Question about Sony RM-DX450 LCD Remote Control
How I got my DVD
from ”lock” condition
My DVD (Panasonic m: DMR-ES10) had gone to ”locked” condition without any warning.
Perhaps the reason was that I transfered the machine when it was on and recording was going…
Guidebook didn´t help to resolve the problem, neither Internet. Finally I managed to solve the promlem . This is how i did step by step:
1) Power on
4) no disc
6) to others
8) select down arrow
10) select right arrow
11) setings for playback
13) ratings (level8)
15) No limit
17) ”The Recorder is now unlocked” (picture of open lock)
After this DVD works normally.

Try the command code switch. I recently had a similar problem when my remote suddenly stopped working. It worked fine one time but nothing the next time I tried it.
I checked the emitter with a digital camera and found it was not working. I did the remote reset (remove batteries and push all the buttons twice, reinsert batteries) and the emitter was now working. However, the remote would still not control the base unit. I did the remote base code reset (push power, volume and TV/DVD buttons together) but this did not help. I then checked the command code switch. This is a small three position slide switch located in the battery compartment on the remote. I slid the switch back and forth several times returning to the default number one setting where it was before. I did not change anything on the base unit but the remote now worked.
Hope this helps.

You can repair some of these remotes. Usually the hard part is getting the cover off. they are not really made to be serviced. The problem with most all remotes that start doing what you describe is either wear or something spilled on it. You can fix it. Sony remotes may have 1 screw in the battery compartment. remove it and try sliding the front and back. If that dosen't work try prying from one side with a sharp edege. If you do manage to get it open take the PC board out. You will see a rubber like membrane that lays against the board. Try cleaning that with a qtip and rubbing alcahol. Then clean the PC board the same way especially where the pads of rubber contact the board. Make sure it's completely dry and snap it back together. If it works better good, if not the pads are to worn and you just have to replace. Good Luck.

If you have had a battery leak then this is a very bad thing. It's possible that the battery acid could have corrupted the system board in the remote. I would call Sony to see if they have any suggestions for you, however I think you may end up needing to replace the remote.

My CFD-f10 showed "no disk" after not being used for a few months. Before that it began to stick or skip toward the end of the disk. The trouble was the drive mechanism was failing to move easily due to poor lubrication of the CD drive mechanism. It can be lubricated, but the job is difficult. The top must be opened. First unplug from 120 V and also remove all 6 D batteries, then take 7 screws out from the top. One is under the Tape lid. Two are under the CD lid. Four are along the back. Also take out the screw from the bottom that holds the antenna. There are little arrows next to those screws. Do not take out any more screws than those. Gently lift the top, which includes the CD and tape lids, from the rear while moving the top a little toward the rear. It will seem very tight at first. Do not force it, but keep gently prying. There are circuit boards close to the seam, so do not pry open with long tools. The rear will lift up about 1.5". The handle stays attached to the bottom. Then the flat ribbon cable must be pulled from the ivory socket. The ends of the cable stick into the socket. The socket remains on the circuit board. As the top is raised further, unplug the cables preventing movement, Carefully note where they are plugged in. After the top is opened about 90 degrees, leaving the tape drive still close to the bottom cabinet, remove the 4 CD drive attachment screws with metal washers at the colored rubber washers and also the cable. Now the CD drive can be removed. With very fine synthetic clock oil, I lubricated the end of the motor shaft, (lift the plastic cover a little by unclipping the little snaps.) Very gently operate the mechanism by pushing on the larger gears. Sony had lubricated most, but the lub must have gotten thick with age. Put a little synthetic oil wherever there are moving parts. By turning the gears by hand, you will tell if all is working freely. Then carefully put all back together. Yes the CFD-f10 now does play CDs again!!! I do not know for how long. (Sony style outlet online is selling the newer refurbished CFD-S350 silver boom boxes for about $37.00, which also uses the more desirable 6 "D" batteries, and comes with remote. I have one on order.) The synthetic clock oil can be obtained from any company selling jewery or clock parts, but it is quite expensive, easily half what the refurbished CFD-S350 costs.
