SOURCE: Recording problem with LG RH266 Recorder..

Just bought unit. Had same problem.Tried lots of different types of disks with no luck. Tried to play already written +R disk. Worked OK. Then took out and replaced with blank -R. Came up with new screen asking me if I wanted to initialize disk. Answered yes and it took about 20 seconds. Then tried to DUB from HDD to DVD again. This time it came up with the dubbing menu, I hadn't seen before, and worked.
Hardly ideal, but the trick was to get it to recognise it as a blank and initialize. Currently burning my first disk. Didnt realise about 'FAST' mode, so taking ages.

SOURCE: LG RH289H DVD Recorder Unknown Disc. Please check disc again.

I have had the same problem a few times. All I do is eject and re-insert the disk until it recognises it, this seemed to work for me

SOURCE: LG RH265 - Problem when trying to register blank disk/dubbing

The DVD needs to initialise the disk first. Come out of the HDD dubbing menu and press DVD on the remote. The blank recordable disk should be recognised and you should see Initialise disk? on the screen. Press Start and hey presto, you can now dub from the HDD Movie dubbing menu (as per the manual instructions).

Dvd player tell me disk error


this could be aproblem with the lens which is unable to read the disk. this could be caused by accumulation of dirt on the disk sensor. open up the cover of the dvd player to access the lense and clean gently with a lense cleaner(a liquid purposely meant for cleaning the lense) apply this liquid on a soft piece of cloth and clean. close back the cover and power the dvd player it should now be able to load the disk

AVion DVD Recorder won't record


Hi,

There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)

2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)

3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.

You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.

Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.

Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.

I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG IDE DVD roms and IDE DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.

Let me know how it goes.

My LG RH177 does not read and write DVD-R anymore. DVD+R disks work well at the moment. Any idea? Thank you.

Previously recorded disks and new disks all-dirty disk rejection


you may need to go thru the cleaning process a couple of times since it has never been cleaned ,but I'm glad there is a for sure improvement
that was my thinking about the laser lens cleaning disc , I have helped alot of people with thier player as well because they to did not know of the disc either. they do not advertise it enough for people to always hear about it or include the cleaning process and recommendations(maybe because they want you to buy a new one is about right!)
sometimes they get so dirty the laser lens has to be cleaned manually ( with a q - tip and the disc solution )
if you have anymore questions don't hesitate to ask

Lg dr275 does not recagnize any disk


This can be as simple as a dirty lens or more drastic like defecitve optics. If you can access the lens, try cleaning it using a cotton swab and alcohol. Next try playing a music CD. If the CD willplay OK, but hte DVD will not, then the optics are failing and will need to be replaced.

Keep us posted.

LG DVD RECORDER MODEL DV7711P


I have had this on a number of other players. First try the disks in question on another DVD player after giving them a thorough clean. If they work there then you know the problem is not with the disks.

After that (assuming the RH299 is actually working in every other respect e.g. on HDD), run a laser cleaning DVD/CD in the machine to clean the laser lens. If your machine is out of warranty then you can try opening it and cleaning the laser lens with rectified spirits/pure alcohol. Then try the disks again. If they still don't play, then it's off to a local electronics expert to see if realigning or replacing the laser and transport mechanism is economically viable, or buy a new machine.

LG DVD Recorder "Unknown disk error"


I have the same problem with my LG DVD player, with some discs saying disc error all of a sudden. I solved the problem by cleaning the lens of the laser very gently. The player must be opened to reach the lens. It is very important to get the plug off the mains so as no electricity supply is in the DVD player. The lens was cleaned by using a soft dry cotton bud (those used to clean the ears). NO solutions liquids etc. were used. Well, till now the problem has been solved. The lens was full of dust which come from the static of DVD's. The rest of the inside of the DVD was generally clean.

Unreadable disk error


The laser in 5101 could be defective or maybe just dirty.Try cleaning with a commercial cleaning disc,put a drop of rubbing alcohol on cleaning brushes.When this happens sometimes it will still be a usable disc but not always.Try putting in another dvd player or recorder or your PC if it plays dvds,the readers in PC are of a better quality and will often read discs that those cheap dvd readers can't.
R+ or R- discs need to finalized after recording RW+and RW- discs do not.It is always a good policy to finalze the second your recording is finished otherwise it may not play in other players or recorders.
When you make a recording in a dvd recorder an it doensn't recognize the disc it just recorded it quite often has a defective laser.This particular model has been plagued with early laser failure.
