SOURCE: lg rh7500 dvd recorder

I have had 3 replacements of of this models so far & they all end up with the same fault & not recognising discs I am going to take action under unfit for purpose consumer legislation. A cheap thirty quid player purchased at the same time reads all the discs no problem there is something seriously wrong with the RH7500 It may be be 1 production batch or a design fault with the whole lot but we should be able to expect more than a year & a bit use for something that cost 200 odd quid.

SOURCE: My LG RH278 just says Please Wait when I start it but nothing happens.

Had same problem on sameLG unit. Found a Sony blog with same issue described and solution was a blown capacitor on the power supply circuit. Opened my unit and sure enough there was a bulging cap. Replaced it and starts up like normal. 90c repair. 53c88b9.jpg6643815.jpg

No turn on but a message on the display. The message is PLEASE WAIT


Hello,

This message is displayed when the device is checking for its hard drive and DVD drive to signal back that they are operational. You can consider this a bit like the BIOS of a computer as it is waiting for its devices to come back with a "READY" signal. If "PLEASE WAIT" is scrolling across your screen for a really long time it could mean that the two devices with moving parts (HDD / DVD) may be having an issue coming up. UNPLUG unit from wall. Wait for some time (5 min) and then plug it back in. If your device is still not working then you have either a bum HDD or a bum DVD. Considering which one is working all the time (HDD) you probably have a dead hard drive, but my own unit's DVD drive went nuts, so that is also a potential source of the problem.

Either way, your local computer repair store can have a look at this issue, considering what the unit is is basically a single purpose PC

Just comes up with "Please wait" it wont load!


Hi there,

I had a RH 178 with the same problem. I opened case and removed the plate with the 2 drive cables and the front lcd cable. Simply wait a few mins and plug it back in, connect the 3 cables and use the 4 srews and VOILA it runs!!

No more "please Wait"

I think it was a connection problem with the "uplink" to mainboard (not the three drive cables and LCD). Can someone please report if it works with his LG?


greets proliant

LG RH289H DVD Recorder Unknown Disc. Please check disc again.


I have had the same problem a few times. All I do is eject and re-insert the disk until it recognises it, this seemed to work for me
