Question about Pioneer DVR-520H DVD Recorder
I am looking for a Remote control (VXX 2934) for my Pioneer dvr 520H.
Posted by Anonymous on
If I need a Pioneer remote for a hard Disc Video Recorder I look at ebay first then the on line major remote suppliers. You can often get a good remote for $20-$35 at eBay the replacement places want $150 for not to mention many of the replacement remotes for older offered units are some sort of replacement unit which does not work as well as the real thing.
I'm in the process of repairing a Pioneer DVD Recorder remote it is done by removing five screws (including three hidden under the battery compartment cover) gentily separating the unit and taking out the soft pad. The contacts on the bottom of the pad were coated with conductive material so when you push the button the circuit is completed. Over time this material wears off so you have to push harder and harder and finally it does not work.
You can buy conductive paint on eBay and clean and repaint the bottom of the contacts which fixes this most of the time. Your fault may be a bad board in the remote but more often it is just the lack of a conductive coating on the bottom contact area of the button.
If you can't find the remote you need try to fix yours as I have noted it is worth the hassle. I recently found a remote for an arcane Sony MD Recorder for $2 at esale I balked at paying $65 for on ebay so if you are patient an live in a metro area with a lot of people donating to resale this might be another possiblity.
I hope this helps you...

I've seen this problem somewhere before, ran across it on a service call or something and I just can't remember where.. Just getting old I guess.. You should have a "Return" button on the remote. Press it and the "2"... That should allow you to access the unit again. What you've done basically is set the unit up as unit 2 and you could have as many as 3 identical units all operating from the same remote. So, Pioneer, in their infinite wisdom decided to make three specific designation points and allow you to switch the remote to access each one without disturbing the rest... If this doesn't solve the problem you might try calling Pioneer support, 800-421-1404 and they should clearly be able to help. Good Luck Bill

hello, your DVD did come with a manual I guess.Talking about universal remote,I think it comes with a manual.You can request for a new universal remote control with a manual that contains the code of the device you are using.If not you could also buy the appropriate remote control for your device at an electronic store where they sell elect products, or better still, buy the remote from the place you bought your device. if you experience anymore problems operating your device pls feel free to let me know.
