Please check the read surface of the disc you have already played on this player. Are there circular line on the surface. Best is to remove the top cover and observe if any foreign objects like sticker or paper is lodged in the loading tray. Also play with the sound off and see where the sound is coming from.

This device can tune in the digital channels, just that it can't decode them because it doesn't have an ATSC decoder in it.
Sorry, there is no way you can change that - you can't modify the mainboard to install one. All you can do is to buy an external convertor box and attach it to the AV inputs of the LG and set it to record from there. Something like

how long have you been using this player? Does the DVD recording play before now? And does it format disk?
If the answer is yes, then I don't think it is a driver(s) problem.

I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Good luck.

Your DVD drive is having a problem. When this recorder starts, it checks the DVD drive for correctness. If incase your DVD drive is has problem in the ejecting mechanism then this will prevent your HDD from working correctly. Take the player to service center and fix the drive

First test to see if this is happening with a particular DVD. Also go to sound settings and tes with different settings (test 5+1 if you have this configuration, and thest two speakers stereo in any case).

If problem occurrs with any DVD played, check the Center Speaker audio connection and working status. With surround settings the voice is often sent mostly to the center speaker. If speaker is malfunctioning you may get no or low voice audio signal.

Could be a timing issue with the tray mechanism - possible that somebody has given the tray "a shove" to make it close instead of using the open/close button and has put the timing out.or a worn tray loading belt
