You made 2 mistakes:
1 - HDD - Hard Disk Drive = the hard disk that is inside your player, you have to record to it from your dvd only unit before playing something of it.
2 - there is no blue-ray DVD. It's either a BR-disk = BluRay -disk or a DVD, no mixup possible
To put it simply your DVD player can't play BR disks, it doesn't have the laser to read and the software to decode them so it will simply recognize them as damaged.
It's an old model that is even incapable of upscaling - a process by which SD (Standard Definition) signal from the DVD is converted by the player to HD (High Definition).
If you want to view a BR-disk you will gonna have to buy a new player, this time a BR player,not a DVD player.

I accidentally changed the settings on my remote control using the on screen menu from dvd1 to dvd2


I'm not sure the question - perhaps your TV is set to the DVD2 input and it's not a DVD issue.
If so, using your TV remote, push the "input" button until you reach your desired input.

I have an old sanyo vwm 710 vcr. I have a new hdtv. I can play tapes on the tv if I change the input on the tv. I have selected line 1 on the vcr, but cannot get any channels to come on to record. The...


Not really a solution....RCA customer services (from India, I think), says that there is no way with that VCR because both the front and back (red, yellow,white) ports are input, and the only other jack on the tv is the one for the antenna. Since the digital converter is inside the tv, a splitter would do no good.
I would still have to get either a new VCR with the digital converter in it or get another converter box. An atmosphere of bait and switch is covering this hdtv scheme....

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).

1) Insert the DVD and you'll get the blue screen.

(If you have more than one tv, the unit itself will have the blue screen but the additional tv's you have plugged in will NOT, they will show the dvd menu. Thus you will be able to see the hidden menu on the additional screens after inputting the code, but not on the main unit because of its blue screen.)

2) On the main remote, push stop twice and then 1, 2, 6, 4

3) Push the joystick on the unit SOUTH twice and then click it once.

4) Press SYS SETUP on the main remote twice to save your settings.


It may take a few tries but you'll get it. This method can be done if you don't want to bother temporarily activating the brake sequence, but if you only have the unit and no additional tv's, its #$%^&* damn hardbecause you can't see the settings your changing.

Hi Barb22,

Sounds faulty to me, I'd take it back to the store and get a replacement. However, I guess you want that DVD out first? I'm not sure this will work because the units logic board is mostly likely faulty and will prevent the DVD transport from opening. Unplug the unit and press the eject button, keeping it pressed plug the unit back in. If the unit does not come on then press the power button too. If the unit starts to open release the button immediately. It's unlikely to eject, but you might get lucky.

Sorry I can't be of much further help.

Regards,

Spare head 2
