We have had the LD rc797t for about 6 months. Last week we noticed that we were no longer receiving the broadcast digital channels that we were receiving before and now we only receive the analog channels (this is set up through and antenna). I contacted LG and did not get an answer, just a lot of run around. Any suggestions on how to get the broadcast digital channels back?

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!
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.
im sorry i dont have a solution to this problem, but i tried the exact same thing and got that 0xE0 key problem, so my dad and i decided to unplug the unit and plug it back in and now the unit will not respond to the remote. did you have this problem at all? and what did you do to exit the setup screen?
Get into the Service Menu by entering 1397139 on the remote control like you did before and restore the original factory-set values stored in flash-memory back the way they were. One you do this your unit will function properly again. firstname.lastname@example.org
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
I think the simple solution is to NEVER EVER purchase another thing made by LG. Vote with your hard earned dollars thats how i'm going to deal with it. I have an RC797T that I really like when it works, the only problem is that every six months or so I have to pay $69 plus shipping to have the software reloaded at the service center, this so it will play dvds not the tray open tray close game. I don't think it is Best Buys problem if you don't take stuff back in 30 days they are off the hook. Get the word out tell everyone you know that LG sells junk and not to buy it. If this info was online when I was shopping for a new dvd player I would have one that works not L_ousy G_arbage.
