SOURCE: unable to change the DVD 1 Command Mode back to DVD 3 (DEFAULT) SETTING

Had the same problem when I changed the factory settings by mistake. There is no "cancel" button in the remote or the set. What worked for me was to follow the directions on P. 22 of the manual and change the remote settings to DVD 1. This is done by holding the "Enter" button and pressing number 1 on the keypad simultaneously for more than 5 seconds. Then, you go back to the "Settings" screen with the "Settings" button, change the control back to DVD 3, and reverse the setting in the remote by pressing "Enter" and the number 3 this time. Remember to hold them down more than 5 seconds. Good luck!

1. You would press and hold stop on the front of the unit for 5 seconds then let go and press it again normally, you can try this with both the power of the unit on and off.

SOURCE: Cannot play any dvds - re "rating"


power on, open disc tray.
On the machine, press and hold the record button and add another finger to hold the Play (x1.3) for 5-10 seconds. The door should stay open. The rating will change to 8.

SOURCE: How to reset (manually) factory defaults?

Although not a very visible fix it can be done quickly if you still have your user's manual. Locate your configuring your recorder section of your manual. Get familuar with the system setup - general page. Push the setup button on your remote and navigate yourself through the unclear display using your manual. Then simply toggle between Progressive and Interlace video. Other option using same page in manual and same "blind" procedure just restore your factory setting.
Hopefully fixes your problem or at least points you in the right direction.

According to Sony, if you turn the power on and hold the Enter key and the #1 key down together for at least 3 seconds, everything will default back to factory settings.

Rca drc8295n reset parental codes I bought this unit at a yard sale for five bucks... It plays cd, vhs tapes, but when I put a dvd in it wont play and I see a pad lock on the little display. I am assuming...

Page 55 of the user manual shows a way you may be able to 'reset' the player back to factory defaults and/or if a parental lock has been set and the password is unknown/forgotten:

* Press the STOP button on the front of the unit while you press the STOP button on the remote control-keep pressing both buttons for approximately 3 seconds (until the 'padlock' icon disappears from the front panel display). Release both buttons (the player should be unlocked). If that doesn't work, try resetting the DVD/VCR (instructions are listed below).

* Reset the DVD/VCR: on the front of the unit, press and hold the STANDBY/ON button while you press and hold the STOP button-wait at least 3 seconds before you release both of the buttons.

You'll need to set up your menu preferences because this Reset Procedure returns the DVD/VCR's menus to the factory default settings and also erases the disc library.

( sourced from: )

You can always go to the above site and download the free pdf of the owner's manual for this model if necessary (follow the prompts).

Give the suggestions a try before considering downloading the documentation.

Says not responding when i press play

Just reset it to factory settings. Sometimes improper keying inputs may make the system control confused. Resetting it to fatory settigs will rectify it. to reset it to factory settings do the following.

• Press the (>>') button (in front panel) for more than 5 seconds with no disc

inside. All settings including the password will revert to the factory

settings. • When the factory default settings are restored, all the user data stored in
the persistent storage will be deleted. OK.

Is there a way to do a Factory reset

post back with make and model.

Also not heard of that to be honest but better off checking in the manual or calling the manufacturer and asking.

If you can clarify whats wrong exactly or why you want to restore to factory defaults.

The only thing I can think of is if you press the menu button or go into the settings there is normally a reset to factory defaults in there somewhere.

There is an error in the manual. In order to reset to factory defaults, turn on (with no disc inside), DO NOT OPEN THE DISC TRAY, just press the stop button on the player for 5 seconds (some solutions say 20 seconds).
