LG RH1999H Timer Recording Error

#1

Hi, I have the LG RH1999H DVD Recorder for 8 years now. Recently for a few weeks now when I set the Timer Recording to record, it does not stop at the designated time, it records further. I am then unable to press stop using any buttons on remote or player. THE ONLY button that seem to work is the Power Button and in doing this, I lose whatever I was recording.

Can u advise further.

Is the media you record on also 8 years old?

Hi there

I have not done any modifications to it nor have I replaced any parts inside my recorder. However, I do here a clicking sound from the hard drive as its spinning.

My drive is only 40% used with content on it.

I could try and connect the LG DVD Recorder to my pc to get all the stuff off it and do a reset or something. But this will take me forever as I have 10 hours of recorded media to backup.

Ask a specialist to make a backup copy of the contents, if still possible.

Hi There Folks

I have the laser replaced of my LG RH1999H DVD Recorder. It’s still giving me the same %$*I< problem.

I set the timer record and it does not even detect the timer recording. If it does record, only records for like 5seconds then the unit just powers down.

Also, when it records the time display counts up to 20:00 then jumps to 9:00 then back up then counts down by 1 second then just powers down for no reason.

When I had the laser replaced the technician told me that there was nothing wrong with the DVD and the Hard drive and that it was still working fine.

I think its time I rather just cut my losses and get a new machine.

How do you guys feel about the Model: RH387 and the Model: RH399. Please advise before I purchase this.

Regards

I am trying to fix my LG RH1999H and require a link to the firmware updates. Can anyone advise how and where I can retrieve the files. I am trying the foreign language LG sites but nothing so far.
