Question about LG V181 DVD Player/VCR

2 Answers


Hi, the bit that you put the dvd onto either: a) will not open b) or when it does open and you put your dvd onto it - it slides open again c) and sometimes it stays closed but will not play the dvd - movies or music.
I have no idea what the problem is but I know its really annoying!! I would appreciate your advise. Its only just 2 years old and has not had very much use.

First, the two of you Don't have the same problem. Now then, the unit that won't play DVDs needs an alignment or replacement of the optical assembly. The VCR unit has a bind of some sort in the carriage load assembly...accordianman

I have a lg dvd/video player RC689D. when I record videos onto dvds the resultant dvd will play on the lg dvd player, but not on any other dvd player or computer. How can I solve this?

There must be some sort of copy guard designed in the hardware to prevent usage with another machine to make sure it stays with the original owner. I have come across this the odd time to prevent transfer to another machine. There might software that may be able to help you to solve the problem.

How do I connect my lg drt389h dvd recorder to my ferguson fl26wx1 tv. I can play dvd's but i'm unable to record anything from my sky box.

Hi, When you bought your DVD player it comes with 1 type of cable. RCA type cable 2 audio and 1 video. Yellow for video and red and black for audeo. Your TV should have RCA plugs on back and match them up with DVD player. Most DVD player now come with optical out put, TV must have input to complete. If you have that you can get better sound from them. Good luck

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 recorded video from my Sony Handycam to the RH387H HDD and then wrote the video onto a DVD-R disc using the XP setting (instead of SP, LP.....). The disc can only playback now on the LG387H, but cannot...

make sure the disk is finalised after recording, if this does not help then the bit-rate it uses for xp may not be compatable with other dvd players, in which case stick to sp,lp or dual-layer sp is best if ou can.

LG DR4810 DVD recorder says disk is full when it's not.

Have you tried a different disc? Some discs do go faulty. Is the disc compatiable with the machine? Try erasing the disc and starting again.

Make sure you have finalised the disk, otherwise it won't play back on other players. Also there are two standards that you can use to record onto disks, video mode or VR mode. Video mode was the original standard but it wouldn't let you edit or add anything to the recording afterwards but it is more compatible with other players. VR mode allows you to edit the recording but is less compatible for playback on other players.
