Question about Sony RDR-GX355

Command codes I accidentally switched my command code from dvd3 to dvd1 and now i am locked out of the player completely. it just keeps flashing dvd1 on the screen and thats it. How do I fix this? I saw directons to a page but I believe that page has been deleted. I think the premise was the problem was the command code for the remote. Ok....how do I change the command code on my remote to get the dvd recorder to start working again. Thank you very much in advance, James

Try to reset the player :You can also try a hard reset: Unplug unit from AC mains and remove all cables from unit. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the unit and see if it works..if this fails then you need Restart the recorder Press down power switch for more than 10 seconds until Sony DVD appears this will set to default factory setting in the player.....

I accidentally changed the command code from dvd3 to dvd1 and now my remote doesn't work, and I don't know how to access the systems menu to change it back.


Hi,
Since unit has been set on DVD1 remote mode so you need to set remote control itself on dvd1 mode to communicate with unit.
Press and hold Enter and 1 numeric key on remote control for 5 seconds, this will change remote control to dvd1 mode, now unit will accept remote control signal and you can operate it normally.
Thanks.

See the manual on page 22.
The solution is to reset your remote code to DVD1 (default is DVD3).

Press the ENTER button and NUMBER ONE button simultaneously for at least three seconds. Viola, control returns.

Locked out of the menue ,Need to reset command mode


Indeed, I did the same thing.... I did find the answer in the manual!
Here's a copy of it (pg 23):

Set the command mode for the remote so it matches
the command mode for the recorder you set above.
1 Hold down ENTER
2 While holding down ENTER, enter the
command mode code number using the
number buttons.
Command Mode Code number
DVD1 number button 1
DVD2 number button 2
DVD3 number button 3
3 Hold down both the number buttons and
ENTER at the same time for more than 3
seconds.
4 Let up, press RETURN, all done!

Remote doesn't work


Slide the bottom part of the remote control down. Switch the bottom right button to DVD 1. There might be a white sticker that covers it so remove the sticker first. Then hold down the "Enter" button and the "1" button down at the same time for a few seconds. That should make the remote work again.
