Question about LG RC797T
The power went out and now my DVD won't play DVDs. It reads Unknown Disc. The setup function will not allow me to Disc Initialize either. This has happened before but the DVD player started playing again. I didn't do anything.
What can I do to fix it? I tried going back to factory settings but again the player will not disc initialize. There is nothing in the manual about this problem either. If I need to enter a code into the remote how and when and what code do I enter?

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

try going to LGs website and look under support/downloads for a Firmware update, or any other updates, and install them (usually by downloading a file, then burning a DVD or CD on your PC to insert in the player.
If this helps solve your problem, please give a fixya rating, everyone of them helps. Thanks for the question

If you are using the same OS and have made no changes to software, it sounds like the drive may be faulty.
Try a disk cleaning kit and re-install the software for the program you are using.
Example, Try NERO or some other program after cleaning the drive.
Do a un-install of whatever program you may be using and re-install it.
If you can rely on the software, then the drive is probably at fault and should be replaced.
Look in systems information, under hardware configuration and look for problem devices.
Hope the helps.
Try it, it may work !!

im sorry i dont have a solution to this problem, but i tried the exact same thing and got that 0xE0 key problem, so my dad and i decided to unplug the unit and plug it back in and now the unit will not respond to the remote. did you have this problem at all? and what did you do to exit the setup screen?

how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).
The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load DVD's. The weak lens is also what's making it says "disc error" or "Unknown disc". It can still play Cd's because, Cd's does not contain large files, unlike DVD's.
Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.
By so doing your player would play all DVD's with no problem at all.
