Question about LG RC797T

1 Answer

How can I reset the Code Options Listed on Service Technicians Menu?

I sucessfully entered 1397139 on my remote and got to the 'secret 'Option menu. I changed Option 5 to ff(making it region-free) however I must have accidentally changed a few other Options by mistake because now it won't accept any blank media such as DVD+r or DVD+r/w. It says "unknown disc" and ejects them, I can't even initialize them. What I need to know is what the original factory set codes were for Option 1 thru 8, so I can reset the ones I made an error on. Any LG Techs out there?? Dave

In 480p resolution, you highlight the 16.9 aspect ratio from the TV Aspect menu option in Setup and then type 1397139 on the remote. This brings up the service screen with all options and machine information.
Optimal (best) settings are as follows.
1 : f 2 2 : 35 (this is DivX)
3 : 93 (macrovision?) 4 : f f (Vcd/Svcd)
5 : f f (region free) 6 : c0 (c0 = LG logo)(ce = Insignia)
7 : 04 8 : 15
All I can say is Keep these and and dont mess around or you can kill it....
