Hello,

Your player is actually LG RH278H correct, our selection system leaves a lot to be desired sometimes.

Anyays here's you region free hack. Copy and paste into a writer program and then print so you have it in front of you.

[this is from videohelp.com]
Press the Home button
Choose SETUP
Scroll down to the LOCK icon
Press ENTER (you won't see any response.)
Press the 0 key 7 times
A message will appear congratulating you on bbeing region free - press Enter.

You may also want to try this one, although it sounds weird to me in my experience.

Hold down CLEAR on remote and Prog Down on DVD simultaneously for about 6 seconds, then change the value of OP6 from af to 8f.


Regards,
Worldvet

Why ask me my DVD Playback prohibited by area limitations ??? Pls help me now I wane watch movie thanks


Most DVD players are region-locked, meaning they will only play disks encoded in the location they are from, or disks without region-specific encoding. For example, if I bought a DVD player in Europe and tried to play a disc from the United States, it would not play. Unfortunately, in order to get past the "area limitations" you will either have to buy a DVD encoded in the same format as your DVD player, or set the player to a different region code (which often will lock the player after a certain number of times).

LG RH278 DVD recorder has no power after power outage


The power supply regulator board should be troubleshooted. It will be best to replace this board as card basis, rather than making surgery to it. You can bought this board fro the authorised service center for LG at your town.

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

LG RH278 HDD/DVD Recorder


I have an LG RH278 HDD/DVD Recorder, which was suffering from the problem that it could not play any bought DVD movies, which were previously working fine in that same player. It would however play svcd and DVD+R/-R movie discs.

The solution was to replace the laser tray. I found a new LG DVD BD lens LPC-815 laser tray here: http://www.laser-xh.com/en/?act=showproduct&proid=1147
I bought two for $5.50 each. Shipping was $32 (DHL), all together $45.10 (PayPal fees included). Delivery was fast and accurate within 3 working days (China - Sweden).
