "unknown format", or sometimes "no disc".

YET....

when I put in an originalyl blank dvd but recorded on my other DVD recorder (a Philips), it will play on the LG ok, meaning the LG recorder/player works fine, and its a disc read problem..

So...
why wont the LG read shop bought dvds

Hi I got a Lg HDD/Dvd Recorder Model RH1999H. Ihave a problem copying Dvd from the hardrive. When I load a completly blank disc, the recorder will not intialize the disc. How do get this recorder to intialize the disc to video. When i got to set up mode, I select Disc Format option, i cannot get into the format mode, I tried to change it but it does not change the only thing I see on the disc format mode is PBC highlighted.
Please advise

Could be a timing issue with the tray mechanism - possible that somebody has given the tray "a shove" to make it close instead of using the open/close button and has put the timing out.or a worn tray loading belt

Need to play region 1 DVD in region 2


I just got a RH387H in Hong Kong, region 3, but the above method doesn't work, this model has slightly different icon, no "lock" icon, I tried in other similar location but no effect, hopefully someone will provide a method.

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.
