LG DVD/VCR Recorder model RC288

I have an LG DVD/VCR Recorder (RC288) and I can't get the DVD to play any disc. I suspect it may have something to do with the zone. Can you help with the multizone programming using the remote control

SOURCE: dvd/vcr recorder stops recording

I finally got word back from a pal at LG regarding this issue as where I work we are getting these and as of Friday had about 18 to 20 units with this issue.


LG told us that this has to do with the encoding with the commercials (a one time record issue) on the one time record disks (DVD-R and DVD+R) now their "TEMP" fix for this is to used DVD-RAM or DVD-RW disks (these are not regular -RW they have a encoding CPMsomething I don't remember right now) but they will update us when they have a permanent solution. I will get the type of disk for the -RW on monday and post it here for everyone.

SOURCE: dvd/vcr recorder stops recording

DVD-RAM itself, and DVD-R formatted in "VR" mode are SUPPOSED to allow for recording "ONE TIME" per DRMA. The broadcasters are probably sending the wrong copy protection signal if the -RAM & -R/VRmode are stopping.
At least, that is my understanding.

SOURCE: Need code for Viore TV to program LG RC897T DVD/VHS Recorder

If your oneforall remote didn't come with the page that gives you the set codes, you can try 991 as the code. So in this order ;
Press tv, wait fir it to blink
press 9 9 1, then power
(it should blink again)
press tv again - it should set

***IF THIS DIDN'T WORK***
SLOWLY press power, then tv, wait,
then power, then tv, wait,
After several times it should set.
(Each time you do this, it tries yet another code to set)

SOURCE: LG HT903WA Multizone

I did this on my LG HT903WA, and it worked like a charm:

1) Power on player [with no disc in tray]
2) Using your remote control, press PAUSE
3) Key in 314159
4) Pre-set region code will be displayed
5) For multi-region, select 0
6) This will change to 00
6) Press PAUSE
7) Power off player at the electricity point
8) Wait a minute or two, then turn everything back on.

Good luck.

Returns error message :Unknown Disc. Please Check Disc Again" The DVD disc plays on other DVD players with no problem.


Problem may be reset needed, or lens need cleaning, or dvd recoreder worn out. Reset is pull the plug from the wall for 5 minutes. Turn it back on after reset to load firmware again, may work after that.. TDK makes lens cleaner. LG uses fan so, dirt can get into dvd recorder lens. If the tray moves out wiggly, laser assembly may move wiggly too. Replace dvd recorder which is a dvd+-rw regular ide unit from computers.

My 2 1/2 year old LG dvd/vcr recorder will play some dvds but will not play others. It says unknown disc. I was told to try a lens cleaner; I bought one and the lens cleaner says unknown disc as well. ...


Hi,

Your DVD /VCR says unknown disc because the
dvd which you have inserted is not of the supported format by player.

If you insert unsupported formats only it will say as unknown disc.This is not related with disc cleaners.

Please insert the supported formats and it will play the disc.

Thanx

Avi format files reading problem


I think its due to lack of supporting files. Normally there will be some files in the DVD other than the .Avi files. Try making a new DVD with a well known DVD making software like Nero or video editing softwares like Ulead,Adobe Premier etc.
