Question about Sony DVP-CX995V Multi-disc DVD Player
The player will not enter into TEST MODE as described in the service manual. I have two players and neither one will enter into TEST MODE. The Service Manual explains to use the remote control and press Top Menu, Clear, Power Button (in that sequence) on Standby Mode. But that just turns the Power On/Off
Thought I could add a few suggestions for anyone else experiencing this issue.
1.The SLIDER AT THE TOP OF THE REMOTE MUST be in the DVD Position. The sequence will not work if remote slider is in Disc explorer mode or TV mode. It doesn't specify this in the service manual either.
2. Sometimes it just doesn't work the first couple times, so keep trying. For best results, do the sequence from about 5 feet away, pointing the remote at the receiver on the player (lower left), and slowly and firmly press each button, pausing 1/2 to 1 second between each button press works best for me.
3. Also, it could just be low batteries in the remote and If it still doesn't work and it is worth putting more $$ into try a new remote as suggested already.
Just my 2 cents probably worth noting for future visitors to this question.

On these Sony DVD players we run up against their 'efforts' to defeat DVD piracy. And, even though Courts have determined you have the 'right' to move where ever you want to live, and then watch your already purchased DVDs in that new country the DVD players still will not allow you to view your DVDs.
All that said, should the sequence you entered not work for you, Sony has installed a program in your onboard chipset to defeat your efforts.
I'll take a minute or two to see if there is an alternate method for your particular DVD player. In the long run Sony Customer Support is supposed to help you change this, they are required to do this. But, Sony is a huge company and getting to the right Help Desk of theirs is not an easy hill to climb.
Let me see what I can do and get back to you.
