    Thank you for your help ...

    Of course I already unplugged the RH 177 from the wall = it does not help...

    I tried to clean the lens but I am not sure of efficiency ...

    Before I take it to the after sale service (very difficult to find in France) what do you think about upgrade the firmware ??

    Where and how can I proceed ?

    Thanks for your help

Unplug the recorder from the wall, and restart and check you you get the same error.
Try clean the lens head with a len cleaner disk. That should fix the issue. If still no go then you need to take it to a repair center, as the laser lens or the laser pickup assemble could be faulty.

Let me know if you need further assistance

check to see what format your computer burns on.[ex:dvd-r, dvd-rw,dvd-+r,dvd-+rw]different dvd players play certain dvd formats.the format for burning on your computer is probably different from the dvd players that aren't playing the also must finalize the burned disc.

Lg rh177

Could be the dvd player/lens. The player sucks up dust through the
player's caddy and after a while it won't read discs anymore.
A cd cleaner or a good (gently dosed) blow with compressed air might help.
