Question about Philips DVDR3455H/37B

1 Answer

Problem with Remote or with Device? You decide.

I have a Philips DVD Recorder that I bought from Ebay. Interestingly, the recorder responds to some of the buttons on the remote, but others, like the "setup" button, it will not respond to. My question is, "How likely is it that the problem is with the remote and not with the unit itself?" It seems logical to me that if the unit was faulty (i.e., the remote receiver), then the remote wouldn't work at all, but I'm looking for an expert's opinion here.

Press and hold the DVD/VCR button located on the top of the remote until allthe mode buttons at the top of the remote light up, then release. Use thenumber buttons to enter one of the codes for your Philips Magnavox DVD Recorder, then pressthe pound (#) button.
