LG RC7723W DVD recorder/video cassette recorder

Hi,
My problem is that recently the dvd recorder would say that it had initialised my dvd+r, i could open the disc up and view the contents, it would say that it had 6hours free, but if i tried to then record to it - it would tell me that it was a protected disc. It would do this occasionally, now it says that it is initialising my disc, but it does it in like two secs then spits it out and says that it is an unknown disc.
the dvdr work fine in my computer
Please help!!!!

SOURCE: DVD player recorder won't read or play any disc

This just worked for me. Don't know how long it will last though. I found it on this webpage
http://forum.ecoustics.com/bbs/messages/15118/130292.html

To do a reset:
On the remote control press the SETUP button,
Press the right key on the remote 3 times,
The Preference page will show up,
Press the down arrow five time to highlight
"default", hit right arrow to highlight "reset"
Press enter to reset. Turn off/on machine, etc.

SOURCE: HAS SEVERAL ATTEMPTS TO INITIALISE OR RESETS WWHEN RECORDING

Ver common fault with these. Please see one of my earlier solutions shown below...

Hi there,

This is a common problem with this particular model. I can tell you what the fault is but unless you feel confident in using a soldering iron, the repair is best left to someone who is.

Ok...the fault you describe is caused by failure of IC001. This is a voltage regulator on the power board. You can identify the regulator as it is fixed to along thin metal strip near the middle of the board. It gets very hot during normal operation and will fail after a couple of years. The metal strip offers very little heat dissipation so the regulator operate in excess of its limits and therefore fails.

You need to take the lid off, remove the board which is mounted on the right hand side of the unit and replace the faulty regulator.

To remove the board, remove the fixing screw above the power connector on the back of the recorder, then the 4 fixing screws that secure the board. Next carefully remove the multi-connector that connects the board to other circuitry and lift the board clear.

A new regulator type STRG 6353 and can be obtained from several online suppliers. The old regulator can be removed by unscrewing the fixing screw, cuttiing the 5 pins with wire cutters. Then using a soldering iron, carefully removing the residual pins from the printed board making sure the print is not damaged.

Use some heatsink compound on the back of the new component, this will help it to dissipate heat more easily, use an additional heatsink if you can, which will help to prolong the life of the new regulator, then tightly secure it in position before carefully soldering the 5 pins.

Check that you have soldered it correctly without any shorted pins or tracks and reassemble the unit. I have repaired dozens of these successfully with exactly this fault.

Mains voltages can be lethal so always remove the power plug before doing any work like this and be sure of your own ability. If you're not confident in tackiling this, get someone to do it. Whatever you do, don't ditch the unit for such an easy to fix fault!

From your user name, I guess you're a radio amateur, so you should be on home territory.........
Comment by Palmbeach, posted on Feb 14, 2008 By the way, I would avoid using the recorder until you have repaired it. If the regulator shorts out, it will take several other components with it. I repaired one where a couple of diodes fried and part of the print fused and burnt, together with an internal fuse which blew.

it sounds like the dvd drive either is stuck or the drive is bad ....if its stuck you'll need to open it up ,unplug first ,then look for the lens cable and push it towards the beginning of the dvd (inside) and then start it up without closing it up ..... if it reads you're fortunate ,if the drive is bad it will not read still ..... in this case unplug again and take out the small screws that is holding the dvd in the drive and take out your dvd .....there are normally one screw on either side of it ....hope this helps ....

How to unlock region code on dvd player


Simple, buy a multi region Pioneer, they're not prohibitively expensive, less than $200.00 Aust., they upgrade themselves for HD, and you don't risk stuffing up your player, after reading some horror stories I'm taking my own advice, LG it seems can't help us (or can't)!

Format a cd


First some explanations:

The Canon DC210 will only take 'minus' format DVDs (DVD-R, DVD-R DL and DVD-RW). Only the DVD-RW must be formatted (initialised) before use. During initialisation you'' be asked whether you want to initialise the disc in VIDO mode or in VR mode.

VIDEO mode: Once finalised discs recorded in VIDEO mode can be played back in most common DVD players, offering the best compatibility. However, recordings cannot be edited (deleted, rearranged etc) on the camcorder.

VR mode: You can easily edit the recordings on the camcorder. However, discs recorded in VR mode can only be played back with DVD players that are compatible with DVD-RW discs in VR mode.

My preference is Video mode - I can then play the disc on a DVD player and edit it on a PC.

Now, to initialise a DVD-RW

1. Press the 'FUNC.' key
2. Use the joystick to select 'MENU' - it's in the bottom left corner of the screen
3. Use the joystick to select 'DISC OPERATIONS'
4. Use the joystick to select 'DISC INITIALIZE'
5. Use the joystick to select either 'VIDEO' or 'VR' mode
6. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to confirm your choice
7. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to start initialising the disc

Close the menu only after the screen display returns to the 'DISC OPERATIONS' menu.

Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !
