After finalizing the DVD, I just get "Please, Wait" on the front panel and DVD recorder door is not openeing at all.
According to the noise from DVD recorder it seems that DVD keeps stop and start rotating.
1) Eject butoon on the remote control and on the DVD recorder to open the door
3)Reset the device by pressing power button longer than 5 seconds(no changes noticed in resetting)
none of the above worked, please advise me what to do.
Worked well and played back fine until a few days later when the units would not start up again and only display "PLEASE WAIT" forever. Tried resetting the units, but they just won't 'reconnect' to a stage where I can do anything . This is for a L.G. RH7521W

Recording tv program or duffing none codes dvd disc,must wait it for finalizing code done completely before can take it out or can be watching it on the same DVD recoder player or a compatible one.Record other disc,just must wait the disc to completely finalizing it final codes,the disc should play with no problems.
The recording may have used all the media on the disk because you let it run until it was full. Now, there is no room to finalize the disk.
Play this back on the machine where it was recorded while recording it to another DVD recorder.. This time, BE THERE to stop the recording. Set the recorder to a speed that leaves at least 10 minutes extra space for finalization.
The on/off control is part of the upper left corner of the device rather than being on the face of the unit or behind a panel. It was a bit too well disguised for me to see it, but my 11-year-old son, Seth, discovered it all too quickly. The DVD door problem was resolved by returning the out-of-box purchase to the store for one that was operational. With an older TV, though, I have yet to properly connect the VCR/DVD recorder so that it plays or records in conjunction with the TV. There is no coaxial cable I/O on the combination recorder to connect to the back of the set.
had the same problem the mechanism for the door opener is faulty.........waited for 2 months to be finally told by samsung part is no longer available......wonderful back up service isnt it. Luck have it I had an extended warranty and getting it replaced with a LG combo
My compliments to the foresight of your father. Your described concern is not caused by a "lock". It is indicative that the recording session was not 100% completed. Rather than 'crack', what is required is the final step in the recording. All the DVDs must be "finalized" in the same machine that recorded the movies, the Panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-ES30V. The finalize option would be in the MENU/Settings and must be enabled. Finalization per disc would take some time.
I had a RH 178 with the same problem. I opened case and removed the plate with the 2 drive cables and the front lcd cable. Simply wait a few mins and plug it back in, connect the 3 cables and use the 4 srews and VOILA it runs!!
No more "please Wait"
I think it was a connection problem with the "uplink" to mainboard (not the three drive cables and LCD). Can someone please report if it works with his LG?
For those users who just bought their machines, I would suggest warranty service. Roxanne2 should contact Philips directly with the seiral number, and they should be able to say which store they sold it to. That unit probably has a bad internal DVD writer drive.
The following solution should only be done if your machine is out of warranty unless you get permission from the manufacturer, as it will likely void the warranty otherwise:
Unplug the unit, disconnect all cables and move it to as static-free of an area as possible. Remove the cover, which usually means removing a lot of screws. Most DVD recorders have regular drives like you see in PCs. There is usually a tiny hole in the lower-right part of the drive that you can stick a small wire into, such as an unbent paper clip. You can then manually pull the drive open to get the DVD out.
to open the tray during "please wait", remove casing then loosen front panel (clips either side and underneath). Power up to get "please wait", then press small microswitch in bottom right corner of the DVD player unit.
Have you tried resetting the unit (turning on and holding the power button for at least 5-10 seconds)?
Have you tried unplugging the unit for a longer period of time (24 hours)?
