    I have the same problem with my RC299, worked fine then I bought a DVD from the USA which wouldnt play, and got instructions from the internet, successfully made player 'region free', it worked with all DVDs for some months - now it won't play ANY DVDs (even commercial ones that previously worked) and won't record video to DVD either (records for a few minutes and then stops recording). Very frustrating. It's under warranty thankfully so I am going to contact LG but if anyone has any solutions - I'd love to know.

I also have this annoying problem - but I bought mine new on ebay and have zero after-sales support. I have tried all the hacks I cna find over the last 12 months and when I am finished, the messages all say 'congratulations, you're now region free'. But even the local DVDs don't work. Disc ejects itself with irritating message 'unknown disc'. Does anyone have this problem who has a SALES RECEIPT from an authorised LG dealer? If so, can you jump up and down with LG until they offer a solution? Thanks!

DVD will not play. DVD unknown disc please check again


Could just be a dirty lens.
Try cleaning the lens with a good quality micr-fiber cloth found in eye-glass cleaning kits. May need to wet the tip of the cloth with rubbing alcohol .

Trying to record to disc from VHS After recirding 8 copies, it now reads "Unknown disc, Please check disc" This is a Go-Video VR3845 Unit.


Hello,

I answered this question previously and the solution remains the same;

how long have you been using the player and has it ever accept blank DVD-R discs in the past.

The problem might be as a result of weak laser (lens) or the blank discs inserted might not be compatible with player.

When the laser(lens) of a player becomes weak, it will not be able to read blank discs. It only takes a very strong laser to read/accept blank discs. If it happens that the laser (lens) is the cause of the problem, then it means you will need to replace the laser (lens) to a brand new one to be able to read blank disc. Though the player might be playing DVD and CD, note that blank disc is stronger when it comes to reading from the laser (lens), it requires sharper laser. I hope you understand this.

So, insert a CD into the player and observe if it will play.If it plays, then its obvious that your laser is very weak.

Concerning the incompatibility issue, I hope you are aware that there are various kinds of empty DVD discs such as DVD +, DVD -, DVD RW. Try any of this empty DVD discs as one of them as to be compatible with this DVD recorder.

Amongst the two topics discussed above, one has to be the cause of the problem. So its up to you to figure out which is the cause of the problem.

I hope you understand the above....

I wish you good luck.

Unknown disc error


Either the lens of the DVD drive has got dirty, or the drive itself is faulty. Try cleaning the lens with a lens cleaning disk, if this does not work, return it for replacement (If it is still under warranty), or take it to a repair shop to have the DVD drive replaced.

DVD er Help


Broadcasting
Video : PAL I, B/G, I/ISECAM D/K, K1

That information is posted on LG Australia's
website that you hyperlinked to. It won't play
NTSC video because the region coding is
different - on PAL video is supported.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :P

Hope this helps,
