I have a LG recorder model RC797T

The DVD drawer does not stay closed. How do I fix this
Asked by: rufo
I am sorry that you are having an issue with the RC797T. If the DVD drawer does not stay closed, you can try resetting the recorder. To reset the recorder, press and hold the POWER button for more than five seconds. This will force the recorder to power off and press the POWER button again to turn the recorder back on. If the reset does not fix the issue, the unit may need to have service on it. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp

Picture Does Not Show Color After Setup

I have set up the DVD/VHS Recorder to my HD TV, it is showing in black and white only without giving any sort of explanation how to fix in the manual... How can this be resolved?
Asked by: RyanTampa
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this dual recorder. Frequently, such a symptom will occur when the GREEN Component cable is connected to a YELLOW Composite connection or vice versa. Only part of the video signal is being processed. Check the wiring between the device and the TV. If you have additional questions, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Unknown disk message on other players for recorded dvd

I have recorded some home videos from vhs to dvd on the RC797T machine. DVDs play on the LG player but other players and my computers will not recognize the DVDs. Other brand DVD players give message "unknown disc" PCs don't see any files on the disc. Is there some way to get the DVDs to work on my PC or other DVD player?
Asked by: Katvtu
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this Dual Recorder device. The description you have provided suggests that the discs you have produced have not yet been finalized. Un-finalized discs will play properly on the recorder that created them, but not on others. The finalization process provides the disc with the formatting data to allow the unit to be read by other standard players.

All codes to be used will be located in the setup instructions for the Universal Remote Control. If you have experienced trouble in locating codes for LG, you may also try using Zenith or Goldstar codes, as some of these coincide with LG frequencies.

DVD

Why does my lg dvd recorder model rc797t say no signal when I put a DVD in, then I get a message , UNKNOWN DISK. All my DVDS are legitimate purchases. It plays the VHS without a problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Morrie
Asked by: Morrie
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this player. If the DVDs all show an UNKNOWN DISC error, then the player is having difficulty reading them. Sometimes, this can be corrected by using a can of compressed air, or possibly running a disc lens cleaner through the player. If this does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to make proper service arrangements.
