    I tried what the manual says but I was unsuccessful. The problem is with the remote i think. No matter what I press on the remote, I get the dvd1 on the recorder but I have no control of the player. I also have lost access to the system menu by doing this. please help. The manual also says that if the recorder is switched to dvd1 or dvd2 then you will lose control of the player. Which I have. What do I do?

    Thanks. I'll give it a try.

  • joepoll Mar 08, 2008

    Thank you sir. I was misunderstanding what the manual says. 3 kids and a wife is what I blame it on. Thanks for saving me from filing it under "G". Thats garbage to all you people not from PA.

    Same problem my brother currently has w/ the Sony RDRGX 355. He tried what the manual says but has bee was unsuccessful. The problem is with the remote menu. No matter what he presses on the remote, he's getting the dvd1 on the recorder but he has no control of the player. He also lost access to the system menu by doing this. The manual also says that if the recorder is switched to dvd1 or dvd2 then you will lose control of the player, which he has. Is there anyway of resetting it? The manuel seems to be no good to solve this dilema

    The website mentioned in the solution,http://129.33.22.12/release/, is no longer functioning. Does anyone have a replacement or equivalent site to visit for these instructions?

  • andyshirsch Sep 18, 2008

    I see the dialog, but have not found the solution.  Where are the comments on how to fix this problem?  It has just happened to me and I can't figure this out.  Also, the pdf is not opening up.

I was able to fix the problem by using my sony universal remote which allowed me to go into the set-up mode and switch dvd1 back to dvd3 and everything works fine now. I turned off the dvd player first so that the setup would not read the dvd i had in the player. When you power on the player, hit set up on your universal remote and then find out what buttons on your remote will allow you to go through the menu until you can make the change. I hope it works, it worked for me and now i'll never play around with that function again

My kid lost my remote completely and I have not been able to use anything but the buttons on the face...


Looking for some codes to program another remote.

Don't think it's gong to turn up since he likes to throw stuff in the trash can.

Go to this web page and check page 23 for instructions on setting the remotes command mode, you will want to set it to 1. http://129.33.22.12/release/RDRGX355.pdf

    Once again you have to switch the remote to the command mode that the player is on. What I send you was information on changing the remotes settings not the dvd player.

I accidentally changed the command code from dvd3 to dvd1 and now my remote doesn't work, and I don't know how to access the systems menu to change it back.


Hi,
Since unit has been set on DVD1 remote mode so you need to set remote control itself on dvd1 mode to communicate with unit.
Press and hold Enter and 1 numeric key on remote control for 5 seconds, this will change remote control to dvd1 mode, now unit will accept remote control signal and you can operate it normally.
Thanks.

Command codes


Try to reset the player :You can also try a hard reset: Unplug unit from AC mains and remove all cables from unit. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the unit and see if it works..if this fails then you need Restart the recorder Press down power switch for more than 10 seconds until Sony DVD appears this will set to default factory setting in the player.....

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!

Remote doesn't work


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.
