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.

SOURCE: My DVD Recorder & VCR (DRC8320N) has Hello on display

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.

SOURCE: I have an lg RH397D dvd recorder - the lcd just

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.

My Samsung DVD/VHS recorder the DVD won't close after playing DVD


Never force it, just use the remote.
If it won't stay in, unplug the unit and wait a while.
I think we get viruses from the TV signal which might be temporary (hopefully).

How do I program a Philips Universal Remote to operate my LG LRA 516 DVD Recorder?


The only code I could find was 0392. Press and hold the setup button until the red indicator light stays on, then release the setup button. Press the desired button in your case it would be VCR/ DVD. The red indicator light should blink then stay lit. Enter the four digit code 0392. If it was a valid code the indicator light should go off. It should work if its a good code.

Won 't stay on


Contact Insignia if it is still under warranty and get it checked out. I had a problem with another version of insignia and it was not able to be repaired or replaced so they gave me a complete refund.

First, the two of you Don't have the same problem. Now then, the unit that won't play DVDs needs an alignment or replacement of the optical assembly. The VCR unit has a bind of some sort in the carriage load assembly...accordianman
