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

Hello,

Your player is actually LG RH278H correct, our selection system leaves a lot to be desired sometimes.

Anyays here's you region free hack. Copy and paste into a writer program and then print so you have it in front of you.

Choose SETUP
Scroll down to the LOCK icon
Press ENTER (you won't see any response.)
Press the 0 key 7 times

You may also want to try this one, although it sounds weird to me in my experience.

Hold down CLEAR on remote and Prog Down on DVD simultaneously for about 6 seconds, then change the value of OP6 from af to 8f.

SOURCE: LG RH278 HDD/DVD Recorder

I have an LG RH278 HDD/DVD Recorder, which was suffering from the problem that it could not play any bought DVD movies, which were previously working fine in that same player. It would however play svcd and DVD+R/-R movie discs.

The solution was to replace the laser tray. I found a new LG DVD BD lens LPC-815 laser tray here: http://www.laser-xh.com/en/?act=showproduct&proid=1147
I bought two for $5.50 each. Shipping was $32 (DHL), all together $45.10 (PayPal fees included). Delivery was fast and accurate within 3 working days (China - Sweden).

SOURCE: DVD TRAY KEEPS ON OPENING AND CLOSING CONTINOUSLY

Hi, I have exactly the same thing. Happened before but went away when I got bored trying to fix it. This time I phoned LG support and they said take it back to Comet (they have bought out their servicing). End of conversation. Polite but firm.
Appalling support via their websites, appalling products. Never again.

LG RH278 DVD recorder has no power after power outage


The power supply regulator board should be troubleshooted. It will be best to replace this board as card basis, rather than making surgery to it. You can bought this board fro the authorised service center for LG at your town.

My LG blu ray 3-D dvd player just stopped working. all it says is boot. I unpluged it but still just says boot. It was working fine. Now it wont turn on at all just says boot, its said boot for the pa


My LG 670 also said 'boot' after a upgrade attempt and appeared stuck there. I searched LG support for a factory reset option, which is: Disconnect the LG power cable from the wall / power stripHold down the power button the front of the player for 30 secondsRe-insert the power cordTurn the player back on. Note: my player showed 'boot' again for a few minutes, then shut off. When I turned it on again, it went through the normal power up cycle, then shut itself off (weird). I turned it on again. So far, so good.

I have more or less the same problem. My HHD/DVD Recorder RH278 does not read ANY CD or DVD, which were previously playing fine in the same player. Would it help to replace the laser tray and WHERE DO I...


Usually, the problem is condensation on the electronic circuits. LG has a fan which moves hot air out. If you turn on the recorder, it will get hot and dry out the moisture over time. Then the DVD will read the disk and do recording too. You may also be able to play music cd to dry out the moisture.cheap way to fix it, is to turn it on but not use it for a while.
