SOURCE: dvd/vcr recorder stops recording
I finally got word back from a pal at LG regarding this issue as where I work we are getting these and as of Friday had about 18 to 20 units with this issue.
LG told us that this has to do with the encoding with the commercials (a one time record issue) on the one time record disks (DVD-R and DVD+R) now their "TEMP" fix for this is to used DVD-RAM or DVD-RW disks (these are not regular -RW they have a encoding CPMsomething I don't remember right now) but they will update us when they have a permanent solution. I will get the type of disk for the -RW on monday and post it here for everyone.

Even though the power light may be off the unit is still on. It will be warm on top. Unplug the unit for 30 minutes and plug it back in, that will usually reset it.

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.
