Question about Sony RDR-VX530 DVD Recorder/VCR
Trying to help someone with Sony RDR-VX530. We are unable to get it to change TV channels on the built in tuner. This is true from both the remote and by pressing the + - buttons on the front panel. It did work until about a week ago. Remote appears to work, but put in fresh batteries anyway with no change. Troubleshooting section in manual notes two causes: a recording timer affecting channel selection and a disabled channel. Have cleared all timers (there was only one), and using setup have auto programed channels and even added channels manually. Still cannot change channels. Interestingly, when manually adding channels, whatever channel I am on when exiting becomes the channel the tuner is "stuck" on after exiting setup.
Some dvd/vhs tuners do have this locked issue and since poor qc or qa on the manuf. part , they think since items are low cost anyways buy another one.
