All tape recorders made since the late-1990s are equipped with protection interlocks to prevent you from copying copyright material to tape. They work in different ways but, generally, they will thwart any attempt to copy a DVD to tape.
Depends on what you try to input on the AUX. If you try to connect an old record player it won't work. The AUX needs an input voltage of at least 0,18 V (180 mV) and can handle voltages up to 10 V. an old record player only gives a few mili volts, so it won't work.
If you have an old Tape deck, that you can use to test the AUX input.
I don't think inside your receiver is anything defect. like the switch, but in rare occasions that could be the problem too.
It's very possible from your description that the recording function was defective from the beginning and never worked, but here's what to try now to find out if it is just a technical issue in the way you have been doing it, or if the machine is defective. Use a DVD+R disc (not -R or -RW). Set to SP mode (it may be there already by default). The Initialize menu should appear; select OK and press Enter and it should initialize to Video mode. Don't use any other initialization options. Go ahead and record something. After you make your recording, Finalize the disc (this function is under the Disc Settings menu). Then see if it will play back on this machine or on another DVD player; a properly initialized and finalized DVD+R disc should work on any standard DVD player. If it doesn't and still says Unrecognizable disc or something like that then your unit's recording function is bad and probably has been from day 1 but unfortunately it will be too late to make a warranty claim with LG.
Insert an empty DVD + R. The system asks whether to format - Format. Select a recording on the HDD to copy to DVD. Enter Select dubbing with arrows select type of recording to make (XP, SP, EP etc) The system show the duration you can copy to you DVD. If small enough the FAST option also appears. If big copies while playing the orriginal (I.e. playback speed)
Make sure the player is grounded to the amp chassis. Use the ground side of the AM antenna. Use the phono input of the amp, not a tape, CD, or DVD. The signal from a record player is much lower, hence, if you use the phono input for a tape player it is noisy and loud. Clean the needle too. I hope this solves the issue.
I had a similar problem with an Insignia converter box. This is confusing but . . . I was told by an Insignia person that you can only program the channel that you have on and cannot record a different channel. My output channel is 3. My roof antenna is attached to my converter box "From Antenna" jack. Attach the converter's "To TV (RF)" jack to your VCR's "Antenna Input" jack. Attach "Antenna Output" jack to TV "Antenna Input". You will see your programs on your output channel, but if your VCR is like mine, your VCR may not recognize anything but your output channel, no matter which station is actually showing on the TV. If I want to record a show on channel 7 while I'm gone, I have to make sure the converter station is on 7 and that I choose channel 3 as my channel to record. You cannot program shows to be taped on different stations unless you physically change it on the converter box. I put my VCR on "Record" and flipped the stations from one to the next from my converter remote control and I taped exactly what was on the screen from one station to the next. You cannot tape one thing and watch another. Clear as mud??? Hopefully, not.
Sorry, but many of the older ones are not made to play the recordable disc's. There is no workaround for it or any upgrade. When DVD players first came out, it was rare to get one that played recordables because the recordable disc's were not being sold, or they were still new to the market and not yet popular enough for the manufacturers to consider them an essential feature. In fact, there are still some DVD players being manufactured today that will not play them, about 5% to 10% of new ones today.
