Don't feel bad or dumb. Virtually everyone (including me) made the same mistake you did. The owner's manual does explain the entire process thoroughly and correctly, on pages 30-31 under TIMER RECORDING.

Using the TIMER button on the remote control permits you to build a list of up to (8) future video programming event(s) you wish to record. You performed that part of the process exactly right. However, you merely failed to place the unit in the STANDBY MODE by pressing the TIMER SET button on the remote control, which is the FINAL step in the process!

Placing the unit in STANDBY MODE effectively powers it down, just as if you'd turned it OFF as you normally do. The difference being, when the unit's in STANDY MODE it'll automatically turn itself ON, tune to the correct channel and begin recording at the start-time specified, in the entry you made using the TIMER menu. Certainly, it would've been far more intuitive if they'd named the button STANDBY instead of TIMER SET.

If you want to use your DVDR in the meanwhile to view a DVD or VHS movie, just press the TIMER SET button on the remote control again to take it out of STANDBY mode. Just be darn sure to reinsert a BLANK DVD back in the tray and place the unit back in STANDY MODE again, once you're done.

While overseas products (such as those made in China) are dazzlingly low in cost (due to slave labor wages) we must remember the documentation's written by people whose native language and culture is NOT the same as ours. This becomes painfully apparent upon having to decipher the documentation accompanying such products.

Let me know if you need any further help

Hi,

You can do a hard reset buy unpluging all the cords from the back of the player for 30min and then plug it back.

Goodluck..

Try disconnecting from power and connecting back, if it does not fix it bring it back, it is faulty.

I got bush TV cant get off device cuz havent got remite


Purchase a Logitec Harmony remote. When you set it up, the software asks for the device you intend to control. Enter in your make, and model number. After the remote setup is complete, you should be able to control it.

I would check on the logitec website (logitec.com) before you purchase to make sure your device is supported before making the purchase. But they support just about anything under the sun.

My factory DVD player will except disc the ejects it


If I understand your rather cryptic post correctly...

This very well could be a Blue-Ray disk loaded into a
non-Blue-Ray capable DVD player. Your car player's capabilities MUST match the disc, otherwise, the disc won't play.

I've run into this very same problem with my home DVD players. Which both are non-Blue-Ray capable, but I was able to verify the Blue-Ray discs on my PC.

I have one of these with the same problem. I couldn't find any others with answers but there are people giving answers about the DMR-EX75 showing the same problem due to power supply decoupling capacitor failure.
I just ordered a manual for mine from manualzone.com to try to locate the culprits. - Wish me luck!
