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.

Having trouble recording TV broadcast to DVD?


My LG DVD recorder was unreliable when recording TV broadcasts to "standard" DVD disks. Frequently it would begin recording a show and then stop with a copyright error message during some commercial. I rarely got a complete show. Very frustrating!

Solution: Buy some DVD-RAM disks and this machine will become totally reliable. They are hard to find and a little more expensive than +RW or -RW. Because of the copyright programming on this machine only DVD-RAM disks will work in VR (Video Recorder) mode.

We have an old LG HDD DVD recorder. We are currently recording all our videos onto the hard drive and transfering them onto disc, but apparently there's some sort of code that won't allow any disc...


U can't get rid of their patended codes sorry,but u can bypass their patended codes by recoppying it all over again with a computer with a movies coppying software by buy an install software on your computer for recoppying it all over again,than u can play into any DVD player u want.

I can't watch all DVDs on my LG RC388 Machine, I want to be able to watch DVDs that do not have area 2 on the back. I think I want to be able to have USA area code.


Hi mwdiadem,
Make your player into "region free" so that it will play all kinds of disc. Region code hack for LG RC278 will work also to your model (RC388). Click the link below and follow the instructions.

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
