It could be a bad solder connection in the power supply that opens up after warming up (you may be able to tap on the unit to get it to come and go) or you could have a capacitor that is drifting out of tolerance or some semiconductor device that is becoming leaky. It may take a repair shop to figure it out for you.

When powering up it starts then shuts off in about 5 seconds?

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary. //

I purchased a second Sony RDR-VX525 Video Cassette Recorder/DVD Recorder for our bedroom to replace a failing Zenith VCR recorder/player. I began using the Sony VHS/DVD recorder to transfer our movies...

This is a known issue that happens with these players

To fix the Sony remote dvd-1 dvd-2 dvd-3 issue, take the remote for that recorder into another room or unplug the dvd recorder a moment. Then hold down the enter key and the number of the mode its stuck in ie if its stuck in dvd-1 mode hold down the enter key and then the 1 key. hold both buttons together for 3 seconds. After this go back into the room and try it or if you unplugged the player, then replug it back in. The remote has to be away from the player to work. again

here is an example

<stuck in dvd-1mode> get away from player different room so it can not sence remote. Hold down enter and 1 button for 3 seconds and then try it
if its stuck in dvd-2 mode dold down enter and the number 2 button together for 3 secondsd and try it. The idea is you have to be far away from the recorder so it dosent recieve any inputs from the remote while doing this.

Let me know if you are still having problems with this and I would be glad to help you.

hi, i have the same device, with the same problem, i was told by sony service centre managment that this is a known error that is being researched to find a permanent resolution. They have no fix for it yet and said they will contact me when a solution is available, the only solution at the moment is to manually set timers for programs airing on channel ten, eleven and ONE.

Losing Audio Halfway Through Recording

The audio failure sounds more like a VHS player failure than a DVD software/recorder failure. Both audio and video are transferred at the same time to the DVD, and as long as the DVD recorder is working, that's really all there is. I would check the VHS player and confirm that the sound actually works all the way through.

Complete power loss - 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500

It sounds like either alternator or computer, I f you can get it to run on its own pull the positive battery cable off the battery and if it dies its your alternator. And this is no real way to check the computer except going up to a AutoZone and they can check codes for free
