Question about Sony RDR-VX530 DVD Recorder/VCR
Dvd is stopped on mode 1/dvd 1/cant change because my remote doesnt work
Both remote and the main unit has a default command mode. and that is command mode 3. if you may have accidentally browsed thru the menu of the dvd/vcr recorder and set the command mode to 1 , that may have caused teh issue. Solution: if you have the supplied remote rmtd224a, just slide the bottom front cover lid. There is a small white sticker on the right bottom corner that you can peel out and you can see mode 1 2 3. slide the switch to the appropriate command mode setting of dvd. Ex: if remote is not working then the unit displays DVD1 when pressing a button, the command mode setting of your dvd player is command mode 1 and thus the switch on the remote should be on mode 1. This should surely help you.

Slide the bottom part of the remote control down. Switch the bottom right button to DVD 1. There might be a white sticker that covers it so remove the sticker first. Then hold down the "Enter" button and the "1" button down at the same time for a few seconds. That should make the remote work again.

Okay this took all day to figure out because I too was stuck in "DVD1" and the remote wouldn't work and there are no controls on the unit itself and don't even get me started on the manual. (Why I didn't start at the back of the book and work forward... I should know it's always on the next to last page!)
Anyway, did you know the "bottom" half of the remote control slides down to reveal other keys? I didn't, but once you "slide" it down at the very bottom right hand corner is a "Command Control Slide" move it over to DVD1 hit "System Menu" and go to settings and reset it to dvd3. (If you want....)

Hold down enter key then the number 1 key at the same time for at least 3 seconds, Now your remote is also set to DVD1 and you can now turn off the recorder. Turn the recorder back on and hit menu and change the recorder back to DVD3 and change your remote back to DVD3 by holding down the enter key then the number 3 key for at least 3 seconds.
