Asked by: Zapot
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this DVD Recorder. Check the discs being used. When this player was developed, only certain brands, disc types and speeds were compatible. The owner’s manual will show what types of discs should be used. It is also suggested to run a lens cleaner through the player. If this does not resolve the matter, then the laser may be failing. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to obtain additional assistance in this matter.

My recorder will not keep my recorded shows on to DVD,..R plus or RW,... And I'd love to talk to someone about it,... But yet this is all I can do. Like dealing with real people.

Asked by: Zapot
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this DVD Recorder. Once a video has been recorded to a disc, be certain that the disc has been finalized. This should make the recording permanent on the disc, to the point it can be viewed on other DVD players. For additional assistance in this matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Where can I purchase the LG DR787T dvd recorder? Can not seem to find it anywhere locally.

Asked by: WCNashville
This DVD-R was manufactured in 2007. I doubt very much that you will find a new one.

Why are we no longer hearing sound when we play DVDs?

This is a problem that has developed suddenly. We now hear no sound when we play DVDs, no matter how much we turn up the volume. When we use the TV/DVD button on the DVD player remote to toggle back and forth between TV input and DVD input, the sound switches on and off. I've made sure all the cables behind the unit are still connected.

What does code L15t

LG DVD Recorder Model DR787T - what does L15t mean
Asked by: jomillar
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this player. The service materials for this player do not appear to include a code “L15t”. This could, however, be a display of LIST. It is suggested to press the RETURN button to see if this message can be cleared from the display.
