Sounds like a power supply problem. It could be due to bad capacitors - look for bulging or domed capacitors.

    I encountered the same problem with my LG RH1977. How can I reset the recorder?

  • Raj Patel Apr 30, 2011

    If your DVD/HDD recorder will not switch on properly then you will need to disconnect it from the mains power and take the cover off to look inside. If you are lucky, you will find one or more cylindrical capacitors wich have bulging (not flat) silver tops. These need to be replaced with equivalent capacitors and should only be carried out by someone with electronics & soldering experience. Occassionally, capacitors can be faulty without showing external signs. The only way to find these is to use a capacitance tester.

Last time one of my kids spilled something down the back and it gradually went out. 600.00 to have the part replaced.

I have an LG LCD TV (42LC2D) & a LG HDD/DVD Recorder (DBRH197). The HDD/DVD is connected to the TV via a HDMI cable. Generally, when I watch DVDs, I change the Input on the TV to HDMI, however since...

Hope that helps.........

ekimt,

Yes, it would not recognize any type of disc. The disc icon was always present on the display even though no disc was inserted. Also, mine went out while recording from HDD to DVD. Panasonic had mine repaired in two business days and it' s working great.
