Your DVD loader (DVD player) has some kind of malfunction. (dirty lens, bad build, etc...)
Just stick a new PC IDE DVD player in it and it will start working. I had the same problem.
I used a lite on made in 2004 and the RH1888 works prefect, but does not look perfect. The drive is won't work in conjunction with a it's original face panel.
I blue tacked the display on the top of the chassis, and got the big ol' lite-on drive sticking out front, but it works perfectly.
Good Luck!

Problems starting up my LG RH188H


I had the same problem. After googling I found that the HDD might be faulty so I unplugged the device, brought it upstairs to unscrew it (to change the HDD for an empty new one). One last check before I really unscrewed the cover - and the recorder started again! After 5 minutes the 'please wait' returned. So, did the same thing again, tried a few times, and the recorder started. Then, I imediately reformatted the HDD, and the problem is now gone.

LG DR-4810 DVD Displays " PLEASE WAIT"


to open the tray during "please wait", remove casing then loosen front panel (clips either side and underneath). Power up to get "please wait", then press small microswitch in bottom right corner of the DVD player unit. Have you tried resetting the unit (turning on and holding the power button for at least 5-10 seconds)? Have you tried unplugging the unit for a longer period of time (24 hours)? get your firmware upgrade through here(sorry its in german, you might be able to get an english of it through the LG site) - http://www.lgupdate.de.ms/ two cd's- bootloader.iso , update.iso Good luck
