Question about LG RHT599H 500GB HDD DVD Recorder with Freeview

Disk won't eject

I inserted a disk this afternoon into my machine. Unfortunately, not only did the machine not seem to recognise the disk, but it now won't eject. It's stuck on 'read' and if I switch off and back on, it makes no difference. I also can't change back to HDD mode without switching on and back on. I can't seem to find a manual release for the drive and and I just want to get the disk out. Any thoughts will be gratefully received. Thanks

Hi,

Normally all readers have a mechanical system that can be accessed from the front or the back of the reader to open using a small tool. Normally it's a little hole (like on smartphones) where you can insert a metal piece and push on it to eject the drawer.

My game won't work because it need's a update


This can be a fairly easy fix if done correctly. I am a repair tech in Ga. and recently ran into this little trickster of a problem. Try this,,,
Power the console off. Press eject and insert a DIFFERENT game (I always use the Halo 4 install disc)
Your system is looking for a required update but it seems the disc you are using may be corrupt or damaged.
After trying a different game disc it should work out for ya. If not you can try this method.


Eject any discs. Power system off.

DVD won't eject or play


Use a bent paperclip and insert it into the small hole on the front of the player. This should cause the disk to eject. Reload the DVD and try again.

Can't figure out how to insert SD card in Lenovo thinkpad T420


Typically there is an spring-load eject on laptop card readers. If you inserted it correctly, then you can gently push the card in about 1/4 inch, it will click, and it will eject when you release it.

Hello
The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

Plug the flash drive into the windows PC first and open "Computer". Find the drive and format it to Fat32 or NTFS. Now plug it into the mac and copy the pictures too it. Now your Windows computer should see the files. Mac will default to making the flash drive use HFS+ filesystem. Windows doesn't recognize this format at all. Mac will see fat32 and ntfs just fine though.

Power off the notebook, remove power cable and battery. Then try inserting a paper clip into the small hold in the CD drive to force eject the tray. Make sure you have powered off device and removed battery before you attempt.

Braun tassimo does not recognise cleaning disc, but does work wit coffee pod!


The problem is that the barcode on the cleaning disk is recessed unlike those on the pods. It seems that the reader has difficulty reading the barcode that is slightly further away than normal.

I've had this problem this afternoon and solved it by carefully peeling off the barcode from the cleaning disk and "fattening it up" with foam tape then re-applying to the plastic cleaning disk. Works perfectly now, just as well as I was close to throwing the whole machine at the wall.

Hope this helps someone
