Question about Sony RDR-VX515 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

No Picture I bought this dvd recorder over a year ago from American, moved and never really tried to hook it up. Then, after settling, tried to hook it up through a cable box and then just with a coax cable. NOTHING. I stopped at American 3x asking them to just hook it up and make sure it works. They didn't and said they were too busy. I then stopped by on the last day of the warranty and they told me what "THEY" thought I was doing wrong and said they would honor the warranty if it didn't work this time. Anyone with suggestions on why I can't even get a picture through cable, dvd or tape. I stopped by American and, believe it or not, they couldn't get it to work. Shocker. They won't honor the warranty like they said. Any suggestions.

    My story is exactly like yours. Bought the unit and it sat until I had the time to copy my home movies to dvd and sure enough no picture just sound. Tried all the wires and nothing. Doesn't surprise me...Sony has sure gone to the dogs. I buy...used to buy Sony. I know also have a 60" wide screen tv that's sitting waiting to be repaired. Optical block and lamp.

I was just wondering if Magnavox Dvd/VCr combo MWR20V6 is a multi-region dvd player?


all dvd players are region free when you first buy them, they set the region themselves, after 5 dvd's have been played on them. So if you had a european dvd player and played 5 USA dvd's on it , it would lock to the USA region and you would be unable to play european dvd's on it. Exactly what a friend did many years ago when he bought a load of american dvd films from someone and played them on his brand spanking new dvd player :)

Is third time a charm. Again several years ago I


Here is the owner's manual for your DVD machine. This is a VHS recorder but not a DVD recorder. To record VHS tapes to DVDs, you will need a DVD recorder.
You will plug the yellow video out connector on the VHS to the yellow 'Video in' connector on the DVD Recorder. Do the same for the red and white audio connections, out on the VHS, IN on the DVD Recorder. Connect your TV to the DVD recorder so you can see the picture you are recording.

Interface error! Trun off the power


Okay...sounds like you have a lot of signal splitting as well as devices that may also weaken your signal. With digital cable, you won't see snow or what would be a dead give-away to a weak signal. Only analog signals do that. Digital signals give you crisp clear picture or they drop out.

Try taking the cable directly from the wall to the DVD-Recorder. If you are able to watch channels and manipulate the device, then you can start from there as the source is good and the recorder is good.

Try to place the DVD-Recorder after the first splitter and see if you still receive stable signal. You'll probably need to leave the unit in this part of your A/V chain.

It really sounds like you need a signal amplifier for all the splitting you've done, or to re-work your A/V stack into something more manageable. It is entirely possible that the built-in tuner of the new DVD-Recorder is not as sensitive as the old unit.

Sounds like the disk loaded new firmware, and new isnt always better. If you can get the older firmware file you may be able to flash it again and put it back to it's former self.
Check with Panasonic's website under support.

Sounds like a hardware issue. Given that the device is 2 years old, I would suggest buying a new one. Dvd recorders are not too expensive these days and you might save yourself a lot of headache by doing that. You might also try TIVO or some other form of dvr service, or set your computer up as a dvr if you know how.
