Replace faulty HDD of Sony RDR-HX725(HDD ERROR).

My Sony RDR-HX725 has a faulty HDD (HDD ERROR) which I try to replace. Whenever I try the solutions provided on this site, my remote control does not work. Any suggestions?
So I can enter the support/service menu, but cannot select option 9 to write the ID.
Thanks in advance

hi, i have the same device, with the same problem, i was told by sony service centre managment that this is a known error that is being researched to find a permanent resolution. They have no fix for it yet and said they will contact me when a solution is available, the only solution at the moment is to manually set timers for programs airing on channel ten, eleven and ONE.

When I switch on my RDR-HX725 IT COMES UP WITH hdd error. What can I do to clear this concern ? I have a lot of stored data that I would prefer not to loose.


Sounds like you are going have to reset your device. When you do some you will loose all the data on your HD. You could always pay to have it taken off before you do this but the cost would be high. For info on these companies or people that perform this service just send me a comment and I can give you a few links to them.

Sony dvd recorder as hdd error


try replacing the red sata cable which runs from the HDD under the DVD drive to the main board on the right-hand side. these are a common problem on these models, there cheap and unreliable. you can purchase a better quality cable from a computer store for little money. HDD ERROR is'nt necessery an HDD fault as i found out with my rdr-hx525. if however the HDD is faulty and you buy a replacement, once installed you will need to pair the new HDD with the unit by entering the service mode by unplugging the AC then while holding down open/close and play together then re-insert the AC lead while still holding open/close and play and wait until you see an "S" in the display then let go and the service mode will appear on the tv screen. go to no.9 HDD mode, press enter then go to no.3 Write ID then it will say "execute write ID?" yes and press enter and then it will say "writing HDD serial ID.... OK" once this is done, exit the service mode by keeping your finger on the power button for approx 10secs. your DVD recorder should now recognise the new HDD. if you don't follow this process, you will still have an HDD error message as your DVD recorder will have your old HDD installed and won't recognise your new one. given the amount of time since you posted this fault, you may still have the unit in question in which case i hope this solution is helpful, or for anyone else with the same problem.

Recording from VCR to HDD


The VCR tape contains a copy inhibitor along it's length, so cannot be copied. the only way to make a copy is to use a truly analog route, without any copyright checking getting in the way. I think this is mentioned in the manual.

Sony RDR -HX725 dvd recorder


I had the same problem, which, curiously, is slightly described in the instructions manual (towards the end) as an electrostatic problem. They tell you to unplug the DVD for 24 hours : it works but does not prevent it for doing the same thing later and, in my experience, in shorter and shorter times.

I decided recently to mount a ground with an electric thread from one screw behind the DVD to the corresponding plug : to day, I still hadn't any problem for seven weeks (compared with one month regularly and eleven days the last time.

Aha ! excuse me, I'm french and perhaps not perfectly bilingual...
