Re: please wait!

You can probably turn it off and back on and push the button really quick as it is coming on to get it to open and let you have the disc. Once it is open you might want to try blowing it out to make sure there isn't any dust in there. That could be causing the problem.

The first and foremost thing is that you verify that your dvd recorder is compatible with DVD+R discs and not just DVD-R.. This can cause the problem's you are having with it, you can check the manual to see what media types it accepts.

After apprrox 5 mins unit switches off

Not sure if this will help, but mine acted up similarly before it went with a message of "Please Wait" on the display at all times. Searched the web, found out two capacitors needed to be replaced. My brother was able to easily solder the parts in a very short time. Google the name and model number with the words Please Wait and you can see how many folks have had this problem. Your machine may be on its way to this problem.

I have good friends that got their machine at the same time. Same thing happened to them within one month of me telling them about it. Our machines are about 4 years old as well.

Another big problem. I then got a U99 Error Code. Completly frozen machine. From my researcy I may have caused the problem by storing too much on hard drive. Once you transfer video, get it off the hard drive. They say mine can not be fixed. Problem is, they do not make them anymore. No hard drives for recording or dubbing DVDs.

I have other problem but I know how to solve the 'load' problem. Just hold on to power on button for 4-10 seconds, the player will turn off and reset itself. Mostly this will solve the problem. Problem most likely due to incompatible disc or the menu selection jump to quickly. Hope this help.

My problem is that my recorder no longer output any sound, just like that!! Any help will be appreciated.

"please wait"!

Is there not a drawer open/close button? Please wait usually indicated wrong type of disk and it is not being read or faulty laser. Switch it off and switch on then press the drawer release before it starts trying to read.

LG DR-4810 DVD Displays " PLEASE WAIT"

to open the tray during "please wait", remove casing then loosen front panel (clips either side and underneath). Power up to get "please wait", then press small microswitch in bottom right corner of the DVD player unit. Have you tried resetting the unit (turning on and holding the power button for at least 5-10 seconds)? Have you tried unplugging the unit for a longer period of time (24 hours)? get your firmware upgrade through here(sorry its in german, you might be able to get an english of it through the LG site) - two cd's- bootloader.iso , update.iso Good luck
