Either the glass laser lens eye is dirty and needs to be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab, or the circuit itself is faulty

Hi try cleaning the lens.
If the lens is dirty or opaque, the player may read only few media types, for example only recorded DVD-R .
You can first try cleaning the lens with a Cleaner Disk. If that does not work clean the lens with isopropyl alcohol and cotton stubs. Disconnect power and remove top cover to clean the lens directly. Be careful because if you put too much strength and displace the lens pickup you may make things worse.

If all that does not work, the lens pickup must be replaced.

Hi I have a rc199h dvd video recorder and i no it's discontinued but i can't find my manual. I just dubbed a vcr tape to a dvd but how do i convert it to see on my tv or computer?


To read the disc on other machines, you need to finalize the DVD in the machine that you wrote to the disc. Press Home on the remote, and go to the Disc Settings menu. Select the second line (Finalize) and press the right arrow. With Finalize selected press Enter. Then select OK and press Enter. (Please note that you need to leave space on the disc for the finalization information to be stored.) Wait for the finalization to be completed.

If you do not have the original remote, you will need one that matches the Home button feature. An exact replacement remote is available here: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=RC199H&uuid=12978352098280 .

The manual for the LG RC199H is available at retrevo: http://www.retrevo.com/support/LG-RC199H-DVD-Players-manual/id/366ag209/t/2/ . You will need to answer a question to prove that you are actually using the computer.

I hope this helps.

Does lg play .vob files (ripped) dvd's?


You need a complete DVD folder like VIDEO_TS, AUDIO_TS. However, it's a good idea to convert DVD to regular video and there are a few free rippers for choices like Handbrake, VLC, Leawo DVD Ripper, etc.
Step 1. Download and Install Handbrake
First, you need to download Handbrake and install it on your computer. Once downloaded, you'll be asked to install the program. Follow the directions on your screen and you'll be fine.

Step 2. Import DVD File
Open Handbrake and click on the "Source" button at the top left. Select DVD from the drop down list. Then browse for the location where your DVD is located. Select the DVD or the folder, and click "OK".

Step 3. Change the Destination Settings
Once you've chosen the source, the software will automatically ask you to select the destination. The way your picture and sound quality will turn out in the resulting file depends on the settings you choose in this step. We click "Browse" for our file Destination, choose a location for our new file, as well as give it a fitting name. We'll go ahead and save the file in the same location as our source and click "Save".

Step 4. Output settings
Go to the Output Settings and choose MP4 as the output format.

Step 5. Click Start
Once you've chosen the source and destination settings, you're pretty much set to go. Just click on the Start Encode button and the program will do the conversion for you.

Handbrake is easy to use, risk free, and we are able to achieve very desirable results, simply using the default settings.

Dubbing VHS to DVD


You have to go into the Home menu and select setup. At the bottom left there should be an icon that looks like a dvd disc. Select that and then go to finalize and select that to finalize the disc. After that is complete it should play on any dvd player. I had this problem and I got through to LG's customer service line and had them talk me through it. After I finalized the disc, it worked.

Recording to DVD recorder


I know you can copy to the VCR. but do not know if digital recording has any form of copyright protection. You can try to copy by connecting the outputs of the DVD TV to the inputs of the DVD player recorder.

LG RC199H (DVD Freezes)


I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems that your particular unit has a problem within the processing section not the optics. Bad or dirty optics could cause the video to freeze up, but not the entire unit. Don't waste your time on this one. The replacement parts cost will exceed a replacement unit. your problem is not unusual. I have seen it before. Usually it shows up during the warranty period so that it is repaired at no cost to the consumer. Once resolved, I have not seen the problem occur again.
