Sony remote RM-DX500 not working with Disc Explorer 400 DVP-CX985V, but does work with tv. How can I program it to work the dvd player?

There are 2 set's of command switch's for the dvd player, a 3 position command switch on the back side of the dvd player and another 3 position command switch on the inside of the remote right next to the batteries, easiest option is to remove batteries from remote and test each one of the 3 position switch's labeled 1,2 & 3 and test remote control.

Standby mode off

Is there an LED that blinks on the remote when you try to use it?
If not , make sure the batterys are fresh and in the right way.
If nothing works on it , there are places on-line that sells replacements cheaper than Sony

Cannot Play message on a Sony DVP-CX995V

Probably dust in the reader/lens assembly.

Suddenly "cannot play this disk" on Sony DVD/CD..every DVD...CD's work!

I have the same problem. I have a 5 year warranty from the company I purchased the unit from. I am not sure if they will replace it or not. I am reluctant to buy another one with this known issue. We have enjoyed the unit for nearly 3 years with no issues.
