SOURCE: cannot playback dvd-r on lg rh397d after recording

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.

SOURCE: Bought a LG Rh397D/RH399D HDD

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.

SOURCE: My LG RH397D HDD wont recognise dvds any more

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.

Can't play USB MP4 on LG RH397D


The LG RH397D only supports MP3/WMA/JPEG/DivX image and audio files from a USB drive. There is no firmware update that changes the supported file types. You will need to convert the MP4 to a supported format. The manual for the RH397D is available from LG: http://www.lg.com/au/support-product/lg-RH397D# /

I wish that I had better news for you.

I recently purchased an LG RH397D dvd recorder> Ihave now discovered taht it will not receive the new free view channels and I need a HD set top box. How to I connect the set top box to the dvd...


Hi, The set top box will more than likely have two coaxial connectors ( threaded/ribbed pieces of metal ) coming out of the back. also three R.C.A. connectors-these will be smooth and be colored yellow red and white. one of the coax connectors will say " IN FROM ANT> or CABLE IN) the other ( OUT TO T.V. ) hook up your dvd recorders " ANTENNA " input to the set top box's ANTENNA output. If your D.V.D. recorder doesn't have an antenna input then hook up the recorders audio/video input to the set top box's audio/video output. then you should be good to go. If you buy a H.D.T.V. tuner to receive FREE H.D. programming it may be possible to hook up to recorder with H.D.M.I. cables.( those connections resemble slots ) I hope this has been of some assistance, good luck, Prodzilla.

Our LG RH397d/rh399d DVD / Hard drive recoreder will only turn on and display the Hallo message, and you can hear a clicking sound from in side. I have remove the power cord no change .


Your DVD drive is having a problem. When this recorder starts, it checks the DVD drive for correctness. If incase your DVD drive is has problem in the ejecting mechanism then this will prevent your HDD from working correctly. Take the player to service center and fix the drive
