Question about Sony RDR-HX715 DVD Recorder

3 Answers

Crashes often-goes to recovery-works again

This happens in play and in record it sometimes records correctly, sometimes half a show, sometimes won't even start to record, Use wise this recorder is almost new since I quickly replaced it with panasonics and others when it started acting up but as they wear out and can't be replaced anymore I'd love to be able to start using this Sony again, my favorite for picture quality. Thanks for your help!

If it crashes and restart is either a firmware problem or an hardware fault.

If it freezes in the middle of the playing it can be a drty lens problem.

If it turns power off completely, then it is probably a faulty power unit.

    The fact that has problems in playing and recording let me think that there can also be a dirty lens problem.
    Try using a good dvd cleaner, possibly a good one with cleaning solution, like the ones on this list.


    If the unit is restarting itself there may also be a firmware problem. The model is not on Sony website. Contact them on live chat, using the button at the left of this page to know what to do if the lens cleaner does not work.

    More precisely, as pointed out,

    If it repeat operation (crashes) after WELCOME is displayed, it is likely a firmware problem or a fault. Better to contact Sony , see Contact Live chat button on this page.

    If it shows Disc Error on display when you record or play, or -- or 00 or freezes very often while playing and recording, it is probably the lens. Try lens cleaner first.
    If that does not work, next step should be isopropyl alcohol and cotton to clean the lens, but for that you need to take apart the unit.

Device will not play previously recorded discs or record new info,but will play shop bought discs.on occasions it will display disc error. i am using new discs.


I Have had this same problem with DVD recorders. They sometimes will not play disc that were recorded on another player, you have to play these on the recorder that you used to make the recording. When recording you must finalize the discs to get them to play in other recorders, if they aren't finalized then the dvd wont recognize them as being recorded, there is no starting point set on the disc for the laser to pick up on. I have also ran into discs bought at the store that were not any good and I couldn't record on them, or when I did I would get the disc error message also. Try another brand of disc,say Memorex or Soney amd see if these will work, make sure they are compatible with the player, and they are the correct format for your player. There are 2 types DVD -R and DVD + R the + R work better on a wider range of players.

It shows disc problem on every disc I put in it


Please check you have the correct region code and that matches the code on the dvd`s you are trying to play.
Have a look in your manual they list cd`s that won`t play.
Another thing has it not been used for sometime, or been in a cold room , bring it into a warmer room ,plug it in and leave on for 2 hours and it should remove any moisture..

VCR records TV shows, but doesn't play them on other VCR's


The machines playabilty setting has gone off. take to nearest repair shop and they will probably reset or change guide posts.
These components normally will allow a tape recorded in one machine to play on another. Had many of those esp from camcorder to vcr

Try cleaning the lens. A commercial lens cleaner should do the job, but if not, contact me again, and I'll try to help you clean it manually

Error code E 4 54040990


You need to go into the set up menu and select recording options. On the recording options menu, scroll down to dubbing options. On the dubbing options menu select either VCR to DVD or DVD to VCR.
Recording and Dubbing are not the exactly the same thing. You use the record buttons to record TV directly to VCR/DVD you use the dubbing buttons and set up to record DVD to VCR or VCR to DVD.
Hope this helps.

ILO DVDR05 recorded DVD's freeze


Burn your DVDs at tow positions slower than what the system and discs say. It sounds as if there is a huge amount of error being introduced during the write process. Unfortunately, the old discs can only be recovered with an external program like Zero Assumption Recovery or the like....accordianman

Won't format and or won't read disc


I have a similar problem in that it will not record at all or not record very well.  It has a drive inside like a PC DVD drive called the DVD RAM drive. The horrible clunking (grinding) sound is the disc slipping in the spindle. Unfortunately here in Australia the fix is to replace the whole drive (AU$350)!! 
I have opened it up and tried to adjust the force of the spindle and it works for a while.
Hope somebody has a better solution.
