LG DVD recorder RC7723W wont watch DVDs



Hi, I am new here so unsure if I am posting in the right place… I have an LG RC7723W DVD recorder that worked great when I got it. I used the 0s code to multizone it and it all still worked great, but then certain movies stopped playing. The DVD comes back out saying that it cannot read disc, and something about the format. But it is also doing it with DVDs that worked just fine a little while back (before and after I entered the multizoning code). Does anyone have any idea what is happening and if there is anything I can do???

Thanks for any help anyone can offer


I’m not sure with LG units (Other brands do have this feature), but somewhere in your instruction book there may be a command to do a “factory reset” of your DVD recorder. Do the factory reset (which basically takes the unit back to the way it was when you bought it…) and then re-code the multi-zone command. If this doesn’t work then you need to take your recorder to LG service.


If you have trouble with “zone 0” movies you may rip them and burn them onto DVD.
