Question about Sony RDR-VX530 DVD Recorder/VCR
My three year old Sony RDR-VX530 makes a loud beep sound when I insert a DVD to play. I've tried reconnecting ALL cables, tuurning the unit off, different DVDs, etc... VHS tapes work fine. I thought that my son may have pressed a button or combination of buttons on the remote, but I can figure out which ones. Also, I am unable to change the settings in the SETUP menu. It appears to be stuck on the TIMER selection.
Does anyone have any ideas?

When a DVD player starts doing that, it either needs to be cleaned, or something is going wrong with the DVD mechanism inside of it. You can purchase DVD lens cleaner from any large retail store that has an electronics section. However, if you clean it and the problem persists, it will likely be cheaper to replace the unit rather than trying to have it repaired unless you're under warranty in which case any repair or exchange will be covered by said warranty. If you call the manufacturer they will give you your full range of options.
