Here is how to make your lg RC389H DVD player region free, and allow it to play region 1 discs.
Press the HOME button on the remote, go to Setup and select Start. From the TV options go to TV Aspect and highlight the 16:9 Wide option (must be 16:9 0ption). Now enter 1397139 using the number keys to access the system configuration information.

To change the values of these options hit the ENTER button and then use the left/right arrow keys to select OPTION 5. Change it's current value to ff using the up/down keys. Now power off with the remote and then power back on. Your recorder should now be region free. To check go back into the system configuration information where Region Code should now be 0.

The short answer is, you can't. The long answer is that a very few units have secret settings menus that will allow you to do this. However, even with this ability the drive will only allow you to change your region 3 times before becoming permanently locked to the last selected region. If you have a PC, it is much easier to buy a drive and change its firmware to allow any disc to be played. Once you do this, you can take any disc you own and re-burn it on your PC as a region 1 disc which will play in your unit. I do this all the time because some movies I buy from the UK were not released in the USA.

Have copied video to dvd but cant play back on another player

be sure you have played the disc on more then one player. this problem is caused when the pick-up assembly is gone bad. this assembly is also responsible for writing on the discs. you need to replace the pick-up assembley.

LG RC389H. Can't record vhs to dvd

Put both your vhs and blank dvd into the player.
Go into VHS mode and press "Home" menu button.
Scroll across to "Easy Menu" and select "Dubbing".
Make sure you are at the place on your VHS where you want to record from and select the "Dubbing" button.
Press the Stop button to finish transfering.
When it has done recording file information, press eject once and select to finalize the disc.
And that's it!
