I have pulled apart my LG LCD tv and discovered the power supply has a blown capacitor and a fried ic on the other side of the board. Ok off to the all knowing, all seeing, internet to find a replacement one. However, it seams everyone is out of stock of PSU: 6709900017A YP4201 Rev 3, PCBs. Has LG provided an alternative? Perhaps because of a persistent failure of this board. If so, does anyone know what that P/N might be? Would be very helpful to know it. Thanks Rick W.

The SATA (data) cable on the HDD could have an intermitantly fault.Also check that you unit has the current software version.

Change the SATA cable or contact your local service center.

My LG LRH-880 HDD/DVD recorder sometimes stops recording by itself, before the end of the programming and even if there is enough disk space left.


Somehow, my HDD/DVD recorder recorded correctly 2 times last night, even if I did not do anything specific to fix. I will keep an eye on new occurences of this problem, but it appears at the moment that the issue disappeared by itself.

Recording DVD's on Samsung DVD-VR320 Recorder


See if a shop will clean the optical assembly for you at a reasonable cost. Also, if you have the "finalization" feature turned off, this will cause a disc to show that message...accordianman

Frozen hard drive


If you have a Thomson DT16300, here's a handy fix that address freeze ups, lack of reception and problems on your Hard Disk:

goto MENU screen
goto SETUP screen
goto HELP screen
At HELP screen, Enter 1397 - this accesses the engineer panel - you can reformat the HDD in this menu - you will lose all recorded programmes and planned recordings but it clears locked or corrupted files

OR - at the HELP screen, press the GREEN button

On the lower half of the screen youwill see 3 options:

Blue - Reformat HDD - clears all the memory/HDD - useful if you have a corrupted file - you will lose all recorded programmes though

Red - reset the whole box to factory settings - good if you have a locked box or reception problems or cannto scan for new channels. It goes back to when you bought the box, so you will have to input favourites and planned recordings again

Yellow - Software revert - allows you to go back to the previous software driver - you may lose new functions, but you can always restore it back again using the same feature

HDD Corrupt


I have the XS35 and the HDD drive is curropt. Can I do the following?

1. Download the Toshiba firmware update:
http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/customersupport/model_firmware.asp?model=rd-xs34

2. Burn the ISO to a CD-R disc. ImgBurn is an excellent free burner for this.
http://www.imgburn.com/

3. Insert the CD in your unit. It will auto-install the firmware. Follow onscreen instructions. Takes about 10 minutes total.

After the update, my existing HDD shows are playable again, and I can record and playback from the HDD. I bet it would be a good idea to periodically backup your shows on DVDs, and regularly reformat the HDD.
