You can try a factory reset (reboot).Here are the steps..

The following will set your recorder to the Factory defaults.
(Will not format HD on DMRE80).

With power off (stand-by mode/CLOCK DISPLAY SHOWING):

1)Press and hold [skip reverse] [Time Slip] [Eject] buttons for about 10 sec
2)Display will show 'L1 TEST'
3)Now power off DURING TEST
4)Clock should be fashing 12:00
5)Turn power on and language menu will be displayed on TV

Use for
DMRE50
DMRE55
DMRE85
For the DMRE75V press both [dub] buttons and [eject].

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Sony rdr-hxd710 dvd/hdd recorder stuck on welcome.

Set your Television to the corresponding input line. If you have the DVD recorder connected to your television input 1 line. Set your television to input 1 line. The recorder is just waiting for your command to set your time and area ...etc.

SOURCE: SONY RDR GX120 stuck on WELCOME message

I have similar problem. I found that if I remove the outer casing (disconnect from mains supply first) and disconnect the DVD cable to the units circuit board then power up again it would clear the problem, but on reconnecting it then trying again the ‘Welcome’ message returned as before. I’m guessing it’s a problem with the DVD drive or its connection. The only other thing I have noticed is, if you do manage to clear the ‘Welcome’ message and leave the unit switched on with the standby button the unit works as normal.

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!

CAN VIEW THE DVD ON A COMPUTER OR THE DVD RECORDER BUT NOT ON DVDS PLAYERS BOUGHT BEEFORE THE RECORDER


This is quite common of older players. Some only work with DVD+R discs and others with DVD-R discs.
Some player also does not read recordable discs (an early form to try prevent piracy)
Also make sure if recorded on your Recorder, that the disc is finalized before you try to play it on an older player. (See your menu / manual on the recorder for the procedure)

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.
