enter "setup" from the remote
Scroll down to the lock symbol

Our DVD will not read discs. Some that we bought in asia will work but none rented here in the USA. Is there a switch we are missing?


I'm assuming you bought the DVD recorder in Asia as well. US DVDs are region 1 and won't play on a player/recorder from another region without alteration. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvd_regions for a description of DVD regions). There's nothing as simple as a switch unfortunately.

You may be able to find a way of altering your recorder to play all regions (region-free) but you need to be careful when doing this. Here is one person's story of this going wrong with the same model JVC.

A safer alternative may be to buy another recorder in the USA.

How do I unlock my LG RC388 to play other region disks


YES, it can be changed to view all regions. I've just done my new RC388 (bought it 4 hours ago) and it works.

To start the hack:
Click the home button on the remote, go to the Setup page, highlight the 16X9 TV aspect ratio and enter in this coded sequence: 1 3 9 7 1 3 9

A new factory menu now comes up on the screen.

To change the values of these options hit the enter button and scroll with arrow keys until you get to the option you want to change. For the region code hack replace the value of "option 5" with the value of: ff

Press enter.

(Changing this value will set unit to region code 0 which should allow any region to be played on the player.)

Now, hit the "return" button to save and exit.

Switch off the machine - switch on - all is well now.

Good Luck,
Will

I have an LG DVD Recorder Model DR 389. It first stopped recording (was getting message "regional code incorrect" & was playing DVDs. Now when a recorded or pre-recorded DVD is put in - it just keeps saying "Reading" .... and doesn't play.

Could it be the lens ?

I can play everything now, Aussie and US DVDs. Thanks LJ66.
