Eject dvd doesn'start recording

I've got a LG RH266 dvd recorder and I've this problem:
when I try to record from tv with timer function, sometimes the dvd recorder ejects (without cd or dvd inserted) and the recording doesn't start; if I try to close it, it continues to eject and I have to cancel timer and 'manually' recording.

    When I power on, The dvd r/w keeps opening and closing, so I can't do anything.

    Tried to disconnect the dvd, then nothing works at all, the front panel says "hello" and keeps saying it. I don't know if this problem is dvd or printed circuit related.

    Any solutions?

    The DVD drawer seems to have a mind of its own - opening and closing whenever a command function is given. Happens with or without a DVD

This sometimes happens when a disk is not formatted prior to recording .. the DVD is telling you it cant record on it at the time you want because it would have to format first and then start recording so missing the times you have set .
Best thing to do is use re- recordable discs only and format prior to use then the dvd should start straight away .
If not then the set has a serious read problem and requires looking at by a qualified engineer ... Regards Vortash

I am currently converting all of my old videos to dvd,my dvd recorder RH266 will not record some old videos, message "Record signal blocked" comes up, and record switches off. This happens even with some...


The recordings probably have a anti-piracy copy prevention signal imbedded which will block any attempt at copying.

There were several techniques used.

LG RH266 setup with freeview tv


Sorry to say no it wont not unless the Tv set manuel says it has a Duel Freeview feed , you have to get another freeview box for the recorder .
besides If you used the freview in the tv 1 , the tv would have to be on when you wanted to record ?. and 2 you couldnt watch another channel whilst recording another .. only 1 tuner ?. also you could only record the program you had on .at the time no timer facility .
People are still used to the Old system of VHs and the fact that all videos had tuners built in so you could watch and record .. It will come and indeed some more modern DVD recorder have freeview built in again sorry but thats the facts , and dont forget if you want the pay per view channels on free view your going to need a tuner with a pay card port ...

LG RH266 DVD Recorder no sound


Hi .. It sounds like the problem you have is incompatabilty I assume that you haven tried Phono connections instead of scart , as this sometimes cures this problem .. or when purcahsing a scart look for the Miirrored type this means that the inputs and outputs are reversed this also sometimes cures the problem as some scarts put output to output and input to input ect when actually it should be output from tv to input dvd and so on ie wrong scart and there are a few of the cheaper type that have this problem .. if you have no luck using the phono let me know ..

Recording problem with LG RH266 Recorder.


If the DVD is copy right protected then it won't record. By this I mean, you can't simply rent a DVD at Blockbuster and transfer it to the Hard Drive (use a computer to do this instead). Try using a DVD that is not protected, like a home video or a cd with MP3s

Recording problem with LG RH266 Recorder..


Just bought unit. Had same problem.Tried lots of different types of disks with no luck. Tried to play already written +R disk. Worked OK. Then took out and replaced with blank -R. Came up with new screen asking me if I wanted to initialize disk. Answered yes and it took about 20 seconds. Then tried to DUB from HDD to DVD again. This time it came up with the dubbing menu, I hadn't seen before, and worked.
Hardly ideal, but the trick was to get it to recognise it as a blank and initialize. Currently burning my first disk. Didnt realise about 'FAST' mode, so taking ages.

When you put your disc in and its ready for copying over through Dubbing - when you see the quality ie xp - just press right or left til the FAST sign comes up. it maynot always come up if the recording time is any longer than an hour or less than 30 mins.

pg 47 of your manual
