Question about Sony RDR-GX300 DVD Recorder

My DVD Recorder Won't Start

I'm just writing to find out if anyone knows what to do about an ailing Sony RDR-GX330. We had an electrical outage here in town a few months back. What happened was, once the power came back, the DVD recorder just suddenly went ''frozen'' on the Welcome screen.

It practically hangs there without much progress. So far, nothing seems to work... the standard reset procedures, even unplugging the console for the alotted time doesn't help much. There were some times would it would appear to start up okay, only to hang after turning the system on after a good 15-30 seconds or so, after which it goes back to the frozen Welcome screen. I think the only thing that's running is the interior cooling fan. Am I missing something in the reset process, or could it be more than that? Any possible suggestions to get it back up and running properly is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Sometimes, the Sony documentation recommends unplugging the DVD Recorder for at least 30 minutes, instead of the regular 15 seconds. I know this timing makes a difference on DVR's.

CAN VIEW THE DVD ON A COMPUTER OR THE DVD RECORDER BUT NOT ON DVDS PLAYERS BOUGHT BEEFORE THE RECORDER


This is quite common of older players. Some only work with DVD+R discs and others with DVD-R discs.
Some player also does not read recordable discs (an early form to try prevent piracy)
Also make sure if recorded on your Recorder, that the disc is finalized before you try to play it on an older player. (See your menu / manual on the recorder for the procedure)

Command mode


I did the same thing and lost all remote control to the recorder. Try holding ENTER & 3 in unison for as long as it takes (30 secs or more ) to view change on TV screen. This should get u back to system menu where u can change back to dvd 3 (default ) If doesn't work get a one for all remote and enter code 0533 which will get u in to the recorder command lines. PS enter & 3 worked 4 me.
