Re: DVR-510H

Not sure which code you mean. If you are talking about the region code, you need to use the service remote, which is available only to dealers. However, you can do a search and find that there is a company in UK that will rent you a service remote for this purpose. Be prepared to pay up to $50 for this service.

see for example

Good luck

Pioneer DVR-310S LSI NG problem

I have been told LSI NG on my Pioneer 510 HDD Recorder refers to failure of the large Scale Intigraton Chip (LSI for short) so it is saying the L.S.I. Chip is No Good.

Some have commented elsewhere this might be a failure of a hard disk leading to this and to try and change the HDD out and see if the failure continues as this may cause the LSI statement...

My service tech just told me this is plausible but unlikely and the Pioneer 310/510 DVD Recorders are getting old and the LSI chips are starting to fail on them.

I regret to say the recorder is probably failing on you due to it's age. My tech commented to me these are supposedly good for five years and their current age is almost 11 years.

Remainig use life depends on the unit and how much it has been used. We got into this with a failed DVD burner on our unit which you use to burn from the HDD Hard Disk in the 510 (the 310 is a DVD Recorder only).

Just a note on servicing these units. If you remove the DVDR or HDD you then need a service remote and service DVD on these units to reset the code in the units or they will not work.

If you open them up and start disconnecting the drives and don't have these tools you will not be able to reset them and the units will not work even if there is no problem (so you have been forewarned about this).

I'd check on line for a refub unit as there are very few qualified techs to deal with these and many lack the tools for these old units. People like them because they have many great features but are no longer made. I was told all of the 510's were made within six months in I believe 2003 or 2004...

I just bought the CH-DVR 1600 @ Target. This is just a temporary workaround to enable playing of region 2 DVD disks (don't have other regions but believe it will work also), until the real regional unlock is available.

1. Insert the region 2 DVD disk and close the tray.
2. Wait for the "Wrong Region" popup to appear in the upper-right corner of your TV screen.
3. The display on your DRV reads "STOP" at this point and the "Wrong Region" popup has disappeared.
4. Press the number "1" button on your DVR remote and a small input popup will appear in the upper-left corner of your screen.
5. Do not press anything else and the DVR will accept this entry as a chapter # and proceed to this chapter to start playing the movie.

NOTE1: The DVR runs in a somewhat restricted node, e.g. the DVR display still reads "STOP" and some remote functions do not work, such as "Menu". The input numbers correspond to the chapters on the DVD disk, so you can experiment and get to the menu once you hit one of the extra feature chapters with a "back to the menu" link on it.

NOTE2: I’m anxiously awaiting the real unlock sequence, as I tried most of the old ones posted here, none seemed to work.

also try this
-Switch player ON with no disc in the tray. Close tray and press MENU, 1, and 9 on the remote control. A menu should appear with the Region Option. Highlight the Region entry and press ENTER on the remote. Type in the Region you want. (Put 0 for code free) Press ENTER again to confirm choice. Press OPEN/CLOSE TRAY button and put in movie.

Signal restricted

If your sat dvr is a High Defenition DVR their is a good chance this is being blocked from being copied because of the copyright protection of HDMI...tru to copy to your DVD using just the comosite outs of your sat box...the yellow cable and see if this fixes the problem.
