    SONY DVD monitor XAV-77 requesting lost PIN CODE. The manual has been lost. Sony answer is to take it to their repair shop and be charged for product support. Apparently its a serious of command keys from the remote and the unit itself. These series of command will unlock or clear the internal memory of the unit and make way for another, they are just not willing to give it. If I could get intructions on what keys to press that would be great.

    Thanks

    Hi



    I tried the master password 4357, and that didn't work, it came up with "Code Error" message after i pressed enter. Awaiting further instructions.



    Thanks

    Hi

    This unit has only got four segments to enter the pin. If you move forward one to the next digit after enter the first four digits it just comes back to the first one. I have also tried 0000, 1111, 2222, 3's and so forth all the way to 9999 and it still wont open. The original installer 3 years ago don't keep records of such pins we've tried already, and Sony won't give the product support necessary. Awaiting further instructions.

    Thanks

    Sony Australia Product support is not willing to hand out the code for free. They've adviced me to take it to their repair shop to be charged $80 to reset the unit. The code is a four digit pin and even if I press the reset button on the unit it still request the code or reset pin. The pin was in the original manual which has been misplaced. Does anyone know what the master reset pin is?

    Hi

    I'm unable to unlock my SONY XAV-77 in-dash monitor(Car Audio) after
    changing DVD player and unplugging The power. Code for unlocking has been
    lost a long time ago along with the manual.

    I've downloaded the user manual and I've tried to reset the unit but its still
    requesting the CODE. Its a Four Digit Master Pin to Unlock the unit.

    Its installed in a 2004 Honda Integra.

    Sony's answer is to take it to their repair shop and be charged for product
    support or they are just not willing to give it.
    If I could get instructions on what keys or the master code that would be great.

    I've tried the password 4357 as suggested by a forum member. I've tried the obvious
    0000 1111 through to 9999, and non of them worked, it came up with
    "Code Error" message after I pressed enter.

    At this stage I need a master pin to overwrite the pin choosen during instalation
    and make way for another.

    I've also tried 1589,5898, 1103, and 1034 from this five digit pin a member

The code is five numbers, but there is no fixed code, your pin was set and assigned when you purchased the unit.

If you have lost the pin code the only way out is contacting the seller, that can access the code associate with your unit, the ony alternative is trying all 99999 codes.

The code will be present in the manual.

If you dont have manual you need to contact dealer to get the code .

There is no other way to get the unlock code .
