I had the same problem. It was fixed under warranty. It was some sort of alignment problem. It would not play SOME commercially produced DVD's either.

DVD RECORDER MODEL R175, I CAN PLAY MUSIC CD'S BUT WHEN I PUT A MOVIE DVD INTO, IT DISPLAY "NO DISC" AND SOMETIMES A BLACK SCREEN ON TV.


It is quite a common problem. What I do in my shop is to open the unit, and replace the DVD writer (is the same as a standard PC one) with another IDE DVD writer. (any model will work, but I try keep LG with LG etc)
Once you replaced the drive all should be back to normal. (I also use LG dvd writers on Daewoo recorders)
Hope this helps.

Having trouble recording TV broadcast to DVD?


My LG DVD recorder was unreliable when recording TV broadcasts to "standard" DVD disks. Frequently it would begin recording a show and then stop with a copyright error message during some commercial. I rarely got a complete show. Very frustrating!

Solution: Buy some DVD-RAM disks and this machine will become totally reliable. They are hard to find and a little more expensive than +RW or -RW. Because of the copyright programming on this machine only DVD-RAM disks will work in VR (Video Recorder) mode.

Hey guys having a problem with my DR165 DVD Recorder. Mainly with DVD playing and DVD recording (so the main function I was interested in when purchasing it). We put in DVD's to play (Newly bought ones)...


if your dvd contains video files and songs and photo files, it will let you to access them all in individual category. you can select them one by one , by pressing title button in the remote. the frequent problem being faced by this recorder is that taking too much time to recognize the tipe of file, it's very big bug. you may change the lens to recover this error.

My DVD player LG DR165 DVD Recorder is giving me an error.


PROGRESIVE SCAN will only work with an HD TV and it does not work via the scart lead. Select off for it if you have an old TV. If you can't get it to stop coming on by doing what it says to do, then you have an electrical fault on the LG.
PROGRESIVE SCAN itself is a method of getting high quality images on HD TV's via the special sockets at the back of the DVD.

After recording a one hour episode, won't recognize the dvd.


Try inserting your DVD media into the PC and doing a 'quick format'. The LG is not seeing what it considers to be media that it can use. It is not seeing that you have inserted recordable media. Sometimes you can reformat the DVD or do a quick media erase, and the LG can then put on its blank "squares" that is uses for its menu selection. I think that it what it does when it 'initializes' a new media.

Sounds like the laser head carriage slides or screw drive need oil or the screw drive may have dirt in it that will cause uneven movement or possible jamming of the carriage on the slide.

The carriage and drive screw need to move smoothly. The slides can easly be oiled. The screw however can be difficult to clean. Using paper can make it worse due to the paper fibre getting into the screw as well. You could try a lint free material to clean the screw and then oil it, preferably with a non drying oil.
