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.

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.

Simple test: use a different system of connecting the player to the tv. If you have used the HDMI use the analogue ones (Composite video-yellow and audio -red and white) and the other way around. If your tv doesn't have HDMI then switch between the analogue outputs - Composite and S-video. Of course use another cables plugged in another sockets in the tv.
If it's the same then the defect is in the unit - the audio converter section from the main processor has failed. The only way of fixing that is by replacing the mainboard, which means that the unit is effectively dead, time for a new one.

The only thing you can do is try a DVD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if that fails the laser pickup assembly will need to be replaced, but this would be to expensive and far cheaper to replace the player.
