Question about Sony RDR-HX825 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

4 Answers

Disk Tray I have Sony RDR HX710 dvd Recorder. Does anybody know ho to open disk tray without having power on? Hello, Very often, I can't open the tray of my Sony RDR-HX825; I have to do the way it's written in the manual, : (unplung the cord, then replug it while depressing the eject button !!!) but it takes a long time; it does'nt work each time, and more, after that the Error message C31:00 is displayed on the screen. I can't ask my wife or children to follow this process in order to read a DVD. I will be glad to know how it's possible to resolve this issue. Regards mouspi

    Thank you Hollyecho, but there isn't a tiny hole under the tray on the front side; I saw on the net that you have to take off the cover of the RDR to reach this hole !!!

    Regards

  1. Ensure the child lock feature is disabled.
  2. IMPORTANT: If necessary, consult the instruction manual for specific steps about how to disable the child lock feature.
  3. Attempt to open the disc tray.
  4. If the issue is not resolved, turn off the DVD player.
  5. Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds.
  6. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
  7. Attempt to open the disc tray.
  8. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the POWER+STOP+EJECT buttons; this will sometimes cause the disc tray to open.
If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required. The Sony® eService Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.

There should be a small hole around the tray that you can stick a paper clip into to open the tray. The error on the other hand would be a cleaning error problem I believe and you can try cleaning the laser with either a soft cloth or a dvd cleaner. good luck with this

    you can try contacting sony about this problem at 800-488-7669.

    Unfortunately the only other way to open the tray is by opening the casing and turning the gears to release the tray

Hi,

See if there is a little pin hole in the face plate or bezel of your dvd player... stick a paper clip in it and it will release your DVD tray and you can get your DVD out.


Goodluck,

Using a straighted paper clip *I use a pretty cake tester* - insert it in the tiny small hole just under the tray. When you push, it will manually push the tray open.

Good Luck.

It wont play the dvd it is not the dvd its the player


The dvd lens in your system is probably dirty from sitting and normal use. Every so often we are supposed to clean the lens. Taking it apart is a more complicated process but purchasing a lens cleaning kit and cd and following the instructions below should do the trick.

  • DVD lens cleaning kit, you can purchase at many local stores or online. Walmart should have it as well as amazon.
  1. Place the lens cleaning disk into your DVD player's tray bristle side down. (The DVD will have a small row of fine bristles used to clean the DVD heads.) Push in the tray.
  2. Listen to the instructions for your DVD head cleaner. You should be able to find the instructions on Track 1 of the DVD cleaning disk.
  3. Choose an option from the on-screen prompts. You will have choices like express cleaning or standard.
  4. Remove the cleaning disk once it has run its course. Your Panasonic DVD player heads should now be clean

I've not found one, no, but I have managed to strip the machine down, get the disc out and rebuild... I guess this is too late for you but it's simple enough if you're still trying.

Rubber band lose


It connects on from the big circle to the little circle. The little circle might be under the tray but you might be able to get it on with some tweezers.
