*Take the remote away from the player. Then hold the enter button and the code* 1 or 2 down for 3 sec. and then you will get some use and you can reset factory defaults. Then repeat from * to * reset for code 3. Hope this works for you.

When I burn a DVD (R- or R+) on a Sony RDR-GX300 it burns the DVD which plays on that unit only. If I try to play the DVD burned on Sony RDR-GX300 on any other brand or any other Sony DVD player or even on...


On That Type Of DVD Recorder,( RW,R-R+). You Will Have To Finalize The Disk. Finalizing is Necessary When Playing On Any Equipment Other Than This Recorder.Even IF Your Other DVD Equipment IS ( VR ) Format Compatible You Still Need To Finalize The Disk. After Finalizing,You Cannot Edit or Record on The Disk,Make Sure It's In Video Mode.

I have a sony rdr-gx 360 with no remote and tey are very expensive to replace. can i get a universal remote for this?


Many universal remotes will operate (with some limitation) most SONY products including DVD recorders. You can maybe find a universal remote either on eBay, remotes.com website (or similar addresses) or perhaps your local electronics store has them in stock - and those are relatively cheap to buy off the shelf. It would then be a question of figuring out and entering the right code for it to (minimally) control the unit. The best universals are the all-in-one types although a 4-in-1 works just as well. Elaborate function remotes will cost more than the basic ones.

Problems with Sony RDR-GX300 DVD Recorder....I HAVE THE ORIGINAL REMOTE FOR THIS UNIT AND IT WILL NOT CONTROL IT...BNUT WHEN I POINT IT AT A SONY T.V. IT WILL WORK ON THAT UNIT????


Try changing the "command mode" switch on bottom right corner of remote. Setting 3 is the default code. This setting must match the setting in the system setup menu.

Need 3 digit code for controlling sony rdr-gx7 dvd recorder with my time warner cable remote.


This is a common problem for the Sony RDR-GX7 dvd recorder.
It seems to occur with various remotes (DirectTV, Bell ExpressVu or in your case, the time warner cable remote).
In most cases, the problem can be solved by using a different remote frequency from the system menu as follows:
Insert a dvd and make sure it is not playing (stopped).
Enter the System Menu then / Setup / Options / Command Mode (this can be done from the access panel on the front of the unit). There are 3 possible values, (DVD1, 2 or 3), try changing it.
Then enter one of the suggested codes for your Warner remote (in my case, for Bell ExpressVu I selected the DVD1 command mode
and I used 883 as the 3-digit code. The up and down arrows are not functional with this code but I bypass this problem by entering the menu item number. Good luck!

HOW DO YOU BURN A DVD ON A SONY DVD RECORDER RDR


Make sure your Sony input signal is on L1 or L3 (the inputs in back of recorder) or on L2 which is for inputs for cameras(located in front).Once you get a signal, you're where you need to be. Choose your recording mode for recording speed (pull down the flap on the remote control for this button and also the input button).
Choose from between1 hour and six hours. To archive really important stuff, stick with the first 3 speeds. TV recording can be on 3, 4 or 6 hour mode.
Push the record/pause button once. This will put the recorder into the record/pause mode and then it awaits you pushing it again to start recording immediately. Just pushing record will force the machine into a 3 to five second delay before actually recording anything so you might mess up and miss the first few seconds of your input. Suggest you use a dvr-rw or dvd+rw to practice on.

When your recording is done, just push the pause again. It stops recording but allows you to add more on to the first recording without starting a new chapter if you want. Just continue to release the pause button to continue.
If you are satisfied that you are finished, then push the pause button to stop recording. Wait for the info to be written(flashing message on screen). When it stops, you may play the dvd.
Notice- since the dvd has not been FINALIZED, you may only play it back on this unit without finalizing. It will not play on other dvd players unless you finalize it first.
To finalize, look on remote for the TOOL button. Press it once. Now push DISC INFO once. Use arrow keys and enter button on remote for the following. Scroll down to FINALIZE and press enter.
Use arrow keys to scroll to OK. push the ENTER button. Finalizing should take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes.

Warning- if titles or chapters are to typed in, it must be done BEFORE finalizing. Finalizing afterwards cannot be done.
Erasing can be done in part or all if using an RW+ or RW- disc

Locked out of the menue ,Need to reset command mode


Indeed, I did the same thing.... I did find the answer in the manual!
Here's a copy of it (pg 23):

Set the command mode for the remote so it matches
the command mode for the recorder you set above.
1 Hold down ENTER
2 While holding down ENTER, enter the
command mode code number using the
number buttons.
Command Mode Code number
DVD1 number button 1
DVD2 number button 2
DVD3 number button 3
3 Hold down both the number buttons and
ENTER at the same time for more than 3
seconds.
4 Let up, press RETURN, all done!

Switched to command mode DVD1(I know...) book: you will be unable to operate this recorder. That's all they wrote. Can't undo. Nothing works-screen freeze. HELP???


To solve the problem you need to change the command code on the remote control to 1. Point the remote to the unit, and press 1 on the remote.

I had the same problem also.

Remote & recorder RDR-VXD655 have different DVD command #'s.


Follow-up to the person who quoted from page 29 of the manual: Not sure if this will work w/the particular remote you have, but for the remote that ships w/RDR-VXD655 you can change the command mode in which it is operating by holding the Enter key on the remote and pressing the respective digit appearing in the LCD. In your case that means while holding the Enter key, press 1.
