Question about LG DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

While having one too many beers my friend managed to use the remote to get to the 'secret' Service Technician Menu for my LG RC797T DVD recorder to make it Region free. This he did mange to do, however his finger must have changed one of the other Options because now it won't accept any blank media such as DVD R or DVD RW's. It just says "unknown disc" and ejects it. It does play finalized media. What I need to know is what the ORIGINAL factory set Option Codes are, so I can reset them. Please someone help me!! Is there an LG Tech out there?

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....

I have an LG RC797T. I cannot play a vcr tape because it gets stuck in the machine. Can I connect another vcr player to the LG and record to a DVD?


Yes, you can connect another VCR to the LG's video & audio input jacks and record from the external VCR. You may have to select the line input from the menu to activate these inputs.

I have Dish Network and I can't find a Code for my LG RC797T so I can get it to play


I'm assuming you are referring to using the dish network remote to control your DVD/VCR unit. Use the instructions in your Dish Network manual, mine is on page 61, "Setting up using device code tables". Refer to the table of device codes in the back of the dish manual, pg 119, to look up your manufacturer. I used the DVD codes for LG as LG wasn't listed on DVD/VCR combo codes. Try each one until one works. I have the LG RC797T and the third code worked 824. Good luck!

Recording dvd from vhs


you may not need a remote to dub a vhs tape to dvd.
look on the front of the recorder. see if there is a arrow showing dubbing vhs to dvd/ dvd to vhs. since you do not have the manual, you'll probably have to play around with it a while to figure it out. you will also need to know which format the dvd will record on. [dvd-r,dvd-rw,dvd+r,dvd+rw or ram] you can look up your recorder brand & model # online, then search for a manual you can download.
good luck.
