I have a Logic LDVR1608 DVD Recorder. It has gone into some sort of standby mode with a blue light but no clock display. I can't access any of the menu's on the dvd remote or through the dvd set itself. It's like it is frozen.I cannot access any of the digital channels through it either. Can anyone help me please? How do I reset this dvd player? Many thanks.

Dvd recorder in standy wont work - blue standby light showing!

The main power supply board has the fault. It might be replaced. It is best to replace as card basis, rather than making 'surgery' to it.

Dvd recorder

The following should give you access to a service menu containing controls for macro-vision and region coding. You can change the regional settings from there.

1. Set your player to Standby
2. Press Title, Clear and Power

Hi. Please help, I have a Panasonic DMR-HS2. The unit doesn't work, it goes back to its standby mode (clock on screen),and the disk tray wont open. The unit wont play and always goes back to its standby...

Sounds like a typical communication error between power supply and main microprocessor, resulting in the unit continuously reverting to standby with no other functions accessible. In this case, the power supply has several faulty/leaky components (no shorts or there would be no clock display at all). Always a good idea to target the PSU in these units first, to eliminate any suspects before diving into the microprocessor (which, I might add, is a high-density surface-mounted IC with pins on all 4 sides and it is glued as well as soldered to the main board).

In the PSU, it is possible many electrolytic capacitors have gone funny, bulged, or leaked. Check and replace ALL caps as required; not just a couple, and check the IC regulator (IC1 is usually a problematic device in many DVD recorders). This IC is usually prefixed with STRxxxx (where x represents its type number) and is a 5-pin standard device. This is obtainable as a part. The cost will depend where you get it from.

If you are not tech. savvy, I suggest you submit the unit to an authorised service centre, for a quote, and a second opinion (on the likely causes and/or how many components are involved in the fault as well as economics of the overall repair), then make a decision afterwards, whether it's worth fixing or not. Up to you, but be warned, it could be an expensive exercise either way.

It does not turn on

Does the unit show a clock display - or a standby light on the front? if not, then the PSU is likely to be the cause, with several faulty components, including electrolytic capacitors. If there is a standby LED, but it won't go further, the unit is in protection mode; again, from the (suspected) power supply.

You can opt to visually inspect the condition of the PSU (assuming the unit is out of warranty, and if so, have a look at the electrolytics - many may have bulged/leaked), or, if it still has a warranty, submit to a service centre for a quote on likely repair/parts costs, although I don't think it would be economical.

It is up to you as to how much further you wish to go with this - but keep in mind the possible expense involved along with availability of parts/boards. These days manufacturers lean toward board replacement rather than individual parts replacement/repair.

Try changing the "command mode" switch on bottom right corner of remote. Setting 3 is the default code. This setting must match the setting in the system setup menu.

LG DVD Recorder- Clock settings Model RH277H

The clock settings will only be retained if you power down the unit via the On/Off button on the remote or on the unit i.e. put the unit into standby mode. If you switch off mains power the clock settings are lost as there is no backup battery in the unit. Power consumption on standby is negligible.
