    I think that the laser have a little bit more life the two months . How one can aligne properly. what is so funny is that there is a dvd that was recorded on this dvd recorder and after few trials it will read it. Again it would not read any other dvd regardless the make. I tried to contact LG customer care but They should call themselves customer don't care as none of them even had the courtesy to reply to my complaint. This product was made in Indonesia. on July 2007. I even tried to contact them but they have no ears to hear from me. I am giving up till I will go to Azerbaijan and shoved it to the man who sod it to me

Optical unit has become dirty or out of alignment. It may be even that the laser has expired...accordianman

    I'm sorry for your troubles, but please bear in mind that not all man-made products have the life expectancy that we all deisre. My diagnosis still stands, and I hope that your experience turns out for the best...accordianman

    I have indeed, performed laser alignments, but only after some training in that field. A single-trace 'scope is needed, with at least a 10 MHhz horizontal specification. These DVD machines have what is called a "grating lens" and must separate the primary beam into three coherent beams; one for reading the actual tracks, and the other two used for tracking error offset to tell the machine which way to move the beams and how far. There are numerous products on the market, some extremely inexpensive, that can detect whether a laser is even putting out a beam to begin with, or, you can use an ordinary video camera to "see" the beam by looking at the viewfinder of the camera. The rest of the alignment process varies slightly according to the MFGR, and should be performed as such...accordianman

Lg rct 689h stops dvd playback after few seconds and returns to main menu

Ensure the disc being used is not damaged or dirty. If it persists, then the reader and / or its tracking rails have become dirty. Initially, try a laser head cleaning disc.

DVD wont initialize, it will not see a disk

Look at your local mart for a laser lens cleaner disk. It has little brushes that will sweep dust off the laser lens, possibly helping it to better read the disks. Failing that, the unit is probably trash. You might be able to find a replacement drive mechanism for it, but it'd probably be more expensive than a new one.

LG V181 DVD player/vcr combo doesn´t read de DVD´s

You need to go inside and clean the lens yourself with Servisol video 40. You might need to wipe it with a cotton bud etc. Allow it to dry before checking. Repeat it several times if it doesn't clear up first time.
PS check the lens for damage with a magnifiying glass! First!!

Tv/digital converter box & vcr-dvd hook-up

I have a vhs and dvd player all in one
I have a converter box hooked up to my tv and vcr , dvd player combined
I can play my movies on the tv. ok.
you have to have your tv and vcr set on channel 3. if that is what your main tv is set up with. Or 4 if you have your tv set up with that.
Mine plays ok. My settings are for channel 3
My suggestion would be to check your hook ups. maybe they are not hooked up correctly
I had to go to and did searches to help with hook up.
I can also record station I am watching with vcr on vsh tapes. I do not have a dvd recorder.
I found out that you have to have 2 converter boxes hooked to one tv., in order to record on on station while watching another. I have not tried that, as I don't have 2 converter boxes for one tv. I found that by doing google search also. Good Luck

Are you playing the movie on the DVD or the VCR?
Why is the DVD plugged into the outputs instead of the VCD inputs?
