Question about LG DVD & Blu-Ray Players

6 Answers

I have an LG DVD HDD recorder( RH266 ) into which I have inserted a blank disc to record onto from the hard drive.The on-screen message 'preparing please wait' appears and remains for about two minutes followed by the 'LG' symbol and then it just keeps repeating this sequence over and over.It wil not eject the disc and turning the machine on and off does not help.I have tried the high tech. solution of hitting it with a hammer but that drew no response either!Any help would be greatly appreciated. JL.

    I don't know any way of getting the disc out except by removing the cover and I don't know if this is safe on account of the laser.Could you please advise.Thank you.

    No response to anything,just the on-screen message ''preparing please wait ''.Do you know if it safe to open it up,with the machine unplugged of course?Is it there any danger from the laser?

    After much unscrewing I finally got the disc out and the machine seems to be working now.I have'nt risked inserting another disc yet.Thanks for your help.

I was supposed to give out a hot switch but since you have the disc out, then your all set then.

Sir,

This is because of dust problem in Lens. U must buy a good lens cleaner and play it on dvd. If any dvd is struck and not eject the disc, if mean u could open the door and take it manually. U also manually open the door only to fix this problem.

Thanks
good luck

Hello leahyj,

Does your DVD power up?
Is the disk stuck or jamed on your DVD or is it just your DVD that wonteject the DVD?
Do you hear a motor or anysound as if the DVD was trying to eject the disk when you press eject?

    leahyj,


    im not sure if your DVD has this but almost all devices with CD reader has it.

    Check if your DVD has a small hole (about 2mm in diameter).
    It should be right beside the DVD tray or anywhere on the DVD player.

    Anyway, If you find thah hole get something pointy, such as a paperclip, and stick into the hole. That way you will manually open the CD tray.

    Good luck, and let me know if that didnt solve your problem.

    my previous post never posted, basically you need to upgrade your firmware and if that doesn't help, then have LG replace the device for you or fix it for free. Let me know of any other questions that you may have


    good luck

Try using the manual disc release to get the DVD out. I would try using a different brand of recordable DVD in the future.

LG HDD/DVD Recorder Model: RH265


What you need to do is to put in your dvd that you wish to copy onto and then press the DVD button on your remote control. (this is next to the HDD button which is under the POWER button) Then follow the on screen prompts and instructions in the owners manual. I had the same problem but found the solution by mistake!

Hope this helps,

Nicky

Recording problem with LG RH266 Recorder.


If the DVD is copy right protected then it won't record. By this I mean, you can't simply rent a DVD at Blockbuster and transfer it to the Hard Drive (use a computer to do this instead). Try using a DVD that is not protected, like a home video or a cd with MP3s

Recording problem with LG RH266 Recorder..


Just bought unit. Had same problem.Tried lots of different types of disks with no luck. Tried to play already written +R disk. Worked OK. Then took out and replaced with blank -R. Came up with new screen asking me if I wanted to initialize disk. Answered yes and it took about 20 seconds. Then tried to DUB from HDD to DVD again. This time it came up with the dubbing menu, I hadn't seen before, and worked.
Hardly ideal, but the trick was to get it to recognise it as a blank and initialize. Currently burning my first disk. Didnt realise about 'FAST' mode, so taking ages.

Lg rh266 recorder


When you put your disc in and its ready for copying over through Dubbing - when you see the quality ie xp - just press right or left til the FAST sign comes up. it maynot always come up if the recording time is any longer than an hour or less than 30 mins.

pg 47 of your manual
