I have the same exact problem with my DVR-C300, just happened two days ago. Ironically enough, I bought this system about five years ago as a floor model, and it didn't come with a remote; I just ordered up a remote, and the day the remote came in the mail, the system stopped working.
I've taken off the top cover by removing the seven T-10 screws, and cleaned off the laser lense with a cotton ball, still no luck.
I read elsewhere that if the spindle motor (proper name?) is not spinning the discs fast enough, it will not read, and you may need to replace the motor (looks fairly simple). However, the problem is, I never bothered to pop the top and see how fast it spun the discs before this problem, so I have nothing to compare the current speed to.
Depending on which part or parts it may be, it may be more cost effective to purchase a new one (I've found some that are still in the factory seals for around $130).
- Single item, or fixed. This unit will only operate the unit it came with - Multi function, this type can operate the unit it came with and a fixed set of other types. Normally the remote comes with a list of supported device it could work with. - Learning, the combine both a predefined list with the ability to learn functions by sensing input from the original remote. - Programable. These are the newest remotes that work like multifunction but the list is maintained by the manufacturer and down loadable from the web.
I would guess that the DVR has a multi function remote. If you can't find the specific Yamaha in the list, then try another brand, this could take a while.
Some multi function remotes have an option that allow a semi automatic configuration. You turn on the item and then using a special key sequence try to turn off the device. once the item turns off you should be able to control it.
If you can't the Yamaha has a learning remote. If you really want an easy solution try looking at a programmable remote. I just got a Logitech, (Harrmony). Life has never been so easy.
