    I have an LG RH188H. It doesn't boot up, it displays "Please wait" for hours. It happened already a few times before, but after a while it succeded to boot again. Now I waited for hours, but it didn't help. I have a CD also in the equipment, but I can not open the disk slot. I tried to disconnect it from the electricity, but it did not help either.

    I have mode RH277H and it is also showing the same problem. It is interesting this is all happening to us within a month. When did you buy your recorder? I bought mine in January 2008.

Magnavox MDR537H/F7 -- DEAD no power


There is usually an internal fuse in all audio/video equipment and it will normally be a 20mm glass one positioned near the power supply or somewher close on the circuit board. There may be more than one so have a good check around. Be sure to replace with the same type and rating, no sticking kitchen foil across it to short it out, this illegal and DANGEROUS.

No turn on but a message on the display. The message is PLEASE WAIT


Hello,

This message is displayed when the device is checking for its hard drive and DVD drive to signal back that they are operational. You can consider this a bit like the BIOS of a computer as it is waiting for its devices to come back with a "READY" signal. If "PLEASE WAIT" is scrolling across your screen for a really long time it could mean that the two devices with moving parts (HDD / DVD) may be having an issue coming up. UNPLUG unit from wall. Wait for some time (5 min) and then plug it back in. If your device is still not working then you have either a bum HDD or a bum DVD. Considering which one is working all the time (HDD) you probably have a dead hard drive, but my own unit's DVD drive went nuts, so that is also a potential source of the problem.

Either way, your local computer repair store can have a look at this issue, considering what the unit is is basically a single purpose PC

Problems starting up my LG RH188H


I had the same problem. After googling I found that the HDD might be faulty so I unplugged the device, brought it upstairs to unscrew it (to change the HDD for an empty new one). One last check before I really unscrewed the cover - and the recorder started again! After 5 minutes the 'please wait' returned. So, did the same thing again, tried a few times, and the recorder started. Then, I imediately reformatted the HDD, and the problem is now gone.
