I put a DVD in and was watching it. I hit Stop on the DVD remote twice and all of a sudden I don't have a picture, but I still have sound. We've tried all kinds of scenarios with the TV, to no avail. We've tried the Video and Audio cables and nothing changes. Any suggestions?

Re: I have sound, but no picture
Most of the newer electronics are computer controlled. It is also best to unplug them for a couple of minutes (for a reset), and then try ALL of the TV input choices, as these have a tendency to change and not tell you

If the entire VHS is full then you can easily transfer the VHS contents to the DVD. The video will play while it is recording onto the DVD, but you don't have to have it hooked up to any TV for it to record. Now if you don't know how long the VHS content is that you want to record to DVD, then you will have to hook up the player to a TV so that you can press stop when you reach the end of the content you want recorded. At least this is true in the way that I use to transfer VHS to DVD:
1) Turn on the unit 2) Insert VHS tape 3) Insert DVD-+R or DVD-+ RW 4) Using remote, press VCR 5)Using remote, press play then pause the tape where you want to start recording. 6)Using remote, press DVD 7) Using the remote, press DUBBING. The VHS should start to play and the DVD should start recording
When using this method, don't hit the RECORD button!
To make your BD player you need One for all universal remote control
Full procedure for a oneforall remote is as follows:
1. Press DVD 2. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice. 3. Press 0533
4. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice. 5. Press 994 6. Press Magic Key (don't hold) 7. Press 00189 (if your oneforall remote uses 4 digit or 3 digit codes, use less leading zeros) 8. Press 1 ( this sets it to key 1 - it flashes twice )
9. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice. 10. Press 994 11. Press Magic Key (don't hold) 12. Press 00255 13. Press 2 ( this sets it to key 2 - it flashes twice )
14. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice. 15. Press 994 16. Press Magic Key (don't hold) 17. Press 00095 18. Press 3 ( this sets it to key 3 - it flashes twice )
19. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice. 20. Press 994 21. Press Magic Key (don't hold) 22. Press 00221 23. Press 4 ( this sets it to key 4 - it flashes twice )
24. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice. 25. Press 994 26. Press Magic Key (don't hold) 27. Press 00079 28. Press 5 ( this sets it to key 5 - it flashes twice )
The remote is now programmed and ready to use, to make the BDV-E370 region free:
1. Use the remote that came with the player to bring the player out of standby, make sure there isn't a disc in it. 2. Press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on the oneforall remote. The 24p light will start flashing. (Centre light) 3. Put the player back into standby with the Sony remote. 4. Hard reboot machine (remove power)to prevent the 24p light flashing indefinitely. 5. Next time you turn on the player it will be region free for DVD playback. ok
Resume function is wiped from the player's memory buffer whenever the unit is switched to standby (either with the [POWER] button on the main unit, the remote or turned off at the wall), the disc is removed, or the [STOP] button is pressed twice (either on the front or via the remote).
(The simplest thing you can try is to insert a DVD, play a few minutes of its main title, press [STOP] once, not twice, leave it for 10 minutes, then press [PLAY] - it should resume, and thus continue your movie from where you left off)
Resume is considered 'temporary memory' in DVD devices, and therefore is not intended to store the playback point of the disc permanently whenever power is lost, [STOP] is pressed twice or discs are ejected.
However, this is relatively normal, and is not a fault, but it can be annoying to the user.
Change the location of the unit, this sounds like an overheating problem. It is too close to other units or is enclosed in a tight space. You may also try putting a small fan behind it to cool it down.
