Question about LG RH177 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

1 Answer

DVD locked in and door is not opened

Hi There

 

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.

Tried:

1) Eject butoon on the remote control and on the DVD recorder to open the door

2)unplugged overnight

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.

 

Thanks

Soheil



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

What disc should be used? DVD-R or DVD+R ?


Use DVD+R,

According to the claims of the DVD Alliance, using a DVD+R (or DVD+RW) recorder will provide the following advantages over a DVD-R recorder:
  1. Instantly eject without having to wait for finalized formatting.
  2. Ability to record one DVD disc partially on PC and partially on television.
  3. Background formatting: while the disc is being formatted, you can simultaneously record on already-formatted portions of the same disc.
  4. Enhanced ability to edit filenames, movie and song titles, and playlists.
  5. 100% compatibility with all other DVD players, while still enjoying these extra recording features.

Hi there, My problem is I have a toppro tpr2000 hd recorder and sometimes when I record and have finished, and press stop I get 'record is finalizing please wait' which then just freezes on the screen....


It won't damage the recording on your recorder it will mean you won't be able to view the disc on a different machine, possibly. The finalizing of a disc ensures the table of contents is recorded on the disc.
Try a better quality disc?

I cannot play burned dvd's from this system in other dvd players becahse I cannot finalize the dvd. How do I finalize?


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.

My disc records fine, plays great on the Magnavox, but no other player can read the disc?


You must finalize a disc before it can play on other machines. Please refer to your documentation for how to finalize a disc.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

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.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Just comes up with "Please wait" it wont load!


Hi there,

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?


greets proliant
