Sony rdr-hxd710 dvd/hdd recorder stuck on welcome.

Hi, all I can't get this contraption to do anything apart from display welcome on the LED screen. Nothing apart from the fan spinning everything else is just locked up. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Also have this same problem.
    "Welcome" then a bit of noise from fan and HDD, then dies again, and back to "Welcome".  So far tried:


    Removing power for several mins.
    Holding down power button for 10-15 seconds.
    Holding down power button while powering up from mains.


    With TV connected, just a grey screen. Unit NOT booting up so no system menus appearing. Looks fatal to me. Not got a lot of hope from other web comments, apparently Sony just say take to a service centre. 


    Hope a solution is possible. Otherwise It will be a Humax. Lost faith in Sony i think.

    Hi, I have a RDR HX825 Sony HDD recorder and I have the same problem. I get the message welcome and then nothing. I can reset the system by holding the power for 10 sec but nothing happens. I hear the harddisk and the fan but no signal output and nothing on the display.

    When connecting the power the welcome appears for approx 10 seconds then powers off. This repeats after about 35 seconds.

Set your Television to the corresponding input line. If you have the DVD recorder connected to your television input 1 line. Set your television to input 1 line. The recorder is just waiting for your command to set your time and area ...etc.

My dvd player rdr-hxd860 seems to be frozen on 'welcome'


I've had the same problem. I've actually unplugged the unit and it's been unplugged for probably about two weeks. When I reconnected the power this morning the problem persisted where the DVD Recorder was stuck on the Welcome Screen. As a last ditch effort I pressed and held the power button for 10 to 15 seconds until the word "Welcome" dissapeard of the screen and back on. This seems to have reset the unit. I know I should have tried this a long time ago. So much for reading the instruction manual! I'm just glad it's working again!
