    Yep, was very common on most of their models.

    LG HDD DVD recorder hard drive upgrade / clone

    If I recall, you can try another hard drive. Delete any existing partitions and let the machine format as needed, per the manual. If the same happens on the hdd, the machine is probably faulty and needs looking at by LG.

    The I Love Cats Thread

    We have the same issue with regular pills. Our vet let's us know which can be crushed and mixed with a little water or cat food gravy and we use a syringe to get it in puss-pal's mouth. She generally laps it down without issues, much easier and less stressful for all ;) But whole pills are a...

    Yep, mine looked the same. Post your results with the other temps when tried. Never got to the bottom of the transparent bubbling issue. Tried different nozzle temps (185 up to 240) but had the same results - put it down to old/bad filament stock and binned the spool as it's unusable.

    Check the product code on the box, if it starts with ST-, then this is the newer Super Tough PLA formula, which I also had adherence problems. To get a decent print and adherence I had to reduce the bed temp to 50C and the nozzle to 196-198C. If the bed is hotter than 50C, the PLA stays too...

    6v Rechargeable Battery type?

    Thanks guys - the more I read, it seems to be a 6v Ni-Cd, however also cannot find anything similar in size. Was hoping to just replace the batteries, but will probably just trash the entire unit and replace.

    6v Rechargeable Battery type?

    Nothing at all - even scraped off the double-sided tape carefully to see if there was anything printed under it - no luck.
