This happened to me. I searched web and found out that most people said it was a problem with blown capacitors. My brother knows how to solder, so I had him check it out. He soldered on two capacitors with very little trouble and the machine was fixed.
Don't overload your hard drive! I now have a U99 Error code and they say it can not be fixed. Erase video after you have transferred. They do not make these machines with a hard drive for recording anymore.

This message is displayed when the device is checking for its hard drive and DVD drive to signal back that they are operational. You can consider this a bit like the BIOS of a computer as it is waiting for its devices to come back with a "READY" signal. If "PLEASE WAIT" is scrolling across your screen for a really long time it could mean that the two devices with moving parts (HDD / DVD) may be having an issue coming up. UNPLUG unit from wall. Wait for some time (5 min) and then plug it back in. If your device is still not working then you have either a bum HDD or a bum DVD. Considering which one is working all the time (HDD) you probably have a dead hard drive, but my own unit's DVD drive went nuts, so that is also a potential source of the problem.
Either way, your local computer repair store can have a look at this issue, considering what the unit is is basically a single purpose PC

You need to replace the STR-G6353 voltage regulator on the power supply board.

I did this on my DMR-E85H and it now works like new.
This machine has problems with the power supply board that can cause a continuous please wait on system check or please wait triggered by trying to dub to DVD-R. The first problem is likely to occur with the older power supply boards and the DVD dub problem on the later boards. The bad capacitor problem was on the earlier power supply boards. The following link is to the solution for this http://www.fixya.com/support/t216825-dvd_recorder_frozen_please_wait_display The later power boards have a voltage regulator problem and the fix for this is at http://www.rbjtech.net/electrical/e85/e85.htm#0 You will notice from the photos that the early and later boards look different so it's easy to see which one you have. I replaced the voltage regulator in my machine and it now works like new.
I had a RH 178 with the same problem. I opened case and removed the plate with the 2 drive cables and the front lcd cable. Simply wait a few mins and plug it back in, connect the 3 cables and use the 4 srews and VOILA it runs!!
No more "please Wait"
I think it was a connection problem with the "uplink" to mainboard (not the three drive cables and LCD). Can someone please report if it works with his LG?
Try resetting the e85 back to factory defaults. You need to simultaneously hold down: Fast Reverse, Time Slip, and Open/Close buttons for about 10 seconds.
Be sure to go back into setup to set up the box the way you need it again.
FYI...the best suggestion I've seen is to hold the channel up and play buttons simutaneously....thereby causing the machine to return to the "factory initialized" state. So far so good for me. We'll see. photog1
my brother take your set to a tech to let them have a look on your set.if you are not a tech you might cause more problem.your problem is a microchip.if it is not damage the tech will lift it from out of the set to reset itself and there after resoldering it back onto the chassis.good luck.
