Not recording our sony rdrvx555

We haven't used our unit for awhile. We are following the directions, but no light goes on to show that it's transferring from the vcr to dvd. It doesn't work when we push the vcr botton to record. It plays vcrs and dvds fine though.

Make sure the DVD-R is 8x or SLOWER. They are difficult to find these days. The unit will not not give any specific warning when a faster disc is used, it just doesn't work. The burner is simply an IDE drive, so it is upgradeable, should you wish to risk that route.

SOURCE: I 'Finalized' the DVD but cannot play on another player

Does the machine record on to + or - DVDR?
If it does both try each type. Also try high quality discs, some of the cheaper types won't work. Try it on different speeds too.

SOURCE: After recording the DVD player, wont play on any other player

You need to "finalize" the dvd you created - usually on the machine that you created it on. The SONY RDR-VX525 finishes recording, then you have to go to the system menu and follow the prompts to do the "finalize". As it's finalizing, it should the word finalize on the front panel display. It'll run about a minute or two and then just stop without telling you what it did. It should be ready to play on any dvd player.

Just replaced the lamp and the tv still will not power on. The green standby light just blinks and double clicks. No red light


HI:
Make sure you replace the lamp door or the unit will not power on. Also make sure the lamp is seated properly, Most people when they replace the lamp they try to turn on the television with out replacing the cover and think there is a problem with the set, there is a safety switch on the lamp cover door that need to be closed in order for the unit to operate.

Also you can check the self diagnostic mode, to see if any faults exsists.
With power off, using the original remote press the display key followed by the number 5 key, followed by the volume down key then hit power. You have to do all four keys within 5 secs for the diagnostic screen to come up. If all goes well check the number recorded on the right, should indicated lamp cover has been removed and if you had a bad lamp it is will record the a number of times the unit tried to light the lamp but failed. To exit press the 8 key then enter to reset them numbers to zero and do process over again and try to turn on tv normally, if it shuts down then go back to diagnostics screen and see what the tv recorder as error.

Dvd eject problem


The drawer on a dvd player is a rack and gear drive. Sounds like you may have a bad motor or a jammed drawer. If you take it a part, see if you can find the motor that drives the drawer. It should have a worm gear on it. Try to turn it to release the drawer. It maybe out of time or slipped a tooth on the gear, hope this helps

Is it possible to record one show, while watching another ??


You need to put a cable splitter on the cable. One side goes to the TV. The other side goes to the recorder. The output of the recorder goes to one of the alternate inputs on the TV. Set the recorder for whatever channel you want to record using its internal tuner. Use the TV tuner to watch a show live. Later, set the TV input to whatever you connected the recorder output to and watch your recording. You will probably need to do this to see the recorder menu to set up the recording.

Does not record


Have you selected the correct input? These recorders are desinged to stop after 20 seconds of silence. Do you get any level showing on the record level meters? Press the source button until it shows 'analogue' if recording to the 2 phono inputs.

Video goes green and extremely jumpy around lighted objects


Sam,
Is the green color apparent in the recording if played back on something other that the camcorder? If it's simply there in viewer (ccd) then you might want to know that Sony is more than aware of ccd problems with that unit and there is an active recall on that cam.
You can call Sony at 1-866-703-7669 and if they determine that the ccd is the problem they will even send you a prepaid shipping lable...
If the color variation is also there in the recording - played back on something other than the camcorder - then the optic sensor, logic board or something else is the culprit.
