Remote does not operate clock set or menu

Remote does not operate vcr clock set or menu. this is a philips dvp620vr/17 (vcr/dvd). original remote failed, and they sent me a replacement: pmdvr8. It has different buttons than the original. When I press "display," with tv connected, the tv screen shows clock settting screen with hours, mins, etc, but I cannot get any values to appear for hour, mins, etc. If I press "display" again, the tv displays a "-menu-" with several items, but I cannot get the arrow (>) to move so as to select an item.

Sorry to let you know they sent you the wrong remote for your unit. You need the remote that is on the link below. That remote will not let you change the settings as you have found out. But you can use it to play the machine.

Good Luck and please rate

The VHS side of my DVP620VR/17 quit --- would go forward and backward, but no...

To reset the recorder to factory defaults as if it was just removed from the box - leave the recorder on then press and hold the channel up and down buttons at the same time until it says "Bye" on the display. When it shows the clock it is off - wait a few seconds then turn it back on - you should see the initial setup asking you to choose a language.

Note: You may have to flip down part of the front panel to reveal the channel buttons.

Hi,can i replace dvd reader in philips DVP620VR combo?Producing clicking sound inside disc made no difference,7 years old.Am in New Zealand. Regards Andy

The DVD Drive wasn't available as a complete replacement part so you had to purchase the Laser Unit as an individual part and replace it. I think that the Laser Unit is now discontinued but if you could find a replacement it normally isn't cost effective on a system of this age.

I am trying to get my Radio Shack universal remote (#15-302) to control a Philips DVD/VCR combo (model no. DVP3345V/17). I've read the manual, and there are multiple codes for Philips DVD players and...

If you have a manual for your RS remote , there should be a section on how to search for a code automatically. If not you have to buy the original remote, from Phillips online.
Hope this helps.

Not sure for that exact model, but it'll be in the set up menu under picture or AV settings.

Vcr only plays in black and white

Hi Ryana,

Check if the recorder is set to output in 'S-Video' or 'SuperVideo' mode, if your TV doesn't understand S-Video you'll get a grainy B&W picture. The VCR should be set to output in PAL for the UK and most of Europe.

Hope this helps

Setting up DVD/VCR

Depends how you have connected to the TV.

You will need to set your TV to the relevant socket you have connected the DVD/VCR into.

S-Video, Component , composite etc

These will be EXT 1 , EXT 2 or AV 1, AV 2 etc.
