Dvd recorder loss of power

My dvd recorder has just started to decide to lose all power after about ten minutes of being repowered up. I have to disconnect the power lead and then reconnect, to go through it's normal motions of self check and everything is working fine. No matter what it's in the middle of, it then suddenly loses all power.

Re: dvd recorder loss of power

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.

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.

I have a LVC-9016 combo..It does not record now..will give a protected content response regardless of disc.

Try unplugging power cord for ten or fifteen minutes, if this does not help try using a cleaner CD.

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.

VCR plays tapes, then within 5 minutes we lose sound, and the picture is "choppy". This does the same thing when we try to watch DVDs, and this started happening about a week ago - we've done no...

Check all the cables and wires,might need is to be replaced,if u still have the same problems,the device have problems,buy a new one,not worth the priced to repair it,the DVD recorder/VCR combo is pretty cheap these days.
