Once the setting for progressive scan output is entered,
an image will only be visible on a progressive scan
compatible TV or monitor. If you set Progressive Scan
to On in error, you must reset the unit.
1) Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc
tray. See that "NO DISC" is displayed on the display
2) Press STOP and hold it for five seconds before
releasing it. The video output will be restored to the
standard setting and a picture will once again be visi-
ble on a conventional analog TV or monitor.

Re: LG V8824w DVD/VCR no video

1. DO ALL OF THIS WITH THE UNIT NOT PLUGGED IN TO THE 240 VOLT SUPPLY ! 2. Remove the cover. 3. Remove the four screws that anchor the DVD drive unit in place and lift UP the drive unit carefully. 4. Remove the two flat cables connected from DVD unit to the motherboard, by Grasping the end of each between forefinger and thumb and pulling VERY GENTLY. 5. Now have a very close look at the ends of each of the cables. Look for any sign of bent or cracked exposed metal track. IF it looks perfect, just WIPE IT clean with some WD40 and spray a little WD40 into each of the sockets the cables fit into then refit everything and test it. HOWEVER, IF THE FLAT CABLE ENDS LOOK BENT OR JADED OR DAMAGED IN ANY WAY.....get a very good pair of scissors and trim off the ends PERFECTLY SQUARE by 1mm or 2mm to give a "NEW END" appearance. 6. Plug the cables back in VERY carefully with minimum force and make sure that they are in-line and truly parrallel with the socket. 7. Refit the DVD drive and test the operation of the DVD player. I have found this fixes 95% of this kind of problem. Anthony ( Technician)

It could be that the dvd player is plugged into its wrong spots if it is hooked up seperately

I can not get picture when vhs is playing

This a typical symptom of a dirty video head. People get confused because there is no sound. You see most of all VCR's are designed to mute the sound till the picture is OK. So as soon as you clean the video head using a cleaning tape and get a good picture on the screen you won't get any sound.

It sounds like you may have your vcr connected via composite cable. Check the back of your VCR and follow the cable to your TV. You should see a Red, White and Yellow connection on both ends. The Yellow connector is the video.

Here is an image to help you find it:

LG dvd player/vcr combo' dvd works fine. vcr records/play, has sound has NO PICTURE? PLEASE HELP

Possible that the VIDEO HEAD is dirty , could be clogged with ferrite dust or fungus from an old cassette. If you have a cleaning tape please try it ON the set for sometime.
If not a manual cleaning can help but with great caution as the tiny ferrite heads on the Head drum is very fragile. So use a piece of paper to carefully rub along the drum using soft action , DO NOT ATTEMPT HARD ACTION GET THE FERRITE CAUGHT INTO.
If there is no result the head can be faulty but it can be confirmed after a close check up or a continuity test after removing. Require good experience to attempt.

LG V8824w DVD/CD - Disc Error

I bought a lg lst3510A at a yard sale for 20 bux. Lady said that it was new and had never been used. Plugged it in and got disc error when trying to play a dvd. I removed the cover and gently slid the lens pickup to the far back I DO MEAN GENTLY.... IT SEEMS LIKE IT HAD LOST ITS HOME POSITION. This worked for me. IF YOU TRY THIS MAKE SURE THAT YOU UNPLUG THE DVD PLAYER FIRST. Good luck and I hope this works for you.
