Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

I have a Sony VCR/DVD recorder RDR-VX450. It has gone into DVD1 mode. Due to this it can only be operated manually and not through the remote which aids pre recordings. I have a manual but this does not explain how to remedy the fault. Have you any ideas?

Hi found answer to our problem on a RC Forums. My dvd is back in business.

Try this, Turn on the DVD and your TV. Press "enter" and button 1 for 5 seconds and it will take you to Setup ( you might need to press System Menu). If pressing "enter" and 1 does not work try "enter" 2 and so forth. Now you can revert back to DVD 3 and enter.

Hope this sorts your problem aswell. Happy watching and recording.

Rdr-vx450 manual required please. dvd/vcr recorder lost my manual for sony rdr-vx450


You can download a pdf manual directly from Sony. See the following URL:

http://support.sony-europe.com/tvhc/dvbr/hdd/dvr/dvr.aspx?site=odw_en_GB&m=RDR-VX450

You will need Adobe Reader to view the manual. Most computers have this installed already, but you can download for free from www.adobe.com if you don't already have it.

I can't return to command mode dvd3 (default) from dvd1. Now my remote is useless and I can't find a way to bring up the main menu so I can get back into command mode dvd3.


Hi,
Slide remote lower cover and look for DVD Command mode set switch, set it to DVD-3 position, your RDR-VX530 will accept remote commands.
Thanks.

Set up sony RDR-VX535 recorder to DVD1. now remote does not work.


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!

Switched to command mode DVD1(I know...) book: you will be unable to operate this recorder. That's all they wrote. Can't undo. Nothing works-screen freeze. HELP???


To solve the problem you need to change the command code on the remote control to 1. Point the remote to the unit, and press 1 on the remote.

I had the same problem also.

Command mode change disabled remote


According to Sony, if you turn the power on and hold the Enter key and the #1 key down together for at least 3 seconds, everything will default back to factory settings.

OK..I see the problem now.. Basically, you have to set both the remote and the recorder to the same command mode. (Default id DVD3). Please see the user manual I have posted in your premium query. It will tell you how to do this on page 22.
