Question about Samsung DVD-VR357

1 Answer

Please help I've just opened the Samsung DVD-VR357. The remote turns the power on and when I press "menu" the word "menu" appears but when I press the up and down arrows it doesn't do anything. I've tried the instructions for the EZ Record Mode, the Disc Protection and Formatting a Disc but it doesn't work. Please hep!

Re: Please help

I have had that problem in the past and I just pushed the DVD or the VHS button at the top of the remote. Sometimes when it is in a different mode you can get the menu but can't scroll.

Region unlock a Sony DVP-SR500H

Ok here's what I've figured out for Sony dvp sr500h...

To get to the hidden menu, you need to start with the DVD player power OFF
then hit
POWER (to turn the dvd player on)

and you should now see the hidden menu

then go to option 2
then option 4

then this is as far as I can enter codes here but none I've tried have worked....

the ones I've tried so far are 2812, 34570, and 12450

if anyone can figure out the correct code please post here.

Need to reset samsung dvd vr357

With the unit on, hold down the FFW and RW buttons TOGETHER. Do this in front of the unit, NOT ON THE REMOTE CONTROL.

The unit should either open the tray or say REST OK on the front panel.

Hope this helps!!

Wrong region

i used this same procedure^on a different model. The number is entered via remote control pointing to the unit. after entering the right code, there should be a secret menu that will appear when you press setup , mine appeared as preference. On this menu, you can find the region. You can fiddle around, you cannot destroy the unit. The info is here: maybe you can read what the other people have done.
