SOURCE: DVD player cant read DVD media

.Vob files contain audio, video and subtitles all together.However, most MPEG-2-capable DVD players don't support subtitle tracks. I guess your DVD player is in the mentioned majority. That's why you can only play them in your computer drive.

SOURCE: No disc

This is a power supply problem.Not enough or too much B+. I found the problem but the part is hard to find, no subsutation for part because I deal with famous ECG transistor subsutation manual. The original is a japanise company that went out of business Even if I could help u with the part, u would have to get a tech to do the repair.

SOURCE: my DVD recorder won't play my CDs

Recently purchased a unit... You can imagine the joy when I found in Manual: Audio discs can only play if in .mpg or .wma formats! Yes, all the bells and whistles except the most basic of functions such as all common audio formats. Other portable $99 dvd player works with them.

SOURCE: my dvd player, lg rc7oon, doesnt recognize any dvd

Hi,

There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)

2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)

3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.

You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.

Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.

Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.

I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG IDE DVD roms and IDE DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.

Let me know how it goes.

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.

DVD wont recognise disc


If your DVD drive don't show up in device manager and if there's no yellow exclamation mark in device manager, try to check IDE or SATA cable connection from your DVD drive to the motherboard. Also check the cable itself (are the wires inside broken?)

Cd/dvd burner will only recognise blank cd discs not blank dvd discs


Find some "older" blank DVD-R, or DVD+R, or DVD-RW disks, and insert them.

If they are recognized, then access LG's web-site,
and look for a downloadable "firmware update" for your model.

The newer firmware adds support for "newer" DVD media.

If all else fails, replace the CD/DVD device.
