Question about LG DVB418 DVD Player

1 Answer

DVD disc tray keeps popping out

I am experiencing problems with my LG DVD Recorder (model DR386D). The recorder works most times, however is unreliable. The tray holding the disc sometimes pops out before a recording starts, therefore the set program is not recorded. Also, quite often the disc tray will keep opening and it takes many attempts to close it before it accepts reading the disc. I alternate using 10 different discs, and sometimes it accepts them and sometimes not. The discs I use are Memorex DVD+RW Also, I note that when the power supply is interrupted (which fortunately does not happen often), the recorder has to be reset and I have to go through the initialization process each time. Is there something wrong with the recorder or have I just bought a crappy machine? I'm hoping you can help.

I had mine for 2 years and within the first 12 months the tray would not always pop out when I wanted it to. Then finally the machine would not recognise the disc type. Its in getting fixed but although the dvd drive and associated pcb have been replaced the guy says it still can't recognise the dvd disc type. Still trying to work it out.

DVD RECORDER MODEL R175, I CAN PLAY MUSIC CD'S BUT WHEN I PUT A MOVIE DVD INTO, IT DISPLAY "NO DISC" AND SOMETIMES A BLACK SCREEN ON TV.


It is quite a common problem. What I do in my shop is to open the unit, and replace the DVD writer (is the same as a standard PC one) with another IDE DVD writer. (any model will work, but I try keep LG with LG etc)
Once you replaced the drive all should be back to normal. (I also use LG dvd writers on Daewoo recorders)
Hope this helps.

LG RH1757 (80 GB) DVD Recorder / HDD Recorder Drawer keeps opening Drawer keeps opening and closing and won't read discs! Rassie from Cape Town South Africa


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

LG RH278 HDD/DVD Recorder


I have an LG RH278 HDD/DVD Recorder, which was suffering from the problem that it could not play any bought DVD movies, which were previously working fine in that same player. It would however play svcd and DVD+R/-R movie discs.

The solution was to replace the laser tray. I found a new LG DVD BD lens LPC-815 laser tray here: http://www.laser-xh.com/en/?act=showproduct&proid=1147
I bought two for $5.50 each. Shipping was $32 (DHL), all together $45.10 (PayPal fees included). Delivery was fast and accurate within 3 working days (China - Sweden).
