Re: panel front

The first unit might have a broken or crack front panel,is possible since it was purchased new,it will be a good idea to remove the top cover and try to see if something is broken in the front,you can also remove the front and have a better look.Let Us know how it goes,make sure the unit is not plug in if you try it.

Once again a simple GOOGLE search, and the first thing on the list is the manual for this unit!

I suspect this is what you need.

Deactivating the Buttons on the Unit
(Child Lock)
You can deactivate the buttons on the unit
(except for on/off) for preventing misoperation, such as child mischief.
Hold down
(stop/square black button)
on the unit for more than 5 seconds."LOCKED" appears in the front panel display.
The child lock function is activated and the buttons on the unit are locked. (You can operate the system by using the remote control.)
To cancel, hold down
(stop/square black button)
for more than 5 seconds until "UNLOCK" appears in the front panel display.

If that's not the problem, here's the link for the manual.

Sony DVP-S7000 DVD player does not respond to front panel buttons or the remote control

The only possible solution and it is a long shot, unplug unit from wall receptical, now press and hold power for 60 seconds, this will drain any residual voltage and reset the microprocessor in hopes it will work. If this fails I recommend the sony technician.

How to get unit to play without remote

You can probably use the front panel buttons (STOP PLAY OPEN/CLOSE etc) manually, the only thing you cannot do without the remote is access certain DVD menus, including subtitles/language/special features etc. You can always obtain and use a universal remote for basic menu functions later on if necessary.

To play a DVD movie without the remote, simply load your preferred disc, wait for the player to finish reading its contents, then to skip copyright warnings and/or the 'play movie' menu screen, press STOP, then PLAY, or simply press PLAY button where 'play movie' (or whatever function) is highlighted in the menu. These buttons should be on the front of the main unit. Doing this should encourage the player to detect the appropriate title (the movie) and play it (basic playback operation may not be possible with some DVD releases due to the numerous interactive menus and title pages, such as film trailers).

If basic manual operation is not completely possible with some DVD titles, consider a universal remote for your player if you have either lost your original, or the player was purchased/received without one. Such remotes are relatively inexpensive to purchase, and are available just about everywhere.

Sony AVD-S50ES DVD Player Had this in storage. Decided to sell. Verified it played CD's and DVD's video and audio were being sent out appropriately. Track info displayed on front panel. Buyer claims...

Be careful that it isn't a scam.
Some people will claim non-functionality hoping to get a refund without having to return the perfectly working unit.
It's possible it was damaged in shipping, but unlikely if it was packed well.

If they are demanding a refund, tell them that your policy is like any other - they need to return the unit, and once you have verified that the unit is indeed defective, you will issue a refund.

Any button pushed on my remote control causes ''SET 1'' on display.

Hi, All you need to do is point the remote at your DVD player and hold both the number "1" and "enter" keys down for about 10 seconds. Evidently that re-sets the remote. It worked for me so good luck.

Help with dvd player DRC282 remote code

I purchased this same DVD player (DRC282) and none of my universal remotes worked for it. Since I was lucky enough to buy one without a remote, I ended up purchasing an RCA universal remote (RCR3273). Once again, none of the codes worked so I had to unplug the unit for 5 minutes, then plug it back in and hold the Standby button for 15 seconds to return it to it's factory settings. I manually searched through 71 codes before I found a match but the play, pause, rewind and many other functions failed. I tried again skipping over 71 and found the right code at 115 tries. That one had all the functionality I needed. You should try the same strategy with your Comcast universal remote. Skip the first match and keep going until you hit the second manual match.

Menu scrambled

Try resetting the unit. On the front panel of the unit (not the remote) hold down the channel up and down buttons for 5-7 seconds without a disc inside. This is a factory reset.

I did this this morning and so far so good.

Remote control does not work at all.

The winner is....

SET 1 on the console; press and hold the ENTER button down and while holding Enter; press and hold "1" button for about ten seconds together. Your remote and console should be in sync again and try cutting off the dvd recorder with the remote and it should work.

DMR-ES30V remote and DVD panel buttons not responding

I assume you have fixed this by now, but if not, call panasonic's help line (number is in your owner's manual). They will walk you through the complete reset process (maybe 5 minutes). you will have to re-program everything the same as you did when it first came out of the box, but that doesn't take too long. Also, first try taking the batteries out of the remote. Make sure they are still good. Wait 60 seconds or longer, then replace batteries.
