LG RH265 does not read DVDs


Purchase a DVD cleaning kit and follow the instructions, this will remove any dirt from the laser pickup lens, and hopefully get it up and running. If this fails, the only other option is have the whole laser assembly replaced, "expensive" or replace the entire unit.

I have an DR275 LG DVD recorder. For some reason it stopped playing DVD discs. But it will play anything else you put in it I have cleaned the heads switch it of by the power as well. What could...


The laser mechanism has a number of optical components, not just the lens. There also additional fixed lenses and mirrors inside the laser unit which are very difficult to access. If sufficient dirt builds up on these components then the dvd laser may not work properly. Unfortunately it is very difficult (or even impossible) to clean these parts.
Another possible fault is that the CD laser is usually separate to the DVD laser and the DVD laser is no longer working properly, while the CD laser is still OK. In this case, the unit is definately not repairable without replacing the whole laser unit (not a readily available item and not likely to be cheap).
If the unit is out of warranty, your cheapest option is to buy a new DVD recorder.

LG DVD recorder will not recognise any blank dvd's


The lasers do burn out, if nothing is reading, then perhaps the laser did burn out

LG RH278 HDD/DVD Recorder


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).

Dvd drive cannot read cds and vcds but can read dvds only


I had the inverse problem on my unit - 7 months after I bought it brand new it wouldn't read DVD's, but would read CD's no problem -- I bought a replacement loader from LG, swopped them out myself and now works 100%.

Turned out the laser for reading DVD's had gone - they use different lasers or wavelengths or something... :)

LG DR4912 - Optical drive motor bouncing of the end stop.


Mine was doing the same.last night i opened up the machine & took out the cd drive and opened it up.I cleaned the laser with a cotton swab and manually pushed the laser back to the front of the unit as far as it could slide on the 2 little posts it slides along.
