Question about Toshiba DR550 DVD Recorder

The unit turns on by itself. There is nothing programed to record

Every hour or so it turns on. The display shows the clock, no channel and you can hear it running.

Unit turns on and off but nothing else works


Simultaneously press the [CHANNEL UP] and [CHANNEL DOWN] buttons on the front of the DVD Recorder for approximately 10 - 15 seconds (until the unit powers off).

Disconnect the wall outlet. Wait for 10 minutes. Then power up.

1) Set current time:
Press reset button to clear all programs , display should flash 12:00 AM Monday
Press and hold CLOCK button.
Press Hour, minute and day buttons until current hour minute and day display.
Release Clock button.
Next step is to program the timer
Example shows how to turn on at 5PM each day and turn off at 11 PM each day.
2) Programming review: Each program requires ON time to be set, and then OFF time to be set For example you set Program1 ON 5:00PM for ALL days. And then you set Program1 OFF 11PM for ALL days. Minimum on-off set time is 1 minute.
3) Programming steps: Press PROG button until Timer 1 ON appears on display Use Hour button to set 5 PM Use MIN button to set :00 Default selects ALL days (If you want other days, press DAY button until display shows correct block of days) Press PROG button again to save Program1 ON 4) Now for Program1 OFF 5) To set Program1 Off Press PROG button until Timer 1 OFF shows in display.

If you want to set another program, press PROG button until Timer 2 ON displays 7) After setting programs, press Clock button so current time shows. 8) The manual shows one more thing ... if you program the timer during the hours 5-11pm, and the timer should be ON during those hours, you have to 'tell' the timer to turn ON by pressing the manual override ... after that the timer will operate normally.

Problems with Sony RDR-GX300 DVD Recorder....I HAVE THE ORIGINAL REMOTE FOR THIS UNIT AND IT WILL NOT CONTROL IT...BNUT WHEN I POINT IT AT A SONY T.V. IT WILL WORK ON THAT UNIT????


Try changing the "command mode" switch on bottom right corner of remote. Setting 3 is the default code. This setting must match the setting in the system setup menu.

Channel stuck and can't record shows the same night


Your two problems are related - the DVD player lost contact with the local PBS channel, which altered its internal clock.

Add a red, white and yellow cable from one of the outs on the back of the cable box to the slot marked AV1 IN on the back of the Philips. Then redo the channel programming - press the System Menu button and change Tuning Band to CATV - it will then ask you if you want to do an Auto Channel Set - say Yes.

Once it is done with the channel programming, turn the DVD player to whatever channel PBS is on in your area's cable service. Then go back to System Menu - select Clock Set and go to Auto. Alternatively, you can select Manual under Clock Set and change the date by hand).

Good luck!

My dvd recorder DMR-EZ45VEBS COME UP ERROR CODE U80


I get this too, and a little research brought me lots of anecdotes but nothing concrete, but here's was I deduce from the stories...

The unit has an auto-scan feature that periodically checks for new services or channels. Sometimes when it adds one it encounters and error and hangs showing U80. When you're recording it seems the auto-scan doesn't interrupt, so your program will complete. I've had several failures of timed recordings when the unit has stalled before recording was due to start.

Try switching the auto-scan off...

Functions > Others > Display > New service message

Hoepfully that will resolve it, though you will need to manually scan for new services periodically to make sure you don't miss out. At least you'll be on hand if it fails so it won't sit showing U80 for hours!

Don't know how to set the time/clock.


Setting the Clock
Before operating the unit any further, first set the clock built
in this unit.
• When the unit is turned on with CD or tuner selected, press
DISPLAY first to show the clock indication.
1 Press and hold PROGRAM/SET
for more than 2 seconds.
The hour digits start flashing on the
display.
2 Press 4 or ¢ to adjust
the hour, then press
PROGRAM/SET.
The minute digits start flashing on the
display.
3 Press 4 or ¢ to adjust
the minute, then press
PROGRAM/SET.

If there is a power failure
The clock loses the setting and is reset to “AM 12:00.” You need to
set the clock again. If the batteries are inserted in the unit, this has
no effect on the memory.
To show the clock when CD or tuner is selected
Press DISPLAY.
• Each time you press the button, the display changes the clock
indication and the normal indication alternately. (Operating the
unit while clock indication is displayed change the display to the
normal indication.)
