Question about Sony RDR-VX530 DVD Recorder/VCR

Disk won't load

I watched a dvd this morning with no problems. On trying to watch another one, having made no adjustments to any settings or not even turning the unit off, (and also trying the same dvd that I had played earlier in the day) I see a 'loading' icon on the tv screen but a message saying 'no signal' then on the led display on the dvd player it say's 'No'. Of course then I can't watch the dvd. I have a disc that won't load. It plays on an older dvd player. It's just an ordinary dvd. I can't find anything in the manual that helps.

Hi,

The first thing i would suggest you to do is a hard reset by unpluging the the player for 30min and then try again.

If this does not solve your problem then please see if the player tries to read the disc.
Load a disc and listen.Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track.

If the problem does not get solved then you have to get it repaired.

Goodluck..
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

Try unplugging the DVD for about 30 minutes to let it cool down and try again.
The DVD that you are able to watch on the older DVD, it could be a copy and the newer DVD will not play.

First make power reset.

  • Switch off your DVD, remove power card from wall out-let. Then connect again and power-up.
  • Use CD/DVD lense cleaner to clean the lense.
  • Then try out.
Thanks

I CAN'T GET THE "SET STEM" TO GO ALL THE WAY BACK


I have owned two Tag dive watches. They both have issues with the stem. You have to press it in very hard, then turn it counter clock wise tll it pops out, then you can set the time, which needs to be done (at least on these two) on months with different # days. If the stem won't move, place a few drops of "3 in1" oil, or even olive oil on it, give it a few minutes, dry off the outside, then try again - it always works for me. When pushing it back in, turn it clockwise. The next time you set the time, it'll be ++ easier.

Cant get cd to work keeps saying loading goes no


Since the details of your problem description is sparse, I presume you are trying to load a DVD - not a CD - to watch on your TV. If in fact you ARE trying to watch a CD on your TV - won't work! A CD can be viewed on your computer, but not the TV. They are not interchangeable.

If however you are trying to load a DVD, the disk may me dirty or damaged. Check that the back of the DVD is free from finger prints, marks, or deep scratches. If it is, you may be having some issues with your DVD player. I sometimes have a similar problem that can be resolved only by opening and closing the drawer of the player several times.

Hyundia 7 inch dvd player model hd 719


I had the same problem. With me it was laser lens mechanism problem! the laser block justification needs to be adjusted. there is door button push it while a disk is there (the DVD will think the door is closed) then you will see what happens. Push the block softly till it recognizes the disk. If the disk is recognized it will play flawlessly till you change it or power off. The solution would be to readjust the laser block so you do not have to push it around every time you want to watch a film.

Date setting on Citizen 0510 chronograph


Try this method. Set the date until it reads a couple of days in the past and then set the correct time. Of course do not touch your date or time settings between the hours of 9PM-1AM. Wait until the next day, then move the hour hand forward until you reach the current date with the correct time.

Disk won't load


I would verify that connections between the DVD player and the TV; then go into your DVD’s control panel and re-set to original factory settings. I would also make sure that your TV’s settings are set to the correct connection settings as well.
It would also be nice if you included the make, and model of the DVD player and which connections are you using to connect to the TV.
