Question about Toshiba MW24FM1 24 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Sony MW24FM1 either won't respond to DVD commands, or turn-off

Sony MW24FM1 will not respond to DVD commands, from remote or manually, e.g., open tray, play, etc.

If a DVD is inserted in the try, the DVD may play for a few minutes and then suddenly the TV turns-off, and all DVD commands are inoperative. This problem occurs with known good DVDs. Sometimes unplugging TV from 117 VAC wall socket overnight at least allows opening of the DVD tray to take out a DVD.

Any suggestions?

Sounds like a bad power board. They have random meltdowns all too often. Usually the cause is an overheated transformer caused by power transistor short outs. Possibly sell it. Could get over $100 for it if sold online.

Hi I have a sony dvd recorder gx360 that will not work with my remote. When try, it displays dvd 2 on front of the panel. I think its locked, how do I unlock it?


You have got the wrong remote code!
I have copied this from the manual....

Set the command mode for the remote so it matches the command mode for the recorder you set above. Follow the steps below to set the command mode on the remote. A Hold down ENTER. B While holding down ENTER, enter the command mode code number using the number buttons. Command Mode DVD1 - number button 1 DVD2 - number button 2 DVD3 - number button 3 C Hold down both the number buttons and ENTER at the same time for more than three seconds.


The correct "default" for the remote is DVD3!
The full manual is available free on this website:

Recorder is set to DVD command mode 1 and remote is set to DVD command mode 3 . Remote will not respond so i can not get to menu to reset. Is there any way around this problem


There is a manual for this model available in pdf format unless you have the original instruction book. Page 23 outlines 'command mode' where you can try pressing ENTER and the corresponding number buttons simultaneously on the remote for more than 3 seconds while pointing RC at the recorder. In your case, because your recorder is set to command mode 1 - press ENTER and 1 together on the remote. This should allow you back into the on-screen menu to revert the command mode back to 3 (which is the default) and it should work.
The online pdf manual for this model: http://www.docs.sony.com/release/RDRVX560_EN_ES.pdf unless you still have the original. Pages 22-24 show some of the setup procedures. The pdf is not very big so you can save it for future use if needed.

Need remote code for DVD player


From my searches I don't think you will find it. Try going to http://www.sony.ca/view/cic_contact.htm and asking them directly for it. I can't see them saying no.

I have Sony RDR-VX535 and suddenly every time I press the remote it reads DVD 3 and does not perform any of the functions that I requested.


Your DVD recorder is set on DVD-3 remote option, check DVD Recorder remote lower section for DVD Mode button that has 3 options, set it on DVD-3 and recorder will start responding on your commands of remote.

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.
