Question about Onkyo DX-C390 6-Disc CD Changer

Open Question

Buttons and remote

If I leave the unit pugged in, it will come on by itself and go through random plays, pauses, etc., or just stay on and do nothing. Power and other buttons won't respond, and neither will the remote. These also work at random times, but only temporarily.

    Use a surge protection power strip (such as the Power Protect AV 600 by Monster Power).



    This will elliminate erratic behaviour of the unit, since even minute fluctuations in the power source from unbridled house current will affect the sensitive internal components of the Onkyo DX-C390 6-Disc CD Changer.



    After doing this myself, the unit behaves perfectly as it's made to.

Power and other buttons won't respond, and neither will the remote. These also work at random times, but only temporarily. I tried the recommended solution, as it is already plugged into a power strip, still no luck. The red light for the stand by is still on but I can not get the unit to turn on with the power button or remote.

SOURCE: Does not respond

Thank you Tyrina. It worked. To reset it, when powered on you hold the "stop" buttom and the "power on" button simultaneously until it restes and powers down the system.

Is there a random play feature on the sparkle b570 , if so how do i get to it?


The Sparkle b570 does not have a random / shuffle feature, most bluetooth headsets will only have basic, play, pause, next, back, answer call, hang up call. features.
If you want random play, you may have to choose this options on the device your headset is paired with (Cell phone, stereo, computer)

Pauses randomly during films, all front buttons play/pause the dvd


Maybe one or more buttons jammed or wet inside.
Try opening front panel and clean the contacts. If problem persists then it is the buttons controller IC/PCB faulty.

Hi, I recently purchased a Panasonic DVD S48 dvd player. I was assuming when I bought it that it was a multiregion product. This seems not to be the case as it will not play region 1 dvd's that I...


hi Pjkgbr.
this is all i could find out, now if you do try this do so at your own risk.

This hack requires the S48 remote plus a universal remote configured for the S48 with a separate 'Pause' button (or another Panasonic DVD remote with a separate 'Pause' button may work).

I used a cheap universal remote.

1. Select DVD device on remote.

2. Hold magic button until the DVD button blinks twice.

3. Enter device code 0490 (DVD button blinks twice)

Neither the 'Play/Pause' nor 'Frame' buttons on the S48 remote work for this hack.

1. Power on.

2. Open tray.

3. Using the S48 remote press Audio, 1, 9, 8, 2, Subtitle

4. Using the other remote (URC 7562) press Pause.

5. Using the S48 remote press 0.

The DVD front panel should now show the text "on".

The DVD should now be region-free. Region code hack posted by spook65, December 12 2012:

DVD-S48EG-K (Region 2)

This is the process for unlocking, the Panasonic DVD-S48 for
multi-zone.

Please note, you will need a universal remote control which
has a PAUSE button in order to unlock this player.

1. Turn the power ON
2. Open the disc tray
3. Using the remotes, press AUDIO 1 9 8 2 SUBTITLE PAUSE 0
4. Switch the player to STANDBY and then switch ON again.

The display should read ON after you enter PAUSE 0.
If this doesn't happen, switch the player off and start the
sequence again.

The remote supplied with Panasonic player has a PLAY/PAUSE
button rather than a separate PAUSE button. If you use the
PLAY/PAUSE button, the tray will close and the unlock
sequence will be aborted.

To get round this, you need a universal remote set-up to use
with the DVD player. After pressing SUBTITLE on the
Panasonic remote, quickly press the PAUSE button on the
universal remote, then press 0 on the Panasonic remote to
complete to unlock code entry.

or this one.
What is the process for Multizoning a DVD-S38 / DVD-S48 / DVD-S58 / DVD-S68 / DVD-S500 / DVD-S700 DVD Player? Providing your DVD Player is one of the below models, you can multizone the unit yourself using the remote supplied with the product and another Panasonic product remote thas a Pause button on it

Applicable Models:
DVD-S38 / DVD-S48 / DVD-S58 / DVD-S68 / DVD-S500 / DVD-S700

Multizoning Process:
1. Power on the unit and open the disc tray
2. Using the remote that came with the player, press the following buttons in sequence
3. AUDIO 1 9 8 2
4. SUBTITLE
5. Using the other Panasonic Remote (not the one that came with the player), press the PAUSE button
6. On the remote that came with the DVD player, press the 0 (zero) button
7. If you have followed the above process correctly, the word ON should be shown on the front panel display of the player*1

*1 Please note: The models DVD-S500 and DVD-S700 do not have a front panel display,
so the only way of confirming that the multizoning process has been done correctly, is to
try playing a DVD disc from another region code other than region 4

I bought the JBL 200ID and I love the sound but I have had two of them now and it will pause itself and go to another song in the middle of one. This is the second one that has done this. Has anybody else...


I have the same unit and have the EXACT same problem - random pausing and resuming from an intended pause, and skipping songs at random. I only experience this after I have used the remote to PAUSE the music. And when I have the problem, only way to reset it back to reliable behavior is to pull the plug and leave power off it. It's a firmware problem, nothing to do with the connection. I've tried it with 4 different Apple devices ranging from 2nd GEN NANO up to various models of iPhone including the 5. They all do it, BUT only after I use the remote. The remote is IR based and I do not have it even close to pointing at the base as I thought maybe it was a stuck key on the remote. It's the base and it has a glitch in the firmware. Unfortunately it's not patch-able, we just have to live with it.

My Toshiba SE-R0161 Remote no longer works.


There is most likely nothing wrong with your remote. I just had exactly the same issue with my SE-R0161 remote. (I had just changed my remote batteries too and was getting a DR-2 code on the Toshiba DVR RD-XS52 unit's display.) My DVR and my remote had to be realigned so that they both have the same infared (IR) code. The remote and the DVR can have DR 1, DR 2 or DR 3 as remote codes. Pg 54 of the Toshiba Installation Manual explains how to align both your SE-R0161 and your based unit so that the remote works again. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Activities button won't work


Have you tried the "help" button? That usually rights anything wrong with the unit, by itself.

If not, connect it to a PC, and let it re-program itself.
