Question about LG RH1999H DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

1 Answer

Won't read a DVD-video disc.

The player will not read a DVD-video disc that I rented from the movie store. The player will record from VHS to DVD and able to play it in the computer. I was able to play a DVD cleaner but now it will not even play that. Would it be worth the $69 fee to get it fixed?

    My recorder will play CDs but will not read the DVDs. I have bought both a CD and a DVD cleaner for the lens. It read them okay, but the problem persists.

    I also have the same problem. It will read some rented discs and not read others. It will also not read some new disks that I have purchased

    I also have the same problem. It will read some rented disks but not others, the same with new disks that I have purchased. The funny thing - this happened just after the miserable one year warranty expired.

    My Recorder has given me problems twice already. The first time it would keep saying there is no disk in the tray. I sent it in and it was repaired. About 6 months later, it is now starting its problems again. I have to insert and eject dvd's about 5 or more times before it reads them. Once it reads the disk, then its fine until I eject it. It is now out of warranty and I opened it the other day and tried to clean the laser with some cleaning fluid but it still does this. I am thinking its not the laser because why would it work perfectly after some time. If the laser is faulty or dirty, it should give bad playback with skipping etc..

    This player hasnt worked very well at all,it started to decline about 9 months after i purchased it.The player went from playing about 50% of the DVDs I hired to none at all now. I get a (No Video- Yes) message when I hit play but all the leads are plugged into their right sockets.

Yes, and that's actually a bargain...
If it's cleaning - they'll go in and clean the laser, play table assembly, check the alignment and adjust the amplitude. In addition, I would assume a full cleaning interior and exterior. For that same service here we charge $70.00 dollars plus tax and we're the least expensive shop in our area.

Green tint on TV screen when playing DVD's or Videos 2nd problem and can't record anything


1: Hi i would recommend trying the recorder on a different tv to check if the problem continues. If the green tint is gone then its the tvs inputs. If it is still green then its the player or the cord. Try a different cord if the green tint is still there then the player has a problem.

2: Now for the VHS to DVD. There are general a lock out encoded on the VHS if it is a store bought movie. This is to protect the content on the VHS from piracy and that would case the DVD to be blank. The VHS to DVD are made for converting your home videos like family vacations and stuff you record your self and not for commercial movies like the ones you bye at the store. If you want to convert old VHS movies to DVD you would have to get another VHS player and another device in between the VHS player and the VHS to DVD recorder.

DVD player will not read any discs.


> I tried recording a VHS to a DVD according to the instructions in the manual.
There can hardly be instructions in the manual to do this since that model is not a DV Recorder, but if it isn't reading any DVD then you have a warranty problem assuming your unit is still within the warranty period.
That unit is capable of recording DVD content to VHS tape but not the opposite.

Dmr-ES30V Dvd plays pre record movies fine but I


Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

RCA 8295n dvd-vcr combo starts recording from VHS tape to disk and then stops.


Is the VHS tape a store bought movie or show?

MacroVision and other copy protection systems are put into store bought tapes and discs of movies and shows, and are read by your recording equipment. Once it reads this, it stops recording.

Does the screen turn red before it stops? This is one of the indications that MacroVision is stopping you.

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9. I follow all directions in manual for dubbing VHS home movies to DVD but when I try to play the DVD back there's nothing on them.What am I doing wrong?


Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.

DVD recorded discs (from VHS) do not play on other dvd players


I called the manufacturer. They admitted to improper instructions. They provided me a fix to their copying protocol and it worked. Also, they game me instructions on how to fix already copied tapes. It works well and I would have to say I was impressed with their customer/technical service.
