Pioneer dvd recorder dvr 310

I went into the menu options and accidently set the remote to the 2 setting. what this did was make my remote not work anymore, is there any way to reset this to default without the remote??? DVR says it's recording from cable, but when I try to play it on the same machine it plays but I have no audio or video. I've checked the connections and tried changing the channel it's recording on.

HI,

There are two ways to reset the player:
1)Try unplugging it from all power and leave it unplugged for several hours. Sometimes it resets all settings to the factory defaults.

2) Use this procedure to reset all the player’s
settings to the factory default.:

1. Switch the player into standby.
2. Using the front panel buttons, hold
down the

(stop) button and press

STANDBY/ON to switch the player back
on.
All the player’s settings are now reset.


Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

Resetting the Recorder to Factory Settings
1. Make sure that the recorder is on
2. Press and hold the STOP button and STANDBY/ON button.
The recorder turns off with all settings reset.

Try this and let me know if it works.

Go to the menu button on your dvr look closely it wil tell you what button to use. Once there go back to setup and undo what you did. After this go into the menu where it says restore to factory settings and restore it to the factory settings. This will resolve your problem.

Can not get my sony dvd to get off of dvd1 and it is now locked u


Go to your DVR and manually turn the DVR off. Press the STOP button for
two or three seconds. The DVR COMMAND MODE setting will display in the
DVR window. (DVD1, DVD2 or DVD3)

Set the remote to the COMMAND MODE setting that was diaplayed by depressing
both the remote ENTER key and the desired number key (1, 2 or 3) and holding
them both at the same time for 3 seconds.

You can now use the remote to set the DVR to the desired COMMAND MODE.
To do this depress SYSTEM MENU on the remote and go to SETTINGS and then
COMMAND MODE. Select either DVD1, DVD2 or DVD3. Once you delect a setting
that is different from what was set, your remote will stop working again.

Reset your remote to the desired COMMAND MODE by depressing the remote ENTER
key and the desired number key (1, 2 or 3) and holding them both at the same
time for 3 seconds. The remote should now control the DVR.

Remote control


I called a Tech @ Panasonic and he told me to point and hold the "OK" button and the number 2 for about 10 seconds. Then I pressed the power button for the DVD recorder and it worked.

A lot of the functionality you are wanting is tied to the remote that you have misplaced. You can go to the Pioneer support site and order a new remote, though it is like $30.

As for wiring options to record, it depends on the inputs and outputs that are available on your television.
- Ideally, connect VCR to TV input "1", connect DVR output to TV input "2", and conect TV output to DVR. This will help you avoid any copy protection issues you run into, but not all TV sets have both audio and video output.
- If you don't have TV outputs, connect VCR out to DVR in, and then DVR out to TV in. This will definitely work, but you will have to have the DVR turned on to watch a VCR tape.

I've seen this problem somewhere before, ran across it on a service call or something and I just can't remember where.. Just getting old I guess.. You should have a "Return" button on the remote. Press it and the "2"... That should allow you to access the unit again. What you've done basically is set the unit up as unit 2 and you could have as many as 3 identical units all operating from the same remote. So, Pioneer, in their infinite wisdom decided to make three specific designation points and allow you to switch the remote to access each one without disturbing the rest... If this doesn't solve the problem you might try calling Pioneer support, 800-421-1404 and they should clearly be able to help. Good Luck Bill
