    Same problem - plays cds but won't accept even pre-recorded dvds

    I have the same problem. I think LG's only have a 13 month life span, just so the warranty runs out.

    I have the same problem, it wont read any disk and hangs up for a long time. I am seriously dissappointed with this product and suggest that nobody purchase an LG, I have had many problems with their products. Maybe if someone can suggest some sort of solution, I have tried putting the disk back in, but still no luck.

    I have the same problem with the RH278 recorder. Very disappointed and frankly, quite irritated, as I had it fixed once before for exactly the same thing! Now it just sits there, dead to the world...and to me. I despise it. Please help! It cannot be swopped for a new one, store policy.

I have had the same problem a few times. All I do is eject and re-insert the disk until it recognises it, this seemed to work for me

Returns error message :Unknown Disc. Please Check Disc Again" The DVD disc plays on other DVD players with no problem.


Problem may be reset needed, or lens need cleaning, or dvd recoreder worn out. Reset is pull the plug from the wall for 5 minutes. Turn it back on after reset to load firmware again, may work after that.. TDK makes lens cleaner. LG uses fan so, dirt can get into dvd recorder lens. If the tray moves out wiggly, laser assembly may move wiggly too. Replace dvd recorder which is a dvd+-rw regular ide unit from computers.

MODEL LG RC299 NOT READING DVD VIDEO'S. ERROR COMES UP "UNKNOWN DISC.PLEASE CHECK DISC". PLAY'S OK PREVIOUSLY RECORDERED DISC'S,RECORDERED ON THIS UNIT.


I also have this annoying problem - but I bought mine new on ebay and have zero after-sales support. I have tried all the hacks I cna find over the last 12 months and when I am finished, the messages all say 'congratulations, you're now region free'. But even the local DVDs don't work. Disc ejects itself with irritating message 'unknown disc'. Does anyone have this problem who has a SALES RECEIPT from an authorised LG dealer? If so, can you jump up and down with LG until they offer a solution? Thanks!

DVD er Help


Broadcasting
Video : PAL I, B/G, I/ISECAM D/K, K1

That information is posted on LG Australia's
website that you hyperlinked to. It won't play
NTSC video because the region coding is
different - on PAL video is supported.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :P

Hope this helps,
