Question about LG RH177 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

First the recorder rejects many blank dvds. When it does start recording on DVD, most of the time it does no go till the end. On fast recording, it may go till 100% but then gets stuck at this point

The laser head is faulty: the sensor in so longer detecting the return laser light because there's dirt and dust on it or the lens. Dismantle the unit and access the laser head - use a can of compressed air and blow away all the dust from between the lens and the sensor then wipe the lens with a q-tip. If after 2 or 3 cleanings the situation doesn't improve then the dust was baked on the plastic lens and cannot be removed: if you can't find a replacement laser head then the recorder is dead, get a new one.

One thing you can do is open the disc tray and blow deep inside many times to clear off any dust on the laser lens. You can use a can of air duster as well to do this. Or you can remove the top cover and clean the laser lens with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab.
Dusty and dirty lenses do cause problems. If it is clean and does the same thing, then either you need a firmware udate as long as the laser is recognizing and reading the disc

Purchased a Technika Model 19-220. 8 months ago never used the DVD recorder because we never had freeserve. Now we are connected to Freeserve the DVD will play DVD's but no accept blanks for recording...


Thanks for posting to Fixya and it is my pleasure to guide you.

"Will not accept blanks for recording it says No Disc."

from Technika manual: Start Quote
VCR/DVD Recorder; I have connected the TV to my VCR or DVD Recorder via SCART but it is not recording. In addition to connecting via SCART, you should connect the aerial cable from the wall socket to your VCR/DVD Recorder and another aerial cable from the VCR/DVD Recorder to the TV." Also; "Check the DVD is a region 2 disc - to change the region of the DVD player, refer to section 'Changing Regions'.

Note: USB record function is only avilable in Digital/Freeview TV/Radio mode. Due to copyright laws and illegal copying/recording it is not possible to record to/from any other input/output source.

DVD MENU: To access this menu, press [MENU] button on the remote control. TV System - Choose from the following options. NTSC; Normally used for discs from North America, Japan etc.
Auto; For both NTSC and PAL. This TV/DVD player is pre-set to play Region 2 DVDs.
Tip: This television contains one TV tuner, therefore it can only record the channel you are watching or record one channel while the television is in standby mode.

Tip: This TV/DVD player is pre-set to play Region 2 DVDs.

You can not record to a DVD, according to their manual. That is why you get the no disc error. It does not have the play sector at the beginning of the DVD. You can record to USB Flash Drive however.

Quote:
USB RECORD - DIGITAL/FREEVIEW MODE
Built into this television is a USB record facility. This function is available in Digital/Freeview mode when used in conjunction with a compatible USB memory stick or USB Hard drive. The benefi ts of this are as follows:
• Pause live TV/Radio and then playback, fast forward and rewind (up to live TV)
• One button record, if you decide you want to record the current programme
• Easy programmable recording from the 7 day TV Guide
• Record TV/Radio and watch/listen back on your computer/laptop
Due to the nature of the product, it is necessary to use a high speed USB memory stick (as the TV reads from and writes to the memory stick at the same time, some memory sticks may not be suitable). You can purchase high speed memory sticks from some computer stores, alternatively, we have a selection of tested and compatible memory sticks available to purchase directly from the helpline/web site. These are available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. (Please check the web site/helpline for latest specifications and prices). End Quote

Good luck and please post back that you this has solved your problem and click thumbs up of your success or that I can be more helpful.

My Samsung DVD Recorder rejects my blank DVD disc after having used it 2 years without any problem. What is causing this?


Hi, I think I have the answer. Try putting in a different type of disc, start with going to a simpler format of disc-if yoou were using dvd r/w +- for example then go to plain dvd r. If you were using dvd r's-then try putting in a data disc ( cd-r ) and try recording a song. I you can record in a simpler format I'd have to say that your samsung's probably reached the end of it's life cycle and is just plain getting weak. I'm sorry I didn't have better news. You may try a " LENS CLEANING " dvd also-as there have been cases of actual dirt being a culprit. I hope this was helpful, please comment though, Thanks and good luck , Prodzilla

Won't Read blank disc!!


I my DVD-HR735 wont recognise any discs at times, and is getting worse. I've now discovered (out of frustration) that if I tip the front up to between 30-45 degrees, it will play all the discs it says were unreadable. I've started jamming three dvd boxes under the front of the machine when i want to play dvds.
