    DVD-R155 worked fine on standard tube TV connection, but when hooked to a plasma with HDMI or Component cables, won't play DVDs. When POS light is lit, it won't play. It will however, play CD-R, DVD-R disks, just not purchased DVDs.

    Doesn't matter what TV connection, doesn't play recorded or pre-recorded DVD's, but does play VHS tapes. Tried a DVD cleaner, but had no luck.

This is exactly response I would like to hear - an expert opinion!

What I did with help of 1mm-wide screwdriver:

1) There were two surface-mount potentiometers marked with C1 and D. I tried first D. Turned it clock- and counterclockwise by about 45 degrees.
2) After each turn I opened and closed tray to force the player read DVD disc.
3) It did not help, "NO DISC", then I tried the same with C1, and again, no luck.
4) Finally, I came back to D and turned it by about 180 degrees in one direction. IT WORKED!!!

Moreover, seem that now player reads content of the DVD discs faster then before. Probably manufacturer did not really adjust it properly and upon the time something has degraded, so it failed eventually.

I recently bought an LG RHT599 digital TV recorder with 500Gb hard drive and DVD burner, the problem is I am unable to play all my VCDs that i had been using before. I can only play DVDs. I also cannot...

Unless it states in the user manual that it can play VCDs I think it's safe to say that it doesn't surport that format. Without knowing what connections the Cable TV has, I can't help there. But this scart switching box might help. You can get them on places such as Amazon. It also has video and phono RCA sockets.
