Question about LG RC897T DVD Recorder/VCR Combo

2 Answers

LG rc897t VCR/DVD player will not complete the power up sequence. When powered on, the Tape motor starts for a few seconds, the HELLO comes on for about one minute then goes to dashed lines at the bottom but nothing works. Pressing the door button on the DVD only starts up the same sequecne. Removing the powere cord and holding the power button for about a minute does not help.

A hard reset MAY (but is not guaranteed to) resolve this problem. To do a hard reset, unplug the unit, then hold the power button on the main unit down for 30 seconds. Plug back in and see if the problem is resolved. If not, mail-in repair will be $69 plus parts and shipping. New DVD/VCR units start at $90 elsewhere.

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.

You can reset the unit as follows:
  1. Press and hold the Power button or at least 5 seconds. This will force the unit to power off then turn the unit back on.
  2. Unplug the power cord, wait at least five seconds, and then plug it in again.

Need code for Viore TV to program LG RC897T DVD/VHS Recorder


I believe Viore is the same as Samsung. I only noticed this by accident as I bought a Viore TV and my friend bought a Samsung and I noticed both remotes were identical. I tried the Samsung codes and the remote worked. Good luck! Kevin
