If the tapes are commercial type movies being bought at a store some time ago, the system will detect it as copy right protected and will not let you make a copy. I've had the problem in the past many times, but if the tape is a home made movie taken with a video camera, it should let you copy it. Some video to pc software does this even with homemade video movies, very frustrating and annoying some times.
Look very closely at that DVD, Richard. Look for fingerprints or scarring near the transparent center section - DVD recording always starts in the middle and progresses outward, the opposite of vinyl records.
The optical laser pickup is fu.k.d up. You might as well throw away this cheap piece of sh.t and buy you a Sony or Pioneer. There is a reason why name brand costs a little more- they invest in R&D and product quality testing.
If your handy you can open this puppy up and install a new optical lens, but why bother when you can just go out to the store and pick up a decent DVD player at a reasonable price.
I have the same problem with the same model LG, bought a year ago. It only gives the 'Record-blocking signals detected' message when there's something I really want to record. Over the winter it was Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice. Today it is the British Open Golf from Turnberry. We are out tomorrow, for the last day of play and can't record!!!!! It seems this player has build in blocking signals even to channels we can normally watch. Any help would be appreciated - before tomorrow, July 19th.
I had a similar problem with CDs. The cure in my case was a new drive. It is possible that the lens on the laser is dirty in which case it should be cleaned. Your local shop should stock cleaning kits,
