I have a LG DVD/VCR Recorder RC 897T. Some times when I turn the unit on the DVD door will open and not close. I must push the DVD Door closing function button many time before the door stays closed and I...


d_engel,

It sounds like you need a new load belt. Installing the belt is a complicated process, not impossible, but if you have not done it before it could be daunting.

If you want to try it you will need to remove the cover. Take out the screws on the rear and any located on the sides. Remove the cover. Now you need to disconnect any wires attached to the DVD. Mark them first for easy assembly. Remove the screws holding the unit to the base and any other mounting screws. Remove the DVD and take the screws out of the sides to remove the cover.

From here it will be something which you will have to determine as every unit is different. You will probably have to remove the load assembly. This is the tricky part. Reassembly will require making sure the timing is correct.

If this seems like more than you need to deal with you may want to buy a new unit as they are not that expensive today. Another solution would be to push the door shut manually until the belt finally gives out completely.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Great ratings will keep the experts helping to solve everyone's problems. Thank you.

I have an LG RC797T. I cannot play a vcr tape because it gets stuck in the machine. Can I connect another vcr player to the LG and record to a DVD?


Yes, you can connect another VCR to the LG's video & audio input jacks and record from the external VCR. You may have to select the line input from the menu to activate these inputs.

I have Dish Network and I can't find a Code for my LG RC797T so I can get it to play


I'm assuming you are referring to using the dish network remote to control your DVD/VCR unit. Use the instructions in your Dish Network manual, mine is on page 61, "Setting up using device code tables". Refer to the table of device codes in the back of the dish manual, pg 119, to look up your manufacturer. I used the DVD codes for LG as LG wasn't listed on DVD/VCR combo codes. Try each one until one works. I have the LG RC797T and the third code worked 824. Good luck!

LG RC797T Won't read disks


I had this problem last year. It had to be sent back to the company to replace the entire dvd unit; however, I found that it probably had been caused by electrical surges. Once I got it back after repair (replacement) I put the best possible surge protector I could buy on it and have not had a problem with that issue again. The idea of a surge problem came about because I blew 3 Onkyo stereos while still in warranty several years ago and they did the same thing- would not read discs, would say no disc, etc. & the protector ended the problem.
