Question about LG DR787T DVD Recorder
I have this same junk DVD recorder(LG model dr787T). At the time, it was the most expensive one in the store, my wife got it for my birthday. It always had reading problems with DVDs, most of the time it would say "NO DISC" even good brand new movies. This thing is a worthless piece of junk and LG should take them back and replace them. I had contacted LG about a year ago about it, they just told me how to reset it. It doesn't help. I haven't touched the thing in months now, but just tried to burn something tonight and now I've wasted an hour trying to get it to work, that's why I'm online, checking to see if I can find any secrete to make this thing work right.

You can possibly use a PC with a DVD recorder to do a 'quick format' of the media and make it useable again. I think the LG does not have a very strong laser, or it is set at low power, and does not record a very strong 'phase change' in the media. Sometimes a format, even a 'full format', will make the media usable.

I recently had the exact same problem. I called LG. They had me try 2 things. The first was to unplug the player and then hold down the power button for 20 seconds. This supposedly resets the machine. For me it did not work, for you it may. The second thing they told me was to get a laser cleaning disk. Also didn't work but it was like 5 bucks and good to have anyway so you might as well try that as well. Though I was later told by a second help person at LG the laser does not need to be cleaned until after 1000 hours of use. After there two attempts it was decided that it needed to be serviced. Luckily I was within the 90 day warranty so they sent me the DHL stickers to send it back and get fixed for free. I am sending it off today. Once it gets in the mail fixing it is their problem. If you are past the 90 days but under a year it is 65 bucks to have them service it. I am hoping they consider fixing it a total loss and they just send me out the newer and hopefully bug free model. Best of luck though!
