    I have the same problem. I turn the DVD recorder on and it repeats "hello" endlessly. It fiannly turns off without doing anything. The problem started when I switched teh unit off at teh power point without first turning off the player itself.

    There is a bad capacitor in the power supply that controls the 12V going to the HDD and DVD player. When you turn it on, the 12v drops to 7 volts and the unit turns it self back off. You just get the "hello" message briefly. You need to replace the part (1000uf, 25v), it's probably showing signs of bursting at the top or bulging.

    I noticed this in a 397d that came to me from a relative. I've just replaced this part in it and it's come good again.

    See bad caps at www.badcaps.net for why this happens.

Problems starting up my LG RH188H


I had the same problem. After googling I found that the HDD might be faulty so I unplugged the device, brought it upstairs to unscrew it (to change the HDD for an empty new one). One last check before I really unscrewed the cover - and the recorder started again! After 5 minutes the 'please wait' returned. So, did the same thing again, tried a few times, and the recorder started. Then, I imediately reformatted the HDD, and the problem is now gone.

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

When I turn on LG 1888H dvd recorder, it just says please wait but nothing happens. Can it be a HD problem?


Your DVD loader (DVD player) has some kind of malfunction. (dirty lens, bad build, etc...)
Just stick a new PC IDE DVD player in it and it will start working. I had the same problem.
I used a lite on made in 2004 and the RH1888 works prefect, but does not look perfect. The drive is won't work in conjunction with a it's original face panel.
I blue tacked the display on the top of the chassis, and got the big ol' lite-on drive sticking out front, but it works perfectly.
Good Luck!
