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.

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.
[this is from videohelp.com]
Press the Home button
Scroll down to the LOCK icon
Press ENTER (you won't see any response.)
Press the 0 key 7 times
A message will appear congratulating you on bbeing region free - press Enter.
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).

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.
