Can I get Parts for LG RC185

I agree with Robert - best option is to get the loader unit from LG Spares directly, then swop it yourself. If you are familiar with swopping HDD's/DVD units in PC's then it's easy to swop the loader unit ;-)

How can I transfer my vhs tapes to dvd from the LG RC185?

I think you use the "dubbing" button. I would strongly suggest reading the user manual for the specific step-by-step procedure as this is an integrated unit (see page 39 of the below link "Copying from VCR to DVD") - unfortunately LG's own site chooses no to use PDF and you need to install a plugin, so I suggest you download a PDF copy from here:

Hi There, I want to know how to copy from VHS to DVD on the LG RC185 - I have the equipment but not the user manual! Also could you please instruct me on how to make sure the DVD will play in all DVD...

I am glad you asked. The free user manual for this model is available as a pdf document and can be downloaded from the following site:

(no email, security verification or registration required, just go there and click 'get this manual')

I hope this helps you or at least offers some guidance for you in VHS to DVD recording with your combo unit.

LG RH289H DVD Recorder Unknown Disc. Please check disc again.

I have had the same problem a few times. All I do is eject and re-insert the disk until it recognises it, this seemed to work for me
