We have an old LG HDD DVD recorder. We are currently recording all our videos onto the hard drive and transfering them onto disc, but apparently there's some sort of code that won't allow any disc...

U can't get rid of their patended codes sorry,but u can bypass their patended codes by recoppying it all over again with a computer with a movies coppying software by buy an install software on your computer for recoppying it all over again,than u can play into any DVD player u want.

Im thinking that maybe you a have a timer recording set. The whole unit wont function at all if you turn it on via power button (remote or unit). There should be a button at the top of the remote called 'timer set' pressing this will disable that mode and allow complete use of everything. but make sure u press timer set again when powering down, otherwise simply turning off the machine will leave the timer recording disabled.

Magnovox MWR20V6 will not begin recording when it should.

This is more a work-around than a solution, as the unit is failing to function normally; however, having the identical problem I observed that the unit is failing to power on at 2:00 minutes before beginning recording, a necessary step to record to DVD.

My work-around is the following:

1) Set up the timer, inputting necessary date, time, etc. as normal. With the unit still powered on, start the timed recording mode by pressing timer set, as normal. You will see the red clock icon and the DVD logo iluminate on the VFD.

2) Press the Standby-On power button. This will power the unit on in VCR mode. You should at this time be unable to switch from VCR to DVD mode since the DVD is still in timer mode. LEAVE THE UNIT POWERED ON in this manner. The timer will function and the DVD will record normally.

I have no clue why my unit suddenly forgot how to power up on its own in order to record to DVD. If anyone has an answer for that one please post!

See if a shop will clean the optical assembly for you at a reasonable cost. Also, if you have the "finalization" feature turned off, this will cause a disc to show that message...accordianman
