    flashing standby, door will not open to insert film.  internet suggested unplugging for 15+ seconds and making sure there is a distance of 10" around all sides of the machine for ventilation.  i tried this and plugged in again, however, now light is solid red without any result.  machine is still not responding.

SOURCE: DVD player stuck in standby mode

Bad caps in the power supply is causing this. C17 (10v,470uf), C17,c14 (10v,1000uf) and C18 (10v,470uf). Replace with same capacitance values but 25 volt rating 85 C. Just fixed mine half hour ago works great.

Stuck on standby mode I have unpluged and it still is stuck on standby

It sounds like power supply problem, I have found that sometimes the main filter capacitor opens causing the machine to fail. It will take a professional to determine if that is the case or there is something else wrong.

Standby mode off

Is there an LED that blinks on the remote when you try to use it?
If not , make sure the batterys are fresh and in the right way.
If nothing works on it , there are places on-line that sells replacements cheaper than Sony

Onkyo DV-SP301 DVD player stuck in standy mode

Had an Onkyo DV-SP301 that would only intermittently come out of standby. Found faulty resistor R2 on the power supply board (board ORTP-865), it was nominally 5600 ohms, measured much higher. This after checking most p/s caps! R2 runs warm when unit is in standby, so you may want to replace with a higher power rated resistor. I used same rating but 10 k ohm instead, worked fine then.

Stuck on Standby

Do a hard reset. Unplug it from the socket, the DVD and leave disconnected for 4 hours. This may or may not help, but it is a necessary step to restore all internal software codes to their factory settings.

Hope this may help;

Try this: Unplug the recorder from power source for about 5 minutes and then reconnect. It will ask you to go through the Easy Setup first. Once you do this, you can set up the command mode.

OK..I see the problem now.. Basically, you have to set both the remote and the recorder to the same command mode. (Default id DVD3). Please see the user manual I have posted in your premium query. It will tell you how to do this on page 22.

Your system is in child lock mode. I had this exact problem this week. You need to put the system into standby mode and then press return, then enter then on/off and it will be unlocked.
