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).

    Hi e95cg - I was thinking of the same thing. Does that now enable your player to play bluray now?

    Hi e95cg I was referring to the LG RH278. Can you also get an HDMI output to upgrade the picture output?

I have more or less the same problem. My HHD/DVD Recorder RH278 does not read ANY CD or DVD, which were previously playing fine in the same player. Would it help to replace the laser tray and WHERE DO I...


Usually, the problem is condensation on the electronic circuits. LG has a fan which moves hot air out. If you turn on the recorder, it will get hot and dry out the moisture over time. Then the DVD will read the disk and do recording too. You may also be able to play music cd to dry out the moisture.cheap way to fix it, is to turn it on but not use it for a while.

DVD RECORDER MODEL R175, I CAN PLAY MUSIC CD'S BUT WHEN I PUT A MOVIE DVD INTO, IT DISPLAY "NO DISC" AND SOMETIMES A BLACK SCREEN ON TV.


It is quite a common problem. What I do in my shop is to open the unit, and replace the DVD writer (is the same as a standard PC one) with another IDE DVD writer. (any model will work, but I try keep LG with LG etc)
Once you replaced the drive all should be back to normal. (I also use LG dvd writers on Daewoo recorders)
Hope this helps.

I have recordered many home movies to a dvd+r


Dvd+r disks are the least compatible to most devices.

Try using Dvd-r instead.

SAMSUNG HR733 DVD RECORDER WILL NOT PLAY ANY REGION DISCS AT ALL


On page 45 of the user manual it says this:

Both the HDD & DVD RECORDER and the discs are coded
by region. These regional codes must match in order for the
disc to play. If the codes do not match, the disc will not play.
The Region Number for this HDD & DVD RECORDER is
described on the rear panel of the HDD & DVD RECORDER

If you changed the region codes on your player it will not work. They should be set back to 1 or whatever your model says on the back of the unit.

If this unit was purchased outside the United States, it may not work in the United States.

Here is a copy of the manual if you need it:

Won't read a DVD-video disc.


Yes, and that's actually a bargain...
If it's cleaning - they'll go in and clean the laser, play table assembly, check the alignment and adjust the amplitude. In addition, I would assume a full cleaning interior and exterior. For that same service here we charge $70.00 dollars plus tax and we're the least expensive shop in our area.

The cd tray eject after put in the DVD movies, but VCD working fine...it is means that the drive's region code haven't set yet .(please refer to user manual to setting the region code) ..or unplug the recorder drive from the dvd player,using the computer setting to change the region code by connecting to computer's IDE cable .
