Question about Philips CDR778 2-Disc CD Recorder

1 Answer

My CDR778 screen is in Japanese now?!

The screen on the CDR778 looks like it is all in japanese now. I cant read it, do I need to get a translation booklet, or is there an easier way to fix this? All the other functions seem to work. Thank you.

Is it possible to change the language on mdv727dt?

Hi, I've had a look around and found the original Japanese manual and did a Google Translate on it, but there is nowhere in the manual that shows a menu setting to change language. All the instructions are purely related to GPS, DVD, USB etc.

I think this unit was released for the Japanese market only. The traffic alert system on it is Japanese.

There are sites where you can pay to download a manual (but they seem to have the Japanese version) or you can try Google Translate on the original

Change japanese to english on clarion NX308

I learned this trick a few months ago and it is worth gold!

Get a smartphone with Google Translator on it, borrow one if you have to. Use the camera feature in Google Translator and point it at the screen. Magically, all the text turns to from Japanese to English when you highlight it. Look for Settings - Set Up - Language or similar.

I have a japanese DCR-trv20 cam corder the on screen instructions are in japanese - can I change them to english

Yes, but you have to read the Japanese to get back to English. I suggest using Google Translate to read the Japanese. Go to the Google page and select "more" and then select "Translate".

Unfortunately, the x2gen company has declared bankruptcy and gone out of business due to legal trouble ( Manuals are no longer available online.

Unless you can find someone who can read the menus for you, or has an old manual laying around, I can pose a couple alternative, albeit tedious, solutions.

Using you can translate your menu... that is, you can type "BRIGHTNESS" in English, and request the Japanese translation. Locate the text in the menu that matches the translation. Tedious, yes, but it would work. To use this for non-arabic based character sets, you will need to install a Japanese font on your system, otherwise the text will return as "?????" question marks (in place of each Japanese character).

Another alternative would be to take a photograph of your menu screen and submit it to a forum to have an online user do the translation for you...

Just some ideas - hopefully you can make some progress...
