Question about Sony Dvcam DSR-PD150 DV Digital Camcorder

Menu items revert to default after removing battery

All of a sudden after I remove a battery from the camcorder, the menu settings go to default. Does this machine have an internal battery? Could it have something to do with replacing the Sony batteries with less expensive ones (Synergy Digital)?

    Stored menu selections revert to default after removing battery pack.
    Sony technical says internal battery is soldered to circuit board inside camcorder. To my surprise, he said the battery should be replaced once a year by the Sony service center ($$$$$). He also said the battery is NOT rechargeable! Has anyone replaced the battery themselves? I have an electronics background and am not afraid to get into the guts- but need to know where it is.

Yes, there is a small internal battery--I need to just be sure that I use or charge a battery on the camcorder at least once every 4 months.

How to reset my dvr


All brands of security DVR's have a reset feature in the menu, in the general menu there should be shut down, reboot and other choices. If you need a complete reset you will need the owners manual that will direct you to a switch or terminal on the board, and will also instruct you to remove the disc battery that retains memory. If you want to try something just removed that battery for three or four minutes, and it will at least revert to the original default settings. GOOD LUCK.

Restoring Default Settings
To restore factory default settings to your DVR:
1. Enter the Factory Default menu, by going to Main Menu > Maintenance > Factory Default.

2. Select the OK button to restore factory defaults or select the Cancel button to return to the previous menu.
Note: Network information such as IP address, subnet mask and gateway will not be restored.

hope thid helps. and you can also try removing all power from unit if it does not have inturnal battery. if it does have an internal battery after removing all external power you will have to remove battery to completely reset. Note the latter suggestion will void warrenty if you have to open the unit to remove the battery.
GOOD LUCK :-)

Reset default camera says busy


Give the camera some time. Don't remove the battery till the reset is done. I hope your battery was charged before you started the reset.
If the battery runs out of power, you must charge it comlpete, before putting it in again. I hope the reset went well. If not only try a reset with a fully charged battery.

Reset printer


Please print printer settings configuration page. The page will explain the printer menus and change values. Menus are represented by Continue, Ready/Data, Toner Low and Load/Remove Paper light sequences. Menu Items and their values are indicated by Paper Jam and Error Light sequences

Here are the instructions to do that:

1. Turn off the printer.

2. Open the front access cover

3. Press and hold the red Stop button while powering up the printer.

4. The lights should cycle, release it when the light stops cycling.

5. Close the cover once the ! light displays

6. The lights should cycle again.

7. Then press the Continue button.

8. This should print a Printer Diagnostics page.

9. On the Printer diagnostic page, Use the Utilities menu to troubleshoot printer problems

- Return the printer settings to factory default values.

- Sometimes resetting the printer to the original settings solves formatting problems.

- All menu items are reset to the factory default values except:

- All settings in the Parallel menu, Network menu, and USB menu.

- All downloaded resources (fonts, macros, and symbol sets) in printer memory (RAM) are deleted.

- Resources in flash memory are unaffected.

10. Please locate the value that would say "Factory Defaults".

11. We would need to follow the exact light sequence that you see for the "Factory Defaults".

12. Press and release the Cancel button to advance through the menus and the menu items to the one we would need.

13. Press and hold the Continue button until all the lights cycle to save the function/value.

14. Restart the printer.

Can't change date or time on my new Pentax K2000


Date/time are set at "first use" or through the tools menu.
Remove the batteries.  Leave the camera overnight, this may be enough to lose the current settings and allow setting new date/time.
Press Menu button.
Press right arrow on the 4-way controller to get the Tools (spanner) highlighted.
Press down arrow to get to date (or time).
Press right arrow
Now set to your preferred format.

If this does not work, try changing another item in the Tools menu.  If that change is not accepted, then it's into the dealer.

Where is menu on switch


According to the manual, the Menu button is on the rear of the camcorder, just below the battery. Pressing this button activates the menu, and using the dial on the lower left side of the camcorder allows scrolling and selection (press the dial in) of menu items.

I need to set the camcorder to default settings


For most models, removing the battery pack from the camcorder will restore the default settings; however, some models which contain an EZ Q button, store your settings and removing the battery pack will have no impact on these settings. The Lithium battery maintains the clock function and preset contents of the memory; even if the Battery pack or AC Power adapter is removed. Removing the Lithium Battery along with the Battery pack will restore the default settings.
