Dvd frozen When the dvd player is switched on from mains power welcome comes up on screen but it doesnt do anything else. The remote wont work tp change channels or settings and the buttons on the machine wont work either. Neither the dvd or hdd lights light up, seems to be frozen at welcome. Have tried turning off at wall and leaving it off for a day and retrying but nothing is working. Any suggestions would be great!!

SOURCE: unable to change the DVD 1 Command Mode back to DVD 3 (DEFAULT) SETTING

Solution 5 worked for me except that after going to the System Menu I pressed ~ Setup~Options and changed the Command Mode back to Mode 3. This locked the remote from exiting, but turning off the power and restarting restored the ability to show the System Menu. I then used the System Menu to Restore factory settings and all functions returned to normal in Command Mode 3.

SOURCE: hdd error

try replacing the red sata cable which runs from the HDD under the DVD drive to the main board on the right-hand side. these are a common problem on these models, there cheap and unreliable. you can purchase a better quality cable from a computer store for little money. HDD ERROR is'nt necessery an HDD fault as i found out with my rdr-hx525. if however the HDD is faulty and you buy a replacement, once installed you will need to pair the new HDD with the unit by entering the service mode by unplugging the AC then while holding down open/close and play together then re-insert the AC lead while still holding open/close and play and wait until you see an "S" in the display then let go and the service mode will appear on the tv screen. go to no.9 HDD mode, press enter then go to no.3 Write ID then it will say "execute write ID?" yes and press enter and then it will say "writing HDD serial ID.... OK" once this is done, exit the service mode by keeping your finger on the power button for approx 10secs. your DVD recorder should now recognise the new HDD. if you don't follow this process, you will still have an HDD error message as your DVD recorder will have your old HDD installed and won't recognise your new one. given the amount of time since you posted this fault, you may still have the unit in question in which case i hope this solution is helpful, or for anyone else with the same problem.

SOURCE: my dvd player rdr-hxd860 seems to be frozen on 'welcome'

I've had the same problem. I've actually unplugged the unit and it's been unplugged for probably about two weeks. When I reconnected the power this morning the problem persisted where the DVD Recorder was stuck on the Welcome Screen. As a last ditch effort I pressed and held the power button for 10 to 15 seconds until the word "Welcome" dissapeard of the screen and back on. This seems to have reset the unit. I know I should have tried this a long time ago. So much for reading the instruction manual! I'm just glad it's working again!

The main power supply board has the fault. It might be replaced. It is best to replace as card basis, rather than making 'surgery' to it.

DVD player froze, now only turns off


Sounds like the power supply in the dvd player has failed. It works just well enough to turn on the led infront but as soon as you go to do anything it shuts off. This is common in cheaper dvd players. Unless you can troubleshoot electronics. Or know someone that can. Your best bet is to unplug the unit and disassemly and retrieve your dvd.
