Can you replace the internal DVD drive for LG RC797T? This is the 2nd time the internal drive has failed; LG wants more than the unit is worth to repair.

If the DVD drive is installed in a desktop computer, you can replace it with any branded DVD drive.
If the DVD drive is in a laptop, then you are most likely restricted to one from the laptop manufacturer.

Lg dvd combo won't power up


Some one needs to at least if no power light open the unit and look for a fuse--if power light is there and will not function at all it may or may not be economical to repair this unit.

I have an LG RC797T. I cannot play a vcr tape because it gets stuck in the machine. Can I connect another vcr player to the LG and record to a DVD?


Yes, you can connect another VCR to the LG's video & audio input jacks and record from the external VCR. You may have to select the line input from the menu to activate these inputs.

I have Dish Network and I can't find a Code for my LG RC797T so I can get it to play


I'm assuming you are referring to using the dish network remote to control your DVD/VCR unit. Use the instructions in your Dish Network manual, mine is on page 61, "Setting up using device code tables". Refer to the table of device codes in the back of the dish manual, pg 119, to look up your manufacturer. I used the DVD codes for LG as LG wasn't listed on DVD/VCR combo codes. Try each one until one works. I have the LG RC797T and the third code worked 824. Good luck!

My RC797T is not recognizing some commercial DVDs


I had the same problem. Took it to a shop. They said the control chip under the DVD player was defective. It would cost more to fix than it was worth.
I think the design is defective. The DVD player probably gets too hot a the IC dies.

I have the same issue of "No Disk" error on LG RC797T DVD Rec.


There are many reasons for the message you receive. Essentially it is a generic message that indicates that the disc inside the unit is unreadable. This can be because the disk is defective, the optics are defective or the spindle motor is defective. There have been cases where I have found the controlling ICs to be defective. The most common cause is a dirty lens on the optics. Cleaning this plastic lens using a cotton swab and alcohol often resolves the problem. This may not be the case here. A good test is to attempt to play a music CD. If the CD plays OK but a DVD does not, it indicates that the controling circuitry and the spindle motor are likely to be OK and that the optics are failing.

Try cleaning the lens and report the results here.

LG RC797T Won't read disks


I had this problem last year. It had to be sent back to the company to replace the entire dvd unit; however, I found that it probably had been caused by electrical surges. Once I got it back after repair (replacement) I put the best possible surge protector I could buy on it and have not had a problem with that issue again. The idea of a surge problem came about because I blew 3 Onkyo stereos while still in warranty several years ago and they did the same thing- would not read discs, would say no disc, etc. & the protector ended the problem.

My LG SUPERMULTI dvd player mod RC797T


This sounds most likely like a bad mech assy (bad laser) only drawback is that LG does not sell just the laser but the entire mech as a whole (laser motor and case) which I belive runs around 140 to 160 from Andrews electronics
