Turn off recorder. Hold the on/off button on the dvd player for a few seconds. until "CHILD LOCK" disappears. The child lock is now disengaged...Check page 37 in the manual (I found it online -- same thing happened to my player -- I just freed it)

Can not record or playback on sony rdr hxd 890 Help please from a repairer. rdr hxd 890


http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/product/RDR-HXD890/downloads/FW_DVDR_124 Make sure the ribbon cable going to the laser head from the main board is seated correctly at both ends. Use a scope to verify signals present at the input to the laser. If not then find where it stops on the main board. If it is present then replace the laser mechanism.

Can't get rid off L2 message on the recorder.


If I'm understanding this as what I think it is - that's not an error message at all! It's the input your recorder is currently set on (I'm talking about the "L2" shown in the right side of the LED display when the unit is powered on, where the channel number would usually be.) In order to change that, you have to open the bottom flap on the front of the machine (or slide open the remote bottom for the record controls to be exposed,) and press the "Input Select" button twice until it cycles through L3 and ends on whatever channel you last left it on - I think it defaults to 100 if the power has been interrupted. When you press this button after that, it would cycle through "L1", "L2", "L3", and the channel input (or coaxial cable input, to be exact), as expected. I know of no other "L2" message you might be speaking of. If I'm incorrect on this, I apologize. But I hope I'm not and that this simple issue is all that is causing you a headache! Good luck! And by the way, "L1,2, & 3" are the RCA/S-Video inputs on the back (L1 and L3) and on the front (L2) of your machine for various things you might plug in (video cameras, etc.) Note: For L1 and L3 ONLY, you have to go into setup to select whether you will be using the RCA yellow or S-Video jack on the back of the machine for the video of that particular input (with no bearing on the RCA audio jacks for that particular input - they're always used...) - the front L2 input evidently selects on its own between S-Video and the RCA yellow plug, based on which plug has something plugged in. I haven't tested to see which it will select if they are both occupied with a plug on L2. I don't mean to treat you like an idiot -- please don't take it that way - but I don't know how much you know about electronics, and IF I'm right about this whole thing, then I'm sort of assuming you aren't too familiar with them. In either case, please know that I mean well, and any information that you already know, just overlook. Thanks, and again, good luck!

I need an English version of the operating instructions for a Sony RDR DC205 DVD Recorder please


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download if available, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and service and Installation Instructions as required.


I hope this helps.

I have the RDR-VX530 video cassette recorder/dvd recorder and a sony DCR-TRV520 digital handycam and i cannot get it to transfer the hi 8 video to a dvd. i use a dv in/out cord and not sure what the...


Check video input setting to DVD recorder...should be set to "External" or "Line". This should activate the video input jacks on the rear of the RDR-VX530 and allow it to "see" your Sony handycam.

HOW DO YOU BURN A DVD ON A SONY DVD RECORDER RDR


Make sure your Sony input signal is on L1 or L3 (the inputs in back of recorder) or on L2 which is for inputs for cameras(located in front).Once you get a signal, you're where you need to be. Choose your recording mode for recording speed (pull down the flap on the remote control for this button and also the input button).
Choose from between1 hour and six hours. To archive really important stuff, stick with the first 3 speeds. TV recording can be on 3, 4 or 6 hour mode.
Push the record/pause button once. This will put the recorder into the record/pause mode and then it awaits you pushing it again to start recording immediately. Just pushing record will force the machine into a 3 to five second delay before actually recording anything so you might mess up and miss the first few seconds of your input. Suggest you use a dvr-rw or dvd+rw to practice on.

When your recording is done, just push the pause again. It stops recording but allows you to add more on to the first recording without starting a new chapter if you want. Just continue to release the pause button to continue.
If you are satisfied that you are finished, then push the pause button to stop recording. Wait for the info to be written(flashing message on screen). When it stops, you may play the dvd.
Notice- since the dvd has not been FINALIZED, you may only play it back on this unit without finalizing. It will not play on other dvd players unless you finalize it first.
To finalize, look on remote for the TOOL button. Press it once. Now push DISC INFO once. Use arrow keys and enter button on remote for the following. Scroll down to FINALIZE and press enter.
Use arrow keys to scroll to OK. push the ENTER button. Finalizing should take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes.

Warning- if titles or chapters are to typed in, it must be done BEFORE finalizing. Finalizing afterwards cannot be done.
Erasing can be done in part or all if using an RW+ or RW- disc
