Hi I have a sony dvd recorder gx360 that will not work with my remote. When try, it displays dvd 2 on front of the panel. I think its locked, how do I unlock it?

You have got the wrong remote code!
I have copied this from the manual....

Set the command mode for the remote so it matches the command mode for the recorder you set above. Follow the steps below to set the command mode on the remote. A Hold down ENTER. B While holding down ENTER, enter the command mode code number using the number buttons. Command Mode DVD1 - number button 1 DVD2 - number button 2 DVD3 - number button 3 C Hold down both the number buttons and ENTER at the same time for more than three seconds.

The correct "default" for the remote is DVD3!
The full manual is available free on this website:

I have a sony rdr-gx 360 with no remote and tey are very expensive to replace. can i get a universal remote for this?

Many universal remotes will operate (with some limitation) most SONY products including DVD recorders. You can maybe find a universal remote either on eBay, website (or similar addresses) or perhaps your local electronics store has them in stock - and those are relatively cheap to buy off the shelf. It would then be a question of figuring out and entering the right code for it to (minimally) control the unit. The best universals are the all-in-one types although a 4-in-1 works just as well. Elaborate function remotes will cost more than the basic ones.

I connected dvd to recorder to tv - I get sound but no picture


It simply means there is an error in the connection of the cable to the television.

first ensure that there is a cable plugged to the video out of the dvd then you trace the wire and connect the other end to the vidoe in of the television.

After doing this, your display will come on, on the television.

Try to use new cables, in order for there not to have been a breakage in the old cable you were trying to use.

Take care

Disc tray will not open

I've not found one, no, but I have managed to strip the machine down, get the disc out and rebuild... I guess this is too late for you but it's simple enough if you're still trying.

Try this - You will need remote.
After you have recorded video... (if you eject disk all will be lost)
- Push "Setup"
- Now push "Edit"
On left hand side it should now show "Finalize disk".
I also lost manual and took a few minutes to find.
