LG RC689 DVD/VCR Recorder doesn't record in VCR

I once had the RC388 model and enjoyed it until the VCR started making trouble recording so i went and bought the RC689,the seller said it was exactly like the RC388 only with HD but now i hooked it up and it seems like recording to a VCR Casette is a option excluded from this product and that is the function i need most so i want to ask if this is a problem in my unit or is it build like that? What more the unit acts real sluggish,again,is it like that for everybody? It's weird to me that this is more expensive then the RC388 yet it offers less...

SOURCE: DVD Recorder Does Not Record

Yes, I agree. Dust on the lense will create this error as it did on mine. However, to save you a lot of tech fees or difficulty in dismantling the machine, just buy a can of AIR or Duster, etc. Open the DVD slide and "unplug" the unit from the wall. This will leave the door open. Lightly push the carrier back about halfway. Use a flashlight to look into the DVD and find the center area. Place the plastic tube on the air can in this area and blow it clean. Don't scrape or touch any of the mechanisms inside for safety. Plug it in and it should work if it is dust. This of course does mean that it will likely do it again and could use a 'good' cleaning as suggested above. But it is an easy quick fix. And if you are like me, I won't use it again for another six months.

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.

How do you record dvd to vhs and from vhs to dvd


For VHS to DVD, put the tape to dub in the VHS slot and a blank DVD in the DVD tray. Make sure the DVD is compatible with the DVD recorder (see the recommended disc list) and is unfinalized if you are using a R/W disc. Close the tray. Set the unit to VCR mode with the DVD/VCR button. Advance the tape to the place that you want the recording to start. Then press the Dubbing button (either on the remote or the unit itself). Select the recording mode (SP, LP etc), highlight Dubbing then press Enter or Dubbing. Press Stop to interrupt the recording.

For DVD to VHS, put a blank tape in the VCR (make sure the protection tab has not been broken off) and the DVD to duplicate in the DVD tray and close the tray. Put the unit in DVD mode by pressing the DVD/VCR button. Find the point at which you want to start recording the DVD. Again press Dubbing and set up the recording mode and highlight Dubbing and press Enter or Dubbing.

Note that copyprotected content can not be recorded.

The manual for this recorder is on the right side of the page here: http://www.lg.com/us/tv-audio-video/video/LG-dvd-recorder-RC897T.jsp . See page 48 for the screen captures of setting the recording mode part of the dubbing procedure.

I hope this helps.

I need instructions to record from vhs video player to dvd recorder


Connect the vcr to the dvd recorder via scart. Set TV to your usual dvd channel and power on dvd. Power on vcr and scroll through input channels (AV etc) on dvd recorder until you find the signal from vcr. Prepare the recorder ready to record, then play the vcr and start the dvd to record.

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

Dvd and vcr recorder


Well LG makes this unless you can find a firmware up then you must order some DvD-RW with CPRM this allows you to copy your shows once then recording over them.I got this from LG.It's a common firmware problem that started when digital signals got sent with copy right protections.
