You need to replace faulty cheap capacitors on the power supply board (one or two will be bulging on the top, with or without a brown exudate; see picture). This costs only a couple of dollars, or you can replace the power supply board for about $50.

    Where can you buy the power supply boards, don't think I'd be too good at soldering. Cheers

    Further experience revealed that this unit from LG has a design fault: there is not sufficient cooling for the power supply board. The heat cooks any brand/quality of electrolytic capacitors (the ones with the bulging tops in the previous picture). I constructed an aeration 'hat' of aluminum sheet above the damaged capacitors and have had no more problems. Below the hat is a hole in the original case to let the hot air out. The hat is 80 x 80 mm.

    One source of the power supply boards is:http://spares.bigwarehouse.com.au/produc... (I'm sure there would be suppliers in other countries). No soldering or special tools are required.

Can't play USB MP4 on LG RH397D


The LG RH397D only supports MP3/WMA/JPEG/DivX image and audio files from a USB drive. There is no firmware update that changes the supported file types. You will need to convert the MP4 to a supported format. The manual for the RH397D is available from LG: http://www.lg.com/au/support-product/lg-RH397D# /

I wish that I had better news for you.

Our LG RH397d/rh399d DVD / Hard drive recoreder will only turn on and display the Hallo message, and you can hear a clicking sound from in side. I have remove the power cord no change .


Your DVD drive is having a problem. When this recorder starts, it checks the DVD drive for correctness. If incase your DVD drive is has problem in the ejecting mechanism then this will prevent your HDD from working correctly. Take the player to service center and fix the drive

Cannot playback dvd-r on lg rh397d after recording from hdd. message is 'cannot playback due to navigation error' please help


When you burn a DVD, it is ONLY playable in the RH397D.
Buggy menus - and no way to flash the firmware.
Terribly designed remote.
HDD never seems to spin down, no matter how long it sits.
Doesn't play XVid.

I was a bit disappointed with this product. It does do, what is listed on the box, and one can't be too disappointed with that.
