Good product, but the manual is rubbish.

Check out 'dubbing' in the 'manual' andthis will more or less explain how to record from VHS to a recordable disc.

Also check out 'finalizing a disc' on the onscreen menu to be able to play the disc on any other player.

Finalize the disc within the on screen menu. That's it.

SOURCE: how do I unlock my LG RC388 to play other region disks

YES, it can be changed to view all regions. I've just done my new RC388 (bought it 4 hours ago) and it works.

To start the hack:
Click the home button on the remote, go to the Setup page, highlight the 16X9 TV aspect ratio and enter in this coded sequence: 1 3 9 7 1 3 9

A new factory menu now comes up on the screen.

To change the values of these options hit the enter button and scroll with arrow keys until you get to the option you want to change. For the region code hack replace the value of "option 5" with the value of: ff

Press enter.

(Changing this value will set unit to region code 0 which should allow any region to be played on the player.)

Now, hit the "return" button to save and exit.

Switch off the machine - switch on - all is well now.

Good Luck,
Will

Can I transfer video tapes onto CD's


A lot depends on what type of video tape you use and where do you want to play the DVDs (CDs are for audio recording only). If tape is compact VHS then you can buy a simple DVD Recorder VHS VCR combo player and transfer across easily provided you have the compact VHS cassette module.

For other type of video camera tapes you will have to try other methods like connect camera with tape to a DVD recorder and directly burn the DVDs. You can buy attachments and software for PC but I have found these very cumbersome to work with.

LG DVD VCR combo recorder RC689 doesn't record in VCR


I see a RC689D model. It DOES record via VHS and it should do so as you have done before. Go through all of the steps in making sure the tape(s) you're trying to use isn't missing the "Safety" tab, look at the tape to make sure there are no defects, and make sure you are receiving a signal to the VCR. With most signals being "Digital" and not analog, I would assume you are trying to pull your signal from either a digital box, a Satellite feed, or a cable feed.

Try "Daisy chaining" your VCR from your output box using the following method(s):

Signal coming to box> (1) Coaxial or Cable hookup from box to VCR> (2) Red White Yellow connectors from source to VCR> VCR output using same method(s) as input from source to TV> make sure your TV is set to the correct channel; usually notated as either channel 3 or 4.

If you cannot get the VCR to record correctly, and you have checked and verified all of the input\output cables are properly seated, and you are getting a signal from the VCR to the TV, then it is possible the unit may just be faulty, in regards to recording onto a VHS tape.

Hope this helps.
